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
We were pleased with the Lodge and the comfort of the bed all except the pillows, one way flat and the other very lumpy.Innkeepers were very helpful, obviously bery busy wearing more than one hat.Grounds are nice around the bubbling waterfall! Breakfast was buffet style to suit almost everybody.Location was great.
This is my fourth visit to the 1096 Lodge. Very relaxing and calming place to stay. I visit Coronado by myself and feel very safe. The Inn Keepers are very friendly and warm. When you arrive in your room you are greeted with a welcoming card. The breakfast are very good and hardy for a day of site seeing.
This little hotel was so tranquil and relaxing. The location is central, the breakfast was delicious, the rooms were very clean and the sheets were amazingly soft. It was a nice surprise to learn about the free bikes for guests and even nicer when we saw that they were new and great quality. We will always stay at the 1906 Lodge when we visit Coronado.
We have stayed twice now at the 1906 Lodge on Coronado Island and have throughly enjoyed each time. It is a beautiful place with a lovely breakfast and "Happy Hour" each day. We enjoy that it is a short walk to Coronado beach and it is an easy bus ride to the walk-on ferry that goes to the waterfront of San Diego. The rooms are very nicely decorated and quiet. It is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway.
My wife and I stayed here over the Thanksgiving weekend for five nights. This was a great find for us and we loved our stay at the 1906 Lodge. We stayed in a smaller room and one of their most budget friendly. We couldn't have been happier.
The room and entire lodge was spotless, clean, and very well appointed.
The lodge itself is two short blocks from Coronado Beach and just one block from Orange Avenue which is the area with shops, restaurants, etc. Check out Miguel's Cantina just steps away from the Lodge for a great Mexican dinner or breakfast.
Highlights of the 1906 Lodge include:
- Free Morning Breakfast. Breakfast was fantastic and not your typical hotel breakfast.
- There is a small breakfast area, a small lounge area, and a spot around a reflecting pool that makes this small lodge a great place to relax and find some quiet in your life.
- Free underground parking
- The host is amazing and each day at 5pm there is a happy hour with wine and appetizers
Don't hesitate to stay here. It is quiet, relaxing, and the best value for the dollar! If we ever return to Coronado, we will be back!!
