The owners and staff were amazing here. I forgot my purse with passports in it at our dinner table after too many margaritas- we left the next day without it, realized down the road, came back and they had it stored for us. The property was super clean, food was good and The margaritas excellent!

This hotel is very clean and very reasonably priced. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The hotel has a restaurant. We had dinner there, and it was very good . The hotel is also convenient to the highway. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling the Baja.

We had been driving for 10.5 hours through the Baja where there is absolutely nothing but desert. Once the sun set, it was pitch black with absolutely no light. We had read the review on the Halfway Inn and were so relieved to see that it was the very first hotel we spotted once we arrived. We were not disappointed,...

Stopped along our trip down the Baja at Guerro Negro. This is the first hotel along highway Mexico 1 just before you get to the turnoff for town. We ate at the hotel and the food was , to our surprise, excellent, in particular the seafood was extremely fresh and flavorful. The margaritas are outstanding and Manuel our waiter and...

The front staff were great and our dinners were also good. The margaritas were really well done and were just what we needed. Yes the wifi was only in the lobby but that was identified. It's a bit dated but the room was big and clean. I did get bitten but the doors were open in the restaurant and bar...

You can do better in Guerrero Negro at TerraSal... we stayed at the Halfway Inn on the way north, and it was halfway okay. Since we're driving we carry our own pillows, which helped in this case. The room was clean but buggy - bed was comfortable. There is no wifi in the rooms - we were mislead on that....

Light went out several times at night, no air conditioner, room in poor conditions with only a little fan and a lot of mosquitoes, however good restaurant with good service and nice lobby with pinpong and pool tables.

I took a road trip from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas and this was the perfect "Halfway" overnight stop along the way. This ain't the Ritz, this is Baja.There are some pretty bad reviews here for a place that offers all it does for about $35/night during my stay. The room was super clean, comfortable bed, air conditioned, and...

Halfway Inn Guerrero Negro – room 118, June 7. This is another former La Pinta hotel, with a different lobby/bar/restaurant/common area arrangement. We were happy to get a room with a king bed. The staff was terrific but the hotel common areas are in dire need of some maintenance and repairs. Our room was clean and everything worked, though we...
