Clean rooms, a little noisy if you get a room close to the street. People working there is nice the bad thing is that they don't have elevator so you have to carry your suitcases all the way up (or down depending). They give you coffee and some fruit or cookies in the mornings. Location is the best thing of... More

We were three adult couples traveling from Texas - we met at the San Diego Airport, rented a minivan (we purchased Mexican insurance) and drove to Ensenada BCN, Mexico. Border crossing into Mexico was quick and uneventful, beautiful ocean views on the drive to Ensenada. Hotel is a well kept older building, rooms clean with a/c. Rooms with street view... More

Location is the biggest advantage of this hotel. Its on the happening place in town- reasturants/ shopping / pubs all on the same road. Safe locality- Rooms are good- comfortable-, disadvantage- music/ noise from near by hang out, which can go up to 1 am, AC- was too noisy, and force of water in upper floors is a concern. Wifi...

It took more than thirty minutes for them to get us checked in to our four rooms (nobody else in the lobby). Why so long? Upon arriving at the room, the refrigerator was warm and not working. The desk sent Gustavo (the only good thing about this hotel) up and he found it unplugged.....but it was never going to be... More

This is pretty much what you would expect in an American hotel chain in a foreign country. It is like being in the States.........and if that is what you want then this is the place for you. It is a nice hotel, but if lacks a Mexican 'flavor.

El Cid is conveniently located in downtown area, close to restaurants and within walking distance to main pier. Place is dated and could use a facelift; but staff makes you feel at home with a 'can do' attitude for anything you require. Not an upscale place, but definitively a good option for a few nights or business trips.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was spacious and overlooked the street; however that meant it was very noisy, especially at night. The decor was dated but had all the necessities - fridge, storage space, A/C (which was also old and noisy). The beds were comfortable & the towels fine. Shower had decent pressure & lots of hot...
