It is a great value hotel, you get a free breakfast in its french-mexican restaurant. And is strategically located far enough from the bars so you don't have any trouble sleeping with loud music. The staff is very courteous. If you want to go to the beach it is sort of away, you need to take your car to make...

When we travel to Baja California Sur we stay at this hotel on the return trip. Not what you would expect in the States but for Baja it is a nice place to stay. The parking lot is on the small side if you have a large vehicle. Beds are comfortable. The restaurant is French Mexican cuisine. The food is...

We were staying at a hotel nearby with a group of volunteers for a project we do in Ensenada. But we heard this place was great for a fast pass back into the US, so we decided to try one night here. So glad we made the switch! Rooms are bigger and cleaner than the other place. Staff was very...

Reviewed 29 January 2013

Great place. Amazing breakfast (real white table cloth breakfast included). More of a motel (all external rooms) than a hotel. Definitely not high class by American standards, and there were little broken things throughout the room and the hotel, but really great nonetheless. It feels like a worn out hotel that is past its glorious prime, but keeps up the...

We chose this hotel because we saw pictures of the room and they all looked very nice. The room we got was not at all like the pictures we saw. It was very rustic and smelled so much like it had been cleaned with bleach, that my throat started to burn. I DO NOT suffer from asthma but I'm sure...

Dear travelnut61 First of all, we regret that your stay at our hotel was not the best, as we try to keep our rooms in excellent condition in both appearance and comfort. Also, our rooms are exactly as they are shown on the websites, but since we are a boutique hotel, none of our rooms are alike, hence, your room...

The attention to detail is impressive! It is an old property but very well kept, clean and comfortable. The price included a basic but delicious breakfast in the classic 65 year old restaurant. Their French pastries are to die for. Great front desk staff.
