Have stayed here many times and love it. The rooms have been redone and they are lovely. Very clean and the staff is wonderful. They serve a nice breakfast in the morning, fresh fruit, toast, danishes, oatmeal, etc. Love sitting on the patio overlooking Glorietta Bay while sipping my coffee. It's quite nice. Also, they have lemonade and ginger snaps... More

This past week, a friend and I enjoyed four nights at the Glorietta Bay Inn (known as the GBI) while visiting San Diego and Coronado. The main structure, formerly the Spreckels mansion, was beautiful. That graceful, historic building now houses the inn's lobby, dining and sitting areas, and some very special, B&B-style rooms on the upper floors. I loved the... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the best part was sitting on the patio overlooking the bay. The location was great with a short walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. Thanks for providing restaurant recommendations and help with other questions about the area. We... More

I was very excited about staying here because of all the awesome reviews. We got a Bay View Modern room which turned out to be mostly a view of a street, a Volkswagon Van and a rooftop. The room smelled very odd. I am not sure of what, maybe bug spray? It was an overwhelming chemical/citrus smell. We had TONS... More

We were so impressed with this hotel! The service was above & beyond. The entire staff was incredible & in particular John. We were staying here for our anniversary. John made sure everything was nothing short of perfection. I have stayed at many nice places but never experienced better customer service than I did here. The location is perfection. You... More

We were in town for a wedding across the street. It makes a wonderful first impression with beautiful grounds, and the concierges are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are on the small side, but clean and comfortable and well equipped. The breakfasts were excellent and I never left the table hungry. The hotel offers beach chairs and other... More

Lovely room, nice view of the bay, patio was perfect for afternoon lounging. Just a great low key place to let the air out of one's tires. Great staff, milk and cookies at bed time was perfect. Large bath, with jacuzzi tub, walk in shower

This is a small boutique hotel in a terrific location. It is directly across from The famous Hotel Del Coronado,, close by to restaurants and shopping. We just had our third visit there. The breakfasts are charming served in beautiful surroundings. Staff is A+ in doing their best to accommodate you needs. The bay rooms have a view of the... More

If you're looking for a huge resort, you can go across the street, but this beautiful inn was once a grand 'ole home in its own regard, and they have done a beautiful job with the place. The original home is stately and elegant, the staff was courteous, responsive, and over the top with their attention to detail. I stayed... More

Best thing about this place is the staff. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The place feels very homey and they treat you like you are at home. Breakfast is very good. The mansion is beautiful and full of character however it has not been well maintained. The lobby and the beautiful music room can definitely use some repair work.... More
