“A little tricky to find, but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We spent almost two weeks in BCS and only stayed in Cabo the first and last nights due to proximity to the airport. We loved this place though. Awesome staff, clean rooms, and great location (walking distance to everything). We thoroughly enjoyed talking to the owner about life in BCS and are ready to become ex-pats too! Will definitely stay here again if we get back to Cabo.

Found this place on tripadvisor and feel like we hit a homerun. Alex was great. Room was great. Location was hard to find but once we did we never needed to use our car for 3 days. Walking distance to everything. 20.00 us. massage next door was great too. Only complaint is little noisy from restaurant in court yard but we where upstairs and it was not a problem when i shut the door. Water heater was a little small. If not for those two things i would give 5 stars. We will be back next time we visit for sure. Keep up the good work guys.

I stayed in unit 202 on 12/15/2012. Here are the annoyances:
* The faucet in the bathroom sink was tiny - it did not extend far enough over the sink. This made it difficult to use the water, for example hand washing was inconvenient.
* There are only two parking places for the property. They were both taken when I arrived so I had to double park behind one of the cars and leave my keys at the front desk in case the blocked car needed to leave. At most four cars can be accommodated (two double parked). Staff did not have any suggestions for alternate parking arrangements.
* My room had a sliding glass door which had a flimsy latch. Operation was with a key (not an electronic card). Not the most secure.
* The front desk was not consistently staffed at times you would expect it to be staffed. I had to wait for a staff person to walk by - often it was a teenage kid.
* When I tried to used the screen on the sliding door it fell out of its track and crashed to the walkway railing. Luckily no one was walking by.

Observations
* Streets around the motel are very narrow.
* The couch was wide and flat - it seemed more suited to be used as bed.
* The restaurant in the courtyard generated a lot of noise on the Saturday night I was there. Later in the night there was noise from a band at nearby bar. So this is not a quiet place.

The good
* Location is ideal for walking access to the bars, restaurants and marina
* Room was clean
* Furniture was in good condition.

Verdict
A good value for the price, but don't expect a high-class room.

SiestaSuites, Owner at Siesta Suites, responded to this review, December 20, 2012
Thank you for staying with us at Siesta Suites.
First, we are sorry that your stay was less than desirable.
We have never had anyone complain about the sinks. Yes, the doors to the rooms are opened by a key, but they also have chains on the inside for use when you go to bed- AAA approved. We have 4 off-street parking spaces and three on the street in front of the hotel. Downtown Cabo has a major parking issue and yes, the streets can be narrow. This is Mexico and it has lots of character. Most people who stay with us do not rent cars, as you can walk anywhere. We are a Mom and Pop hotel, family owned and operated for 20 years. We are proud to encourage young people to work for us, including our own kids, and we find them to be good employees. As far as the noise, we are located downtown, where the action is. People in our restaurant have fun and you may hear a little music and laughter from your room until 11pm when they close. Unfortunately, you stayed with us during the Christmas season and there was a large Christmas party going on in the town square a couple of blocks away. We appologize for the music. Many people come to Cabo to let loose and enjoy life. Again, thank you for your stay and for your suggestions. For $60u.s. per night, we do our very best to make Siesta Suites a great place to stay. It seems to us that maybe you were expecting the services of a $200 u.s. per night resort.

I stayed here at the start of a recent trip to Cabo. I own a timeshare week that starts on a Monday, so I always come down a couple of days early to get more time in paradise. For this year's trip, I tried the Siesta Suites and loved, loved, loved it.

First, you can't beat the location. It is smack dab in the middle of all the nightlife, shopping and restaurants of Cabo San Lucas. I had a car for the week, but I left it parked for the two days I was at the Siesta Suites and walked everywhere.

The hotel has a very boutique-style vibe to it. The entire property is decorated with rich, vibrant colors. I thought the rooms were very ample for the price of $69 per night. You get a bedroom that is separate from the outer room with a sitting area and kitchenette.

The bathroom is basic and clean. If I had one minor quibble, it's that each room has its own small hot water heater and it only gives you about 10 minutes of hot water for a shower. If you were with a group this could be a problem. But for the price point, small inconveniences like that can be tolerated.

One other thing to note is that the hotel no longer takes credit cards. You either mail a check to the owner of the property who lives in San Diego, or you bring cash for when you check in. They said that the increased transaction fees were no longer worth it.

If you aren't looking for a mega resort with a killer pool area, then Siesta Suites is the perfect place to stay in Cabo. You're a few blocks from the marina and can easily catch a water taxi to Medano Beach for about $5. Que Bueno!

My wife and I were on a cruise, and there was an overnight stay in Cabo. We thought that it would be nice to stay off the ship for a night, but we didn't want a pampered tourist hotel type of experience. We were looking for something with more character, with the authentic feel of being in Mexico. Siesta Suites did not disappoint! The room was clean and comfortable, and the atmosphere was great! The hotel is in great location, a very easy walk from the marina, even for my wife, who has a fused left ankle. When we got there, we relaxed with our feet in the soaking pool in the middle of the couryard and enjoyed a margarita from Salvatore's, which is the excellent Italian restraurant that shares the couryard with Siesta Suites. If you like margaritas, please be sure to inform the front desk at the hotel when you check in. Apparently, the hotel has an agreement with the restaurant that allows guests one free drink, but not every restaurant employee knows this. We wound up paying for our "welcome" drink, but the hotel management made sure that we got a free drink later on that night. What a friendly, welcoming staff! I would recommend that you bring any soaps, shampoos, or other amenities that you would normally use. This is not an American hotel, and they do things a little diffently in Mexico. Personal care items do not come complimentary with your hotel stay. Based on the excellent price that we paid for our room, It was still an excellent value! The beautifully decorated courtyard was the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping, bar hopping, and sightseeing. Who knows, you might even make a friend, like we did with one of our neighbors and the resident cat, Big Mama. There is a lot of activity with the excellent restaurant, which seems to get an incredible amount of tourist business. The taxis just keps showing up, presumably with people who were staying at much more posh, expensive hotels. I couldn't help thinking that they were missing out on something special. There was no place that we'd rather be. We ate at Salvatore's, and I can see why it's so popular. The food is delicious, and the portions are huge! Then, at 10:00, something magical happens. Everyone leaves, the restaurant shuts down, and the whole place becomes quiet, almost serene. A good night's sleep is easy to be had. Would I recommend Siesta Suites? Absolutely!

Room Tip: We stayed on the bottom floor, and it was great. I cannot comment on the other rooms, but I'm t...
