Our blended families took over half the motel for a weekend wedding. It is extremely easy to find your way from the airport and only about 10 minutes away. You turn in under a portico and then go into the courtyard. The whole thing has the feel of a hacienda. There are only about 6 parking spaces plus one for... More

I stayed for 4 nights in mid-March and enjoyed this hotel very much. Friendly and helpful staff. I was alone and had room 108, which another reviewer said was pretty bright at night. It was somewhat, but I did not mind. The room was clean and comfortable, big towels, great shower, convenient microwave and fridge. Shopped at Boney's Bayside Market... More

Sometimes I worry about places that say they're "pet friendly" because some places think that's an excuse to have shabby, dirty rooms. The Crown City Inn was nothing like that. The room was clean and spacious, it was nice to have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom amenities were really nice, the towels were so soft and fluffy.... More

What a great place to stay for your pooch and family when visiting San Diego. The property, though older, is clean and fairly updated. The management couldn't be nicer regarding dog hospitality with a doggie welcome gift bag. The restaurant on site is very nice and makes arriving later in the day a pleasure..just call in for room service or... More

We stayed the week of January 18th; wonderful staff, very helpful! The small touches are what sets this small property apart: the tea/coffee/homemade cookies every afternoon, the bikes for free use, the nice choice of soaps in the room; towels on the lounges around the pool, clean easy to use washer/dryer area, beautiful landscaping. Our room was completely renovated with... More

We stayed here this week (last week of December, 2013) and had a marvelous time. The reviews are accurate: clean rooms (with local coffee, tea, and hot chocolate), refrigerator, microwave, iced tea and cookies in the lobby in the afternoon, coffee 24/7. The bathroom in our room had been redone and was great (slate tile, etc.). We borrowed bikes and... More

Happy New Year! I'm so glad you were able to stay with us on your vacation, and very glad you enjoyed what we have to offer. Your comment about Crown City Inn not being a fancy resort is correct--we are small, simple, clean, affordable. I hope to see you again soon. Melissa More

On our recent Christmas vacation, we just couldn't bear to leave. Fortunately for us, the Crown City Inn happily accommodated us AND our fur kids for the night. Although the rooms are small, they are very clear and comfy with nice extras like a microwave and refrigerator, plus FREE parking! That's a biggie on Coronado. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More

I appreciate your having taken the time to write a review and a detailed one at that! To answer your question about whether we have a fitness room/spa; unfortunately we do not. However, we have complimentary day passes for our guests to use at the local gym 5 blocks away. Melissa More

This is more of an roadside Inn, think of motor lodges from the seventies. The rooms are clean , bathrooms remodeled, and the staff is genuinely pleasant and helpful. For the price and the fac it's pet friendly The Crown City is a deal. There's a park just one block from the hotel, perfect for puppy walks and a Starbucks... More

Thank you for your very specific review. I'm glad you were happy with our Inn. I'm really glad you mentioned the coffee because bad hotel coffee is one of my biggest pet-peaves when travelling. I don't know if you noticed, but the same coffee is in each room with a small coffee maker. I hope to see you again sometime... More

This small hotel is affordable as compared to most accommodation in Coronado. I have stayed there four times in the last year and have always looked forward to dining at there Bistro. Love the homemade preserves! Breakfast there has always been one of my favorites. They have daily specials and that have seafood, which is a favorite of mine. Friendly... More

Thanks so much for the kind review and for staying with us repeatedly last year. That's a great compliment that you'd return to us with all the choices in Coronado. And no, having the Bistro here doesn't hurt either. I love the preserved too, and get somewhat addicted to it, so have to stay away from it usually. Hope to... More
