Enjoyable weekend!!

Walking distance to downtown and also to the port. Great staff. Very attentive. Great pool area. Buffet is unbeatable for the price. Casino on the premises is a plus. Guarded parking area was one of the reasons for choosing this hotel

Great Experience

This hotel feels like it is from a different age. Remember how you used to go places because they were all you could afford? This place has that feel. You would go to this hotel to remember to good old days (even if they weren't so good). The decor is old and a bit run down. The walls are thin. The pool with the water fall really need to be cleaned up. The hot water in the shower is only warm. They give you casino credit of 100 pesos, but you can only cash out at $1500 pesos. The room AC is new, and it really pumps out the cold air. It is strange, give the place a chance and it will grow on you. It is a bargain compared to anything in the US. It has a prime location. I think it is the only Hotel/Casino combo in the whole city. It is not crowded, so the thin walls don't matter. And the rooms and hallways have a weird 70s vibe to them. Like I said, it just has that "remember the good old days" feel about it.

This hotel is just outside of the edge of the shopping/tourist district. It is a pleasant walk over a bridge to get there.

A very memorable time! (Family Friendly)

My wife and I tried this hotel after readin a lot of mixed reviews. For the money it's an okay place but then you are in Mexico and not paying 4 or 5 star hotel price either. It's pretty close to the action, a 3 or 4 dollar taxi ride. We preferred walkin and felt pretty safe. The breakfast brunch is awesome, first person is 120 & second person for 95 pesos which comes under 20 bucks. Staff is awesome. Icing on the cake, you get a fast pass which let's you cross the border within 20 minutes. My personal advise to my fellow Americans, when you write bad review about any hotel, please remember that you are NOT in US.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

All the bars & clubs are about 10 short blocks or a 3 to 4 dollars taxi ride. Takes less than five minutes. Casino at the hotel is not bad either. Infact my 20 bucks lasted me for about 2 hours of slot machine play.

A Day in Ensanada

It was a great location and a good price. The only complaint was the noise in the room below us where I believe the party went a little to late

Ensenada get away

Difficult time trying to find this place initially, once located, it was easily accessible to beaches, food, shopping. Staff helpful, friendly, bilingual. rooms clean, comfortable, air condiioned, and quiet. Secure, guarded parking area. The disappointing issue was having to change rooms on the last night because of early morning work being done on the floor where the room was. I'm sure this is an unusual request, I would not hesitate to stay here again because of this. I felt safe staying here. great value for the money.

There are a variety of walk up Mexican eateries that have excellent food. The best I've ever had, I would go back just for the food! Beaches were uncrowded, water warm, surf not rough.Alot of new construction going on so I expect more from Ensenada in the future.

San Nicolas

It is not in the center of the main street but its only few blocks away. For those that like casinos this hotel has one the main floor and the staff was great they. We got the service of an expensive hotel without having to pay the high end price.

Great value!

The room was large, clean, and comfortable, but the best was the giant swimming pool. This hotel location was pretty good, just 3 blocks from the center, therefore wasn't noisy. Staff very helpful.
