This was a return trip to the Coronado Marriott based on the fact that we had a delightful stay one year ago.
When we arrived we had lunch outside immediately since we were famished from the long air trip.
The first thing that I noticed was that a filthy black pigeon was eyeing my table from about six inches away.
I hoped that would change but when the food arrived the pigeon and three others actually swooped onto my table and ran for the food.
This was disgusting and when you pay $60.00 for your lunch you do not want to fight a dirty pack of pigeons for the privilege.
We talked to the waiter and he said, "Yeah, they are all over" and left.
The next morning we tried to eat outside but under a covered area immediately off the main dining room (thinking that would inhibit the pigeons). It was actually worse. There were high level columns which the birds used as perches and clustered in large numbers and watched and waited as you ate and suddenly lunged for our eggs in a startling moment.
In addition the umbrellas at the pool could not be opened since they lacked a simple piece of hardware to secure them. The pool chairs which were once nice are now looking like they were the pillows for a pick up truck for a long, long time.
It is sad to see a careless management team ruin what was a very attractive Marriott property. I wanted to give Marriott this feedback directly but they no longer have any comment cards or anywhere on their website to contact them. Also, they sent a follow up email in the past which asked about the quality of your stay. Nothing this time, so I am sharing what happened to us in our three night stay which will not be repeated next year.
