After checking out 4 places in Montezuma, we settled on the Aurora. It's a really comfortable budget accommodation and the staff are super friendly and helpful. We paid $45 per night, which I believe is the maximum price for 2 people. For this price we had an upstairs (second floor) room with A/C, a nice balcony, and a bathroom with hot and cold water in the shower (good water pressure!) and, as seems to be the norm, only cold water in the sink. Oh, and a tiny little tv.
The only downside was that the room lacked charm. It sort of felt like a college dorm room or maybe a summer camp cabin. The balcony, complete with two hammocks, a table with two chairs, and flower covered vines was very nice. There were a couple of other places in town for similar or higher rates (up to $75) that were really beautiful, but either lacked A/C or water pressure, etc.
The place across the street was really beautiful, but the water barely trickled out of the shower and I felt like the woman running the place was giving me the run-around on the room rates. But that is a story for another review….
