We booked a three night stay at the tail end of honeymoon and we were thrilled with the Del! Fantastic service, a beautiful room, terrific food, and a view of what is perhaps the most beautiful beach in the country! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! One could spend a day just exploring the grand old building at the center of this hotel. It's magnificent and has been beautifully kept! Our room was in the newer building, where we had the most incredible view. I would wake up in the morning to watch the Navy Seals do their run down the beach. Then with coffee I'd watch real seals and dolphins moving down the coast line. That was my start to every terrific day that we had at the Del! I higly recommend the Hotel del Coronado!

We are a family of five -- 3 small children. We stayed in an oceanfront jr. suite with a huge balcony on the third floor. Getting the right room can either make or break your stay here, so request ahead of time if you want an oceanview or balcony. Beautiful beach. Big pool. Sheerwater Cafe staff was very accommodating to our kids. Food prices can add up with a long stay, so walk into town (there's a La Salsa next door). Place was built in 1888 -- crooked hallways, stairs to nowhere and creaking floors all add to the charm. Definitely recommend for family. So much to do! One note: the Navy SEALS did their runs on the beach early in the morning and came up to the hotel chanting "Good morning Hotel Del" at 7:00am. Fun for early risers, but not so much if you want to sleep.

We have a large family from ages 7 to 74 and the Del was so very accommodating to each and everyone of us and to get in rooms all near each other in the California Cabana's. The rooms are so spacious and worked so well for all of us. One of our favorite highlights were the seashells and quote cards we were given at turn down service. The rooms were so comfortable and the housekeeping staff so friendly. We truly enjoyed the whole resort from the private beach to the fine dinning. The Del is one of the treasured landmarks of California and a must stay at sometime in your life. Thanks again to the Del and its entire team for a wonderful visit.

Built in 1888, with its iconic red turrets piercing the taut horizontal lines of an azure California skyline, the Hotel del Coronado radiates with a confidence of gracious Victorian splendor that is without equal.

Room Tip: The adult pool was very quit and relaxing.

this hotel is not for those who want all modern floors and elevators but as a character hotel with children, it was a time travel trip to days gone by. The creaky floors made for fun, but the rooms were clean and beautiful. Best of all, the service was outstanding. Nice beach in the front. I would certainly recommend it.

The Del is old and tired, and falls way short of it's historic reputation. The rooms are tired, the common area is not kept clean, and the attention to details is lost.

We immediately realised this is one of the oldest hotels in town by the look of the carpets, the wall papers, the bath rooms and by the breath of dust in the air. The service matches the interior and is far behind a proper 5 star hotel such as the usual Four Seasons or Ritz Carltons. Our room wasn't made up when we checked in at midnight, hotel staff took 45 minutes to actually help us, the mini bar was completely empty, an in room dining menu didn't exist, our luggage was left unattended outside of the hotel at night, we had to recover it ourselves and noone from the hotel staff noticed it. Anyone could have taken our suitcases. Valet staff watched us lug around our suitcases both upon arrival and upon departure without helping us. The room layout was highly suboptimal and lighting felt like in a hostel. All in all: Convincing enough to make us check out right the next morning and look for an alternative solution in town.
