Our favorite place to stay in Santa Barbara, the Marina Beach Motel, recommended their sister property on Coronado, the Crown City Inn, as a nice dog friendly place to stay. We're glad we followed their advice. We just returned from an overnight stay with our two dogs and we had an excellent time. The inn is within easy walking distance... More

This was my second stay at the Crown City Inn. Both times I have found the inn to be perfect for a get-away to Coronado. The inn is within walking distance to all that Coronado has to offer: the beautiful beach, the cute downtown shops, and the restaurants. The staff is top notch, the Bistro is perfect for a quick...

My wife & I stayed here 12 February 2013. As others have written, the desk staff is exceptional. We dealt with three clerks and each was magnificent. Coronado is small; inn location is good. The Bistro seems expensive, but the whole island is so. My issues may be specific to me: 1. The booking was "queen". We were in 108,... More

Thanks for sending in your comments. We have mini queen (room slightly smaller & at lower price), queen, and king rooms. I appreciate your feedback for the door blinds...I will look into a shade to darken the room better. I'm sorry you had issues with the swim team. We found them to be very well behaved, but walking back and... More

We booked a stay at the Crown City Inn for our first stay at Coronado Island, and we were not disappointed. I was a bit skeptical at first, because the price of this place is so much lower than other hotels on Coronado. Although the motel itself is not overly fancy, it is centrally located, has a quaint feel and... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed the Crown City Inn, and all we have to offer. It is so nice to be out in the beautiful Coronado weather on a bike, seeing all the quaint houses, shops, and restaurants, and of course the bay and beach. We look forward to your next stay! More

It was an easy walk down to the hotel Del for the Christmas show The walk home at the end of the evening was magical with all the trees lit up. At 1 quarter of the cost of the hotel Dels rooms we have plenty of money left over for food and drink

Thanks so much for your response. Christmas in Coronado is unlike any other with the Hotel Del Coronado and Orange Avenue lit up with lights, the San Diego boat parade, the Coronado Christmas parade, and the Holiday Open House at all the businesses. We love to be able to offer a place to stay for a reasonable price. We hope... More

My husband, baby, and I stayed at the Crown City Inn together January 2012. We requested a room close to the pool and they were happy to do it. When we arrived the staff were friendly and helped us out by moving us away from other guests, without moving us from the pool, so our crying baby wouldn't bother them.... More

We stayed here Nov 16-18. Great staff, clean comfortable rooms, & updated bathroom. I agree with another reviewer, updated comforters would definitely make it more modern. We would totally stay here again! Loved it.

We just stayed here on Sunday, Oct. 14th and loved this place. It's an older hotel but very well maintained and the bathrooms are remodeled. The beds could use new comforters to make it look more modern and it had a slightly musty smell as it was older, but those were the only negatives. They have cookies, tea & coffee... More

This hotel is a great find in a great location! We seldom travel without our two yorkies and have found that while a lot more hotels are allowing our dogs they are also charging an arm and a leg to bring them.

Hi MANDM1970: I'm glad you and your Yorkies had a good time in Coronado, and glad you loved the Crown City Inn. Sorry you had a run-in with the "pet police," but normally, if you're eating at the Bistro or sitting by the pool, leaving your pet in the room is not a problem. We have one new person here,...
