3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

I expect more from a Marriott. Beautiful location in Coronado, but needs a makeover.
The rooms smell like dirty, old carpeting. The furniture is dated and there is a counter in the room that kind of awkwardly cuts the room in half.
The glasses in the bathroom were obviously dirty.
All the employees are really nice and the location is wonderful.
Fix the place up Marriott!!!
The place is overpriced and they charge $22.00 for parking and $13.00 for internet.

We had a wonderful time at the Marriott Coronado! We got checked in promptly, and they put us in two adjoining and connected bedrooms. The rooms were spacious (2 double bed, a twin sleeper chair, a bar area, and a work desk) and faced the bay. The bathrooms were also large (almost as large as the room(!)).

We had a great deal which included free internet, free parking and $60 credit per night. We used the credit on room service (yummy breakfast with pancakes, huevos rancheros, waffles, fruits and more) and dinner at the restaurant facing the bay.

The location was very convenient. It was close to the ferry station, restaurants and shops. The grounds were very nicely kept with lots of green lawn, pools, and courtyards filled with birds and koi ponds. Note though this hotel is not adjacent to the Hotel Coronado, it only is a few miles away (aprox. 15 minutes by car).

The kids loved the pools, and the grandparents love walking along the bay, watching the ships sail by, and enjoying the cool crisp air.

All in all, it was a great hotel.

We stayed Oct. 20-27 and had a very positive experience. We stayed in a bayview room which was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The views across the bay to downtown San Diego are awesome. We spent more than a few occasions sitting out on our balcony watching the boats on the bay and people watching along the popular waterfront boardwalk that passes in front of the property.
Staff at the hotel from the front desk. restaurant, lounge and housekeeping were all friendly and professional. The concierges gave us great help and tips on what to see in the area and how to get there.

The hotel water taxi only operates on weekends at this time of year but it was a nice convenience. The hotel is within walking distance to the ferry terminal and there is a bus stop in front of the main entrance. We were without a car and used all of these modes of transportation as well as taxis and had no trouble getting around on the island and in the city.

We found the island residents to be very friendly. We had strangers walking up to us to offer help on directions without us asking. The island itself is a scenic, peaceful respite. We are so glad we chose this over the noisy, bustling downtown hotel zone. (yes, we are well beyond the nightclubbing years).

One exception to the peace: the navy choppers flying regular exercises over the bay. They are noisy but impressive to watch along with all the navy ships in the area.

All in all we had a great time and would return to the Coronado Marriott in a flash.

excellent hotel with large rooms, good service, all what one could need while away from home, lovely pools and hot tub, pretty gardens with even flamingoes and ducks
quiet location with superb views across the bay to downtown, never closed my curtains at night...
yet just a few minutes walk and a ferry ride across from Convention Center and broadway, downtown
for me just perfect!

I stayed here for work for five days. They gave me a room overlooking the city right on the bay. Everything was great, the customer service, the room was beautiful. Even though I was right next to the boardwalk, it was still quiet for sleeping.
outstanding place! Stay here!

As part of our US visit in Sept 2010, we decided to visit San Diego. After much searching, we agreed to book the Coronado Marriott.

What a choice. The hotel is very nicely positioned next to the water and in a wonderful San Diego area, Coronado.

The staff were more than happy to help. I extensively dealt with the Concierge people and they were all wonderful.

Rooms we clean, we played tennis and basketball, parking was right under the hotel (although there is plenty of parking nearby on streets if do not wish to pay for it) and staff were more than pleasant to deal with.

Room service was also very good to the Marriott standards.

Cannot fault the Coronado. If I go back to San Diego again, Coronado Marriott will be my first choice.

For the second year in a row we had a small conference (<300 people) at this hotel. Unfortunately our success will force us to move to another location to accommodate more people next year; no one wants to leave Coronado or this hotel!
Rooms are always very nice, and despite the Navy helicopters flying the bay, very quiet. Our ground-floor room had a nice patio, and generally some visiting ducks every morning. Our group had catered breakfasts and lunches, and the food was excellent .
My wife really enjoyed the ferry to downtown Sane Diego each morning, and the chance to shop a do some sightseeing.
