We recently stayed four nights at this hotel as part of a whale watching tour of Baja California. The Hotel's rooms are situated in a courtyard setting facing the small hotel pools. The location is quiet and within walking distance of the small town of San Ignacio. However, you will need a torch if walking out at night to other... More

Very expensive for what it is (US $ 100). The blind was broken and everyone could see through it at night. The bed was so bad that I couldn't sleep. What they call a swimming pool is just big enough to take a foot bath. Very very disappointing.

This is a Fonatur hotel, owned by the Mexican government. Very spacious, reliably clean and has all the basics... pool, bar, restaurant, open 24 hours. Since they only have any appreciable business during whale watching season, and it is owned by the government and cannot fail, the level of hospitality is as you might expect. Staff is very friendly and... More

If your headed out to enjoy the grey whales in the lagoons of San Igacio, stop by the desert inn and take the 1.25 hour jaunt to the bay early the next morning. The courtyard is nice and the pool refreshing. In the evening, head to Tootsies for a little dinner and drink. My wife joined me at San Ignacio... More

We have stayed here couple of years ago passing through, and then again this February on a whale watching trip. The hotel has been renovated in 2006 and is still quite nice. I like the courtyard architecture with a pool in the middle, and date palms all around. Very quiet. Don't even bother trying to connect to the Internet -... More

This was the best choice when stopping in the desert on the way to Baja Sur. After receiving no response from several communications with rice & beans, we chose the government run Desert Inn. The rooms were acceptable and the shower was immediately HOT ! Breakfast was meager by most US hotel standards, but enough to get us on our... More

Quaint, courtyard style hotel. Walking distance to a lovely town with an old church and traditional plaza. The night I was there the high school dance class put on a performance of regional dances. Beautiful desert gardens behind with millions of stars in the night sky. Bat habitat. The room was very clean and comfortable with hot showers. There is... More

Great service, pleasant surroundings. Stay a few days and walk through town to see the mission and stop at cafes. Longer excursions to see archeological sites/cave paintings and whale whatching available.
