“A clean, well run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

We decided to stay at La Casa de Las Palomas after reading TripAdvisor reviews and after looking over the hotel's own website.
http://www.casadelaspalomas.com/

We were very impressed by the friendly reception as well as the simple but attractive layout and rooms. Our room, #209, was very large for the price of $440 pesos. The bed was a firm but comfortable king sized, there was a small writing desk, a basic place to hang clothing, and an efficient and clean bathroom. The bedroom has a ceiling fan, useful for cooling off.

If there were any deficiencies, it was the lighting. There was enough to see by but no ceiling lamp,if I recall correctly.

Our bathroom sink was in the room, in the European fashion.

There was a modern shower in a stall with a sliding door.
The hot water in the shower arrived quickly and there seemed to be plenty of it.

The hotel rooms are arranged around a roofed atrium, and there's a dance floor on the primer piso, what we'd call the second floor.

On our return, we stayed in a corner room, I believe it was # 106, which had a bit more privacy, although the bedroom had a glassed double door, with gauzy curtains, leading to an airshaft. When the doors were opened, some noise was conducted down the shaft.

Although the bathroom was marginally bigger, the writing desk was situated in the arc of the door opening. One had to be careful if seated at the desk if one's partner was coming in or going out.

The top floor is dedicated to a terrace, equipped for special events and parties. There's a small, roped off area for smokers, of which I was not able to take advantage, due to a severe storm.

The staff is friendly and helpful.

I'm not a big fan of Tonalá, but we would stay at La Casa de Las Palomas if flying out or coming back from the Guadalajara airport.

This hotel is five star at a two star price. Clean rooms and public area, safe parking, and pleasant staff. We have been staying her every year for the past seven years coming in and going back home to Ontario. Every year there are changes to make it better and they are doing a splended job. Would recommend at any time.

Same as two years ago- nice king beds/new sheets & linens/total no smoking hotel/quiet/secure parking/all plumbing works first class/clean-clean-clean! What makes it better is the rate for two is $440 pesos....up just 40 pesos in two years ago. This place cannot be beat.

Went to Case De Las Palomas after reading reviews at tripadvisor. It was clean and the people there were very helpful. We stayed here thinking it was more quiet than the other hotels reviewed in Tonala. We had to laugh though, the roosters started crowing at about 3 a.m. and wouldn't let up. There must have been a few of them out there because they were definitely talking to each other. It is also a dog friendly hotel and some friendly dog started barking in the evening, probably missing his master who had gone out to dinner. He did quiet down after awhile. Hey, it's Mexico. We loved it and would go again in a minute. The garage was as stated, locked and safe. Shopping was wonderful, and we felt safe for the entire trip. We were there for Thanksgiving weekend. There was plenty of room even though we did make reservations. No problem finding places to eat. There is a nice restaurant near by and many other places to eat on the main road, along with a little store right across the street. We would definitely stay there again.

This is by far the nicest hotel we have stayed at in Tonala.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, even finding us a mechanic for our vehicle repairs. Some of the staff spoke English. Our tiny chihuahua puppy was welcomed without any problems, in fact the staff loved her.

The hotel is fairly new and spotlessly clean with secure parking for vehicles right on the ground floor(not tucked away on another street and difficult to find as in some cases). the whole hotel is a non smoking so no second hand smoke filtering up through your bathroom window. There is a very pleasant roof-top seating area to unwind after an exhausting day of scouring the artisan shops and markets for bargains. Our room was pleasant, modern and spacious, wireless internet worked in our room and there was TV and air conditioning should we have required either of those things.
While not located as close to the markets as some hotels, the extra 2 blocks walk was well worth it.

My wife and I traveled to Tonala to attend a big family reunion. We were one of the last to arrive so everyone's house was already full so we stayed at one of the hotels. We stayed here for two days and stayed one at Hotel Tonala. This place is much, much nicer. It was recently built and you can tell. The rooms are big, they have AC, good size bathrooms, a nice terrace, they had tables all around where you sit and chat, they have parking on the ground floor. The downside was the beds, they were too hard for this spoiled American, but we found this to be true at most Mexican hotels in which we've stayed. At Hotel Tonala you had to park 1.5 blocks away from the hotel. That doesn't sound like much, but with the traffic and narrow one- way streets and the tiangis (outdoor market) on Sundays and Thursdays, it gets pretty tricky. Casa de Las Palomas is in a much better location. It's about four blocks from the main square of Tonala. We paid 440 pesos a night, turns out to about $38. I highly recommend!!

What a great find! Immaculate rooms, an excellent location in the center of Tonala with very secure parking. And to top it off, it's a pet friendly hotel! Despite it's central location, it's very quiet and there's an excellent restaurant a block away. You may need to ask for extra towels. Found the staff very accommodating. It's also just a few blocks from the autopista to Moreleia, Mexico City and other points east. Will stay there again!
