My girlfriend and I happened upon Hotel Belmar randomly online, and we are very happy with our choice. It is exactly what we needed!
Here is the key- know what to expect from an affordable hotel situated in a busy (read:convenient!) part of town before you go, and you won't be disappointed.
The hotel itself is incredibly clean! The decor is lovely- so much art from many different disciplines decorate the walls- I walked down other hallways just to see it all! There is reliable wifi throughout the hotel, and a computer in the lobby if you can't bring yours. The owner (I think she was the owner?), Maria Jose, was so incredibly helpful and informative, very willing to talk to us about the city, and has incredible knowledge of it. The location was ideal for us! An easy walk to the beach, to downtown, to the "zona romantica," etc. Lots of services very close by- pharmacies, small produce markets, etc.
The rooms are small but had more than enough space for what we needed. The shower was big and hot water was reliable and plentiful. The beds were firm, but that was no problem for us. Yes, it was a little loud, but anyone who has lived in a lively city or who has been anywhere other than a very expensive, soundproofed hotel in Mexico will tell you that is normal. Just bring some earplugs if you think you will be sensitive to the sounds.
The receptionists were great and super helpful!
I will most definitely come back if I am ever in need of a hotel in PV again (but now I'm living in a tiny apartment very close by the hotel belmar....and trust me, I miss the hotel,.) :)
