“Decent and Clean”
Reviewed February 3, 2011

We stayed three nights at this hotel in Tehuantepec, and found it pleasant. The room we chose was at the top of the three flights of stairs - I run, so that didn't phase me, but your mileage may vary. That afforded us a great view from our room, and a fresh breeze.

The room is medium-sized, and functional. The beds were comfortable, and the room featured hot water. The place was safe, with a person in reception 24h. Although they had wireless Internet, connection was spotty the time we were there.

The staff was nice. The evening person was a bit sullen, but during the day, the girls at reception were friendly.

About Tehuantepec: We didn't enjoy the city as much as the guide led us to believe. It's a tiny town, with very few outstanding food options. (Very little comida corridas in the afternoon, and the ones we tried were sub-par.) There are taco stands at night, which are decent, and a lot of fresh produce around the market, right next to the zocalo, one block from Hotel Oasis. People were friendly, but less so than in other small towns in Mexico. And yes, you do get a sense of the matriarchal roots of this area of the country, and it makes for an interesting time.

The best place I found for a late evening light dinner is the parking lot right across from Hotel Oasis, where a family makes killer tlayudas (grilled, oversized tortillas with meat and frijoles.) There are two stands there; I suspect they're equivalent, but we tried the leftmost one when facing the parking lot from the hotel.
