Great rooms at a great price and very short walk to Mama Espinosa's wonderful restaurant too! The ambiance and decor at such a great representation of Mexico. We plan to stay there every time we drive down the 1 to Los Barriles. It is a great experience!!

I have stayed at the Baja Cactus every year for the last 8-10 years. It is always simply grreat! Clean oversized rooms, excellent staff, and good food close by. It is simply the Best Value in Mexico! I cannot recommend it higher!

Clean place for an overnight stop on the way down Baja. Comfortable beds and beautiful tile work in the bathrooms. TV reception from the 50's and all in Spanish but you are in Mexico so that's to be expected. World famous Mama Espinoza's Restaurant is next door.

This is a great bargain. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Although the highway goes right by the hotel, there's a wall that shields the noise, so it's quiet. The wifi is a little spotty and the staff doesn't speak English (our problem, not theirs, since we don't speak Spanish.) The price is fantastic (about $26 US for a...

It sells out quickly so make a reservation. Deluxe room are $600 pesos (super nice) and $350 pesos for the regular rooms. Clean, hot showers, and lots of TV channels if you are into TV. The beds are comfy and the staff is helpful!

This is a neat little place in El Rosario that offers a great rate on a decent room for weary travelers driving down the Baja peninsula. They are pet-friendly, which will be great when we come through there again with our 3 dogs. Mama Espinosa's is right next door for an easy dinner and breakfast option where you can see...
