A stay at the Glorietta Bay Inn is a step back in time as it is the former Spreckels Mansion. Mr. Spreckels once owned Coronado Island and supervised the building of the Hotel del Coronado across the street. We stayed in the Sugar Baron mansion room which was Mrs. Spreckels bedroom. It has a balcony and beautiful view of the... More

Can't beat the location right across the street from the Del. Staff extremely courteous. Being able to park the car and walk to the beach and restaurants=my idea of the perfect vacation. Pool just perfect for our 4 and 5 year old grandchildren. Free breakfast, wifi and bathrobes in rooms very nice. Have stayed at the Glorietta Bay many times... More

My room was 328, not the best location over viewing the parking lot in the back, but secure and close to shopping and food. My partner, who is disabled had a parking place right in front of the room at the handicap space which was very convenient. Some negatives - crying babies but management was cooperative with us. The room... More

It's nice, clean, good service, ok pools and jacuzzi that we enjoyed at night, good breakfast included that we always take on the outside table in the terrace.

My sister and I have stayed at the Del for 20 years, and finally were simply priced out. I did som homework, and called the GBI to make inquiries. Raj was extremely patient and kind and helpful with my questions. We ended up booing and staying. We did not stay in the Mansion rooms, preferring the space of the two... More

My family and I enjoyed our short stay at this hotel. We stayed in the mansion which I think made the stay even better. Since I didn't stay in the "contemporary rooms" I can't speak to their quality- and one bonus would be that more them seem to have patio areas available, but they just looked like any standard room...

Every August, my wife and I come to Coronado to celebrate my birthday. Every year we stay at Glorietta Bay Hotel, John D. Spreckles original mansion house. He built it in 1908 across the street from his Del Coronado hotel. It's been expanded but it's a nice piece of history and central to most of what Coronado has to offer.... More

This is the place! Perfect location...high-end accommodations. The room is quiet, the bed is comfortable, and they offer an outstanding continental breakfast!! The only thing missing is an early-evening wine tasting event. This historic hotel has a beautiful music room...perfectly suited for such an offering.

When researching hotels in and around San Diego, we wanted a beach and a pool as we had spent over a week travelling the PCH sightseeing in cities and towns. I was tempted to stay at the Del but at over $700 per night and an 8 night stay it seems fantastically expensive. The GBI was about half the cost... More

If you want to enjoy the Del, but not its prices, the Glorietta Bay is for you. It's right across the street from the Del, making it easily accessible to the wonderful shops and restaurants in Coronado. Pleasant afternoon tea available here, as well as a good continental breakfast.
