This was my second trip to the Bay Club & Marina and the ambiance of being in the marina is serene and very soothing to the soul. The view is awesome! Although I didn't spend a night in the rooms, I did enjoy the marina side restaurant on both trips. The food is extremely good and the prices are very...

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.

This hotel had atmosphere that's for sure. I loved stepping out onto the balcony at the marina and watching the town appear in the mist. The room was spacious and clean. I just couldn't get enough of the view day or night. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Would have given it a five but I was surprised to get...

Forget the bay view room (you mostly see the street and naval base), go for the quiet marina side and watch the seagulls. The decor is a bit dated with painted wicker chairs and dark bathrooms but the service and location more than make up for it. Enjoy a lovely long walk along the path by the beach, speedy service...

We stop over for one night on our way to and from Hawaii. We have found the Bay Club Hotel and Marina to be a wonderful place for that one night stay. Nice people, nice rooms, wonderful restaurant. Very convenient to the airport. Shuttle service available. All in a small, very friendly atmosphere with a gorgeous view.

This is a very good place to stay to see the sights in and around San Diego. Located away from the busyness and noise of the city, Bay Club Hotel is still near the attractions. The trolley stops very close to the hotel, so there is easy access. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our morning server in...

In Jan 2017 - the week of MLK holiday, YPSW-AIHA (a professional organization) held their annual meeting which I coordinated with the hotel. This hotel is wonderful for business meetings or just a getaway. The meeting room, accommodations and food were all superb. The staff is very receptive to guests needs and respond promptly. The hotel catered our breaks and...

We attended the hotel for a meeting and dinner. The venue is very nice with the harbor on one side and the beach on the other. Rooms are large with nice balconies on them. Furnishings are basic but get the job done. Staff is very nice and the hotel is good size without feeling overwhelming.

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,...
