San Felipe stopover


Looking for a clean inexpensive hotel on the south end of San Felipe to Puertecitos for 1 night. Emailed Alfonsinas and they are wanting $100usd for 2 double bed room. Hoping to spend a little less.

Any insight would be appreciated!

El Capitan in San Felipe is popular here. Nothing between SF and Gonzaga as far as motels go.

Make sure to get a room with GOOD AC.
Very few places in Baja have QUIET AC.

I would consider paying the $100 at Alfonsinas.
Clean and right on the water.
Excellent fish and shrimp taco, too!

Sounds like it fits my budget! Any Idea if they allow dogs?

I don't know about pets at the El Capitan. But you could ask.

Thanks for the suggestions. Have an email out to El Capitan. Will give Alfonsinas a try when my wife travels down with me.

Two years ago El Capitan was dog friendly, but it would be good to hear it straight from them.

Kiki's is my #1 choice....on the water, a few blocks from downtown...and his newer units across the street are very nice, too.

Alfonsina's is way south of San Felipe and Puertocitos. There is no place I am aware of in between. There are plenty of places to stay in SF. My favorite is El Cortez.
