We stayed in a suite with kitchen as we were there with my 2 year old daughter and there for nearly 2 weeks and it was perfect. The extra sitting room meant she could sleep while we were in the other room. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed and a good coffee maker (although the hotel coffee's not great so bought our own!). Perfect location for getting around San Diego and surrounding areas and lovely view of the marina. Things got a little hectic around 4 July which was the day we were travelling back to Scotland and the hotel was nicer before then to be honest. It gets a little too busy for the pool area etc. and special arrangements for going in and out and parking made it all a little strange for our last day and we couldn't get late check out because the hotel was so busy. It was great for the rest of our trip though and all the staff were lovely and great service.

Room Tip: A water view of either the marina or waterfront are equally good but if you're looking at the bay you are looking over the car park first so a higher room is better.

This sprawling multi-building hotel is located far out toward the end of Shelter Island, across the harbor entrance from the North Island Naval Air Station. Some buildings have elevators, others do not. Most parking spaces are near the buildings, but there is a parking garage at the end of the property. Try to get a room on the marina side, overlooking Point Loma. The views on that side of the hotel are spectacular, whereas the other side is parking lot view. As others have said, the rooms are large for the price, and the beds are comfortable. You can stroll along a well landscaped walkway from your building to the main building with the check-in desk and the restaurant. Some of the food in the restaurant is quite good; you just have to know what to order. The salmon is excellent, as is the quesadilla. The American breakfast is quite reasonably priced for the amount of food served.

This is an excellent hotel, but to say it is close to Pacific Beach is like saying Brooklyn is near the Statue of Liberty.

Room Tip: Marina side is better. Second floor marina side rooms generally have the best views.

We always stay at the BW Island Palms Hotel when in the San Diego area. After visiting many different areas, we have found that the tranquility and style and location of the BW Island Palms Hotel is the best. It is quiet, picturesque, convenient (just a short drive to downtown, Coronado, ferries, Pacific Beach). You can walk the bay waterfront or along the marina, two pools are available for the family, the staff are the best, this place just has it all!

Great place to stay, extra large rooms in the newer section of the hotel. My boys loved the pool, and the staff at the hotel are friendly. I can't wait to go back again next year, where we can just walk out of out room and see the fireworks.

Stay in a Marina View room, enjoy a sunset and the early morning calm! Shelter Island is scenic and comfortable. Enjoy fishing acroos the street from the hotel ans concerts down the road when scheduled. Located near three yacht clubs, numerous restaurants, this is a boaters paradise.
