“Not What We Expected From Reading Other Reviews!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

The positive was the City Lights View of SD and the access to the public walkway in front of the hotel and that's about it. We went there for a Honeymoon and did not even get a "Congratulations!" from the staff. The room's carpet was soiled as well as the couch and it smelled of fumigation. Nothing special from the decor just old mismatched furniture. The bathroom was recently remodeled however and was large. There was suppose to be a Water Taxi service to the mainland included with the stay but "Sorry its not Running" was the answer we got and so we paid $12/person to go to R/T to SD each night by the public one. No pool service whatsoever and the water dispenser was even empty. Pool bar Closed! Breakfast orders were often messed up and the maid did not speak any English. BTW I live in So Cal and its not that I do not have a grasp of the Spanish language it just tells me that the Marriott is cutting corners. Internet service was free in the lobby area only and was horrid. I know my old 300 baud modem was faster. The refrigerator was not capable of chilling a bottle of wine and so a cooler and ice bucket were necessary. The bottom line,... sure its Coronado Island and its a Beach Resort. But we even prepaid for the breakfast and it ended up costing us. If your going to shut down your Hotel after September because its the off season then you should let the people know before we book and we will go elsewhere. I would never go back as I think there are many better options on Coronado Island.

Room Tip: Inspect the room first.

The views, the grounds, the rooms, the facilities and even the walkways to the rooms were spectacular. At night, the place becomes magical with the fire pits, the city lights, and the outdoor lighting. You can access a well-lit pathway by the water for a long walk and go out on the pier. There are many places with chairs where you can sit and soak it all in, even a gazebo with comfortable outdoor sofas. We didn't use the pool or hot tub as it was very cool that night, but they were beautiful and sparkling clear. For such a great resort on such a large property, they should provide parking. Parking is $25 a day. Wireless internet is $13 a day. You can get free wireless access in the Tides bar... Of course, to keep you there. Be sure to keep your room key when checking out. You can't get out of the lot without it.

My wife and I stayed in one of the villas the night we were married. We decided to return this last weekend when we were in town for the Keith Urban concert (which was great) and this time we had a villa with a bay view. The room was spacious, clean and had a spectacular view. We could walk to everything we needed and we could just sit on the porch and admire the city and the bay. The huge shower with two shower heads was also great. Service was excellent, we ordered breakfast and it was great. I hope we don't wait another 16 years to come back!

Room Tip: The villas are great, but not all have a view. We stayed in villa 422 and loved it.

The Marriott Coronado Island Resort is a wonderful place to have a small conference or just for a stay in San Diego. The hotel is just minutes away from the ferry landing (but running their own watertaxi to downtown SD as well), has a great pool, unbeatable views of SD at night and good food. I came from a conference and stay at the somewhat outdated and concrete Towne and Country Resort and moved for a followng conference to Coronado and I was so pleased. A little thing that is great: you can see the watertemperature on the shower, very convenient. One issue I have: they charge you big time for wi-fi in the room. Hotels should just stop charge you for that and take care of free hi-speed internet everywhere!

Can't say enough for the view, and exceptional services. The landscaping and layout is beautiful. The room was clean, but needs to be updated, as well as the outside buildings. More attention needs to be paid to overall cleanliness of the hallways and atriums.
With that said, the location is great. Waterfront view of Downtown, plenty of walking, great restaurants and close to ferry, which runs every hour. would definetly stay again.

We stayed at the Marriott on Coronado Island in late August 2013. It was a pretty resort. The rooms were very spacious and well appointed. Loved the large bathroom, walk in closet and deck overlooking the bay and San Diego. Service was excellent.

My only complaints were the high daily parking fees and the lack of free Wifi which is customary in even lower end hotels these days.

We stayed the weekend in one of the villas and I can say it was GREAT.
The Villa was clean and comfortable, the view of downtown San Diego was awesome.
I highly recommend staying here if you want to get away for the weekend.
