Yearly we drive up to visit Hotel California and do enjoy our visits there. They have expanded the back part of it and now had a stage. They even had a potter there that you could watch and purchase his items. Their gift shop is very unique carrying local merchandise and Hotel

We enjoy going to Todos Santos every other year. Our highlight is to go to Tequila Sunrise across the street from Hotel California for margaritas. But it’s closed on Sundays. Too bad, because we were rather disappointed in what we were served - the margaritas were pretty basic,

Do you have live music at night? If so, What days of the week? Planning on staying over April 27
Hola Steve...nice to hear from you again. Our hotel is said to be the "inspiration" for the song...I don't have proof of that but most of the world believes it is as the words to the hit song fit this place. Anyway, unfortunately we can't sell and/or ship merchandise from our store at this time. Hopefully, you can come back one day or you'll have a friend coming here that could pick up a t'shirt for you. All the best in 2017!! Debbie

"All rooms are within earshot of the very noisy Main Street and the doors and windows are very cheap with huge cracks in them."
"We only went for the the shops and the restaurant. Not sure if there are rooms available."
"This is a restaurant review, not a hotel."
"Do not stay here!"
