This short list of Coronado beach resort and hotel properties can help you narrow down the ideal place for your beach vacation getaway. Coronado's close proximity to downtown San Diego makes it ideal for for either spending time on the beach, visiting city attractions, or both!
Coronado is a gorgeous place to visit made even better if you stay over. The arrival is dramatic, whether by the long arched bridge or ferryboat. Most of the island feels like a little resort town, with the historic Hotel del Coronado as the crowning jewel.
The small town feel is accentuated by charming restaurants and cafes. It is about a 15 minute drive to the San Diego Zoo or Sea World, and 20 minutes to the Mexican border.
