Actual stay was Dec 2009 (not '10) but better late than never...
We found Casa Jalisco by accident online and it seemed to fit our needs - we avoid "resorts" and like to mingle with the locals so the location seemed fine. Arrived in town (by bus from Cabo) late in the evening and found a cabby who knew the way. He was even attentive enough to escort us to the door and make SURE we were looked after (for a very fair $10 fare +tip). Juan and the staff welcomed us and made sure everything was handled smoothly, even at the late hour. They even pointed out a local restaurant a couple of blocks away that was still open at 10 on a Sunday so we could get dinner.
Sadly, I came down with a bug (not related to the restaurant that I can determine) and was quite ill all night and into the next day. Juan got us down to the breakfast room and poured juice, made toast and acted like a true host, not just an innkeeper. We talked and shared life stories for a couple of hours and felt at home.
Stayed three nights and had a great time while recuperating. WALKED down to the Malecon (30 min.) - and got to see the 'normal' La Paz enroute. Took a cab back after dinner and never regretted a bit of it. All the time the staff were exceptional and attentive.
Would stay again without hesitation and except for those who need resort amenities, it's an excellent choice. The traffic noise comments are valid, but it was no worse than any other urban hotel and balanced by the rest of the ambiance.
One heck of a good deal and a pleasant visit.
