Should we talk about the fleas swirling in the lobby first? We stayed here for the biannual Rosarito Beach to Ensenada bicycle ride. I booked based on location and the web-site that made the place look pretty cool (the place is not cool). After getting keys I attempted to insert the key, but no need, the door swung open on its own. Hmmmm, unusual. Turns out we couldn't lock from the inside either as it was obvious a recent break-in had occurred in this room. With a bit of discussion with the clerk, he agreed to move us. This hallway light was burned out as was the room light. Ahhhhhhhhhh, the room! The carpet could be described as a high-end rag that has never had a cleaning. The carpet was layed so that the installers cut around the bed with a dull scissor. The bed was a half-notch quality above a rollaway. We were required to wear blue bands for security, but we came and went without any acknowledgement. Since we were going to ride bicycles for 50 miles, we wanted a good night's sleep. Not possible: we had to open the windows for fresh air because THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING. So what's wrong with open windows? The blare of music from the strip joint which is a block away. Is there a need to hear music outside a business? I am looking for words to describe how loud it was. I can't. The hallways are designed so that a burglar could easily jump on the patio to the end unit where one of us was staying. Don't use the handrail to steady yourself, you'll come up with a blackened hand. This place was probably Old World-Chic when it was built. Today it's just a sagging relic of a past era. I can't recommend this hovel to anyone except those passing through on the lam.
