Have stayed here on many occasions for business and never disappointed. Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and quiet. They offer free buffet breakfast that satisfies light, healthy eaters to hearty eaters so everyone in my large group was well fed and ready to begin working early each day. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, great selections and beautiful view of the marina. Great location on the marina where I could see sting rays down below and the occasional seal. Nice, safe area to walk at the end of a long day to unwind.

Honestly I would defiantly stay there again. Everything was great from the bed, to the room, breakfast and staff. Loved that it was a bit away from the downtown area and gave it a very nice feel and a mini getaway from everything.

The hotel was a nice little distance from downtown and all the noise. The view was awesome. We were right across the marina, we got to view an aircraft carrier heading out to sea from the comforts of our patio. Had some AC issues in the room, but they were fixed pretty easily by the maintenance department. Overall we were very satisfied!!!

We enjoyed our stay on Shelter Island at the Bay Club Hotel & Marina. We had the good fortune of staying in a newly remodeled room that had been done nicely. The bedding and linens were of good quality and very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice, and the size of the room was quite large. Our balcony faced the marina which was great! The breakfast was sufficient,and the wait staff were very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel and the area of Shelter Island to anyone vacationing in the San Diego area.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the marina are excellent!

This hotel is located on Shelter Island which is across the bay from downtown San Diego. The bay view rooms offer sweeping views of downtown San Diego, interrupted by the occasional palm tree, but beautiful views nonetheless. Staying on Shelter Island lends a feel of isolation, though there are two other hotels in the area, and is very quiet. The hotel itself is older and well-kept, with valet service or self-parking, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The included breakfast is above par from the standard continental breakfast that most chain hotels offer. We stayed 2 night and both mornings the breakfast was very good. In addition to the usual fruit, juice, milk, bagels, etc, they also have hot breakfast choices. One morning there was scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits, and the next morning pancakes and sausage. The dining room faces the marina. We had a bay view room and enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the activity on the bay with a perfect view of downtown San Diego and North Island Naval Air Station. The room was clean and spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Across the road from the hotel is Shoreline Park, where we enjoyed after-dinner strolls to the pier. I'd definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here for many years whenever we want to get away and totally relax. Location is absolutely wonderful, people very, very friendly and helpful, rooms impeccable. Just love it there. Rates can vary quite a bit depending on season.

The Bay Club is a great place to stay in San Diego. Great location next to walking path by the bay, good rooms, great free breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff. Also within walking distance to great restaurant's and close to all the sites of San Diego. When I go to San Diego I try to stay at the Bay Club.

Room Tip: The harbor view rooms are great.
