Concierge.com's insider take:
Inspired design and attention to detail needn't always mean a hefty price tag. Bougainvillea drapes over iron railings, brick walls support vines shading the small pool, and tiled fountains splash at this endearing budget hotel on a side street in San Lucas. Bright yellow shutters, woven straw headboards on wrought iron beds, and large bathrooms with tiled counters add a Mexican flair to the 12 large rooms. Guests gather with owner Sandra Scandibar around the courtyard table to exchange tips on taco stands and beaches. More solitary types stick to the rooftop terrace beside flowers blooming amid boulders. Film and band crews staying several weeks claim dibs on ground-floor rooms with kitchenettes while famed Cabo regulars hide out in the upstairs suite.
