Clean, cozy hotel with new furniture and fixtures. Staff was excellent and accommodating. Very close to beach, bay, restaurants and shopping. Would recommend this to anyone visiting the San Diego or Coronado areas.

We went on a low budget to Coronado, saw the word Motel...should be named Inn or Resort... Not Motel. 10 rooms or so, our room was the standard with one bed, had a extra space with two seats, we had breakfast there, with mini fridge and micro, they offer instant coffee envelopes and tea. Also in our bed a welcome... More

My wife and I wanted something different on our visit to Coronado... something that makes you feel like you are on a small beautiful Island... We initially were staying 2 nights & ended staying an extra night... we got a great deal compared with The rest of Coronado... The place is small and familly owned & operated... Quaint and close...

I stayed here last week. This is an excellent option for staying in Coronado and at an affordable price. The rooms have been recently re-done and remodeled. Customer service was super friendly and accommodating, rooms clean as well. Its super well situated on the main avenue of coronado, close to the beach and restaurants. It was a great experience overall.... More

This motel is very reminds me of my home. Overall I feel pretty good about this place. Except the plumbing, every time i used the restroom you had to plunge it. If that was improved I would give this place five stars.

Incredible value for Coronado. We had no issues that other reviewers have reported. Our room was clean. Furnishings were basic and bathroom was tiny but it was all functional. We had a parking spot right out front (back in for easier exit onto Orange Ave when it's busy). The lady who manages the motel is sweet and handled our checkin... More

80.00 a night, around the Coronado area I would say that's not too bad if you're just looking for a place that's not too expensive, too fancy, or just a room at a decent price. It's a cottage style motel ran by an older woman, but it's nicely kept. The room I had was decently sized, plenty of parking was... More

Excellent Price for Coronado. Within walking distance to great restaurants and the waterfront. The room furniture and walls seemed super cheap and overused. The overhead lighting was poor/unflattering and the AC was so loud we couldn't bare to spend much time in the room besides sleeping. The shower area and toilet were fine. The courtyard is cute. My husband said... More
