I stayed here by myself with a dog in November 2014.I changed my room from the downstairs to the upstairs one. I found my new room quiter, with more sun and I could see the cruiseships docked in the bay. It came with breakfast which was across the street and real nice. While it wasn't real 'free' the choices and... More

I was visiting Ensenada on business travelling with my son and my host in Mexico had selected and made the booking. Having looked at some of the reviews on Tripadvisor, I was a little worried what it would be like but was actually very pleasantly surprised. Breakfast had been prebooked for us in the restaurant over the road and the... More

Looks like a mexican motel, you get a discount for the breakfast at the "Rey Sol" french-mexican restaurant across the street. Good location, good breakfast, and rooms are clean. This is a good value specially if you arrive to Ensenada for the first time.

We stayed in room 112 and I was shocked that they even rented the room. The drapes were falling off the rod, the floor was dirty, the shower tile was cracked substantially and the shower door didn't fit well and there was leakage and mold in the corner.

I have stayed here numerous times over the past 20 or so years, and was always willing to pay the higher than normal rates, because the property was reliably impeccable, with obvious attention to maintenance details, unlike some other nearby hotels. This time I was disappointed. Right after we registered and went out to the elevator, I saw dirt bulld-up... More

This was an ok place, a bit outdated, dirty carpet with a loud a/c unit.
