They ripped my grandparents off because their room smelt awful and the AC didn't work and they had to switch and they charged about $450 CAD extra because they had to book the new room through the hotel and not Expedia. Then when they checked out my grandpa asked for his deposit back and they tried to tell him that...

We visited the Encino Hotel for 2 weeks recently, and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were very pleasant and helpful meeting our needs, In particular, Fernando, at the front desk, and Mari, our cleaning lady, were outstanding! Our only complaint would be the overall maintenance of the property is somewhat lacking. The staff are very quick to fix anything required...

We booked three nights here and were disgusted by the filth, noise, size and television that did not work. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in!! We booked 3 nights and only stayed one, leaving the next morning. We were not able to get a refund for the final two nights even though we checked out!! Shame on you...

We took a three night trip to Puerto Vallarta and wanted to try something other than an all inclusive resort. Because money was also a factor, we searched online for the cheapest hotels in the old town that also had decent reviews. Positive: -price. -the hotel is located a short distance away from the Malecon and beach. There were lots...

When we were first arrived and taken to our room, we were very disappointed! We asked for a room with a balcony. Instead we were in an interior room with a window that opened to the hallway so we could not leave it open. It was late so we made our way to the roof top restaurant. It had a...

Rooms are old and non comfortable. Hotel need a renovation. But location is really good, the pool on the roof is nice; wi-fi worked well. I booked this hotel because another inexpensive hotels in PV had already booked in my date. In generally it was ok for a budget hotel, but I am not sure that I will stay here...

This is a smaller mexican run hotel. I had booked it 4 months earlier in hopes of putting in a request for a quiet room on the back with a balcony on a higher floor. When we arrived we were given a lower floor facing the road with no balcony. When they showed us the room the people said it...

I've been to Mexico many, many times throughout the decades and always go with the more local, Mexican hotels. But Hotel Encino was truly the worst one I've ever stayed in. Felt like our room was in the middle of Hwy 200 and couldn't use the A/C to drown the noise, because that was even louder! Toilet and shower in...
