“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Perfection! Everyone went out of their way to do anything that would make us comfortable and happy. I would like to particularly thank Keri, who is the kind of person I would like a s a close friend, and Kevin too, who was also so nice. The housekeeping staff and maintenance deserve a special shout out, too. I kept spilling things, and so housekeeping had about triple the usual amount of work, and maintenance gave me a beautiful little present. What a spectacular place. I can't say enough.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the mansion if possible!

My husband and I had to stay here 1 night by "default" because our hotel was overbooked. We LOVED it and were sorry that we didn't just stay here for our entire trip! The room was small but very clean, and the beds/pillows were SUPER comfy! Our room had a great balcony, but it made it a bit noisy in the morning due to other guests arriving/leaving. The continental breakfast was a surprise, and it was perfect….from well stocked fresh fruit, juices, yummy pastries, breads, muffins, cereal, etc., it was wonderful. We weren't even out of our cab and a staff member was there greeting us and taking our luggage. Everyone on staff was just delightful and willing to please. We ended our trip at the Hotel del Coronado, and for WAYYYYY less money we were happier at Glorietta Bay! Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Our room was right above the entrance. The balcony was great, but if you want a quiet morning, I wo...

Stayed 5 nights here while attending a conference at the Convention Centre
Staff could not be more helpful. Comfortable rooms, healthy breakfast. Friendly , non corporate, atmosphere, and close to beach location was the perfect way to start the day before a $20 taxi ride into concrete jungle.
Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Glorietta Bay hotel last week, and were thrilled at our stay. We went to celebrate our anniversary, and couldn't be happier. The hotel, and furnishings at our room in the mansion were wonderful. But in addition, the hotel staff were attentive, and pleasant, and made us feel special. The hotel has a beautiful view of the bay, and is also close to shopping, restaurants, and travel.

Room Tip: Look on line and spend the extra dollars for a room in the mansion. It will make the stay more memo...

This is a nice "hotel"; the main house is more of a B & B atmosphere and the "modern buildings" are more motel in design. There is a little bay view from some rooms while others can just look out on the walkway/courtyard or parking lot. The beds, linens are very comfortable. Lighting in the bathrooms can be better and our view room didn't have double sinks. GBI is across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado so you can easily walk across the street to whatever is going on there and beach access (but you have lug your stuff down some paths so if you have kids and lots of beach gear, get a luggage "trolley" of some sort to make it easier.. GBI is an easy walk into "town" so you can get to nice restaurants without getting in your car. (Go to Miguel's). The complimentary breakfast is a slightly upgraded continental with hard boiled eggs in the mix. The fruit was "iffy". Mixed fruit cup has grapefruit in it which isn't good for persons taking certain medications. The staff is very helpful and responds quickly to requests. (We needed a new nightlight and additional pillows).

Room Tip: make sure you specify "view" cuz you can end up with a parking lot room or a room that is...

I stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn on a weekend and was impressed by the level of service that I received. Exceptionally friendly staff who went out of their way to accommodate guests. I sat in the lobby early one morning to do some work while my husband slept and overheard numerous guests interact with the front desk. The attitude was positve, warm and friendly. Genuinely caring about every guest. When I walked to and from my room - every staff member met my gaze and gave me a "hello". The room was very comfortable and offered every amenity that I would have expected including Gilcrest and Soames bath products. The continental breakfast offered is a plus. The location is fantastic - across from the Hotel Del, the beach and within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. I would highly recommednd the Glorietta Bay Inn!

This is a truly charming little hotel. Great location, right across from the Hotel Del. We stayed for 3 nights in a floor level room just off the pool with a shady patio. The room was very comfortable, the staff was super friendly and the continental breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. The hot cider served in the evenings with gingersnap cookies were to die for...very relaxing patio to sit on day and night - much quieter than the chaos across the street at the Del. Easy walking distance to just about everything...and all of this for a fraction of the price that you will pay across the street.

Only area of improvement I can see for the hotel is their bathrooms - quite small and in need of some updating...other than that, this is the place to stay when visiting Cornonado..
