“Absolutely horrible and worth an extra $100 to stay in a professional Inn or hotel”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Absolutely horrible!!!!!!! The location is the only reason this place is still in business. The door to the room had huge gaps in it, the iron was old and stained my dress, everything in the hotel looks like they bought everything from goodwill in 1980. The ironing board was filthy & disgusting; I went to the front desk and asked for a decent one and they gave me another in the same condition. Then early in the morning the housekeeping staff were making tons of noise rolling around carts and talking to each other so loud that it sounded like they were yelling at each other. My fiancé asked the front desk attendant to tell them to be quiet for sleeping customers. They were quiet for about 10 minutes then were back to yelling at each other. We checked out right away and left angry. Then we tried to speak to the manager who will not return any messages and refuses to call me back. This place is completely unprofessional and needs to be completely renovated. I have stayed in hostels in Mexico that were significantly better than this. Also, there was no venting in the bathroom and there was a dumpster directly at the bathroom window.

Room Tip: Do not stay here unless you are desperate for a place to sleep and be woken up really early. Room 11...

Thank you for taking time to review our little hotel. We apologize for the not so stellar experience you had last time. We take every guests' concern seriously and try our best to address it at the best of our ability. The hotel is now under new management and we are taking care of issues and slowly improving everything to suit our guests' needs without taking away the vintage vibe that most people like about our little hotel. And that includes carpets, mattress and furniture. Should you give us another opportunity in the future, we will try our best to deliver a better experience for you.

We had a disaster with accommodation in San Diego so ended up looking for a place at 9pm on a friday night. The Coronado was available, a great price and we ended up staying for 4 nights.

Lovely little breakfast, free parking, walking distance to the ferry and the beach. Recommend for San Diego...

Room Tip: We had No1 - it was good but a little noisy by the road.

My husband and I had our house tented and needed a hotel for the weekend. We found this adorable, quaint hotel. It was on a busy street so I was a little nervous about the noise at night (I'm a light sleeper) but we asked for a room off the street and slept well. They informed us they had just gotten new beds and they were very comfortable (and I'm very picky). The staff was helpful and even let us make a bagel after the continental breakfast was over. I will bring out of towners and family here. I only recommend asking for a room off the street.

Room Tip: Ask for room off the street

Highly recommend this place if you are wanting to enjoy Coronado on a budget. The rooms were cleans and comfortable. We stayed in a room with a kitchen which was great because I love to cook when I am on vacation (cooking is actually fun when you aren't rushing home from work starving and trying to whip something together). It is super close to the Coronado Brewing Company which has great microbrews. There is also a pretty good continental breakfast in the morning. For what you pay, you literally can't beat it!

Room Tip: Get a room with a kitchen if you don't want to eat out for every meal. There is a grocery store...

The room was cozy, quiet at night, free wifi and its just a ten minute drive to downtown. The staff was really nice and attentive. Theres a swimming pool in the back but we didnt have time to use it. Overall great experience, and at a pretty low rate, hard to come by in Coronado Island. I'll definitely stay at Coronado Inn next time i visit San Diego. Thanks Erin for all your help!

Sunlight, Surf Steps Away. . . but, most importantly, SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE !

Old-time, old school hospitality just short of downtown, the Ferry, the naval bases, and, of course,
Coronado Downtown shopping and cuisine! We stopped in just for a one-night visit to the island, and obtained a month's worth of grande clean and personal contact from the front desk through the housekeepers, and even were professionally greeted by the Manageress.
The Coronado Inn is now on our permanent list. Classically quaint with all of the technical benefits. . . including a continental breakfast.
