I always wanted to stay there, we finally were able to get a room. I was NOT disappointed. We stayed in the mansion. The room was large, well decorated, clean and just adorable. Loved the alcove with the makeup vanity. The bed was the best I have had in a long time. This is a really lovely well done boutique... More

We were at the end of our vacation, and I thought that perhaps Coronado would be a nice place to stay. We liked this hotel, but unfortunately couldn't love it, because the traffic noise was so loud in our room. We certainly could tell when the morning workers were on their way to the base. It was quite loud. Of... More

We took a break from our home in Scottsdale, AZ to visit Coronado for the sea and the laid-back attitudes. We've visited Downtown San Diego as well as La Jolla a number of times but this was our first Hotel stay on Coronado. The Staff are courteous, friendly and efficient as others have reported - it is much less formal... More

We recently planned a trip over Thanksgiving to be with family and booked 4 rooms at the Inn. Although unfamiliar with this property, we called and after talking with the front desk manager, we were confident enough to give it a try. From the moment we walked in to the lobby we were impressed with the friendliness of the staff.... More

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
