We are not much for the "party scene" on NYE, but since we were on holiday this year we indulged in some local festivities! We traveled with another couple to Guadalajara,Mexico to spend a bit of time with their relatives. We found a house that looked like it was perfect for our needs at a reasonable price.

James is a very pleasant owner and we enjoyed his help with our exploring. Room was very nice and clean. My only complaint is that the main area of the house needs to be cleaned, not quite up to expectations for a 5 star BB. Also quite a distance from Centro and airport.

Hello G.G. Thank you for taking the time to write a kind review. A lot of people who enjoy their stay often just get busy and forget. I am a bit embarrassed that I cannot find you as a guest last February, by any name or location on Trip Advisor. I am guessing that you may have been in a... More

Thank you M. for the kind words. I am discovering that larger groups of travelers tend to enjoy the full house stay with or without maid service. I respect your wishes for privacy and am happy you chose to have a little help. I very much appreciate keeping everything tidy. It seems the bed configuration worked well for you. Maybe... More

I took my family to the Mariachi festival in Guadalajara, Mexico this year. It has been a few years since I had gone by myself or with friends. I do have family in this city, but there was not enough room for the 5 of us. I found this house to be perfect for our needs. My wife and I... More

We thank you for your review and are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Your kids are great with the different dogs that are in our two parks, and I think they enjoyed the diversion from the exciting, yet busy central core. It was a good festival this year even with the rain that we had. It's finally over and... More

After looking at our itinerary for the annual jazz festival in Guadalajara, Mexico this year, my husband reminded me that our friends had asked ME if I would see if our booked hotel had rooms left for them so we could stay together. We usually go together, but there was a glitch with scheduling and it was not until pretty... More

I had another wonderful experience here in June of this year. I had stayed here before for a family wedding but did not have the address. My daughter who made the first reservation sent me the information. It is long overdue, but I felt that it was important to let travelers know what a friendly environment they will be missing...

Tina, It was great to see you back sooner than expected. It always makes for a much easier settle in if you know your way around as you know. And I did see that you knew where to get just about anything you needed. Another thing I meant to mention was tipping the maid. Although she is paid well, it... More

We were a group of 10 people, from 25 to 50 years old and rented the "Casa Dinckinson" for about 10 days. Everything was amazing, the house is great and very big, with everything you could need in it (kitchen tools, travel guides, internet access, printers...) The beds are awesome and you can easily fit 10 people very comfortably. The... More

As your rental was for all four + bedrooms, I will just say thank you for your kind assessment of the property. It is a B&B first, but if people want the whole house, it makes for a great short vacation for me as well. Thank everyone for choosing my home for your stay here. And even though this is... More

The house was very well situated in the city, very clean (daily housekeeping), and welcoming. There is a nice patio to have a quiet breakfast in the morning, a nice leaving room and a couple of bathrooms (a main one and a smaller one, both upstairs to share. Also one in the biggest bedroom). Plenty of space in each bedroom... More

We stayed a week at Jame's house and we had a very great time. The house is very clean, comfortable and beautiful. There are all the amenities. The neighborhood is very calm and safe. We enjoyed a lot the city of Guadalajara. I liked the place and I recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Guadalajara!

It is a special treat to read such kind words from those who rent the entire house. There are so many people that would not have the time to send that information for other travelers to see.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dickinson Guest House B&B is very conveniently located centrally to the city itself- in the cities new business hub, yet just a few minute away from the 24 hour traffic that can be often annoying at night.The many attractions of the historical district are still minutes away by taxi or public transit that runs 24/7 just a few blocks from the property. There are so many historical sites throughout this large metropolis that most travelers never take the time to see outside of the museums and cathedral downtown. Guadalajara does have a Basilica for those that enjoy even older more important architectural gems-if they know about them! The B&B (or whole house rental) is located in Colonia Chapalita- a very well maintained and calm neighborhood, surrounded with several beautiful public parks, allowing for a great rest at night, ready for the next days adventure! We also have a shortcut to the very enjoyable towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala, home of many arts and crafts centers that everyone must see!We take pride in our business services for the traveler that needs fast wi-fi and free phone service- all inclusive in the price of their room. This even includes a printer, thus allowing complete privacy if desired, while finishing up some work before going out for dinner to the abundance of restaurants that surround this neighborhood. We offer a free breakfast of your choosing-on your time schedule, unlike long hotel buffet lines that offer breakfast of their choosing at hours that might not be the perfect time for you. Here, we want our guests to feel at home. They can eat when they want to, 24/7! Come and feel the difference of the personal touches and amenities offered, while enjoying your privacy that is very much respected.There are many rooms and areas to get to know other guests if that is preferred. Many friendships have been made here, by travelers from all over the world! ... more   less
