“Feels like a resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I really enjoyed this property. It was very neat, clean, and accommodating. It has spacious rooms, a lot of space by the pools, it never got crowded. One thing I was not crazy about was the location. It is located far from the city.

We visited Loews Coronado Bay Resort over the long Thanksgiving weekend and had a beautiful, spacious and spotlessly clean room with a very comfy bed. The resort was decorated for the holidays so it was lovely and festive, and the staff were all friendly, considerate and helpful.

We enjoyed their signature restaurant for the ambiance and convenience, but the service was slow and food was only so-so. But we were tired and hungry and wanted a few glasses of wine (and not have to drive) so it was good for that. It was overpriced, so we kind of expected that.

The best feature was the price of the rooms. It was really quite cheap for a resort quality room. Maybe that's because it's so far off the beaten path.

That's the biggest (and perhaps the only) drawback to this resort -- its location. It is soooo far down the strand that you don't feel like you're in San Diego or Coronado... Just somewhere along the bay. That may not matter to some people, but we will spend a little more and stay at the Marriott next time.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Bay View room. They all come with balconys, so you might as well use it!

I have the worst luck with San Diego weather - the marine layer always seems to show up at the same time I do - but this hotel's location made up for that. Views of the water from everywhere. Was here for a business meeting, and so didn't get to enjoy all the amenities, but the room was very comfortable and staff very accommodating.

I found this hotel through a Sunset magazine article about dog friendly hotels. Some dog friendly hotels "tolerate" dogs. Loews Coronado treats dogs as a guest! Checking in was a breeze. Staff were friendly the moment we walked in. They have treats for the dog. They provided us with dog bowls and a mat. I like that the hotel is away from downtown. It's quieter. The bathrooms need some updating. The shower is too small and the tiles need to replaced. The doorknob is broken. We had dinner at Mistral's and I like the small portions as I can try a lot of the dishes and they are all excellent, except for the ny steak. Overall, the staff (check-in, housekeeping, security, spa, restaurant) were very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a marina or bay view room

It was -16 with snow on the ground and broken pipes-- we still went on vacation to Coronado and are so glad we did . The Loews experience was fabulous all the way around -- beautiful location-some of the friendliest staff you will ever meet and fine food. If you like to exercise they have a nice fitness area and the pools are special. We like the location, close to San Diego and yet out of the hectic scene when you want some peace and quiet.

Room Tip: The 3 rd floor in building 5 provides a great view of the area and bay.

We came upon this property by chance on Dec 23rd and rapidly switched our stay from another nearby hotel where we would have spent a disappointing Christmas, at best, with our doggies/children. We were welcomed with open arms by Robert Spicer, Guest Services pro par excellence.
Our room in Building 4 had a perfect view of the bay, and easy access to the outside where there were two grassy pet exercise areas, all clean and landscaped.

Our puppies were also treated like royalty, receiving bowls and treats upon arrival. We tired them out every day in the neighboring dog park (Coronado Cays). What a find: and no sand to clean off them! "Tired dogs are good dogs" as the saying goes...

We are part time travel agents and travel the world. We are Marriott Elite Members, and have also stayed at The Del (ugh- the crowds!), but this is the best, most scenic, most relaxing and most welcoming property in the area.

No property is perfect, and especially in this expensive area you need to pay a lot. Granted, some rooms need a bit of upgrading. However, Loews consistently delivers great value and service, and for pet lovers, no compromise. Coronado is no exception.

Keep it up, Loews!

We stayed at Loews over Christmas and a few days after. The first thing we noticed was how friendly and accommodating the staff was. We had to wait a few minutes in line when we checked in, but other than that, no complaints.
For a pet friendly hotel (and they do mean friendly) there wasn't the usual smell that we've experienced at other pet friendly hotels.
Our room was very nice and comfortable. We didn't dine on the premises because we were visiting our son and daughter-in-law who live a short distance from Loews.
I would recommend this to others and will stay here again.
