Our family spent one night at this property because we wanted to explore Coronado. I originally was looking to stay at the famous Hotel Del Coronado, but the price was ridiculously high. A friend suggested Glorietta Bay, and we enjoyed it! It is right across the street from Hotel Del, and the beach is public, so just walk across the... More

The Glorietta was a very pleasant surprise. From the moment we arrived it felt special. All the staff were friendly and proffessional!The room was spacious. We were not in the main bldg, but the grounds made me feel like I stepped back in time with lovely trellises and landscaped walkways. The continental breakfast served in the mansion was a cut...

We really enjoyed our stay at this gracious property. Highlights included the beautifully landscaped and well-maintained grounds, an abundant continental breakfast, including fresh fruit and excellent coffee, and a delightful 84 degree pool, which we swam in each day. The Inn is located just across the street from the Del and beachfront, and convenient to the shopping and restaurants along... More

Hotel has charm and charming staff. The room was comfortable and clean. Comfy bed and linen. Continental breakfast was abundant and had delicious choices. We were unable to enjoy the pool and hot tub due to bad weather but they looked inviting. Location was excellent for many tasty restaurants and shopping all within easy walking.

This inn is located at the foot of Orange Avenue in the heart of Coronado Island. Everything is within easy walking distance. The main structure is the early 19th century home of a sugar baron's son, and features public rooms that bring you back to the era of opulence and fabulous wealth. The lobby and adjoining music room make you... More

Our car club about 46 members spent 3 nights. The hotel is beautiful. We had our own special parking for our special cars. The staff were over the top friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and lots of room. I would definitely go back.

Awesome hospitality, great place to stay just next to the famous Coronado Hotel. Something between luxury motel and five star+ hotel. The place is a combination of an old mansion and modern rooms (where we have been) and offers things like very well equipped rooms with usb chargers/cofee machines, excellent complimentary "continental" breakfast , afternon tea/ coffee and cookies just...

Spent 4 nights at the Glorietta. Great location and value. Much less expensive than its neighbor hotel to the west. Staff friendly and helpful. Stayed in Lillie's room. Comfortable and large with separate sitting area. Hotel needs small sundry/gift shop to be complete...wine/snacks etc. especially with no on site food after breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

We couldn't say how wonderful our stay was. 39 years ago we were married in Coronado and returned to remember our wedding day.From the front desk, to Raj our reservation manager, Claudia the manager and all those behind the scene to the continental breakfast all within a block of the ocean across the street from the Hotel Del. Absolutely awesome.
