Bay Club Hotel & Marina

2131 Shelter Island Dr, San Diego 92106 - Map
 
 
"Older Hotel, Great View"
This hotel has an amazing view of the bay and small privately owned boats. There is a very small beach where you can make a fire but not to swim, too close to the private boats. I would definitely not want to swim here. Shelter Island is cute and only a 15 minute drive from downtown and 20-25 minute drive to most popular beaches like Oceanside and La Jolla. It's an older hotel so the bathroom is not very modern and does has some rust on the shower curtain rack and the shower head needed a little more cleaning. We only had service once and they wiped the counter and fixed the bed but no vacuuming because I notice that the broken eye shadow applicator I dropped the day before was still the in same exact spot. Staff was not informative of the hotel's amenities nor did they ask if we wanted any suggestions for place to see or eat. They were pleasant when asked questions but not very hospitable. The pool is very small though. They do have the cheapest parking on Shelter Island, $10/day.

"Trendy hotel centrally located in San Diego"
Nice hotel for all ages, centrally located in San Diego. 15 minute uber ride to the beach and downtown and right next to Balboa park. Trendy pool atmosphere were there is a vibrant pool party every weekend for all ages (more toward adult though). Hotel staff is really friendly. I would like the hotel to put more money into making its rooms feel more like the lobby and uniquely identify each room and really give it that trendy vibe. We had a problem with our air conditioning unit and noise at 2am

"Close to Sea World"
Overall decent facility. Room was clean and neat. It was disappointing to pay what we paid and not have at least a continental breakfast included. Suggest at least a discount to the restaurant on the property! Wi-fi was rather slow, but at least it was offered. Another plus is the pool was open til 11pm.
