Rincon de Guayabitos, Mexico
Reviewed yesterday NEW

we reserved 2 rooms and the receptionist accepted my request that we be given the best price offered instead of the one given during the phone reservation. She did just that. We were very please with the room, service, lcentral ocation, cleanliness, restaurant and the friendliness of the staff. we highly recommend this hotel for those who stay in Tepic.

Friendly staff and great Location. The room was very clean and spacious. There is so much to do around here and everything is close. The front desk took care of us. There is a good coffee shop ice cream shop and room service 24/7 you can't go wrong with that!

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...

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 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.
