Images: Hotel California | Todos Santos | Baja California, Mexico

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year, you can find it here

In Todos Santos, a small town in Baja California Sur, Mexico, there is a hotel called Hotel California. But is it the Hotel California that inspired the Eagles to write their famous song? Some say it is, some say it isn’t. The Eagles have stayed at the Hotel California in Todos Santos, but the members of the group have never said outright if this property is the place that inspired their song.

Regardless of whether this is the Hotel California, I do know that it is an incredibly colorful boutique hotel with a restaurant, bar and customized tequila label. Here are some of my favorite shots of the property:

    Love the photos, such vivid colours. I always wondered if the song was referring to a real place, or not. I’ve seen a place called Hotel California. It was in a really small town in Saskatchewan… I was pretty sure it wasn’t one the Eagles ever stayed at.

      The colors there were so amazing. I didn’t really care if it was *the* Hotel California or not. I just found it incredibly visually appealing.
