“lunch at hotel California”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013

Went to check out the art district at Todos Santos and stopped for lunch at Hotel California. Evidently it's not the hotel in the Eagle's song but it is still a fun place to check out. It is In the middle of the art district which is a great place to spend a day. Hotel California has a nice patio, a nice bar and plays Eagle's music all day. Serice was very slow and not overly friendly but the food was very good and the beer cold. There are many place to eat in the art district but the Hotel California is worth at least one trip.

We went to this hotel on our trip to Mexico. It is situated in a lovely small town with markets etc... The staff at the hotel was very friendly. The hotel is historic (Eagles) and is also very private. Not anyone can visit the hotel at their leisure, you must be a customer. Our family recommends going to this hotel for a great time in Mexico!

We like this place. We have not stayed it the hotel but we often visit the bar and restaurant when it Todos Santas. Not even sure this is the true hotel from the Eagles song of the same name but it will certainly do. The drinks are good, particularly the margaritas on a hot day and the food is good. And it certainly looks the part but then you go and decide. Either way it is an interesting place and well worth a stop.

You are welcomed to The Hotel California by Hugo at the front door. He will make you feel immediately welcome and show you to a chic and comfy room. As you walk from the lobby through the hotel to your room, you will feel like you have been transported to a different space and time. Unique and artistic touches are around every corner. Secluded seating areas extend throughout the labyrinthine darkness with candles lighting corners with every seductive turn.

The bar emits a intoxicatigly different vibe. With a live band playing in the outdoor courtyard, the music invites you to dance a little. The drinks allow you to linger longer, and the food will nourish your body as well as soothe your soul. If you came to Todos Santos to unwind, your mission has been accomplished in short and and joyful moments.

We stayed in room 14 (junior suite) in late February and loved it. The folk art throughout the hotel is spectacular, the room was lovely, the patio was huge and everything was well appointed. I note that this forum is sprinkled with a few negative reviews regarding customer service, but we had nothing but great and friendly service from everyone we encountered. Our rate was established many months ago at $125 but is now $205. In our opinion, $125 is a bargain, but $205 seems a bit much. Somewhere in the middle seems fair, but the laws of supply and demand will undoubtedly reveal the right price going forward. Todos Santos is a fabulous little destination and it feels like the Hotel California is the heart of this beautiful town. Thanks to everyone at the Hotel California!

Room Tip: Room 14 is lovely and has an amazing patio

Dont get me wrong, really nice hotel but its not the real Hotel California. Its a fake tourist trap to capitalize on fans. Theres a letter that I ran into when doing my research written by Don Henley addressing this myth. Just Google (images) Don Henley Fax or Hotel California Fax.
