Arrival date was nothing but pleasant, concierge explaining in detail their ammenities, location helping w/any needs I may have... More

Last year we stayed at the Del, no rooms available this year so we stayed here. It's right across the street from Del and offers probably 85% of what it does. Great beach atmosphere, location, service staff, breakfast included. We will return.

We have been to Coronado quite often, but never have stayed here. From now on we will always stay here! From the moment that we arrived early on a Friday morning, we were treated extremely well (A special shout out to Georgia at the Front Desk!) Somehow our room (in the Mansion) was ready for us after our red eye... More

This hotel gave me a bit of an island paradise feel which no other hotel in San Diego has provided (I have stayed in many hotels in San Diego). It is a truly beautiful setting and the breakfast is outstanding, mostly cold items though but very tasteful and good quality (i saw the exact same items at whole foods). With... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. We were originally booked at the Lowes but after we arrived and saw how far away it was from downtown, we decided to call Glorietta Bay Inn and we were lucky enough to get a great deal in one of the contemporary suites. We were in room 445 and although there... More

The customer service at this hotel is second to none! We were celebrating 35 years of marriage. Kelsey made sure it was perfect. She had a complimentary bottle of wine in our room upon arrival. She gave us a room with a view of the bay and offered to take our bags to our room. Check in time is 3:00... More

I teetered between an Average to Very Good rating for this hotel. The location is excellent but the accommodations are dated. This is definitely not a chain hotel. You are near the water, across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado, and are walking distance to shops and restaurants. This is a prime location and décor is fine or dated,... More

Every time we stay at the Glorietta Bay we come away feeling like we have just visited family who loves us. They have the best customer service in California! The Manager's presence is visible everywhere. You can tell she trains her staff well, gets to know her guests personally, and keeps an eye on every detail. Hope she is there... More

Beautiful view, room and service. Breakfast brought to our room so we could eat out on our patio. Cookies and milk brought to our room at bedtime:). Within walking distance to numerous restaurants, bike rental and the beach. Chairs, umbrellas and beach towels provided free. Loved our stay.

This hotel is clean, has lots of history and is close to shops, restaurants and the beach. The staff is super friendly and so helpful. The hotel even has beach chairs, pales and shovels for the kids that you can use at the beach. Wonderful stay and we will be back....
