I stayed at this hotel one night in February with extended family. This well maintained hotel is focused around a charming inner courtyard. The Mexican style used throughout was greatly appreciated and enjoyed. The service was also very good. Problems with a light bulb and heater were fixed IMMEDIATELY and in a very friendly courteous manner. I would certainly stay... More

It's actually a very nice, clean place, with very helpful and English speaking staff. Beautiful courtyard, as well as cable TV and Wi Fi. Breakfast and Supper come with the price of the room. The problem is the food is very hit, or miss. Mostly it isn't very good at all! That being said, it is still worth it, as... More

This motel The motel was cute, the rooms were clean, and it was a true Mexican style motel. The courtyard was adorable, and our tour group took advantage of sitting our there and having a good time. The food was not good. We did have good cauliflower soup, then fried fish that was not good. The guy in our group... More

Hotel Margarita was a last minute choice. Getting off the train we were confronted with many men who supposedly worked for them (only one actually did), so we made the five minute walk there ourselves. The place was cute and very Mexican, the rooms clean and comfortable. My gripes were that staff were not very helpful, there was many miscommunications... More

Not a good experience. Paid for dinner & breakfast turned out to be non-existent, allegedly the restaurant was being rennovated. You could see that there were no signs of. Cold and difficult to get the heating organised. Local hotel pickup & tour were a rip off. In any case avoid Creel, the Copper Canyon is so much more immediately accessible... More

For my last 3 trips to Creel, I've stayed at this hotel and was comfortable....tho' the food was very meager. Last summer I arranged for a month's stay and paid in advance. Toward the end of the first week, I fell ill and wound up in the local Tarahumara hospital. They were unable to diagnose my problem (slight heart attack,... More

We enjoyed our stay in this very busy hotel just off the main street. Each room has its own gas space heater which made our February visit that much more enjoyable. The hotel has a policy of not providing a TV remote unless you go to the front desk and ask for it but that was a minor complaint. It... More

Creel was my first stop during my journey on El Chepe from Chihuahua to El Fuerte. I stayed for a couple of nights and it was perfect. The room was a great size, spotlessly clean and warmed up quickly as the evening became chilly. Comfortable bed resulting in a great nights sleep with a warm shower and hot breakfast on... More

Excellent spot. Stayed at the other Margarita's in Creel 10 years ago, and enjoyed it. Stayed here this time with a few friends in a few rooms. Experienced and reported: clean, small, rooms around a colorful courtyard. Gas heaters in every room, bathrooms clean, hot water (usually). You're served a "comida corrida" style breakfast- and dinner-of-the-day included. Beer and sodas... More

Nice place with fairly reasonable prices, stayed three nights and enjoyed the breakfast and dinner meals. Close to the plaza area and easy to walk around town from the hotel. Pleasant staff and nice and clean. Would stay again.
