The setting is stunning. The rooms, while dark and dated, have a certain charm. The building itself is lovely. It is clean. That's the good - the bad is the iron cage around the patio, the complete lack of even warm let alone hot, water and the dirty weed choked patio. The repulsive is the "continental" breakfast. Nasty weak coffee,...

Dog friendly, parking right outside the room, nice terrace with a gorgeous view of the Sea of Cortez. About a mile outside of the town to the south. Several good restaurants in town.Free continental breakfast, which is never anything to get excited about, but very rare for Baja. Great place but with 2 complaints, I was promised the WIFI would...

I really enjoyed Hotel el Morro. The parking was secure, a good thing because we had an ATV in our pickup. The WIFI was a bit sketchy in our room but we were otherwise quite pleased. There is a great Chinese restaurant, yes I said Chinese, just north of the hotel, perhaps a 1/2 mile also on the water. Another...

Unbeatable location, great ocean views, clean, basic room with mismatched, worn furniture. Great terraces with wonderful views up and down the coast. This hotel has clearly seen better days. The breakfast was nothing to write home about.

For a Baja Hotel this was fine, spectacular location looking out over the Sea of Cortez. It is an old hotel but the beds were comfortable and the room clean. We stayed in a very large room with 2 queen size beds and paid only Pesos 650 (about $50) incl taxes. Included a continental breakfast.

travelling back North and needed place that would take dogs. No problemo she said! Plenty of other travellers with dogs and easy to walk. Rooms surround courtyard and we chose one overlooking water. Dated but clean. Enjoyed an evening drink from our cooler in little fenced in patio. Beware.....NO RESTAURANT despite website. Either eat before or pack a subway. Did...

Alas the place seems neglected and in need of major updating. The room was fine, but lacks lampshades. The little porch is dirty and the vinyl seatcovers uninviting. The continental breakfast consisted of seriously dried up pastries and sweet juice. There's also a devil dog by the entrance that scared me and my little dog every time we walked by!

Set just off Mex 1 on a cliff over-looking the ocean, this grand old motel is a great value. Large, clean quiet rooms, Wifi and ample parking in a huge courtyard type lot. With an ocean view room, there is a large fenced patio which made for a happy dog and a pleasant evening relaxing with a take-out pizza on...

On a recent trip down the Baja we stayed at Hotel El Morro. The room was very spacious, the view was incredible, and the beds were super comfortable. I am writing this review for a different reason than the quality of the accommodations, which were excellent for the price. The purpose of my trip was to buy a new motorcycle,...

Hotel el Morro is located about 1.5km outside of town and is a great choice for a quiet stay in Santa Rosalia. Rooms are clean and the staff is nice. It was very windy when we stayed here and if you are looking for a beach view, you will get a room with a gated patio, where you might feel...
