Service very good, staff are super friendly and well disposed. Would come back and recommend it with no hesitation. They also have an excellent complimentary shuttle service that is awesome and they can take you to nearby places.

This is a great place to stay in San Diego. The staff are friendly and helpful, to rooms are clean, well kept, and comfortable. The rooms and facilities could use a little cosmetic updating, but not enough to keep me from recommending a stay here. The complimentary airport shuttle arrived quickly to pick me up. There is also a beach...

This is a wonderful hotel with great views and a pleasant staff. We will return next year for our summer vacation. The front desk staff was extremely nice and very helpful. House keeping was great. Thank you, Bob & Diane O.

The views of the Marina can't be beat. This hotel is minutes from downtown, the airport, and freeways but was very quiet and felt miles away from everything. Desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean but could use updating. We ate in the bar area one night the food was OK but the service was not great....

The staff were very family friendly and courteous. The evening cookies and milk were a delicious bonus! Also, like many other reviewers, we really enjoyed the heated pool and large outdoor hot tub. The only thing that seemed odd was that the cleaning supply rooms on the second floor were left open.

Very Friendly, willing to please, I would recommend it to friends and family. Within 20 minutes to half an hour of most of the major attraction in San Diego. Our family went to Sea World and had a great time.

The pool and jacuzzi were very appreciated by our (small) children. Also, the fact that we had small kids never felt like a problem. In some hotels, you feel like the staff and other guests don't like them making noise etc. but we felt very comfortable at Bay Club. I loved the marina view and would recommend that side of...

For the price, you can't beat it. Especially for the area. There is not a lot of congestion on shelter island and the island is a great place to walk/run. We stayed on the harbor side, but next time we may opt for the marina side. The room service was really good, and extremely reasonable. The pool/hot tub area did...

We've been staying at the Bay Club for nearly 8 years. It is, quite frankly, our favorite get-away hotel in the USA. Wonderful staff, location, food, drinks, etc. Other, bigger hotels could take a lesson from the Bay Club as to how to operate a hotel.
