We enjoyed our stay at the Bay Club Hotel. Comfortable room and a very tasty breakfast is included with your room. Beautiful views of the bay but heads up that you can sometimes hear very loud jets taking off from the naval station across the bay.

First time visit to the hotel and city. Surprise and not happy with extra charge for Car Park $5 per day, not mention in any documents. Breakfast is great, but coffee taste terrible. Hotel location is good, found a Thai food restaurant nearby.

We have stayed at The Bay Club every year for many years. We have stayed with just the two of us, with our grandson, and with different family and friends. Everyone is always happy to stay at The Bay Club because the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. While the rooms are not fancy, they are comfortable, and views...

This was our second stay at the Bay View. We attended concerts next door which made this ideal for convenience. The dinners were exceptionally good as was the food and selection at breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

I came earlier to reserve three rooms for my family and me and everybody was very friendly and the rooms big and very nice. They promised us at least one room with view on the San Diego skyline, but when my family checked in, we didn't get one. The service was not very organized. Sometimes, the cleaning staff came when...

The location was nice, and the inside remodeling was great. The carpet was new, the view was nice and the room was lovely. We had a second floor "balcony" room overlooking the marina. The view was fabulous, but the balcony was about 18" deep with no room for sitting out there. The rooms beside us all had deeper balconies. We...
