My wife and I had a three-night stay at the hotel and it was great. We chose a standard room, which lacked any breathtaking views, but we were there only to sleep. There is so much to see on Coronado Island. The beach is a 5-minute walk away, as are numerous restaurants and the grand old Hotel del Coronado. The...

The perfect location. Our room was clean, the pillows and bed were comfortable. There was a bottle of wine in the room. Walking distance to the whole "island" and all the restaurants and shopping as well as the golf course, marina and the beach. The breakfast is very nice and changes slightly each day. There is indoor and outdoor seating....

We loved staying at the Glorietta Bay Inn for two nights while in Coronado. I originally looked at staying at the Hotel del Coronado, but the rooms were so expensive. The Glorietta Bay Inn is right across the street and is a lovely place! We walked to the beach, and the front desk even has all the beach accessories you...

We came here for a wedding and stayed for one night. The staff was very friendly and gracious. Parking was $15.00/day. The room was small, clean and simple. A couple of issues with the room: throughout the night, the toilet made very strange noises and almost sounded like it was preparing for take off like an engine or spaceship. Also,...

We spent one day and night here Feb 24. It was in the Garden Suite or Butler Room of the Mansion. The service was impeccable. Greeted with such warmth. The room was so large with a patio where we enjoyed our lunch. It had a full kitchen also. The breakfast had so much variety and delicious freshly baked goods as...

Sadly this was an unpleasant experience. The hotel was not as advertised on its on-line website. The room was drab and poorly ventilated. The view of the bay was distant. When entering the room following check-in we discovered a soiled toilet and housekeeping needed to clean before we were able to unpack and begin our stay. The staff was helpful...

We had a wonderful stay here over President's Day Weekend. The manager, Claudia, warmly welcomed our family and made sure we were enjoying our stay the entire time we were there. We loved our spacious one-bedroom suite with a kitchen and back patio and felt very comfortable there. The hotel has umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys for...

We booked this place after getting frustrated over at the Del the last few visits. It was a beautiful property right across the street from the Del and within walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops. We booked a junior suite and it was good. Wished we had booked a room in the mansion once we arrived. The complimentary...

After spending three nights at the Glorietta, I am already planning a return vacation. We went to celebrate a birthday and anniversary and told them so at the desk when we checked in.
