We stayed here one night with two children, 8 and 10. I agree with a previous review that the hotel is akin to am older Motel 6. The road traffic is pretty load. Our room didn't have AC, but the ceiling fan was sufficient. Wifi was spotty and unreliable. The chair in the room was a patio chair. Overall, fine... More

Driving from SD to Cabo, this is a natural stopping point for many travelers. I was no exception. Guerrero Negro rises up from the highway like Vegas does driving in from LA....just not as nice. That being said, there are really only a few hotel options. Reading the reviews of others, I opted for Hotel Los Caracoles. Overall, I would... More

The hotel itself is ok. The proximity to the road and location next to the gas station are not ideal. There was noise from the passing cars much of the night. Music coming from cars driving by as well as from those at the adjacent gas station. The bed and bathroom were ok. There was a layer of dust on... More

I have used Los Caracoles for the past 3 years for my whale watching groups . Staff is friendly, especially helpful is Elisa. Rooms are clean, wifi access, and a handy little coffee shop restaurant next door. GN is a 1 business town, home of the Exportadoras de Sal. the largest salt exporters in the world. no luxury accommodations,

Caracoles (Sea Shells) is one of the two better hotels in Guerrero Negro. A good place to stay and arrange your whale watching trip. The service is friendly and they can make all arrangements to see the whales. The rooms are spartan with typical furnishings and Spanish only TV stations. Good hot water. Right nearby is a nice convenience store/cafe... More

We were told about this hotel by others, it was okay and one of the best in town but definitely not something to write home about. expensive for quality of rooms, asked 780 pesos for a junior suite with king size but negotiated to 645 pesos. More than what we have been paying elsewhere for an average room. coffee machines... More

We pre-booked Caracoles by Email. We said we would be late arriving as the first bus of the day left Ensenada at 14-00 for a 10 hour journey. With the clocks going forward one hour in Guerrero Negro we arrived at Caracoles at 01-30 . They had not kept our room. We were given the only but more expensive room... More

The hotel has aspirations to be good but falls very short. The only saving grace of this hotel is the hot shower. The "suite" ( which is nothing but a very large, bare room) was cold, the tiny little air conditioner/heater did nothing unless one stood right under it, the tea/coffee maker hangs on the wall on a tiny stand...

This is the best hotel in Guerrero Negro. Room are simple but clean, owners are friendly, & like other reviewers have mentioned - they take credit cards. So whether it's just a night's stay on your trip through Baja or a longer Whale watching tour, this is the place to stay. Make sure to grab some dinner at the Malarrimo... More
