Historic Interest

In 1906, Spreckels, 53, contracted Architect Harrison Albright to design and build the Mansion. The building, designed with the simple, classic lines of Italian Renaissance, was complete in 1908 with six bedrooms, three baths, a parlor, dining room and library at the cost of $35,000. At that time, Spreckels' Mansion featured a brass cage elevator, a marble staircase with leather-padded handrails, skylights, marble floors and some of the Island's most spectacular gardens. The home was built with reinforced steel and concrete, an earthquake precaution Spreckels insisted upon after living through the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

Fabulous Location

This property is just lovely and perfectly located right across from the Del Hotel and one block from the infamous Boat House Restaurant. Glorietta Bay has a wonderful staff that attended to every request with urgency and a smile. They even came to our room to open a particularly difficult bottle of wine! The Continental breakfast in "the mansion" was plentiful and the seating (both indoors and outdoors on the terrace) gave you opportunities to eat alone or mingle with other guests. The property is clean and well maintained. I'd recommend it to singles, couples and families with children. Their pool was active with little ones having a blast. Thank you to Claudia and her team for a wonderful weekend!

The Coronado Boat House Restaurant has changed it's name to the 1887 On The Bay. I highly recommend their Happy Hour which boasts all of the great appetizers at a discount, along with fabulous cocktails and a view you can't beat from their second level. It is less than a block from the hotel and an easy walk.

Fabulous location & Great Service

Had a wonderful weekend stay at this delightful inn! Located across the street from The Del and within walking distance of several great restaurants, this was the perfect getaway! The service, as always, was amazing. Kudos to the entire management team (Claudia, Mike & Tim) for making us so comfortable and accommodating my mom who needed a handicap-accessible room. The complimentary breakfast and welcome bottle of wine made the visit exceptional. I'll be visiting again.
