Service was OK. The food was mediocre at best. We were walking by checking menus and the waiter was fairly aggressive in recruiting us. The place looked appealing being on a sidewalk across from the public square so we sat down. There are much better places, walk on by.

This location was excellent! It is right in the center. A block away you will find the food stands and the main taxi/bus stop. you can walk around the plaza and find a lot to see and do. The hotel was very nice and clean and the owner was very nice and helpful as well. The food was delicious and... More

Have stayed here before, as have friends, & never been disappointed. Directly facing the beautiful Plaza Quiroga, which is the center of activity. Next door to the best coffee shop in Patzcuaro, which not only open early, unlike many other places, but also has great meals throughout the day. No need to fear rooms facing the street & plaza here,... More

I wander into this little gem by accident as I had intended to stay across the plaza at Posada San Rafael a good but only average hotel. When I saw the posted rate of 350 pesos w/fireplace I knew I must check it out. My room was absolutey immaculate with 2 double beds, a huge bay window that overlooked the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Hotel Los Escudos with friends. Very nice, quaint hotel! Love the location! The first time, we were so cold in our room..until we realized we could ask for a heater to be brought to our room. Very comfortable after that! The second time, we asked for a heater right away, but... More

Stayed here in August 2007. Patzcuaro is one of the most enchanting pueblos I've seen in Mexico and a great great place to have shopping: its artesanias are excellent and very convenient!!! The best about Hotel Los Escudos is clearly the location, right in Plaza Grande. The hotel is old-charming, with well kept patios. Our room was big and clean,... More

We arrived in town and looked for a place. I checked several and this was N$300, which was quite reasonable. The room had a lovely courtyard, was on the painted zocalo (where they were doing the dance on the old men). It was clean, comfortable and quiet. There is a portico where vendors set up in the evening and there... More

2007 was the second time my family and I returned to Patzcuaro for Day of the Dead. This is a wonderful time to experience Patzcuaro and Los Escudos is well located on the main square. We had two rooms in the back of the hotel which were very quiet and well equipped for Patzcuaro. Please keep in mind that Los... More
