Found this place 1 day prior to reserving it for just 1 night to get away. The price I paid was $45 cheaper than any of the discount websites like Hotel.com. Book direct or at least check out the difference. Paid $157 for a waterfront view on the marina, 2nd floor room. Plenty of space, super comfy linens and beds,...

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.

We recently stayed for the sixth time in the last seven years. The location is great. Bay Club sits on a peninsula away from the traffic and right on the water and that's what keeps us coming back. There have been minor changes since out first stay seven years ago such as a $10 parking fee per nt, which the...

I arrived after a late long flight so I was happy to get to the hotel. The room booked was a king and I was given two queens. There was no soap or coffee (there was a pot) in the room - I had to seek it out at the front desk. Not what I wanted to do after a...

We make 3 or 4 trips per year to San Diego from our home in Tucson, AZ . Early on we stayed at several of the hotels on Shelter island and enjoyed them all. After our first stay at the Bay Club we have stayed no where else. (That first stay was about 25 years ago). In my opinion there...

Loved the shelter island location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bar and restaurant had reasonable prices and food was well prepared and presented. One small caution, while rooms service was priced well, a pot of coffee was pricy at 25.00.

Stayed here a few years and was not impressed, but our stay in 2016 was very nice. The staff is great, helpful and professional and our dinner was delicious! Again, the wait staff was exceptional and the room was lovely. The price is the bonus here, quite reasonable for the area. Our family lives in San Diego County and we...

We chose the Bay Club Hotel because of it's quiet location on the Shelter Island Marina. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and the rooms were nice. Furniture in the room was a bit dated but overall a nice place to stay.

We had a great stay while in San Diego for our grandsons Marine graduation. Although the hotel is dated, it is well run and maintained with a very helpful and pleasant staff. We especially loved our view from our balcony!
