Our kids gave us a one night stay here for our 25th wedding anniversary. Although this hotel is small and older, they excel in customer service and their rooms are clean and comfortable. They offer a lot of amenities that other hotels don't offer for 1/2 the price of the bigger hotels. Our room was big, had a microwave, refrigerator...

We booked last minute when we saw this accomodation while driving through Coronado. Customer service was exceptional and facilities where fantastic I.e laundry and complimentary push bikes :) Value for money was also very good! Felt very welcome and would highly recommend to others!

Was pleasantly surprised! Courteous staff, wonderfully appointed rooms (iron, ironing board, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, USB sockets for charging devices), cookies and coffee in the lobby...cute bistro attached - convenient location - walking distance to ferry to downtown San Diego and walking distance to Coronado beaches (other direction) and really affordable daily rate. Overall, a fantastic stay! Would definitely come...

This establishment (it is more of a motel than an "Inn" in my mind) is an excellent value in a great location. It is clean, well managed and, for the most part, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Complimentary coffee/hot chocolate cookies in the late afternoon is a nice touch. Ditto the free parking. (We found that parking at...

This is a small, rundown motor court. In our room the bathroom had been updated but the rest of the room was extremely tired. Our mattress had a severe sag in the middle. The room was very cold but fortunately we had an electric space heater. I didn't dare walk on the carpet without my shoes. We were unable to...

I'm sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Our room decoration IS tired & is why we are replacing all 'soft' goods this winter (done in some rooms already--new comforters, pillows, chairs, artwork), and new furniture in some rooms. To respond to a few of your problems: All of our mattresses were replaced last Spring, so it does concern me...

Small quiet clean hotel. Looks like it is a small family business, they offer free bicycles, which they have named them all, so you go and ask to take "Emi" for a ride 😊. They offer free tea and coffee with lots of flavours at the lobby and in the rooms. I like the bathroom old style very much. The...

We completed our 7 night stay at the Crown City Inn yesterday. The room was a good size. It was clean, well lit, and comfortable. It looked as if it was newly painted! The bathroom was small but the shower was large. The sink vanity was open style wrought iron and kind of large for the space! You had to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Coronado, CA, just across the San Diego/Coronado Bay Bridge from downtown San Diego. Crown City Inn is your affordable choice to stay close to the beach. We have a swimming pool, beach cruiser bicycles, and surf/boogie boards to borrow to play in the water. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. On-site Crown Bistro is a favorite with the locals and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service daily. Kids and pets are welcome. Both receive a goody bag at check-in. Don't miss our afternoon "tea" with homemade almond shortbread, oatmeal-cranberry cookies, thumbprint cookies and brownies; and coffee and iced tea bar. ... more   less
