We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Crown City Inn. Neat, clean, good location and reasonably priced. Bicycles available for guests as well as complimentary afternoon cookies and tea. If you want to eat at the bistro downstairs, call them from your room and be put on the wait list. Nice perk, especially since the seating is... More

We booked 4 rooms for 13 family members and had a wonderful stay. The location was perfect for all our activities. The staff was friendly and helpful. Goody bags were provided for the children and other amenities that enhanced our stay for the whole family. The accommodations were perfect for our family gathering!

When I return to Coronado, I will be devastated if I can't stay at the Crown City Inn. I brought a school group of 32 here in May and the service was second to none. The rooms are super clean and the property is well maintained. This location is excellent for walking either to the shops at the ferry landing... More

We wanted a quick little trip away. This was perfect. Compared to the price of some of the other hotels on Coronado this was great! Our room was clean and although simple, was perfect for us! The bathroom had bee recently totally refurbished with tile shower and new sink. The bed was very comfortable, pillows awesome, towels fluffy! The super... More

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

Thanks so much for your review. We keep ALL of our rooms as clean and fresh as possible--including the "pet rooms." When I used to travel with my own dog, I disliked it so much because we'd end up with an old, smoky room. I vowed never to do that here at Crown City Inn. I'm also glad you enjoyed... 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

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and I agree wholeheartedly that staying in Coronado is better than in Mission Valley--even if you're not staying with us. We very much enjoy our animal guests, and I'm glad you all felt welcome here. With the few specific rules we have regarding animals, I think (and other non pet owners... 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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Coronado, CA, just across the San Diego/Coronado Bay Bridge from downtown San Diego. Crown City Inn is your affordable choice to stay close to the beach. We have a swimming pool, beach cruiser bicycles, and surf/boogie boards to borrow to play in the water. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. On-site Crown Bistro is a favorite with the locals and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service daily. Kids and pets are welcome. Both receive a goody bag at check-in. Don't miss our afternoon "tea" with homemade almond shortbread, oatmeal-cranberry cookies, thumbprint cookies and brownies; and coffee and iced tea bar. ... more   less
