My husband and I stayed there two nights to celebrate his 40th birthday. We came out from Colorado. The hotel was lovely. The hotel staff was so friendly and accommodating. The pool and hot tub were very clean an we enjoyed using them both. The room was a little dated, as was the entire hotel, but clean and comfortable. Also,...

This is a our 5th or 6th stay at the Bay Club over the last 25 years. We've enjoyed it each time. The location and hot breakfast included is our biggest draw. It's off the beaten path on a nice, out of the way location, but close enough to all the San Diego Tourist Locations. Literally, less than 20-30 minutes...

The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly, in fact everyone at the Hotel was very friendly. Happy hour in the bar was excellent and the bartender, John, was funny and very efficient. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. The dinner rolls were some of the...

As a first time visitor to San Diego I was indecisive and nervous when choosing a place to stay. However as soon as I got here I was very happy with my choice. I loved the location (close to freeways, downtown, ocean beach and the beautiful sunset cliffs!) While out at the pool I felt like I was on a...

The location of the Bay Club is superb. Right next door to the famous Humphrey's on Shelter Island. A great venue for some fabulous concerts. The weekend we were there Santana played. Looking out one side of the building are views over the hundreds of sailboats and powerboats docked at the inside marinas associated with San Diego Yacht club, Really...

My husband and I could not have chosen a better hotel for our vacation than the Bay Club Hotel. Shelter Island is a very relaxing spot, with walking trails and the harbor right across the street from the hotel. The staff at the hotel was incredibly friendly and helpful and the shuttle service can't be beat. The restaurant in the...

Our stay at the Bay Club was fantastic! The hotel is a little dated, however, the rooms were a great size, and the beds were comfortable. All of the rooms have a great view whether it is the marina or the bay. The location is excellent!! (We made smores across the way on the beach. There are bonfire pits!! )...
