Okay, I'll admit that three stars is a bit rough for Hotel Los Pilares, I wish there was a three-and-a-half star option. After all, this hotel is clean, well run, and quiet. Rooms are adequate, bedding is nice enough and staff is friendly, if a bit shy.
While we didn't have any major inconveniences, my thoughts were that I'd probably try a different hotel if/when I return to Oaxaca. Why? Little things like: hot water that takes more than five minutes to warm up; having to ask the breakfast waiter four times for milk for the coffee, a long-ish walk to downtown sites, cramped space in room and especially the bathroom (depends on the room, I'll admit -- our last night we moved to a room that had a nice large soaking tub), and a cozy bar in the courtyard that never seemed to be open. We chose the hotel largely because we saw that it has a pool, and we hoped the children could splash around in the afternoons. The pool turned out to be very small with murky, chilly water.
Am I nitpicking? Yes. But that doesn't change the fact that we'll try someplace different. Who knows, maybe I'll come to appreciate Pilares more!
