“A great place in El Rosario, Baja California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Turista Motel is located on the left, on the edge of town, as you leave, heading south. It's a newer place. I stayed there twice in August of 2012 and considered it a great find. It was spotless and the room was tastefully appointed and sported a king bed, but for some reason there was no place to hang the clothes. The bathroom was spotless and everything worked. There is WiFi. The cost was no more than charged by much more humble establishments in town. The comedor (dining room) was closed, but Hotel Sinahi, back in town, is my favorite. There is a ceiling fan but no air conditioning, but then the proximity to the Pacific keeps El Rosario comfortable, even in August. I stayed in Room #9 both times. It's far enough from the highway not to be greatly bothered by traffic noise. I'm looking forward to my next stay at this special place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stayed there because our first choice, Baja Cactus Hotel, didn't hold our reservations. The Toursita Motel was very comfortable and clean. The rooms felt and looked fairly new. They had TV and Wifi. No coffee in the room but the office had hot coffee ready at 6AM. Good warm water for the shower. Like most hotels along the highway, it was noisy now and then. I was pulling a trailer and had room to detach and park it. It felt pretty secure as it was walled all the way around. I gave it an "average" but really for the Baja Peninsula, it was better than that. Especially for the price.

Room Tip: Farther from the highway!
