“Clean and reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Coronado Island is not for the faint of purchasers. It can be very pricey to stay and to eat but we were pleasantly surprised to find La Avenida, almost directly across from the famous Coronado Hotel both available and reasonably priced. I was particularly impressed with Benny from the front desk, who was quite accomodating to our requests, and the cleaning staff who are both quick and thorough. I never did find out where the pool towels were but it was too cold for swimming over the Christmas holidays. It would also be nice to have real dairy (even creamers) for the complimentary breakfast but the assortment of pastries was fresh and varied - a nice change from pre-packaged 'danish' so often included.

Thank you for your review of your recent visit to Coronado. I have forwarded your kind words and comments to each of our staff and they were thrilled. For future reference we have the pool/beach towels upon request at the front desk. We apologize if there was any confusion and that you were unable to find them. Upon your suggestion, I also have purchased half and half creamers for the morning coffee. Thank you for your comments. Hope to see you soon.

Have been going to Coronado for 30+ years. By far the best location and nicest staff we have ever contacted with but, the difference is they have a genuine and sincere desire to help.....and with a smile. Don't want to recommend LAI because we will never get in next time. Just kidding. Jodi was an absolute delight as well as all others. Had our bikes and, what a surprise, NO "facility fee" and no "parking fee". Can't wait to get back.
Glad we called direct and did NOT use an internet service. Much less expensive................

A great spot in Coronado. Close to the Del, the beach, the shops, everything! You can park (FREE!) and walk or ride a bike to most anywhere in Coronado. The property is older but very well kept. If not for the noise created by other guests coming and going (obviously unaware that other people were staying there) and the early morning buzz from the eateries next door it would have been even more enjoyable. We will be back!

I would highly recommend staying at the avenida. I am definitely coming back!
The place is very clean, friendly, and an excellent location in Coronado island. The fact that this place has free parking is also an asset.

I like staying there is convenient location and good value, but I wish they had refrigerators in rooms. Very nice, sorry to leave. Nice staff, could use coffee pots in rooms, but wasn't hard to run up front for coffee.

We would like express our sincere gratitude for choosing to stay with us. Upon your next visit, let us know of your preference to have a coffee maker and we will make sure to place it in your room. We do have them available upon request at the Front Desk. We also do offer refrigerators for our guest rooms; however, these are available at a small nominal nightly fee and can be placed in the room by contacting the Front Desk.
Thank you for your wonderful comment of our staff. We truly appreciate it and for taking the time to post your comments! We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.

Great location. Rooms are cozy and reasonably updated. The bathroom floor had some areas that needed attention but everything was clean, tidy, and welcoming.
Annie was fantastic. She helped me with all of my local planning questions in advance of our trip.
The rooms were tidy and comfortable.
While we didn't watch much TV, I do believe upgrading the sets would be nice (our stay was in a cooler period and we had some rain).
Would stay there again for sure if prices are reasonable.

Ideal location of hotel within 5 mins walk to beach and within Coronado main street of restaurants and shops. Very clean rooms with separate dressing area and suitable size bathroom. No issues with WIFI, free parking was ideal. Only complaint is the variety of tea offered for breakfast, which didn't include black tea (only flavoured tea) and only included powdered milk, which isn't to everyone's taste. Pool was ideal (but cold at this time of year). We stayed in a downstairs room and could hear guests walk around upstairs, but we didn't have any issues with noise from the main road. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and on Coronado.

Room Tip: Upstairs room as we had downstairs room and could hear guests walk around upstairs.
