We stayed for a week at 1697 and ate every night in the restaurant. My 2 favourite dishes Italian and Mexican on the same menu. We had wonderful evenings with the hosts Norma, Kieran and Patricio. Have recommended all our friends on their next trip to Mexico to visit the Baja.

The owner Kieran greeted us and gave us a quick lay of the land. The place smelt recently decorated and was clean and well kept with a comfy double bed and good shower. No WI-FI found, TV... More

You cannot beat the location of this tiny two-room hotel adjoining the popular 1697 restaurant. It's located in the northeast corner of the main Plaza overlooking the bandstand, where you can s patio and watch it on your veranda and watch the world go by. Both Loreto Centro and the malecon are just blocks away. Secure private parking behind the... More

Loved staying here. Nice clean rooms and really pretty. Simple but charming. We enjoyed the location because we could walk everywhere in town. The restaurant attached to the hotel serves the best salads and pizza. Everything about our stay was super pleasant.

The rooms were clean and located just of the main square. The location is handy for cafes and has a charming restaurant. We were... More

The room was very nice good size and super clean, nicely renovated. The room has a great patio just on the corner of the square. Our hosts were very friendly we ended up there for a couple of nights. Good internet access as well. I would recommend it.

1697 currently has only two rooms but it makes up for it's small size in character! It is only steps away from (in my opinion) the two most lovely spots in Baja - down town Loreto and the Loreto Malecon. 1697 has a sort of European "Pension" feel to it, because the rooms have private patios and look out onto...
