Family and I recently visited family in el Sauzal , very close to Ensenada. As we have the previous 5-6 years we booked a reservation at this hotel well in advance. When I reserved over the phone I indicated I wanted the room rate that includes the fast pass. This is the main reason why we stay at this hotel...

I reached out to the hotel manager since my elderly father is handicap and would need some accommodations. Jeannelle was very quick to respond back and ask how she along with her staff could help make our stay better. They gave us great rooms with easy access for my father. The location is great the rooms were spacious. They appear...

The main strip of Ensenada is where the action is. It's a very walkable area with restaurants and bars. This hotel is centrally located right off of the boulevard and offers clean rooms while on budget.

This is about a half block off the popular Avenida Adolfo Lopez Mateos which has a lot of restaurants, cafes, and shopping. We stayed on the first floor. Rooms on the first floor (ground floor) front the interior parking lot. It was remarkably quiet during our stay. There was very little noise from the parking area or upstairs. The staff...

I picked this hotel because it is in the middle of all the down town shopping, beauty salons and coffee shops and walking distance to Hussongs and Papas n Beer. The hotel is very very old. The hotel room door was very thin just didn't feel safe. This hotel does not offer any kind of view of the city. I...

Hi, I forgot my favorite jean jacket. I contacted them and they shipped it back to me in the states via UPS and did not charge me. They went over and beyond what I expected. Also the room was clean and nice. Free breakfast at the hotel restaurant was yummy. I would stay there again.

We were at El Rey Sol on August 9-13, 2016. I am a native of Ensenada, so I knew exactly where the hotel was located and what it looked like. I know it's an old hotel, but I knew that over time it's been maintained. However, sadly, I was dissappointed. First, we hadto ask for a second key, needed extra...

For years the quality of the internet connection was highly dependent on the location of your room. The situation has now changed: wifi is excellent also in some remote rooms. So, the place is fine for business travellers as well. The laundry service can still be improved to avoid the struggle to get a laundry bag. Also if you want...

I've been staying at this place for the past few years, and their honeymoon suite is still the same. I can't say about their other rooms because I've never stayed in another type of room here.
