Stayed three nights in late September. This is a very well maintained older property. Received an "escape" rate which included free parking. This escape package makes the property a good value. At a standard rack rate it is overpriced. The rooms were quite comfortable. Second floor rooms are up about 12 stairs with no elevator. No one seemed available to... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with the Coronado Escape Package. Like you stated, it's a great value which includes 3 room nights, 3 nights of parking, and wine. Once you're at the hotel, you can leave your car parked and walk to the shops and restaurants in Coronado. We apologize that... More

I was excited to see the "historic package" advertised on their site. When I called the young lady said they could give me that deal, but that a manager would have to work out the pricing and call me back. Nobody called. I called them again the next day, and was assured I would get the deal and the room... More

We spent 5 nights recently at this hotel and had a great stay. The staff is very accomodating, our room was a good size, well appointed and immaculate. The breakfast buffett each morning was sufficient if a bit basic - cereals, muffins, bagels, pancakes, juices, coffee, etc... There is a seating area both outside and inside the hotel and the...

Loved staying here and the location to the beach. Very nice and helpful staff. Booked an room with a balcony and loved that we could sit out there and see the bay. Wished we had views of the ocean. Loved being able to walk everywhere. Only down part of the pool was very small and a lot of guests would... More

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.

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
