Last week was the second time I had the pleasure of staying at the Bay Club Hotel & Marina. It is very reasonably priced and includes breakfast. We had dinner at the restauant and had awesome service with great food. The staff at the hotel were always very friendly. The hotel is located right along San Diego Bay with a...

I've been staying at the Bay Club for years and have always enjoyed it. I especially enjoy the view of the marina and Pt Loma, the location close the restaurants and shops at Pt Loma, and the interesting and pretty areas for walking. The location makes it easy to get into town or the local Navy bases in that area....

Thank you for a memorable stay in San Diego! It was my first time (my husband had been there before) to enjoy the unique characteristics of San Diego. We were tired after driving six hours from Phoenix the first night, so we ate in the Bay Club restaurant for dinner. Oh, my! We both got the seafood combo dish--incredibly fresh,...

Great location but the interior and exterior are dated compared to other hotels on the island. Staff was friendly but lacked professional atmosphere. Food was less than average. Full breakfasts but not very good.

I have stayed here for years and was a little disappointed with the "new" breakfast they offer. We absolutely could not eat the hot meal one day it was so bad. I can see that they are trying to cut down on costs by changing things and if you have never stayed there I suppose you wouldn't know any different....

Thank you for your review. While we certainly appreciate that you have stayed with us for years and that you find us a good value for the money, we are sorry that you did not like our new breakfast format. In response to comments from our guests, we did recently switch from a buffet style to a full all-you-can-eat hot...

We only spent one short night here, we had arrived late on our flight and left early to pick up a rental the next morning. The shuttle arrived quickly to pick us up at the airport. Although it was late when we arrived, the front desk suggested a great pizza delivery. The workout room is small. The complementary breakfast was...

Great room with lovely view of marina with boats awash in Christmas lights at night. Helpful and friendly staff with terrific suggestions for places to visit. Shelter island is a lovely area with long walking paths along the bay. All this just 10-15minutes to Coronado, Downtown, Old Town or La Jolla. Couldn't ask for a better place and location. Why...
