Desert Inn Catavina
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Catavina
Reviewed 3 May 2011

After hours of car through a beautiful but hot and dusty desert, it was like heaven getting here. Beautiful, fresh, large, clean rooms, and very good restaurant.
Not exactly "budget", for Baja California standards, not very expensive either, and well worth it.
At the time of my stay, renewal works were taking place on the roof and in courtyards.
I would go back again!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are more silent

Since the last time I stayed in '03 the power now seems to stay on all night (generator). For it's location it can't be beat. Yes it's on the pricey side, but look where it is. Rooms are clean and staff is great. This is nicer then the Desert Inn in Guerrero Negro and I would rank it #3 overall for the chain - #1 Loreto & #2 San Ignacio.

Hotel has great grounds and pool, and great location for an evening hike. The rooms are nice, well maintained. Restaurant food is OK, but not special; hovwever, amiance is good.
Hotel is sort of expensive, but relative to central baja hwy 1 resting points, is better than competing hotels. Most hotels in nearby El Rosario and Guerrero Negro are simply truck stops without nice grounds or pool.

I was planning on staying here, but balked when the surly clerk told me the rate was US $90 + 10% tax. I stayed across the street at a very rough, basic hotel for $25 (no tax). There is a very rustic ranch / restaurant a mile off the highway on the eastern side of town that also costs $25. The ranch is solar powered so it has electricity (refrigerator & lights), but after dark things shut down. Except the donkleys and horses wallking around......

On the way back, I passed through Catavina and stayed at the Oasis in El Rosario. It was an incredible value.

Very nice hotel in the middle of the desert, This is the only really nice hotel in Catavina. Room are very big, very clean and hotel is really nice. Is can be a bit expansive for the area: the price was $90 a night but we negiciated $70 a night when we were there. Very quiet too!
