“Great Old-World Feel with this Coronado Gem”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

We loves the El Cordova Hotel! From check-in to check-out, it was a pleasurable experience. The on-site and nearby shopping was a huge plus that made a quick run for a honeymoon breakfast in bed possible.

Room Tip: Ours was by the pool and seemed to be the best room in the place.

Thank you for the review of our hotel. I am happy to hear that you had a great experience for your honeymoon. Hopefully you will think of us again for your 5 or 10 year anniversary! Then you would be able to try out the brand new French creperie on property. The name of the place is Fabrison’s and they specialize in breakfast.

Thanks again for staying with us. Congratulations to the both of you.

My family and I travel to Coronado every summer and have stayed at several different hotels. Our latest stay at the El Cordova was the best so far.

We stayed at the El Cordova in the Casa Grande suite for my daughter’s wedding in May 2012. I cannot say enough good things about our stay! We stayed for 6 days and it was the perfect place and the perfect wedding! First of all, the suite is perfect for all of the bridal party to get dressed in and for pictures. It’s around 1800 sq ft. My daughter even laid in the antique claw bathtub in her wedding dress for pictures. We had the wedding on the beach at the Del Coronado and promenaded down the street with the bride, walking from the hotel, it was breathtaking. We had the rehearsal dinner at the hotel in the courtyard and everything was perfect and beautiful! Staying in the suite provided a separate private entrance for us to have our privacy and for the bride and family. I suggest renting out the whole floor that has two or three other rooms on the same private floor as the Casa Grande suite. Micah the hotel manager was awesome, as was Christine the front desk attendant. All of the front desk gentlemen that set up the rehearsal dinner went over and beyond and made the night even more special in the courtyard. Christine went over and beyond all of our requests and helped in every possible way to make our stay comfortable. The shops and the restaurants in the hotel make one feel like they are in another country and we felt safe the whole time. One of the workers from the Mexican restaurant even cut up our cantaloupe for us when we had a barbeque in the courtyard one day. The happy hour at the sea food restaurant downstairs is great and reasonably priced as well. We had the wedding reception at the community center on the bay and it was a perfect walk from the hotel. We rented bikes from Lil Sam downstairs for the whole wedding crew every day and went around the island and loved seeing the sites. Just ask him where some of the cool spots are to visit and say Anthony from Arizona and the May wedding sent you! Most all of the rooms are unique and recently renovated with old world charm and antiques. All of the guest stayed at the hotel and had a great time at the beach and walking over to the Del to enjoy all of the concerts on the beach and activities they have daily. Something for everyone to do!! We hope to return for our 30 yr. wedding anniversary. Again, a wonderful pleasant experience!!! Anthony & Cheryl Luttrull

This is a reasonably priced oasis in a high priced desert. If you enjoy staying in a property with character this is the spot. The two bedroom suite with the kitchen is lovely. the one bedroom units might fall in the "funky" category but the PRICE is right.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you are a bathroom snob. Bathrooms are tiny. Stay here if you are tired of to...

Our family stayed at El Cordova in May of 2012. I would highly recommend this hotel for families. It has a nice courtyard, where you can grab dinner outside, a delicious Mexican restaurant adjacent to the hotel (which is located literally within the courtyard), a pool and a hot tub (great for kids!), and is about 5 min walk from the beach. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at El Cordova very much, and we would love to visit again.
