We've been staying at Glorietta Bay Inn for at least 12 years during the Memorial Day weekend. It is our favorite place to stay. It's across the street from the beach and more affordable than the historic Del for a family. It is a hospitable inn with a complementary breakfast, afternoon cookies, fruit and lemonade. It is clean, well appointed... More

The staff at the Glorietta are wonderful. It was my birthday and they not only wished me a happy birthday when we arrived, a bottle of wine and two wine glasses were waiting in our room with a special note from the hotel.

We've stayed at this lovely Inn many times over the years and it is the best place to stay. The staff is incredible, the accommodations are outstanding and the breakfast is by far the best we've seen in our travels. This Inn is just steps away from one incredible beach and many quaint shops. I highly recommend this Inn to... More

Regular readers of our reviews will know that we are quite fond of the Glorietta Bay Inn on Coronado having stayed there several times. Last week was a return visit with some friends from Scotland on their first trip to the San Diego area. We had reserved two rooms and were given the keys to Rooms 112 & 113 which... More

Coronado Island in San Diego is our favorite place to visit and stay when we are anywhere near San Diego, Calif. The island itself sits between the Ocean and Bay offering a wonderful temperature with lots of fresh air. The Glorietta Bay Inn, past home of Sprekles who built the Del Coronado and other things in San Diego, provides great... More

Suites are great. Clean. Good location. Ridiculous that they have their contracted gardener come on Saturday morning at 8. It was really loud. Managment 101...do these disturbing things on Tuesday or Wednesday when you have higher vacancy.

We stayed in a bay view king room. Room was clean and basic but nothing outstanding. Small balcony that overlooked parking lot with the bay across the way. However Orange ave. was right next door and made for a lot of noise, therefore I couldn't really enjoy the balcony. The bed really sucked as well and I'm not usually picky... More

We arrived in Coronado in the late morning and did not have a reservation. We decided to ask here. They had a room available for the evening but it was too early to check in. They agreed to call us when the room was ready and said we could park our car in their lot. They called around 12:30, just... More

We come here year after year to enjoy Coronado. It is far less expensive than the Hotel Del Coronado, and right across the street from it so you can take advantage of all of their amenities. The inn is charming, and the staff is wonderful. We love the elaborate continental breakfast and the kids love the pool. We always look... More

We had a beautiful room with terrace in the old mansion and really enjoyed it. The people on staff were all uniformly friendly, helpful and great. The grounds were beautiful. Our room was perfect, with a comfortable bed, lots of windows, and the best shower and tub we've encountered at a hotel. We had a huge patio or terrace outside... More
