This quaint little place could not have been nicer. We had a cat with us and our room was not disturbed unless we were there. It was situated for easy access to all of San Diego. Coronado island itself is picturesque and offers plenty of things to do. The bistro there was fabulous and the wait staff very friendly. Parking... More

So glad you (and your cat!) had a nice stay. We haven't had a cat guest for a while, so it was nice to see one come along on a trip. My cat would never be able to stand it! Hope to see you all again sometime soon. More

The small motel (approx 20 rooms) with a u shaped parking/courtyard feels cozy although on a very busy street. The rooms are updated, clean, and quiet. There is an outdoor (seasonal) pool, attached "bistro", wi-fi and lobby computer for guest's use. Coffee/tea w/free cookies, but no breakfast. Breakfast is served in the bistro, but not until 8:00 a.m. Marcia, the... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We checked in very late and the front desk employee was a slightly "out of it, so we weren't exactly optimistic about the hotel as a whole.

The Crown City Inn in Coronado has to be one of the best kept secrets in town! We stayed there for four nights and loved it. It's an older property, but has been updated and freshly painted. It was spotlessly clean and though not right on the beach, anything in Coronado is within walking distance. There is a cute little... More

Spent 4 days at the Crown City Inn. What a wonderful and cute establishment. The employees are absolutely wonderful. Our room was great and everything was noticeably upgraded and freshly painted. A cute restaurant (Bistro) is right next to the Lobby and the food was fantastic with reasonable prices. From the time we arrived until we departed......the accommodations were more... More

A very clean and friendly place to stay. Nice amenities. Close enough to walk to the ferry and also to the beach. A bit of a hike to the beach with my metal detecting equipment, but good exercise. They have a nice small pool and bicycles to loan to patrons. Very nice and I will stay again.

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
