Technically, this could be a good rate since your entire hotel stay could be under $200 but do you really want to go to Tijuana?

We know the O.C. kids made it look cool when they went down there because Ryan saved Marissa from a nasty drug overdose and Luke got his freak on with her best friend, but TJ can be scary.

At the Camino Real Tijuana rooms are going for as low as $100 that weekend but for the bargain you have to put up with a myriad of service problems:

The "concierge" turned out to be a bellhop, the wireless Internet access was only reliably accessible in the public areas of the hotel and cost $100 pesos per day, and their 24-hour room service was limited to four selections between midnight and 6 AM.

All-English-language 70s music playing throughout the lobby and the restaurant, 99% of which were sad and depressing songs like "Rainy Days and Mondays."

There was also "occasional disturbing odors in public areas" of the hotel which could pretty much sum up Tijuana altogether.
