We stayed at the 1906 Lodge for a week in August, and selected the Lodge after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Overall, our experience was great and we loved the personalized service we received from the Inn Keepers.
We stayed in a room in the Main Building and loved that outside of our room door, there was a small refrigerator stocked with water as well as coffee & tea available each morning by 7:00. The room was clean and provided sufficient space, although did not include a dresser or a closet for unpacking (there was a small antique armoire in the corner of the room). The room had 3 large windows allowing for natural light, had a great shower and a sink outside of the bathroom, which was great in allowing two of us to get ready. We also loved the evening turn down service.
The breakfast provided each day was delicious, it included fresh fruit, baked goods, cereal, juices and a hot entrée that was made before it was served, not kept in a warming dish. We ate breakfast each day in the garden area, it was lovely and peaceful, beautiful flowering plants and a fountain in the center.
We attend the “happy hour” at the Lodge a few days, light snacks (cheese and crackers, fruit, nuts) were provided as well as wine and we enjoyed mingling with other guests. We also had the opportunity to meet one of the (owing) “Partners” of the Lodge and enjoyed hearing about the history of the 1906 Lodge and the renovations. If you choose to stay at 1906 Lodge, we would encourage you to look at the photo book detailing the 6 year renovation of the 1906 Lodge (incredible to see where they started).
In addition, The 1906 Lodge provides free underground parking to guests, which after some research , prior to booking our stay we realized was a great added value if you choose to stay on Coronado Island
As we mentioned above, the personalized service from the Inn Keepers was amazing. We were greeted each day by name, asked about our day’s activities and the Inn Keepers offered suggestions for activities and dining (day after day their suggestions were spot-on, good restaurants, locations and attractions to see were great). In addition, the Inn Keepers accommodated our special requests, we planned to have a picnic dinner at sunset one evening and the Inn Keepers provided us with a packed rolling cooler bag for our dinner and beverages (how nice!). On our final morning since we would be leaving before breakfast was served, a “breakfast to go” box was provided – what a nice treat when we opened on our flight home.
While we’d recommend 1906 Lodge to our friends and family, as well as stay ourselves again, there were few areas that could be improved. In the week we stayed, the air conditioning in our room was never quite right (not for lack of trying by us or the Inn Keepers) and we couldn’t get the room to a comfortable temperature for sleeping (it was unseasonably warm the week we were in Coronado). In addition for the 1906 Lodge only being open for 3 years, the mattress was squeaky and soft, not incredibly comfortable. Finally, while 1906 Lodge provides free WiFi, we were unable to get a signal on our iPad in our guest room (no issue in using the WiFi from the common areas of the Lodge).
If 4 ½ stars were a rating, we’d give that – not an option on Trip Advisor, hence the 4 stars.
