Recent guest reviews

Isaac and Anjelica always,go out of their way to ensure we have an awesome experience when my wife and I travel to Ensenada. Thanks

Anjelica at the front desk always goes out of her way to accommodate our party.

People over my room roof made its trying open my room no best experience

The rooms could use a lot of updating. Cealings were horrible. Beds were really loud and uncomfortable. Our bathroom had a leak which was "fixed" but leaft a really nasty sewer smell to the room. Housekeeper was wonderfull enough to wash it up. However the bathrooms need updatings as well.

This place is run down, it goes without satin at the price. However the linens were disgusting. I took a nap as soon as I walked in. Within hours I was itching and had bedbug bites everywhere! Stay away!

The staff was very nice and and helpful The restaurant in the hotel was very good And I loved the service at the bar at the casino they have , me and my husband will definitely come back and stay here..

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 am will be back to this hotel next time. Don't take room next to elevator, elevator make a lot of noise.

Hotel is ok,they need some upgrades,TV...I like pool, was big for this coming season

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.

hotel is nice ,staff very helpfull very good experience !!!

very good, luxury Big room, very good service. Swiming pool, hot spar

The facilities were great, love the swimming pool. The casino experience was great and the hotel is very close to down town and the famous black market. The buffet at the hotel is very good.

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.

Hotel is locate in downtown. The hotel rooms are a bit dated, beds are ok. The parking lot is secured and across the street. Swimming pool one of the best in the area.

The hotel rooms are old and filthy dirty. Was afraid to walk on carpet without sandals. Bathroom shower covered in mold. Bedding and towels old with holes and dirty. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Way over priced .

Pool was awesome, pool pretty clean, hotem room okay.

Pretty decent overall. More or less clean, helpful staff, etc. Food at the restaurant was surprisingly good; we had a fantastic breakfast that was reasonably priced. 3 jacuzzis, but none of them heated. Security guarded parking lot. Overall, I'd stay there again as a decent last minute option.

The hotel could definitely use some updating but served it's purpose for a quick trip to Ensenada. The rooms were definitely no frills but were clean and adequate. The staff was very nice and helpful. The parking was across the street in a gated lot lot which felt secure enough to leave our surfboards in the car. The hotel's location was great but was within walking distance to downtown Ensenada. For the price, the hotel was definitely worth it. Oh, seemed like a family place because there were kids all over the place.

nice little hotel if you need a room in Ensenda. had a great pool and helpful staff. little far away from the main downtown area.
