“Bay Club Hotel & Marina- Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

My family and I are from Colorado and were in town for 1 day. We loved thehotel! It was clean, spacious and quiet! My girls loved swimming in the ehated pool while my husband and I enjoyed the jacuzzi! The area surrounding the hotel is absolutely beautiful! We had a great view of the Marina from our patio off the room and it was so picture perfect! The staff is amazing, so kind and helpful! I would definitely recommend this Hotel for anyone staying in the area!

Room Tip: Go for the Marina View!

We recently spent a week at the Bay Club Hotel and found it perfect for our needs. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, and quiet. We had a lovely view of the Marina - it was like looking out at a Monet painting every morning and evening. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Self-parking is convenient and reasonable. We were fortunate to be there the evening of the San Diego Bay "Parade of Lights", with 80 boats, fully decked out in Christmas lights and decorations, floating right past the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our week, and will definitely stay there again!

Quiet hotel. Room was very clean, although dated...bottom of doors chipped, bathroom grout, etc. Most rooms either have a nice view of the marina or of the bay. AC/Heater unit in the room sounded like a rocket launching every time it started. On the up side, the room heated up quickly. On the down side, it woke my wife and I up everytime it started overnight. Breakfast buffet offers lots of options, food quality is average...but was complimentary which was nice. $5 day to park is certainly reasonable, but interesting considering breakfast is free every day. They offer a free WiFi which was spotty in our room and won't let you download certain things (app updates, for example). However they are more than happy to sell you a premium WiFi for a per day charge. Again, not a huge deal, just frustrating when it lists "free WiFi". All in all, I may or may not stay here again...would depend on the deal.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to leave a candid review of our hotel. In order for us to best serve our guests, it is important to hear not only what we do well but the areas in which we have opportunity for improvement. We are certainly glad to hear that you found our hotel quiet, very clean, with nice views and many options for breakfast. In fact, in regards to recent comments from our guests, you may be interested to know that we have changed our breakfast format to one with a fresh, daily hot special and sides accompanied by continental items (oatmeal, fresh fruit, pastries, muffins, toast, juices, etc.).

We are sorry to hear that you experienced challenges with our WiFi service. In order to ensure all of our guests have access to the service, our complimentary WiFi service is primarily designed for checking email and light web browsing. We do offer a paid option if you would like to download music, stream videos or other uses which require more bandwidth. We do hope that you will consider staying with us again the next time your travels bring you to San Diego.

Warmly,
Aaron Willard

We always stay here when in San Diego, Everything about the place is great....location, parking, rooms, breakfast included, nice restaurant and bar. Room is spacious and bright with a view. Can't recommend it highly enough>

Room Tip: We like bayview w/porch on 2nd floor. Even close to elevator where we were is quiet.

Great hopitality and a wonderful location. They were very knowledgable with all areas we asked about. They would call a cab for us when needed. Sunday evenings in December there is the parade of lights on the bay. Numerous boat are decorated and they parade in front of the hotel. It was very festive. It was a very clean hotel. The restaurant staff were also very accomodating with special requests.We would definitely stay again. We felt very comfortable there. Very much worth it!!

We had a nice quiet room on 2 floor with marina view. Room and hotel overall were very cleaned and well maintained . Staff is very friendly and helpful. Excellent complimentary breakfast. Airport transportation is also complimentary. Location is also great: close to public transportation, downtown, airport. A lot of good restaurants in walking distance. Our favorite was Umi sushi. I would certainly recommend this hotel. Hotel parking is 5$/day which is pretty cheap.. Wifi is complementary too.
I was surprised they charge for local calls 50c

Room Tip: Marina view on 2 floor.

We stayed here over thanksgiving and we almost don't want to write a review, because we don't want everyone to find out about this place! It was very nice. Stayed alot of places in San Diego and this was by far the best. Awesome location on shelter island with walking distance to great food. Its a small place so don't have to deal with crowds of people. Parking was reasonable unlike alot of other places in San Diego. Room was modern, all amenities you need. Breakfast was great with a nice view of the harbor while you eat. The staff was SUPER friendly, always greeting you and smiling. Pool and hot tub are older, but work fine and were clean. We travel to San Diego 2 to 3 times a year and will be staying here very time from now on. Great value for the price!

Room Tip: The bridgatine and Miguel's are close with good food. And if you want a drink that will make you...
