So I was told it would be a hilton and showed up for the La quinta. If you are an American going to Mexicali, Avoid the Mexicali at all cost. Let start off with the simple fact, that the staff do not act like this is a 4 star hotel. It is the equivalence of staying at a La Quinta.... More

Stayed overnight for a business meeting. Dated rooms, and an overall feeling of neglect. On the plus side, wifi was fast and the staff was extremely helpful ( with the exception of check in staff who were clueless). Meeting facilities were adequate for a presentation, but much more than that.

Great hotel located a few minutes from the border. Has three really good restaurants: Mexican/American, Italian and Steak/seafood. On longer stays venture out and try the local cuisine, but you don't need to with this place. Two pools, spa, shops...

This is one of the top hotels in Mexicali. We stayed in one of the "poolside" cabanas (not even close to the pool). It was roomy enough but the dressing area had only one sink and two people could not get ready without bumping into each other. Our room was right on one of the busiest streets in town -... More

Stay here for a cousin's wedding. She asked me if I can help her with some amenity kits for the guests, so I asked in reception how can I do that. All the team was wonderful, very helpful and friendly, specially Mr. Lemus and Alejandro. Generally, all the hotel staff were very greeting. The rooms are renovated, and they are... More

We were in Mexicali, the capitol city of the Mexican state of Baja California del Norte, to attend the birthday party (200+ attendees) of the mother of a friend of ours. This is a very large hotel complex that seems smaller than it is given the placement of the rooms around the property. They are renovating parts of the hotel... More

The service in the hotel is excellent and during my stay all the employees try to do there best to help you with any needs or questions that you have. The rooms... More

Let me start with the positives: the service is outstanding everyone is very helpful. the outdoor pool area is very nice. the breakfast buffet that's included is good with lots of Variety. The deluxe rooms are nicely renovated for the most part. The AC worked very well. The negatives: the standard rooms desperately needs to be renovated. the newly renovated... More

We stayed over Mothers Day weekend and were glad to have chosen the Lucerna in Mexicali. Some construction at the front but good signs to direct you around that as needed. Friendly staff were helpful at every opportunity. Good to know this small chain tries to keep employees for a career, not just as disposable workers. The care comes thru... More
