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!

Once again, the Bay Club Hotel and Marina have come through for me and my family in an amazing way. March 2016 had our wedding party block of about 20 rooms of nothing but ecstatic guests who raved about their stay. As my wife and I live in close proximity to the hotel, we continue to utilize this fabulous hotel...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while on our SoCal vacation. Very clean, comfortable, and beautiful views. We had one small hot water issue our first night, but the front desk and maintenance was quick to respond. Nice location and great view of the skyline.

Great place to stay in San Diego that is close to the airport, downtown, and Seaworld. Great price, and low priced parking under the hotel, or in front. Also free public parking across the street. The Quarter Deck Restaurant has great food at reasonable prices. The property offers great views of the ships coming in (Cruise, Military, and commercial) Nice...
