Lovely hotel stay. Near the beach. Nice little courtyard area with outdoor fireplace and pool with hot tub. The room greatly exceeded our expectations with a full kitchenette and dining table and beautiful large bathroom with shower and separate bathtub. Everything was clean and the bed was comfy. Service was great and attentive if needed. Great location for the beach and downtown restaurants and shops.

Hi Patricia R. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience for others to read. We are very excited to hear that we were able to be here for your husband's bday celebration and to provide a little respite from the craziness that has become everyday life. Slowly but surely, things are starting return to normal here on Coronado, so the next time you visit us, you'll be able to do a little bit more. But you don't have to if you don't want to =). Thank you again for the great review, and we look forward to having you back as our guest.
