My wife and I made a mid-week overnight trip to Ensenada from Los Angeles. We very much liked the location of the hotel from which we walked almost everywhere. Our encounters with the staff were positive. Check-in was OK. The young lady appeared to be a little overwhelmed with our questions regarding recommendations and directions. The experienced gentleman who handled... More

My husband and I stayed here last Saturday and Sunday night. It is more of a charming, vintage style motel, with car parking in the middle and the rooms in a horseshoe shape around it. It is very clean, safe, and, as others have noted, in just a great location. We easily walked to restaurants, bars, & shops. The front... More

I've stayed here by default a few times, but it just became my first choice in town.
