Clean, comfortable and great atmosphere... third time we have stayed and have never been disappointed. Starting with courteous staff and ending with a good breakfast. It's also close to many good attractions. Definitely a thumbs up!

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Zico. The location was perfect - easy access from the freeway, walking distance to the train station and within short-distance of most inner city attractions. The breakfast was very good as well. I liked the feel of the room and the classical look. It made me feel like I was staying in Mexico.I... More

This was a very strange hotel. I like the design elements, but it's a bit of lipstick on an otherwise weird property. The weirdest experience I've ever had is that my card activated room door did not lock right. It was in some mode that it didn't re-lock itself automatically, you had to re-swipe the card to lock it. I'm... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Zico. The location was super convenient, the beds were comfortable, and the free breakfast added a lot of value. Big shout out to Aracely, the lady making the omelettes at the omelette station....She was great :)

Daughter and I were excited to book a 'boutique' hotel. Thought it would be quirky-different from what we're used to. Got what we thought was a great deal on hotwire.com ($64 + $17 in taxes/fees). Turned out to be an OK price for the area. I certainly wouldn't have paid more. This could be a good stay if staff upped... More

This was our second stay and we returned because the first was such a pleasure. Hotel Zico is super comfortable, has a great breakfast offering, and is designed with original touches. The front desk staff is warmly welcoming and helpful. The only minor wrinkle is finding the driveway the first time: stay alert and you'll be fine, though.

We booked several rooms here at a good "block rate" for us and our daughter's wedding guests. Pros: Decent sized rooms (especially on the side with the veranda / common balcony), modern furniture and fittings, quiet in spite of being right next to I-85, clean and with good housekeeping. Firm, comfortable beds. Unusual faucets in bathroom sinks that may intrigue... More
