We enjoyed our honeymoon stay at the El Cordova. Staff was very friendly. The hotel is very close to many restaurants and shops, and only a short walk to Coronado beach. It is across the street from the famous Hotel del Coronado. The El Cordova has a decent continental breakfast every morning, in addition to hot coffee in the lobby...

The hotel is conveniently located across from the famous Hotel Del Coronado and the beach. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel for quick access to the free shuttle that runs during the summer, which takes you straight to the ferry for a $5 trip over to downtown San Diego and the Gas Lamp district. Keep in mind...

El Cordova has a fantastic location but our suite is in need of serious updating. The only mirror was over the sink in the tiny bathroom and the giant closet had minimal hangers. The window air conditioner in the bedroom was ineffective on a day with rare heat and humidity in Coronado -- thank goodness for the pool. The suite...

This hotel is located in a very convenient place, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues are in a walking distance. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel overall is cozy. The only reason I didn't rate higher is because it doesn't provide parking, so if you drive this will be one issue to resolve. Also, my room was not...

Teresa K - Thank you for taking the time to share with us your thoughts. We can certainly appreciate that parking can be a challenge during the summer season. It is our goal to remedy this concern by providing our guests a place to unload directly outside our front door. Also, our guest services team is always ready to point...

Reviewed 13 July 2015

nice place, older but clean with a really quaint feel. Complimentary breakfast nice, and the courtyard great to mingle, and/ or cook your own food. I would definitely stay there again. Only downside, is our room was over the restaurant. They started making noise quite early every morning. Try to request one not near that.

This is a wonderful little Hotel in a perfect location. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would love to see their rooms upgraded a bit (new carpet or tile), and you need to be ok with a tiny shower and bathroom, but it was worth saving the money here to enjoy Coronado. I will be back!

Very pleased with stay. Great location in Coronado. Walking distance to lots of great restaurants, the beach, etc. Comfortable accomodations. Attractive facility and friendly staff. Used hot tub and pool. Only downside was the breakfast with packaged pastries and dry cereal.
