Coronado is an amazing place and Glorietta Bay Inn is an amazing hotel! We really enjoyed our stay. Our check in was smooth and we were offered ginger snaps and lemonade as they organized our details and got our keys ready. The grounds are beautiful. There's lush lanscaping and even huge tropical trees towering over the secluded courtyards. The location of the hotel is convenient to everything. It's a short walk across the street to the beach. It's also directly across from the Hotel Del Coronado, which is rich with history and worth a visit as well. We opted for the junior suite and we were presently suprised by how huge it was. Our room, in reality was a one bedroom apartment. There were two bathrooms, a huge living area with a pull out couch and a small kitchenette. It was really impressive. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was always courteous and helpful. They even provide beach toys and chairs to their guests! I would return here in a heartbeat! This place totally deserves it's TA certificate if excellence.
