I had a lovely stay at the Del the weekend of September 9th. My Victorian building room (3444) was cozy and elegant with a queen bed and a balcony overlooking the inner Victorian garden. I sat on the balcony drinking my morning coffee, reading and watching the comings and goings in the garden. My room was by the inner stairs... More

I really don't understand the negative reviews about the del. My wife and I both thought the hotel was beautiful and were very pleased with the hotel staff. Everyone seemed friendly and laid back. No uptightness like other nice hotels we've stayed at before. The room was clean and had ample space. It wasn't huge, but we knew that going... More

The Hotel Del Coronado is a poorly run place that lives on past glory, and sadly having stayed there for 4 nights, I would compare it with an average Holiday Inn at best (although the view was better). We talked about giving up on the place and going home several times. Here are a few pointers and some pictures that... More

Loved it...it is very "touristy" but that is a credit to the place itself - how many hotels get tourists? Food was good but not great. I had my best meal at the boat house across Orange Blvd on the waterfront. The entire Coronado area is beautiful. Honeymooned there this past May and couldn't have asked for a better time...We're...

It was the end of our southern california vacation and we thought we saved the best for last. It was our first stay there. I had booked 2 nights on-line at The Del. No problem. When I went to check-in, they had no record of my reservation or deposit. Luckily, I had brought along the computer paperwork. They did not... More

We stayed at the Hotel Del Coronado Sept 9-11, 2005. Before departing on our trip I read several of the previous reviews of the hotel here on trip advisor. Many of them made me nervous, but when we checked into the hotel my fears were gone. We arrived about 11am and left our bags with the bell desk. The front... More

I read all of the reviews both good and bad about this hotel before going. I stayed Sept 1st through Sept 5th over the busy Labor Day weekend. Yes, the hotel is old (I stayed in the Victorian part) and it was busy over the weekend but I have to say I enjoyed my time there. I went by myself... More

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? YES!!!! Our family usually stays at nice middle-of-the-road motel/hotels when on vacation so when we were in Coronado we had to try "The Del" for just one night. It was the most magical night we have ever had at a hotel!!! The service, room, food, location was perfect. I can't imagine not... More

Stayed at Hotel del Coronado August 9 and 10, 2005. The lobby and grounds are overrun with sightseers at this historic landmark hotel. The grounds lack full attention and imagination. For example, beneath our ocean front balcony were neglected geraniums set in dirt every three feet. The standard full ocean view room (in renovated area) was clean with a nice... More

I spent 2 days and 2 nights at the Hotel Del Coronado at the end of August 2005 which was my very first trip to the hotel. I was becoming afraid of what I might expect after reading what were some very unflattering reviews both on this website and others. Count me as one of those who had an extremely... More
