Ensenada, Mexico is a city that has the most beautiful weather to enjoy. 100% recomment to visit. the hotel was very well located, room was like 2.5 stars, the pool water was not clear (I did not use) and the reception was ok.

My rating wasnt going too be that low since I fount a cockroach in my room entrance. That's when I called them to give... 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

This is a cheap and very basic accomodation. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean, but you can sleep at the Corona Hotel, which is only 150 m. away for just 10 USD more, and it is a more suitable option. The hotel is better than the ones that the Desert Inn chain has in Loreto or Guerrero... More
