“Lies, Lies and more lies”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Booking.com does an excellent job in hiding and faking all the disadvantages of this hotel!
There is not Air Conditioned; There is not cable( Only one channel), Swimming Pool is too small,The hotel is and feels old and maintenance is not at the top.
Advantage: Nice view of the Ocean and access to the beach ( have to take a hard look)

Room Tip: Negotiate the price of this hotel for $39.00 per night which should be a fair price for the present...

It may well be one of the big secrets of Rosarito.

Tucked in a quiet street, it presents all the rustic charm of old-world Mexico. The red tiles, the pueblo architecture, the wrought-iron bed.

I liked sleeping and waking up to the changing colors of Rosarito sky.

Amazingly, it is well-kept, and allergen-free during my stay.

The best part is that it's close to horseback rides, ATV excursions, and authentic restaurants in the area.

Immense and wonderful views, incredible private beach with cave. Was quoted 60, then 50, and finally 40 dollars for a room with a single bed. Other, newer, cleaner hotels in neighborhood cost 20.

Location is to die for, great staff, better bar, and best views. Room was less than clean though, it SMELLED dirty and damp. I did'nt get bitten by any bedbugs though. Ran outta there early AM trying to beat border lines on a sunday morning.

I'd go back just for the beach and the decent bar. Ignore that nasty pool and get down the cliffs to the water.

I looked for a place to stay in Rosarito at the last minute and couldn't find anything with availability. When we arrived in Rosarito, I found the hotel and was pleasantly surprised.

There was a guard who made sure that you were either a guest or a resident of the area before you were allowed in.

The check in process was easy, cash only, and the room was very clean (no fleas). The view was great and my overall experience was fine for $78.00.

Just got back from a short holiday in Rosarito. We stayed here our first night, and though the views and the sounds of the pounding surf were wonderfully soothing, the fleas that bit us all night in the bed and the stains all over the bedsheets and comforter were not. I am NOT a pampered princess......I could have forgiven the small size of the room, the general dinginess and the suspicious stains on the wall (blood?? or??); after all, I'm not Suzy Homemaker myself, and the quaint Mexican furnishings had a certain charm......and for the whole afternoon, we hung on the balcony, playing guitar and enjoying the beautiful soothing Pacific Ocean. Everything was fine until we went to sleep and the fleas started biting. For that reason alone, we left the next morning and will not stay here again.
