We stayed here while in Coronado overnight for a funeral. It was nice and comfortable, and clean. The restaurant was very good and the service was excellent. We had dinner in town the night before since we had to be at the funeral early. We were not there long enough to say any thing else.

What a wonderful, hidden gem. Staff extremely friendly and location is outstanding. We loved the bikes and path around the "island". Walking anywhere from the Crown is easy too . We didnt try the restaurant but it seemed to always be busy. I needed a stamp to mail a letter one of the days and the front desk gave me... More

Loved The Crown City Inn from the moment we arrived. Room clean and roomy and the ideal place to spend some time in a quiet smaller hotel in beautiful Coronado. Close to all attractions on the Island and with a car you are within almost any attraction around San Diego within 20 to 30 minutes We just loved the place.... More

Considering it was Comic Con weekend and it's on beautiful Coronado Island, the Crown City Inn gave us a great rate for a great place. It is a very well cared for hotel, almost felt like staying at a relatives home instead of a hotel. Everything is within walking distance, including the beach. Loved this place, we look forward to...

We love to stay here because it is walking distance to restaurants and shops and a short drive to the dog beach! Prices are reasonable compared to other Coronado hotels. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Front desk staff is helpful. Pool is small and we have not used it. So nice to stay in Coronado rather than busy... More

This was one of several stops in Southern California for us. We decided to forgo the large resort and split the family in two rooms very reasonably priced here. Best decision. It was very comfortable, well appointed, updated bathroom, very charming, and we felt it has the character of the island. The location is not perfect if you want to... More

Stayed a couple of nights and was very happy with this place. Great value on Coronado. It's a hike to the beach but they have free bikes to use and the bus stops right in front. It's very clean and well kept. Nice updated bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only negatives are a small pool and thin walls.

Thanks for taking time to review us. I'm so glad you were happy with us. Yes, our pool is definitely small--most want to go to the beach, so it usually accommodates for cooling off, or letting the kids have fun for a while! We hope to see you again sometime soon! More

Loved this wee motel. Nice quiet comfortable room. Close to all amenities. Free coffee and water. Room spotless and food in the wee bistro next door is delicious. If back in Coronado would def stay here. Very reasonably priced for California. Great start to a wonderful west coast holiday

Hi lewis107: Thanks for the comments about your stay. You summed us up pretty well I think. So glad we kept you happy, especially if you were travelling from the East Coast--Most I think go to Florida so I'm happy you came to California! Hopefully you'll come back and stay another time! More

A small hotel With a lot of charm. Rooms aren't huge but very comfortable. Wide screen t.v's and excellent WiFi. You can walk or ride a bike from the central location to most points of interest on the island. Bikes are furnished and the hotel is "Pet Friendly". The host's are friendly and can provide many suggestions for your stay.... More

Nice hospitality from the woman who checked us in, the man the next day was not engaging. The rooms were comfortable, I appreciated having make up remover wipes in the bathroom. The bistro was slightly pricy but again isn't everything more expensive on an island? The BEST was having bicycles to explore the area.

Hi CariL44--Thanks for staying with us and thanks for reviewing. I'm sorry our "man" was not "engaging." We have several working here, and usually get such wonderful comments on all of them. I will be certain to make sure all are reminded to continue the friendliness that our customers are used to, and I appreciate the feedback. So glad you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Coronado, CA, just across the San Diego/Coronado Bay Bridge from downtown San Diego. Crown City Inn is your affordable choice to stay close to the beach. We have a swimming pool, beach cruiser bicycles, and surf/boogie boards to borrow to play in the water. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. On-site Crown Bistro is a favorite with the locals and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service daily. Kids and pets are welcome. Both receive a goody bag at check-in. Don't miss our afternoon "tea" with homemade almond shortbread, oatmeal-cranberry cookies, thumbprint cookies and brownies; and coffee and iced tea bar. ... more   less
