I was there with my mom, sisters and husband and spent one week in May! We were satisfied with the price, but the hotel didnt have a clean pool, nor good ac so my husband complained all the time we were there which was only at night, mostly. Other than that service was good!

This is my 3rd stay at El Tapatio. It is a one night stopover on our way to Costa Rica. In its heyday, this hotel was the most luxurious in the city of Guadalajara. The views are spectacular, the rooms spacious but a little faded. Our room is $36 USD. It is a great place to stay.

My husband had stayed here years ago and has always wanted to take me. The pictures truly need to be updated. The rooms are old and the smell is bad. The air conditioning doesn't work well, asked 2 times to have checked and no one came. The pool was dirty, would not even get in it. They really need some... More

The potential for this place is why I gave it 2 stars. The room smelled like mold it was old and the bed made me want to sleep on the floor. This could be a really nice place if they fixed it up. Also, it was unbelievable I think the receptionist has a deal set up with the local taxi... More

Staying at the Tapatio is an experience. A hotel that has its glory days behind, El tapatio is part of Guadalajara's history. It's dated infrastructure, combined with an unambitious management have produced as a result a hotel that is as surrealist as Mexico. If you need a business like experience, stay in a modern business hotel; if you are looking... More

I stayed at this hotel 20 years ago and it was nice. I went back this past June to plan a meeting for our organization and asked to see the guest rooms. They showed me two rooms, which were nice and clean. I would later learn that these two rooms had been renovated and were the show rooms. Not the... More
