Historical Traveler Reviews Festival Plaza Hotel Rosarito
It was fine
I thought the hotel was fine. It wasn't great or anything fancy, but for the price we paid we weren't expecting it to be. The room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the atmosphere was just what i expected. We met some new people there and even ran into some old friends. I thought it was totally worth it, and i would totally stay there again.
"It's no-luxury, all fun place"
Not easy to get reservations. This place gets packed! kids love it, it's a let your hair down kinda place with lots to eat, drink, shop and party.
What a dump!
This was pretty much the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. For $100. a night, I felt completely ripped off. They advertise things you cannot get like hairdryers and AC, but you would think that the room would have lights! I cannot understand how that horrible IGGYs is allowed to blast their music until 2am so that even the town residents cannot sleep. This hotel gets it the worst. Partying is one thing, but disturbing a whole town is ridiculous. For $29.00 more, stay at the Rosarito Beach Hotel next door. Or if you are willing to drive further to Puerto Nuevo and not party in hellsville, stay at the New Port Beach Hotel or the condos next door to that place. Beautiful places with huge swimming pools, tennis courts, volleyball, and everything else a hotel is supposed to have. The only fun part was blowing off fireworks on Rosarito Beach down the street. Oh, and the valet parking misplaced our rental car key making us wait almost two hours to leave that hellhole.
Turned out the guy who parked the car, pocketed the key so they had to go to his house to retrieve it.
Time to Party!!!!
I've stayed in both a rock n roll room and an ocean front room and both were hella fun! Festival is the place to be and stay when you are in Rosarito! During the day it's like the club to be at and be seen!
I had a good *** time!!!
I just came back from this hotel today and it was the bomb! I stayed in one of their rock n roll rooms and the room looked very clean and nice for a very cheap price. I have stayed at hotel with rooms costing at over $150 and they didn't look as nice as these. The staff was very friendly to me and my friend and we got free drinks! We partied all night and then came back and found another party at the hotel, young college guys were everywhere and luckily for me and my homegirl, they were our neighbors. =) It was also great that we could walk to the beach and the clubs, they were only like 5 mins away so we didn't have to drive anywhere. If you want to party till dawn then this is the place to stay, I'm definetely coming back guys! ;)
Its ok, you get you pay for!!!
I went down to Rosarito to party my ass off, and that Hotel made it easy for me to do so. Yes the room's looked warn down but they were still always clean. Security was ok, but alot better then other hotels down there. When I first checked in, my room was trashed by the previous people that stayed in there, when we complained to the manager, he quickly gave us a new room with free drinks:). People have to rember that the Festival Plaza is directed only toward the young college crowled, this Hotels first main objective is to have a non-stop party atmosphere....and thats what it did. If you want to be pampred while you are taking a crap by sitting on a nice shiny toilet, then you should go to the Corona Plaza Hotel. But I guarntee you that it will be extremly dull there with a family of 5 staying next door to you. I would definately go back again!!!
Rock and Roll rooms are the bomb! Talk about a party place! Everyone that we met was having the time of their life, the bar tenders were awesome, and so was the rest of the staff. Total security on our car made us not sweat. Walking distance from any and everything. I will never stay at another hotel in Rosarito!
Not too great
The wallpaper in my room was peeling. The maids did not do a very good job cleaning the rooms. There were a couple of hotel security guys that were very unfriendly. My stay in Rosarito was nice, but this hotel was mighty ghetto.
i do not even want to rekindle my thoughts regarding my spring break trip from hell @ this hotel. When one thinks 'security guards' they commonly do not associate them with cons and thieves. Our room was broken into, everything taken even used disposable cameras. The room was locked, no signs of forced entry. The only way to get in the room was via key...hence my presumption that the hotel employees played a role in this chaotic adventure. When we approached the front desk to be placed in a different room, they denied our request...denied any type of request for reimbursements etc...please do not stay @ this hotel. If i reach one person, then all is good. They even stole my pants!!!! When I asked to speak to the hotel manager...the person working the front counter said, "no, he's too busy"....ill leave it up to your discretion...thanx
I live in San Diego and go to Rosarito often to relax and have fun. I stayed once at the Festival plaza to try it out. The rooms looked worn and tired, the bathroom didn't work and everything was overpriced. If you want a nice hotel in Rosarito stay at Corona Plaza (011526616124200) for about the same amount of $. If you want a cheaper room that is clean and decent stay at Los Pelicanos, (011526616120445) its right on the beach--its quaint but charming.

... Bobby's adventure. However, Bobby was picky - no malnourished animals, no nose to tail, no sway backs, no tourist traps. She searched the web and found a horse rescue ranch south of Rosita and began an email exchange. (All the Pretty Horses of Baja). Perfect. The three of them went this morning, leaving Sadie and me to fend for ourselves on the beach. I told Bobby not to ride the horse called Morty or in Spanish, Morte.
On the move today after breakfast from our RV park in Anaheim to San Diego.
We spend most of the morning on the road. The children are tired still from our two days at Disney and they sleep most of the time, which is unusual for them in the morning. Thank heavens for sat nav. Rich does a sterling job up front whilst Emma blogs from the back, then becomes master of entertainment once the kidlets awaken.We stop for a yummy lunch in the RV. We are trying to be a bit ...
... their names or hand prints on the pavements. We did get as close as you can these days to the Hollywood sign, a curious and compelling icon.
We say a farewell to Hugh, who in his typically generous manner offers to ship our glass object back to London. It remains to be seen whether it arrives in one piece. Next stop Laguna Beach where a coughing and spluttering Jean needs some sun and rest.
We check out a few hotels and settle for a room ...
I woke up at 4:00 AM to catch my 6:45 AM flight out of San Diego. I had lost some of my enthusiasm for the trip in the weeks leading up to my departure and I wasn't thrilled about getting up so early. My flight to Atlanta was uneventful and I arrived around 2:00PM local time where I then had about a two and a half hour layover before catching my flight to Venice. My flight to Venice was delayed out of Atlanta about 30 minutes due to the unexplained hot temperature in the rear ...
... same plan, and very little people working at the gates. Thankfully our group was all together so we didnt have to wait too long after we got through.
On the way home we stopped at San Diego for 30mins, and again found ourselves in another tourist trap. I swear the US is made up of these things all over the country. Anyways, got back around 10pm and was completely exhausted, but looking back, it was a truly amazing place.
