Don't expect something fantastic, but the place has its advantages like a good and safe location (it's close to the main street with shops, restaurants) and cheap fares. The room was clean and comfortable, although there was no fridge or microwave. No windows as well, which made it pretty dark. Also, if that's one of your standards, be aware that... More

Can't complain too much considering the price. $20 per night for a room. But aside from that, the phone didn't work in my room, the Wi-Fi didn't work, and the shower was so dirty, I chose not to use it. Not worth it, even for the price.

Stayed here for a night as I had a flight to catch from Tijuana airport in the morning. Location is a good, towards the end of Revolucion - only a 10 or 15 minute walk to Zona Norte which seemed to be what most foreign visitors were in Tijuana for. The room was acceptable considering the cheap price as the... More

If, like this time, I'm crossing the border late and just need to crash, this is a good place based on price and location. At the south end of Revolution Blvd., there are restaurants and an Oxxo just outside. $30 single, $40 double Feb. 2014. The motel itself is in an OLD structure, with upgrades grafted on top. Some walls... More

The motel is located right on the corner with the main street with all bars, restaurants and shops.The price is very low.Don't expect any cleanliness or tranquillity that's not the reason why to go to Mexico anyway.

The Motel Leon has offerings that few other Hotels have and only for $40/night (low season). The hotel actually has only 3 TV channels that come in, but one of them is a pornography channel and unlike most hotels, The Motel Leon's parking is FREE. Their parking situation is a bit like this as well, there are only a few... More
