Great place to stay. 15-20 minute walk to the beach. Lots of shops along the way. Would stay here again!

Stayed here for a family wedding on Coronado Island, and was pleasantly suprised at how spotlessly clean and nice the rooms are at such a reasonable price. The ladies at the front desk and the maids are all very helpful, and there is free coffee in the mornings, delicious cookies and brownies plus iced tea in the afternoons. Wonderful bistro on the premises (highlight - homemade jams for your breakfast toast), with attentive waitstaff. Easy walk to anywhere on the island you want to go, or borrow one of the inn's beachcruiser bikes. What a lovely place to relax at a terrific price!

My wife and I decided to spend three nights here and are now talking about returning to Coronado next winter and possibly staying a month here (they have special weekly and monthly rates, btw). I can't say enough about the people who work here and the quality of everything we saw here. You can walk to any part of the city from the Ferry Terminal to the Hotel Del Coronado.

I first stayed here because I just needed a room at short notice on the island. Long story short I think I fell on my feet, it's a bargain - clean, excellent location, friendly staff.

Like some of the reviewers say, it's not 5* living but it punches way above it's weight. This is no typical motel/b&b.


No complaints whatsoever.

Quite simply--it was beyond our expectations. Very enjoyable- CLEAN- and relaxing. For the person looking for a 5 star establishment -pass this by. But for the person looking for a great location, clean place to relax in between adventures-ENJOY. The price was very reasonable and the nice, personal touches add so much. Bistro attached was excellent. Ownership does a nice job of looking at things from the guest point of view. We will definitely be back when we come back to San Diego area.

Crown City Inn appears to have been built in the 1940s, but it has been renovated (many times?) and at this point is a very pleasant and reasonable place to stay on a very pricey island. We stayed there recently (Nov, 2010) for 2 weekend nights and the price was $118/night. The room was clean & roomy enough and everything worked. The bed was fine (we have bad backs and pay special attention to that) and all the linens were very clean and displayed nicely. The TV had some minor problems which I reported and was told that they had had difficulty lately and would report it for repair.
Each afternoon they have iced tea and cookies in the lobby and there is coffee available 24/7.
The Bistro which adjoins the lobby is a real find. We had an excellent breakfast with some friends on the patio -- it was a nice sunny day -- and all of us were quite satisfied.
The pool, while not very big, was heated, clean and adequate for us to get some exercise and some sun.
We plan on returning to this Inn in the future as my son, wife & new baby live in neighboring Imperial Beach in a small apartment and we will be visiting them regularly.

what a gem of a place to stay!!! ITS AS CLEAN AS I HAVE EVER SEEN and the staff is very accomadating and pleasant.. parking is free and the grounds are lush and green and very well kept. we walked everywhere, as Vons grocery store and many good restaurants are within a few blocks from the hotel. we have a dog and he was welcomed with open arms, even given a doggie treat bag and his own bowls!! nice touch......cant wait to return someday soon to such a great little place to stay and to a beautiful island. we are convinced that coronado is far more beautiful and affordable than san diego.
