Situated across the street from the famed "Hotel Del," the Glorietta Bay Inn often gets billed as the poor man's version of the grande dame, but this 11-room charmer has much to recommend it. It's substantially less expensive than its fancy neighbor, it offers free Wi-Fi and breakfast, and it doesn't nickel-and-dime with resort fees (the Del charges for all of the above). The former home of San Diego land baron John D. Spreckels, the lushly landscaped property is situated right on the bay, within walking distance to Coronado's shops and cafés. There are two sections: Opt for the historic 1920s mansion with its original brass cage elevator, marble staircase, and guest rooms brimming with antiques and nostalgia; the newer, motel-style buildings are decidedly less charming. The downside of the older rooms? Smaller and slightly dingy bathrooms, which would benefit from a spruce-up. Still, the exceptionally friendly service (waiters remember your name and the kind of scone you like at breakfast) keeps Glorietta Bay Inn fans coming back.—Audrey Davidow
