“Great location, super value in a hotel that probably was king in its glory days.”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

Let me first say that I wanted to take a towel home so bad. They have these old school towels with their logo on them which are very cool looking and nostalgic of the glory days of Baja. This hotel was probably top dawg during its day and its still super nice. Has a great tile lobby with a spiral stair case and aquariams. The rooms have all been redone. The best part is the location, literally a five minute stumble home from the bar plus the hotel fully wraps around its own parking so it is totally secure.

No pool, but great location, restaurant for breakfast, comfy beds, parking, cable, tons of hot water, for 40 bucks you won't find something better, trust me I looked.

This hotel was just summed up in the one sentence description. I like this hotel because it is a great value for a clean safe, comfortable room. All rooms have balconies. There are two things that I don't like about this hotel. 1 No Pool & 2 No website to reserve rooms. All reservations are by email only. This hotel is mostly for the locals, there are very few Americans that stay here.

Reviewed 21 June 2010

We stayed over a Saturday night. The hotel has a decent appearance, not new, but not too worn either. Rooms were very "American", typical of what you'd see in most budget motels in the States. The beds were a bit on the firm side, but it didn't bother me at all(my wife is a little more picky). There was some noise, but we had our balcony door open all night, and it wasn't enough to keep us up. So fairly quite for the location.

The only weird thing is two people, even couples, have to rent a room with two beds(5 pesos more). And the beds are all queen size. For the location and price though it's a good deal.

Also, they seem to have free internet setup in the hallways, but we didn't use it, so can't confirm.

Front desk and parking attendants were very helpful. I had a migrane and we needed medicine at like 2am, front desk directed us to a pharmacy that was supposed to be open all night(was closed, apparently because there are still not enough tourists to justify long hours), but there was an Oxxo nearby with what we needed. When we got back, our parking was taken, but the attendent said to double park and leave keys at desk. They moved the car in the morning, and we picked up keys at checkout, no problems.

Stayed here for one night after moving from the backpackers. Walked in off the street and got a good price of 415p for a double room. Room was huge with massive shower. Free internet everywhere and also free wifi in the room. Location very good in the centre of town. Would def recommend.

Fresh into Mexico with broken spanish the fact that the hotel staff was speaking perfect english was very useful to get us into the swing of things. The hotel is perfectly located between the main drag for bars and restaurants on the one side and the harbour with the fishmarket and the fish taco places on the other. We had a room to the courtyard and it was very quiet - surprisingly so considering how close we were to the hopping night life. We left a cellphone in the room after we checked out and staff kept it safe until we returned to pick it up. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly for the first few nights of a Baja trip. We paid $33 for two people during weeknights and $38 on weekend
