we found this hotel to be a wonderful surprise. the location was great right on the plaza and the view was lovely . the Cathedral was right there next to the plaza. I think this might be the best hotel in Tepic for the value.

This austere, modern, and cold hotel is not what I usually like. I usually prefer the much older, colonial style, smaller hotels with lots of character. For some reason, I have not discovered this sort of hotel in Tepic. I used to stay at the Hotel Don Juan, but it is needlessly expensive. The remodeled rooms are nice, but small... More

We recently spent two nights at the Hotel Fray Junipero Serra in downtown Tepic. The location is excellent as it’s located in front of the Central Park and the Cathedral. From everything I saw around Tepic it is the nicest, most modern, and best located hotel in the city. Our group included 4 persons so we took advantage of the... More

I traveled to Tepic with a group from our church for a week's stay. The hotel was chosen for its tripadvisor rating and we were not disappointed. I would definitely choose this hotel again for any future trips to Tepic. The guest services staff was always helpful, especially Adriana (group services coordinator) and Maria (intern with excellent command of English).... More

I've been back 3 times to this hotel and am planning another trip shortly. I like the free parking under the hotel and just my vehicle there and walk everywhere. The rooms are airy, large LCD tv and king size bed in the room I usually take facing the plaza and cathedral. I usually don't get up too early and... More

A business hotel with all the necessary amenities. Good restaurant and great staff. A bit noisy if you get the park or main street view. WiFi worked in the hall but the router at the end of the hall was out. Computers in lobby or cable connect were fast and plenty. Restaurant was good and inexpensive. Great service. A good... More

I stayed here with my family this week and thought it was a very good value. I would definitely return. Earlier that day I emailed the hotel (using my poor Spanish) to request a room , and they were expecting us when we arrived. We parked our car in the garage for free, which was nice. The location is great... More

This Hotel is just placed in the pest place in town, is like everything is around without too much walking. Tepic Town is quiet but seems to be the higher the better so street noise will not disturb, anyway this is not a hassle. People at front desk are speedy with a sincere smile on their face everytime. Only complaint... More

Hotel Fray Junipero Serra is located in the heart of Tepic across from the Plaza and the Cathedral. It is a short walk to shopping. The staff is very accommodating and made every effort to meet our needs.
