“Very clean and Very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a wonderful place to stay, family owned and simple but clean. Make sure you have breakfast there, it is very good and inexpensive. Seth is the english language speaker , but the other family members do not speak english. It is easy to access downtown Cabo by walking from here. No need for an alarm clock, the rooster will wake you up.

I went to Cabo for the first time and I was travelling alone. I didn't want to stay in middle of the party madness or at one of the very expensive resorts. I was thrilled to find this charming, peaceful, perfect little B&B! The staff was very friendly and welcoming and gave me many recommendations of where to go. (The first night they suggested a wonderful restaurant named Maria Corona--great food with traditional mariachi music). The rooms were adorable and clean, the patio was beautiful (shaded and overflowing with flowers) and the location was within walking distance of everything in Cabo. In addition, they offered a traditional Mexican breakfast each morning that was delicious and a perfect way to start my day. I couldn't have asked for a better first-time Cabo experience!

We stayed at the Mexican Inn for 3 nights and we loved it. It was very clean and beautiful. If you like easygoing nice B&B you are going to love this one. It 3 blocks walking away from where all the action happens so it is a perfect base to discover Cabo San Lucas & all the surroundings. The hotel has only a few rooms and all of the surround a beautiful patio with a fountain where the free breakfast is served. If i return to Cabo I would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: The room called FRIDA has beautiful paintings & decor of Frida Khalo. If you can, ask for this r...

Its crazy that after such a nice trip we get bombarded by our daily routines. This review is based on or Christmas week stay and our apologies for taking long. The Mexican Inn set the stage to a great trip in Cabos. The prime plus of staying here was that it was close to all major attraction, the Marina, Squid Roe, Cabo Wabo, and could easily walk to Medano beach. The place itself was nice considering the budget we were at. Be warned the location on Google maps is wrong and should follow the written directions given. We got lost for a bit. The inside has a fountain and a luscious green dining area. Breakfast with pan dulce, fruit and yogurt, juice, and coffee helped us to start our adventures for the day. The rooms had iconic Mexican decor. A recommendation would be that they add screens to the windows instead of a canopy of a mosquito net. The entrance was also gated and there was always someone to keep the watch during business hours. To contradict some reviews we saw, there is hot water. The older gentleman that checks you in was nice, he even offered us some ceviche that we missed out on. And the lady who serves your meals and cleans the rooms each day was sweet. I think overall it was simple and welcoming which was what we wanted.

This little gem was our favorite spot on a driving tour of the southern cape from San Jose to La Paz and back. Miguel and Rosie made us feel very welcome during our two-night stay. When we arrived, Miguel showed us a couple rooms and let us choose whichever we preferred. The place was nicely decorated and super functional, simple, no frills: ceiling fan with switch by the bed, mosquito netting, hot shower. The rooms surround a small but lush courtyard garden with a fountain and breakfast nook where Rosie serves up pastries, fresh fruit salad with yogurt & granola, and coffee. Hot breakfast is available for a nominal fee. They both were patient with us conversing in Spanish, not sure if they speak English or not. From this little spot, we wandered around Cabo San Lucas, both the local scene and the tourist corridor. Highly recommended. :)

We stayed here one night. Upon arrival the man who greeted my husband was gruff and seemed to be in a bad mood, but the woman who showed us the rooms was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very dark and smelled musty (which an attempt was made to mask the smell by being sprayed with some type of toxic chemical air freshener).

None of our windows locked or were secure. The bathroom window did not close at all, so we had many mosquitoes, cockroaches, and even a slug in our room. There were no screens on the windows. The rooms were clean enough, but it looked as though there was toothpaste left dried in the sink when we arrived.

The courtyard area was nice but this place needs updating and simple repairs.

We didn't try the breakfast so we can't comment on that. We went downtown instead and while we were having breakfast elsewhere our room had been made up (for future guests) while we were away! Before we even checked out. We thought that was very rude. The place was not full, we only saw one other room occupied while we were there. All the bedding and towels had been changed while we were out. They just moved all of our toiletries and clothes, etc aside.

We will never go back, nor recommend this hotel.
