This place is perfect for the budget traveler. We paid $10 a night for a clean room with really cool wood-frame beds and a gas heater that kept us warm through the cold nights (it gets cold up in the mountains). The window overlooked the main drag of the town, which was cool, and though it's next to the train tracks, we were there for 3 days and were never woken at night--I think trains only go through during the day. The community bath was clean and the shower was plenty warm. I think if you pay a few dollars more, you can get a private bath. We didn't care because we were the only people in the hotel at the time. The place is run by a family and everyone speaks English. They are very nice, and always around to help you out. There's free internet and the family will let you use their fantastic kitchen if you ever want to cook for yourself. This was my first time in Creel, and when I go back in a few months, I will stay here again.
One note: They offer a breakfast for a few dollars more. Don't go for it. You can find something better and cheaper around the town.
As far as reservations, Mario (the son) told me it's slow in winter and easy to get a room, but you should call ahead in the warmer months.
