Stayed 5 nights at the Bay Club and enjoyed my stay.
The location is reasonably good - right on the water which is nice to look out at and for walks but it is not that close to any beaches and is quite a distance from any nicer restaurants. Having said that the freeways are close but it is several minutes drive at least to either a beach or nicer restaurant.
The staff were friendly and helpful throughout my stay.
The rooms are large, typical of american hotels such as these with lots of empty space. The decor is fine, a little dated but in good condition and very clean. The "patio" seating area outside the room is very small and close to the next room. It rather looked out on to the parking lot, although the first floor rooms looked like they had more room, privacy and a better view.
The pool area is pleasant, although surprisingly items from the bar do not seem to be able to be brought to the pool.
I did not eat at the hotel and so can't comment on the food.
Overall I think the Bay Club Hotel is pleasant although not particularly spectacular.
