Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Cute pool area, full daily breakfast was decent and varied each day. Lobby was being renovated while we were there, which wasn't ideal, but acceptable. Staff was very pleasant. We had a room with marina view, so many boats! Shelter island was a great location for us, easy to get around, but more relaxing than downtown. Would recommend this hotel and if we ever return to San Diego we would definately stay here again.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple

Hidden on shelter island is this fantastic gem! Such a great relaxing place to stay in a fantastic location. Close to all San Diego attractions but off the beaten path! Great place for families and free breakfast Buffett included in price! Definitely my only place to stay in San Diego

San Diego is a nice town with a lot of outdoor activities. I should be better known by people from Europe. This town can compete with other cities in the US. Hotel was very nice with all comfort. we enjoy our stay.

Every single staff member that I interacted with at the Bay Club was absolutely sensational. Their attention to detail and kindness was unmatched by any other hotel I've visited. The location is really close to the airport, but you don't feel like you're in an "airport neighborhood". The hotel is right across from the harbor, and backs up to a marina, so the views are wonderful. I stayed here as part of a large wedding group, and the bride was guaranteed that all of our rooms would be renovated rooms. My room had new carpet, bedding, and new paint....and OLD furniture, OLD drapes, and OLD fixtures. I was expecting a really nice room, so to be honest, I was really disappointed. The dining room was closed, so breakfast(included in the room rate) was served in a meeting room, and was not the fabulous breakfast I had read about....AT ALL. Overall, while I was truly impressed by the staff, I was truly unimpressed by the facility, so not sure I would recommend the Bay Club at this time. Perhaps when the renovations are complete, the hotel will match the level of its staff.

Room Tip: You will have airplane noise and harbor noise no matter where your room is, but if you want a quiete...

Stayed at this hotel for two nights, one on each end of a visit to Hawaii. Pick up at the airport was great, called and they were there in 10 minutes. Room was excellent, very clean, staff very friendly, resturant was also very good. I would highly recommend this hotel and if ever back in San Diego area I would certainly stay there again.

The location was great, staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean even during renovation. The parking spaces were small and cost $5 per night which was a surprise, but overall a very good hotel that I would go back to.
