The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are adequate, nothing to write home about. Hotel is very old but that's part of it's charm. I did let the front desk know, when checking out, that they needed to add another mirror in the room. Maybe one on the back of the closet door. There was only one mirror, it...

Filled with charm and large rooms, this is a great choice for people who want to stay in the heart of Coronado, especially if they are traveling with a family of friends, or staying for an extended period of time. While the area is expensive, the rates here for the size of the rooms was great. They have a small...

I love El Cordova because the location is excellent. You can walk to beach and alot of shopping and food close by. All the people are really nice and it is totally relaxing. Nice breakfast every morning down in the courtyard.

The service was wonderful. People at the front desk were so very friendly and courteous. The cleaning service was so very polite and went out of the way to be accommodating. The location was so very convenient to every business on Orange Avenue.

Wasn't impressed with the room, very noisy. Left item after trip, gave credit card to have it shipped back, was promised would be sent within 2 days. It has been over a week and hotel staff still has not shipped out our left-behind item. Extremely frustrating staff.

The only difficulties were carrying large luggage up steps to room and trying to find street parking--no lot. Lovely setting & the courtyard was convenient for our guests for the rehearsal dinner & the brunch buffet after the wedding.

This hotel was fine and was exactly what we needed for a nice Babymoon to Coronado, but doesn’t stand out as special. The Pros: really great price for this area of San Diego and awesome location.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and were desperate to find an alternative for the remainder of our stay. To be fair, the staff and location are great.
