“Great location, great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I tend to be picky where I stay so I was concerned to take a group to this old hotel but it had such a good location so gave it a try. Fantastic. Location perfect, rooms comfortable and ornate, serve very good. Even the food was wonderful. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the walls were paper thin. I heard a guy come in at midnight, next door, and hang up all his clothes. Luckily he went right to bed. Don't let this stop you as staying in this hotel is all part of the experience while you explore the area

Room Tip: Their buffet breakfast is very reasonable and very good.

This hotel is greatly located in the Centro District. It is at walking distance to most tourist attractions, federal and state offices, to the flea market which gives you a wonderful experience of real Mexico. The Hotel is nice, beautiful, quiet and splendid. The hotel and the rooms are nicely decorated. The staff is really attentive and helpful. For what I paid, this was the best value that I got for my money at an Hotel.

This is wonderful choice for your visit to Guadalajara. They really take care of you. If you want a driver, they have it. It has a restaurant which was very really good. There are other restaurant all around. Staff really looked after you. I was a single female traveling alone. They were very attentive.

A perfect location to be able to walk to all the sights in downtown Guadalajara. The hotel has the beauty of a grand old hotel with all the modern conveniences. The queen double was very large and we appreciate space. There is a swim pool and gym. Many sitting areas around the hotel in addition to the lobby. Complaints: the breakfast food was only adequate in quality. Wifi is only in the main lobby. There is a step up into the bathroom of our room that proved lethal when not fully awake.

Room Tip: off the street

If you want to discover the many wonders of Historical Guadalajara, a great place to stay for a reasonable price is at the Hotel Morales. It's historical sure, but the rooms are all updated. The in hotel restaurant is fantastic! You can tell it's a great place to eat by the variety of the clientele. The staff was very attentive. The workout room is well equipped. The pool is nice but unfortunately very cool during our February visit. The location of the hotel is perfect as a jumping off spot to see the downtown sites and great restaurants. Plus, in the beautiful lobby they have an in house pianist ! One evening, a trio of very talented Mariachis entertained us there. It was truly a wonderful experience staying there at the Morales Hotel. Skippyfrizz. You will enjoy !

My husband and I spent three nights at Hotel Morales. The staff was efficient and welcoming..happily bilingual if needed which came in handy at times. The rooms are on lovely courtyards and are well appointed and immaculate. The breakfast has a broad selection of traditional and other menu items. aAt least on weekends, there is a pianist in the lobby which is lovely. The location is just right for seeing all the Centro Historico sites. Rooftop pool inviting. Hotel has attendants out front at all times and is in a busy, safe area. Enjoy Guadalajaran hospitality!

Room Tip: I think the rooms off the main courtyard might be bigger but the rooms off the second courtyard are...

Spent 2 nights at the hotel during recent trip to Guadalajara. Room was large, bath huge; and very clean and well appointed. Breakfast buffet offered many choices, or you could order from a menu. Location near tour buses made for easy access to other parts of town.
