Don't go to Humphrey's next door for fine dining. They play different music in the dining room than in the lounge, but you can hear both at the same time and it just is annoying.

Vacation and Convention

We had a great veiw of San Diego Harbor which was just across the street! There was a great walkway along the harbor with picnic tables and places to sit and a small sandy beach if that what you like. Always large Navy and Cruise ships silently floating in and out of the bay which is fun to see! The breakfast buffet was delicious and always a friendly wait staff to help with coffee and drinks. There is a 5 dollar a day parking fee if you park in their lot. But there is public parking on the side of the street and across the street in the park. 5 dollars to park in San Diego is CHEAP! and they do have security watching the lot. Great location it took 15 minutes to get to the convention center , Embarkadero,Midway, and same to Cabrillo National Park in the opposite direction if you like Lighthouses and a wonderful veiw of San Diego and the harbor. The Sunset Cliffs are a must see just north of the park. We would definatly return to the Bay Club again. I \

Great location but tired physical plant

The sunrise in front of the hotel is breathtaking. All public spaces are appropriately updated, but the room smells and feels old. The king room is very generously proportioned, but the was little furniture in the room to fill the space (a loveseat or sofa would have been nice). The buffet breakfast is great, and the staff is one of the most helpful that I have encountered.

Close to Airport and Marine Graduation

Our second stay at the Bay Club..........son's graduated from the MCRD one year apart. There are accommodations closer to the MCRD but the roads in the area are very straight forward, making the Bay Club easy to access. We were happy to pay a few dollars more for a Marina View room with very nice buffet breakfast vs. a motel fronting I-5 with a typical continental breakfast. Parking was plentiful (underground parking garage) but we weren't aware there was a $5.00 per day charge (which is acceptable..........just a bit "shocked"). The Room: Though I slept well-enough, I would not call the bed "plush". Pillows were fine, TV and Wireless internet had a strong signal, plenty of hot water, nice towels, balcony fronting the marina with excellent view (small stingrays swimming by). Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, country potatoes, bacon, sausage, french toast, breakfast quesadillas, patries (typical), indoor/outdoor seating. The Bay Club is worth considering if you're look for something that is a step above Holiday Inn Express (which isn't a bad deal itself).

Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff

We always stay at the Bay Club. The location is perfect. From our room we could see the San Diego skyline, the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier coming into port, jet fighter planes taking off from North Island and sailboats and pelicans dotting the harbor. Within a short distance to major attractions like the zoo, Coronado Beach, Sea World and Balboa Park. The staff is always so friendly, and they go out of their way to be helpful. The morning breakfast has a decent variety of food, and you can sit at a window table looking out upon the marina. Room decor is dated, however.
