We had a good time here ! Our room was clean and it faced the river! Loved looking out at the iguanas. We loved the pool area and the roof top restaurant! The hotel is far from fancy but if you want to experience Mexico like a local stay here! The location is great!! I would stay here again!

After having a 6 months reservations for our queen bed we checked in New Year's Eve and got 2 twin beds. Note they pulled this switch after charging us for our 2 weeks stay. They moved us to a double bed room the next day. No wash cloths for the room. You have to ask for them. No ice makers...

I should have expected this, but you never know how holidays are celebrated in different countries. The hotel is a quaint place in the downtown area. The rooms are simple and the building is old. Air Conditioning worked well and the interior lights of the hotel turned off at 2:30am. The only issue we had is the security of the...

This is a great place to stay if you are only gonna use this place to sleep, shower and keep your stuff while you are out and about. This is not a five star place. Again, this is a place to crash after a night of partying. Rooms are spartan, but clean. This is not a resort, this is an...

Great for the price. The location, near one of the major bus routes, can be noisy due to the cars and pedestrians, not to mention the popular bar on the top floor. On the other hand, it's a lovely old building. You're very close to the Malecon, and all of downtown, including the fruit market on the other side of...

I booked this hotel over a month a month ago. It looked OK, but when I arrived there it was a shock. Check-in in dim light by a not-welcoming receptionist. My mother and auntie felt unsafe because of the reiterating signs warning about leaving valuables in the room. The bellboy was very helpful and kind. As we entered the room,...

Expensive for what you get for. Internet access was horrible! AC unit old and noisy, Bed was hard and noisy. Front staff was too overwhelmed and asked me to call back when I had questions about the services they offered. Traveled with kids and they were not to happy, especially with TV which was so small.

If you want a clean, centrally located hotel, for a great price the Encino is perfect. I had been in a couple of the rooms before since one of my friends had stayed there so I knew what to expect. My room was cleaned everyday, the AC worked (although it was sometimes loud), and the internet was strong in my...

A no frills, very basic hotel. Great location, easy walking distance to the malecon and lots of shopping, restaurants, etc. I had to change rooms twice due to non-working air conditioning. Very spotty internet service; I usually could not connect from my room, I needed to go out into the hallway. Hotel was clean, however quite shabby. I was not...
