During the Baja 1000 racing events the entire Honda...

After reviewing the ratings and reviews about the Desert Inn Ensenada I was worried about booking this hotel, especially since we had two kids and a baby coming with us. Once we arrived at the hotel I was very pleased with the staff, room, outside patio/pool and location. Hotel room was very clean, outside patio and pool was clean as...

Stayed here for 2 days mid August. Temperature was HOT! Should have read the reviews first. Unfortunately Hotel San Nicolas was fully booked. We usually stay there. When we tried to make a reservation by credit card, we were told we had to pay cash at a bank in Mexico. Had our daughter pay cash in Tijuana to hold the...

When we first checked in (Saturday night), the front desk told my sister that Hotel.com had dropped her reservation, but luckily the hotel had a room available. Was told they ran out of TV remotes and air conditioning remotes. TV was operable but the...
