I wound up staying here because it was inexpensive for a private room and the hostel rooms here and at other places I was checking got filled. I really enjoyed my huge room with a refrigerator, private balcony with 3 chairs and 2 hammocks and huge bathroom off the balcony. You step out onto the balcony and to your left... More

We booked this hotel because of the price, we got the junior suite. The room is large with two double beds, AC, fridge and balcony, so far it is good. The way the furniture is arranged, the hot water in the shower (electric wires!), the dead(!) flowers in the room, no table or chairs or wardrobe or reading lamp, very... More

This place is a great deal. I stayed here for over a week and the room cost less than $200 U.S. Nice location close to markets and just far away not to be loud from the night life, at least not in the room. The kitchen is pretty barebones but if you not trying to cook crazy it'l do. WiFi... More

After reading the other reviews we were hesitant to book here but were very nicely surprised to find the rooms clean, cool, no damp smell that others mentioned, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were great. We extended our stay and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Montezuma if we end up coming back.

This place is just great. You get a lot for your money. We stayed in one of the private room with A/C downstairs . The room was very clean. They have a old, small kitchen area, hammocks area, wifi area and free use computer. The staff is very nice, the manager give us very useful information. We went to the... More

Since there were so many positive reviews of the hotel I thought it would be great, but I was sadly mistaken. It was a sizable mistake since we invested 4 nights of our vacation time at this property. Since I often go by reviews, I wanted to post this one so that other travelers will be forewarned. The room looked... More

We had already expected the complaints. When she came at the hotel, she was only complaining. In the high – high season everything is full booked. In the high season the rooms are more expensive in Montezuma. She had made a booking on hostelworld.com. You have two options. She has chosen for cheapest option: the basic room. She was expecting...

We got there late at night and they showed us to our 2 rooms but we found them dirty, buggy, and didn't have working AC even though we paid for rooms with it. We went back to the desk and asked for a different room, the only one available was a 2 bed in 1 room. It looked much cleaner... More

We moved to a first floor room as ground level smelt stuffy (and had people walking past the windows) & it was much better. Bigger room with more air & a lighter bathroom. Great area for hammocks, pool table & sofas however lack of wifi reach meant these seemed underused. Kitchen is functional & pretty well equipped compared to others... More

The hotel was exactly what you would expect it to be for the price. Most importantly for us, as two young female travelers, we wanted something safe, close to town and inexpensive. The rooms were sparse but clean, the staff was friendly, and you were right in the heart of Montezuma. We had a great experience with the hotel and... More
