We just returned from a mothers day trip at the El Coronado Resort on 5/11/2015 Upon arrival we were greeted by Paula at the front desk to check in. She was friendly. She was having a small problem with the computer and checking us in. She explained that it was a new system which was resolved right away. The lobby... More

I went to this hotel with my friends. Immediately discriminated against because of age. We were 21+ and the lady said she could turn us down but wont (which she cant). Then gave us a rant about alcohol and being rowdy. She didnt give this rant to anyone else. When we got to the room, the air conditioning was broke... More

Great location right on the beach and nice balcony views. Close drive to the Wildwood boardwalk. Pleasant staff and the hotel and rooms were very clean and updated. We will be back-we had a wonderful experience here!

My husband, brother in law and myself stayed here for a little get away about 3 summer's ago. It was very family oriented, had movie night out by the pool, and was right on beach. We had a 2 bedroom ocean front suite. The room did smell a little moldy/musty but I'm sure that's from all the salt air. The... More

We spent a 3 nights here in late Sept 2014 in a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath unit. The location, pool and beach were great. I had brought food for breakfast in the kitchen. In retrospect, I should have brought lunch too, as there aren't a lot of quick options in the off-season. The room was a good size for us.... More

While searching the internet to show them the El Coronado, I came across this site (TripAdvisor). After reading a few reviews I decided that I would leave a review of my own. We enjoyed ourselves very much... More

We stayed here in June of 2014 before the start of their busy season. The room was a good size but needed alot of updating! The carpets were very dirty and need replaced as well as the furniture. There was leaking from the ceiling in the hallway going to the main lobby. It made it very dangerous to walk on... More

Hi, Pittsburggal: Our plumbing pipe wrapping on the 1st floor was trying for us too. This issue came to light after our season opening and, therefore, had to be addressed. So sorry it effected your stay with us. Please know that new carpeting for our entire hotel was approved as well as new kitchen backsplashes, unit artwork and new bedding... More
