Recent guest reviews

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate my birthday. We were arriving @ hotel @ 8 AM following an all night bus ride from México City. The hotel kindly checked us into a room upon our arrival, and we were only asking that they store our luggage for the day prior to check-in. Things only got better from there. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet, and tastefully furnished. The hotel provided free full breakfast, including cooked options. There is a perfectly respectful gym also, open early AM, and is open all day. Last, the desk personnel were awesome. We asked them for directions to nail salon, and the following day when we were checking out and the gentleman noticed my nails, he asked me about my experience there. We chose to stay in the Centro historico area, and this was an all- around good choice. We will certainly be back.

Hotel Fray Juniper Serra was a great place to stay while visiting Tepic. The price was right, a bargain including breakfast. It’s on the zocalo, across from the main cathedral. All the museums in town and many restaurants are within blocks. Good workout room. Only negatives are the Church bells into morning and the street musicians in the evening; ear plugs help.

Underground parking, rooms were clean and fairly spacious. Did not have a refrigerator which would have been nice. Restaurant on first floor had a good menu, good food with reasonable prices. Town square and lovely old church located right at the hotel.

Located in the central area of Tepic. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel has a nice restaurant and a coffee shop with treats. Continental breakfast is included with pastries, fruit, to order eggs, and cereal. The service is excellent and the rooms are comfortable. Taxi line right outside the hotel. They have secured underground parking if you have a car. Enjoy!!

The place is conveniently located in the heart of the city with walking access to everything. Taxi cabs are available outside the hotel at all times. I have stayed at the hotel many times and had many good experiences; however, I would like to recommend to the hotel staff a better enforcement of the hotel's rules. They book rooms to groups of young guests that sometimes don't really care about other guests. On my last stay a group of people stayed having having a party very loud and smoking until 4:00am, it took a couple of calls to the night staff to rein them in.

The facilities are good and so it's the service. The one thing that drags it down is the location. There is a church across the street that rings it's bells at 7 and 8 AM!! Everyday!! including weekends!! If you don't mind, you will like the hotel, but for me I don't like to be waken up everyday with bells!! Other than is pretty good,but the noise makes a difference in the quality and comfort.

we reserved 2 rooms and the receptionist accepted my request that we be given the best price offered instead of the one given during the phone reservation. She did just that. We were very please with the room, service, lcentral ocation, cleanliness, restaurant and the friendliness of the staff. we highly recommend this hotel for those who stay in Tepic.

Friendly staff and great Location. The room was very clean and spacious. There is so much to do around here and everything is close. The front desk took care of us. There is a good coffee shop ice cream shop and room service 24/7 you can't go wrong with that!

I recently stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It's a nice hotel,staff is very friendly and it's located in the heart of Tepic. The stay includes a continental breakfast which is really good with fresh squeezed orange juice,coffee,sweet Mexican bread,fresh fruit,etc. My room was spacious,very clean and with a big window facing the main plaza. On my next visit to Tepic I will definitely stay in this hotel.

This is simply an excellent hotel. The location can't be beat, and my window overlooked the town plaza, and I could even open it. The room was bright, clean had a nice TV and (to my joy) a card with TV listings. The beds were comfortable, and you could do surgery in the bathroom. If i ever go back to Tepic, that's where I am staying.
