We never thought we would stay here. It was really a coincidence that the tollway was closed and we were on our wine tasting trip. The hotel was introduced to us by one of the wineries we visited. We took their word and we never regretted our choice. Since it was weekday, the hotel was not busy. The people at... More

Our toilet was really close to wall and when you use it almost hit the wall with your face. We paid 80 a night , I'm sure there is better... More

As first-time visitors of Ensenada, we wanted to make sure that we had the best views possible- staying at Villa Marina definitely achieved that goal. But despite its reasonable price, I cannot give a better rating as the hotel itself is outdated in every possible way. The hotel is in a central location, within walking distance to many of Ensenada's... More

I could have found a more upscale hotel it is true. But I want the view only offered by a high rise hotel. And this was it! The first night I spent on the city side of the Hotel, on the 5th floor. Watched the lights come on all over town, most of which has sprawled up three main hills.... More

It is an dated hotel, the decor of the late 70's and the room pretty worn looking. I wasn't expected a whole lot, but was expecting the bathroom shower to be much cleaner than it was. Too much mildew and the room carpet didn't feel clean. One of two elevator (very small) did not land properely on any floor, something... More

It is an old hotel and one of the tallest buildings in Ensenada. I was surprised by the night life of this small port of Baja California. Surrounded by deserts and majestic mountains Ensenada is an oasis of fun and entertainment. This property is located near the main tourist avenue and surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants. Recommended for stays... More

We stay at this hotel 2 or 3 times a year for weekends away to enjoy Ensenada. Each time we've found excellent staff, extremely clean rooms (and believe me, we've traveled all over Baja) and in general truly like staying here. I don't think people who go here would be the ones griping about english-speaking TV! I would recommend this... More

The Hotel while not a five star is a nice place. No robbers, thieves or other vipers. I been in the "Marina" twice before and am going again with a forward look next month. Always have had a enjoyable stay.
