Stayed here one night, paid $180 for a "bay view," no, we were on the first floor with a view of the parking lot. When we checked in the guy at the front desk made it sound as if we were given a room with a great view. Aside from the crappy view, the room is EXTREMELY outdated, it felt...

The best thing about this hotel is the pictures on the website. I was very disappointed in the dated rooms, furniture, and amenities. The carpet in my room had what looked to be old ground-in gum stains..so be sure to bring socks or flip flops for walking around in your room. The bedspreads (which are conveniently NOT shown in the...

We always enjoy our stay at Bay Club. It is perfect if you are attending a concert at Humphreys- and much more affordable. The breakfast was an added bonus. The rooms are basic, but large and clean. Great views! We will definitely choose Bay Club again.

We picked the Bay Club Hotel & Marina because we stayed there before and really enjoyed it then but it's true that nothing stays the same, in this case it JUST got worse. Rooms badly need renovating but the major disappointment was the absence of their once great breakfast buffet. What a disappointment now! Previously you could get a wonderful...

Loved staying at the Bay Club on Shelter Island in San Diego. It's so convenient being able to watch the ship traffic going in and out of San Diego harbor. The Bay Club is a lovely property with a most friendly and helpful staff.

First time staying on Shelter Island, July 29-Aug 2 - Hotel was what we were expecting since other relatives have stayed there. Not the most elegant but very comfortable for the price. Our room was right next to a construction zone so the noise started by 7AM. Didn't ask to move since we were out of the room most of...

I lie staying on Shelter Island. It is a beautiful area. The staff was very friendly. Food in the restaurant was very good, though service could be very slow. I had to chase down a waitress several times. The rooms are spacious, but need some updating. The bathroom is tiny and needs new tiling. Do not get a room over...

It was the most homely hotel i've ever stayed in. Staff was friendly and gave us a great deal on a last minute room. they charge for parking but...

Our family of 4 stayed here for a 3-night visit in June. They were running a special with the 3rd night free, so the price was very affordable, especially with the included breakfast. I thought the location and ambience were charming and kind of nostalgic. The room was a nice size and clean, with high ceilings (2nd floor). The view...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your candid review of our hotel. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of our free night promotion that we were running in the late spring. It is disheartening to hear, though, that you did not enjoy your balcony. If there was anything we could have...
