My husband and I were headed to the lagoon for whale watching with Kuyima Ecotours in February 2016. We checked out Trip Advisor and saw that this place for a #1 location in San Ignacio. Granted there are only 4 or 5 hotels in the area. This one is very nice, clean, safe, and quiet. We flew into Loreto airport,... More

We took the evening bus from Santa Rosalia to the drop-off on Highway #1 for San Ignacio and walked the short distance to the Desert Inn. We were given a newly renovated room, which was spotless, with 2 queen sized beds, beautifully but not luxuriously appointed. Lots of hot water, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and even a sewing kit! The... More

San Ignacio Springs B&B was closed for the summer so we gave Desert Inn a try. It is the standard Fonatur hotel, that were built in the late 60s. It was nicely updated and the staff was helpful and fast. We were the only guests at the hotel. We did not try the restaurant so cannot report the food. The... More

Great place to stay if going to pet whales in San Ignacio Lagoon. Food and beverage selections were very good. Definitely place to stay.The people are very cordial and friendly. WiFi a bit sketchy but you are on vacation.

Built in the lush region of dates trees and water the inevitable bugs abounded. Some of them in my room! Otherwise the room was clean and serviceable, nice enough considering we are basically in the middle of nowhere. The AC worked fine which was welcome. Drinks were very expensive and table service in the restaurant very slow as they were... More

Just the fact they were up and running was a minor miracle!! There is still work underway in the area but they are really doing a great job! The big problem is they need more staff in the restaurant as meals can be very very slow but the staff are really doing their best. The food is actually very good,... More

This hotel is one of a chain in Baja that are mostly privately owned, but according to our tour leader, the Mexican government still owns this one. It and the whole town of San Ignacio suffered greatly in Hurricane Odile last September. There are a couple of things you should know before booking. Some rooms still do not have bathroom... More

We arrived late afternoon in San Ignacio and saw the devastation from the last hurricane. Luckily the Desert Inn was open. We were pleasantly surprised with their accommodations. Very clean, quiet and pet friendly. At $65.00 a night we felt this was fare for two very tired people with two little dogs. There is a heated swimming pool and a... More

Wasn't sure if the hotel would be open given all the damage in San Ignacio as a result of the major hurricane earlier in 2014 but they were open, had rooms available, swimming pool open and waiting, restaurant open, everything all good! I always stay here when in Baja. Arranged with a tour guide in the center plaza area across... More
