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...

This hotel is in a good location and is quite reasonably priced. Very important that you ask for a room in the back, as the street noise level is high. Shower was OK, plenty of hot water with moderate pressure. Decor was dated but interesting. Carpet was old and weird, not really dirty, but not really clean. Nice flat screen... More

My business partner and I had to stay in Ensenada for a conference and the main hotel was booked so we ended up here. The staff were hospitable, though there was some confusion about our 3rd party booking through a travel website. Aside from that, we found the place to be adequate with the rooms quite spacious. Parking was good... More

Stayed at El Cid over New Years. Staff was friendly, helpful. Room was spacious, small balcony over the street. The room itself was dated, could use updating. Carpet a bit skeevy, sheets had stains on them. Very strange artwork in my room-framed folded Mexican blanket with sheets of scotch taped together construction paper as the background. They did change the... More
