For the money your spending here you should be able to comfortably sit on the couch without worrying if the upholstery has ever been cleaned before. It was so old and stained I skipped the couch all together. The curtains were just as bad. The furniture was old and scratched up and very dusty. Super thin walls. The shower didn't... More

I went here with my boyfriend for a conference at the San Diego Convention Center. The pool and nearby beaches were kept him entertained, while the location was an easy commute to get to the convention center. Its true that there would have been several closer options however, this one was a great compromise for the two of us. The... More

Overall I thought the El Cordova Hotel was a nice place to stay, however feel that the front desk staff could have been a little friendlier and helpful. The hotel is very conveniently located, easy access to the beach, food and shopping.

We had a great time and experience, this is our 3rd time staying at the Cordova. The rooms and grounds were very clean. The location is awesome, right in the middle of all the action...shops, restaurants and the beach. The value is 2nd to none! We will definitely be back!

The location was great; by shops, restaurants, the beach, and The Del. The staff was friendly and provided information. About 3 hours after I had checked out and was driving along the coast to L.A., I was called by a hotel rep. I was advised that I had forgotten my cell charger and my tablet in the room. That alone...

Our room was clean, comfortable, well-appointed, well-located, as is the hotel: a pretty warren of Spanish style buildings that surround a lively patio of restaurant Miguel's and next to the restaurant, for hotel guests, a heated pool and hot tub -- very nice! Some rooms are nearer to the restaurant so it can get a bit louder in the evenings,... More

The Adobe style, all the beautiful Mexican tile work everywhere, inside and out, the great patio and barbecue area, the pool, all contributed to an amazing ambience. Absolutely charming!!!!!

We always stay here. It is close to beach and activities, and our relatives who live here can find us easily. The hotel is in a busy area, and there is a restaurant downstairs which is noisy until 10 or so. Building is old so not everything is like the Hyatt. You have to love the overall atmosphere.
