“Cherokee is Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2006

Cherokee Lodge is a perfect place to stay on an otherwise expensive island. The Ritz, it ain't, so if you expect some 5-star service and amenities, then look for The Dell (which I think isn't very great, and you can always just walk down to it anyway). Karen is the most excellent and loving hotel manager you could ever meet. This hotel has had love put into it, which is probably the highest compliment I can ever give. The room was clean and spacious, there was a fridge, satellite TV, and a pretty good view of the town. I don't think I could ask for a better experience and if I ever go back to San Diego, this will be my hotel of choice. Period.
Everything is literally 1 to 3 blocks from your front door!

We made a trip to California recently, more specifically to the Southern part.
Through a travel agent in the San Diego area, we learned of the Cherokee Lodge on Coronado Island. For a reasonable price, we found it to be a small, pleasant place where we could settle, then explore the area and beaches. It was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the area, nicely furnished and we could come and go as we pleased. It was obviously furnished and tended with care that created a "homelike" ambiance. We tend to prefer the simple life and would definitely return on our next visit to the other coast.

I have been a repeat guest of the Cherokee Lodge for a couple of years now. It is a charming home away from home atmosphere. It was clearly explained to me that it was a B&B without the breakfast. The lodge is located just a block away from downtown Coronado so anything you need is a skip away. I have also stayed in several rooms in the lodge and find each one very comfortable and lovely. While you may not always see a staff member at night or on weekends the manager is very accessible and responds immediately. Check in after hours and on weekends is explained in full detail and is very easy. Several of my friends have also stayed at the lodge and loves the privacy and lack of foot traffic and noise that is usually experienced at other lodgings. The manager could not be more helpful and making you feel welcomed from just making the reservation to accomodating every need as possible. This is a unique experience and well worth it. If you are in need of the usual big hotel stay then you shouldn't bother but if you want something different this is the place. The Cherokee Lodge is a unique and wonderful experience. I recommend it to all.

We stayed in September on our visit to Coronado. We arrived at night, but there is no staff at night. They leave your key out front in an enevelope. This is just a bed, not a bed and breakfast. No meals can be attained here. The rooms are small and you will have to go across the hall to go to the bathroom. You'll need to remember your key, unless you want people opening your bathroom. The bathroom is very cramped and the shower is smaller than a linen closet. Our room was two beds, but there is no AC and some rooms had the ceiling fans missing (mine). They do provide you with a small refrigerator and they have satallite tv with some channels. The rooms are extremely hot and the windows had holes in the screens. If you want maid service you must leave a sign on your door requesting it before 6:00am or you get no service. They have no service on the weekends. They have no maid staff on property. If you want to use the laundry room, also were the ice machine is, you have to use it before the maid comes in. Everything in the rooms is old and cramped and the beds were very uncomforatble. Just a very uncomfortable experience. The manager on property was very nice, but she couldn't help us. Especially when the power went out for a whole day. You have to call them by a cell phone and they will drive form their home to come back to the property. The property needs major TLC.
