A safe, clean and cute/funky motel with a great restaurant and good food. Atmosphere is a whale history and a gateway to whale watching. staff speaks a little English and you speak a little Spanish and all works very well. The restaurant is outstanding with all ages of wines. Great food.

Clean, quaint motel with friendly, knowledgeable staff. Free WiFi and coffee making facility in room. Nice, adjoining souvenir shop. Motel recommended. Not much to do in Guerrero Negro outside the whale watching season. Town itself is dirty and rather dull.

Stood motel in Guerrero Negro for about $45 c per night. Good air con, strong water pressure, hot water. Has a fairly good restaurant attached to it with a pleasant, partially shaded eating area outside. Wifi is quite good in the bar area, not so good elsewhere, non-existent in our room. 16, 17,and 18 are the biggest. Good beds, firm,... More

By now, you know I'm a business traveler, for the most part, but, once in a while I come across a place where I want to comeback with family or friends, that's Malarrimo. Very well located, good restaurant, rooms with or without AC, your choice, good wifi and great service.

Went down to Guerrero Negro with the family for whale watching and stayed at this hotel. It was well recommended as the best place in town. After walking around the town based on the other places I saw I would confirm this. It has been here for a while and is a bit rustic in a nice way. The place... More

Yes, a little dated but secure and clean with decent (most of the time) beds. The restaurant is one of the best in central Baja, just be sure to ask the waiter what seafood is fresh. Breakfasts are also good.

We had reservations for 2 rooms and when we arrived the motel clerk had everything in order. The rooms, while not the most spacious, were clean and comfortable. We were there, afterall, not to stay in the room, but to see the whales and other local sites! There is a very nice outdoor patio area where you can visit and... More

The room was way too small for 3 people. I had to crawl on my knees to get into bed. We asked for a wake-up call that never came. Thank God that was our back up. We asked that they leave the room untouched. They did not. We had medical equipment in so we did not want it cleaned, it... More

We had 10 in our group, 8 stayed in the motel and 1 couple stayed in the RV park. The head motel clerk seemed challenged and scattered when it came to who was in which room. Eventually we all received rooms and beds. The rooms were clean and spacious. The showers and Banos were good as well. The cost for... More

Crowded room, TV the size of a computer, not enough water pressure for a shower, HARD bed. Food in restaurant was good, but the waiters kept screwing the orders up. Brought wrong items, or things we didn't order.
