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.

"A Charming Hotel that needs Upgrading"
This is the second time I stayed in this hotel in a week. As mentioned in my earlier review, the air conditioner is very noisy and the room is kind of dated. Most of all, the hot water shower was not very hot. Thus, I requested a "newer" room from the receptionist. if available, as I checked in this second time. The receptionist was extremely nice and efficient; and agreed to give me a new room. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the size of my room. It was huge!! Yet, there was no closet at all, and not even one hanger. I guess this "new" room used to be a function room that is now converted to a guest room, but the management might have forgotten to put in some closet space??? The air conditioner was still so noisy that we had to turn it off while we slept. The wall was so thin that we could hear people talking on the corridor. All in all, we pay for what we get!!

"Very nice! Very close to Coronado and San Diego."
My brother is in the Navy and stationed at Coronado. There were no hotels that were reasonably priced there so we decided to stay at the Baymont Inn! Very close to Coronado and downtown San Diego! The hotel was very clean, had a very friendly staff, and was very modern. Not to mention it was very reasonably priced :-)

I liked the hotel, very well located, clean and comfortable. My only complain goes to the valet parking. We left the car overnight and the following morning we waited almost 30minutes to receive it and when we did it the driver and passenger seat have been moved as well as all the mirrors and it smelled as if someone had smoked in it. Clearly they used the car and It is totally unprofessional and unpleasant.

"Near Balboa Park"
This is a beautiful home and within walking distance to Balboa park. Quiet area with other nice homes and apartments. It was a little complicated for parking, getting in and out of the house late at night etc.--lots of access cards and a few rules. For the price, I expected a better breakfast. It was fine, but just store bought treats. It seems they could have had homemade items to choose from. It really is a beautiful home and the staff was very nice.

"Nice location with easy parking and good eats"
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is located in a pretty little neighborhood within walking distance of the great restaurants in Little Italy and Gaslamp District (both awesome for dining). Also on walking distance to the harbor and the shopping around there (15 min walk from hotel). Room was very small and outdated. We brought 2 suitcases and we barely had any room to open them and get our stuff out. Bed was small and extremely hard, not comfy at all. Unfortunately the TV/remote did not work and took a long time to fix it ourselves. There is quite a lot of free parking available within max 2 blocks from the hotel. Breakfast was nice (including fresh fruit).
