No matter if you believe this is or is not the inspiration for the Eagles hit single, this place can stand on its own by charm alone. We always walk around, take in the ambiance, and buy shirts and caps for gift giving. Very cool. Personally, we believe this is the song's true inspiration. It's just so perfect.

The building looked nice and the food was pretty good. Granted we were only there for breakfast but not much there to celebrate the Eagles, not even their music was playing. On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair.....

My hubby and I had breakfast here. The food was expensive and not great. Seemed to be all men working there and lacked a personal feel. Maybe it would be a good place for a Friday night party, but not breakfast. For that, go to Las Fuentes.

If you are visiting Southern Baja Mexico you must visit the wonderful town of Todos Santos. It is about one and half hours from Cabo San Lucas and the drive is wonderful. The famous Hotel California which inspired the Eagles to write about it is a MUST SEE experience. Not only is the town quaint but the people, the beautiful... More

We weren't going to rate Hotel California. Really. It's a tourist attraction with 500 TripAdvisor reviews. Who needs another one? But we stopped in the bar for a drink, and I was incredibly impressed with the bartender. I didn't get his name, but if the boss is reading this, the guy working yesterday afternoon (15 Nov 2016) needs a raise!... More

Todos Santos is a remarkable place, and Hotel California adds to the magic. In fact, it's a big part of it. Whether it's THE Hotel California (many say it is), pales into insignificance when you get there. This place is terrific, with or without the legend. It's a must - even if it's just for a lunch (the flautas and... More

Flies abound in Todos Santos, especially on very hot muggy days. But then, so do people. We made our one day annual excursion for Cabo San Lucas, a nice drive on excellent freeways with almost no traffic. After walking around for a while we stopped for drinks and food at one of our favorite restaurants and again, it did not... More

I've always heard of it and wanted to go there. The last 2 years my wife & I have stayed in San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Both times we rented cars and drove to Todos Santos to see the Hotel California. It was great both times. Once was a Sunday, and the town was pretty much closed... More
