“Inn was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2006

I can't say that I would stay there again. For the price I paid, I could have stayed at a motel and been happier saving money. The room was clean and we received an upgrade to a deluxe room. We were happy until we got in the room and realized it still wasn't up to our standards. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the inn as long as you know what you are getting when you reserve a room. There was only about 8 parking spaces but since we always managed to park fine, I have no complaints. The breakfast there was good. We ate there on Easter Sunday and free champagne came with your meal. Although on the expensive side, $55 for four people, it was convenient. I would not stay there again for the price I paid, it was average of $110 per night and we stayed 2 nights.

First, be aware that parking is at a premium. If you intend to return to your room later in the evening, there is a very good chance you will have to park on the street or an off-site lot.

Our room faced Orange Avenue and we had the glare of the street light outside our room and traffic noise the entire night. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't something one would desire either.

The bathroom is quite likely the smallest I have ever been in, outside of an airplane. The shower is tiny(no tub).

We were told by others that the breakfast is fantastic, but we left too early to ever know.

I suspect that the majority of users of this establishment are couples who have one partner serving on one of the military bases of the island. I really could not see staying here for an extended stay. Given the wide disparity in lodging costs on the Island, I can see how many would opt for this place.

Stayed for 5 day and found that the management was very friendly and helpful. This is a nice, quite little motel. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. They even have free bikes. I will stay here again. A lot better than the much bigger, newer and more expensive hotel a few blocks away.

My family has stayed at the Crown City Inn on several occasions. We have always found the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms while not large have always been clean and neat. There are fresh baked cookies available in the afternoon. The best thing for us is the location Coronado which has great beaches (no crowds) quaint shops and cafes.
The couple of bothersome things are parking (hard to find spot late) and you do get some traffic noise off Orange Ave. We will once again be staying there later this year.
