“Nice hotel but we weren't made to feel welcome.”
Reviewed 31 December 2007

Really sweet authentic Mexican rooms, clean and nicely decorated we were very happy with them. It was just a shame we were made to feel like an inconvenience. I had emailed them with our flight and bus details along with out ETA and we arrived as arranged about 10pm. The person behind the desk checked us in and handed us our key without one word or a smile. We were then left to find our room on our own, eventually we worked out the section it was in that it was upstairs and got our bags in and sorted. We went down to the restaurant which seemed to be waiting for us and had a nice meal, I wouldn't be surprised if we weren't the only people staying there. We went back to our room to drop off our bag and go for a walk and look around the town. However in the less than 5 minutes it took us to do that we found we had been locked in the hotel grounds and all lights had been turned off! So we had no choice but to go to bed! We really felt they would rather we had not come. The one piece of info we could have done with (and they could have let us know by email) is that when you get off the bus from Los Mochis you don't need a taxi to get to the hotel as it is less than one blocks walk!

I've stayed here literally a dozen times over the past three years. VERY nice folks. They go out of their way to take care of you.

It's not the Four Seasons (In El Fuerte?), but it's very nice, clean, and reasonably priced. Decent food, too. The only down side is the the service in the restaurant is sometimes a bit slow. Still, it's well worth a visit.

We are a tour organizing company that uses Hotel La Choza often. We have never had any problem with cleanliness nor any inconveniences in using the hotel.
Our customers have always been satisifiied with the hotel and the services provided.
El Fuerte is in a tropical aerea, next to a wide river where it 's difficult not to find any insects; however they are controlled at the Hotel.

We had two rooms #20 & #21. Two of us had bites and were later confirmed as being bed bugs. Use caution.

We took the Copper Canyon trip in March of 2005 and were driving through Mexico at the time. I was concerned about leaving our vehicle while we were on the train. We found a new hotel in El Fuerte named La Choya. It is completely remodeled and has a nice restaurant, clean rooms and priced reasonably. The best part is that one can leave their vehicle in the locked courtyard while traveling thru the canyon. The only condition is that you stay with them before and after the trip. No problem as you leave early in the morning and come back rather late at night and would not want to head out at that time.
