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...

This was our first time at the Dickinson Guest House. My family and I were on a trip to different cities in Mexico and were coming from some time on the beach. Even though our bus came in very late. Leo and James were there to greet us and take us to our rooms. James had some sandwiches out on... More

I was here on business this visit. My visit a year or so ago was for the Mariachi Festival with my family. We had such a great time that I came back and chose to stay here instead of so many new hotels in this area. James has great business amenities that make it easier to have fast internet that...

I stayed in many 5 star hotels all over the world. I picked this guest house because I needed to get my passport at the Canadian visa center which is two blocks away. James prepared me a super delicious home made breakfast (the way I like) on my early arrival. He even took my dog for a walk while I... More

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

I just received a letter for trip Advisor for a past trip I took to Guadalajara, with my Mexican husband. I have family in Guadalajara that do not have a very large home. The owner james and his friends and staff made for an excellent experience! We arrived from all over Mexico to be with our parents who live in... 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.

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.

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
