Always stay in this hotel. Everybody knows my name. Very good AC, upgraded food service and lots of pillows. Very good wifi all around the hotel, free of course. For 10 bucks more you can upgrade to a Junior Suite...worth every penny. Cheers

totally dissapointed with the difference on Qualty from the same company, did not justify the difference in price, the quality of the rooms and the food is abysmal, so please, do something to raise the quality of Calafia, next time I will go to a different hotel when Araiza is full

To start off the rates were great and affordable. As soon as we walked into our room it looked really clean and had a clean smell as well. The beds were comfortable, and the shower had enough nice hot water for my husband, our two kids and myself. The location is great!

I've stayed here twice in the past month after booking online. My recommendation is choose the "superior" room for a few dollars more. The basic rooms are not remodeled and the rooms are very run down. The "superior" rooms are remodeled and well worth the $7 or $8 they charge online for the upgrade. If you upgrade at the front...

First time at this hotel, rates were great. Hotel has renovated and the rooms were very nice and comfortable plus the location is ideal for walking to restaurants, clubs, convenience store, fast food, etc....staff was very friendly, professional, hospitable and efficient. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place to stay in this city.

Very good experience with the hotel. Very clean, great service, a lot of employees around the premises, making sure everything is fine. We had the noise that other guests complain about, a wedding at the park, but didn't bother us because AC was on and we got there late anyways. It looks like they just remodeled and did a great...

Where shall I begin? I'll begin with the good stuff. Great security, They were extremely polite and discreetly checked to make sure you were actually hotel guests or not. Great sense of security, no pun intended. The front desk employees were great as well. The room on the other hand... first thing I did was attempted to close the curtain,...

The hotel was fine, pool, gym, recently renoed 1950 style motor motel type place. Nice breakfast buffet - lots of options! But the real star was the onsite italian restaurant - there was also a steak house we did not try as after having the pizzas, pastas and grilled asparagus we didn't want to try anything else!
