San Diego was the first stop for us on our honeymoon at the end of October. We were greeted with a warm reception by Billy ( I think that was his name, he was from Chicago). He was very helpful with ideas for things to do in the area and gave a quick run down on the property. We stayed in building 5. Our room had a bay view and was very quiet. We never heard noise from the military base, the bay or other rooms. Our room was very clean, nicely appointed. The property is about a 10 min drive from the center of Coronado island but we didn't feel like this was a problem. We could easily access shops, restaurants and the ferry to downtown San Diego. Loews Coronado does not charge resort fees but they will charge for self parking, $25/day. I can't comment on the restaurant or cafe because we only bought a couple of bottles of water. If we ever visit San Diego in the future we would definitely consider staying at the Loews.
