When choosing where to stay on Coronado, we had some options. One of them was the Hotel Del Coronado. A historic hotel that has appeared in TV and movies and has a reputation for providing a luxurious stay, we could have gone there. The exorbitant room rate was not what put us off of course. We just wanted to be in a different location. However, we did take a walk along the shore on that side of the island and I had to get a shot with the phone while we were there!
