Gunny and Cosmo had a BLAST. I ALWAYS stay at the Crown City Inn. Convenient and cozy well appointed rooms. Everyone is ALWAYS friendly. Easy access to everything, and the Crown Bistro is a gem as well.

Our third stay at the Crown City Inn on our visits to the San Diego area. The Inn is small, but don't let that put you off. The rooms are compact but clean as a whistle, the front desk staff are cordial and knowledgeable, and the restaurant is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The staff is eager to please,...

The Crown City Inn is right in the middle of charming Coronado and is the perfect place to stay for business or for pleasure. The rooms are super clean, nicely decorated and appointed. Staff is very knowledgeable and very helpful. And to top it off, the coffee in the room and in the lobby is excellent.

As of mid 2017 the room upgrades are fairly new and were well done. For the room rates the property was less than others locally ... thus good value. The location is mid way between the pier and beach, so a nice ten minute walk either way. The only drawback were inconsiderate guests who in the morning, being as loud...

I cannot say enough about how overly satisfied I was with my visit to Coronado. This little gem on the island is right on the main strip. The staff was so helpful and really made me and my family feel right at home! Can't wait to come back again!

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...

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...

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
