Visiting from the UK we had planned to stay for four nights but this hotel fitted our requirments so well that we stayed another night rather than returning to LA.
Excellant location with views of Downtown and Coronado Island. The other side of the hotel you have a view of the Marina. As I like aircraft I chose the bay view, with activity at NAS North Island.
Hotel may be dated but I like that, rather than a souless "modern". Rooms were very spacious, well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. Beds comfortable with good linen.
Reception were very helpful and curtious and other staff worked hard to make us feel welcome.
I found the free Wi-Fi suitable for my needs.
Parking was convient and although there was a small charge it is not excessive.
Breakfast is included and although lacks imagination was fit for purpose and the staff worked hard to keep it going, although cereal bowls seemed to in short supply.
We had two meals in the resturant and that is where the place fails. The menu is unimaginative. The food was over cooked and not well balanced. A Cobb Salad was overpowered by the blue cheese. The waiting staff were, however, attentive and pleasent.
This hotel scores well on value for money and location being close to all that San Diego has to offer. Easy reach of airport, attractions and some very good restaurants.
When we return to San Diego we will not hesitate to book Bay Club Hotel for our stay but will be eating elsewhere.
