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

My trip took place prior to when the whales come into the area. As far as I could tell, there is really no other reason to go to Guerrero Negro. It has the feeling of a port town - kind of seedy, rough and it does not feel as safe as other towns you go through on your way down... More

I have always enjoyed staying at Malarrimo....Always at the end of a long day driving and to just have a shower and a very tasty meal at the the restaurant there on-site and go to sleep and wake up refreshed without spending a lot of money...Good value... Also it is secure for parking...

For 450 pesos a night I expected rough. What I got was an excellent firm bed with heavy clean linen, large soft towels, a big room (2 double beds), free bottled water and a bathroom with large shower. The room was clean and the staff were (mostly) charming. OK, this is not a new place, so there is a bit... More

We stayed at Malarrimo when we were in town for whale watching. We felt safe at this motel and enjoyed their restaurant. It's nothing fancy, but we appreciated the cute decorative touches like the whales carved into the headboards of the beds, and the giant whale fluke painted on the wall. This motel offers whale watching through their tourism office,... More
