I arrived about sunset at Baja Cactus and was excited to stay in a place where people had spoken so highly. What a shock I had. Apparently there is an old and new section to the motel. The old section rooms are 1-8. I think the new section are 100 series-not sure. I was unlucky to be assigned room 6. One of the worst nights I ever spent. Couldn't wait for daybreak to get the hell out of there. Lumpy, filthy beds. Every fixture in the bathroom was broken. Towel rack, toilet paper holder, soap dish, sink. No shower head. Didn't even want to take a shower as it looked so dirty and I didn't want to catch something. I think you get the drift. And, they charged me the same as the nice rooms everyone brags about. Typical Mexican tourist ripoff. So, ask to see the room first. If there are no new rooms or they try to tell yu there are none then leave. There are other options in town. Mama Espinosa's next door has basic but clean rooms and they have good Mexican food to boot.
