Good value for your travel dollar.
Basic lodging with everthing you need to enjoy the surrounding area. Great location, decent breakfast, and nice pool. Very clean. Any issues were small and taken care of immediately. Front desk staff were very helpful. Good value.

Hotel Doralba Inn, Merida
Did not like it.
I was disappointed with it, it could've looked nicer if they just took down all the tacky decor- pictures of Frida Kahlo, cheap Christmas decorations. The tile floor is beautiful and really could look so much classier. The pool is nice looking. The room looked very low class, just not nice fixtures nor finishes. I ended up staying with my sister in a much nicer hotel, I was actually embarrassed to stay there.
