My daughter and I stayed in the mansion this time and what a treat it was! Beautiful room, nightly turn down service with warm cookies and milk, breakfast brought up if you wish, morning newspaper, and just the nicest, most courteous staff! We loved coming back to the mansion after our long days at the beach or shopping or sampling... More

Helpful, courteous staff, and a good clean room with a very comfortable bed make this a great choice in one of the best locations on Coronado. It is located directly across the street from del Coronado and some rooms (including the room we ssh stayed in - room 2014) have nice views of Glorietta Bay. It easy walking to shops,... More

We were only staying one night in San Diego and stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn. We were lucky enough to upgrade to the Penthouse Suite which takes up the entire top floor with it's own two person lift! Fantastic room and good service. Go for an early morning walk along the beach to start your day.

We were here for 4 days for a wedding that actually occurred across the street at the Hotel Del Coronado-itself a glorious and beautiful place. GBI was beautiful. Very comfortable room with a good BR and shower. I was easy to get around. Staff was friendly and helpful. FREE breakfast, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, pancakes, toast, bagels, coffee, tea,...

My wife & I stayed here during our honeymoon. This place is fantastic. It has a great location, the rooms are very nice (we stayed in one of the mansion rooms), and the staff was extremely friendly. On our last day we decided to go to the beach, which is right across the street from the hotel. The staff provided... More

We arrived on Thursday, 10/25/14, around 1pm. The assistant manager, Mike, confirmed that our room was not ready. Mike went on to say he was "dialed" in to vacation time and we should get started & he would take care of the room. We changed clothes in lobby restrooms & headed over to Kruise King for bicycle rental. Later Mike... More

I would have given it 5 stars for the service and charm, but I know some people do not like older vintage places like this. Bathrooms are generally small and décor from back in time. I however, love it! We had a huge group stay here for our daughters wedding in Coronado. The hotel was close to the church and... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is the only thing that's great about this place. I really don't understand the high reviews it has received. It's very on par with a basic Best Western or Holiday Inn hotel. When we checked in, they told me if you don't find any parking at... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in October 2014 - in a junior suite. The positives: suite was a good size with two bathrooms, great location on the main street of Coronado, very attentive staff at the front desk, has a timeless/yesteryear feel to the place. The cons: the property is getting dated - our room was clean however there... More
