What a great place. The room that we had was clean and modern and the staff bent over backwards to accomodate. Perfect location with easy access to anything in Coranodo. We brought our Yorkie puppy along with us on this trip and the the Crown City Inn made it so special and easy for us by not only providing a cute gift basket containing a squeaky toy and treats but giving us a list of pet friendly restaurants. That saved us so much time and aggrivation trying to find places that we all could enjoy without a hassle.

Our most enjoyable stay in the San Diego area so far. This is not a fancy place but they pay attention to the right details to make it pleasant. Everything works and is clean. Desk staff are very nice and we enjoyed down time each afternoon at the small but pretty saltwater pool. The location is close to the ocean and to town. Nice toiletries and towels, nice pool towels too. Cookies and iced tea are served in the afternoon and they are good quality, not cheap stuff. The Bistro restaurant is good and enjoyable to eat outside. Would definately stay again. Coronado traffic was surprisingly heavy.

Room Tip: To drown traffic noise at night, shut the window on the street side of your room. The windows are d...

Thanks for your review! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. My favorite time here in Coronado is September--weather is beautiful, and the summer crowds have gone.
Hope to see you again soon!

Loads of fun get away at the CCI. We were greeted warmly at the front desk on August 30th for a one night stay. We were able to check in a little early which was nice hot coffee, tea and cookies were in the lobby. They loaned us bikes to cruise around the island for the afternoon, then upon return we were told we could keep them till 7:30 pm so we rode back down to the beach for the sunset, which was awesome. Upon return were then informed by front desk that loads of restaurants were within walking distance. Nice touch. Our room was quaint but very clean, comfortable bed, will definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We like a lower level so we do not have to take our bags up stairs.

Thanks for staying at the Crown City Inn. I'm glad you were happy with everything, and so glad you were able to get good use of the bikes. It's the nicest way to get around town! Hope to see you on your next visit to Coronado.

My family and I have been staying at CCI for the last 7 or eight years. We love the quaintness, friendliness and the perfect location - equal distance between the Bay side and Ocean side of the Island. There are many other hotels we would consider staying at, but just love CCI to much to try anywhere else.

So, when you stay at this quaint hotel, you are a bit out of the mayhem of crowded Coronado streets. You are still on the main drag, however, you are far enough away from the city center that you dont get caught up in the traffic.
Our room was quite clean, bathroom was newly remodeled and pretty.Both the room and bath were small, but certainly adequate. The hotel offers beach cruisers (check the seats first to make sure you get one that stays put!), as walking to the beach would be a bit of a haul.
There is courtyard parking, which is great. However, it fills up fast, and then you have to park in the back, which is no biggie.
The place is dog-friendly. We had no issues with any noise from the canines. We loved the cookies, good coffee and iced tea that is complimentary to the guests.
Crown City was $70 less per night than our usual hotel. We will certainly return, as the difference in price makes up for the distance from the beach.

Hi Rebecca J:
Thanks for taking the time to write a response for us. I'm sorry you had trouble with the bike seats--hopefully someone remedied that for you. We do strive to keep our rates low enough as an affordable option in Coronado, and hope we make up for being a bit farther from the beach with the fun "extras" we have.

My husband planned a wonderful trip for our 30th anniversary in May. Started in Vegas and drove to San Diego and stayed on Coronado Island at the Crown City Inn. What a beautiful island. The Inn was perfect. Our room was clean and comfortable. It's walking distance to restaurants and ferry service to the city. Everyone was so friendly! Making plans for another visit.

Perfect, afforable option if your looking for an alternative to larger Coronado hotels with resort fees or mid-size Coronado hotels with parking fees. Walking distance to restaurants on the main drag of Orange St. Rooms a bit small but clean and ours had a remodeled bathroom that was like a mini lux bathroom that you would find in an upscale hotel. Wonder if all the bathrooms are like this?

The attached restaurant is tiny, with a super patio and the breakfast was awesome and the place was packed Sat and Sun mornings.

Only problem was that the air conditioner in our room wasn't working and our room was sweltering when we checked in. Marcia, at the front desk was so apologetic, even trying to get us another room at another property because the room wasn't "...up to their standards for their guests comfort". Wow, this was impressive! Unfortunately, the island was booked so she made a few generous concessions for us and, she completely won us over. This will be our home-base hotel for future visits. Thank you Marcia. Looking forward to coming back.

Hi "Scarpullagirl"
Thanks for your nice response. I appreciate that you noticed that we don't charge extra fees for many things as other hotels do. We strive to be friendly, clean, and simple with a few nice extras. I'm sorry your air conditioner unit wasn't working properly...sometimes they don't "catch up" with the heat, and it should have been on and cool when you arrived--I apologize for that not being the case. Hope to meet you on your next trip to Coronado!
