    Ask about noise for your room
    The Cordova is a quaint hotel with old mexico character. Because of the age of the hotel, expect some issues (musty old smells etc). It is useful to know that some of the rooms are above a restaurant. Our room happened to be above the restaurant the night they were doing their deep all night cleaning. It was terribly loud and not much sleep happened. I hated to complain, but I couldn't take that another night. The hotel front desk receptionist (Ivy) was very helpful to arrange to move us to another room where it was much quieter, at least it was until about 2:45 am when the all night cleaning crew started cleaning the AC hoods on the roof just outside my window (soooo loud!!). Again, another sleepless night!! I was ready to plead my case at the front desk again, but they were already ready for me. They had realized that the cleaning crew had been there again that night (the crew forgot to tell the hotel they would be cleaning those 2 nights) and was just outside the window of the lady (me) that didn't get sleep the night before. They bent over backwards to make things right and I did leave with a good feeling for the hotel in the end. But, I did want to mention this so that others can ask about the noise levels expected at night for the room selected. Overall a good experience and yes, I would stay there again.

    Great hotel in a great location!
    This was a great hotel in a great location! Very cute hotel in an old Spanish style. The room was a little small but had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy and I slept great! This hotel is only a block or two to the beach and is close to shops and restaurants (and there are restaurants in the hotel grounds!). The pool was a little small, but again, was all we needed and wasn't crowded. Would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone going to Coronado.

    Very Accommodating!
    The hotel accommodated last minute changes (upgrades) to our suite for the first night, and we got to stay in same suite for all three nights. Had a GREAT time in the enormous (1500 sq ft) Casa Grande suite, with plenty of room for family to spread out and enjoy our trip. Right across street from the famous Hotel Del Coronado and beautiful clean beach. The hotel staff was very helpful when we requested a toaster and regular drip coffee maker. The only one weird thing - only one bathroom, and only one roll of TP on the roll! No spares! Crazy, but easy to remedy. Will be back as often as we can make it!
