This was a pleasant surprise during a miserable guided tour. We had lunch here with low expectations and loved it. The staff was attentive and the food excellent. We had probably the best tortilla soup I’ve ever had. The fish dishes were cooked perfectly.I am going to try and recreate the Chili Rellenos stuffed with shrimp and scallops. The restaurant made an otherwise miserable day a success

As others have indicated, it’s largely a tourist trap. Hotel is still closed (presumably due to Covid restrictions) but the bar & restaurant are currently open. Food was good in the restaurant, margs were okay & service par for the course. Don’t have high expectations- snap the pic you want & move on…

We had a chance to have lunch at Hotel California during a recent trip to Todos Santos, Mexico. Considering the hype and name recognition, we expected more. We had a simple meal, nothing special, nothig worth writing home about. Place is surrounded by touristy booths. Not the spot to visit if you are looking for an authentic or tradtional Mexican experience.

Service was slow. Food was just okay. Very poor access for wheelchairs. Staff was pleasant but not very helpful. Overall disappointing since the last few times were wonderful. Not really sure if I want to go back even though I love the atmosphere there. Overall impression was…..disappointing

I have been here many times and the food and service have always been great. This time was a disaster. Even though they were not busy it took forever to get service. The food was barely edible. Don't try this place if you are in a wheelchair. We zigged and zagged numerous times trying to get inside. This is a definite MISS. Don't try it. Never again.

This place is best known for its lawsuit with the Eagles Band. It’s nice to photograph, but beyond that, it’s a large souvenir stand. Thank God for our stop at Tequila Sunrise Restaurant or the day would have been a bust.

A google search will tell you that this placed named like the famous song is purported not to be the place from the famous song. I know that's what they say but there are enough similarities of what's described that I feel the place has credibility to be the actual place. For instance when my family and I were there, I heard the mission bell from the church nearby. It was a great little place to visit if you are staying in Cabo. The courtyard where I wanted to dance to remember had a gate on it and was not accessible but there was a bar there and a gift ship with a number of great things to bring home.

We stop every year in Todo Santos and have lunch at the Hotel California. We own a place in San Jose and usually take our friends up for a tour of the area. This year while with friends we stopped into the gift shop to buy some tequila. The guy behind the bar had such a poor attitude that I almost left without buying the four bottles of their tequila brand. Our friend asked if they could taste the tequila to decide if they should buy a few bottles themselves. He held up an empty bottle and said no there wasn't any left. She decided that she wouldn't bother buying any and went across the street and bought four bottles of another tequila. The guy in the shop is costing the owner a lot of money by acting like he doesn't enjoy his job. I hope they see that or maybe they don't care? Who knows. But if it was one of my employees I would definitely get them to shape up or get someone that appreciates a job!

Stopped in here on our rental car tour around Baja California Sur. Had food and drinks in the bar (patio). Stopped in the shop for a bit and looked around. If you're touring around Baja and have the time, make this one of your stops--you won't be disappointed!
