Glorietta Bay Inn
Ranked #3 of 17 Hotels in Coronado
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We spent my birthday at the Glorietta Bay Inn this past Saturday. It was our first time there and we will definitely stay again. Even though Coronado is only 30 minutes from where we live, it felt totally different. The Inn was originally a mansion belonging to the Spreckels family built in 1908. You can stay in the Mansion or in the rooms added in 1975. I would suggest a room on the second floor with a view of the bay. The inn is right across the street from the famous Hotel Del Coronado which was also built by Spreckels. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially, Laura, Kari and John. There is a very nice continental breakfast with fruit, sweet rolls, bagels, juice, etc.

We took a 4 mile walk on Saturday. There was a book sale and annual Garden Club Flower show going on Saturday and Sunday. We had lunch at Miguel's Cocina which was very good. Miguel's is only a block from the hotel.

In the evening we had dinner at Peohe's Peohe's - Coronado Island | Part of the Chart House Family of Restaurants at the Ferry Docks with an amazing View of the harbor and San Diego Skyline. Great food but the service could have been better.

Sunday morning we rented bikes at Little Sam's on Orange St. which is also a block from the hotel near Miguel's. They were very helpful. The bike rents for $6 an hour. He only charged us $20 for 2 bikes for 2 hours. We rode all around the island and stopped along the way for the annual Hot Rod and Classic Car Show. I suggest riding in the morning because there isn't as much traffic.

I just stayed here for two nights with my family, and it was perfect for the five of us. The Junior Suite was just what we needed, and the eye for detail (very good baby gate on the stairs) has put this hotel on our list of places we will return to. The only downside was that we could not figure out the video/tv system. Close to the beach, easy walk to resturants, and an extremely helpful and pleasant staff.

Room Tip: The Junior Suites in the new part of the hotel are good for families.

Coronado is such a lovely place, and the Glorietta Bay Inn didn't disappoint. Very clean, nice staff, great location, and hard to leave such an amazingly comfortable bed each morning! The stairs might be rough for elderly guests, especially if they are carrying luggage, but the staff are very helpful. The continental breakfast was good, and it was nice to have free Internet. We didn't need to do laundry, but they do have a couple of washers & dryers. All-in-all a great place to stay.

We stayed here when we came to San Diego to get married and have been back once since then ...... We very much enjoy the location and hotel staff is very nice, fun and friendly. We stayed in a different mansion room each time and found both rooms to be unique and romantic. We are both looking forward to going back again.

Location, location, location. This hotel is an amazing value. Right across the street from the hotel del Coronado and walking distance to everything downtown. Great restaurants, beaches, and tons of shops. Claudia, Fe and the staff took amazing care of our families special needs. We loved the continental breakfast and the great history of the building. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We had many types of rooms from a hotel room to a 2 bedroom condo. Loved the kitchenette.

We vacationed to San Diego for a week in March. Stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn for 3 of the nights, and I must say that this was my favorite of all! The room was very nice. We had a nice balcony with beautiful bouganvilla flowers! The bathroom is small, but the rest of the inn makes up for it. The staff is wonderful and cheery. Continental breakfast is a nice treat. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

We just spent Easter weekend at the Glorietta Bay Inn one Coronado Island. It was a great stay. We had a two queen bed room in the modern section overlooking the pool. It was clean and comfortable. The old mansion building is beautiful. The continental breakfast is a big plus, and the location can't be beat. It is right across the street from the Hotel del Coronado, and in walking distance to the beach and all the restaurants and shops in town. We will definitely stay here again for future trips. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is that the bathrooms are small and only have a shower, no tub.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from Orange Avenue, which is noisy.
