    L Cordove far exceeded expectations!!! Stay here
    The room was very comfortable and spacious, more like an apartment or casita. Many shops and restaurants were within a block, the ocean beach across the street maybe 2 blocks away. Coronado islands most famous hotel right across the street. Couldn't have been better

    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.
