Our check in and check out was fast. My husband and I found this hotel on trip advisor as a last minute resort. We didn't get to jump in there pool. Pretty much just showered and slept there. The mattress was really stiff. Restroom looked clean when we arrived but there was hair in the shower wall from the previous... More

Prepay your hotel expense through the third party booking service or prepare to pay a higher rate for your currency exchange; we lost two pesos per dollar. In fact, expect to be nickle and dimed for a 70-s, run down, Hawaii five-o decor property. Hole ridden blankets, twenty dollar deposit for pool towels, dark and musty rooms, no toiletries provided,... More

So the window A/C unit was functional but loud enough that we could not hear the TV but NOT loud enough to drown the all night party out by the pool. The shower leaked into rest of the room and the whole stay the carpet by the entrance to the room squished under our feet. It was disgusting. And the... More

In general this hotel needs maintenance and doesn't comply with it's rating. Water tap in shower and sink is leaking. Carpet on floors call for wearing your shoes at all times. The pool however is nice and the atmosphere in this area is relaxing and OK. The wifi was very slow.

very nice stay. It is a little tired in places, but they are remodeling now. The room was very large with a kitchen. We only stay overnight to shower and sleep and continue our drive North.The parking lot across the street is free to the hotel guest and has a 24 hour guard. Rare in Mexico.

Terrible experience, reserved two rooms and when arrived I was told "sorry we had more guests than expected and we gave the other room to someone else, but the one I have is a double, that way all 4 can still sleep here" The place is old and dirty!!!

My family and me stayed in this hotel, and we were expecting the same quality shown in photos, but reality is far from the photos. The hotel is very old, clean, but old carpets, old fashioned, old furniture. Expected more for the price. In weekends they rent the pool area, so it was very crowded and we could not get... More

We stayed in Room 303. This was an older hotel and the rooms make you feel like you just stepped back into the 1980's. It has a nice pool and two large jacuzzis. There is a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. The bar service by the pool is average. They have waitresses that take orders but they took a... More
