“TOP QUALITY LOW PRICE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

Stayed ther twice March 18th, and March 22nd of this year. Four of us in the room which had a kitchen 550 pesos. The kitchen super clean, cold refrigerator, stove worked well, they supplied dishes, plenty of hotwater, good television receiption had two tvs, only thing missing was a swimming pool but for 550 pesos, super large place, super clean, great customer relations, safe area, one block to oxxo which stayed open all night, half a block to the gas station and far enough from the tourist traps but close enough to walk there. I recommend with not just 5 stars but six. Cant wait to go again. They are constantly improving the place. Just a secret I stayed in room 13. And the manager/owner.and his family were super friendly. Viva Motel America

Room Tip: rooms facing west, or towards federal police station are best in the early morning sun.

Not especially nice, not horrible either. Reasonably comfortable. A fairly short walk to the main tourist area with a selection of restaurants. I felt safe at the motel and safe walking back and forth to the restaurants. If you're just passing through, this isn't a bad place to crash for a night.

Internet here was awful. Was here for 2 weeks and not enough was done to fix it. Owner of the hotel dismissed the problem and ignored my report, and instead he raised his voice and argued with me and we were nearly shouting when I reported the problem to him.

Don't bother going here. It's too long a walk from town and the harbour. You can get something closer to the harbour for 1/2 the price if you look hard enough. Do that. There's lots of places that are this cheap in Ensenada.

Short two block walk to "down-town". Cheap , quiet compared to the hotel's down-town. Having a stove and refridgerater was nice. (made our own breakfast and coffee) No real "view" but very clean. You can go by most of the positive reviews here...I just added some more photo's.

Room Tip: Inside rooms away from street are quieter. (there are only a few on the street)

have been there many times with my parents.america is not a luxurious hotel.but it is quaint and simply for the price i believ of 420 pesos now per nite everyday .no price hikes on friday or saturday.it is close to the casino,oxxo,downtown.i usually take a taxi to the downtown area where the clubs are at.they charged me like 30 pesos .cheap.the hotel has cable and free wifi.i have mostly stayed in rooms 9 and 10. the housekeeping ladies are great .very attentive and friendly.the owners are also very nice older.but let young people have fun and enjoy.of course without problems. all the rooms come with a kitchen where you can buy your own food and cook there.the owners let us borrow some pans.but now that you know bring your own.never had problems here.would definitely recommend.call in advance for holidays or special weekends as the rooms do sell out. i will be going there again for the fourth of july.thanks.

Room Tip: well the hotel is located on a busy street and on the weekends there is alot of traffic noise and si...

We were first shown room 16 with a kitchen and breakfast bar. The bed was really hard and the room cold. We ended up in room 3 which was closer to the office, warmer, had good wifi and a bigger kitchen with a round table, tv and better all round. The owners gave us some pots and pans to use and there is a great supermarket close by. It is a basic motel but clean and very good value at 320 pesos a night.
