Mixed Bag

There are positives and negatives about the El Cordova in Coronado. First the positives: 1) Great Location. The Hotel Del Coronado is the only hotel in Coronado that is on the beach. If you don't want to pay the price, then the next best thing is to be a block from the beach which is where the El Cordova is. It is also within walking distance of everything in this great little town - which is a real plus. 2) Good bed. We sept very comfortably with good mattress and pillows. 3) Charming Mexican...

Lovely Suite

by Edviga on 14 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We booked the king sized suite, and it was like a charming forties apartment with kitchenette, living room, separate bedroom, walk in closet, and tub. We were located directly on the street so I was worried about noise but the windows were super tight and I slept like a baby. Super nice young people at the front desk. A cozy place right across from the Del Coronado.

Great vive, great stay

I was in town for a convention and got a great rate online and decided that I could not pass up staying on Coronado Island, especially across the street from the Del.

I believe these were originally built as apartments, I f...

Charming but....

by Suzy S on 02 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed at El Cordova Hotel during Christmas week. It is very charming when you walk around. But then...reality checked in. We were in suite #51. Nice courtyard for guests right outside our door, however, kitchen staff used it more than guests. Would even stand right outside our door to visit during their breaks. Our bedroom windows faced an alley. Continuous traffic or parking inches from the window. It felt like they were going through our bedroom. Vendors, delivery or catering traf...

Quality hotel and a great price!

by AndreaTX2014 on 01 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We were very happy with the accommodations! It was like a little apartment which was perfect for our family of four. And having Miguels Mexican restaurant right there was very convenient. The location of this hotel is fantastic. So many things within walking distance. It was a little inconvenient that there wasn't reserved parking closer (for when you needed to travel by car to the San Diego Zoo etc). I guess they have a garage you can pay to park in but it's a block or so away.
