Great Tray Abraham is a great resource

Stayed three weeks with my husband..... it was great. Our vehicle was ALWAYS safe and there was 24 hour staff.... they even did our laundry for a couple of bucks ...... we stay whenever we go to tj..... which is pretty often .... only down side (if there is one) is that the rooms are so large that they were kind of cold but they gave us a heater no problem
The hotel is decent but the carpet in the room was dirty.

When I arrived on August 18th the room was clean and orderly. There were only two problems with the "third-floor walk-up" room. The hair dryer didn't function and when I got out of the shower and stepped on the carpet, the bottom of my feet became dark and tacky. Other than that, the room was not too bad. The building must have been built during the 1950's and the bathroom fixtures reflect this. There was a small cigarette burn in the bed cover but the linen was clean. I paid $33 per day for two nights and it was sufficiently comfortable for the price paid.
The place wasn't horrible but it wasn't the best. If I return to Tijuana and am planning to attend the bullfights at the Plaza De Toros Monumental, I may stay here. If I find myself going to Revolution Avenue, I may stay at a Hotel that is closer to the Tourist District.

When we arrived there was no rooms available and we already made reservations. Then finally they put us on the third floor after someone just checked out. There was no air conditioning, the room smelled, the floor was gross, and the bathroom had hairs all over. We slept for a couple hours after Lysoling everything then left. Luckily Hotels. Com refunded our money.
We enjoyed it, but there are a few things you should know...

I enjoyed my stay at the Villas Santiago Hotel. There are a few things you should know before you decide if it is the right place for you, there. Despite the name, it’s not a villa, some argue it’s not a hotel, but it is a very economical, reasonably clean place to stay. Our room was large, comfortable, fairly quiet, and reasonably clean. It’s cheap. The same room would cost about three times as much anywhere in the US.
It’s what people used to call a “hot pillow joint.” The price they advertise on the sign outside the hotel is the rate for four hours; a whole night costs over twice this – and it’s still a good price. Their pricing structure speaks to their expected market.
They have double rooms with two double beds that would be great for families, and I saw a few families staying there, but I would be very hesitant about bringing kids here. Every room has what they call tantric chairs, built for sex. When we first turned the TV on, it was tuned to a sex channel. We had to switch past three of these before we got to anything at all child-appropriate. (One of the sex channels has a scrolling message welcoming you to the hotel.) The room-service menu includes soft-drinks, beer, sandwiches, and other things that you might expect, it also includes tooth-brushes, razors, deodorant, and other things you might have forgotten. You can also get condoms, lube, vibrators, and other things that I’ve never seen on a room-service menu. All of this might be difficult to explain to the little ones.
Our room was relatively quiet. I didn’t hear anything at all from the other rooms. The hallways are tiled, and some noise from the hallways came into our rooms, but that’s not unusual.
Our room was on the fourth floor, the top floor, so we didn’t have any upstairs neighbors. There is no elevator. If you need a room on a lower floor, be sure to request it. I don’t think there are any rooms accessible without climbing at least a few stairs.
The Soler neighborhood is just a few blocks west of the hotel (uphill). There is a (US chain) hamburger joint, a few (US chain) pizza joints, a few Chinese restaurants, and several street vendors selling food. There are also a few big grocery stores, pharmacies, and pawn shops. This is also where you can pick up a shared taxi (van) to downtown or to the beach for about 13 pesos each. The regular taxi-libre from downtown to the hotel was 100 pesos. The shared taxis to the beach will pick you up on De La Alegria near Independencia (near the west-bound highway off-ramp). To take a shared taxi to town, you’ll have to cross the highway and pick up the taxi on the east-bound highway on-ramp.
It’s probably quieter than most of the hotels in el centro, but I don’t know. I liked that it was between el centro and the beach. It gave us more options.

Driving up to the motel you greeted at a bullet-proof toll booth. After haggling over my reservation for my "Deluxe" room we were allowed to pass through the gate. Room 410 is a four story climb up the stairs (no elevator), while the view is nice on the way up (only reason they didn't get a terrible rating), my "Deluxe Room" faced the neighbors backyard. The room did not look like any of the pictures. It was drab and bleak. The shower looked like it had not been cleaned as numerous hairs clang to the floor. I was planning to stay the night but decided to escape and head back to San Diego.
