“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Nice hotel in Old Vallarta. Clean and well run. Flawless check-in. I reserved with Orbitz and all was in perfect order when I arrived at hotel. Nice center courtyard area with tables and chairs which was a pleasant place to sit and have a coffee while using the free WiFi. Very close to the beach and many good places to eat. There's also a very good restaurant attached to the same building.

I want to let all women travelling alone to PV that this is a great location, safe and comfortable economical hotel right in the centre of PV, close to everything. Some days I thought I was the only person in the hotel with the pool to myself...heaven.
The restaurant downstairs serves a great breakfast.
The staff were all so sweet and accomodating.
The hotel is clean, quaint and mexican and a great value.
If you're the pretensious type, this isn't for you.
If you want a mexican experience, try it. I know I will definately go back.
Adios!

Room Tip: My room was on the third floor at the back, quiet but there are stairs, so it could be challenge for...

Recently stayed there and was pleasantly surprised. It is in a great location if you like to be in the middle of things. Even with that, it was not noisey at night. The restuarant closes early. No bars immediately beside hotel. Although a little rough around the edges, everything was clean ( except the pool..but who goes in anyway) No elevator, so don't stay if you have trouble with the stairs. There are a few rooms on the first floor though, so perhaps you could get one.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The prices are more than fair for what you get. There is a communal kitchen on the 5th floor and many people cook some of their meals there. It was kept very clean from what I could see.

It is very close to some of the best bars and restuarants in PV. One of my favorites Nacho Daddies is 1 block. The restaurant off the lobby serves what might be the best breakfast in Vallarta. Overall I would highly recommend if you are looking to save money. Great little hotel.

Room Tip: higher is better off the street, if you can handle the stairs

Agradecemos sus lindos comentarios, es un placer servirlos.
Como decía usted, si estamos cerca de muchos bares, restaurantes y también la playa pero esto también puede significar un poco mas de ruido, afortunadamente contamos con habitaciones lejos de la calle y así no ser molestado por el ruido de la calle.
Esperamos tenerlos nuevamente.

This is the fourth time I have stayed here and it gets better every time,the hotel
is very central and the location is excellent,the beach is about 2 blocks away and
there are lots of restaurants and watering holes nearby.I was on the 3rd floor and the room
was excellent,very clean and very comfortable,I had a large TV,king size new bed and mattress
and a small fridge to keep stuff cold,all this for 42 bucks a night. The maid service
was excellent and the staff were very friendly and polite.

This is an old building but is continually kept up by the excellent room staff , garden staff, and excellent management....All problems are dealt with immediately...we stayed in room 211 next to the pool-non smoking..The A/C worked great ...the shower was hot..and there were 2 dble beds in our room...This is a busy hotel and while there (2 weeks) some nights it was full.....This is a great area for being in the centre of things....Fredys is great for brekky but I found better value at the pancake house down the next block.......All valuables like passports etc should be in front office safe....Dario and Juan Carlos (Mgrs) absolutely excellent and set a fine example to the rest of the staff of how guests should be treated courteously and with respect ......That keeps guests coming back and I will stay there again...

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker--make sure you get a non smoking room with a window or you will suffer .

There are many reasons I enjoyed my stay at the Posada de Roger. The location is ideal. The hotel staff are bilingual and extremely helpful. Lastly, it is a great value. This is my preferred hotel in Puerto Vallarta. I've stayed at other hotel which have higher star ratings but they do not compare. The adjoining restaurant, Freddy's, is a great place for coffee and breakfast. The beach is a short five minute walk from the hotel. The pool is clean and well-maintained. The hotel's wi-fi is the best I have experienced, quick and reliable.

Wow. This is THE trickiest review I've ever written for Trip Advisor. Here's how my recent stay went over 6 nights.

My partner and I arrived and were greeted by Orlando. PLEASE give him a raise! Not only was he efficient, but he was very helpful, extremely friendly and spoke EXCELLENT English. He was the best contact we had during our stay! He checked us in and we went to our room (#107). We were surprised to find the door OPEN, but we now know why.

It had a VERY strong smell of mold/mildew. I have learned a valuable life lesson: we should have said something IMMEDIATELY! After 2 nights, I finally spoke to Juan Carlos (another terrific guy...he also allowed me to print our boarding passes for the return flight!). He said that they could get us a new room, but we'd have to do it in the morning. So, we spent a third night in the room and by then my (and, to a lesser degree, my partners) allergies were really acting up.

I spoke to one of the managers (Dario...another great guy) the next morning & told him our situation. Within 1 hour, we had a new room (#208). WHAT A DIFFERENCE! As soon as we walked in, we could tell that there was no obvious mold/mildew smell. The only unfortunate thing was the bed. It was comfortable, but VERY small for 2 people (I'm 5'9" and my partner is 5'10", and we both weigh under 165 lbs., so it's not like we are large people). It made for 3 nights of not-as-good-as-we-would-have-liked sleep. At least the room didn't smell. Unfortunately for me, the damage was done. I've been home for 3 days now & my allergies are still bothering me and I'm convinced it's because of the mold.

I will tell you that after we switched rooms, they had the mattress and bed frame in the (adorable) courtyard. I don't know what they did or could do. As we walked by it (about 10 feet away), we could smell the mold! It was rather strong. My partner smelled the dresser and door when we were in the room and you could REALLY notice it then. Our guess is that with all of the heat & humidity, it just permeates the wood & doesn't leave. I would personally throw out the dresser and wash the room with bleach. It really was that bad.

On a more positive note, the location, in the heart of the Zona Romantica, was EXCELLENT. MANY great shops & restaurants within walking distance and only a few blocks from the beach. The attached restaurant, Fredy Tucan (only open for breakfast & lunch...review to follow this one) was EXCELLENT! Both of the A/C units worked VERY well in our rooms. Clean bathrooms (my "average" rating of cleanliness below had to do with the mold), no bugs (we had one TINY gecko in our first room, but it was fine). FIRM, but (to us) comfortable mattresses.

This IS a budget hotel with some good qualities to it. If, however, we were to ever go back to PV, we would look for another place. Hard to recommend with the mold and (second) small mattress.

Room Tip: Stay away from room 107 if you do go.

Good Afternoon,
Thank you for your comments, we think it is important to mention that Puerto Vallarta is a tropical place that contains really strong humidity, when arriving to PV you will notice we are made up of this and can automatically feel it in the air. We are trying our best to get rid of this but as you may know it is something natural and it produces this smell. There are very few rooms that might get this smell once in a while and usually happend to the rooms on the first floor, like I mentioned before we are trying to get rid of this smell permanantly.

We also just got new mattresses in all of our rooms, each with different sizes but can try to get you one that fits your needs. The single bed is quiet small but the double bed is for two people. We also have king size beds. If you decide to stay with us once again we can definantly get you a mattress pad for extra comfort, you can always ask for these at the front desk.
We hope you give us the oportunity to have you back and experience our services in a much better way. We will get you the room that best fits your need!
Regards,
