Comfortable and of good value. Parking on premises is a plus but limited. No problems finding roadside parking on the just outside the inn. The housekeeping staff seemed on-the-ball and friendly. There is a small pool within the premises. We stayed in a twin room with my bed just next to the corridor/window...needs to little getting used to having people...

Thank you for staying with us, and for taking the time to review. Our housekeeping staff IS friendly, and most have been with us for almost 10 years! We hope to update the walkways & stairways in the Fall--so yes the other guests do walk by the windows of most rooms--soon there will be little or no sound as they're...

Stayed several days. Well located on the island. The Bistro is a great place for breakfast, which is attached to the motel. Parking is usually an issue on Coronado but you can usually find a spot behind the motel which is accessible thru a breezeway.

This is by far my favorite place to stay with my Yorkies. The location allows walking to the beaches and shopping. The restaurant in the front of the Inn does a wonderful job preparing delicious food and good selection of wine to accompany your meal. Crown City Inn's staff is wonderful and enjoy making your stay special for your pets...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our 42nd Anniversary trip. A blast from the past, older mission style hotel. Quaint, clean and comfortable. Within walking distance of downtown and the ferry. Staff friendly and accommodating. Rooms rather small but adequate. Best place to stay in Coronado if you don't want to break the bank.

Found this gem on Trip Advisor after looking for place in Coronado to stay at, where we could find parking, a clean room, good price and be within relative walking distance, as so much of our California vacation before that was spent driving. After a 2 1/2 minute thrilling drive across the Coronado Bridge from SD into Coronado, we arrived...

The hotel is OK, good value for money, particularly if you compare it with the rates at the hotels in the vicinity. The reception personnel is very friendly and helpful. The room amenities are just fine. The size of the room is also absolutely OK. Pool is a bit small, but that's really OK. The only thing that was really...

Stayed here for 5 nights. Rooms are clean, comfortable and quite spacious. Hotel is nicely located about half way across the peninsula, about 15 mins walk from either the ferry or Del Coronado beach. A good choice of restaurants nearby including one right next door which was open for breakfast. Afternoon coffee and cookies in reception a nice touch. The...

Having stayed at The Loew's further down on the peninsular many times, this is our "go-to" place when visiting Coronado with our dogs. The Del is ridiculously over-priced (and over-run), Loews's is actually pretty good but the Crown City Inn wins out because...not only are they dog friendly at a reasonable price, but the inn is within fairly easy walking...

Driving into the drive of the Crown City Inn was like taking a step back in time in the hustle and bustle of big city life. The room was clean and neat, the beds were comfortable, and the stay was very reasonably priced. The bathroom was nicely updated with loads of towels! The inn is centrally located and easy to...

We love this cute hotel. Our second stay here. Super clean. Within walking distance to everything. Only drawback is that the internet is really slow. But otherwise perfect! Love this hotel! Super clean, all refurbished, really friendly staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Coronado, CA, just across the San Diego/Coronado Bay Bridge from downtown San Diego. Crown City Inn is your affordable choice to stay close to the beach. We have a swimming pool, beach cruiser bicycles, and surf/boogie boards to borrow to play in the water. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. On-site Crown Bistro is a favorite with the locals and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service daily. Kids and pets are welcome. Both receive a goody bag at check-in. Don't miss our afternoon "tea" with homemade almond shortbread, oatmeal-cranberry cookies, thumbprint cookies and brownies; and coffee and iced tea bar. ... more   less
