I "stayed" one night in this place and it has been the worst experience in my entire life. The place was old and not very clean. The shower was terrible and there was no hot water, but the worst part was the 4 massive cockroaches inside my bed!! I ended sleeping in the car

The owner was nice to us and it was a really good choice for staying in Manzanillo just two nights and not spend a lot.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights back in August. The rooms are clean, spacious and fit two double beds with room to spare. The owner is very nice and extremely helpful. Her children are adorable as well. She takes very good care of her hotel. She was also helpful in acting as a go between by relaying... More
