El Rancho Motel
Great little motel, lovely room and very friendly staff. The pull out bed was a little uncomfortable but would highly recommend staying here. Great location in Coronado and only a short hop on ferry or taxi to mainland.

El Rancho Motel
Very nice place. The shower in the economy was a little small, but overall was a very nice stay.

Rated higher than it should be
It is what it is. It served our needs for 10 hours. Just a small little by aglow with no frills. Coronado is beautiful place and this is nice and cheap. Parking is horrible and hard to get a hold of the staff during certain hours. Thought it was very unsafe that we checked I at 8 pm and there was a note stating that our to room was open and our key was on the bed. It was clean though, and I only needed it for one night.

I had my doubts about this place after reading reviews. I loved my room and the location was amazing. real bargain and gem on Coronado. There was no service, key in envelope and it is showing some sign of age. The room was immaculate

An adorable hotel with great service that was kind enough to accommodate my husband who was coming into port (Navy) a day earlier than expected. Even though they were sold out (as well as all the others in the area), they were kind enough to find a way so he could change his reservation day! A hero for heroes! Thank you so much. ~ Rosetta
