I found this hotel to be quite nice and reasonably priced. The room felt spacious and the shower was awesome. It was hot and high pressure. This was a great launching point to see the whales in Magdelena Bay, and they help set up the tour. While it wasn't high class, it was perfectly within our budget.

The best thing about Hotel Brennan is setting up the whale excursion with Enrique! The accommodations are quite comfortable. I had a queen sized bed with what seemed to be a recently upgraded bathroom. The t.v.'s English speaking channels did not come in, but that was not a big deal. The building in general can be a bit noisy as...

We has an excellent day with Enreique, arranged through the Hotel Brennan. He had answers to all of our questions and got us up to pet the whale. You can tell he loves his work, happy and enjoying himself.

We went to San Carlos to see the whales. It was a wonderful experience!!! Hotel Brennan is very clean and the guide Enrique was excellent! I highly recommend this place. Contact the hotel directly and ask for whale watching tours. They are the best!!! I touched the baby whale twice :),it was awesome!

The hotel is very old but I think the owners are trying to add extras to it. The lady that checked us in did not speak English but she was very nice and we figured it out. We had breakfast the next morning and it was good.

This is a basic hotel with no frills. What it scores on is cleanliness, friendly staff, cool breezy rooms and a convenient location for walking into town or organising a whale watching trip with Enrique (highly recommended if you get an opportunity. He is an expert sailor, really knows the water, and respects the whales and their babies). The owner...

If you plan on coming here for whale watching this a pretty good over night stay. Very basic but very clean, hot showers and a comfortable bed. If you ask for room 6 or 7 there are little juliet balconies. A very friendly little town.

We have been seeing whales in front of our house in San Jose del Cabo for weeks, Wanting to get up close and personal with them, we drove 6 hours to Magdalena Bay and stayed at the friendly, though Spartan, Hotel Brennan. We should have done our homework! Humpbacks, which we see in San Jose apparently migrate earlier than Gray...

Not much to choose from in this area but the hotel was clean, unfortunately there was a party going on there the night we stayed probably because there was a big wedding in town, but oh well what are you going to do, we did stop by the hotel Alcatraz for dinner and liked that place better as far as...

I recently stayed two nights at Hotel Brennan when I came to see the mother and baby whales in late February early March. The hotel is clean. The room was nice and it was also quiet for sleeping. Because it was booked up by guys who were on a Baja dunebuggy (not sure if that's what it's called) trip, we...

“The suite across the street is suitable for a couple of guys. It's equipped with a kitchen, a coffee pot and dishes. The rest of it is rather spartan. I'm sure it would be ok if you're going there to ride the dune buggies. Breakfast is served next door to the hotel, which I thought was a nice convenience.”
