Hotel Hacienda Mulege safe parking?


We drive to Todos every year and always do Jardines first night and stay the next night in San Ignacio before the last day drive from there to Todos.

The last day drive is doable but a little long and I was thinking about staying in Mulege. I will be driving one ton pickup and towing a small trailer. Can I find easy, safe parking at La Hacienda?

there is parking in the back ...
I don't know if its any safer...no one back there

mulege is a pretty safe town...

if you are really worried...
give 500 pesos to the night time police officer on duty
and park it over by the office...

or find someone else and give them 400 pesos
to sit in a chair where you park it

i'd just park it on the street in front of that hotel and go inside
it'll be fine

They have a rolling gate & you could ask Cero if it could be closed the night you are there ( I think they do it nightly? ) You can walk to most eateries from there & a small but adequate pool to cool off in & a great courtyard.. Has worked for me many times in the past...

There's Mulege Hotel on the left as you drive in. Drive in through the entrance to the quad, look around, and, if you like it get a room.

The gate is locked at night. When I leave to return to the US I leave at 5:00a and there's a buzzer by the gate. The office is open 24 hours.

No pool and the rate is about 45 dollars. No pets.




What I'm doing at work is so secret, even I don't know what I'm doing!

Hotel Hacienda Mulege closes the rear gate at night. Half the rooms overlook the parking area, ask for one of those.
Hotel Mulege is also good, cheaper than stated above and they except some pets.
Cuesta Real, 2 kg south of town, has parking in front of the rooms.
Serenida also has secure parking.

The choice of hotel really depends on what you want to do in Mulege and your "style". We often stay at La Hacienda as we like just walking around town to eat and shop etc. plus I like the courtyard, great low price, nice beds & AC, good wifi and nice owners but tricky if you are towing a boat or trailer.

We also really like Cuesta Real as it is real quiet, economical and clean but a bit far to town but nice for walking along the river.

Shari makes a good point re: backing out of Hacienda parking lot with a trailer...I have parked loaded pickup at Hacienda many times over the years and never had anything disappear (moto stuff and gear)...and also agree that Mulege is a pretty safe town....unless impaired and trying to negotiate curbs when returning to hotel ....:biggrin:

Mulege motel by arch has a bigger lot that would be better for turn-around rather than backing up w/ trailer.

I always prefer the Hacienda generally speaking.

:light: and they "accept" dogs...they don't "except" them ....

My 80+ pound dog was 'accepted' at The Hacienda, and I agreed to keep her on a leash while in the courtyard. They have a resident cat, which my girl would give a wide berth any way, but we had no other issues.

A nice thing about the location for those traveling with dogs, is the close access to the river if you want to go for a walk. There is a path down through the vacant lot across from the parking area, or an alley a little further to the east.

I visited just before, and just after last Thanksgiving, and there were plenty of rooms available at that time.

Ged, he must have copied me... "except" :)
Mulege has new curbs and sidewalks, just for you! Almost Osha approved, open manhole covers etc, almost ADA approved, utility poles in middle of sidewalks and one in the middle of the road and 30% grade ramps, but all in all, much safer now and a visual improvement. Hacienda parking lot will not be full now, so easy in easy out. But if the bus tours are there, stay at the Hotel Mulege, cuz haceinda will be rockin till the wee hours.
Shari covered the rest.

i forgot to mention that one needs to check to see if there will be an event in the Cancha next to La Hacienda...especially on SAturdays as there can be insanely loud music till 3 in the morning...at least! Buyer beware! I check at the store on the corner as sometimes the management may not want to tell you.

Actually, I had plenty of light. It was a high curb, poor depth perception thing. It took weeks for the tender spot on the back of my head to go away!

And no alcohol was involved!

well...they don't want or need you surf boards in Mulege...

as for getting a room that looks out at your truck ...you don't want that because all you'll do is wake up at 2am and look out

if you cant see the truck you can sleep

I think you'll be fine for one nite...

the trick with backing a trailer is...
don't park where you have to back out


edit...oh yea don't tell people on the internet where those surf boards will be on oct 17th or 18th...someone from out of town might want them
