My family and I had a great time at this unique hotel. We enjoyed the restaurant, handball court, ping-pong, and swimming pool. It's 8 minutes walking distance from old town, which was great exercise. Our room had vaulted ceiling and a sitting room. The gardens were beautiful. This is not your typical mainstream place. Enjoy your stay!

Dont expect luxury, its all about great service and kind staff in an old Hacienda style hotel. Rooms are well maintained, you will have everything you need at a reasonable price. Consider a good option if you want to stay outside the town heart.

The Atascadero is a 1960s-70s property, and the lack of modern services really shows. There is no heating or air conditioning, the rooms have, at best, a single electrical outlet, and in many of the rooms, there is no hot water. How they can charge $120 per night (1,600 pesos) is beyond me, but if you have any other option,... More

We stayed at the Rancho Hotel el Atascadero on the outskirts of town to avoid having to drive inside the city with its narrow streets. It was a beautiful retreat with gorgeous gardens, a pool, tennis courts and a restaurant on site. They even had free Wi-Fi (which worked about half the time we were there). The only negatives were...

I wasnt sure about this hotel because it was only rated as a 3 star one, but it was the only one available so we took it. And for my surprise it was so nice and clean ! It is not a walking distance to the center of San Miguel but cabs are cheap, and if you are driving you... More

Firstly, the grounds are beautiful and the rooms are large and pleasant aesthetically. Aside from minor issues (no three-prong outlets), the stay was perfectly satisfactory until the final morning. When we left for the airport around 6:30AM, there was no one at the front desk who was qualified to process the credit card machine, but they told us they'd do... More

A little far from the downtown, the rooms were okay, not great, it was very cold at night but there is a chimney in each room, it helped a little. The service was good. It was pretty quite , not much people, even it was Christmas holiday!
