We went back again on our way back up the Baja. The last time I said it was a great place to stop in the middle of the Baja. The restaurant was horrible this time. The only worker was working between the restaurant and the bar which are across the lobby from each other. It took 20 minutes just to...

Great place located right off main Hwy into Guerrero Negro. Maybe 3 mi from center of town, but only a cheap taxi ride away! Spacious, clean room, great breakfasts! Wonderful service at a great price!!

It's good for season where grey whales will come to the ocean. Worth to come there due to the season then better not missing it. Yes it's great price, not expensive but really slow internet when lots of people use it up. Other than that all were super friendly and helpful!

The hotel has definitely seen better days and the comments about the linens and rooms are true but for $35 US a night my room was clean and the sheets and towels were too. Food was inexpensive and very good and Manuel made me the BEST margarita I have ever had anywhere! I own a place in San Jose del...

The rooms were clean. The bar was fun...Manuel makes great margaritas. The food was good. We were lucky enough to be there when they had fresh lobster. Unfortunately, there was a guest in the bar that could be heard throughout the entire place. It's too bad his companions wouldn't let him know to use his inside voice. Definitely would stay...

not a particular nice area but a convenient stop over on a long road trip (motorcycles) horrible roads with very little services, but the staff are very accommodating and the restaurant tries, but are always understaffed and your food can come in no particular order,,lol but the food is ok.

The Halfway Inn is a very quiet and safe hotel to stay at while visiting Guerro Negro in Baja California. Check in was easy, staff was friendly and very accommodating. Alberto, the day manager was very helpful and speaks perfect english. The rooms are decent size with comfortable beds and kept very clean. The location was perfect for us since...

Clean and pleasant. The weather was quite cool so we were glad the room had a heater. We were whale watching so this was a convenient hotel to stay in for a couple of nights. It was quiet and right next to an army base. One night we sat at the hotel bar and the bartender who had been there...

If you are spending time in Guerrero Negro, it is cheaper and more convenient to stay somewhere else. If you are passing by, grab a room here. Located north of the state line, it is ten or fifteen minutes into town. Nice hotel with restaurant, but you definitely pay for it. Save yourself the extra driving and cost - go...

The Halfway house has great potential! It was halfway good but could be great IF they replaced the towels, linens and had someone on duty more. Also, upgrade their WiFi! During my stay, there was no one at the counter to help with the WiFi or give me password and account info. I checked in around 6pm and there should...
