Checked in 1/6/2015 for 11 nights. We purchased a $53 a night deal. Room is very small so we decided to upgrade immediately. 2 $100 USD bills got us a great rate and a room for 4 with a outdoor kitchen. the rooms are plain and simple. cleaned daily. Very, very nice and polite and RESPECTFUL.....that is what Mexico is... More

Vallarta is quite spread out, therefore choose your stay based on where you want to be and what you want. Emperador is near the beach and has rooms with and without views, with and without kitchenettes. It is old with single pane windows and you will hear all noise. You will have walking access to all the areas and restaurants... More

We had a wonderful house booked for a week in Vallarta and needed a place for two extra nights. Having never stayed in many hotels in Vallarta, we chose the Emperador. The rooms are so sub par...they are really dirty...especially the bathrooms...and they just don't have many amenities for travellors...no ice, outdoors kitchens etc...the doors did not have security locks...

This location is a great place. However, the amenities and service were sub standard. If you like a nice place, don't book here. Noise and security was a serious concern. There are no deadbolt locks yet the halls are open and accessible to visitors or others roaming the halls. I'm glad I didn't have my kids with me as I... More

A return visit for 24 nights in December did not dissapoint. A email, resulted in our receiving our favorite room, hanging over the beach and shaded from the afternoon sun by a palm tree. We spent our mornings enjoying organic coffee purchased from the Saturday farmer's market, and brewed in our small kitchen on our balcony, watching the beach come... More

We like the rooms facing the ocean with the outdoor kitchen. It is great fun to watch the sunset and cook dinner on the terrace. Friendly staff, nothing fancy but decent and convenient to Old Town restaurants and shops.

this is a solid value for a beachfront property. rooms are older, but very clean, bare minimum here, nothing fancy, but great value. as with most places in PV internet is available and free in the lobby area (this is very clearly stated on their website Howard!!) The way around that is to go out onto your balcony and log... More

I made reservations at Emperador so I could have a working vacation. The website says "free internet access, free computers in the lobby complimentary". You are supposed to understand that means no wifi in any of the rooms. When i went there to check in and kearned the truth I requested the room be cancelled. They said no. So I... More

This was very inexpensive and a great deal! We lucked out and got the only room that has wifi in the room (just because it's right above the wireless router in the lobby below), and the room was large, clean, and comfortable. The friendly desk staff hooked us up with this room as a free upgrade, since we booked online... More
