Stayed here on a Saturday and it was the worst experience ever. Front desk was ok not the greatest. Room was terrible, filthy, smelled funky, outdated and hallways were loud at night. Wouldn't do it again!

Service was good. Helpful frontdesk people, but hotel facilities aren't pair up with the prices. Hotel rooms and facilities are old and look dirty. I wanted to try this hotel because of it's convinient location. I could stay elsewere, a couple of blocks away for half of the price and have a pool and much nicer facilities.

The Hotel is expensive, old and with bad service. My room had no hand towels, there was no paper to write a note, no ball pen or pencil and the beds were done by a non idea maid. I waited almost one hour until the bellboy came to fix the problems.

Outdated hotel, outdated rooms, no free wifi and the halls smell like cigarette smoke. It was in a good location along one of the major avenues but overall it was bad. Oh... and the bathrooms are poorly designed and could be a potential hazard. Would not recommend at all.

Camino Real is usually nice, but the rooms in the Tijuana hotel are old. The mattresses are old, they are uncomfortable, and the linens are disgusting. The walls are paper thin so we were woken up at 6 am because that's when my neighbor set his alarm for. And the bathtubs are high, so it is very dangerous to get in and out of there. There is a sign that warns you of this, but still, it is a dangerous climb.

The staff is nice and helpful, but for the money you pay, I think there should definitely have better rooms.

I rarely stay in TJ, usually only going there for a day trip or to fly further south, but had a wedding to go to south of the border, and the gringo guests all stayed here. The rooms were spacious by any standard and comfortable. Conveniently located in the Zona Rosa, the Camino Real is a fifteen buck cab ride from the Otay crossing. Much closer to San Ysidro, but the pedestrian crossing there is a mess right now and we were carrying overnight bags and wedding presents, so we went Otay and paid the higher cab fare. We got our Internet free as part of a weekend deal.

The hotel looked business friendly; there were lots of rooms for conferences, which we didn't use, and also a gym, which we didn't use either.Both restaurants on the property were decent but neither was spectacular. You don't have to drag yourself out of bed to check out if you've been helling around TJ all night; checkout is 1 PM.

I stay at Camino for three days only. I was on a business trip and the last thing you want in these situations is become without communication with your family. When I saw the hotel's website I couldn't believe that the wi-fi connection has only by purchase. Ok, it wasn't too expensive.I'm not an spanish expert, but I'm sure the attendand gives me a rate/day more than ten times over the correct price. Just a communication problem, not a big issue.

Big room, wonderful bed, powerful air-conditioning system, nice shower, not so good TV options, but that's ok!
