My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel has a superb staff, good breakfast, great view, delicious dinner menu, and a beautiful view of San Diego bay. . . .the water, plus naval vessels, and cruise ships. As an alternative, they offer a marina view, which is probably very quiet. The room rate was fair (check their...

A great location on Shelter Island, we stayed for one night in a nice, big room overlooking the marina. All the staff we met were extremely friendly.and, with parking $5 per night, it is difficult to see how you could better the Bay Club.

We flew into San Diego for a 1 night stay before driving to Las Vegas for a business related conference. The location was easy to find, and looked to be in a good neighborhood. We were able to check-in on time and our room was nothing fancy, but looked to be as described on their website. Could use some fresh...

We stayed in for a few days visiting family and came in from Jersey.. I selected this hotel only from reviews on TripAdvisor and the fact that it was on the water! That said, we were very pleased. We had the Marina view room and it was great, we felt right at home on the water. Very close to the...

Stayed for 3 nights. Didn't start well when room wasn't ready until 5.45pm. Front desk Staff were friendly and welcoming though. The hotel is in a nice spot on shelter island but is still a bit remote unless you have a car. About 10 mins drive from seaworld and midway. The room was huge but very outdated. Bathroom in particular...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights over a weekend, totaling about $150 per night (before taxes); plus the Drive to Hawaii package ($15) and a bottle of champagne ($18) to celebrate a special occasion. My room overlooked the marina on the second floor. It was clean, cozy and warmly decorated in wood and bamboo furnishings. The bed was...

I was very impressed with the hotel's location on Shelter Island and the views from our balcony of the bay and the marina. The free hot breakfast was also great. Parking was only $5 a night and was plentiful. The room was clean but lackluster and the bathroom looked like a creepy 1980's dungeon. The property overall lacked that upscale...

Overall, our stay here was nice. It's right across from the bay, which is a pretty sight. The lobby was spacious and you can see the marina from the restaurant/breakfast area. Check-in was easy and the staff was very courteous and helpful. They gave us great information about the hotel and surrounding area. Our room was fairly large, however, it...
