It is a good place to spend the night if you are passing through, I felt very safe in the neighborhood and you can walk everywhere, lots of restaurants and shops around. The room itself was very comfortable.

I've stayed here by default a few times, but it just became my first choice in town. I like to stay at Hotel Coral and Punta Morro and as nice as the views and hotels are, you can't beat staying in town and walking everywhere at night! I absolutely love to head to Valle de Guadalupe all day and walk...

I thought the title to be a good description. It wasn't as polished as hotels in the USA, but that is def. Not what I wanted. I wanted mexico flair, that spirit is present here. It felt cozy and familiar. It Didn't Give You That Feeling You Get At Other Hotels Where You Feel Like You Are Far Away From...

We came down from San Diego for the night and walked in this place. Everything about the place was amazing including the location, staff, rooms, pool and hot tub area and free breakfast! Mike from the bar gave us tons of tips on great local spots in the city and on the coast to enjoy. Great hospitality at this hotel!...

This was my second stay at this hotel. Both stays have been great. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed. Staff are always friendly, efficient and helpful. Prices are a big plus as they are quite reasonable. I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

We stayed for one night. Our room was spacious. The bathroom and bedding were very clean. There was a good shower with hot water. The water was potable. I would stay there again.

We decided on Ensenada based on a glowing article published in a magazine. We chose this hotel based on the same article which described it as a charming family run boutique hotel. The staff are very friendly, there was always one who was bi-lingual which helped seeing as our Spanish is limited. Our on-line reservation was accepted without any trouble....

We stayed here as a group of four for a wine tasting trip in Valle de Guadalupe. We were initially pretty hopeful given the pictures, but this place is basically a slightly nicer motel. We chuckled quite a bit about their claim of being a "boutique" hotel but at least the rooms were clean. Beds were rock hard, but that's...
