Tijuana - Hotel Recommendations

I'm going to spend an evening in Tijuana. I plant to walk across from San Diego. I'm thinking that I might be out late, and there's a good chance I will have had a few drinks. I'm thinking that it might be better to crash in TJ than to make the trek back to San Diego, drunk. Any suggestions on where to stay in Tijuana that would be safe but cheap to crash for the night? I'll probably be up and out of the hotel at 6 a.m.

Alone? I'm not sure it's advisable to be walking around alone in late at night and drunk when you are not familiar with the area. But that's just me. I don't know if you'll get many responses here but my suggestion is to go on Expedia and narrow your search to hotels in the entertainment district.

Planning on getting drunk in TJ . . . NOT a good plan.

I'm not a particularly cautious traveler, but getting drunk and crashing at a cheap hotel in Tijuana is NOT the best idea I've ever heard!!

Getting drunk & wandering the streets is less than bright in any city but especially in TJ.

Bars stay open until 3:00am, so you won't be getting much sleep if you plan on leaving at 6:00.

If you're not rowdy, you can stay at Hotel La Villa de Zaragoza. It's on Madero (one block east of Revolucion) between 7th and 8th. It's polite and clean, with an open motel-like style, small but good restaurant and bar; the bilingual front desk is open around the clock.

If you are rowdy, then take whatever hotel that's closest to your watering holes. Being drunk and rowdy on the street is just as much a crime in Tijuana as it is in any other city and you don't want to be dealing with the police.

The red-light district, "La Coahuila" has its own hotels and bars. The new bar scene, more genteel and urban if not urbane, is on Sixth Street ("La Sexta"), spanning a couple of blocks east and west from Revolucion. There you can find bars that specialize in Oaxacan mescals and local craft beers along with a variety of live music.
