A surprise at $47 a night for my honey and our two pups. I thought it would be twice that. That was a posted price, so not an odd moment. Nice pool, great restaurant and service. Huge double porch area. Room had a lot of space. Open a sliding glass door to the covered porch and walk on the very...

This is a Baja style resort just N of the Loreto Malecon meaning it is a bit rough but has all the amenities you would expect(pools, restaurant, bar). If you get lucky as we were, you might meet some Mexican Tele-Novella stars, since during our last stay they were filming at the resort. The Desert Inn has buildings that house...

My wife and I needed a short break from the heat of south Texas and from work. So we headed impromptu to Santa Fe, one of our favorite resting places within driving distance. Although we had utilized the spa at Loretto, we have never stayed there. The other favored places were sold out on the nights we were going to...

I liked the hotel. Great pools and grounds. Rooms plain, but large and clean, and hot water. Even fireplace, not sure if ever used. Nice staff, views of the water. A short walk on the beach to the malecon. The beach is little rocky with grey sand, but that is the way beaches in Loreto are. Breakfast was fine, lunch...

Conveniently located at the end of the malecon in Loreto, the Desert Inn is a nice, back-front property. The beach itself is a bit dirty, rather than sandy, but the view is still beautiful. The rooms are very large, bright, clean, and we've been pleased every time we've stayed here. The hotel's status as "pet-friendly" seems a bit uncertain... On...

We rented a house in town and someone in the complex mentioned this location as having a very nice beach. We walked there to check it out and found the location to be very nice. Right on the beach, very nice pool. The manager was nice enough to show us a room and they looked really clean and nice. We...

We found this hotel very clean, accommodating, and the staff friendly. Wifi was not accessible in our room but had no problem in the lobby or outside courtyard. Very reasonably priced hotel for one that is on the beach. Lots of seaglass to be found! I would skip the restaurant as I believe there are a lot better places in...

I`ve always found the government run hotels in Baja to be hit and miss as far as quality. There is little monetary incentive so it all depends on the current manager. Right now the Desert Inn, Loreto is great. The rooms are huge and clean, a very large balcony on the second floor, lots of hot water, nice big clean...

The check in area and pool were OK, but no bar or food as claimed. The rooms were spartan but clean and tolerable. The beach area was not what I would think a Baja beach should be, large grained sand and rocks. The Desert Inn was not as bad as the other reviews claimed but it also wasn’t the best...
