My wife and I stayed here one night during a midweek in January. We practically had the hotel to ourselves. The property was clean and located a stones throw away from shopping and restaurants. Our room decorations were very outdated but was spacious and clean which was really what we wanted anyway. I was a little uneasy at the fact... More

I stayed there on a January 1st which was very quiet. I liked the room and the desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. The a/c worked well, the neighbourhood was great. My only comment is that the walls are not as soundproof as you might like, which led to an entertaining hour of non-G-rated noises coming from the adjacent... More

Great location in tourist area one block from harbour. Good value. Restaurant was closed for renovations when we were there. Great staff. Top floor facing harbour provides great views. Take a flashlight as the hotel has a habit of shutting all hallway lights off. Lots of good restaurants within a block or two.

Have stayed here many times over many years. USD$75-200 (900-2500 M.N.) the suites are worth the increase if you will be in the room quite a bit. Cleanly maintained, secure parking and friendly bi-lingual personnel contribute to a comfortable experience. Rooms have small refrigerators, many with balconies, good lighting and generally plenty of space, although the beds are consistently a... More

The El Cid Ensenada is right on the main tourist strip in downtown Ensenada. It is just a few blocks south of the main nightlife activity. It is an easy walk to shopping, dinner, bars and the bay front. There is secured parking. My room was one of the cleanest I ever had in Baja. Staff was friendly. If you... More

This older hotel on the main tourist drag has lots of rustic Mexican charm - plenty of tile, dark wood, stained glass, wrought iron, molded stucco and artesenal work on the walls. It's a little worn - e.g. cracked tiles in places but that brings some authenticity to the place. It's far enough from the noisy bars to the north... More
