This Quaint old inn, built in 1928 was a great rustic place to stay. However when the Inn was sold, just recently it is now almost double the price with no improvements at all. In fact, the place is even more run down than when I was there last year. The previous owner had kept the rooms at 85.00 to... More

Thank you for providing this feedback. I'm not sure who you spoke with during your stay, (about plans for the future of this historic hotel). The previous owners had not upgraded the facilities in 40 years. The new owners of the Hotel Marisol Coronado are excited to announce the completion of our total renovation. Our ambiance is now a mix... More

Anyone who travels south of LA in the summer knows beach towns command high hotel prices. So, if you are on a budget and don't mind a few inconveniences like tiny bathrooms and bare- bones continental breakfasts then VI has great value. Be really cautious when you try to talk to the owners. Their reservations process is a bit unreliable.... More

This hotel is comparatively reasonable and well located near the beach, Hotel Del Coronado, and several restaurants. I like quaint older hotels but this one is run down. The room was clean but not the stairs. So it could work for you if your expectations aren't too high. I liked El Cordova Hotel across the street much better. The rooms... More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights on a trip to surprise our other sister for her birthday. It had been recommended by my niece so we didn't look it up for reviews. The plusses were the location (in walking distance of downtown, the beach and the Hotel Del Coronado) and the price. The minuses - and there... More

My husband and I always stayed at this one time quaint and charming Inn. (not in the last 8 years) I guess nothing good lasts forever! This once well cared for Inn is no longer just that. The bedding is poor, holes in the sheet trim, etc.: Towels are in shambles, worn and raggedy. The carpet was filthy and only... More

I've just spent three nights here with a friend. We were attracted by the website and the reasonable rates. We inspected it quickly before we committed to the stay. It seemed quirky, but acceptable. It was only after we booked in that we noticed how sloppy the housekeeping was. Dust on the TV screen, stained, dirty carpet, uncatalogued life forms... More

I went with my best travel buddy....we have stayed at 2-3 star hotels in Europe and expected same from here. My friend has stayed here for years in past but not recently (last 10 yrs) I will take her word that it was once charming. Now....just a dirty property with uninterested staff. Requests like extra sheet, hair dryer and even... More

I have stayed at this property for more than 20 years, but, not in the last 8+ years. What used to be a quaint, modest European type B&B is now a shabby, dirty, smelly place! Although the location is perfect, the floors are filthy as is the communal kitchen. I cleaned out the communal refrigerator which had milk over a... More

I enjoyed my stay in Coronado - partially because of this place. Close to beach, Hotel del Coronado, downtown and restaurants. Basic coffee kitchen 'bed and breakfast' food in the morning. Liked the front hallway sitting area. However, there is no air conditioning. Got hot one of the days. Nice airflow though. Parking is spotty. Needs internet connectivity. Quiet location... More

The location is great, but that's the end of it. The website boasts of things like "sunny windows", "luxury class" toiletries, "still-warm" breakfast muffins, and ceiling fans. The experience is quite different - good luck trying to sleep here. Since there is no A/C, you will most likely struggle between wanting to be cool (fan-on, windows open), and for it... More
