I found the reviews here after I booked our room and got a little worried. But, my wife and I had a great time at the Hotel San Nicolas. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel seemed well maintained (none of the grafitti mentioned in another review). And, our room was in great condition. The color scheme... More

The San Nicolas Hotel is in a dire need of an extreme makeover. The carpet in the hallway leading to our room was frayed. Our room was dirty. The carpet needed to be vacuumed. The bathroom wall tiles were also dirty. I used a towel to rub off what I thought was mildew on the shower and bathroom walls. The... More

San Nicolas was not our first choice of hotels in Ensenada but since all the other resorts were sold out we dubiously booked San Nicolas. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel and the rooms were above average - they were really big with two huge beds. The buffet breakfast on the Sunday was amazing and great...

The San Nicolas is one of the best places I have stayed in. It is a VIntage hotel with great atmosphere. The historic murals on the walls between the 3 floors shouldn't be missed. The staff was very friendly. The swimming pool is the biggest in Ensenada and the rooms very large. But I don't rercommend visiting any place in... More

This is the only hotel that had rooms on the weekend we went in July. The hotel is okay. The pool is square and average. Our room was on the first floor. It was a bit dated and smelled musty. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown. I wouldn't call it a RESORT just a decent place to stay.... More

My husband and I headed south of the border for the July 4th weekend and planned this trip a month in advance. At the time, the only hotel we could find with availability was the San Nicolas...so we made the reservation. When we got to Ensenada and found the hotel - we were deeply disappointed. San Nicolas is located well... More

My friends and I had a great time staying at the San Nicolas Resort Hotel. The swimming pool is awesome and our favorite past time was spent at sunset in the jacuzzi drinking our margaritas. The food at the restaurant was excellent, they offer a wide variety to choose from. Oh! I recomend the lobster, it was delicious!! The staff... More
