Holiday Rental House
The Dickinson Guest House is a quick walk or a free Uber ride to the nearby Expo-Guadalajara on a tree-lined street that is surrounded by all of the new luxury hotels in the city, and a park on both sides of the property. We are a cost-effective Hotel-Alternative for groups traveling together for the same convention or for friends or families coming as tourism. We have been in business for 12 years as of 2018. We chose this location because although it is only a short ride to the historical area of the city, where many tourists prefer to stay, we enjoy the quiet nights after a busy day. Our reviews reflect that on several review sites. The historical sites are great to see, but living right in the middle of that area was not right for us.

We are a cost-effective Hotel-Alternative for groups traveling together for the same convention or for friends or families coming as tourism. We have been in business for 12 years as of 2018. We chose this location because although it is only a short ride to the historical area of the city, where many tourists prefer to stay, we enjoy the quiet nights after a busy day. Our reviews reflect that on several review sites. The historical sites are great to see, but living right in the middle of that area was not right for us. We do get many families for weddings, graduations and often the Christmas Holidays to visit families living here. We also have many business travelers who choose a large private home over the pricy new hotels in this area. It is within walking distance of the huge Expo Center. Sharing a large house can save a lot of money to purchase gifts to take back home! While offering all of the same comforts to tourists, we have added the hotel amenities- like extremely fast wifi, without the extra charges that are often associated with these nice, but often pricier places to stay. The kitchen is open 24/7, and a washer and dryer 'service room' is on the second floor, and can be used with no additional charge by a guest staying 4 days or more. Maid service is scheduled for weekdays only, but can be added on for larger groups- if needed- for a small additional fee per day. We have a private and knowledgeable tourist guides if ordered in advance-that will chauffeur you around the city- as well as the artisan towns on the outskirts- not far away. The house is a large one, and the bedrooms can be arranged as needed per room-for the needs of those requesting a particular set up. The home is perfect for a group that knows each other well- or just likes the privacy of a nice bedroom in a home setting. We offer to shop for your arrival date so that you do not need to immediately go to the grocery store. Many plan to do exactly that, but are grateful that they have a few basics already in the house so they can rest up! It is a free service from us. There is only a small delivery fee of a few dollars for the driver. Many guests do not realize that if they are traveling from Sea level that we are a mile high city. This will make you want to rest up a bit and we encourage it. The house is all keyless security entry from the front security gate to all bedrooms. This has helped greatly from lost keys and for the security of guests who check in individually at different times - to make a seamless process of getting to your room without disturbing some of your friends that may have arrived earlier. It is also a privacy added entry for guests who want to enter and leave at will, without bothering their travel partners. Wherever you stay in this fun city-enjoy it's vitality and in this area especially enjoy the over 30 restaurants serving great tacos and local favorites to fine dining- for any pocketbook.

Interaction with guests
Depending on the size of the group that is renting, we try to give our guests as much privacy as they wish to have. Someone is always available by phone numbers listed on the kitchen whiteboard. We want you to be comfortable and feel at home. We know that we have achieved this-regardless of what booking site or direct phone call was used to book this large, comfortable home in Guadalajara, Mexico. The only big change that we have made over the years is the convenience of sending check in numbers to guests just before their arrival so that there is never any waiting I the event we can not meet you at the exact time you get here, due to traffic or a later flight.

Reviewed 2 May 2013

The house is big, confurtable, and very cozy. It makes you feel to be like home. A great location close to downtown. Colibris say "Hello" every morning, it's quiet, and very relaxing places. Epicurean would be the perfect adjective to describe the place.

About the neighbourhood
The area would be described as a nice middle-class neighborhood with parks, shopping malls, and 2 Supermarkets that are 3 blocks away. They deliver. It is a self-contained area if you wish to stay on the West side of the city. Several hotels have opened at a fast pace to keep up with the very large conventions just a few blocks away, and the restaurant scene ranges from freshly made tacos to French bistros and everything in between. You will find any cuisine you desire, all within walking distance. And if you are not in the mood to go out, everyone delivers. It is a short ride to downtown and to Plaza Andares in the other direction by taxi or you can our Uber account. Public transportation is two blocks from the house in 2 directions.
Getting around
Taxi, walking, or our Uber account will get you anywhere you desire-from Plaza Andares to the Historical district. We are in a self contained neighborhood with the best restaurants in the city-for any pocketbook. Most of them can be walked to day or evening. Two parks flank both sides of this large home, making it a very social experience if you want it-yet beyond these gates is your refuge to enjoy with whom you want to be with and the privacy that most groups want, after a busy day at the Expo Center or a day of shopping or site seeing.
