1902 mansion converted into a charming "Spanish Village" with 40 guest rooms, three restaurants and 12 boutique shops. The hotel is located across from the Hotel Del Coronado and only one block to the beach!

Very Pleasant Stay

El Cordova was great, and my stay (3 nights for a conference at the Hotel Del Coronado) was very pleasant. The rooms are spacious and have a separate dining/kitchen area. The staff was great, and overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Perfect spot

The hotel and staff were very friendly and helpful to any request or need. Miguel's was a wonderful spot for dinner just steps from our door and made every evening welcoming. We would definately stay here again.

Recent family trip

My girlfriend and her two kids and I spent a very enjoyable night quite recently at the Cordova Hotel. It's right across from the Coronado Hotel. As busy and as hectic as the downstairs area is (restaurant, etc.) it was very quiet at night. I thought the noise might keep us up, however it didn't. The staff could be a bit more attentive, however I would go back there.

Wedding

Wonderful hotel with a lot of character. Our friends stayed at the Del which was a lot more expensive. This hotel is right across the street. Even though there was hotel particular parking we were able to find a place on the street quite easily. We stayed in the one bedroom suite, it was like a small apartment, fully furnished and with dishes and cookware.

Nice stay on Coronado

We were there for two nights and wanted to be close to the beach. The place has a lot of character and history. There is a restaurant mixed in throughout the hotel, and I could hear a lot of noise in my room, but I carry earplugs so it wasn't a problem anyway. The restaurant closes at 10PM and opens at lunchtime, so it wasn't a big deal to us. The food at Miguels was good, so at least you can have a nice meal in the courtyard right outside your room. It is a short stroll down the street for whatever your needs or if you want to go to the beach, it is right there by the Hotel Del Coronado across the street.

Miguels was very good. Brigandine was good for happy hour. Leroy's had ok food but was way overpriced for what you get.

The most amazing staff

I don't have time to write a full review, but the staff at El a Cordova absolutely blew us away, so they simply must be acknowledged. I don't think I have ever had such a positive experience with a hotel. We had plenty of complicated issues that came up in our travels, and it didn't matter which clerk we worked with; every single staff member went out of their way to make our stay special. Everything else was great too. Phenomenal location, great ambiance, nice room,comfy bed, etc., but the quality of service is what made this place an unbelievably great place to stay.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

You can ask the front desk anything. A friend of ours that wasn't even a guest got treated like royalty when she needed help - and after we had already checked out! It's a level of service I don't think I've ever seen anywhere else. Truly inspiring.

Perfect Location, Perfect Price, Perfect Getaway!

This hotel was perfect for our little family getaway. The hotel is a Spanish Style, in the perfect location. It is across the street from the famous Hotel. My husband and I were looking for a budget friendly yet clean Hotel. I'm so glad we stumbled on this one on an advisory travel website. We were allowed early checkin and late checkout. When we got to the Hotel we asked for a bottom floor room because we have a 9 month old and didn't want to hassle the stairs. They didn't have any available yet they did upgrade us to a suite, which was perfect for us (living room, kitchen, stove, fridge). The stairs weren't too bad because hubby and I took turns to get our things up and down, the staff kindly helped us transport our things up and down also. Not a lot of stairs, just one flight. The room was clean and smelled great. The pool was right outside our room as well. The noise level was low and the bedroom was in great condition. The location of the room was perfect, it was just about 2 blocks from the beach. A lot of shops were right down the main street (Orange) as well. A well known Creamery was just a few feet away as well, great Ice Cream shop. The negatives were that yes the doors we're weather proofed it seemed, small openings of light peered through. I just put a towel at the bottom of the door and it was good.

You can find great little shops on the other side of the island, Lil Piggy's is decent if you're not looking for fast food and would like decent BBQ.
