Our second stay at this hotel and always find the staff very helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Great location within walking distance to shopping, eating and site seeing. Parking under the hotel. Always a line of taxis out front. Restaurant on premises with good food. Free wi-fi. Free breakfast is a simple fresh fruit, toast and coffee. Or you... More

We were very happy with the lovely large room at the Fray Junipero Serra. Staff were very helpful and courteous, the bathroom was excellent and parking underneath the hotel very convenient. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant is also very nice.

We stayed one night in Tepic and chose this hotel for its central location. All I can say is that everything was just fine. Location, restaurant, price of accommodation were great. I would recommend this hotel If staying in Tepic. If you drive into the city, they have an underground parking garage at the hotel.

Loved the location! They have a restaurant onsite and a coffee shop. Close to walk to many restaurants and shops. Very little English spoken here but they try their best. Wish the rooms had coffee makers but they do not. Free wi-fi which worked fine. They have a nice parking lot but we did not use so not know if... More

I was a little nervous about staying here as we usually stay with family. This ended up being a great decision. We had an excellent view of the Cathedral church and square FREE WiFi. Everything is within walking distance (museum, stores, pharmacies, etc.) Our room was clean. The staff was very attentive and very friendly. Having a restaurant on the... More

Stayed here for 1 night, reviews were accurate, this is a nice place in a great location. There is nothing outstanding or bad to say. Parking was a little lacking, didn't use the gym but seemed adequate. Beds were comfortable, AC worked great, good options for food on-site. Nice views of the city too. I would stay here again if...

We left Sayulita for Tepic due to Hurricane Patricia. The hotel was handling a huge influx of similar evacuees and did so with aplomb. The staff was helpful and gracious under stressful circumstances. The rooms are nice, clean and well-appointed and the restaurant was good. The location on the square was lovely.

This was our fourth (at least) stay at the Fray Junipero Sera. We like it because of its location (right on the central "Jardin" in front of the Cathedral), its cleanliness, its service, its dining, and its parking. Its wifi service is sporadic at times, but still within the acceptable range. It has a good exercise room, too! If you... More

Just returned from a short stay at Hotel Fray Junipero Serra in Tepic. Nice, very well located on the plaza; a stone's throw from the cathedral; good restaurant, clean room, prompt and very friendly service and free parking. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here many times enjoying the hotel, staff, and restaurant! We enjoy the view of the Plaza with its veried activities/performances. The sound has always ended at a very reasonable hour and never been a problem. The rooms are beautify clean and appointed, Internet has been strong, good hot water and quiet!
