This place attracts tourists! You can stay there and eat there. They have a nice interior and a big souvenir shop. Also they organise some music in the evening. We went there just to take a look but the clients who stayed there for a lunch looked pretty satisfied.

I first visited the illustrious Hotel California back in 2001, when it was a shuttered derelict building. I recall thinking, "How could you NOT make money owning this place ?". Apparently, I wasn't the only one who thought that way, because it was purchased at about that same time. The renovation work was very well done and the place is...

We were staying at the JW Marriott Resort in Los Cabos. Decided to take a drive out to see the legendary Hotel California - which the Eagles rock band made famous. Much to our surprise, is not located in California at all, but rather Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico! It was about 1 1/2 hours drive by car out of downtown...

We visited here. This is a good hotel in an artsy town a short, scenic drive up the Pacific coast from Cabo San Lucas (or San Jose del Cabo, where we actually stayed--charming smaller city). Great lobby at Hotel California. It is not the hotel in the Eagles' song, although they were actually playing it when we got there. "Welcome...

While vacationing at the Sandos Finisterra resort, we chose an excursion to Tados Santos to visit the legendary Hotel California. We joined eight other people in a small van for the 90-minute trip to Tados Santos. The driver was very knowledgeable, sharing interesting information about the countryside through which we traveled, with comments on the flora and fauna along the...

It wasn't bad. Some of the decor was charming, and they were playing Last Resort, my favorite Eagles song. It wasn't good, either. Food-wise, it was likely the blandest, dullest food in town. not terrible, just boring and lacking in flavor. My husband left a taco on his plate, and it wasn't because he was full. I have to say,...

Love the eclectic decor. Bright colors and tile throughout. This was our 4th trip to Todos Santos but our first time at Hotel California. Our room was fun but not a lot of amenities so take your own hair dryer, no tv. You would have to ask for more shampoo, lotion etc. Bed was very comfortable with great linens. We...

Very pretty decor (lots of art and a nice gift shop) and the music was great. Would love to stay overnight sometime. There was a terrific art festival going on with very talented artists lining the street.

In a really great village. Shrimp taco was killer. Great place to visit and I'd like to go back and stay in this village. There was a beautiful courtyard and some nice shores. Worth checking out if in area
