Ever since Wyoming, where Bobby saw cowboys herding cattle, she has been pestering me to go horse back riding. Not to say I don't like riding, but everytime we go, I end up on the horse who's name roughly translates as "Widow maker." Except for the time I got a horse named Cowboy, who was trained by a sadistic barrel racer. Besides, I got my fill at the Autry Museum riding through a herd of stampeding cattle. Cory and Ryane were eager ...
First, I would like to say Happy Birthday to Mandy. Make it a great one.
So today we begin......Two large suitcases, one rolling duffel and three backpacks hit the driveway at 7:00am. Thanks to Karen for a ride to the airport. We had an 8:50 flight from Nashville to San Antonio and then on to San Diego. All went well and we arrived on time, hopped in a cab and were checked into the Pacific Inn and Suites by 1:00 pm. ...
... We stopped along the way at fast food places and stayed on our cautious diet of salad and water. The desert is no place to experiment with local foods.
We arrived at Tannis' new home, Sandy's house, at about 8:30 and were greeted warmly by Sandy and Dana. It felt so good to both get out of the car and see familiar faces. We unloaded Tannis' things and shared a glass of wine and chatted like old friends do. ...
... only to save on meal
Friends, school chums, and work colleagues all went through another round of tears and hugs.
Repeatis farewellis- the highly unusual act of conducting duplicate & highly emotional farewell tours within an unreasonably short period of time (the less charitable might mention the second round of free meals).
For those unfamiliar with the policing community, apparently you are not officially retired until ...
... it,these Yanks do have quiet a bit of Australia over here like Gum trees and other native trees. We had lunch and headed over to the main show, it was the Shamu show the Killer whale. It was a very good show, they amaze me those mammals. They are bloody huge and for them to jump out of the water some much it is amazing. Callum and Kealey wanted to sit in the splash zone, as you can imagine these thing splash a lot but after the show they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Corona Plaza Rosarito
When you just want to have fun...
I read all the reviews before making my reservations. We were in Mexico to go to the clubs and celebrate, so the quality of the room was not important, since we only slept while we were there. The rooms were pretty clean, but very shabby, broken table, etc. The security was very good, I felt safe in the hotel. It is a $5.00 cab ride to the strip, I was told it was only 1 block, but it was about 10 (short) blocks. It was a good price, but too far from bars, and they do not allow any alcohol in the hotel (unless you buy it at their bar), and absolutely NO visitors in the hotel. It was very close to the beach and the Pelicanos next door was very nice (but they do not serve Champagne!). Not bad, but next time I will book closer to the strip.
Just about everything went Wrong. First off its like 6 longs blocks from strip of clubs. Next it was expensive and the package deal was not worth it at all. The places you have no cover don't charge a cover and aren't even crackin. We got there, pool was ice cold, spa was broken, didn't work till the last day we were there. The hotel lost all water pressure while my one of my boys was in the shower. The water didn't come on till that night and then only the hot side worked, all the toilets over flowed. Second floor flooded. One side of the elevator didn't work. We paid about 200 each and the rooms were hella small, no balconies no good views. Beach wasn't crackin next to the hotel.
Chill for College Crew
This hotel was awesome for spring break. Me and my friends stayed there for 2 nights with a spring break package. the pool was a little dirty.
but besides that it was about 5 blocks from the clubs, and a half a block from the beach. the security was really tight inside so if you didnt have a wristband they wouldnt let you in. Definitly meant for a college crowd. Lots of noise and partyin.
i thought it was absalutely horrible. I slepped on the ground the night we stayed there. Why? The sheets were so dirty,tons of stains, and had a stench. We asked them to change the sheets and they didnt. we actually called the front desk and told them and they didnt care!!!!6 times by the way
We stayed late July 2003. Arrived on a Monday afternoon for 2 nights.
I stayed at the Corona Plaza in June 2003. I was NOT impressed. We paid 80 dollars a night and it wasn't even a finished hotel. The parking was terrible. The ramp was strait down! Nobody was there, and I mean NOBODY. Our car was the only one there. You had to walk down a scary alley to get to the beach and it was very dirty. The hotel elevators didn't work half the time, which doesn't seem like too big of a deal except the stairs going up were cement with no railings. Try getting your luggage up that! We ordered margaritas and I swear there was no alcohol in it. And it is about a half mile from the shops and restaurants. DO NOT STAY HERE. STAY AT THE ROSARITO BEACH HOTEL OR THE LOS PELICONOS. OR RESEARCH VERY WELL. It is worth paying a little more for a better hotel.
The lobby and pool of this hotel is beautiful and deceiving. Their so-called underground parking was always full, so we had to park in the dirt lot right in front. It's a good thing we were only there for one night, because it accomodated us for only that amount of time. It's a good thing I thought ahead because there was no shampoo, conditoner, or soap. We called to see if we could get an iron and they didnt have any.
Don't waste your money at the Corona
We stayed at this hotel August of 2002. When my husband and I arrived, we were very disapointed at the location of the hotel. It was far from town, and not at all close to the beach. Our room faced the ugly parking lot and it had no air conditioning. The bell boy told us to open the window if we wanted air. Also, we had absolutely no hot water. We checked out at 7:00am the next morning and will never return. The pool was pretty pathetic too.
I stayed at the Corona Plaza Hotel in the summer of 2002. i was not impressed at all. Firstly the hotel was not even finished. The staff were not at all helpful, we arrived an hour before check-in but they made us wait even though the hotel was obviously pretty empty. It was not nice inside or out. The room was tiny- barely big enough for the 2 double beds, with absolutely no more than the bare minimum. The pool looked murky and was tiny. The drinks were bad and overpriced and the waiter very rude. And the underground parking structure was scary (very steep ramp). Is is a bit of a walk to the main clubs of Rosarito and the sidewalk is really messed up- huge holes and foot high drops (not so good in high heels!). I paid $120 a night for what I thought was going to be a nice resort hotel but most $50 a night motels i've stayed in in the States have been better than this. Don't waste your money. On the plus side there was a really nice little hotel with a great bar and restaurant next to it by the beach called Los Pelicanos. I will stay there next time I go to Rosarito.
The Best in Rosarito Beach!
Very nice accomodations, good food at the restaurant, and all the staff spoke English. The staff were all very congenial. Highly recommended for the price!
