“charming hotel, clean, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

We are locals who are regulars to Coronado. This was our girl's getaway. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was recently renovated. It was very spacious, and had a small kitchen that worked well for us. One note is that it is a small, not regular sized fridge, so not enough space for a family for groceries for a number of days, but perfect for our needs.

It had hardwood floors, and a nice bathroom as well. The courtyard is charming as well as the front lobby

The staff was very attentive and polite.

No need to pay for parking as there is plenty on the street. You can't beat the location, across from the Hotel Del and a short walk to the beach. I would recommend this place!

Room Tip: room 59 on the corner was great

This is a pleasant place with great location just across the street from the Hotel del Coronado and the beach. This beach is documented as one of the top 10 beaches in America. WOW -what a great beach, great for families. Also the Mexican restaurant on the properity is affordable with good food. Good family location.

Room Tip: Stay away from the restaurant as it is a little noisy at night.

The atmosphere was beatuful and quaint. The decor of the room went well with the feel of the hotel. We had plenty of room in the 1 bedrrom suite and it felt like we were in a private residence. In fact, it was bigger than one of our apartments! The staff helped us and were very attentive to our needs. Having the restarants on site was great and being so central to everything in Coronado was perfect. We loved our stay!

Room Tip: Stairs can be a bit steep and narrow for kids. We asked for a room off the street and we had no pro...

I was very satisfied with the room, staff, and location. It is a charming hotel with a European feel. It is within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, a theater, and the beach.

Wouldn't give this hotel more than an average rating. It is old and needs updating badly. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that, although it had a kitchen, it was poorly outfitted. We had to request two different coffee makers before we got one that worked and although there was a stove they did not provide pot holders or dish cloths. Our room was noisy because every morning at 6:00 am they prepared the restaurant below us for breakfast customers which included dragging tables and chairs around on the sidewalk. I would not recommend this hotel or stay there again.
