Loews Resort at Coronado Bay was not a convenient place to stay. It was far from downtown Coronado and did not offer convenient transportation. You had to make reservations in advance for the shuttle, which only went into the town and back 4 times a day and only stopped at one place. The last ride back to the resort was at 6:15 p.m. so you could not enjoy San Diego very long if you wanted to catch the shuttle back to the resort. The shuttle stop was 12 blocks away from the waterfront so you had to walk a long way to catch the ferry. When we decided to take the city bus back to the resort so we could stay in San Diego later, we were dropped off about 1 mile away from the resort. We had to walk that long distance and all of us had blisters on our feet by the time we arrived. Fortunately, we were in pretty good shape. However, this would have been very difficult for senior citizens or families with small children. In addition, it would have been very dangerous for teenage girls or young women to walk that far by themselves after dark.
Aside from the transportation issues, the resort should have offered more activities. There was plenty for children to do; however, our teenagers were extremely bored. There was no opportunity for them to meet other teens in the resort. Loews should have also had more opportunities for the adults to socialize, such as laus, 50s night, etc. Since the resort is so far from everything, a night club with dancing would have prevented our desire to go elsewhere.
