I stayed here for my first visit to San Diego to attend a family wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and the view was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful when I was looking for recommendations for things to do while in town. I would definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a break from your normal fast paced vacation this is the place for you. Relaxing, elegant, quiet, and friendly to mention just a few metaphors about my favorite place to stay. The San Diego Bay is literally across the street. There is a walking path for a leisurely stroll, or covered alcoves with benches to...

The staff is excellent at this hotel...from the check-in, the shuttle drivers, & cleaning staff. Great location is close to the airport. The rooms are large & clean. We had a patio for sitting & watching the harbor activity. We arrived late when most of the area restaurants were close. Christopher, the bellmen/shuttle driver called the restaurant to be certain...

The Bay Club Hotel and Marina is in a beautiful location next to the open water and also the marina. The hotel is a great deal with clean and newly remodeled rooms. The hotel isnt new, so its not perfect. Its nice, not fancy. Our room was large with a desk, view of the marina, a balcony with two chairs,...

I have been staying at the Bay Club for years while visiting California for pleasure and/or to see our family in San Diego. It is great becoming a member of the Commodore Club and receiving notices of specials deals. Rooms are spacious the beds are dreamy/comfortable and most views are memorable!

Hotel lobby was very updated. Bar and restaurant had wonderful views of the marina. Service in the restaurant was a bit slow. Prices were reasonable and food was tasty. The pool area was always very clean. The rooms were spacious, could be a bit more updated. Hard to find outlets to plug in phone chargers etc. Hotel suggested to reuse...

We spent three nights in a second floor room with a marina view. Although some of the furniture in the room was a bit worn, the room was very spacious and comfortable. When I first entered the room, I was a little put off because I was expecting a marina view from the room and, as you can see from...

We stayed here for a group weekend event. The meeting room and hotel rooms were basic but nice. The hotel is situated adjacent to a portion of the marina and the views are interesting. The location was convenient to other activities such as a bay cruise, old town and the zoo.

For years, this has been my favorite intimate, water-view inn in San Diego. It recently underwent a nice refurbishing. Great beds, linens, and showers. Big TVs. Nice cafe and a friendly bar looking out over the water. Helpful, seasoned staff. Roomy pool. Reasonably priced covered parking. I prefer the serene marina view rooms (worth the modest splurge.) A super location...

Our hotel room and the communal areas were spotlessly clean. The coastal room decor really suited the marina view room we had. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially when we wanted to stay by the pool after we checked out, they let us gain access and to the showers by the fitness centre which we really appreciated, didn't...
