Got switched at the last minute
The Ratings above were for the Old Town B&B. The palenque people moved me to another hotel the day that I arrived. Claimed it was due to construction noise. The Old Town B&B was very nice and I will stay there again when I return.....

Great place and staff
Casa Palenque was a great choice, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. They were always there to assist us, and even helped us book day trips during the days. The place is just like the pictures. The only down side is that there is a construction site right next door, and we were awake every day by 7-8am.

Nice place to stay
Staff was great. Area was quiet and quaint. Hotel room itself wasn't the best, but you get what you pay for. Although the price was low and the location was good, the hotel room wasn't the best. I know you are there to sleep and shower but it doesn't mean that the room should have mold in the bathroom and an inch of muck on the ceiling fan. Oh yea, we were infested with termites too. I expect certain things based on where I am in relation to what country I'm in. I guess my expectations were a little too high. I would still recommend this hotel. Oh yea, be very careful of the water. I got sick. Got some sort of bacteria. I don't know if it was at the hotel or from one of the many restaurants we visited. We did drink bottled water but make sure you brush your teeth with bottled water and when you are in the shower. refrain from rinsing your mouth.

Not so good.
We payed for a superior room and just got a standard room. The room was small, had some areas around corners and inside the closet that were dirty and also the pillows had a strange smell. For two people trying to sleep on a double bed was difficult. Then after I complained they changed us to a superior room that was by far better. Other aspect and it has nothing to do with the hotel is that there is a construction next to the hotel, so after 7:00 AM nobody can sleep due to all the noise. Need to say that breakfast was good, but in my opinion this hotel needs to be updated. The carpets look dirty, the windows don't have a blackout curtains, and because of the doors being very flimsy you do not feel secure in this hotel. I definitely do not recommend it.
