We chose the Bay Club & Marina Hotel to layover a couple days before travelling on to Maui. Its close proximity to the airport was important. They provide a shuttle and it is no more than a 10 min ride to the hotel. The shuttle cost per couple was cheaper than using a taxi. We found the staff to be...

I stayed here for my first visit to San Diego to attend a family wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and the view was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful when I was looking for recommendations for things to do while in town. I would definitely stay here again.

When you book ask for bay view, it is well worth it. That's not to say the view over the marina at the rear is not good also. The room was comfortable and well appointed and easy to access via the lift. Breakfast was fine and reasonably priced, with restaurant looking out onto the marina. Plenty of underground parking and...

The hotel COULD be so nice. The location is great, and the price is reasonable. What is frustrating is that the hotel needs SERIOUS remodeling and then it could be a true contender. The lobby is cold, the flooring, paint, door moldings etc. need updating. The rooms are large but dated. The BEST part about the stay is the bed...

This was my first visit to San Diego and I was thrilled to be in such a wonderful location near the water. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. My Bay View room was spotless and spacious, with a nice balcony and view. The location is within minutes of the airport and most attractions and walking distance to...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Its rates are reasonable and the location is charming. The best rooms are on the marina side looking at Point Loma. The staff is so helpful and friendly. Though this is a pretty straight forward hotel/ motel with modest accommodations, it was clean and efficient and had many amenities. Our rooms were a nice...

I love the Bay Club.... have stayed there many times when attending concerts at Humphrey's by the Bay next door.... which is way too pricey for what you get. Park the car at The Bay Club Hotel... I get my Marina View Room.... spacious, clean, nice balcony, beautiful restaurant, bar, deck, patio. Walking distance from anywhere you'd want to go...

This was a first visit to the area and I wanted something near water and charming. This place is great if you want to relax and see the city, but not feel like you are in the city. Our patio looked over the marina. We just soaked up the view watch boats come and good. The birds were chirping. Just...

This hotel has been refreshed, but still needs a lot of work. There were not even grab rails in the shower and that has been a legal requirement under ADA since the first President Bush. The night before our reservation the hotel called me and asked if we could be upgraded from a suite to a one-bedroom suite. I asked...
