Regarding Cecelia Hubbard's letter defending Rosarito Beach Hotel (Letters, June 9): We went for a long weekend but lasted only one night. The room was dirty, the food was greasy and the service stank. Also, there was a strange odor in the lobby. When we went to dinner, we discovered that the odor came from the kitchen. We travel often and we travel well. We know what's good, and Rosarito Beach Hotel isn't. SUSAN REVIT Playa del Rey

The music thumps, the lights flash, the shot glasses wait for willing lips. But the bouncers are reduced to kicking at the curb, hoping somebody, anybody, will round the corner. Friday nights are slow lately in Rosarito Beach's party zone, and everyone knows the drug war is to blame. Hundreds of corpses discovered in and near Tijuana. Some of them headless, others dissolved in barrels of lye. People hear that, and they stay away. At least, most people do.

Regarding Curt Bormann's letter of May 19 on his stay at the Rosarito Beach Hotel ("Mexico Memo"): We stayed at the Rosarito Beach Hotel with our son and his wife for three days. We found everything to be in good order and well kept. The staff was more than gracious. After our stay we recommended it to friends who experienced the same good treatment that we received.

I greatly enjoyed Hillary Hauser's article on "Baja's Gold Coast" (April 14), but I was disappointed that she let the Rosarito Beach Hotel off the hook so easily. She said: "My idea of a beach vacation involves swimming in a scenic, uncrowded ocean, or at least going for quiet walks. Neither the beach by the Rosarito Beach Hotel, nor the hotel itself, inspired this or any other such felicity." Last summer, my family and I stopped at the Rosarito Beach Hotel expecting a pleasant weekend getaway.

After reading Bob Sipchen's glowing report ("Life Is a Fiesta!" March 19, 1995), we decided to try the Festival Plaza resort at Rosarito, Mexico. Our family checked into two bungalows on Dec. 26, 1995. No heat. Peeling paint. Lights not working. Uncomfortable chairs. View of a utility yard next door. During the night the kids' sofa bed collapsed. In the morning our car was covered with peeling paint from the garage ceiling. We moved to the Rosarito Beach Hotel and had a pleasant stay.

In writing the other day of our stop for lunch at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, in Baja California, I remarked that the hotel had been built in the late 1920s as a gambling casino, "but gambling was never permitted, and its large casino rooms stand empty, polished and inviting, as if expecting crowds of rich American gamblers any day." Hugh M. McConahey of Laguna Hills recalls a visit to the Rosarito Beach Hotel "sometime in the late '50s. . . ." "Everything was polished and spotless.

A steady rain in Rosarito Beach dampened local business leaders' hopes and prevented many voters from reaching the polls Sunday to decide whether to turn the coastal enclave into Baja California's fifth city.

Last week in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, we bought a case of Mexican beer at one of those warehouse distribution stations that charges so much less than liquor stores. Almost immediately we were stopped by a traffic cop because a girl in the back seat had opened one of the bottles. She was a visitor from Spain and was following an old Spanish custom. Well, the cop wanted us to pay him $150. All we had was change from a $50 traveler's check with which we had bought the beer. So he impounded our car and said we would get it back when we came up with the $150.

Mayor Hugo Torres has always pitched his seaside city as a cut-rate paradise. But even this relentless hometown booster is stumped these days: How do you sell the Mexican good life in the midst of a drug war? The city's bustling main drag, Benito Juarez Boulevard, has been the scene of two shootings since September, including a drive-by slaying of a 15-year-old boy and three others in a pet store filled with frenzied puppies and canaries. Gunmen shot down one police officer guarding a park.

For most of my adult life, one of the nomadic notions that hovered near the top of my to-do list--somewhere below a monthlong golfing orgy in Scotland and a bit above a banzai run to the Gilroy Garlic Festival--was a weekend holed up in the Rosarito Beach Hotel.
