Loved the location! They have a restaurant onsite and a coffee shop. Close to walk to many restaurants and shops. Very little English spoken here but they try their best. Wish the rooms had coffee makers but they do not. Free wi-fi which worked fine. They have a nice parking lot but we did not use so not know if... More

I was a little nervous about staying here as we usually stay with family. This ended up being a great decision. We had an excellent view of the Cathedral church and square FREE WiFi. Everything is within walking distance (museum, stores, pharmacies, etc.) Our room was clean. The staff was very attentive and very friendly. Having a restaurant on the... More

Stayed here for 1 night, reviews were accurate, this is a nice place in a great location. There is nothing outstanding or bad to say. Parking was a little lacking, didn't use the gym but seemed adequate. Beds were comfortable, AC worked great, good options for food on-site. Nice views of the city too. I would stay here again if...

We left Sayulita for Tepic due to Hurricane Patricia. The hotel was handling a huge influx of similar evacuees and did so with aplomb. The staff was helpful and gracious under stressful circumstances. The rooms are nice, clean and well-appointed and the restaurant was good. The location on the square was lovely.

This was our fourth (at least) stay at the Fray Junipero Sera. We like it because of its location (right on the central "Jardin" in front of the Cathedral), its cleanliness, its service, its dining, and its parking. Its wifi service is sporadic at times, but still within the acceptable range. It has a good exercise room, too! If you... More

Just returned from a short stay at Hotel Fray Junipero Serra in Tepic. Nice, very well located on the plaza; a stone's throw from the cathedral; good restaurant, clean room, prompt and very friendly service and free parking. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here many times enjoying the hotel, staff, and restaurant! We enjoy the view of the Plaza with its veried activities/performances. The sound has always ended at a very reasonable hour and never been a problem. The rooms are beautify clean and appointed, Internet has been strong, good hot water and quiet!

The perfect location for our two-day stay, with a variety of restaurants and street snacks close by, activities and lots of people watching opportunities on the plaza. Our night there was also the first night of Tepic's Baile de Danza, with modern dance followed by top quality folklorico dancers on the plaza, which we could watch from our room, before... More

In Mexico, security and prompt service and clean room with a good beds and four pillows on each--what more can you ask for? Perfectly located next to Cathedral and city plaza. Good restaurant and on-site secure parking.

Hotel is located at the city center. We had a room on the top floor viewing the city, view is amazing. Hotel staff is friendly, rooms are very clean. Coffee shop and restaurant located inside hotel with great breakfast food. Would go back again.
