Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice Rooms. Friendly Staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Views are excellent. Staff is friendly. Food is a little plain, though. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

"Bay Club Hotel and Marina"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
A little known gem of a hotel with 153 rooms. Close to the airport, shuttle transportation provided, free parking, free buffet breakfast, and all rooms have a view of the marina or bay. Next door to Humphrey's and close to many Shelter Island and Point Loma restaurants. Great area for a walk, nice pool and hot tub area. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Our Board will definitely keep this on our "let's go back" list. Only down side was jets taking off at North Island until about 10 pm.

"Ensign USD"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Bay Club was a great place to hold our annual safety meeting. With the number of employees we had in attendance they did everything they could to make sure each of us was happy. The staff was amazing and very professional treated us with the utmost respect. Planning to go back next year.
