Absolutely fabulous!! the setting is beautiful, the rooms are big, beds comfortable...staff friendly and in great walking distance of the town center!! The grounds are surrounded by plants, the architecture is fantastic!
I could not get enough of this little bed and breakfast! There are only 8 rooms, as other reviewers have mentioned. We were a little skeptical at first on the price, but it was pretty close to what the internet said. I had my husband call ahead and see if we needed a reservation, but they assured us that a walk-in would be fine and business was slow during the weekdays. At the time of our trip that we stayed, which was April 15th and 16th of 2018, we paid $1,200 pesos, which was just about $32 a night for our stay. Incredible price was the number one factor while we were in Tequila. Also a fun little side note, it was the 488th anniversary of Tequila! So there were lots of things going on the day of the 15th. Fireworks, dances, cultural shows, the whole 9 yards. If you are planning a short stop in Tequila, the anniversary was a blast! The hotel was relatively easy to find from the bus station, but when we were in town we did get lost a couple of times! We walked everywhere and did not drive at all. Tequila was much bigger than we imagined, so it might be worth it to make sure you have access to Google Maps while out and about. And this is coming from two people with decent directional skills! As far as the distance from the hotel to the town center, it couldn't be any better. It was a 5 minute walk max. Also important because we had to take two showers a day from all of the walking and wanted to be close by whenever we needed a change of clothes. For our room in the hotel itself, it was great. It was nice and clean, had a safe in the closet, and was pretty modern-looking. The only part of the room that was older looking was the cool old-style carved wooded windows with an agave plant on it that opened up in two sections. You could either have the entire window open or just the top part. We had an AC unit, which was nice but the room stayed pretty cool without AC. I loved the layout of the little bathroom and the window of our shower opened up to give you a great view of the city with no other windows facing you for privacy. It opened up to the parking lot of the hotel I believe and the back sides of a couple of buildings. So I enjoyed a couple of showers with the window open! The courtyard was beautiful and the staff was great. At night time when everything was winding down (people wind down early in Mexico, surprisingly around 8-9pm) we would sit in the courtyard and use the WiFi. WiFi doesn't reach the rooms, so you can relax outside while you browse the web. The receptionist working during our stay had a cute older dog who hung out with us as well. If you have any allergies, this could be something to consider. The dog seemed to be part of the family and we saw him upstairs when the cleaning ladies were out, too but he was no bother to us. There was a mango tree that continuously dropped fruit on us when we were in the lobby, but that was fine. Free mango! Overall I would definitely stay here again!
We could have enjoyed multiple nights at this quaint hotel. The center courtyard was so pretty. The place was very clean, safe and welcoming. Amenities were basic but adequate. We would stay there again.
Very good value for the money. This hotel has a great location, parking and is very clean. The room was a good size, good shower and beautiful gardens. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
My wife and I spent two days/nights in charming Tequila (my office colleagues could not believe that there actually is a town with that name!). It is an official "pueblo magico" - "magic town" - just an hour from Guadalajara, well worth a visit and even more so if you have an "interest" in tequila, the distilled agave drink. The small hotel with just 8 rooms is located three blocks from the main street of town, and another 4 blocks from La Rojena, i.e. the Jose Cuervo tequila distillery, a must-visit. Built like a hacienda with a central courtyard surrounded by arched walkways, and plenty of greenery, it is very beautiful. Plenty of places to sit and contemplate, or use the free Wi-Fi (it not strong enough to reach the rooms). The rooms are simple but tastefully furnished. They have aircon that will cool the room even on very hot days - it was 95 F during our two days there. The hotel provides hot water and Nescafe for a quick morning caffeine fix. Unfortunately, the hotel does not offer breakfast although you can walk two blocks to a hotel by the same owner, Dulce Maria. If you're an early riser, forget that, because breakfast starts at 9:00 am, at least on weekends. Of course, there are plenty of street vendors and other places in town for breakfast - but you'll have to get dressed first. The hotel has a small refrigerator for common use at the reception, and the emphasis is on small. Also, for folks in need of ice cubes, there is no ice maker. You can walk the three blocks down to OXXO on the corner of the main street and buy a 5 lb bag of ice for 20 pesos (a buck; OXXO also sells wine and booze, and pre-made sandwiches - think, for breakfast). Store the ice bag overnight in the plastic bin in the fridge and you can enjoy a cold morning beverage. Next evening, "rinse and repeat." We needed help with private transport back to Guadalajara and the hotel found us a private driver who did the hour-long drive for 600 pesos (about 30 dollars). Be careful with trying to take an Uber from Guadalajara to Tequila, which we did - the Uber app quoted an estimated rate of less than 20 dollars, which is completely unrealistic as we found out. The driver took us there for 40 bucks, still a good value for an hour-long drive since he had to get back to Guadalajara later and likely without a passenger. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is good value for money even with the slight inconveniences (no breakfast, no ice, and no Wi-Fi in the rooms).
