“Great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I had a very similar experience to Sharon Z. The first room they gave us was next to Orange Ave. It had a lot of street noise from all the traffic. About half an hour after we checked in, I knew I was not happy with this room. I went down to the front desk and requested a new room. They gave us a room in the courtyard area which was very pretty and serene. We had an even better bay view than the first room did. Although the first room was larger, we were much happier in the quiet peaceful room. We could sit out on the balcony and enjoy the bay view. The rooms were done in grays which I did not particularly like but I guess it was suppose to be peaceful. I felt the rooms should have been decorated in a similar style to the original main building which was a beautiful early 1900's mansion. The location was very good as it was within walking distance to lots of good restaurants and right across the street from the Del Coronado. The staff was helpful and friendly.

My husband and I stayed here last month while visiting family. At first, we were very disappointed with our room. We couldn't sleep the first night with all the noise of cars and trucks since we were right next to the street. The next morning I went to the front desk and told them. They were wonderful. They showed me a few rooms to choose from, and we slept great the next two nights. The staff was wonderful, the breakfasts are amazing, beds are great and the location was perfect! Thank you Glorietta Bay Inn for making our stay so enjoyable!

Room Tip: Rooms near the street are noisy.

We had a standard king size room overlooking the marina - yes you do have to overlook the carpark in the foreground but its really not that bad!
It was a great room with all the amenities of a good, clean standard hotel room that is tastefully decorated - no flamboyant tropical print here!
beautiful breakfast room and perfect position near the amentities of Hotel del Corondado, the marina and Orange Ave.

We stayed in an upper floor suite with a bedroom and sofa sleeper. It was spacious--had two bathrooms, a balcony and some kitchen accommodations. No view of the bay, but we still enjoyed it. The location is close to the beach at the Del Coronado and many restaurants along Orange Avenue. Except when going into San Diego, we walked everywhere. The picturesque marina was a stroll away and we ambled through the surrounding quiet neighborhoods admiring the historic homes. We were in the area to visit San Diego State University which was about 20 minutes away when we drove there in mid-morning. The wifi was free and dependable. We've had better complimentary breakfasts but this one was fine.

We just got back from a 3 night vacation on Coronadoa and have only the best things to say about the hotel and staff. We arrived early in the morning (9:30) and our bay view room was not ready yet so they gave us a temporary room to use at no charge until it was ready. The staff is incredibly friendly, and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our room had a great veiw of the Glorietta Bay, and was just a short walk to the beach. We also had a late night flight when we left so they gave us an extended checkout as well. I would defintely stay here again. Only draw back was the nearby Naval Air Base. Sunday and Monday were quiet, but Tuesday they flew helicpopters over the beach all day long and well into the night on training missions (every 5 minutes another one buzzed overhead), so eventually it got pretty annoying. Wednesday was also pretty noisy on the beach as well from the helicopters, but not as bad as Tuesday.

Room Tip: Pay the few extra dollars for a bay view room, it is well worth it. The morning sunshine comes in o...

Glorietta Bay Inn is warm, inviting, serene, quiet, charming, and clean. The staff and management team exceeded my expectations for our 4 day get away. The morning breakfast was great and the presentation was wonderful. I intend to book another get a way there very soon. We walked to several shops and nearby restaurants which were locally owned and operated. We did not need a car to get around and had easy access to the Trolley and bus line to go to San Diego. The beach is across the road and it has easy access from the hotel. Highly recommend for family or couples or girlfriend get a ways!!

Room Tip: Bay View recommended
