My wife and I booked the "Room with a view and dinner for two" promotion, and we had an excellent time. Our room was clean and spacious, the employees were all very courteous and responsive, and the food was terrific. Dinner was off the full menu, so we had our choice of any entree they offer -- a great deal!

The double queen room was what you should expect, maybe a little small but otherwise fine. We were promised a room with a sea-view, but got room 105 with a view of the outdoor parking lot instead. Dinner at the hotel restarurant was great: service, food and price. The view of the harbor is great. The breakfast buffet is limited... More

Sometimes staying at a hotel can be a horrifing experience... however staying at the Bay Club is like being the guest of Honor. The staff treats each quest as if they're the only ones there. From check-in to check-out the service is unsurpassed, clean, great security, off street and underground parking, great breakfast included daily and so much more. When... More

The brekfast could be better !! It 's not very expensive to give to guest a choice of morning foods. Self service without "lines" more comfortable! But very good location!! And comfortable parking. Airport & center of old & modern town is not so far. Sutable!!

We make a special effort to stay in the Bay Club at least once a year. It is a special treat for us. The staff, the rooms, the exercise room, the food...it is all very good and appreciated. We prefer the Bay side so we can watch the big and little boats come in and out. I think the breakfast... More

Front desk polite and helpful, clean hotel, large room, quiet, nice view of the marina. Hotel parking was free and easy to use. Free wireless, computer and printer available for guests.
