Dating from 1906, this petite B&B on Coronado Island has a traditional style but all the mod cons. The 17 guestrooms are individually designed with homey accents from the patterned throw pillows and fabric-shade table lamps to the dark wood dressers and framed photographs of local landmarks. Amenities vary from room to room, with gas fireplaces and deep soaking tubs in some, and private patios and wet bars in others, but all have private tile bathrooms with over-tub or standalone showers. Continental breakfast is served in the Arts and Crafts–style dining room each morning, with homemade specialties like carrot cake pancakes and baked eggs Florentine, plus cereals, toast and fruit. Snacks and soft drinks are served daily at 5 p.m. There’s no gym but guests receive a discount at the Gym in Coronado just across the street, or have access to the inn’s colorful cruiser bicycles for exploring the island.
In the Area
Just across the bay from San Diego, Coronado Island is a destination for beach time, surfing and watersports. Just two blocks from the inn, Glorietta Bay is set up with sail and powerboat rentals, and there’s a paved boardwalk for long strolls, which are especially romantic at sunset. Don’t miss a visit to the storied, 150-year-old Hotel del Coronado (ask about the $15, 75-minute tour) or borrow a bicycle and explore the island’s 15 miles of bike paths. Many of the island’s best restaurants are within a few blocks of the inn, so ask for a recommendation, or take your pick from the many eateries along Orange Avenue.
How to Get There
Great location. Just two blocks off of Orange Avenue close to the beach by the Del Coronado. Quiet. We stayed in the "Trolley" room. Very clean. Nice fireplace if you want to soak in the over-sized jetted tub, Balcony that overlooks garden area with two large chairs. Two reading chairs inside. Plenty of drawers for clothes. Small refrigerator. Coffee maker (Keurig) with small sink.
Breakfast was tasty with enough choices to get day started. They also have a wine hour with snacks. Underground secured garage.
We walked to dine out. Just a great place to stay in a quiet area near dining and beach.
We love Coronado Island. We were married there at sunset on the first day of spring and have returned several times since. This was the first time we actually stayed on the island. The 1906 Lodge was absolutely perfect, picturesque, ideally located for walking to great restaurants, shopping and the beach. Staff was so gracious and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. We have already recommended it to several people and hope to stay again on our next trip to San Diego.
Great choice! You will not be disappointed. Room was very spacious, and exactly what was promised. Staff could not have been more accommodating or friendly! Food was delicious. On-site parking a bonus. We used the bikes and beach chairs. Very close to everything Coronado.
Loved it here. Felt at home and the parking garage was huge! Good food, wine, coffee and adorable sitting area. Will definitely stay here again! Easy walking to everything including hop on hop off trolly and restaurants.
Spent four nights as a base for a San Diego vacation. The upstairs Garden Room was fantastic - enjoyed the privacy, bed, fireplace, vibe. Breakfasts were awesome. Great location. People were REALLY nice. One of the highlights of our trip!
