My wife and I made a mid-week overnight trip to Ensenada from Los Angeles. We very much liked the location of the hotel from which we walked almost everywhere. Our encounters with the staff were positive. Check-in was OK. The young lady appeared to be a little overwhelmed with our questions regarding recommendations and directions. The experienced gentleman who handled...

My husband and I stayed here last Saturday and Sunday night. It is more of a charming, vintage style motel, with car parking in the middle and the rooms in a horseshoe shape around it. It is very clean, safe, and, as others have noted, in just a great location. We easily walked to restaurants, bars, & shops. The front...

We came down from San Diego for the night and walked in this place. Everything about the place was amazing including the location, staff, rooms, pool and hot tub area and free breakfast!
