Upon check in, I was assigned a room on the first floor; when I mentioned I was uncomfortable being on the first floor, I was immediately assigned a 2nd floor room, away from Orange Ave. It was so wonderful to be able to leave the windows open to the ocean breezes all day and nite. The one bedroom unit was spacious, immaculate, well stocked, and the service was superb. Anything I needed, was quickly attended to. I had trouble figuring out the DVD players and staff immediately came to the room to show me how to use them.
I did not rent a car while I was here, and walked a lot....if you take a beach walk around 8 am, near the high rises, you may see the Navy Seals working out...worth the early walk, as well as the solitude of so few people on the beach at that hour. The resort also provides "beach crusier" bikes,but I did not use them.
Easy to get to San Diego for sightseeing by either doing the "hop on hop off trolley" which picks up near the hotel, or take the foot ferry, an easy 2 miles walk or there is bus service to the ferry. The town is very clean, and charming and consists primarily of independent merchants who were all very friendly...very few chain stores....also about 6 blocks to a grocery store. Walks in the residential areas are beautiful as well, most everybody has lovely flower gardens. I highly recommend the historical tour that departs from the beautiful and historical Glorietta next door....the tour guide was fabulous and shared a lot of the history of Coronado as well as information about the Hotel Del Coronado.
Although there is no pool, you can take the shuttle to Loews, but must reserve in advance, it fills quickly. I did that one day and enjoyed a fabulous lunch and an afternoon on a louge chair at the pool. But after going there, and also touring the Del Coronado, it was nice to get back to the peaceful Coronado Beach Resort, and stop by and say hello to Cody in the lobby. He just says hello, never goodbye, and I was sad to have to say goodbye to him.
