This is simply an excellent hotel. The location can't be beat, and my window overlooked the town plaza, and I could even open it. The room was bright, clean had a nice TV and (to my joy) a card with TV listings. The beds were comfortable, and you could do surgery in the bathroom. If i ever go back to... More

Our room was big with a comfortable bed, a view of the center of Centro Historico and Cathedral, we had breakfast and dinner at their restaurant and the food was very good and decent prices. The only thing we didnt like was that they do not have a coffemaker in the rooms.

We held an event at the Fray Junipero and also stayed the night. Personnel was welcoming and professional - always ready to serve with a smile. We highly recommend this hotel, not only for it's accommodations, but for it's perfect location in the center of Tepic.

We were very happy with the lovely large room at the Fray Junipero Serra. Staff were very helpful and courteous, the bathroom was excellent and parking underneath the hotel very convenient. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant is also very nice.

We stayed one night in Tepic and chose this hotel for its central location. All I can say is that everything was just fine. Location, restaurant, price of accommodation were great. I would recommend this hotel If staying in Tepic. If you drive into the city, they have an underground parking garage at the hotel.

Loved the location! They have a restaurant onsite and a coffee shop. Close to walk to many restaurants and shops. Very little English spoken here but they try their best.

We left Sayulita for Tepic due to Hurricane Patricia. The hotel was handling a huge influx of similar evacuees and did so with aplomb. The staff was helpful and gracious under stressful circumstances. The rooms are nice, clean and well-appointed and the restaurant was good. The location on the square was lovely.
