I really enjoyed my stay here. Upon arrival, there was a mix up with the type of room that I requested. However, the manager, Rodrigo, immediately corrected it without inconveniencing my wife and I. I was immediately impressed with his willingness to make it right. Our room was nicely acquainted, clean, and felt very secure. Everything I wanted for a...

Overall this hotel is about a 2.5 - They have a good location which is within walking distance of the main bars of Ensenada (1 point). They offer a fast lane pass to get you back across the border (1 point). The staff is friendly and helpful (0.5 points). The overall room, however, is not that great and the walls...

Service at front desk was excellent. The availability of a Fast Pass with my stay was a great selling point. Rooms were ok; small shower, bathroom door didnt completely shut & tv pucture was grainy. However, room had a nice balcony with great view of Ensenada. Although I felt completely safe during my stay, parking is private but not secure...

This was my second time staying at this property. It is clean, basic and located near all that Ensenada has to offer. Parking is nicely secured and the front desk attendant is bilingual and very kind and accomodating. The pool is nice to sit by, but was very cold, as well as the Hot Tub. I don't believe the Hot...

Stayed here for only one night on 26 March, but absolutely will return! This was a quick trip to see if we liked Ensenada - and we certainly do! It has many more charms to explore. Couple the town with this hotel, and it totals a great get-away. The manager, Mr. Ramirez, works tirelessly to make his guests happy. We...

We are visiting Ensenada at least 3 times a year and for the past 7 years this Hotel is our only campground. The rooms are nice, cozy, charming; not your regular "commercial" accommodations. Great location that gives immediate access to downtown, beachwalk, markets and restaurants. Agree with another reviewer about the front desk personnel: while male front desk attendant could...
