    I’ll come back!
    I liked everything about El Cordova except no elevator. I should have checked before I booked about the elevator. Everyone was wonderful; excellent location-/right on the free trolley line.

    Loved Staying here!
    Great location! Easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Loved Staying on the island and at this hotel!
    David, us2 night romance trip
    Very Good 8.0
    The hotel is in a great location with tons of restaurants and shops within nearby walking distance. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. The room is nice with a comfy bed, hot shower, and even a full kitchen. Garage parking nearby for $20 is actually a good deal for San Diego. My only real complaint is the layout of the hotel, the rooms have thin walls and surround the restaurant so you literally walk through the restaurant waiting area up some stairs to your room. You can hear everything happening downstairs at the restaurant including the morning prep. Would be a 5 star experience other than this but if you don't plan on being in the room much and need a nice clean place in the perfect location than this is the spot for you.

    Good 6.0
    Nice experience with some limitations
    Hotel is located across from the Hotel Del and has a front row seat on Orange Ave with many shops and restaurants. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I found my room to be rather stuffy and smelled old. Not sure why because everything appeared to be newly furnished. Because of the age of the building you may get large suites with very small bathrooms. Not a problem unless you spend a lot of time getting ready. Note they do not have elevators and the stairs are extremely narrow and steep. Hard to carry even the smallest carryon case without a fear of falling(especially if you are an older person). Street parking is iffy unless you have handicap tag. Otherwise it is down the street at the B of A parking lot $20 per night.
