On our second trip to Baja we decided to stay again at Hotel 1697 both on our trip down and back the peninsula because of the great location, kind host and hostess and the fantastic craft beer! Kieran and Norma run a great restaurant and tiny hotel right on the plaza. Kids appreciated satellite TV and wifi after being in... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a week. My wife had not been to Loreto before. I had been there on several fishing trips. The hotel is in the center of the square. The hotel features a restaurant next to the bungalows. We had plenty of meals on our veranda from the restaurant. The food was good,... More

We stayed here in June 2016. The best part is the location right in the town square but only a 5 minute walk from the beach. The night we were there there was a local dance recital just outside and we enjoyed getting a little taste of the local culture. There were lots of great restaurants within a few minute... More

The location was very good right on the main square, but it was very quiet. The parking was good, it's a very small and intimate hotel with only four rooms we think. Our room number 7 was at the back of the property, the bathroom was nearly as big as the room. Norma & Kieran were very helpful, providing maps... More

Decent spot nestled right beside town square. Good room with 2 queen beds, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, dishes and small sink. You could call it a mini kitchenette.Clean and comfortable but nothing fancy. Room 9 a little on the dark side, and a bit of noise from bar / kitchen in the evenings. Overall a decent budget hotel

We initially stayed for three nights and loved it so much we came back again. The rooms are lovely in a simple style, but high quality, with nice en-suite shower-rooms. Each room has a private terrace and there's even a washing line for guests' use. The location is brilliant in the town square, yet it is also quiet and private.... More

Room was spotless, with a very good-sized bathroom and comfortable bed. A/C and ceiling fan. Wifi in the room. Minifridge in the room. Little covered porch with table and chairs out front. Had good hot water two days... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The room was clean, and a good size. The bed was pretty uncomfortable, which is why I didn't give it a five star rating. The staff was friendly. There was no frig in the room. Also, we had to ask for water glasses. It is in a great location, right on the... More

This was a fine little place to stay. As far as we could tell, it was only 4 rooms and I think we had the smallest. Yet, without being fussy or pretentious, everything was just right. Nice, new, very clean and bright. And, the attached patio/balcony doubled the size and feel of the room. We faced the back of the... More

I really enjoyed my 4 night stay here; Norma and Kieran are welcoming and incredibly helpful hosts, who went to great lengths to help me get the most from my time. The room was spotless, very nicely decorated, spacious and stylishly presented. The restaurant is also very nice; I ate several times from a light snack to full meal and... More
