mold, mold and mildew

1960 decor with mold and mildew from the last decade. Nice view but that's the only plus. Bed was worn out and pillows were like slabs. I wouldn't risk my health by staying at the Bay Club

Huge roach in the room

Upon our arrival we were welcomed by the biggest roach I've ever seen. The good news is that it was dead but that didn't give me the comfort I was looking forward to after 10 hours of traveling. The only upside was the free breakfast was decent and the staff was very willing to move us and was very apologetic. However, I will not be returning...the room also needs some updating and TLC. Do not recommend.

Simply OK

The hotel has a wonderful location and the friendliest of staff but the rooms are average at best. The hotel is in need of a complete remodel and upgrade. The close proximity to the salt water (wonderful beach right across the street and docks in the rear) has taken its toll on the building, especially the woodwork and bathrooms. The outdated furnishings do nothing to enhance the property. Overall, decent place to stay if you don't plan on being in the hotel much.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

A local resident recommended the Fish Market Restaurant and it was wonderful. I had garlic prawn and pasta and my co-worker had a sample plate and everything was absolutely wonderful including the view from our table. Downstairs is cheaper and more family oriented than upstairs but if you want a romantic dinner, go up.

Potential gem

Great location for walking and easy car access to most attractions in San Diego. Close to water, great views. Best complimentary breakfast we've ever had. The rooms have been redone but still feel a little dated. Some are larger than average though. Need better chairs. Great bed. About to redo the common areas which will be nice. Might check immediate hotel neighbours but would definitely go back.

Good value for your money

The bedding was old. Bedspread seemed like it had been washed a million times and was not plush. It was Scratchy and Philly. I like fluffy plush bedding when I stay at a hotel .

Bay Club Hotel Review - SD Resident

As a San Diego resident I enjoy staying overnight at our local area resorts and hotels. The Bay Club Marina is located on Shelter Island with marina, or city and bay views from all of the rooms. The property is older but well maintained. I would definitely recommend paying the $20.00 to upgrade to a premium room as it is well worth the money. Included in the room rate is a very good breakfast buffet which makes the Bay Club and Marina an affordable option when seeking waterfront accommodations in San Diego.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a paved walking/jogging trail right in front of the hotel which is ideal for people who want to get out and enjoy the scenic beauty of Sand Diego Bay. Lot’s of green areas to walk the dog, picnic, or play with the kids. Public boat launch ramp and fishing pier located within 100 yards of the hotel.

College Visit

We were visiting a local college. Huge flat screen t.v. in room was great. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Property was pretty. Good location. Room service (supper) was just o.k.. Sink filled up with water when washing. Bathtub had dripping faucet.
