I am amazed with the negative reviews this hotel received. I booked this hotel for Memorial Day weekend and was thrilled with my experience. Our hotel (which coincidentally was near the stairs and in tower 5) was clean, neat, quiet and comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the water and could smell all the wild flowers from our balacony. The hotel staff was accommodating, courteous and friendly. I would definately stay there again. In response to some of the other negative comments regarding the "long walk from the lobby to tower 5" I would have to stay that these reviewers are simply out of shape! The walk is not long at all (maybe 150 yards). And who minds the walk when you have the marina and the scenery to keep you company? I would agree with some reviewers that it is rediculous to charge for parking, but every place does--not just Coronado Bay. STAY HERE. YOU'LL LOVE IT.
