Should have stayed at the Del Coronadofrom A TripAdvisor Member
We had nothing but problems. I booked a partial ocean view room via the internet. The first room they gave us smelled of smoke (we asked for non-smoking). We told the hotel clerk that we could not possibly stay in that room and she told us that was the only ocean view room left.
She moved us to the pool side of the hotel directly over a trash dumpster on the first floor. The hotel staff told us that this room was the only king bed room left. Then the hotel staff would not compensate us for moving into a cheaper room (partial ocean view rooms are more expensive). After much bickering they decided to compensate us the $35.00. After all of this, half our night was over. We ate at the fancy hotel restaurant which was extemely expenisve and not that great. The pool side of the hotel is really noisy and directly above the pools.
You couldn't go on the balcony without everyone down in the pool area watching you. The customer service was below average at this hotel.
Lowe's is definately not a 4-star hotel, maybe a 3-star. Lowes's is also approximately 4 miles from any shops or restaurants, so eating out takes alot of time. Even the hotel's grounds were not that nice. There was alot of concrete and not many open tropical areas. I was not impressed with any aspect of Lowe's. The "resort" is not enchanting or classy, it is simply a regular hotel with a fat price tag. We were dissapointed by all of it. The best part of our night was the little gondola ride throught the channels of Coronado. If the Hotel Del Coronado did not have a 2 night minimum we would have stayed there.
That Hotel is simply breathtaking. As for Lowe's, I would definetly pass and stay at the Del.

Not what we exptectedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not only did they not even say hello to the kids, I had to ask for their "welcome gift", and then was told that they would have to find some. We found the check-in area to be a bit unorganized. I can't remember which building our room was in, but I remember that it was a LONG walk to the main building, where the restaurant was. The main restaurant there was pricey, and there were VERY few dining options.
The resort is WAY out of town, so driving to another location eat would have taken some time. Our room was very nice, with a large balcony and a view of the pool area, which is also very nice. The bathroom was huge, with a huge sunken tub which the kids loved. Beds were comfortable. Another disapointment was......when making the reservation I was told that they offered some fun things for the kids, such as "flick and float" where you can float on an inner-tube in the pool while watching a movie, and a marshmallow roast at the beach....which by the way is somewhere across the street and not to be seen anywhere from the resort. After we got there, we were told that those activities only happened on the weekends, and we were there during the week. The room was nice, but I was not at all impressed with the resort itself.
The location was too remote for us. If you're looking for a resort with privacy, this would be good.
Delightful Resort - Great Stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
The place was filled with a mixture of people vacationing, conferencing and fleeing fires and the hotel took care of all of them. It really seemed they cared. I'd stay there again in a second.
Great Weekend on Coronadofrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not worth the money.from A TripAdvisor Member
None of this was picked up until the morning we checked out, two full days later. One afternoon, we returned to the room to find that the beds had been made, but the sheets had not been changed since hair was still on the bed. We called maid service and they showed up at the room to explain that the sheets had been changed, they proceeded to pick the hair off the bed and said that after laundering their sheets, sometimes hair still sticks to the clean sheets. I'm not sure how they do laundry at the Loews, but my clean sheets never have hair stuck to them! The furnishings in the room were worn and the bathroom, although big, was also old. This place is not worth the money.

Top Local Tips for Coronado
Drive or get a rental car Coronado is little too far for a complimentary taxi and is too far to get a reasonable taxi- take into consideration all of the money you will save if you rent a car or simply drive to these destination.
Stay closer to the Coronado shops If you want to be able to easily walk around the shopping/restaurant area in Coronado, stay at the Hotel Del or one of the other adorable Inns/Hotels.
Shuttle bus It would be helpful to have a regular free shuttle bus to the ferry area of Coronado Bay which would pick up from the last ferry too.
