We lived here for 4 years and never knew about this little gem. We stayed here for my birthday and had a fantastic time. It was so quiet and everything was perfect. I imagine it isn't that quiet in the high season, but we fully enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. Although with a view like...

My first trip to the west coast & loved it! I don't know about the other rooms but our room was great! We had a bay view room with 3 outside viewing areas. Could easily watch the Navy ships & all water traffic. Loved the park across the street. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Really enjoyed our stay!

This hotel has been on Shelter Island for many years, and shows its wear and tear. The rooms smell musty and show sign of the overall lack of maintenance. The staff from the front desk to the maid service was very polite and professional. I personally did not use the hotels restaurant, as there are numerous restaurants in the area...

We stayed on the second floor in a suite. Lovely view of the bay. Our room was well acquainted. My only complaints were the bathroom didn't have a fan and the hallway carpet was dirty and worn. The staff I dealt with were all very friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant was average. They have a shuttle that can...

If you are looking for a break from your normal fast paced vacation this is the place for you. Relaxing, elegant, quiet, and friendly to mention just a few metaphors about my favorite place to stay. The San Diego Bay is literally across the street. There is a walking path for a leisurely stroll, or covered alcoves with benches to...

The staff is excellent at this hotel...from the check-in, the shuttle drivers, & cleaning staff. Great location is close to the airport. The rooms are large & clean. We had a patio for sitting & watching the harbor activity. We arrived late when most of the area restaurants were close. Christopher, the bellmen/shuttle driver called the restaurant to be certain...

I have been staying at the Bay Club for years while visiting California for pleasure and/or to see our family in San Diego. It is great becoming a member of the Commodore Club and receiving notices of specials deals. Rooms are spacious the beds are dreamy/comfortable and most views are memorable!

Hotel lobby was very updated. Bar and restaurant had wonderful views of the marina. Service in the restaurant was a bit slow. Prices were reasonable and food was tasty. The pool area was always very clean. The rooms were spacious, could be a bit more updated. Hard to find outlets to plug in phone chargers etc. Hotel suggested to reuse...

We spent three nights in a second floor room with a marina view. Although some of the furniture in the room was a bit worn, the room was very spacious and comfortable.
