We stayed at several hotels in San Felipe, Loreto, La Paz, Cabo San Lucas and even at an inexpensive hotel in Mulege. But this one in Santa Rosalia was by far the worst. The lady at the reception desk was very rude and barely helpful; customer service must not be in her vocabulary. The room was bare and it took... More

A good place to stop for the night when driving the Baja. A comfortable & clean motel to stay. Pets are allowed. Place appears to be getting some much needed upgrading. Ample parking close to rooms. Staff is friendly, bilingual & very helpful.

The building is fine. You can park your car near the bedroom door which is a bit better on the security front. The AC was weak but the window opened...the water pressure was low. but by far the worst were the beds--setting aside the fact that the mattresses were worn out. I shared a room with my friend--two beds--my bed... More

Hotel el Morro has an awesome view of the Sea of Cortez, which we didn't discover until the following morning since we showed up at night. The rooms lack decor, and aren't very clean. I don't know what it was, but we were both itching the entire night while trying to sleep in that bed. The continental breakfast consisted of... More

The setting is stunning. The rooms, while dark and dated, have a certain charm. The building itself is lovely. It is clean. That's the good - the bad is the iron cage around the patio, the complete lack of even warm let alone hot, water and the dirty weed choked patio. The repulsive is the "continental" breakfast. Nasty weak coffee,... More

Dog friendly, parking right outside the room, nice terrace with a gorgeous view of the Sea of Cortez. About a mile outside of the town to the south. Several good restaurants in town.Free continental breakfast, which is never anything to get excited about, but very rare for Baja. Great place but with 2 complaints, I was promised the WIFI would...

I really enjoyed Hotel el Morro. The parking was secure, a good thing because we had an ATV in our pickup. The WIFI was a bit sketchy in our room but we were otherwise quite pleased. There is a great Chinese restaurant, yes I said Chinese, just north of the hotel, perhaps a 1/2 mile also on the water. Another... More

Unbeatable location, great ocean views, clean, basic room with mismatched, worn furniture. Great terraces with wonderful views up and down the coast. This hotel has clearly seen better days. The breakfast was nothing to write home about.

Hotel El Morro is a lovely older hotel with extra large rooms that have two queen size beds and many rooms have private patio's overlooking the Sea of Cortez. The hotel is clean and exceptionally quiet. I am a very fussy traveler who really enjoys a siesta and this hotel lets you sleep undisturbed.......the new management has American standards and...
