The El Cordova is a must stay for anyone who doesn't want to deal with the high energy and cost of the Del. The location is prime... just a short stroll to the beautiful combed and manicured beach, restaurants and shops that line Orange. We stayed here for 4 nights the last week of July and it was perfect!! The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was charming and had everything we needed including a full kitchen. The windows looked out onto the enchanted courtyards with brick walkways with flowers everywhere. There was free coffee and tea in the lobby all day and night for guests. They have a nice continental breakfast (cereal, pastries, milk, OJ, coffee, apple & oranges) till 10am which is nice for us travelers who like to sleep in a bit. OR... if you choose you can use your vouchers for $4 off at the french crepe place on the property. Our room was quite close to fabulous Miguels so we were able to put our names in and go back to our room to relax for a few minutes before our name was called:)) Everything was so close, we walked and biked everywhere and never left Coronado Island at all. The room was quiet, the bed and linens were comfortable, and the windows were double pained and had great black out curtains. The only only thing I should forewarn of was the parking. There is none for the hotel per say. We checked in at 5pm after having driven from AZ, so we parked in front of the hotel and fed the meter (which are VERY cheap!! but can only be used for 2 hours) til 6pm when the parking is free and you can stay there till 8am the next morning. We actually waited till that night and re-parked down a residential street about a block and a half from the hotel (per hotel staff recommendation) and left our car there for the next 4 days and nights and it was just fine. The walk from the car was short and great for house drooling... so many lovely homes on this island!! When we left, we pulled our car up to the curb, fed the meter, loaded up our stuff and pulled away... easy as pie :)) We stayed mid week though... so... a weekend stay could be a different story. I loved this little hotel, We will definitely be back to the El Cordova.

This hotel was extremely clean and well cared for. The grounds were gorgeous. The restaurants in the hotel (Miguel's Mexican) were off the hook. I loved how close it is (walking distance) to everything! The staff was very helpful and nice.

A couple of reasons they didn't get perfect rating is the continental breakfast was all cold pastries and cereal. I would have preferred something warm along with the basic Danish and pastry bites. ALSO, they are trying to improve it, but sometimes our showers went all HOT or all COLD.

Conviently located to all that's to see in Coronado. Room was okay; a bit tired looking. Had a musty smell. Good enough for one night. No parking; at all. Unsat. Good enough for short stays of 1-3 days.

Our stay at the El Cordova was quite enjoyable. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. We booked the 2 bedroom family suite for the 3 adults in our party and found it to be very spacious. The bathroom was small but adequate, the shower did need some playing with to get the right temperature but, once you got the hang of it there was no problem. Everyone associated with the hotel was wonderful and so friendly. The continental breakfast is a plus and if you don't want that you can use the vouchers for a discount at the crepe restaurant at the hotel. This hotel is located in a great place and we had a wonderful time. We would definitely go back the next time we visit Coronado!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our friends bday party that was there. We loved the room and decor. The staff is really friendly and there are restaurants in the hotel mixed in with the rooms. It is really interesting how the setup is. The only thing that was a downside was that we had gone to bed late and we could hear the cleaning crew early in the morning talking and cleaning up the grounds. The walls are pretty thin.
