Myself, my partner and two friends came to stay at Encino for twelve days. We booked on booking.com and did not receive the room we had paid for. It did not have a balcony or even a window. The "window" was out into the hallway and we were pushed back into a tiny corner. The room was extremely small, the...

Clean room, dated as hotel has not been updated like many in the area but that was expected. Hotel overall was very clean, friendly, secure and within walking distance of many fine family restaurants and easy walk to many others across the river. I would stay there again. Nice sitting area on top floor with a pool and bar restaurant...

The location just 2 blocks from the Malecon is great and normally the price is reasonable, anywhere from $30 to $50. Be sure to ask for a room in the back away from the street that overlooks the bridge. Very outdated and no wifi except the lobby.

Don't expect too much. This is a budget hotel. The rooms are clean and sanitary. They have great maid service. The rooms can be noisy depending on the location in the building but we put the air-conditioning on and set it to recycle the air as we were only wanting the sound to drown out the street noise. Corridor noise...

We have stayed at hotel Encino a couple times. It is a very traditional Mexican hotel 1 block from the beach, and short walking distance to the Malecon. The rooms were fairly basic, our room had a/c and tv. The bathroom was spacious enough, clean, well maintained. Shower only,no tubs. Love love love the view from small rooftop area and...

We only stayed one night in January 2017 but probably I would not stay again. Our room did not face the street so we did not have much noise from the street level. We did experience someone knocking loudly and for quite some time on a nearby room's door after midnight. We were unable to use the AC because you...

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...
