I had to go ask for towels because there weren’t any in the room, and I had to pay for a water.

Affordable for the area but uncomfortable
Uncomfortable beds and overall rough accommodations but you get what you pay for - this was convenient to the tourist spots, nice that parking was included, and worked for a very short stay. The staff were all very nice and helpful, but I would not return to this hotel. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for comfort.

Good price for what they offer.
It is what it is based on what you pay for is what you get the hotel is older and much harder to keep up with being an older hotel but the sheets were clean the towels were clean and it served it’s purpose for us to stay there overnight with no bugs like other five star hotels that I’ve stayed at where you sometimes encounter bedbugs or other type of rodents.

Great Location, but dirty...
The location of the hotel is great, it is walking distance of the Catherdal and shopping. Staff were polite and attentive. However, the hotel is in horrible condition. The rooms were dirty, hair was found on the sheets and cockroaches were crawling on the pillows. As mentioned before the location is great, yet was disappointed how unkempt the rooms were.

The older gentleman at the front desk was very RUDE!!! He did not want to accept my confirmation # that I had written on paper. I told him my phone had died and I could not show him the reservation on the app. He said he could not give me a room without proper confirmation. I explained that my phone had been low on power when I used the app to make the reservation so I wrote down the confirmation # on a piece of paper. We had reserved 2 rooms and they were sold out and I argued and he finally said ok. It was embarrassing to be at the front desk arguing over a confirmed reservation. I gave him my name and he found the 2 reservations!! The room was dirty, hairs in the bathtub, the curtains were torn and hanging open. The air conditioner was loud. The tub had mold on the caulking. We were only given 2 old, torn towels. The furniture was stained. Will not stay there again.

Noisy and it took forever to get our dinner in the dining room. 45 minutes to get our first dinner and 1 hour 15 minutes to get our last dinner. There was five of us.

Great location and great price, but a dive.
Location: fantastic. Two blocks from the Theater and 3 from the cathedral. Cleanliness: It's a more run-down hotel. Little spots of mold in the bathrooms, etc. Service: We had to go ask for towels because our room didn't have any. Twice. They were really accommodating at the front desk, but it made me wonder why they didn't just put towels in the rooms in the first place (it seemed like that happened a lot) Beds: Hard. I can sleep on anything horizontal so it was fine, but they weren't particularly comfortable. Sheets: Tom Haverford would be ashamed. About the cheapest sheets you can get. Food: I didn't get the meals, but they were available for purchase. WiFI: Worked great for what we needed. Overall: It was a perfectly fine stay because of the location and price. If I went to Guadalajara again, I'd probably choose a different location, but if this were the only one available, I'd be fine here again.
