This was a decent stay. The front desk was friendly and helpful. I chose this hotel as I was traveling with my dog. The pet fees depend on the size of the dog. I paid $15 per night and that was the lower end with a medium size dog. Rooms were clean. My biggest complaint is it was very noisy....

We must have had one of the recently renovated rooms because it was beautiful. The bathroom was well appointed and lots of hot water. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. We had 2 dogs with us who like to sleep on the bed but I didn't want them on the white comforters. Fortunately I had brought sheets with me...

I stayed here with family over New Years. The rooms have been recently updated - each room is unique, colourful, modern. We had such a great experience staying here; the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The security guard doubled as the bartender at the hotel's bar for guests on the weekend (free margarita + popcorn!). The breakfast served...

The location was excellent. It was within walking distance to museums, town and grocery store. The hotel is very dated and needs refurbishing. It was rather hard to find. There was an elderly , cute dog there. The breakfast nothing to talk about.

Hello Kimi, Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I am a little confused by your review, though and I think you might have stayed somewhere else. We do not have elderly dogs here, and our rooms have been recently remodeled. Also, you mention we have a great location but you also mention it was hard to find?...

It is perfectly located on the Primera. It is a typical US-style motel with a internal courtyard serving as parking lot and rooms all around. The rooms are very old and needing renovation. However, I think it was a decent option for two nights in Ensenada and also good value for money.

Hello, Thank for your recent stay with us. We also think that our location is amazing, and we work hard at providing you the best value for your money!

Family and I recently visited family in el Sauzal , very close to Ensenada. As we have the previous 5-6 years we booked a reservation at this hotel well in advance. When I reserved over the phone I indicated I wanted the room rate that includes the fast pass. This is the main reason why we stay at this hotel...

I reached out to the hotel manager since my elderly father is handicap and would need some accommodations.

The main strip of Ensenada is where the action is. It's a very walkable area with restaurants and bars. This hotel is centrally located right off of the boulevard and offers clean rooms while on budget.
