“Great location, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

QDJ is in a decent area about 4 blocks from the heart of Tlaquepaque - close to great dining (for non-vegetarians) and good shopping and some interesting history. The hotel is small and clean.

Our room (#16) was spotless, but could use some serious updating; the lounge furniture was not comfortable, but the bed was great; the bathroom was small and outdated - and there is ample space to enlarge it and make it first rate! Hopefully, this will be included in planned "service and infrastructure upgrades".

The restaurant had limited choices for vegetarians, but the food was good. Bar has some interesting holdings on the shelves - take time to peruse before you order your same old, same old.

Outside lounge and pool area is nice, with comfortable lounges. Clientele is varied: wayfarers, families, business folk, destination stoppers all come here, but probably not puffed-up expense account guys. Maybe it's the friendly, helpful staff that makes this combination work. The staff is excellent - front desk, dining room, bar, rooms, kitchen and grounds.

Definitely a place I will keep on my return-to list.

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool might not be the best choice if you like to sleep late. - but if that was the...

Excelent Hotel, very comfortable, very nice decoration, very clean and the service is extraordinary.
I´ll definetely recommend this hotel if you are planning to go to Tlaquepaque.
I didn´t have a chance to try the hotel´s restaurant, but it looks very nice and comfortable.
The pool area is very nice and they also have a very nice garden.
Another great thing is that they accept pets in case you have one.

This is a great place to stay in Tlaquepaque. Short walk to the markets. The place is charming, spacious, and clean. Great breakfast and happy hour. Friendly, informative staff willing to meet any need/question you might have. Pool could have been warmer.

Having stayed at Quinta don Jose B&B for the last 10 or 12 years and occasionally at other B&B's in Tlaquepaque, I am comfortable in saying there is no comparison between the others when it comes to service, comfort and ambience. Mind you that does not say that the others such as Casa Flores, Casa la Amor or any of the other 5 B&B's we have stayed with are anything to be ashamed of, they are all great.

Spent a nice weekend seeing the sights, window shopping & enjoying the local bnar/restaurants. The hotel was clean comfortable & most important very friendly. It's right in the heart of town & has easy access for tourist transportation to Tonala & Guadalahara. Staff was extremely helpful & warm. Enjoyed relaxing in the bar most evenings watching a little sports on TV (Canadian channels for some reason!). Can't really think of anything bad to say, though if you sleep with window open expect some noises at night, dogs barking etc.

This inn is quaint, but if you want a good night's sleep, ask for a room in the back.The inn is on a busy and noisy street, and traffic picks up early in the morning. Other than the noise, this inn is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter.
