This is a fantastic property with so much to offer: easy walk to the beach and they have towels and chairs for you to borrow, right across from the Hotel Del Coronado, walking distance to all the great shops, restaurants, and nightlife on Orange Avenue... I stayed here for four days with a friend celebrating our birthdays (and the manager had a bottle of wine waiting for us in our room as a celebratory welcome!) We had a great time. Our contemporary room was nicely decorated, with great little touches, such as a makeup mirror on the vanity so you could use it where you needed it, not attached to the wall. Breakfast was ah-mazing!!! So much variety and so many options, including soy milk for my dairy allergic friend. Sometimes continental breakfast means stale cornflakes and yesterday's doughnuts - not so at the GBI. Lemonade and cookies in the afternoon was a neat treat. My bed was fabulously comfy, which doesn't always happen. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, helpful, and made us feel truly welcome and valued as a guest. I will never stay anywhere else on Coronado, unless (heaven forbid), the GBI shuts down. Don't hesitate, book it and enjoy your stay at a glorious, intimate boutique hotel in a great location. If I could give it 6 stars, I would!
