Average

Pros: Great location Good price Fairly clean Cons: You get what you pay for My heater unit works for 30 mins before it blows out cold air Walls are SUPER THIN. My door also had a large crack so you could hear everything outside Other notes: No ironing board Good thing I brought extra warm clothes during the winter due to super thin walls + my heater not working properly

A diamond in the rough.

I would NEVER have thought from passing through that this would be such a great little hotel! The reason I stayed here was to use as a studio to prepare for a model shoot I was doing that day. Just for us to get cleaned up and for my model's hair to get done. So I did not stay overnight. But I think it would've been fine. It's not the Hilton. And that's perfectly fine since I don't need the 5-star accommodations where I go. But for the price you pay, it's an excellent value. This feels more like a villa rather than a hotel. It has a very homey feel. There are tables & chairs located in areas where you can wait outside your room. The staff/owners are extremely nice. Staying in Carmel cost AT LEAST 2x as much, but then you are right in-between that and Monterrey. So that has it's advantages too. If the 'Villa' was a LITTLE more put together, I would've given this place a 5-Star in a big way. It's welcoming, comfortable, good location and an amazing deal. I will DEFINITELY consider staying here next time I'm in the area.

Basic but clean and neat

Clean and neat, reasonably quiet at night, reception businesslike and acceptable. Better than average low-flow shower head supplied by hotel (I always have pliers and my own spare to use if the hotel shower just drizzles).

Helpful staff in the office, Clean comfortable rooms. The marble floors were a bit chilly however. Thought it was good value for the price and would recommend it.

A Really Nice Place To Lay Your Head

This place is not far from all of the action, yes far enough so that you are not stuck in a noisy place. Very nice rooms for the price, and comfortable
