Spent a weekend there and wished we had stayed somewhere else. The hotel is well situated at the major crossroads of Palenque and is fairly easy to find. But that's where the positive stops. The rooms are Spartan, not really clean (especially the bathroom) and the beds are extremely uncomfortable. It's quite below average for Mexican hotels and definitely way... More

The hotel has a good location for exploring the town and surroundings. clean and good rooms, and pretty quiet ( if people are not howling around in the corridors as they did one night). We especially enjoyed the small garden with a nice pool after long days sightseeing the area. However, the service at the front desk could be a... More

Im a loyal traveler and I really pay attention to thr reviews place on this website... when checking my hotel options I read those of this hotel.

The Maya Palenque is a huge disappointment. The location is great. In Palenque's La Canada area and near the bus terminal - in fact right across the street from the new terminal. The pool area is really nice. But it's downhill from there. Checking in was a hassle. It took them 20 minutes to find the reservation - even with... More

It was your regulation Best Western, good, clean, and what you expect. Swimming pool is a great extra as Palenque is very hot and humid. Staff were very helpful/ Only stayed one night as we found a pretty good deal to get to San Cristobal via the ruins, waterfall and swimming hole. The cost of which was less than the... More

For more than $100 dollars a night we were not satisfied at all. If it was only 30-40 dollars like the other hotels nearby, that were the same, I would have been satisfied. The rooms were clean, that I can honestly say. The staff are very nice and friendly. You cannot control the AC, and its humid here, its either... More

I don't have anything bad to say about this hotel. We got exactly what we expected. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location was good. The pool was awesome for the kids.There is a pool bar setup there but nothing is ever served because there isn't a bartender. Not much else I could say.

Clean, friendly staff, and well located. Be prepared that the receptionist may speak very limited English.

The Best Western Palenque is located within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in the town center. The desk and restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. I am a vegetarian, and the restaurant staff was able to cook me up an off-menu item to accommodate my wishes; I appreciated that immensely. The pool area is very nice, although I... More

Nice pool and outside garden with Palapas. Beds harder than rocks. Nice clean place with little ambience. Has restaraunt on the premises. No free breakfast. After one might we walked 50 yards down the road to the Mayan Tulipane, which is a dandy place with real Mexican hospitality and people who can speak English. I agree, the beds in Mexico... More
