The accommodations were comfortable with daily housekeeping. The office staff was very friendly and helpful withe finding things to do. My room was very nice and very clean. I would definitely stay again. Most important......it is within walking distance of all Coronado's shopping and beaches.

Cute little place with a fantastic location. Not a 5 star hotel but a great value compared to what you would pay for any other hotel in Coronado. Our room was clean but tiny, and did have everything we needed. The location could not be beat, only a couple of blocks from all the shops on Ferry Landing and the... More

Great room and staff. Great location! Front desk lady was so sweet and it was the quickest check in I've ever had. The room was very nice and clean and the bed was comfy. We were able to walk 8 beautiful walks to the beach and many restaurants and stores are even closer.

The Owners have a touch for style. This very clean, modern, quiet small property is a perfect for business or vacation get away. Stayed a couple of nights myself and will always look up this location when traveling in San Diego.

I had the same economy room #10 as previously reviewed, but my conclusion is different. Excellent value for money if don't mind a small room without a table, chair or a closet. Modern, clean, with TV, fridge, microwave, an iron and free wifi, and comfortable and quiet.

Cons: Understand that several things are under renovation such as fixing the light that stays on with the overhead fan. Watch the corners of the bed frames Location: Three blocks from the ferry to San Diego and... More
