Beautiful and comfortable, Spanish style boutique hotel. Close to restaurants and shopping. Lovely heated pool. Close to beach (use hotel chairs/umbrellas for free). Attentive and kind staff were greatly appreciated throughout our stay. Parking situation is only drawback. We were lucky to find something two blocks away for free all weekend. A bit noisy in the mornings. Quiet and sleepy town at night. No noisy bars. Comfy bed. Nice amenities. We will definitely book here again!

Hi Mia M. I love this review. Concise and to the point. You even threw in the drawback. We also offer reserved off-site guest parking for a nominal fee if someone doesn't want to search for parking. I apologize if that was not communicated to you at check in. I apologize for any excessive noise during your stay. We will see what changes can be made to minimize that issue. Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to having you back as our guest.

We had a wonderful room on the first floor. Loved being close to our family and friends. The amount of restaurants around this hotel was perfect. Look forward to coming back but the next time will ask for a room facing the ocean. Thank you for everything!

Hi Rasa B. It's always a good time when we have friends and family staying with us and having a good time. We do our best to provide the perfect atmosphere for gatherings. Just so that you're aware... we don't have any rooms with an actual ocean view, but a few of our rooms do face that direction. I just like for our guests to be informed. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. We look forward to having you back as our guest.

We absolutely loved the El Cordova Hotel! It was super clean and we loved having the kitchenette! We have a family of four and our kids slept great for 4 nights on the pull out couch. We slept very comfortably in the master suite as well. They have a clean pool and even a spa to relax in. On the chilly nights we hung by their fire place. The attached Mexican food restaurant has delicious food and a great happy hour with yummy margaritas! It’s a very short walk to the beach and even our young kids didn’t mind. The beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. Plenty of space to put up the umbrella and hang for the day. The hotel is in a perfect spot to walk to shops, breakfast, and dinner. The front desk and hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!

Hi Snickels. What do I have left to say? If this review doesn't peak the interest of a potential guest, than I don't know what will. It's always great to know that we are living up to our guest's expectations. You're not the first guests to tell us that our sofa beds are comfortable, which is such a relief to hear considering the reputation that sofa sleepers have in regard to comfort. Thank you so much for sharing your experience for others to read. We look forward to having you back as our guest.

Hotel was simple but nice and perfect for my wife and I to enjoy a great five days on beautiful Coronado. Room service is by request which was nice. E didn’t have to worry about being bothered in the morning.

Hi Andrew. Thank you so much for sharing your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Room service by request has been one of the ways that we were able to minimize guest contact at the height of the pandemic and give our guests a sense of comfort and security when they needed it most. Thank you again, and we look forward to having you back as our guest.
