In general this hotel needs maintenance and doesn't comply with it's rating. Water tap in shower and sink is leaking. Carpet on floors call for wearing your shoes at all times. The pool however is nice and the atmosphere in this area is relaxing and OK. The wifi was very slow.

very nice stay. It is a little tired in places, but they are remodeling now. The room was very large with a kitchen. We only stay overnight to shower and sleep and continue our drive North.The parking lot across the street is free to the hotel guest and has a 24 hour guard. Rare in Mexico.

Terrible experience, reserved two rooms and when arrived I was told "sorry we had more guests than expected and we gave the other room to someone else, but the one I have is a double, that way all 4 can still sleep here" The place is old and dirty!!!

My family and me stayed in this hotel, and we were expecting the same quality shown in photos, but reality is far from the photos. The hotel is very old, clean, but old carpets, old fashioned, old furniture. Expected more for the price. In weekends they rent the pool area, so it was very crowded and we could not get... More

We stayed in Room 303. This was an older hotel and the rooms make you feel like you just stepped back into the 1980's. It has a nice pool and two large jacuzzis. There is a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. The bar service by the pool is average. They have waitresses that take orders but they took a... More

My friend and I stayed here a few days ago on a surf trip to Baja. We were just looking for a decent place to crash in town near the action. San Nicolas was a very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and they spoke english which was convenient for me since I only speak spanish when I'm drunk (and... More

Stayed here based on TA review. We were very disappointed. Our room smelled old and musty with chipped tiles and peeling paint. We paid for two nights but left after one night. No refund. The front desk staff were not friendly. We will never stay here again.
