“Character Hotel”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This hotel is in old town and has the look and character feeling of years past. It is very spread out, but once you are settled in, all is well. It was clean but lacked upgrading in some areas. A free breakfast is always appreciated, and the friendly staff at the restaurant made for an interesting visit. Picture of years past with a bit of history, gave opportunity for stories from the locals.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet area to get away fro restaurant and highway noise

Thanks you for staying with us, we really appreciate your business. I'm glad you like the history. I truly sorry our hotel museum was closed during your stay, for renovations. It's almost completed so maybe on your next visit, I'll give you a personal tour. See you then.

Front desk was polite. The hotel is divided in three sections wich was a little uncomfortable because you had to walk across the street to reach the lobby. From the moment I walk in, the first thing I noticed was that it did not have a chemical, stored old smell. The room was very clean it gave me a feeling of a five star hotel! Everything felt fancy :) the bed was comfortable and did not have your typical hotel comfort. The room had a couch wich seemed new with everything else. Clean work station, microwave and fridge. The best part was the complimentary breakfast the hotel offers. Breakfast is offered across the hotel in a dinner, wich the hotel provides with vouchers. Awesome breakfast! The voucher offers cold or hot breakfast, cold cones with cereal juice and hot breakfast offers two eggs any style, hash brown, toast, bacon or sausage! Unlimited coffee or tea... I would recommend this hotel for allll business travelers and or vacation stays.

We are glad you enjoyed your recent visit to our hotel. You had one of our many suites. We have 5 different kinds of suites. Maybe on your next visit ask the front desk at check in. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future.

A friendly and comfortable motel, conveniently close to the old downtown. A little worn, but a nice warm atmosphere. Beds and room comfortable, service helpful and prompt. Very nice to be in a hotel with character that's not an anonymous part of a big chain. Free breakfast was fine, not wonderful. A fast meal if you want to head out without delay to San Diego or Tucson.

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your review. The breakfast is a cooked to order breakfast. I'm sorry it was not to liking. Maybe next time maybe change the way we cook your eggs. We have nine different ways your eggs can be served.. Or our home made oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins is one of my favorites. See you next time you come to Yuma.

Never been a fan of the US motel style hotels but this was nice and clean and spead over a large area. A bit confusing as there are sites at both sides of the road. The room was fine and clean. Restaurant is down the street and excellent

Check in was slow and I was the only person in the lobby, check out was quick. The property is in an older part of Yuma. It is spread out across the street and such. You get a complimentary breakfast coupon for "The Landing" which I used. Breakfast was OK but it was free so to speak so no complaints. Back to the hotel, the exterior reminded me of the Bates Motel. This was just an observation and I don't mean to be negative. The room was spacious and there was a flat screen TV. The windows are very old and don't feel safe. Each room has a rod iron chair and table outside the front door which is a nice place to sit and mingle with other guests. The proximity to the road and bad windows contribute to the room being loud/noisy. Everything else about the motel not hotel was average. I am not sure about the area yet as there was a bum that walked by and a large intimidating man that appeared to have no purpose on the property that sort of sneaked up on me. This review comes across as negative but my stay was overall very pleasant. I would stay here again for $75 or less.

Room Tip: Can't think of any tips for this property.

We recently took a trip to Yuma and were looking forward to staying at the Best Western Coronado hotel in the historic district of town. The hotel is touted as a charming, historical property with beautiful landscaping and upgraded rooms.
Generally it was a disappointment, despite the welcoming and friendly front desk staff. In actual fact, it is a very basic motel on a busy street. There have been some attempt to upgrade the beds and the TV, but the kitchenette units and bathrooms are needing attention in both modernization and in cleanliness. There was a very small swimming pool surrounded by concrete with no landscaping. The sound of traffic was audible day and night, and the back window of our unit looked out on a blank wall.
A full breakfast was included in a neighboring restaurant, which was nice, but the bar in this restaurant was also an off track betting establishment, which did not entice us to patronize it the remainder of the day. No other restaurants are within walking distance.
Staying in the historic area of Yuma does not offer much for the tourist. There have been an attempt to revitalize the downtown, but with little success to this point, since many properties are vacant, and people are not around, especially in the evening. This establishment was at best 2 star in our experience, and should not be represented as 3+ stars. We would not stay here again, and were surprised that the Best Western logo did not provide us with the service and accommodation we are accustomed to.

We took a suite across the road from the check in desk, hoping it would be big enough for three people and two pets. It had two bedrooms each with an air-conditioner, which was glacial, but there wasn't enough room for three average-size suitcases let alone our camera bags and our cooler. The bathroom didn't have a vanity to lay out our toothpaste and toothbrushes. I don't know the square footage, but it was much smaller than the average motel room. Maybe that's because it was built in 1938 and was one of the original Best Westerns.

Room Tip: The suite with the kitchen used to be the best room, but they've permanently rented it out to th...

Thanks you for your comments about your recent stay with us. I'm sorry the the room you had was not what you expected. One of the advance of this hotel is we have so many room types next time you book a room, book the excutive suite. That is a room with a sofa sleeper and a King size bed, plus another room with a Queen size bed. These rooms also have two TV's but have a lot more room. Looking forward to your call when you return to Yuma.
