The building has undergone major transformations throughout its history but it has been proven to have existed since approximately the first half of the seventeenth century. The current layout of the house wa constructed in the eighteenth century, when it was finished with architectural elements present today.
The house was originally used by Indies merchant traders and was later used as a charity hospital, then again from nineteenth century it was occupied by fishermen and shipwrights until its current use as a small Hotel.
The property originally belonged to Don Juan Antonio de la Peña, Priest Commissioner of the Holy Office of the Inquisition. For personal reasons and kinship, it later belonged to Don Manuel de Rosales Velasco, Hijodalgo, Knight of the Order of Santiago and Perpetual Regidor (Ruler) of the City of El Puerto de Santa María. It is from this knight and his son Don Miguel, also Ruler, that the hotel takes its name.
