Stayed overnight here before and after our trip to to Batopilas. Our canyon tour was done with the 3 Amigos tour company which had been arranged through The California Native as part of our overall Copper Canyon trip. The hotel has a very central location making it handy for walking to most of the attractions in Creel. Very nice rooms and a decent restaurant although we only ate breakfast here and the menu was fairly limited. Other than being a safe comfortable central location it does not have a lot else going for it but is certainly a good stop over place for a trip down into the canyon.

The hotel is an example of a well-run operation. I give it 3 1/2 stars. With better food, it would be a solid 4 1/2 stars. The accommodations and service were excellent. The food was just alright. Thanks to the hotel management and staff – Jessica (reservations), Neima (front desk), Miguel (handyman) and Cesar (hotel manager) – for their hospitality and taking excellent care of us. Overall a very good stay!

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 707, upstairs and across from lobby. It was quite alright.

This is into my brother's and my third week on a trip to Mexico. The hotel has a strong hunting lodge flavor. Our room was too cold for my brother when we got in and staff quickly lit the gas stove in our room. Once it got up to the thermostat setting the stove went out and the room held temperature nicely for the rest of our one night stay. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast in the hotel. Lunch was a bit limited (we wanted to eat at noon before we went on a 1:30 excursion and that's still breakfast time in a lot of Mexico). Both the fish fillet and trout for dinner were perfectly cooked. The sides were very ordinary (white rice with corn and iceberg lettuce with a slice of tomato). Happy to see whole wheat toast for breakfast. My brother's hot cakes were a little undercooked in the center. Ever since Chihuahua (we are on the Chepe) the standard refried beans with breakfast eggs taste like Campbell's.

We went on the two hour excursion at 1:30. Included Arareko Lake, Tarahumara Caves, San Ignacio Mission, Valle de las Ranas and los HOngos. More interesting than we expected. Also the Museo casa de los Artesianas is definitely worth the $10@. Fewer people speak English in Chihuahua than the other places we've been ( Mexico City, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Yucutan) and I'm afraid my 50-year-old high school English is poor. Still with an English-Spanish dictionary I've been mostly able to make myself understood even if my comprehension is very limited.

We stayed for 1 night on a recent visit to Copper Canyon. The rooms were very satisfactory, the food very good, and our over-all stay pleasant and enjoyable. They have a bar/ reastuarnt with foosball, pool table, music, and live music some nights. From here we took a short tour to visit surroundings, Tarahumara village nearby. I hear this is a good base camp to go explore area via horseback, atv's or other fun activities. Would stay here again when visiting the area.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are pretty much the same.

The food was below average in the restaurant. Some of this may be due to the lack of local sources. However they make very good wood oven pizzas. The latte were fine if you ask for an extra shot of espresso. The bar is friendly and had good service.

The cottage rooms were pleasant,
The was little room for clothing, the fireplace was broken, but plenty of blankets

There is a new airport that is expected to open next year (2014) which will help getting there since the trip up and down the mountain can be a hassle.

The area is beautiful and worth a visit.

Federico (the proprietor) picked us up from the train, he took us all around the canyons, this place was in the tall pines and chilly, it was a great summer break. This hotel was super efficient on water and electricity, it was the most energy efficient place I have ever stayed. It was so comfortable and all the staff were friendly. Every one was so accommodating, even though we spoke very little Spanish every one was very good to us. Most of the staff were fluent and those that were not fluent English speakers were pretty good as well. There were 2 good restaurants on the property. Frederico arranged our private 8 day tour starting in Chihuahua, we went to Creel, then Botapillas, El Fuerte, and Barrancas, we swam in hot springs and peered at the most unbelievable canyons. The Barrancas del Cobre (Copper Canyon) is marketed as 4 times larger than Arizona's grand canyon, all I can tell you is the canyons go on and on, one end is in the tall pines and the other end is in the tropics. The indigenous population of raramuries or Tarahumars are obvious at every turn. The raramuries earn a living at subsistence farming and marketing hand made crafts. The people, the land the language and diversity of the place, I can not go on enough about how wonderful our entire trip was. The entire 8 days including all travel and hotel some meals and tours for 2 people was just about $2,200, great value. All of the hotels we stayed in were at least 4 star places. All of them had almost a fairy tale feel, all were perfectly maintained and looked like something out of Disney land, but they were real. Mexico deserves another look at! There was a police presence at the tourist spots and on the train, it was reassuring. The people are wonderful, there is no better service in the tourism business than in Mexico. Consider giving Mexico a chance for your next adventure.

Everybody is really nice, great service, great food and the best massage.

The pizza place is wonderful too.

TV signal broke with strong winds but who wants to watch TV in a great place like that.

Maybe a little over average in rate but wasn't a deal breaker.

Hope to go back soon.
