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

This is a wonderful hotel. Nice, clean quiet rooms. Great restaurant. Fantastic pool environment. Superior bar, but quiet and full of happy folk that don't bother non-drinkers like myself. Our five-star satisfaction rating is in my review, however I had to give this hotel four stars overall because it is not a "super" resort with tennis a golf course and... More

Stayed there during ComiCon in July. Overall it was a great place to stay, quite room, great and cheap room service, and very friendly staff. The room amenities might need a bit of upgrade, but their are still in good condition. Only negative was the distance from downtown activities, but if you are okay with using shuttle or other means... More

We have been staying at The Bay Club for several visits. It is a very nice place to stay. The rooms have recently been redone and they are beautiful and have a "seashore" ambiance. The rooms are clean. However, upon our last stay we were very disappointed to see the establishment of a daily fee for parking ($10)and the disappearance... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. The staff is very friendly. The front desk are very helpful and the valet man is very welcoming. The hotel is old and need update but it wasn't too bad. The price was nice. The view is nice but would suggest to get the marina view instead of the bay view.

We spent three nights here. We were told if we joined their commodore club we would receive 10% off the meals we ate in their restaurant during our current visit. When we checked out, the info we were given was not accurate. Was only for subsequent visits. The room was clean, bed comfortable and nice view of marina. We most... More

We have visited the Bay Club many times. It is in a wonderful location on Shelter Island if you like to be near the water, with harbor or marina views. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Restaurant is excellent for breakfast. For dinner, probably best to stick to less elaborate entrees. Casual atmosphere in keeping with the area. Room rates... More

We've been coming to the Bay Club for years. Great place for a "stay-cation". Location is excellent, right on the marina. The updated decor is very nice, and food is decent. Great place to dine before a concert at Humphrey's, which is right next door. Great happy hour. Bar is fun and.John, the bar manager is the BEST..
