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.

... cheese, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, black beans, roasted corn and BBQ sauce. I also ordered fries with bacon ketchup. To quench my thirst I had a "Matt's Burnt" which was a Burnt Saison, if you've ever had laphroaig whiskey it's a beer that tastes very similar but is even more smokey flavored. In the end it was all very delicious. And now I'm off to Flagstaff to see the Grand Canyon for the first time. Spent in San Diego: $100 Total Spent On Trip: ...
... so this was interesting, as none of us speak German. We had fun decorating and eating the extra parts.
It turned out pretty cool. Definitely a worthwhile Hanukah activity.
We got guitar picks from Lagunitas Brewing for Ryane. Luckily she brought her guitar. She and I attempted to sing Angel from Montgomery and sounded just like John Prine and Bonnie Raitt, in our heads. We will have to practice some more together ...
... do we get to see but dolphins too yay :) 3 of them so close to the beach & looking so happy playing!! The next day we teamed up again & drove to Balboa Park, there were a number of free gardens to see including a huge rose garden, loads of different colours & styles, although alas no black ones for my favourite :( we went to see the botanical gardens, a cactus garden, an art museum, a huge oak ( at least I think it was), a ...
... have lived in the Mission Bay area since Pharmacy Grad School at UCSD. It was a short two mile drive and we found easy parking on the street in front of their house….unusual for Mission Beach. The evening was spent catching up, eating takeout Thai and drinking a bottle of vintage wine from Bob’s cellar.
Back to Campland for the night as we are off to Escondido in the morning, a short one hour trip north to visit the Safari Park and other friends in the ...
... brightly today and the harbour looked stunning. It had also brought out so many people. Loads of people on their push bikes, joggers and also people just enjoying a Sunday stroll.
Whilst we were heading off to find a Starbucks (yes, they all drink it over here. Sophie and Pat are addicted!) we came across this little fair going on. It had people selling jewelery, tarot readers, a children's entertainer and a guy who had ...
