We enjoyed our stay at Bay Club. Our room was very comfortable, nice beds, table and chairs plus easy chair. Loved the bay view, watched the USS Nimitz go by while I drank my coffee, Nice! Pool and hot tub area has view of harbor and Point Loma. Close to many nice restaurants. Great walking path along the bay. I would definitely stay here again. Room was pretty clean.

Hotel's Favorite
I found this place on hotels.com and was beyond impressed. Great rate, a great room overlooking the marina, close to the San Diego airport, and every staff member I came in contact with was extraordinary. My only beef was the $10.00 fee for the airport van, but under the circumstances I was so impressed with everything else I’ll let that slide. Don’t hesitate to book here!

Charlestonian13, thank you for the five-star review! We are so glad you found our hotel and enjoyed your marina view room.

We look forward to your next visit.

Loved our three day stay! Being able to sit on the balcony with your morning coffee and watching the boats, helicopters and other Navy equipment was wonderful! Our room was very comfortable and recently renovated except for the bathroom which was fine just the way it was. We would definitely stay again.

My professional group, Yuma-Pacific Southwest Section - American Industrial Hygiene Association just concluded our annual conference at this beautiful hotel. All accommodations - individual rooms, meeting rooms, group lunches and a banquet were very well received by our 50+ attendees. Group lunches and then a wonderful banquet to cap off our meeting were exceptionally good. This is our go-to hotel for our annual meting - this was the tenth time we held our meeting here because members always want to return - members are from all over the US, Canada, England and Mexico.

I stayed here on a business trip for 4 days. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and have a nice view of the marina. The bed was firm and yet soft. The best part of the stay was that it was a quiet stay. You don’t hear your neighbors. Shelter Island Shoreline Park across from the hotel provided a great place for a walk. It was well kept.
