According to the most recent Let´s Go! Guide, this place was recommended at the top of the list for budget accomodations. Not anymore. The guide listed the place as having well equipped kitchennettes in every room, yet the only thing it had in ours (which happened to be the best room in the joint at 260 pesos) was a hood fan for where a stove used to be and a sink. The bed creaked and groaned and sunk in the middle, the hot water was non existant and our shower head fell off as soon as we turned the shower on! Also, the sink in the bathroom was crawling with little bugs. We had intended to stay 2 nights but stayed only one, upgrading to the slightly more expensive Hotel Junipero.
It wasn´t all bad, though. They have TVs in the room with colour and cable, and the neighborhood is very quiet, the location convenient and the Senora was very sweet. However, the room sucked. If you really want the best price in Loreto this is the place, but stick to a smaller room and don´t expect a hot shower!
