From the first "hello" at check-in to the last "good-bye" when leaving, the staff of the Bay Club Hotel & Marina make you feel welcome; as if you are their only guest. The hotel is conveniently located to all major attractions. The food is excellent. Definitely would stay there again and recommend it to all my friends.

The hotel was conveniently located and offered a free buffet breakfast and wifi. The bed was okay. The bad: parking is $5 a day; service at the restaurant downstairs, while friendly, was almost...

The hotel is not a fancy place, but was nice and reasonably priced. I really had no problems with the place except one. I booked two rooms online - one with a king bed and the other with two queen beds. When I checked in, I found that I had two rooms with two queen beds. When I protested, they... More

Our first choice when visiting San Diego has always been the Bay Club and Marina. We return due to the personal, friendly atmosphere. The relaxing accomodations from being picked up by the van at the train station to the complimentary breakfast and beautiful view rooms, our stay has always been a wonderful experiance.

The Bay Club is my go-to hotel while visiting San Diego. It's convenient, priced fairly, very comfortable, right on the bay, clean, and has a complimentary full breakfast. Is it the fanciest, no, best food, no, luxurious, no, but it is a great value for the money, and it is very well managed, and for music fans, right next door... More
