This is an excellent budget hotel in the heart of downtown Cabo. The hotel itself is very small, just a few rooms accessed from an interior hallway in a building that is several stories tall and resembles an office building. The room was very clean, very bright, lots of natural light came in through several Non-opening windowlights set high up...

We received keys to Room #14 and were shocked to see what awaited us after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. The room had no windows and can be best described as an elevator with no bed. I didn't feel safe spending the night in this hotel and ended up bailing on the stay, foregoing the money that we paid (over 900...

This hotel was exactly what my friends and I were looking for. Something in downtown, clean, and affordable. Staff were always nice and helpful and there is tacos, bars, clubs, and la Marina in walking distance, which was awesome! We never had to get a cab! Great experience, I would totally recommend it.

Don't waste your time looking for another budget hotel. Trust me its right by Cabo Wabo, its downtown, and easy to walk everywhere. There isn't an elevator but we didn't care. I stayed there with 2 girlfriends and we had heavy suitcases but the owner Jesus carried them up for us. I loved the security gate and the fact that...

I have stayed in 15 different hotels in town, the owner is a great stand up guy, the rooms are clean as a whistle. Hotel is quiet, safe and centrally located. It's my go to on a budget. Btw the local art in all the rooms is awesome and for sale just talk to the owner.

I paid about $43 a night. Credit cards accepted. Room was huge, laboratory-clean, had a strong A/C unit, and excellent wifi. Large, modern minifridge. Lavanderia right downstairs. Friendly, helpful, professional owner usually onsite. Spacious bathroom and hot-water shower that needed a couple of minutes to get hot. Uncomfortable mattress. Very well-located--close to the action but far enough away to avoid...

We stayed here when we first arrived in Cabo San Lucas and wanted to try something away from all the timeshares. There were a couple of rooms that had not been remodeled yet and we had one of those because they lost the reservation. We looked at a few of the remodeled rooms and they are large and beautiful. The...

Nice place, close to everything. I stayed at the Maria Elena for five days, the room was clean and had good air conditioning and a bathroom with a big shower. The mattress is a little firm, but typical for the area, and the window in the room is very small and the glass is etched, so there was no view....

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for three nights and it was perfect for walking around downtown Cabo. It was very clean and the hotel itself was super quiet. The noise from the road would be the only issue but we quickly adjusted. Jesus was very flexible with our reservation and always around to answer our questions. Would...

We arrived to this hotel after having problems with our first hotel. We were so happy to have friends in TripAdvisor who recommended this place to us. The price is very reasonable and we found our rooms to be renovated, comfortable and nicely designed. We had two rooms. The first one was on the first floor, which I recommend if...
