This may not be your 5 star resort hotel but it sure is homey and comfortable. I LOVED staying here. I got great value for the money, the place was clean and inviting. The hosts Gerardo & Debora are top notch. So helpful, and make you feel like family. The location is perfect for walking anywhere to town centre or... More

What a great place to stay - comfy, pretty, fruit trees, flowers, multiple private garden areas, hammocks, huggable resident pets and people! It's as colorful as the owners who are involved in so many local, interesting projects. The accommodations are smack in the center of town, walk to the Malecon, beach, restaurants, shops: and it's quiet at night so you... More

We stayed in a junior suite along the front of the hotel in a large, first floor room. The setting was lovely and the owners were very helpful. There is a open air kitchen for everyone's use that was very inviting. The location is perfect - center of town and near everything. We never got into the car until we... More

Great place! Friendly, helpful proprietors, Debora and Gerardo. This inn is peaceful and yet in an excellent central location. It has a lovely patio and a flower & bird-filled garden. Comfortable, spacious, warm accommodations. Walk out the door and head left to the central plaza and historic church and museum, or turn right and stroll down the beautiful pedestrian way... More

Stayed at La Damiana in late Feb and really enjoyed meeting Deborah and Gerardo. Gerardo is very committed to xeroscaping the boulevard which is currently sod. He's also very interested in educating the locals about science. The room was very roomy, queen size bed and twin bed. Interesting interior window that opened to a small enclosed courtyard. I did not... More

Before embarking on a kayak trip from Loreto to LaPaz, I had the opportunity to stay at La Damiana Inn. The place is spacious, clean, warm, and inviting. Debora and Gerardo are able to help you negotiate everything from best restaurants to other suitable inns (they had no availability on my return, but helped me sort that out), to cash... More

We loved La Damiana. It's got the feeling of a bed and breakfast, but the opportunity to cook whatever you like in the shared kitchen. The setting and location were fantastic. Close to the pedestrian district and the waterfront and restaurant. Gerardo was very helpful in recommending places of interest around town, as well as sharing history for the area... More

We stopped in Loreto on our way back from LaPaz to Mulege, where we had been staying for a month. Our plan was to do a quick overnight just to get the flavor of the place.

Great spot to stay a night before and after sea kayak trips....very homey atmosphere. Clean but also a unique and old setting. The garden is amazing and the common kitchen allows for getting to know other people who don't necessarily want a resort experience.
