Living in San Diego, a day trip to Coronado is an easy trip across the bridge ...but for some reason, we've never spent the night. Any why not? We decided to make a mid-week visit to the El Cordova Hotel, directly across the street from the beautiful and majestic crown jewel of Coronado, the Hotel del Coronado. Once inside the doors of the El Cordova, you step back in time to a Spanish village, complete with shopping and restaurants. The lush landscaping with its vibrant colors and the awnings are such a welcoming sight. They even have small kitchens for those who want to cook a meal. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the ceiling fan, even though it was quite cool in April. The fire pit, pool and fountain bring an elegant ambiance to this place. So glad we got a chance to visit before tourist season begins and it's impossible to get a room. We'll be back next Spring!

Hi Joy. If I had a dime for every place around San Diego I didn't take advantage of... So it's no surprise that you haven't spent the night in Coronado. But now that you have a new favorite place to stay when you visit, maybe we'll see you around more often. You don't have to wait until next Spring, you can always visit in late Fall, after tourist season is over, and the weather is still really nice. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, and we look forward to having you back as our guest.

This I a pretty cool little 'village' close to the beach in Coronado. There is a Mexican restaurant and Seafood / Steakhouse on site as well as a donut shop and gift shop. A pool and sitting area is center of the property and a great place to relax away from the busy streets. Quick walk across the road to the beach.

Hi SOBLVNV. Thanks for taking the time to tell others about your stay. "Pretty cool" is one a great little descriptor for us. We may not have all the flash of a downtown hotel, but we aren't all stuffy, either. I've always thought we were a cool little hotel in the middle of the best of what Coronado has to offer. We're so happy that you agree. Thank you again, and we look forward to having you back as our guest.
