We had never been to Coronado before and were extremely pleased with this quaint little hotel right in the perfect location. Just cross the street and you are at the beach or the Del. Walk anywhere for shopping and food. No need to get a car while staying here. Great experience.

My husband and I stayed at the El Cordova for our 35th anniversary, and it was the best experience. They upgraded us to a wonderful suite and even brought us flowers and a card. It is the best location for walking around and is surrounded by lots of restaurants. We loved our stay there!

Pros: Excellent location across the street from the Hotel del Coronado, 1/2 block from the beach. Clean and comfortable room. Walk to shops and restaurants. Cons: No parking, lots of noise. Street noise, restaurant noise, morning restaurant cleaning noise. Unimpressive breakfast. Rooms seemed to either overlook the street, the restaurant, or alleys and parking lots. No quiet spots to sit... More

I booked this hotel for my family to stay during Spring Break. The day we were supposed to check in, I got a call letting me know that our family suite was not available and that everything was booked. Why did they take the reservation, then? I was told that Cordova had made accomodations at a nearby hotel with the... More

I really liked the building, the service was good, the cleaning staff was great, and the location terrific. The restaurant in the courtyard off of our room was loud until 9:00 p.m. / 10:00 p.m. and loud again around 6:30 a.m. when they began cleaning - the sound travelled into our room through the doors and restricted our sleep.

El Cordova was a great location to stay. Just returned from there for 5 nights with my husband and 18 month old. The hotel itself is spread across a few buildings with little paths and courtyards and stores sprinkled between. On one side of the block there is a residential/condo neighborhood - very quiet. On the front side of the... More

The deal breaker for me is that this hotel offers no parking at all, not even valet. I was instructed to drive a few blocks away, and try to find a space in front of someone's house. Really? I was working at the base, leaving and coming back in the dark, this was not good for me at all. Of... More

the "full" kitchen includes a very small refrigerator, a stove, a sink, 6 bowls, 5 glasses, 5 plates, a mircowave and a kerug. There is one small pan, a medium pan, a large pan, and a frying pan. There is nothing to clean the dishes with. The kitchen was filthy, but there is nothing to clean with, and no maid... More

Right in the hub of Coronado. 5-10 minute walk to assorted restaurants shopping and coffee shops. Not new but very quaint in a Mexican theme. Definitely reccommend it. Close to the beach and the trolley line stops right there.
