We very much enjoyed our stay at Dickinson Guest House! Our room could not have been lovelier, complete with an outdoor terrace overlooking the peaceful street. The B&B sits in a graceful residential neighborhood, a short ride from the historic center of Guadalajara. But the immediate neighborhood itself is worth exploring as well, as we enjoyed strolling its peaceful streets... More

It was fun hosting you in Guadalajara after your week long vacation in Mexico City, Bob and Juan. It was a good time to wind down a bit before heading back to the states. I am glad you liked the general feel of privacy and no timelines for anything, really. You both are great guests and hope to see you... More

We spent a pleasant week at Dickinson Guest House. It is very well located, with lots of food places nearby and literally minutes away from Guadalajara's downtown. The rooms are quite comfortable and the neighborhood is very quite at night. I would definitely stay again whenever I need to go on a business trip to Guadalajara.

Hi again Doug! I am sorry that you will not be able to make it this Christmas 2014. I hope you are feeling better soon. You have been here often enough to really feel at home and you know it! I look forward to a visit sometime in 2015. Have a great New Year, even with the things going on... More

Just returned from a 4th stay at Dickinson Guest. James has a neat, clean and friendly place to stay. James, helpful as always to me to get around the city. Lets a guest do their own thing also, which made my visit great.

From traveling around the world, I know what a guesthouse is. I was surprised to find out that B&B's are used in America and Europe has more guest houses. Guesthouses are supposed to be a bed only-usually in a big families house. James told me that it was still what he wanted, so it would eventually leverage his ability to... More

Thank you for the kind review. The mariachi festival is a very popular event in Guadalajara. And for a group of people, a house is so much more festive than a hotel-especially when it is a festive occasion. I hope that wwe will see you again next year-making it a destination city for just that. You were good house guests... More

The Dickinson house was a fantastic alternative to my normal 'hotel' stays. The house was beautiful and comfortable, and James and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed to get around town! Also of great convenience was full use of the kitchen. I highly recommend the master suite with the private balcony. Next... More

Thank you Chip for the nice review. They are very much appreciated! I hope the weather in Seattle is not a cold as I remember it to be many years ago-but with the current storms pounding on the Pacific Coast, I suspect you may be getting a bit of it-more than usual. You were great guests that seemed to really... More

Guadalajara is my second home. I live in Colorado about 3 months out of the year. This summer I invited several friends to visit me and more decided to RSVP than expected. I came across several rentals in this large city, but some of the ones that were very affordable were way out of the way. For the number of... More

Excelent place to stay, very comfortable, the rooms are also very nice. The people there is very nice and very heedful. Everything in there it's to make you feel like home. Is placed in one of the nicest, safe and centric places in Guadalajara. It has a couple of parks one block away very nice to hang out.

Jim was extremely helpful throghout the booking, stay and departure process. We stayed in touch via e-mail and everything went according to plan. The house exactly as described, in an up and coming area of Guadalajara, super easy access to everything and very safe. Had a couple minor plumbing issues which were addressed immediately by Jim. Definitely recommended for stays... More

Thank you for the review. I trust that your stay here was as good as you reviewed. It is different when I rent out all of the rooms, because the review are usually on FlipKey -making them less familiar with the host.I wish I had the time to meet and talk with all 8-10 of you, but needed to give...
