As this was our first time driving down the Baja we were not sure of the quality or quantity of the hotels so we did our research in advanced and pre-booked all of our hotels. This is the 1 hotel that we pre-booked that I had wished that we had not. The hotel was older and maintenance was not the... More

We stayed for one night, a Saturday, in July. We stayed in a Lance camper in the so-called RV park, and my 3 kids stayed in a motel room with 2 double beds. This place is OK if you're tired of driving and need a place to stop for the night. The room was old and small, very run down... More

We made a reservation, both over the phone and by email, to spend the night on our way back to San Diego from Todos Santos. We were told that the price would be $40 - $50 for the four of us, three adults and one child in a room with two queen sized beds. We were also told that the... More

This hotel was excellent. We had planned on stopping in Guerrero Negro, and so had researched possible hotels on Tripadvisor. Traveling by motorcycle does create certain parking requirements. Three of the hotels listed met our requirements, so when we arrived in town, we checked them out. The Malarrimo Motel quickly moved to the top of our list, and we were... More

We stopped in Guerrero Negro to see the whales in Scammon's Lagoon. The camping area behind the motel was more set up for RV's and we tent camped, but all was clean and we used Malarrimo's services for whale watching too. All a great experience.

I stopped in Guerrero Negro for one night on a 10 day bus trip down the Baja and from what I saw this motel is the best place in town. The room seemed reasonably priced for what I got and the check-in was quick. I had a great supper in the restaurant which is loaded with charm as it is... More

Driving the Baja, this is a great spot to stay overnight! The rooms are very clean (best in the town) and the restaurant is Top Quality! We have stayed here at least a dozen times and love the restaurant. Both the rooms and the RV Spots are very good. If you are in the area, be sure and stay here... More

Malarrimo is the oldest hotel in Guerrero Negro and has been leading whale watching for just as long. What worked in 1973, needs updating in 2014. In the 5 days we spent in Baja, we found the Baja people helpful and friendly everywhere but here. If a travel company is going to use email communication, they need to communicate more... More
