My sister and I stayed here for a few nights either side of our 3 day kayak trip to Isla Espiritu Santo in Jan 2011. With their midweek special, the $50 price tag was brilliant after being ripped off in Todos Santos. The room was clean and comfortable, with two double beds and a very decent sized bathroom. All was clean, and there are some shared kitchen facilities and a lovely rooftop deck overlooking the harbour with a couple of hammocks. Hugo on the front desk was very helpful with restaurant suggestions!
The hotel is very secure, with iron gates keeping unwanted visitors out (mind you, I felt safer in Baja than I did in NYC!). There is a small convenience store just across the street for breakfast supplies and beer, and its just a short 5min walk to the malecon and heaps of reasonably priced restaurants with AMAZING fresh food! We had a car, and there was free car-parking on-site.
The only small problem we had was that the shared kitchen area was RIGHT outside our room, and it seemed that a group who was preparing for a tour was gathering there early one morning. Americans talk really REALLY loudly, so that woke me up.
If you're going to stay here though, do yourself a MASSIVE favour and take a tour of Isla Espiritu Santo! We booked with Mar Y Aventuras, affiliated with the hotel, and their office is just next to the hotel reception. Miguel, our guide was amazing, and we camped for a few nights and explored the island by kayak and snorkelling. We swam with the sea lions and snorkelled with the manta rays, and were fed fresh local cuisine each day! Really reasonably priced and an amazing experience!
