I booked this hotel for my daughter and I two days before ComicCon. We have a one bedroom suite, which is very quaint (not so much like the picture on their site though). Our couch has a stain on it, the dishes in the cupboard were dirty, and it is impossible to regulate the temperature of the shower. Once you... More

Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay and would like to apologize for your experience. We have recently learned that there are water pressure issues in a few of our rooms. We are currently working with a local plumbing company to correct the problem. I have personally doubled my efforts... More

We had a delightful time staying at El Cordova during our retreat to Coronado. Loved the architecture and central court yard of El Cordova. Even though it was mid-July we were comfortable with the room AC units. There were a couple of minor negatives: wi-fi was not accessible to Rm. #119, furthest room from the center of the property, so... More

We stayed in room 33, which was a deluxe room. It was on the second floor and quite. It is one of the newly remodeled rooms. If you are staying in this hotel for a short amount of time and won't really be in your hotel room the whole stay, a deluxe room is perfect. My husband and I stayed... More

We walked into the Suite #36 and our mouths just dropped to the floor. Around every corner was another gasp of beauty in the decorative design of our room. The kitchen was breath taking. The king bed was especially amazing! The bathroom also was fantastic with a walk in large shower and a little wicker dresser to put our toiletries.... More

I have been bringing my daughter and grandson to San Diego once or twice a year for 8 years. We normally stay at two other hotels which we alternate on each visit. Because of an occupancy problem we had to stay a night at a different hotel this year. The room was comfortable, rustic and quaint. The bed was far... More

The staff is always friendly, great customer service. Restaurants have great food, service and good prices. Love the rooms, we have stayed in and cooked in our kitchenette for dinner at least one night each time we've gone. Rooms are clean, hotel prices are desirably priced.

Loved our stay at the El Cordova. Was a perfect spot for our family of 5. Have stayed at the Hotel Del before and were blown away at how expensive and tight the accomodations were. The El Cordova was close to the beach and the rooms allowed everyone to have their own space. The kitchen was sufficient and the complimentary... More

We have stayed at El Cordova Hotel many times. It is a well-kept secret! We love the Spanish decor and the convenience of the location. It is 2 blocks from the ocean. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff always so friendly. The breakfast is wonderful and they are so welcoming, too. It is a bit noisy in... More

We enjoyed our stay at the El Cordova very much. When we opened the door to our one bedroom suite we were pleasantly surprised, the room was huge, everything was very clean and we had a balcony overlooking the pool. You couldn't ask for better value for your dollar. The only drawbacks were they don't have their own parking and... More
