Hotel Casino Morelia

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is right on the plaza, with valet parking. For the price, it's a good value.

staff and services were excellent. I would highly recommended to all my friends and family.

Good location, great food, no AC, but the temperature didn't bother me. Most of the staff doesn't speak English, but the manager does. (Just a heads-up if that is important to anyone).

Let's face it, dollar for dollar the Hotel Casino is one of the best choices in Morelia. Located in "El Centro" directly across from the gorgeous cathedral that is a centerpiece of Michoacan and Morelia, you can't get a better location. Couple that with the fact that the sidewalk cafe and restaurant is hands-down the BEST place to eat in Morelia, you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. That being said, there are a FEW things that can make your stay more pleasant. FIRST -- DO NOT book a room in the FRONT of the hotel. The street is very noisy and you won't get any sleep. While the views are amazing, the noise is intolerable. Second, the hotel in general is a bit loud, not a lot of noise insulation. But the rooms in the newer "back" of the hotel offer new amenities and peaceful rest. The staff is good and helpful and the rooms themselves are very clean. If you want more posh then pay the price at stay at Cantera Diez. But you are literally next door to a hotel that charges 2-5x the price.

The hotel location is perfect! Right in the heart of Morelia (a World Heritage site) The staff were very helpful in spite of my very limited Spanish. They arranged a reasonably priced visit to El Rosario Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, with a very knowledgeable guide and driver. Definitely a hotel I will stay in again. Highly recommended.

I really liked the location, right in downtown Morelia. It was clean, comfortable bed it was just what i needed to relax before my next flight back home.

Hotel location is great, but WiFi didn't work. Only in lobby area. Router was not working well on 3rd floor. In all its a great hotel for sightseeing Morelia.

this hotel was previously owned by best western. it is now owned by turotel. something has changed. i've stayed here before, and for whatever reasons, the rooms seem a lot smaller. there is no A/C or heater. They provide either a ceiling fan or a portable fan. the other negative would be in the late evenings, the fresh smell of sewage. i'm not sure if it's coming from the hotel plumbing or from the streets. it is very strong.. the plus, you get 2 bottles of water everyday and the free internet/WiFi. you can even do your own laundry as the hotel has a washer and dryer. the biggest plus is that you are in the historical center of morelia. just beware of the awful smell. not sure if i will be staying here anymore.

Lets face it. I've stayed at the Virrey de Mendoza. I've stayed at Los Juaninos. I've stayed at Cantera Diaz and I've stayed at Case Grande. These are the best and most expensive hotels in the Centro Historico in Morelia --- an elegant 16th Century Colonial Mexican jewel. But this hotel can't be missed. While it's not fancy per se, the rooms are big, clean, nice, well appointed, and updated. The staff is VERY nice and EXTREMELY helpful. But remember --- you are in THEIR country and being respectful to that is important. Any Spanish you can speak or consideration you give to them is much appreciated. This hotel also has room service -- and that is something special because the restaurant and sidewalk cafe boasts one of the top, award-winning chef, Lucero Soto, serving up the best of Morelia --- an elegant town enriched in culture, both old and new. Don't miss out.

I reserved our room at the Best Western Casino hotel a month before we arrived and was put in a terrible interior room situated next to an air shaft that was above a loading dock. The room was incredibly warm and when I opened the window I received fryed food smells from the kitchen as well as noise from the loading dock outside of the kitchen. The noise continued until mid night and started again at 5:00 AM. The hotel was full and nothing could be done. When we requested two extra pillows we were told that there were no more available in the building. Needless to say we paid for a sleepless night. When I mentioned to the reception desk the next morning how horrible the room was and how bad the noise was there was no apology. I do have to say though that the staff was very friendly and extremely professional. They also have one of the best restaurants in Morelia with excellent service with a superb cuisine. Too bad that the hotel rooms can not match the same standards.

what a magnificent city Morelia is and this hotel is centered smack dab in the center of the action! the staff was more then accommodating and the hotel restaurant was delightful full of history and charm! I'll definitely be back soon thanks
