Beware Of False Pricing - We just got back driving down the Baja. Along the way we noticed signs advertising $570 pesos per night rate at the Desert Inn Hotel (old name: La Pinta Hotels) We stopped in San Ignacio and the "real" price is over $1000 pesos. When asked about it they said it was a promotional price and no longer applied. This same thing happened at the Desert Inn Hotel in Loreto. I suggested changing the highway signs but that isn't going to happen. Just be aware!! - Chuck Cimino, Todos Santos
