Place looks better once you are inside than from the outside. Also, the walls are very thin and noise can be an issue at night. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is not as close to the Expo as I thought it was going to be. Might choose a different place in the future. If you are just getting... More

Maybe I was just lucky, but I keep remarking how impressed I was by the price/quality relationship of this hotel, since I paid less than 600 pesos a night for a wide, clean and recently remodelled room, with a huge comfy bed inside a room with flat screen TV with over 60 cable channels and a wide window overlooking the...

Even tho if you're driving getting to it can be difficult because of the one way street is on. Once you get to it, you really don't have to drive very much. Store and restaurants are walking distance. Across the street you'll find a Casino ( slot machines only ), karaoke bars and disco. A five minute walk takes you... More

The hotel has changed ownership recently, so there are still some kinks to work out. We had a problem with the first room we were in (A/C didn't work, sink had a leak when used) but the staff was very willing to find us another room, even tho they were quite full. We will stay there again next time we... More

This is a good place for the budget-concious traveler. It is located 2 block from Plaza del Sol. There are many night clubs in the immediate vicinity. This motel is a good place to sleep but it is nothing fancy.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August, 2002. The staff showed us a few rooms before we decided on one on the second floor. It overlooked the street (noisy) and had a broken bed frame. Plus, when we returned home after a night out, our toothpaste tube and sadly, our toothbrushes, were literally covered in cockroaches. We asked to... More
