Perhaps the only hotel in this border town that caters to dental (and other medical) tourism, Hotel Hacienda Los Algodones is very basic, and I mean basic. There are no closets, no light fixtures to cover the bulbs screwed into sockets in the ceiling and no heat. They do provide each room with a space heater which considering the southern location, is quite adequate, though loud. Important to note is that the hotel is owned by the same person as the Sani Dental Clinic and offers considerably lower prices to those getting dental work done there. It sits on the edge of town at the end of a dirt road in a windswept unkemp landscape. When I was there, they were doing construction and the pounding started at 7 and continued on until 9 pm. So guest comfort was not a top priority. The rooms are clean, towels are old, furniture is rustic Mexican style that is poorly made so the drawers fall out if you're not careful. They don't clean or straighten up the room until you check out. There is a small restaurant with a limited menu and although there is a bar in the courtyard, they do not serve any sort of alcohol. You can buy alcohol at a liquor store a few blocks away and drink it with your meal, in the courtyard, in your room if you wish. The food in the restaurant is prepared fresh to order and is decent, simple food. Free coffee is provided in the morning. If you're having dental work done in Los Algodones, this is pretty much the only game in town. The other option is to stay in the US, drive to the border and then walk the short way to whatever clinic you're using. I would not recommend this as a vacation destination - there's nothing to do here and not much to see. Just endless outdoor mercados with cheap jewelry and chotchkes.
