The place is a bit rundown, but we were comfortable there. The staff was great and treated us very well. The food was actually pretty darn good also at the restaurant. They also had a pool table (very poor condition) and a ping pong table for amusement. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for one night recently while with a tour group. This lovely hotel is set in the middle of perhaps the most beautiful desert environment I have ever seen. Catavina is a tiny town with not much to offer except this hotel. But the scenery is the main draw here. The hotel grounds and a walk further in...

This hotel is probably your best option between Ensenada and San Ignacio. Spacious rooms set around a swimming pool (room 110 is set a little further back so less noisy). Beds are too soft for my taste and wifi is unfortunately paid.

First of all, if you haven't visited the central Baja Valle de los Cirios then you must go. It is an other worldly spot lush with unique desert plants. We stopped at Mision Hotel Catavina during a recent trip to see the desert in bloom after the heavier than normal rains this year. The hotel is in the middle of...

Excellent hotel in the middle of nowhere. Located in the middle of the Baja desert, this resort truly seems like an oasis. Hotel has several spaces such a bar with a pool table, restaurant, swimming pool, beautiful gardens, tasty food and friendly staff. Rooms are well equipped, clean and spacious. Fully recommended.. totally worth the trip

The only reason I stayed at the Mision Hotel (ex Desert Inn) was to break up the long journey from Guerrero Negro to Ensenada. It's a bit of an oasis in the desert! There's nothing else in Catavina, but I did discover there are other, less expensive places to stay (and eat) further along, in El Rosario and San Quintin....

Amazing courtyard, pool area, restaurant, bar, but our room was in an area where construction was going on and had that slightly aromatic, missing details quality to it that is common in Baja. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Loved the bathrooms, although the sink in ours didn't work. Nearby was wonderful desert vistas where we hiked. Most expensive...

Stayed for one night on route south. This is truly a lone star place with very little else nearby except the main highway. The courtyard design is well done and pleasing. The check in and check out were efficient and smooth. Wifi available by the hour but good value at 30 pesos a go! Dinner and breakfast were good and...

Traveling up Highway 1 in Baja California, we were still about 2 hours from what we thought was the nearest town with a hotel and off to the left was beautiful mission style building. It was getting dark and we didn't want to drive at night. Stopped in and got a beautiful room with a restaurant on premise. The room...

Old style Mission hotel. Great rooms. Love the windows with it's heavy duty wooden window closers. Not something you get to see. Service is great in the bar and the dining room. Food is very good and well appointed,and a nice warm atmosphere. Rooms have heat or air conditioning, so that is a big plus. Beautiful area is Catavina..with its...
