4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is very much worth a visit and a stay. It has maintained its classic nature, even down to the old cage elevator with an elevator operator. The lobby is quite interesting, and many rooms have balconies and ocean views. As one would expect from an old building, there are some creaks and groans, but that is part of... More

Stayed for 5 nights in a junior suite. Room was very spacious with 2 bathrooms and I had a good conference rate. No view at all but I knew that ahead of time (for our room type). Housekeeping was very efficient and good and I do have to say that every staff member/housekeeper we saw in the hallway of the... More

The front desk is understaffed. They try to be nice, however, it does not compensate for all the wasted time. My room was dirty when I arrived. Pretty disgusting. OK, after I called someone came and cleaned it. ... and how much did I pay for this experience? Really? This place is old. Everything is creeky, not just the beds.... More

My husband and I arrived at 1:00, after an early morning flight from the east coast. Rather than making us wait for the 4:00 check in, we were offered to upgrade our room to a Jr. Suite for a nominal fee and then a clean one was found for us so that we didn't have to wait. We were able... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel del Coronado for 4 nights in February 2015. We didn’t get a chance to explore the main building (we stayed in a very nice room in the Oceans Tower building) but everything about our trip was perfect! I spent most of my time at the hotel’s private beach which is absolutely beautiful. There... More

We never left the resort during our three-night stay, enjoying the pool, spa services massages, dining, many... More

Booked here for 7 nights, and I am thoroughly disappointed with my stay. The room I was given is just awful. Forget the water, I am unable to see the street, the trees, or even the sky. This room could have no windows and I wouldn't notice any difference. Couple phone calls to the front desk and absolutely no care... More

The good: You can't beat the location. The view is amazing and the sunset is gorgeous.The staff is very courteous and helpful. The restaurants have great food and beautiful views of the ocean. The bad: The walls are paper thin, you can clearly hear other's conversations through the wall. The mattress is hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. The bathroom... More

We loved our time at the Hotel Del Coronado. The historic hotel is in great shape and the staff is friendly. We enjoyed the beach and pool. Coronado is a cute town with some fun shops that are within walking distance of the hotel.
