Take lots of $$$$

Pros: Location, right on the beach.
Cons: Improve menu choices and prices.
Location, Location Location is what this hotel is all about. Our California Cabana room on the 3rd floor had a lovely "coastal view'. Furnishings and carpet were showing some wear. Adult pool was virtually ignored for services and the seagulls swimming in the pool and pooping are a health issue. I felt like the room charge was not overpriced but the food and drinks were WAY overpriced. The charming town is a short walk away with much better menu choices and prices. Be sure to try the Bluewater Boathouse; food and service was outstanding. Had a delicious crab and avocado salad and my entrée was local fresh blackened swordfish.

Hotel Del Coronado One night stay

Cons: The pools are boring!! And the jacuzzi is borring as well. The pools need an upgrade update!!
Love this hotel. SUPER expensive. The staff is super frinedly and nice. The prices for everything is from bottled water ($4.95) to Chips and guacamole ($18.00) is unbelievably high. I took my own beer wine champs and alcohol and saved hundreds! You can drink on the beach FYI!! Tell them it is your anniversary and they will give you a card that allows you to get free: 2 beach chairs and umbrella ($65.) 2 free drinks ($35.00) 1 chocolate bar ($10.00) Free upgrade at the spa from 30 minutes to 50 minutes

Good place but bad timing

Pros: We loved the history and the location The size of our room and balcony overlooking the shoreline was enjoyable. The spa was lovely and relaxing.
Cons: The valet could have passed on our request for another robe to housekeeping but did not. Maybe 4 (2ea) cups of coffee provided?
Location: Enjoyed poking around the myriad of shops, the marina, and discovering a very good steak all within walking distance.
Loved the Del once the sticker shock of a $30 hamburger washed down the gullet. The hotel and surrounding shops and restaurants are lovely. Our visit was poorly timed on the heels of rain, which we were told created a washout raising bacterial levels. We were able to rent an umbrella and chairs, of course, but not allowed in the ocean...for days...our entire stay! It fringed on an overbearance of authority that took away the joy of "swim at your own risk". I can swim in a pool at home. The spa is recommended! Room service was prompt and delivered the food hot. We did have to call housekeeping and wait a while for a second robe and any facecloths. Other than those inconveniences, we enjoyed our stay and WALKS along the shore.

Old Reliable

We have been coming here for over 40 years. It is our little home away from home in such a great town and climate. The personnel have always been very friendly. The Del is a little pricey but well worht it.

Best Vacation Ever

I started coming here in the 70s, so after going to Comic Con, we stayed at the Del and had an ocean view room in the Victorian building. The rooms have been updated but the charm is still there. Every one was friendly and the staff made us feel at home. This is our choice of vacation spots, and will be back next year to continue our tradition.........

Great vacation

Cons: Noisy
This was a wonderful vacation. It was everything I had planned. The hotel was really nice. My only complaint would be that I was not aware of them charging me $150.00 per day for incidentials and what wasn't used would be credited back to my account with 5 to 7 days. Also, the room servce was not always correct and waiting for it to be corrected the meals got cold. And thou no fault of the hotel you could hear other people/kids in the hallways. And be prepared to pay for the meals they were very expensive. But really a wonderful trip!

Everything you need within walking distance

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: daily parking rate $30
This is the 6th time we have stayed at the Del. Our room was in the Victorian building. We requested a room with a balcony and one was available facing the inner courtyard. It was very relaxing to sit out there and read the paper. Our room was recently remodeled. The best part was the mini bar was emptied out and we had a place to keep beverages and food cold. The clean modern furniture was a nice change. The location of the hotel is easy walking distance to many restaurants.
