After a few bumps with our room we spoke with the hotel manager Mike and he was AMAZING! He took care of our concerns and we couldn't have asked for more. The hotel was very nice and was in a great location. The breakfast was more than you could ask for. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

The hotel looks nice on the website but don't let the looks fool you. We stayed here the week of July 22-25,2013. First of all, the hotel is old, outdated, and feels like it needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Don't even get me started on the mannequin sitting at the piano in the lobby. The free breakfast is horrible so...

I live in San Diego and had to find a hotel due to some flood damage. I ended up staying at this hotel because all other hotels in the surrounding area were booked due to Comic-con. My room was 206, which had two balconies that overlooked the Shelter Island Marina. It was a large room, comfortable bed, good TV and...

We booked online for 2 nights directly from the hotel, which we had stayed at previously and enjoyed. It's a great location. I specifically requested a "quiet room, not near the elevator or ice machine" on the second floor. We were given keys to a room on the second floor that was directly adjacent to the elevator (which did not...

My Wife and I needed a place to relax and recharge, and our week+ stay at the Bay Club was just perfect for us. We requested and were given one of our favorite, comfortable rooms with a view of the SD bay and the NAS Coronado. We love to walk the bay walk just across the street along the south...

Had tix for YES concert at Humphrey's. Stayed previously at Humphreys and was quite unimpressed with room quality for the top dollar price. Saw Bay Club and decided to give it a try. Pleasantly surprised with room quality and location overlooking marina. Great location across from boat launch area and we enjoyed dinner at local restaurant The Red Sails Inn....

We really enjoyed our stay at Bay Club...we initially were put on the first floor, but wanted a bay view, so we were able to upgrade to an upstairs corner room that was absolutely beautiful! Loved it, we'll be back!

Excellent location, right in front of the Shelter Island marina, in a very quiet location despite its proximity to the airport. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, rooms are large, bright and clean and the pool has a full view on the marina bay. Mostly catering to seniors and families with children, but also perfectly suitable for business travel. The...

I picked the Bay Club Hotel & Marina because I've stayed there in the past and really enjoyed it then. I guess it's true that nothing stays the same! In this case it got worse. One major reason I booked my room there was because of their once great breakfast buffet. WHAT A LETDOWN! Another letdown was the wi-fi service,...
