I travel to Ensenada often. This weekend happened to be the famous Rosarito-Ensenada bike ride where close to 10,000 riders make the 50-mile trek down the coast to Ensenada. Another hotel messed up our reservation and The Costa Baja bailed us out. The hotel just so happened to be right at the finish line and subsequent fiesta that followed. It was a great time. The room was average. However it was very clean. The staff was beyond helpful and courteous. They have a cool pool/jacuzzi area. We were hardly in the room and really did not care that it was not a resort type place. In fact that made it better for this trip. I give this 4-stars not because it's a 4-star hotel...but the service is 4-stars and perhaps even 5-stars. Very cool people there. Thank you Costa Baja!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Coming down to Ensenada from Southern California...finding Mexican food is not hard. Walking around town and stumbling upon a great Italian restaurant was unexpected. That's exactly what happened. Right across the street from the El Cid Hotel...great Italian restaurant with a sidewalk dining area. Great menu...great staff. Check it out.

weekend stay

I got there on a friday, non holiday, lighting sucks, airconditioner very noisy so old that when i turned the knob the face fell off, the condition should clue you in when you check in and you get a real key and the remote handed to you. Elevator would even shut all the way. Need to renovate entire bathroom and sink.

All we needed was a place to sleep

We reserved two rooms online in advance and when we arrived they only had one room reserved- we all had to hang out in one room meanwhile we got word- three hours later- that they got another room for us. It wasnt the nicest place we've ever stayed at but for being a last minute thing, it worked- I would stay here again... if I had to...

[...] When I got to my room I was even more dissapointed. The carpet was very dirty and soiled that I didn't walk on it without shoes. T he toliet seem to have issues with the water running all night. The shower was not cleaned well,the towels were dirty and looked like they were not cleaned properly, the beadspread was torn and seem to have some short of red stain. [...]I will never [...] stay at the Costa Baja Hotel. And further more I will inform my friends and family to stay away from this hotel in Ensenada [...].

OK if roughing it

Our room was just above the reception desk, near the bar, and over the pool area. Nearly all day long, and one night until 2200, loud music blared from one or other of these locations. Nearly impossible to get an afternoon nap. Other than that, the rooms were moderately clean and comfortable. Good location, very nice jacuzzi near pool, and the price was right.
