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.