La Gran Senora is a great little hotel a couple blocks from the main street. They have 8 rooms, only 2 rooms with one bed the rest have 2 beds. The 2 bedded rooms are large. Mexican colonial style, lots of shady outdoor sitting areas, very comfortable. Plus is free secure parking in their lot behind the hotel. Staff were very helpful, Marcella was extremely helpful with tips on what to do in Tequila (besides the obvious). Already booked for another visit in April.
Cute little 8 room hotel in the heart of Tequila. Just a 5 minute walk into the town square. Absolutely beautiful courtyard area. The staff was warm and welcoming and very helpful. Very clean rooms and grounds
We spent a very enjoyable two days in Tequila and la Gran Señora was a welcome place after the hubbub of the fiesta. Everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was quite comfortable, and the garden courtyard is a lovely oasis. The room wasn't large, but certainly adequate. Wifi in the lobby and in the courtyard met our needs for travel planning. We arrived without a reservation and were welcomed. They also allowed us to keep our luggage in the room for a late checkout so we could do a tour before leaving. Service was polite, friendly and helpful, with sufficient English to get by. The hotel is four blocks off the Main Street and another two from the cathedral square, which we found to be an easy walk and far enough from the commotion to be peaceful. Caveat - when fireworks are going off at 3 in the morning, nowhere in town is quiet! Highly recommend la Gran Senora.
We stayed in Tequila two years in a row for one night each year. We really enjoy Tequila so we came for two nights this year, to the same hotel as last year. We had a different room this time, a little smaller, still it was nice and well appointed and we enjoyed the stay. The staff are very helpful and will do anything you need. Comfortable beds, large bathrooms and showers with fast and lots of hot water. The dogs still live near by, perhaps not as many as last year and they don't bark all night, only for a couple of hours. You must pay attention as you walk around, the hotel has the famous Mexican trait of varying floor heights which jar aging Canadian spines. It is about a six block walk to the town square, which worked very well for us, and if it doesn't, cabs are cheap. We will go back again in 2017, I am sure.
It is not a luxurious hotel but it is very charming, the people are friendly and it is cheap compare to other hotels on the area. The place is about two or three blocks from the main plaza, there are little shops around to get drinks and sodas. Very convenient to walk around Tequila. Is a small place and don't provide breakfast, but they have complimentary instant coffee and hot water. Good size rooms and bathrooms, they vary according to the beds, queen size or two double beds. The price is perfect, they even gave us a discount, we need two single bedrooms and they just had one single and one double, even when the double was a little more, they offer to give it to us for the same price as the single. They have parking and you really don't need a car for exploring tequila, we had a car and left it there for the entire trip without even worrying. The bed was comfortable and the only sound that I heard was a rooster in the morning. The only problem is the Wifi, we couldn't get any signal at the rooms but it worked perfectly at the loby.
