Very clean. The rooms very good. Need of a car or cab to go down town . Service from and to the airport and the guys are so kind and helped us to organize our trip. Swimming pool outside and possibility to rent a CAR at a cheap price.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed two nights at the Bay Club. The good: we had a suite that had AMAZING wraparound marina views with two balconies. The hotel was conveniently located and offered a free buffet breakfast and wifi. The bed was okay. The bad: parking is $5 a day; service at the restaurant downstairs, while friendly, was almost...

The Bay Club is located at the best spot on Shelter Island, with wonderful views of San Diego Bay and the marina. The Bar & Grille is a convienient place to meet friend and the restaurant serves a good meal.

The hotel is not a fancy place, but was nice and reasonably priced. I really had no problems with the place except one. I booked two rooms online - one with a king bed and the other with two queen beds. When I checked in, I found that I had two rooms with two queen beds. When I protested, they... More

Our first choice when visiting San Diego has always been the Bay Club and Marina. We return due to the personal, friendly atmosphere. The relaxing accomodations from being picked up by the van at the train station to the complimentary breakfast and beautiful view rooms, our stay has always been a wonderful experiance.

The Bay Club is my go-to hotel while visiting San Diego. It's convenient, priced fairly, very comfortable, right on the bay, clean, and has a complimentary full breakfast. Is it the fanciest, no, best food, no, luxurious, no, but it is a great value for the money, and it is very well managed, and for music fans, right next door... More

My wife and I booked the "Room with a view and dinner for two" promotion, and we had an excellent time. Our room was clean and spacious, the employees were all very courteous and responsive, and the food was terrific. Dinner was off the full menu, so we had our choice of any entree they offer -- a great deal!

The double queen room was what you should expect, maybe a little small but otherwise fine. We were promised a room with a sea-view, but got room 105 with a view of the outdoor parking lot instead. Dinner at the hotel restarurant was great: service, food and price. The view of the harbor is great. The breakfast buffet is limited... More
