Don't bother trying to argue this isn't the Hotel California from the Eagles song. They've heard it all before. Anyway it's a quaint hotel in a quaint town, with a great bar and great food. Short stays only in my opinion because, unless you're visiting friends, there's just not much to do in town (again, in my opinion).

We made our way up the coast from Cabos San Lucas to see the famed hotel and have a drink at their bar. The bartenders here know exactly what they are doing. The margaritas we made with limes squeezed right before making them. They had a variety, so you're sure to find one you like. Hit up the little shop...

We drove the short trip (45 minutes) from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos to explore the coast and visit the tiny town. Probably the number 1 tourist attraction there is the Hotel California. We hand breakfast on the charming outdoor patio. Without question, I had the best French toast I have ever eaten there. The bread is made in...

So it's as you would expect in Mexico...totally touristy. I have to say I was surprised how small the actual town is. We drove from Cabo for an hour to visit. Not much to see on a Sunday, seemed almost deserted! So the nacho's at the Hotel California were really good!! I would have them again, and I recommend them...

No matter if you believe this is or is not the inspiration for the Eagles hit single, this place can stand on its own by charm alone. We always walk around, take in the ambiance, and buy shirts and caps for gift giving. Very cool. Personally, we believe this is the song's true inspiration. It's just so perfect.

The building looked nice and the food was pretty good. Granted we were only there for breakfast but not much there to celebrate the Eagles, not even their music was playing. On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair.....

My hubby and I had breakfast here. The food was expensive and not great. Seemed to be all men working there and lacked a personal feel. Maybe it would be a good place for a Friday night party, but not breakfast. For that, go to Las Fuentes.
