This past July (2012), we went to PV for a week long vacation. We spent our first night at the Hotel Catedral Vallarta and it was perfect! It was economical, CLEAN and the staff was super friendly. Upon our arrival, the very friendly and impeccably dressed (in authentic Mexican wear) greeted us and with agua de jamaica (hibiscus-flavored water). She then brought us up to our rooms and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The room (for 2 people) was spacious and most importantly, CLEAN. The bathroom served it's purpose and I was impressed that there was hot water (not that we really needed it b/c it was extremely hot and humid there in July). Given that it was extremely hot, the AC unti (which I feared wasn't going to work well enough) did, in fact, work well (along with the ceiling fan). I was able to sleep really well, despite the heat. Not an easy feat in PV during the summer!
I have travelled all over Mexico and I was extremely impressed with their hospitality and the cleanliness of the hotel. It is not a luxurious hotel, but for the price and location, you can't go wrong. It is in the nice, older part of PV and close to the malecon. If you are looking for a relatively cheap and very clean place to stay, this is it!!!
