Nice hotel, staff very welocming

Pros: I enjoyed the great customer Service, and clean environment.
Cons: The pool is not heated but not freezing cold, I think if heated it would be much better
Location: rosarito is about 30min away Ensenada about an hour you can get really good lobster near by in Puerto Nuevo! The hotel is also located in a safe area
I have to say I wasn't expecting much since this is a hotel in Tijuana. I chose this hotel because I didn't want any run down "spring break hotel" in Rosarito or Ensenada. AND I was quite impressed! we had the DELUXE room with King size bed. I caps lock DELUXE because if you don't pay a few extra pesos for the deluxe you get a room that is not remodeled, and from what I hear there's a BIG DIFFERENCE. I didn't know this, but i read a previous review on another website. When I mentioned my concern to the concierge she was able to accommodate me in a Deluxe room, and it was great! I've only seen the older rooms in pictures and they don't look bad but remodeled rooms are always first choice for me. The hotel itself is very clean, and mellow, if your looking for a party hotel this isn't the one. But if you care for GREAT service, clean pool and clean sheets everyday, this is it! Also everything in Baja is just a drive away! We will for sure be back!

Elegant and safe

Pros: Comfort, location and classy
Cons: Beer was $5 at the hotel bar. A little too high for Mexico.
Location: Dominos pizza across the street, Starbucks and mini-mart across the street, lots of restaurants and a nice open air mall 10 minutes walking distance a
First time visitor to Tijuana. Not sure what to expect. This hotel was way better than I expected. If you have been to Las Vegas, this hotel is very similar to The Mirage or MGM Grand. Very nice rooms, hallways, lobby, bar. Staff are amazing and treat you terrific. Pool is cold but my kids still swam. Restaurant and bar are normal priced.

Great hotel - great location - renovated

I was pleasantly surprised when staying at this hotel. We had a deluxe king room and were impressed when we opened the door. The recently renovated rooms were comparable to nicer hotels in California. Definitely worth the price you pay...didn't use the pool but not crazy about people dining in the patios right next to them. It was a HOT weekend in Tijuana - the in room AC worked beautifully...however the rest of the hotel common areas were very warm. Not a big deal. Bed was super comfy (I hate the hard beds that most mexican hotels have) no problem w getting extra towels. Water bottles were free and 24 hour room service. Parking seems a little limited but we didn't have a problem. Refrigerator available upon request however they don't seem to jave enough either as they said that one could be provided at no additional cost IF it was available - lucky for us, one was. Staff was great...no problems report. Will definitely stay here again even though it is one of the more expensive options...but definitely worth it.

Satisfied. I will return.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I have now stayed at the Hotel Lucerna twice. Both times, the service has been quite satisfactory. The staff appeared ready to please and assist. The room was clean, orderly and in good repair. I'm not saying it is perfect, there is definitely room for improvement. But, the hotel makes you feel at home, safe and at ease.
