“Lovely place with the most superb staff and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Stayed 2 nights for pleasure. Upon arrival, the staff was kind enough to change our room so it would be better for 2 adults, one who had trouble navigating stairs. Rooms were well kept, comfortable, and clean, the grounds are nice, the afternoon punch and cookies a treat. It was nice to have coffee and tea round the clock. The morning breakfast had a good variety and was long enough to enjoy it leisurely. I enjoyed eating out on the patio. Free newspapers in the morning. The location was handy to everything we wanted to do. Can't recommend it high enough and will stay here again. Delightful.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the bay may be a bit louder since they have a road so request an inner courtyard r...

We are recent retirees and have been staying at the Glorietta Bay Inn for 13 years. Our last stay was December 2012. It is superb. The staff are so good, they could teach customer service to the Ritz Carlton staff. The room and maintenance staff are equally friendly and helpful. We have stayed in many rooms. We like the Garden Room in the mansion and 336 in the other rooms. The latter has a cute private table outside the door and is quiet. We have stayed in the Library Room, but it is close to the staff morning breakfast set-up and tends to be noisy in the early morning. The proximity to the Del Coronado across the street is perfect because one has full access to the facility and beach without all the crowds, especially at Christmas. A very nice place, one of the best in America.

We have been staying at the Glorietta Bay for almost 15 years now. It is definitely one of my families favorite traditions. Upon arrival we are always greeted by familiar faces - the staff turnover is extremely low. Everyone is naturally friendly, and will do whatever is necessary to make your stay completely wonderful. The grounds are immaculate, fresh roses around the outdoor dining area make it a lovely setting for annual pictures. Breakfast is complimentary -so many wonderful choices for the entire family -the muffins and granola are our favorites - it is an added bonus to staying at such a beautiful boutique hotel. Our children like to play board games and read in the parlor - a most exquisite "living room" that has a player piano, library and many games. if you get a chance, and are planning a trip with your sweetie, be sure to book a room in the mansion part of the hotel. All are decorated differently, all with old world charm. My husband had a room here last month and we both did not want to leave. Fresh baked cookies and milk are delivered to your room nightly at turn down. Scrumptious!
The location is beyond prime. The beach is literally right across the street. All in all, our summers wouldn't be the same without Glorietta Bay. I can never see going to another hotel on the island! Book a room as soon as possible....... it will soon be one of your family's traditions as well!!!

Room Tip: One bedroom suites are great for families. Some have a full kitchen and all have a pullout sleeper s...

This trip was a mother/daughter getaway in celebration of my daughter's 50th birthday. My husband and I had stayed here three times in years past, and I was concerned the hotel might have changed since our last visit six years ago. To my delight, it is just as lovely today and the service just as fabulous as before. Every member of the staff is friendly, knowledgeable considerate, and graciously helpful. The complimentory breakfast served in the music room or outside on the veranda has everything an active visitor could want. Mid afternoon lemonade and gingersnaps are available, and evenings, chocolate chip cookies, hot from the oven, are delivered to our door(also chocolates) and iced milk is set out on the landing. Beach chairs and towels are also complimentary. Mansion beds are soooo comfortable. The swim pool and spa are small for a hotel this size, but that is the worst thing I can say. The location of the hotel is excellent. My daughter is planning to come back with her husband next year. Nancy Watkins

Room Tip: There are only two mansion rooms with two queen beds. The others have a king plus a sofa bed. Some...

In late April, early May we took some time out of a hectic schedule, used up some frequent flyer miles, and headed to San Diego. Our selection of the Glorietta Bay Inn was based on a personal recommendation by one of my wife's coworkers and confirmed by some of the other comments posted here at tripadvisor. After check-in we took the front-desk's advise and found several good restaurants within walking distance. Shopping also. Having breakfast delivered to the room was a nice touch. We did some of the tourist-ie things for which San Diego is famous: the zoo, the wildlife park, the original Sea World (although it has become somewhat tired and hasn't kept up with its Orlando off-shoot) and the waterfront shopping area on the San Diego side of the bay. Towards the end of our stay we did a dinner and the nearby yacht club restaurant and I enjoyed the best steak ever, something called a baseball cut. The waitress recommended it be butterflied and that made it perfect. On another trip to that area we'd stay again at the Glorietta Bay Inn. There was an in-room safe that we didn't use because it seemed not to be securely fastened to the piece of furniture in which it was housed. That didn't seem too safe!

Room Tip: We had a room which had a seperate sitting room with it's own TV which was nice for the insomnia...

Our stay at Glorietta Bay was perfect! At check in we were upgraded to a room that had a small patio. The room was well appointed and much bigger than our room at the W in downtown San Diego. The location is perfect--your are right across the street from the Hotel Del and within walking distance to great restaurants and shops on Orange Avenue. We enjoyed walking the grounds of the Hotel Del as well as beach access for our morning walk. The breakfast was more than ample and they had indoor and outdoor seating. The pool looked great but our time was filled enjoying other sites that San Diego/Coronado have to offer. The staff was also very accomdating. Great stay!

Glorietta Bay is the best location in Coronado and the breakfast can not be beat. The location is perfect to walk to restaurants and the beach. The staff was very helpful. Our room was spacious with a refrigerator and we had a small patio which made coffee in the morning a delight. Having a breakfast included in your stay is always such a bonus especially when traveling with a family!
