“Very Bad... Huge Disappointment!!”
Reviewed March 2, 2009

We booked this hotel thru "Discovery Mexico".The photos they had were 20 years old! We arrived @ the hotel in the early morning after a 14 hour bus ride, expecting the room that we saw in the photo, we got "CRAP" There was mold all around the bathroom, no hot water, very dirty overall, window screen was falling out, & it was not very secure! We had trouble also with getting some kind of reciept! They had our reservation but we still had to haul out our computer, go next door (it was closed) so we had to try to find another place that made copies( it was 7:30 in the morning) & return to the hotel with a copy of our reservation?!! It was all very unfriendly! Needless to say, we only stayed there for 4 HOURS!! Big hassle & they just didn't seem to care or want to care! Stay far away from Zihuatanejo Centro!! The pool was also very, very dirty & murky!!

The hotel was not very clean. The towels were tiny. The showers were cold. Out of 4 days, I got one lukewarm shower at best. The staff was ok, the parking attendant was very friendly, but then followed us several blocks trying to mooch a tip when we carried all of our bags ourselves. Parking is very limited. When we asked for a receipt at the end, we were told, "No, I'm sorry." We had to get a manager, and he had to run into some backroom to photocopy for us the webpage that we had printed and bought. So they really never supplied any kind of receipt.
The good thing was location. Very short walk to the beach, and close to a lot of downtown restuarants and bars. I wouldn't stay there again. The Zihua beach is not that great, and we ended up driving everyday to a different beach anyway. If I knew we'd be driving, I would have picked a nicer hotel, farther from the beach.

We booked our room after reading a lonely planet review. The hotel lost our reservation, the elevator was broken, the A/C worked some of the time and the room wasn't very clean. We have both done alot of traveling and don't mind getting in there with the locals, but this was just a disappointment. We switch our hotel after two nights.

If you desire a low cost centrally located hotel with pool, restaurant, Air conditioned, quiet & secure this property may be to your liking. I have stayed there many times. It is similar to Motel 6 in the states.
Great for fishermen, only about 5 blocks to the pier and many restaurants within 2 blocks. No luxury but clean and comfortable.
