“Not a resort - Perfect location, comfy and very clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I stayed a week in March 2013. Enjoyed my stay very much.

I noticed a couple of comments on the hot water situation. I found that before you step into the shower let the hot water run for about 5 minutes and you've got it. No big problem.

It is close to the Malecon and all the best authentic Mexican food in all of Puerto Vallarta. I walked an average of 2-3 miles a day and checked out every little food place. The street taco stands serve some of the best tacos I've ever tasted and for only 15 or so pesos.

The staff at the motel is exceptional and they keep the rooms perfectly clean. I'll for sure stay there again with no hesitation.

Jerry

Good news - the place is rather peaceful, has no night club attached etc. The only noise issues are with the traffic (get the room looking inside) and cathedral bells.
Our rooms were moderately sized, let's say "functional". I rather dislike a sink in the shower arrangement, so you can't really use the sink after taking a shower. Oh, and it takes a while for hot water to reach higher floors. There are not markings on the taps, all you can do is experiment with them - do wait for about 5 minutes.
Beware of low ceilings on the stairs - easy to hit your head.
There is no cooked breakfast which is fine; there are various eateries around. Margarita's was pretty good for breakfast.
All rooms are named and decorated according to Mexican songs. I got "El Rei" which was great. My friend had "Adelita" which was all pink and with dolls.
Staff was moderately friendly, but language problems did not allow us to use them as a source of local information

We stayed 3 nights, great down town accommodation right in the heart of down town. Very clean and great staff. Low noise level, day and night.
Free coffee every morning. Will definitely stay there again

We were disappointed in the room mostly. The bathroom had no hot water, and the cold water barely trickled out. We had to remove the shower head to get wet in the shower. The sink and only mirror was in the shower! (Not kidding). The safe did not work. Apparently none of the rooms in our portion of the building had a safe that worked. The coffee in the morning was cold, and the " beach club" is about a mile away". This is the first time we have felt the need to review a hotel, and we have been coming to PV for the last 12 years.

This hotel for the money is one great place. You get asked what type of pillow,soap,and lotion flavor u would like for your time there. Even if u only need a place for one nite or 8 like me u will enjoy it. Very friendly staff they are there to help u any way that u need. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. In the mornings the coffee and snacks are great. The free wifi and the 2 computers makes keeping up with things at home easy. As with all the other people that write the location of this hotel is great. Just minutes from everything, food, shopping, bus rides,beach,malacon. Carlos the main man is great u need anything he is usually there. U only need to ask once and u get extra towells or whatever u need.I highly recommend this hotel just remember u are in a great town and enjoy your stay.This is my 2nd time at this hotel. Doug (Utah) P.S. snowing here wish I was back in Vallarta

Room Tip: all the rooms are about the same very good.

I stayed here last year. Stayed here this year, and will probably stay here next year. The beach is only two blocks away, the church is 3 blocks away, many restaurants steps away, the market, etc. The only thing I might add is more lighting(brighter). I would recommend this hotel.

We chose this hotel for the location, close to everything. It was very clean and comfortable as well. We would recommend this hotel to others. Check out the rooftop patio, especially nice in the morning. The staff was friendly and helpful.
