Good hotel for Ensenada

Would recommend Thu, Sep 24, 2015
We stay at the San Nicholas 2 -3 times a year when we visit Ensenada. It is close enough to the tourist zone for access yet far enough away so that the noise isn't too bad. Good vehicle security with a manned gate. Nice pool. Rooms are typical for Ensenada, built in 70s.

I come to Ensenada several times a year for work and pleasure. The San Nicolas is my favorite pool in Ensenada at any of the hotels in the downtown area. Walking distance to town and private guarded parking is always nice.

Great value!

Would recommend Mon, Oct 6, 2014
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.

Money saver
