Historical Traveler Reviews Glorietta Bay Inn Coronado
The Glorietta Bay Inn was absolutely charming!!! We stayed there for five nights in Room 104 of the Mansion. This room is one of the smaller mansion rooms, but the view from the room and patio swing was spectacular. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and overall fabulous. The continental style breakfast, afternoon gingersnaps and lemonade, and evening chocolate chip cookies and milk provide a bed and breakfast type atmosphere with the amenities of a large chain hotel.
Even without a car for transportation, the location is great. The beach, boathouse, restaurants, and shops are all within walking distance. A trolley, buses, and a ferry are easily accessible to provide transportation to the San Diego attractions. We highly recommend the Glorietta Bay Inn and plan to return ASAP!!!
The Glorietta Bay Inn is like going home with servants. It is simply perfect. I emphasize simply as it feels charming and simple yet service, rooms, breakfast and employees are flawless. I have been to Coronado at least 20 times and I have stayed many places there from the Del to Coronado Village Inn and numerous in between. Glorietta is now the only place I will stay. It is perfect for kids, seniors and everyone in between. The location is perfect whether crossing the street to the ocean or looking at the bay. At no time is there anything more important to the staff then making you feel comfortable. I encourage everyone to experience this special hospitatlity atleast once...as it will turn into twice. Do be sure to listen to the piano playing and to read the book of past visitors in the library. I am certain you will enjoy the afternoon treats. Happy Vacationing!
We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our 10 night California trip & wished we could have stayed for the other 7. We decided to upgrade to a mansion room and we were so happy we did. The beds were heavenly, the breakfast baskets were delightful and the decor was beautiful. The front desk staff was very helpful & my work-a-holic husband was very impressed with the free wireless internet connection. I highly reccomend this hotel!
We stayed here three nights in September. This was a very classy place that is affordable for this location. We fell in love with Coronado and San Diego. The hotel helped with its beautiful setting and very nice rooms. The service was great! The rooms are very quaint and very clean.
The breakfast was perfect too. Big yummy bagels and yogurt with nice hot coffee served from the beautiful mansion. We sat outside on the terrace in the evening sipping tea while the kids swam!
Very, very nice
Stayed one night (8/19/03),in the 200 Bldg. Very nice room (clean like brand new, large room size (even with 2 Queen Beds). Excellent staff, expanded Continental Breakfast and afternoon cookies and lemonade.
Short walk to beach (about 2 blocks) and short walk to downtown. Next time we want to stay a Coronado we certainly will stay here.
Very nice stay
just returned from a short trip to Coronado...found the Glorietta Bay Inn to be very comfortable and a nice place to stay...right across from the Hotel Del...balcony with a view of the bay...only downside was our room also faced the street with the resulting noise...nice continental buffet breakfast, pool and spa fine...overall would have no reservations in recommeding this for a stay on Coronado.
HAPPY CAMPER :)
I loved my trip to the Glorietta Bay Inn. The staff was so giving and truly went out of there way to make sure all my families needs where met. The breakfast was great and we where 1 block from the beach. We had a huge room at a great rate beacuse I went onto there website and found great monthly specials. I guess I lucked out with this one, I will be back for sure this coming Christmas season for a cozy Victorian Christmas in the mansion with my husband.
Glorietta Bay not worth the money
Staying in the mansion was very disappointing to say the least. The room was musty and very small. The doors to the guest rooms were very loud when they were opened and closed. I was awakened numerous times throughout the night, and did not sleep more than 3 hours in the 2 nights I was there.
Spacious rooms, friendly staff
I stayed here for 10 days in Sept 2002 with my husband and toddler daughter. We had a two bedroom suite which was spacious, with two bathrooms and a wet bar with microwave. The rooms are OK but not as plush as I could have hoped for given the nightly rate.
The hotel is small but very well located near the beach, shops and restaruants. Slightly disappointing that the contemporary rooms have no view. The "gardens" are nice but small and rooms look onto the courtyard.
Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. When we complained that the room carpets were dirty they were cleaned the same day.
The complementary breakfast on the patio is a nice start to the day although the birds are too adventurous for my taste, standing on the edge of the table watching for crumbs. I felt like an extra in Hitchcock's "The Birds"!
The only complaint was the noise from the adjoining rooms. The plumbing left something to be desired - if the toilet upstairs from us was flushed it sounded as though water was running down the walls. The soundproofing was not good - when the guests upstairs climbed the stairs to their room and stomped around upsatirs it sounded like a herd of elephants. We were sensitive to the noise since a toddler once woken can be awake for a while! As a result we left after 10 days instead of the 14 days we had planned.
I am still undecided if this was value for money - maybe in terms of a nice location and good service it was worth it and maybe California is just this expensive once you move out of common or garden chain hotels.
Great Place to Relax
My wife and I usually get to Coronado Island about 4 to 5 times a year. We stay at the Glorietta Bay Inn. The Inn is simply a very wonderful place to relax and spend sometime. It si right across the street from the Del Coronado and the beach. The rooms vary and are nicely decorated and furnished - very comfortable. We both enjoy the Inn. I would recommend this Inn to anybody who would be traveling to Coronado Island.

... 4 so we head to Coronado. I had a series of maps to help us, but we were using our nameless GPS. The traffic was heavy and NOT ONE highway or road had the same name as my maps. I could not even follow along! I have no idea where we went since it did not look to anywhere near where I thought the road was supposed to be. THANKS to GPS we. Found Coronado Island! Then things got really ugly when it tried to take us across a 3 lane, one way highway that ...
... setting up on the beach. When Mark was booking the hotel, he noticed that one of the services that the Del offered was family portraits. We chose to have our photos taken here as this is such a spectacular setting with the beach and the iconic Del architecture in the background.
The weather had been touch-and-go all day, and we debated whether we should reschedule the shoot for tomorrow. But things cleared up a bit and we decided to go for it. ...
... before going for a walk along the beach. Later that day, Mark and Cathy took us to see Last Vegas at the most luxurious cinema ever...it had reclining leather armchairs and waiters coming round to take your order - heaven! Oh and the film was good too! The next morning, Cathy took us to La Jolla, just down the coast from Del Mar, where we had "coast toast" - a delicious of version of French toast - whilst overlooking the ocean and the sea lions. Later ...
... a $44 entrance fee I stumbled across the most stunning area about half way down called El Prado (sorry Madrid). It's a gorgeous pedestrianised street lined with buildings I'm told represent the Spanish Colonial, Mission, and Pueblo revival styles. All I know is that it feels late-middle-age-eclesiastic/moorish/cam bodian, equipped with a botanical garden somewhere between the framework for Noah's ark and the pterosaur cage from Jurassic Park 3, and 'The Muesum of ...
... and within 10 mins your in this very modern facility. You don't even pay for the cab. The staff were fantastic, so caring and professional and clean ++++. Gary sat in the waiting room with big TV and free sodas. Once finished back into the cab to the border, that's where it all starts. Lines and lines of people waiting to cross not to mention the cars, sometimes takes 4 hours to get back into USA. For $10 some guy bundled us into an already overcrowded bus ...
