We stayed at the "Glorietta Bay Inn" so we could enjoy The American Christmas at the Del and not have a late night drive home.
The inn is beautiful, especially decorated for Christmas.
The location across the street from the bay is perfect for walking into town, walking on the beach, and touring the Del.
Staff was great, very friendly and helpful as we checked in.
Breakfast was a hearty continental in a beautiful setting.
Only issue I had was parking, the hotel charges $10.00 for parking in what is a basic parking lot of any type of chain motel.

Room Tip: We had one of the newer rooms with a balcony which had a view of the bay. Only issue we had was morning traffic noise but it was worth it for the view.

From the time I made my reservations over the phone, to when I checked in, the front desk staff were very pleasant. It was clear that their goal is to make their guests feel very welcomed, and they actually paid attention to the detail I provided as to what we were celebrating (our wedding anniversary)! They left us a nice card in our room along with a bottle of wine & glasses, which was part of the package we reserved. They even gave us a $10 coupon to use at the restaurant where we were going to have our celebration dinner. The daily extended breakfast was very nice, and the afternoon cookies & lemonade were yummy! The location is great, as we were able to walk to shops & restaurants. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We had a partial bay view which was nice, but next time I will request the rooms on the front side of the hotel in order to enjoy the full view of the bay and marina.

Our group stayed here during a recent trip to San Diego. Overall, we were impressed by this hotel. The main part of the hotel is located in a very pretty turn-of-the-century mansion, which has been added onto over the years with low-rise hotel room units around the back. The result is an interesting mix of hotel suite and bed-and-breakfast type feel to this property. Staff service was exceptional. The hotel is within an easy walking distance to Coronado's main street shops and the beautiful Pacific Ocean beaches. The property has a pool and a hot tub. There is a nominal parking fee at this hotel, but it's worth paying - parking in Coronado can be challenging during busier periods.

Our room was in the newer part of the hotel, and was a two-bedroom and two bathroom suite. The second bathroom did not have a shower, and both bathrooms were a little on the small side. However, the room was very clean and comfortable, and even had its own balcony. The furnishings were very modern. Our suite had a fridge and a flat screen TV in each bedroom. The complimentary wifi internet worked flawlessly.

Breakfast was included in the room rate and featured the usual cereal, muffins and pastries. Although the breakfast was fairly typical, the breakfast sitting room (the former mansion's parlour) was simply stunning! The ornate features and attention to detail, particularly in the ceiling, were an absolute delight to view. There was also plenty of outdoor patio seating on which to enjoy breakfast, offering some very pleasant views of the marinas of Glorietta Bay and Coronado.

Overall, this hotel delivered on all fronts. There were no surprises here - Highly recommended!

Thank you for the lovely write up about your stay at Glorietta Bay Inn. We're happy to hear that you loved the Music Room during breakfast. The room still has the original crown moulding of the former Music Room where an enormous 41-rank Aeolian Pipe Organ used to play. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Thank you, Kelsey McCabe

We stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn for our second time over the Thanksgiving holiday. The property continues to shine, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Coronado. The rooms are spacious, sparkling, and convenient. The breakfast buffet (with a table overlooking the marina) is a delight. The hotel is an easy walk or bike-ride to everything.
I will definitely look forward to our next visit to Coronado…and that will definitely include the Glorietta Bay Inn!

Spent three nights here in a bayview king. Good sized room with nice appointments and a comfortable chair. Good desk work area. Bathroom a bit tight. View of harbor. Good continental breakfast. Staff was friendly from clerks to the maids. Mansion rooms were a treat to enjoy. It a couple minute walk to beachfront and the "del" is across the street with its shops and restaurants. Other restaurants in easy walk range.

Rooms near orange ave - Between 6am and 8am traffic is noisy out on the deck.
