This little charming cottage getaway is the perfect, affordable place to stay. It is tucked in between housing on the main street into Coronado. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and they provide all the amenities; such as refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. They also provided special towels for us to use at the beach. It is just... More

This is a gem in Coronado. It's located in the main street, clean and updated rooms. Very nice manager that's easy to reach with friendly staff. It is a limited hotel, but in Coronado you don't need restaurants in site, since all of them are walking distance. Also the beach and ferry landing to go downtown San Diego

This is a small about 12 room motel on the main street on Coronado.

Motel is clean and more than adequate. We stumbled upon this motel about 3 months ago when visiting... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very good price for this island destination. I got one of the smaller rooms and it was bigger than I expected. The bed was excellent and was the most comfortable bed I have slept on in years. The rooms are no frills and a bit worn, but I rather have no frills rooms than... More

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.
