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
Very nice rooms. Fantastic location. So many extras...a must if you have a larger party! Breakfast, happy hour with appetizers, bikes, beach chairs and more. Great courtyard to congregate as a group. Such a great location.
1906 Lodge was wonderful! The hotel staff was amazing. I loved the breakfast and happy hour. The location is walking distance to the beach and lots of shopping. I also enjoyed the bicycles that we could use for biking the wonderful trails on the island. This was great value for the money. I also liked that parking was free, which is rare on the island. I will definitely visit this hotel again!
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed ourself so much.
Wonderful breakfast and wine hour and perfect location.
I wish they would not allow children under 12, though . Our last breakfast and wine hour on the second day were ruined by a screaming 5 year old by the pool that the parents just ignored. The front desk said that the inn now allows children,I really could not complain.
This is a fabulous inn, but young children are out of place in such a quiet and refined environment.
One of the best small hotels we have ever visited, with a great staff! They take care of you and offer wonderful breakfast items and the unique afternoon wine with cheese and home made items. The location is great in a quite spot but close for walking to the beach and everything on Orange Ave.
If you want to great place to stay while on Coronado Island, look no further than 1906 lodge. Complementary happy hour between 5 and 6; complementary breakfast; free parking and no resort fee. Quaint!
