This is a very nice place. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the beach, and close to downtown. The rooms are very pleasant and clean. I would stay here again.

Loved it. Very clean and stylish. Friendly staff, reasonable rates. I'd stay there again. Numerous eatery options for guests available right in the courtyard. 2 blocks from a nice Oceanside walkway. Had a secure area to park our car.

We stay at 1697 when ever in Loreto. Located in town center, warm and friendly staff and owners. Kieran creates the best craft brew in Baja! Clean cozy and wonderful food. Located just a few minutes to the malecon.

I warmly recommend to stay at this hotel and to enjoy a dinner here as well. Rooms bigger than in other cities of the Baja, cleaner and more comfortable. The irish owner is friendly and helpful and all the staff is nice as well. If indulging at the restaurant, try their chilli relleno (much better than those in La Paz)...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a week. My wife had not been to Loreto before. I had been there on several fishing trips. The hotel is in the center of the square. The hotel features a restaurant next to the bungalows. We had plenty of meals on our veranda from the restaurant. The food was good,...
