Nice hotel for families but loud

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Overall enjoyed our stay at El Cordova. The free parking was street parking. Got locked out on the balcony when my daughter shut the door. The noise from the adjoining room with a baby was very loud all night, our friends were closer to the restaurant which they said was loud until about 10 pm.

Noisy

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Our room was directly beside a Mexican restaurant with a loud outdoor patio and it sounded like it was in our hotel room until well after 10 PM. The rooms are accessible from the street level which means less security since anyone can access your door. We had a drunk guy banging on our door at 1:30 AM. Not at all what we were expecting from the website pictures. We won't be returning.

Hot

Posted Sep 8, 2017
The first day we came in all the windows were shut, no fans were on and are room was 90 degrees, we turned on all the fans tried to get the air conditioner going and could get it down to 85 at its lowest. We opened all the windows and used the fans and that made things bareable during the day. A storm came through two of the four days, so that helped but it was so hot! Other than that awesome place, awesome location awesome staff, they clean your room at like 4 which is weird, but other than that I really liked the place.

Unique hotel with style

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Charm and Spanish style uniqueness. Close proximity to the beach and downtown activities.
Cons: Have a mini fridge and microwave in the rooms and maintain the plumbing.
Location: Centrally located by the Coronado del Mar, beach, restaurants, bars and shopping.
My husband and I enjoyed staying here during our two night Coronado trip. The hotel staff were nice and accommodating. The room (deluxe queen) was small but nice and comfy with the Spanish style I liked when I booked the hotel. There was not a fridge or microwave so we called and they brought us a fridge (micro not necessary) free of charge. The a/c unit was in the open closet and worked very well. The TV had several channels and the view of the garden was nice. The pool was clean and inviting (we used it once). A little noisy since we were near the pool, but we were upstairs so not too bad. There were two popular restaurants adjacent to the hotel. The only negatives were that parking cost $20 per night to park in the nearby Bank of America garage, our toilet ran, and the bathtub was clogged, but we didn't even complain about that... no huge deal. Oh, and there was a spider in our room. Yikes! The hubby killed it after I screamed. I would recommend this hotel for its charm and uniqueness, affordability, pool, and proximity to the beach and downtown area.

Hi Alison - Thank you so much for your fantastic review, and for your feedback! I appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our beautiful little gem on Coronado. While not all rooms have a fridge and microwave, we do offer larger suites that have separate kitchens and living areas, so maybe try one of those next time! They are great for a family vacation, or just for a quick getaway. Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you again very soon! Tim DeGroot General Manager El Cordova Hotel

they tried their best

Posted Jul 12, 2017
Pros: location
Location: beach and walking distance to restaurants
Once they moved me to another room than my first, which was located on top of their very loud restaurant, my stay was excellent. I appreciated their willingness to try to improve my situation after I complained. I will go back again for sure.

Cozy hotel in a great part of Coronado.

Posted Jun 28, 2017 on Orbitz
Great spot that is close to shops and restaurants in Coronado. Only downfall is there is a bit too much noise coming from the restaurant. But, that restaurant can be a benefit too as it is on the property and has a great outdoor patio.
