This is the perfect location in Coronado especially considering the price. You are walking distance from shopping, dining and the beach. Since this was a family vacation, it was especially convenient for the kids. The rooms are big and the suites are fantastic! I can't wait to be back.

I really like this place. We have a family home in Coronado, but for big holidays, such as 4th of July, we always tell our friends to stay here. 4th of July in Coronado is crazy busy, so I suggest booking no later than mid March. If you're lucky enough, you might get upgraded to the presidential suite, we did... More

Our room is a suite with kitchen and dining area. Very nicely furnished. There are parts and pans in the kitchen and plates and cups. There is a small refrigerator and stove. It is close to lots of shopping grocery stores and pharmacies. Or our restaurants right next-door and places to rent bicycles and beach gear.

We actually live in San Diego and decided we wanted to stay here and enjoy the beach. El Cordova was perfect! With their suites, we were able to bring some food, and have a separate room so our son could sleep while we were up at night. The beach is right across the street and the pool and hot tub... More

Have stayed at the El Cordova several times. Another great stay. Loved the addition of breakfast. However needs a free gluten free options. One bed room suite was very spacious. Could use a little update, but has good charm. Excellent Group on deal with no issues at check in!

My husband and I just returned home from a great trip to Coronado Island. I really can't complain about anything regarding this hotel. It's boutique style, old and has history, I knew going into it that the walls are thin and *gasp* stairs that I had to walk up.. Honestly, anyone that complains about that... Anyway, we loved this hotel!... More

Overall we liked the El Cordova. Rooms were clean and personnel were exceptional. We stayed 3 nights. There was a strange smell in the rooms but thankfully, I always carry Febreze, which helped. On the last night there, we had no hot water and I had to shower in cold water. Also, the electricity to the fridge, microwave didn't work... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for part of our honeymoon. I found El Cordova on Trip Advisor, and I'm so glad I did! We could not afford the Hotel Del, so I started looking for other options. Now, I doubt we'd stay anywhere else in Coronado but here. El Cordova is such an adorable place with a friendly... More
