Nothing fancy but a solid neat and clean experience. Walking distance to some great restaurants and major Ensenada attractions. And across the street from "THE" place to stay in Ensenada if you want to spend more money OR just have a GREAT breakfast (place they hold the Baja 1000 award celebration). During the Baja 1000 racing events the entire Honda... More

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... More

Made my reservations with Kayak.com had no problems with Kayak. My sister made reservations with Hotel.com. 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... More
