Another place just up the street from the Hotel del Coronado is the Villa Capri Motel.


Park your '57 Cadillac right in front, grab a Mai Tai,and walk your French Poodle out to the pool. Just be back in your room in time to watch Gunsmoke. (yes, our friendly photographer has a very keen sense of the imagination)
