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... More

We were pleased with the airport pick-up and drop off at cruise terminal. All staff were very pleasant and went out of their way to please. We enjoyed the breakfast and the afternoon appetizers in the lounge. The hotel was recommended by a friend and I would recommend to others. I felt the price was in line with the major... More

Although the rooms are large, the decoration is very old fashioned & the tiling & seal around the bath was in a bad state. I tried sitting on the balcony, but it was like being in a wind tunnel. We stayed in a marina view room which was above the kitchen & the commercial extractor fan made a heavy 'hum'... More

We stayed at Bay Club hotel for two nights , over Easter weekend, with our two young children. Our room was a double on the marina side, which does afford nice views of the marina. The shelter island location is nice, and still convenient to downtown or other San Diego locations. The staff varied between pleasant and surly. Parking is... More

We never stayed here, but reading the reviews I thought it was a safe bet. We were extremely happy with our choice. I called and asked if it was better to stay on the marina side or bay side. You really can't go wrong with either, we opted for the marina side and it was gorgeous!! The room was large... More

The hotel is located in a marina only a few miles from the airport. The hotel rooms are large with great views of the marina. The great news for San Diego is the parking is abundant and free.
