LOVE IT!! charming, eclectic, beautiful

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Cons: the parking was a bit sketchy. Sat pm and Sunday free, the rest of the time you had to feed meters. I understand there isn't an alternative...
Location: walk to the beach.. check out as many food places as possible. All walking distance. Go across st for sunsent on water. Drive to Imperial Beach :)
so charming. The Spanish/ceramic tile/open air hallways to the rooms. The eclectic furniture, tile bathroom... just LOVE IT. The front desk people were helpful and youthful and happy and adorable and made you smile. Pool clean, rooms clean, food great....convenient to beach!

Full of character

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Beautiful hotel with a lot of character, great location on Coronado, staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable. They cleaned floors and walkways by power washing daily! The Mexican restaurant at hotel is reputedly the best on the island (confirmed by locals!) and we have to agree! Great French creperie on site too. The restaurant is noisy, even in rooms, but they close at a decent hour, so no complaints here. Highly recommend!

Great setup for a small family!

Hotel layout makes rooms a little noisy of you have loud neighbors, but separate living room and kitchen is great!

Really cute hotel

Posted Feb 28, 2014
Pros: Really nice atmosphere.
Cons: Free breakfast was mediocre, old appliances.
Location: Beach! Anything Hotel Del
I wasn't expecting such a nice courtyard when I arrived. The apartment-style rooms are really nice, though the appliances are outdated. The refrigerator made noise at night one night, but was fixed the next day. It's really close to the beach, and much cheaper than the Hotel Del across the street!

Excellent Hotel Stay!!

Posted Feb 27, 2014
Pros: Location, Friendly Staff, and Price.
Location: Beach, Shopping, Coffee Shops, Plenty of Restaurants, Irish Pub & Coronado Playhouse
We absolutely LOVE staying at the El Cordova. It is a great value for the price and you cannot the beat the location. The staff was super helpful. Alexa helped us and she was so sweet! Parking is usually pretty easy to find..make sure you're comfortable parallel parking for it is mostly street parking that is available. We also received coupons for breakfast at the french creperie around the corner which was soo yummy! Definitely would recommend this hotel!

Great Location Close to Beach and good Restaurants

Posted Feb 3, 2014
Pros: Gardens, fountains, pool and spa. Very comfortable bed.
Cons: Windows fully functioning.
Location: Beach, The Del, lots of restaurants and shopping.
Overall we were well taken care of. This hotel is well situated for beach, proximity to the Dell, restaurants and shops. The spa went out of order for two days but they got it up and running ASAP. Great atmosphere with the tile work, fountains and colorful plants. The breakfast bar was adequate for a quick bite and coffee and the Crape Restaurant voucher was useful for delicious breakfast crapes.

Coronado's hidden jewel

Posted Jan 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Loved the location of the hotel as it was right across the street from the Del and beautiful beaches.We ate at Miguel's and the food is excellent.We also rented bikes from the little store right outside of hotel for 7 dollars an hour and did a 1hr bicycle tour of the island,had a blast and loved the scenery.Also loved the continental breakfast,and the man that does the catering gave us the complete history of the hotel,he was very informative and polite.
