This hotel is in downtown and close to all the action and restaurants. Clean and hotel staff is helpful. The rooms are not noise protected so you can hear everything happening outside. But good hotel for bucks spent.

Rooms were mostly clean and not a bad deal for $42 USD per room. Pros: Beds are comfortable Cost effective Felt very... More

Was quite disappointed by my recent stay at the Aqua Rio Hotel in Tijuana. Everything nice that other reviewers mention about the hotel is indeed true: the rooms are basic but good, the hotel feels safe and secure, it's quiet at night, the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. What nobody appears to have mentioned is that the rooms are... More

This place was impossibly reasonable for a place one block off Revolucion with safe parking and security guards. The desk staff is SO nice and helpful. The only meh thing about our stay was that it was super hot in TJ this weekend (in August) and that there was no air conditioning in the rooms. A cool shower and the... More

Aqua Rio is a newer hotel and provides a big bandg for your buck. Great downtown locale, 1 block off Ave Revolucion, the main commercial street in TJ. The property is well maintained inside and out. The floors and entire bath are tile. My bed was queen size and very comfy. Go the website and the photos are actual and... More

this hotel is very nice with some nice features to it, at night its very quiet, and they have a computer for guest to use at the front desk. I used it many times to look up things. The hotel has good wifi, and is close to everything, and inexpensive.

The hotel is well maintained, the wifi worked well, and the room is smaller but nice and modern, for the price its a steal, only downfall was the restaurant was closed after 7pm during my stay. The manager is great he handed me a map when i checked in, and... More

Far and away the best value in downtown Tijuana. Rooms are simple but clean, clean, clean. There is no a/c but there is a ceiling fan. Wifi is solid, the location is very good, close to conveniences and the staff is terrific. Security staff is on the property. At about $30 per night you won't be surprised the room is... More
