Price is better than the other hotels around the area. Rooms are a bit sparse not much to recommend but the location and ambiance. Best thing about Coronado is the beach - golden sands, fantastic sunset.

Check out their on-line specials which offer great discounts. We chose the Historic package that included two nights, a DVD of "Some Like It Hot" (the nearby Del Coronado Hotel was where the film was shot), a $25 restaurant voucher, some candy and a free ticket to a walking tour. What a great deal...and we got to stay in well appointed deluxe rooms. The staff is very professional and helpful. When we phoned the front desk because we were experiencing difficulty connecting with their free WiFi internet service, a technician was at our door in minutes to help. The old mansion is elegant and historic. You'll enjoy breakfast in the library or out on the sunny patio.

We arrived at The Glorietta Bay Inn just before 11am as we had just come of a cruise ship. We expected that we would have to leave our luggage and come back for check in, but the staff (especially Mike) could not have been more helpful and said that our room was ready for occupation. The room was a good size with a table and 2 chairs, and a good size bathroom. There is a swimming pool and outside terrace where you can enjoy the view towards the harbour. Continental breakfast is complimentary and there was a good choice which was more than adequate. Coffee and tea are available throughout the day. Just before we were due to checkout we noticed that one of our suitcases had been damaged (presumably when it came off the cruise ship). The only solution we could think of was to put some duck tape round it, and once again Mike came up trumps sending one of his maintenance staff to do a repair job.

Right across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado, about a block from the beach, and within easy walking distance of a number of great restaurants. And the neighborhood was great. Coronado was such a fun, relaxing place to stay in San Diego.

The room itself was pretty basic but nice and clean. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

If you're in the mood for Mexican food, walk across the street to Miguelito's. We had DELICIOUS fish tacos and margaritas.

We decided that a weekend at the hotel Del Coronado was what we wanted, but not what we wanted to pay for. We chose the Glorietta Bay Inn because it is right across the street from the 'Del' and cost about half. Not that there's anything wrong with this hotel.. It is part historic mansion and part modern hotel, is spotlessly clean and the staff is very attentive and accommodating. The continental breakfast is perfect for getting you fed and out the door to the beach, but if you're looking for a full breakfast, downtown Coronado (and ifs restaurants) is a short walk down the block..
We can't wait to return!
