This hotel is in the heart of it all and close to everything, yet is peaceful and wonderful. The rooms are very basic - no frills of any kind - but when we are in Cabo we don't want to spend all our time in the room! Loved the little terrace where we could sit outside, have a drink, and...

Lower price basic hotel in the Centro district of Los Cabos. Real close to lots of good food and shopping. Room was basic, no appliances other then a TV. Had clean, comfy beds and a nice little patio. Staff was friendly, pool was small but perfect escape from the heat. Would recommend to someone not interested in the 5 star...

Just keep coming back to our hideaway in Cabo. Best kept secret.. 20 some years ago a travel agent friend set us up here, and we just keep coming back. Everyone is very nice here we love the people we meet.. It is in town close to some of the greatest restaurants. Close to shopping, and the marina. Pool is...

This hotel is only a block away from the Marina and close to everything in downtown Cabo. There's a very nice, peaceful, cultural experience when you stay here. The prices are amazing! There's a nice pool and bar that serves discounted drinks and very good food at a very good price. It's across the street from Cabo Wabo. It's 2...

This is a perfect cute little hotel. Rooms were a bit dated but they are working on that. The bed was excellent. The rooms are clean and it is the perfect location. Close to everything. Staff is friendly. Breakfast was included and it was good.

This place could so easily be a 5 star recommendation, but just isn't quite there. The location, being my first consideration, is nothing short of excellent. This is not a resort hotel off on its own, like so many, it's right in the heart of the city. A half block from Cabo Wabo, dozens of shops, bars and restaurants within...

Nothing spectacular - but if you want a place to sleep in town, close to all of the action, this will fill the bill. The positives - great location; clean; swimming pool; on site restaurant; helpful staff The negatives - the beds were too hard for our liking; very noisy throughout the complex (we were in the back and were...

We have no complaints about our 10 night stay. Our immediate reaction was how much charm there is upon entering. And that charm continues throughout the hotel with pretty landscaping and walkways. All the staff we came in contact with were helpful and friendly. Our room was spotless and in a nice mainly quiet location. We saw continual cleaning and...

Wow, pussandboots... whatta review! Talk about 'all inclusive'. That's exactly what your review was... You touched on everything and in so doing will help others make their choice for a downtown hotel. I enjoyed working with you as you put together your travel plans to Cabo. It's the personal touch that really makes the difference we believe. Thanks again, and...

Stayed here for a week. Great location. Close to everything. A couple of minutes walk to everything, Marina, mall, restaurants, shops, bus stop, bars...around the corner from Cabo Wabo. The hotel is a very simple, no frills, old Mexico kind of place that has been run by the same family for generations. Almost all guests were American or Canadian. Ran...

Thank you, michael5810, for your most favorable review. We are so glad you, as a first timer, found what you were looking for... location, service, hospitality, value and... location! Yes, if you are looking to be downtown, then this is indeed the spot. We hope to see you again and thank you for taking the time to review our property.

I will start with the Great and there is much of that to go around. I am giving them a 4 instead of a 5 (or a 3) because the place is beautiful, spotless, and even though you are in the heart of downtown and in the middle of it all when you step out the front door, when you...

Thank you, Michele V, for our lengthly review. Others will appreciate everything you have said. Including the mattress issue. As you will read in previous responses I've made, in fact we do have folks who ask us how can they get a mattress like they had at the MDC, or they say they loved the mattresses and pillows. That doesn't...
