We stayed here for the Baha 1000 as racers...only had one room but they managed another for us. No hidabeds available...no pool or hot tub. Restaurant was OK. I like the place but felt like that ugly gringo from the way the waitress looked at us. We were having a great time...the workers didn't seem to be.. sorry if we...

Don't think you can do better at the reasonable price point anywhere in Baja. Unless, the sound of the surf at night bothers you. Then maybe you should stay home. Friendly attentive servic, clean room. Good food. Adequate pArking.

The hotel is pretty nice. Some odd choices on room layout here and there. For example, you kind of have to step over the toilet to get into the shower. It was pretty much tile and stucco everywhere and mostly done well. The room was clean and the TV worked, the balcony opened to an ocean view. The wifi was...

Went on a recruiting trip for the University I work for. The hotel was super quiet at night I was able to listen to the ocean, it was heaven! Shower was clean and also the tolilet. Mini size shampoo and soap in your shower room. The water presure was not the best but that is just my preferance. You have...

This is the best hotel that is directly on the beach at San Quintin. It is a beautiful beach, a very, very, nice hotel, and the prices are a bit steep, for Baja, but very reasonable for the States. The hotel is owned by the same gentleman that owns the Molino Viejo restaurant on the bay. The hotel food is...

For being in the middle of nowhere, Hotel is great. The pool was fun. The bartender was friendly. The food was average. We use the hotel for our first night and a complete Baja Peninsula road trip. The hotel worked out very well for our purposes.

We had stayed at this exceptional hotel a few times over the past 40 years. It had changed hands several times during that time and a sincere effort is being made to keep it in good condition. Our last visit was to the dining room. We found the ambiance impressive and the food very good. The service was formal and...

Mision Santa Maria Hotel San Quintin – room 131, June 8. Another former La Pinta hotel. This one is on the beach with beautiful views and very well kept grounds. We were on the second floor with a private balcony, so the views were terrific. Very cool sand dunes on the beach. Two queen beds in the room, no hair...

I have stayed in the old La Pinta hotels up and down the Baja for many years. As the La Pintas, they were out dated, rundown and not the cleanest. Now this hotel in San Quintin is called Hotel Mision Santa Maria and is in much better shape. It still a bit outdated but clean friendly and helpful staff. The...
