Norman Diego's The Mexican Inn
Travel Blogs from Cabo San Lucas
19/12 - 26/12 Flew from San Diego to Cabo. What a yuppie place! Very nice, but soooooooo American. Everyone spoke English & everywhere accepted USD (we'd already exchanged all of ours to pesos so not much help there). The only place that didn't seem to speak any English was where we were staying - we'd made a booking over the Internet the day …
... mushrooms, and potato skins. Janene had tortilla soup which was as good looking to eat as it was tasty.
Back to our room the girls are bathed in their outdoor spa and into bed. We need to clear the fridge of any leftover alcohol so the kids teach us drinking games. 1 2 3 4 you need to be coordinated to play this one. Then we do fingers on the cup, not sure if it has a name but it is pretty funny. Rock ...
... that guy was going to be hauled into someone office to be given a pink slip for behavior unbecoming of management. But then again this is the Obama administration which is nothing but a throw back to the Bush administration. So I take that back this fine fellow and his sexual prowess will be just fine.
After listening to the Tosh.o wannabe for ten minutes I moved on and found myself in the heat of the day at the Cabo marina. The marina ...
... found that I was also keeping up a little better when Cameron or Mando spoke with the locals. That night, we hit the beach for the turtle release. As far as I can tell, some sort of official digs up the eggs, discards the shells and places the baby turtles onto a bin. The tourists swarm the scene, so I stayed back and waited until the official began handing out the tortugas. There were so many turtles, I was able to get 4 of them to hold, inspect and ultimately release. ...
... like to do in our lives...with our kids. In that realm there is a place for buying a rock tumbler and worrying about the rough edges on my found beach glass. However, I know that all that won't matter much to me when I get home anymore. Frenzied thinking is just around the corner.
We have a credit with the hotel that expires at the end of the year. Someone will have to go back soon....

Historical Traveler Reviews Norman Diego's The Mexican Inn Cabo San Lucas
The Chile Pepper Inn was purchased and is now named the Mexican Inn. It is a wonderful little B&B. In fact, it was featured in the San Francisco newspaper and got rave reviews. I am sorry to hear that people got scammed and are now bashing the hotel. If you search for "Mexican Inn" on the internet you will find great reviews. I stayed here in October 2004 with my husband and had a wonderful experience. The new manager and his wife speak very little English, but if you can speak basic Spanish, you will be able to communicate with them. We found them very nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. Each room has a TV and DVD/CD player. The owners will loan you CD's and DVDs if you ask. In the morning they serve fresh juice, muffins, fruit, coffee and tea in the little courtyard. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate. My husband and I enjoyed breakfast each morning in the courtyard with several other guests who had nothing but great things to stay about their stay at the Chile Pepper Inn. The hotel is within walking distance to the bars and good restaurants. At the end of our trip we stayed at the Melia, a beach front resort. We had to change rooms at the Melia because there were cockroaches in our room. We also got sick after eating breakfast in the Melia. We were kicking ourselves for leaving the Mexican Inn.
The ambience is superb!
We just got back from our first trip to Mexico, and hopefully it will not be our last! The Mexican Inn staff was amazing, it was almost like we were staying with family. The courtyard area was so warm and inviting, and our room was spectacular. We were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go, and it didn't feel like we were in a manufactured environment like at so many other hotels.
Perfect for fishing!
We went to Cabo for a fishing trip, but what we actually got was so much more! The manager packed us lunches the night before so that we could take them with us on the boat. When we returned each day, he helped us clean the fish and before we left he helped us pack it for the trip home. Each day after our outing we came back to relax in the courtyard and have a beer by the fountain, it was beautiful! I can't express enough how wonderful our trip was, or how accomodating the the Mexican Inn was. I would not want to stay anywhere else in Cabo than the Mexican Inn.
Stay at the Mexican Inn!!
I traveled to Cabo on my own this trip and as a female traveler, I felt completely safe! Miguel and Anna greeted me and were eager to please. Miguel even brought fresh fruit and new videos to my room on occassion! I was 3 or 4 blocks from the Gigglin Marlin and maybe 6 blocks to Squid Roe. EASY EASY EASY to walk through all of downtown. There was a pharmacy near by and plenty of little restaurants also. The room was cleaned everyday with new linens and towels, the A/C worked great - all the time! - and it was always peaceful and quiet. A taxi from Mango Deck/The Office was only $5. This place ROCKS if you are headed to Cabo on a budget. I am headed back again in December for sure!
Lucky us! We had so much fun! We had never been to Cabo San Lucas before - Acapulco was our first choice, but bad weather changed our plans...so we ended up in Cabo at the Mexican Inn, and we are so glad we did. Located right downtown, we saved tons on cab fare since we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. The rates were great - we have paid 2 or 3 times as much elsewhere for rooms not half as nice. Beautiful touches - tile, hand-painted sinks, gorgeous courtyard. It felt more like a gracious home than a hotel, and was family-friendly. Our whole family agrees that we made the right decision, and we would highly recommend the Mexican Inn to anyone heading for Cabo.
A Great Gay Getaway
My partner and I just got back from Cabo San Lucas, where we stayed at the Mexican Inn and could not have had a better anniversary trip! The staff at Norman Diego's was amazing, their attention to every little detail superb! The fountain took my breath away, and the feel of real Mexico was unlike anything I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough!
The ambience was as promised
We really enjoyed our stay at the Mexican Inn! Everything was nice and the ambience was as promised. Miguel and Ana anways had the right answers to whatever our questions were, what is a good restaurant, where can we rent a boat and things like that. They even made special arrangements for the refirgeration of the medicine my husband needs to take each day. The inn was very special for us in particular because we had stayed there about 5 years before on our honeymoon. We definitely plan to return next year.
The Mexican Inn was Fantastic!
We have never been to Cabo San Lucas before and didn't know what to expect. The Inn is on a dirt road but only 3 blocks from the main drag and we walked everyday. The couple that manages the Inn was very nice and when I needed a taxi to the airport they made sure one was there at 6am! The courtyard was super for just sitting around when we returned from dinner or shopping. The rooms were so neat. I definitely plan to return.
Great place to hangout!
I came to Cabo to surf and when I got there the place I thought was reserved for me was not availible and I needed a hotel quickly! We got on the net and found The Mexican Inn, went over and they were great. Miguel (the Manager) and his wife were so fantastic, gave us a great room and the price was the best since I really thought I would have to pay thru the nose being last minute and all. Anyways I really liked this Hotel and I recommend it to anyone that plans a little better than I did!
True Mexican Flavor and Style
We just returned from 5 days at The Mexican Inn and it was wonderful! The rooms are each named after Mexican woman of history (we stayed in Frieda) and the old Mexico feel was fantastic. The Inn is 3 blocks from the water on a dirt road and they served a great breakfast each morning in the Cortyard next to the foutain (over 6 feet tall!) The rooms were great, the service was always with a smile and since we had our 11/2 year old son with us we really appreciated all the extras, the crib, the baby seat in the Palapa area, stuff that you don't always think about about miss when away from home. We even bought one of thier bathrobes.The staff was so wonderful to us, we can't wait to go back.
