The road was torn up the last time we were there, but that didn't damped the spirits at Hotel California! We had nachos, a margarita, and enjoyed the outside patio area. This is a fun place to visit, and we're looking forward to going back there in a couple weeks with 6 friends. Should be fun. Welcome to the Hotel...

This was our 6th visit to Cabos and we braved renting a car to drive to Hotel California. I recommend this drive to everyone. Driving up the coast and watching the surf... beautiful. When we arrived, parking was a little difficult, but Todos Santos is a beautiful little town. Hotel California doesn't look like much from the outside, but once...

1950 Hotel California, immortalized the the song of the same name was founded. It is an eclectic place to stay, visit and eat at. If you are staying in Cabo San Lucas area, it is worth the day trip to the little town of Todo Santo. There are lots of little shops to wander through, a nice simple catholic church...

I'm commenting on the restaurant here--not the hotel proper: We stopped here for a "snack" during our cruise excursion. The snack ended up being a delicious Mexican lunch with typical food. My only complaint was that the food was room temperature, but I guess that is to be expected since they were feeding a large group. The complimentary margarita (because...

Been waiting for my food for an hour and it isn't even full. Prices are high for the quality. You have to search for the waiters in order to get you something. 15 min wait for a clamato beer. On the upside beautiful place and great live music.

Nice place with a lot of history?? No one really seems to know the whole story but nevertheless it was ok. Beer was cold but can't comment much more than that. Service was pretty weak. You can tell they are caught in a tourist trap. If you don't like The Eagles playing non-stop then maybe try somewhere else.

Can't say enough. Our room was beautiful the guest courtroom was relaxing. The hotel staff made us feel very welcome and we had fun with the waiters and bar tenders. Loved hamming it up on the balcony while other tourists were trying to take pictures of this famous hotel.

Everything about our stay here was perfect. We arrived a day earlier from Cabo San Lucas and were greeted by the owner Debbie. She was so accommodating and got us right in to our penthouse suite even though we were a day early. She understood we were tired and ready to begin our vacation. We wandered into the bar and...

A quick stop here after snorkeling with whale sharks was a treat! The Eagles were blaring and the frosty libations were flowing! The cool dude in the pic I attached made me a great margarita! A few days later we rented a car and drove back out we enjoyed it so much.

While I don't usually like to go to more touristy spots, Hotel California is a must spot for visitors to Todos Santos. We stopped by on our way back from the Cabo airport to La Paz with guest from SF. Made sure we timed our visit to admire the hotel lobby, store, overall ambience, and enjoy our first margarita together....
