My wife and I have now stayed 2 times and have had great experience both times....Great location for getting around SD, good access for walks along the bay, great food from the kitchen, nice cozy bar and dining (happy hour is great, and the salsa & quacamole is the best!!), and.....Great staff, all around, from check-in, to the bar, to dining, and to housekeeping....Finally, the price is really reasonable, expecially with the "Early Booking" options.....We'll be back next year, hoping to make this an annual trip to SD, and the Bay Club.

Room Tip: Rooms on the "Marina" side might be a little more quite, and more picturesque (We've s...

Always enjoy our stays here! Rooms are spacious, clean & well equipped with hair dryer, fridge and coffee maker. Excellent location to the airport, DT San Diego & beaches. Will return again, hope they will bring back their cruise & snooze package with free parking for up to 10 days...

Service is definitely 5 star. The whole staff couldn't have been more accommodating , and smiling faces everywhere. We only stayed one night, but from the time they picked us up at the airport to dropping us off at the cruise, we lacked for nothing. Complimentary van service to the local farmers market, then to a local restaurant. Even offered to pick us up when we finished! A hot breakfast buffet in the morning with servers continually bringing hot coffee.

The property is being refurbished, but not in anyway disruptive to guests. Not an "upscale" property, but clean and cozy. Lovely setting right on the bay. Price was great, too.

Room Tip: Bayside is lovely, but backside faces marina which is also neat

My Wife and I stayed for three nights over the weeekend Friday 11/29/13. Greeted by helpful pleasant staff on the recption. Nice room although we did book a double and was given a twin.
the bar staff were very helpful and attentative, always found time to talk. we had two meals in the recption on seperate nights and both were enjoyable and the staff again were very good, As another reviewer reported the breakfast staff were not very efficient or attentative, brought warm water to make tea with the first morning and the second morning brought us two cups of coffee before asking neither of us wanted coffee. The breakfast was excellent the first morning with bacon sausage and a range of different eggs, after this it went down hill in both selection and quality and the bran flakes were like tasteless card board. Good speedy checkout again from pleasany staff, breakfast staff hanging about reception hoping for a tip I assumme, they did not get one and they did not deserve one. We would stay again just for the location but tere are other hotels nearby which we would look at first.

Room Tip: Rooms over the marina seem better bay view rooms have the carpark in front of them

The hotel location is really good and the view is amazing.
The staff are all very friendly and welcoming.
I loved the decoration of the hotel its very luminous bright and cosy.
Our room was amazing cause we had a balcony with a view on water and boats. This hotel is really peaceful and relaxing.
The restaurant is amazing try their salmon with rice it's so yummy.
The only bad points are I would have love a carpet in the room instead of a wooden flooring cause it makes the room cold and the breakfast didn't have much of varieties.
Otherwise the rest was really good.
If I go back I'll definitely go to this hotel again :)

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay! Went there for a birthday weekend during December. Stayed on the marina side, which looks a lot like you are on the water itself. Our room was over the water overlooking all the beautiful boats that were decorated for the holidays. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The local is perfect. I even got a gift of a bottle of champagne! We will be back....

Room Tip: Definitely stay on the marina side..although the bayside is lovely too....

We stay here every time we spend time in San Diego. Beautiful and convenient location, great hot breakfast, large hot tub, and comfortable beds for a modest "downtown" price. If you are looking for a place with a great water view, near downtown but away from the maddening crowd, then this is it. I think it is a well kept secret so don't tell too many people.
