This would be our second trip to Coronado, California. This time around we elected to choose the Best Western Plus Suites Hotel on Coronado Island, Orange Avenue. We usually book an airbnb yet found the amenities of the Best Western to be attractive.
Our decision to book here was based on location, pricing, parking arrangements, and complementary breakfast. We were assigned a very comfortable room tucked away on an outside corner of the building, second floor. We found our room equipped with a King-sized bed, large bathroom, private patio, wide screen TV, black-out drapes, and top quality linens, bedding, and towels.
Being breakfast people, we looked forward each day to the wonderfully prepared breakfast choices; waffles, eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, cereals, breads, rolls, juices, coffee, yogurt and more. The kitchen staff worked hard to ensure that the breakfast fare was replenished quickly. I must say that their coffee was some of the best I have had in a long time. Their breakfast room was set up adjacent to the various food self-help tables. An open air patio was also available for breakfast and was located just outside of the food area. More than ample tables and chairs were found every morning. With the exception of one day, we had breakfast every day at the hotel.
On several occasions I had to interact with management for acquiring travel info at the front desk. Hotel reps were more than pleased to assist me with responding to my questions all of which I found quite refreshing. A free bus shuttle stops 1/2 block away from the hotel and will take you all the way down Orange Avenue towards all of the many shops and restaurants; a great way to get around!
During the week, we hardly moved our car from the garage. We did take a beautiful drive over the Coronado Bride into San Diego for dinner. Other day trips included the Hop-On, Hop-Off trolley which stops at all of the various towns in Coronado Island and is highly recommended. We also used Uber and found them to be very helpful.
The Best Western is very close to the famous Hotel Coronado and the ocean. It's also centrally located to many retail shops and restaurants along Orange Avenue. Again, we enjoyed the proximity of the hotel to these amenities which was the primary reason we booked it.
It must be noted that Housekeeping did a splendid job of making up and cleaning our room each day; they were meticulous with their work! Wi-Fi could use some improvement as we encountered difficulty in connecting. Otherwise, the Best Western Plus Suites Hotel Coronado is highly recommended for those needing to relax in a great location when touring the area. less
