“Awesome service on the bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We wanted to stay close to Humphreys as we were going to a concert there. This place was close and affordable. When we arrived we were helped with parking and our luggage. When I checked in our room was automatically upgraded. Such a great surprise! The room was so cute and had a view of both sides of the bay. The following morning they even served a free breakfast. Real eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, huevos rancheros, fruit, cereal, etc. awesome!!!

This was our fifth stay at the Bay Club. I was somewhat leery, having read some recent negative reviews on this sight. All I can say to those of you that have stayed here before, you will continue to enjoy it as before. Friendly staff, great location, clean spacious rooms, and the great Marina view on the back side. If one prefers the bay view be sure to reserve a second floor room. There are 10-12 very good restaurants within easy walking distance, as well as, clubs own dinning room. Breakfast is very good, but with limited selection. We always relax at this small, friendly hotel.

Everything was good, except my expectation was not to have the balcony towards a construction area. The staff was nice and the location was perfect for a day at Sea World. The resturant was very good. The area was calm and the view towards San Diego city was great.

Room Tip: Not towards construction area, it was noisy and the view was a black wall.

I recently stayed at the Bay Club for two nights. I booked early on a travel website to save money. At the time, it was cheaper than booking directly with the Bay Club. The morning of my stay, I looked on their website and discovered for a few dollars more, I could upgrade my room. When I got to the hotel, they charged me ALOT more money to upgrade. I was penalized for not initially booking through them. Other than not getting the room for a good price, I enjoyed my stay.

This is a great hotel for the price. My friend and I had a girl's weekend and were looking for a reasonably-priced hotel that was a good, central location and the Bay Club fit the bill. Refrigerator in room and complimentary breakfast. Great value!

My wife and I stayed here for close to a week and loved every day of it! We had a 2nd floor room with a view of the marina and the Point Loma hills! Staff was wonderful, breakfast was good, they have a parking garage under the hotel. Couldn't ask for a better get away!
