Friendly staff. Budget conscious hotel right in all the action in Vallarta. breakfast included, clean rooms. Only thing is get a room in the back or the noise will be a problem. close to everything. No beach club but the beach is a mere couple steps away.

I paid $40/night. Credit cards accepted. Spacious room and bathroom, with an excellent shower. Wifi. Outstanding included breakfast buffet. Nice staff. Specify a room not facing the street, otherwise you'll get inundated with noise. Close to the malecon, close to a huge supermarket, close to a lavanderia. Really good budget option, especially considering Vallarta is markedly more expensive than other... More

We have stayed in the Marlyn Hotel a few times and find that it is in an excellent location very close to the Malecon. It is very simple but pleasant. Staff were friendly and beds were comfortable. Overall a nice place to stay!

If you are one of those who spend all day around the town and just want to take a hot bath, a room with A/C, safe box, wifi signal, ceiling fan. Besides the buffet breakfast! One block from the beach, good location to ride the bus and have fun, 3 blocks from the Malecon.

We arrived a night before we were to check into our timeshare and needed a place to stay, We usually can get into the Pescadore behind the Marlyn but it was full. We have tried to stay at the Marlyn a number of times as a last minute walk in but they have always been full. This time we got... More

Friendly and helpful staff, clean, good location, north of the Malecon and a block from the beach. They have a breakfast buffet which is good, and there's also a good, inexpensive restauran next door.

We stayed for four nights in January 2014. What a nice little hotel. Our room was small, with a hard bed, but it was clean and the air conditioner worked great; essential in Puerto Vallarta's humid climate. Staff was friendly; somebody was always cleaning the public areas. Every morning while we ate the decent on-site breakfast for 79 pesos, a... More

It is located in a very central position at 2 blocks from the "malecòn" and about 100mt from the beach. The room was clean and comfortable even if the furniture is quite essential. We spent there 4 nights and everything went very good. The only note is about the shower that is only delimited by the curtain and the water... More

We met a woman in a gift shop. She was from the U.S. and in her 60's. She and her husband go to the Marlyn Hotel every year. So my friend and I stopped in and looked at a room. It was clean and nice. We had breakfast in the lobby restaurant. We would stay here when we return. The... More
