I like the GBI and stay here often. It is a wonderful price point in Coronado. Some hotels are much more expensive, while there are cheaper ones too. This one offers a great location, a fair number of amenities, etc. for a good price.
I have only stayed in the 'contemporary' rooms and never in the 'mansion' rooms. The contemporary rooms are fairly average. They are not huge. The bathrooms are small. There is little to no space on the vanities. I found the air conditioning to be quite noisy with a lot of rattling noises. I don't mind the woosh of air sound but the rattling kept me up.
The internet is spotty. It is included, but it is also variable. I found I had to sign on multiple times even after only a few minutes of use. Very annoying.
The continental breakfast is fine. Coffee is available all day in the lobby.
The housekeeping and maintenance staff is very friendly, but I've often found the front desk staff to be less warm. I've had trouble with people calling the hotel on their NON-800 number to reach me - which is what you're supposed to do - only to be switched to the 800 number and then told a transfer to a room wasn't possible. This especially annoyed my husband who tried to explain he HADN'T called the 800 number! The receptionist could have been more courteous.
All in all it is a nice hotel. It is not quite up to the level of service of the Hotel Del or the Marriott, but for the price it is nice.
