First off, the reason I ended up at Hotel Maripina was a problem with a car permit with Banjercito and SAT.
Very good price for 1 months rent - they SAT and Banjercito) told me 2 weeks to solve the problem, but I knew from past experience it was going to take longer.
The staff went way above the call of duty to try and help me. Phone calls to SAT and Banjercito every other day. FREE OF CHARGE FOR THE HELP! And I never got the impression that they were anything but friendly and helpful. Great employees at the hotel.
Restaurant is good. It's a local restaurant servicing the people coming to Juarez for business. So it's more what a Mexican would expect in a good restaurant vs. the higher expectations of an American.
The staff at the restaurant is very friendly and accommodating to Americans staying a the note. If your in the area, want a local flavor for a meal - great place to go for any meal.
Hot water, A/C and a reasonable hotel room. Older hotel, so expect a few bugs.
Over all, if I had to spend another month in Juarez, I would not hesitate - I would book at Hotel Maripina with out any reservations.
A good solid hotel that will fit your budget.
Just accept the fact that you're in Mexico and things are a bit different!
I would recommend to family and friends - with the above alerts to lower expectations.
Good staff, good food and acceptable rooms.
