“Great historic hotel with all the new amenities”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We had a very injoyable stay. Our room was not huge but very stylish. Old walls and woodwork but up to date decor. And it is more like a resort than a hotel. You don't have to leave if you don't want to. They have everything. The Beach is wonderful and not crowded as it is huge. And as we were not traveling with kids, the adults only pool is great! I can't say much about the restaurants. We went into town to eat most of the time. The only negative is it is very pricey.

This is a fabulous hotel. We took our kids for Spring Break. There is alot to do at the hotel with the pool, beach and activities for the kids. There are alot of restaurants in the hotel as well as within in walking distance. The Sunday brunch was the BEST I have ever had. The kids still talk about how good it was. This is a beautiful hotel and worth the money. We will come back soon.

Room Tip: The rooms that face the beach are awesome. Waking up to that view is worth the money.

I really love the Del. It feels like a home away from home. The location is perfect. The weather is great. Great surrounding restaurants. It's an old Historic building but it has character. I had one incident but the director took care of it instantly. Very impressed. I will be back next year. Great service.

We have stayed at the Del several times. The beachfront location on Coronado can not be beat. It must rely a little less on location & put more emphasis on service & upgrades. Service at both Babcock & Story & Eno was very slow & marginal. The food at Eno was very good however lunch at B&S was very low quality. Beach service is basic. You can get chairs & towels for the beach however there is a daily charge for a beach umbrella. Good luck finding help with beach set up... It is not standard.
As far as rooms go we always stay in the first floor of the California Cabanas. We love the patio with a view of the ocean. The rooms are showing some wear ' the A/C was less than efficient. For the cost of rooms at this hotel I would expect quality & service to be more in line with that of a 4 star property.

My wife had business conference a few years ago and we stayed at the Hotel del Coronado. We had a wonderful time. We got to see the San Diego Zoo at night and had a dinner there. While my wife was in conference during the day, I would walk over the Coronado Island and was just amazed at what I saw. There were Navy taking of from the island. I had a few good meals. at lunch. When we were together, we dined at several places, we went to see the carrier USS Midway, what atrip that was!

Room Tip: Choose the ocean side if you want a good room.

I am not a person that is hard to please at all nor do I complain unless I really have a reason, however, I know what clean and reasonable is. This old hotel really should be closed down. It's falling apart and has a very musty smell, the floor in my room was hilly and squeaked. For 319.00 per night, I just don't see how anyone could say this is a great hotel. I am sick to my stomach now since lunch from the crab blt. I can't reach anyone by phone downstairs. The people in the shops were very very nice, but that is not where you spend your time. Please folks, if you want to have a good visit in San Diego, don't stay here.
