This place is especially good if you are arriving by second class bus or going out that way, as I was (to Ajijic). The rooms are clean, have hot water and clean baths, firm beds, everything no-frills but, hey, what do you want for about $25 a night?! The management is very helpful and friendly. I advise eating somewhere else than the Ottawa Restaurant just off the lobby. When I was here years ago, it was fairly good, but not today. My breakfast was almost inedible. But the rooms are a huge bargain. You get about what you do at the Fenix down in the Centro at about a third of the price. I wasn't pinching pennies on this trip but did not want to schlep all of my luggage all the way to the cathedral area. Another couple of pluses are the Walmart two blocks away and the Metrobus only a block away. It will take you down to the Centro in about five minutes. I will stay here again if I return to Tapatiaville.
