“They tried to Rip me Off”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

I booked a room here for the night of October 16 through Orbitz on advice from my family in Tijuana. When I got there they said they could not find my reservation even though I already paid through Orbitz. They wanted to charge me $170 for a room when Orbitz already charged me $85. They finally gave in after about 15-20 minutes and after I started raising my voice and scowling at them. Later they sent someone to lock the minibar which was rude. They seemed dishonest and I think they wanted to rip me off because I'm American and I don't speak Spanish. The Marriot is a much better option. I'll never go back to the Camino Real.

I have been in this hotel for so many times. I hightly recommend this hotel, because it is very close to the border and is located in the best area of Tijuana, where you can find entertainment, restaurants, and shopping. The hotel is very clean, and for the price is very affordable. There are two restaurants inside the hotel, one of them is offer an excellent buffet on the weekends, and if you are looking for something more formal, there is Maria Bonita Restaurant.

The camino real is probably the best hotel you can stay in when you travel to Tijuana. The location is pretty good, by the way very close to the US-border, the rooms are big, very clean and have a high standard, which is normal for hotels of the Camino Real chain. However, in comparison to other hotels of this chain the design of the building is rather modern-boring. The place feels also very safe and you can have a very good-night sleep.

The Camino Real Tijuana does not disappoint. The location is great, next to Plaza Rio (for shopping) and away from the Avenida Revolucion, so you can enjoy the real Tijuana and the nice restaurants of the Zona Rio. The room is spacious and they upgraded to HD TVs since my last visit. The staff is very professional and welcoming, the hotel clean and modern.

My wife and I stayed at the Camino Real in Tijuana for two nights with our small children, ages 8 months and 2.5 years. The front desk staff was friendly and spoke english. The service was good and the rooms were very clean and up to expectation. Security at the hotel seemed to be good and the location was awesome. I do wish the hotel had a pool for out kids, but its not the end of the world. There is a wonderful big modern grocery store directly across the street and on the other side of the intersection there is a very nice modern shopping mall. The hotel only a few minutes cab ride to revolution ave for those who want to see all the traditional tourist type shops. Overall we felt safe staying at the Camino Real and safe in general staying in the area. It was definitely not the negative image that the media paints it to be. We crossed the border using Greyhound and it was a very fast easy simple process going both ways.

I was upgraded for free upon arrival to a suite on the top floor. I'm still not sure why, although I'm not complaining! The staff was friendly, except for the waiter in breakfast restaurant. He was a little sub par. Everyone else was great though. The hotel itself was very pretty with lots of stone flooring throughout. The room was very spacious and had lots of outlets for use. The bathroom was very pretty, good quality toilettries. The balcony looked over Tijuana, so what can you say, except that it was nice to have a balcony. Parking was interesting - tiny little spots - and the area around the hotel was so-so. We were able to walk to some good restauarants and bars, though.
