This hotel is an "HIDDEN" "JEWEL" Hospitality is Great, The entire staff is Great!

Someone stole my laptop while we were out of the room, and the police say that this- guests missing their stuff- is not the first time at El Palacio. The rooms are connected and the doors separating them are not secure at all. The hotel looks old and ruined. The room standards are at par with motel rooms.

Aneesh, After reading your review I felt compelled to state the facts. The police did a complete report and found that you had rented two rooms here at the hotel and that all night long your keys to the 2 rooms were the only keys going in and out as we made sure to read the door locks. It was...

There couldn't be a better location than for this hotel. The view off the balcony was beautiful! Placed in a very convenient location. Such kind, helpful and courteous staff. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Beautiful landscaping and great up-keep.

The hotel is nice, our bedroom was clean, there is free parking, the staff are really friendly, but the breakfast is disappointing... There are not many choices of food and you leave hungry... Also, I don't know why, but our room was not cleaned one day...

It was relatively clean, but it was scary because the Police had an office in the hotel. The breakfast was 40 people fighting over one toaster and canned fruit. It's very outdated and old hotel -- really suitable for budget limited folks (particular men) who are looking for a place to sleep and that's it. This was no vacation paradise....

Hello Polo Brown, I do not feel we are laughable, but a budget friendly clean hotel. The police station is a great addition to the hotel and is welcomed by most. I never heard of fighting over our continental breakfast toaster either. We apologize for your unpleasant experience. Regards, Manager
