Driving into the drive of the Crown City Inn was like taking a step back in time in the hustle and bustle of big city life. The room was clean and neat, the beds were comfortable, and the stay was very reasonably priced. The bathroom was nicely updated with loads of towels! The inn is centrally located and easy to...

We love this cute hotel. Our second stay here. Super clean. Within walking distance to everything. Only drawback is that the internet is really slow. But otherwise perfect! Love this hotel! Super clean, all refurbished, really friendly staff.

This was our second visit and it was better the second time around. Parking is some what limited, but it is free. There is a free shuttle that stops right in front of the hotel plus they have free bicycles for guests. I would rather stay on Coronado than Maui. I love playing the local golf course where we have... More

This was a great find for us with our recent girl's trip. This is our new favorite place to stay in Coronado. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants, but also had a great restaurant attached where we had a great meal before getting started each day. Not to be confused with a free breakfast that many hotels have, this... More

We recently stay on a Monday - Wednesday in August. The Inn is a little over a mile to the beach. My husband and our 2 daughters (7 &15) didn't have any trouble trekking back and forth to the beach. The rooms were nice and clean. My only complaint is they do not have rooms with 2 queen size beds,... More

The first thing we want to credit is the excellent staff. We had a few issues with getting to Coronado due to flash flooding in the desert and the staff was very helpful.

We've been to Coronado many times, this was our first stay at Crown City. We were very pleased with our room. It was clean, and had a small fridge and microwave. We'll stay here again as it is a good value and the location is perfect, it's just about half way between the beach and the ferry. There's also bikes... More

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
