Hotel was reasonably priced, clean, professional & helpful staff. Great location, right on the water and has a fantastic view of the city of San Diego and the Coronado Bridge. Overall good value for the money.

We had stayed at the Bay Club twenty years ago, and we were still pleased, but some things have changed. No longer is parking free, or breakfast included in the room rate. The rooms could use some updating. Be sure to ask for the harborside, and 2nd floor is best for the views. We had reserved a king room, but... More

I recently took my mom to San Diego for her birthday. I couldn't figure out where I wanted to stay. I work for Hyatt and thought for sure we would stay at a Hyatt but we wanted something quiet, not in the heart of the city. This is it! Bay Club Hotel and Marina was by far the best hotel... More

If you stay here only do so if you can get a Marina view. All in all the hotel is ok. The rooms are a bit tired looking and the house keeping is under staffed. This is minor, but you only got two plastic cups in the room and one small bar of soap which was not refreshed unless you... More

Loved this hotel the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The Bay Club was not a big hotel but that made it cozy.. The restaurant was delicious and the prices were reasonable. There were also many fine restaurants and bars near by within walking distance. I would definitely go back.

Dear Nora, The Bay Club truly is a cozy special place unlike any hotel I've experienced! I am glad to hear you enjoyed your room, restaurant and the choice of the ten other restaurants on the island. I'll be happy to pass on your comments to the staff members. Hope to see you again very soon! More

We returned to the Bay Club Hotel & Marina in July and have stayed there many times over the years. I love how they have remodeled since we were there last. I do miss the breakfast that was once included. Unfortunately I was very disappointed and shocked to see that there was a mistake on our bill when a $240... More

Dear Ruth, Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that you like the remodel to a more nautical theme. The buffet breakfast was a nice amenity but very wasteful and difficult to keep fresh. I am very sorry about the errant charge posted to your room. I have the auditors checking the tickets to insure that this... More

We stayed 5 nights. Our 2nd floor marina room was very large and clean - a great space with two beds for two adults and two tweens - the pool, though small was nice and clean - I just encourage passage near the hot tub entrance instead of the through the restaurant. We definitely heard the concerts going on next... More

Dear Roger, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that the clerk was not able to rectify this at checkout or refer this higher up.

When we first got there we had a small issue with our room but after going to the front desk it was dealt with immediately and we really loved the rest of our stay. Food was delicious in the restaurant and we enjoyed hanging at the little bar. Great location and loved the underground parking option, will definitely be back!!

We have been visiting this hotel for 20 years. It has always been reasonable in price, clean, and very convenient to the airport or downtown. We always stay here because the view is fantastic, free breakfast, and it is a small local hotel. For the past year and a half we have been exploring other hotels in San Diego because... More
