ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA---Thanks to a special promotion, it was easy for Oscar and Carmen Valencia to know the room rate they’d pay at the Rosarito Beach Hotel while they attended a gala holiday ball there.

The nightly rate for an oceanfront room was $27, coinciding with Oscar’s birth year of 1927. It’s part of a two-month-old promotion in which guests have the option of having their room rate be the same as the year of their birth.

So far almost 500 people have taken advantage of the special rate, the oldest born in 1925, the same year the now 500-room legendary hotel was born. The promotion has been so successful it’s been extended through December of 2012, according to marketing director Daniel Torres.

“Not only is it a successful promotion, it’s a great way to say thank you to many of our long-time and frequent guests,” said hotel owner Hugo Torres. “Repeat business has been a key to our longevity and growth since 1925.

For the Valencias, the promotion came just in time for them to get a great room rate while attending the United Society of Baja California’s Black & White Ball at the hotel earlier this month. The rate was so good, they stayed two nights instead of one – a total of $54

Even though they have lived in Rosarito full-time for 15 years, the Valencias were able to use the rate both to get a mini-vacation --- plus a beautiful  short stroll to their oceanfront suite after the ball.

“It was a great deal,” Carmen Valencia said as she ate lunch at a hotel restaurant with other USBC members who planned to attend the ball. “They even got us a first-floor room, so it was more convenient for Oscar. I’m going to tell all my friends about the promotion.”

Before retiring the couple owned a beauty salon in San Diego, Valencia & Associates, for 25 years. Married for more than 50 years, they are active in the Rosarito Flying Samaritans chapter as well as the USBC. They are among an estimated 14,000 expats living in Rosarito.

“We love it here,” Carmen Valencia said.
