“Baja HaHa”
Reviewed 28 October 2004

Following a work assignment in San Diego, made a spontaneous weekend trip to Ensenada. After bouncing off a couple of hotels without vacancies, got a room at the 50+/- unit 4-story Costa Baja Inn (aka the Costa Baja Hotel), located at Boulevard Lazaro Cardenas #1536 in Ensenada. As long as you're a walker hotel is conveniently located approximately 2 blocks south of the cruise terminal, an equal distance from the shop, bar, and restaurant lined Avenida Lopez Mateos, and within an easy walk of the Malecon and fish market.

Aside from the convenient location, the major attribute the hotel's got going for it is that the $65-75 room was clean and well maintained. The downsides are the same room is a generic motel box, without any character or charm. When we checked in, the room was equipped with a couple of bars of paper-wrapped soap, a single packet of shampoo, and a disposible razor which we avoided as a possible leftover from the past guest. The following day, however, a full collection of toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion) appeared along with bottled drinking water, leading us to wonder just how the room was supposed to be outfitted.

The real downsides, and reason's I'd recommend against staying at the property were:

1. Room service, which is provided by the "Las Bajas" Restaurant and Bar sited on the property was terrible. The person answering the phone, which turned out to be the restaurant manager was rude, refusing to discuss what fruit was available at breakfast, curtly stating "I'm busy". The order delivered was not what ordered and the same restaurant manager hotly disputed the problem and then dispatched a hulking son to the room to "see what the problem was".

2. Monday morning at 9 AM sharp a cacaphony of power saws and drills buzzed to life as renovation work was being performed on a room down the hall. A complaint to the front desk yielded nothing but the vague assurance the noise would stop "in just a few minutes" (it was still going on an hour later).

At check out, a complaint both about the room service problem and the noise issue yielded nothing more than a blank stare from the so-called "assistant manager" at the reception desk.
