We recently spent 4 nights at the Bay Club and feel it is the only place we will stay when we return to San Diego. I booked a bay view room,( which was good size), and we were happy to see that our room had a city view, which we weren't expecting. It was beautiful at night. It was very...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel has a superb staff, good breakfast, great view, delicious dinner menu, and a beautiful view of San Diego bay. . . .the water, plus naval vessels, and cruise ships. As an alternative, they offer a marina view, which is probably very quiet. The room rate was fair (check their...

A great location on Shelter Island, we stayed for one night in a nice, big room overlooking the marina. All the staff we met were extremely friendly.and, with parking $5 per night, it is difficult to see how you could better the Bay Club.

We flew into San Diego for a 1 night stay before driving to Las Vegas for a business related conference. The location was easy to find, and looked to be in a good neighborhood. We were able to check-in on time and our room was nothing fancy, but looked to be as described on their website. Could use some fresh...

We stayed in for a few days visiting family and came in from Jersey.. I selected this hotel only from reviews on TripAdvisor and the fact that it was on the water! That said, we were very pleased. We had the Marina view room and it was great, we felt right at home on the water. Very close to the...

Stayed for 3 nights. Didn't start well when room wasn't ready until 5.45pm. Front desk Staff were friendly and welcoming though. The hotel is in a nice spot on shelter island but is still a bit remote unless you have a car. About 10 mins drive from seaworld and midway. The room was huge but very outdated. Bathroom in particular...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights over a weekend, totaling about $150 per night (before taxes); plus the Drive to Hawaii package ($15) and a bottle of champagne ($18) to celebrate a special occasion.
