    Wonderful stay in Coronado

    Great little hotel and great price for staying one block from beach and across the street from hotel del Coronado. Once you're there just leave the car and you walk everywhere. You got lots of exercise walking the beach walking the neighborhoods and walking around the small business district. Great variety of restaurants and spa options.

    The Perfect Hotel for Your Coronado Stay

    It was like being on a honeymoon. It was my birthday and I was presented with the best gift ever—an upgraded room. You can walk everywhere from the hotel, and one of the best restaurants for fajitas is right on site. Room decor was charming, beds were comfortable and shower was great.The staff is over the top great. Highly recommend.

    Pros & Cons

    Pros- nice room good size , staff was friendly , location was across the street from hotel Del Cons-because they have the restaurant in the hotel there is a lot of noise and smells from the dish cleaning , when you go to your room you walk through the middle where the workers are cleaning the restaurant water at 8-9 in the morning unfortunately the smell never goes away , there is no parking , you need to park blocks away in a residential street parking that does not have a 2 or 4 hour parking sign , even though the room was good size the bathroom was super small Unfortunately because of the smell I would not stay here again.

    Pros and Cons

    Great location, convenient to beach, restaurants and shops and general walking areas. Room was pleasant, bathroom quite small. BUT, we would NOT book there again due to the required steep stairs with short-depth steps to reach nearly all of the rooms which are on the 2nd level. We are 78 yrs old, not impaired but not used to stairs. Also, the loud noise of the open and lively (and wonderful) Miguel's Restaurant in the middle of the hacienda-type hotel is unavoidable from lunch to 9 or 10 pm. Another noisy area that affects at least half of the rooms is the swimming pool which 1 or 2 families with screaming kids can occupy for hours. Not our cup of tea. Parking is $30 per night for an off-site garage somewhere. OR walk 3-4 blocks to find free parking on a residential street.

    Weekend getaway

    The hotel is centrally located on Coronado. Close to shops, the beach, restaurants, etc. We stayed in their smallest rooms because it was just me and my wife, and it worked perfectly. The room was comfortable and staff were friendly.

    Other than the noise coming from the on-site restaurant, it was a pleasant stay.
