The location just 2 blocks from the Malecon is great and normally the price is reasonable, anywhere from $30 to $50. Be sure to ask for a room in the back away from the street that overlooks the bridge. Very outdated and no wifi except the lobby.

Don't expect too much. This is a budget hotel. The rooms are clean and sanitary. They have great maid service. The rooms can be noisy depending on the location in the building but we put the air-conditioning on and set it to recycle the air as we were only wanting the sound to drown out the street noise. Corridor noise...

We have stayed at hotel Encino a couple times. It is a very traditional Mexican hotel 1 block from the beach, and short walking distance to the Malecon. The rooms were fairly basic, our room had a/c and tv. The bathroom was spacious enough, clean, well maintained. Shower only,no tubs. Love love love the view from small rooftop area and...

We only stayed one night in January 2017 but probably I would not stay again. Our room did not face the street so we did not have much noise from the street level. We did experience someone knocking loudly and for quite some time on a nearby room's door after midnight. We were unable to use the AC because you...

We had a good time here ! Our room was clean and it faced the river! Loved looking out at the iguanas. We loved the pool area and the roof top restaurant! The hotel is far from fancy but if you want to experience Mexico like a local stay here! The location is great!! I would stay here again!

After having a 6 months reservations for our queen bed we checked in New Year's Eve and got 2 twin beds. Note they pulled this switch after charging us for our 2 weeks stay. They moved us to a double bed room the next day. No wash cloths for the room. You have to ask for them. No ice makers...

I should have expected this, but you never know how holidays are celebrated in different countries. The hotel is a quaint place in the downtown area. The rooms are simple and the building is old. Air Conditioning worked well and the interior lights of the hotel turned off at 2:30am. The only issue we had is the security of the...

This is a great place to stay if you are only gonna use this place to sleep, shower and keep your stuff while you are out and about. This is not a five star place. Again, this is a place to crash after a night of partying. Rooms are spartan, but clean. This is not a resort, this is an...
