This place is nice, the food at the restaurant is good. I like the location, a block from Avenida de los Heroes which is one of the main avenues, close to shops, restaurants and movie theatres (Plaza Rio). Some of the rooms are motel style (outdoor) and some are inside, I would ask for a room inside the building, might... More

Nice hotel, friendly staff. I was surprised when I discovered this hotel blocked Internet streaming. Internet speeds of 10 megs + but this was useless to me when I couldn't update apps or what's any of my streaming services. This was a BIG let down at a decent hotel.

We really enjoyed our experience at this hotel. Everything was very clean, the staff was friendly and it was very safe. The location is great and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The parking garage was convenient and easily accessible.

There's mix reviews for this hotel, overall it was a pleasant experience, the room was clean and cleaned well on our 2nd night. No major issues except for the TV remote not working and we couldn't change the channel manually, the buttons on the TV didn't work, it didn't matter because we weren't interested in watching TV. The front desk... More

Felt safe the whole time. We came down to visit some old friends. The hotel is nothing fancy, but the service is decent and the room was clean. Would go back. The only inconvenience we had was our first night we were put in a double bed room instead of King. Other than that it was great for a couple... More

This place is a "cute hotel" little yet elegant. So small that no room service is available at night time. I stayed here about 3 times. Breakfast is good. Service is good during the day, at night time staff is so limited you have to go to the lobby to get anything. For example we asked for a glass to... More

This Hotel is located in a very nice and safe part of Tijuana. Good shopping within walking distance and it's in the center of the medical tourism area. The hotel itself was average and the staff was not particularly friendly or helpful. But, . . . I gave it a "Very Good" anyway based of location and price.
