Loved the room, but read the “small print”
I loved the location, room, pool, and adjoining restaurant. Always read the “Small Print” section at any listing: This property does not allow outside guests in the guest rooms and there is no elevator.

A couple day layover in PV
Great location - only a block off the Malacon. Great breakfast and good prices
Denise, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good stay
What we liked most about this hotel is the service and the people that work there. Very nice! The hotel was also very clean! The hotel room was pretty small, no fridge or microwave & the wi-fi wasn’t very good either. Aside from that though, we did enjoy our stay. This hotel is very central & the beach is literally across the street!
Flor, us5 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location and good value
Great location near the Malecon in downtown PV. Easy walk to restaurants, shops, bars, etc. Very clean and comfortable. Hotel restaurant is good also for breakfast or lunch. Pool is not really useable as it is more of a water feature for the restaurant than a pool. Hotel is a good value.

Hope to go back!
The location was perfect for a visit to Centro. The hotel is charming, old Mexico. The front desk staff the best. They answered all of my many questions.
Mary, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good stay
Room was comfortable, location was great and drinks were good at the bar. Only complaint is that you can't bring outside guests to your rooms so be aware of this.
RASHAUN D, us3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good place no parking
Its very good place to stay the only bad thing is no parking place and you have to park at the street or pay expense park across the street
Gamaliel, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Very noisy on road side at night. Gentlemen at checkin was very professional, polite and informative. Only had little contact with him but was impressed by his manors.
John, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
A good choice for a reasonably-priced PV hotel.
Very centrally located and a good value for the price. A bit run-down and the rooms are very small. Front-desk people are exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the restaurant right downstairs is very convenient and attractive.
