This used to be a good hotel, but it has gotten bad. Check-in was a mess. Took them 35 minutes to find our reservation and they were grumpy with us. The room was shabby, the shower was gross with just a trickle of water. Staff were rude. Then they demanded extra money for the breakfast that was supposed to be included.

Been driving for HOURS on the autopista, and was headed for Jalisco. Its was immediatly at the off ramp into the beginning in Culiaca'n. Only $450pesos. NO SMOKING HOTEL! had to "go outside". However the showr was caked withy black mold around the corners, The A/c no se funciona. IT DIDN'T WORK! No restaurant. No in room coffee. Crummy furnishings, slept like hell. No pool. But I wasn't PLANNING on 'visdting' culiaca'n. Next time: if called for: maybe CITY EXPRESS. Was SO GLAD to bone-out of there before their "coffee service" at 6:30. wasn't far or Long till I found an OXXO (me'xico's 7-11) where I could get REAL coffee, and Jugo De Naranja (orange Juice) Basically in a word; "EW!" don't stay here, if you respect yourself!

We stayed in this hotel twice in 2 weeks. Once on the way to the US and once on the way back. On the first stop we didn't have any water in the shower so had to leave for our 12 hour drive unshowered. Thinking it was just 'one of those things' we stayed there again on the way back. This time there wasn't any hot water. Another day of travel without a shower. Oh yeah, the free coffee was cold too. Never again.

We pulled into this hotel late at night on our way to Mazatlan and we were pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The staff was very accommodating even though it was fairly late. There was good security and excellent air conditioning which is extremely important in Sinaloa. Everyone was happy and content with the amenities, service and price.

This hotel is part of a chain. It is modern, clean, simple, and functional. The rooms are comfortable. It appears to be well-known among business travelers. The dining room is adequate, but not exceptional. The atmosphere is calm, friendly, and informal. Highly recommended. The hotel is easily accessible from Highway 15.

I pulled into this hotel just after dark having driven down from Nogales Arizona. I was tired and hungry and traveling alone. The desk clerk was extremely helpful. He gave me a room just off the lobby because I was alone and they sent the security guard out to the parking with me when I moved my vehicle from the front door to the parking lot. The parking lot was at the side of the hotel and I would have been just fine on my own but it was nice that they cared enough to send him with me. The room was super clean and the linens were new and in great shape. I loved the sort of middle eastern design of the furniture that is made of marble and iron and the beautiful Persian carpets on the walls in the room and the hallways were really special. The bed was a king and super comfortable and the bathroom was huge with a giant corner shower with a strong shower head and a built in wall seat - perfect for foot care in the shower. The wifi in the room was strong enough that I had no trouble calling in to my boyfriend with Magic Jack to let him know I was safe and sound and off the highway for the night. The hotel had a nice little restaurant in the lobby where I had dinner and breakfast. They have a three course dinner special for about 90 pesos that was more than I could eat. I would stay here again and we stayed at one of their hotels in Tepic in June and had exactly the same great experience.
