“Professional or traveler will enjoy the Dickinsion Guesthouse”
Reviewed 12 February 2007

The Dickinson Guest House provided ALL of the amenities a business professional requires with the added bonus of a well supplied kitchen to cook a feast (i.e thanksgiving dinner), W/D, and a private "CLEAN" bathroom. I was accompanied by my fiance and we enjoyed romantic dinners and privacy that is often lacking in a busy hotel. Since the moment we arrived we were graciously greeted at 6am. James helped us on various occassions ranging from connecting my laptop for wireless internet, providing directions to tourist sites, suggesting special atttractions that we certainly would have missed, and most importantly seeing to our comfort and enjoyment of GDL. As a medical professional, I travel very often and seldom have, I come across a quiet, clean, comfortable living accomodations as the Dickinson Guest House. James is a kind-hearted, generous, sociable person easy to be around and engage in good conversation. For future travelers, I must highlight that this guest house is close to all venues of transportation and is located in a safe neighborhood. In fact we walked a couple of times at night from the nightclub or simply enjoyed the rose garden nearby. I "HIGHLY" recommend this place (great price for what you get). My fiance and I will certainly return for another romantic escape.

If are looking for complete privacy...this is your place! I really enjoyed my stay and will stay there again if I return (availability willing!!). The place is not gargantuan, but definately not tiny either, and VERY comfortable. Everything seemed to be brand new and tastefully decorated; again, I will have to say this added to the comfort level.
Mr. Dickinson gets A++ honorable mention for his accomodations; from the actual room/house, right down to the hospitality he continuously showed throughout my visit. The room and house remained spotless the entire duration (5 days) I was in residence...and let me tell you that I am extremely picky - as I'm quite a bit of a 'neat freak'.
All in all, this was a spectacular value for a minimal cost. I have absolutely no complaints - only praise. I would most certainly recommend tourists or business people take advantage of this wonderful alternative to a hotel...I'm pleased to have found it myself!

  • Liked — Value, hospitality, cleanliness, comfort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dickinson Guest House , within walking distance to the Guadalajara Expo Center is a cost effective hotel-alternative to the many new luxury hotels that abound in this well maintained area of the city. We are available as a whole house rental, which is popular for those coming from the North during the winter months-or we rent rooms out to corporate or business travelers that need to be close to the Exposition center and this business hub of the city. This large home in the Chapalita neighborhood of the city is well know by locals. It is not to be confused with Lake Chapala, another destination of about an hours' drive away. We also have a shortcut to the very enjoyable towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala, home of many artisan shops that are just beyond the historical district, a short ride away. Our business services for the traveler that needs fast internet service will be surprised to experience speeds that are actually superior to even the finest hotels in this pricey area of Guadalajara. The fully equipped kitchen will be a place for those who enjoy cooking for a group or for themselves. It is also has plenty of storage space for beverages and snack foods for those who prefer eating out at the many great restaurants that surround us. Come and feel the difference of the personal touches and amenities offered, while enjoying your privacy that is very much part of your wanting a private home. There are several spaces in this large property to enjoy with your friends or colleagues while still enjoying your private bedroom. Now that the business meetings and conventions are closeby, this home has become a popular alternative for 6-8 single guests or 4-5 couples on a stop-over visit to other Western cities in Mexico. If you are travelling as a group, why pay the high prices of separate hotel rooms when you can have a private room in a house and still be with colleagues or family? If you are looking for a week-end in the city-coming from Puerto Vallarta, bring some friends and take advantage of all the space to enjoy while at home! An excellent choice to stay in Mexico's 2nd city, for 10 years now-and counting! ... more   less
