5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Great service. Location is very convenient. Access to a great sports club (La Loma).
Food is ok.
Business center very convenient.
Only issue are pillows (to hard ones and no alternatives to choose from).
Definitively I will come back next time I visit San Luis Potosí

Stayed April 2014

Hotel service leaves a lot to be desired, but pricing is ok and the facilities are clean. The real benefit comes from having access to the las lomas sport center next door. A great sport area with tennis courts, soccer, indoor and outdoor pools, full gym, etc etc.

The hotel is no longer named Camino Real, the new name is Real Inn

Room Tip: Request a room facing "Las Lomas", that's the sports center behind, the rooms are much...

The first impression and last you get of a hotel are the check-in and check-out procedures.

After repeated stays at this hotel since 2008 , 2010 and 2012 i can say it : this is one of the hotels where i have experienced the WORST check-in and check-out experiences in my life:
(And since 2008 i see the same faces / employees working the front desk it )

During these sold-out Christmas -New Year Season period you can expect :

-To spend between 20-30 minutes to check in (vs. a hampton inn/holiday inn express where it usually takes you 5 mins?)

-To spend around 30 minutes checking out....only to find out you cannot get a detailed charge bill/statement/invoice because "the system" is not working...(2X: 2010, 2012)

-Hope they do not overcharge your credit card because of the same

-See guests (always) arguing and getting mad and speaking loud to the guy in the front desk (same guy , always since 2008) , and request to speak to the hotel manager to ALWAYS hear back during this season ,that "she is on a holiday and will be back on the 4th of January".

Really , it really makes me mad , the level incompetence of management that cannot set-up a system to speed- up check in (have rooms assigned in advance , door keys programmed , check inn formats pre-filled, at least for guests who made a reservation), pre-print statements and leave them under the door, and set-up a back-up credit card charging system for guests if their "IT system" is not reliable......and other measures on THE most important critical part of a guest experience.....the FRONT DESK!!

And of course management that leaves the hotel at a PEAK season...

Besides this the hotel rooms are comfortable (except for the Shower that will always flood the bathroom floor no matter what you do or how you use it...)

The great advantage of the hotel is the access to one of the greatest country clubs in Mexico , La Loma (that is why i am a repeat customer)

And do not expect flat-screen TV´s in your room ......which even at cheaper hotels are offered nowadays....

Traveled through SLP on way from TX to Puerto Vallarta and was very pleased with the Real Inn. The property was renovated March 2012 and is very chic - marble flooring, pleasing paint and linens, modern lobby. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have large showers with clear glass doors. The entire property was very clean. We did not use the restaurant or lobby bar, we ate across the street about 1/2 block south at a local restaurant/bar which had excellent ceviche and grilled carne tacos! The complimentary WiFi was excellent. The staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful. The parking is on-site but not as secure as we would have liked - we had no problems though. A good value!

Room Tip: We stayed on the sixth floor on the street side which had a nice view but would recommend requestin...

I stayed at this hotel for business reason it has very good internet speed and it close to many places. The accommodations are good the bathroom is clean and the room is also very clean, the only concern to me was the bed is a little to soft but that just may be me, the buffet has a nice selection of fresh fruit and juice, I truly can say if I'm in SLP again I will definitely stay here. Also terrific gym and sports club right next to it with no charge.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms facing the street

I visit SLP often for business and have tried various hotels in the area. Although this one doesn't have the US Name recognition, I find that this hotel is super sharp in modern decor, reasonable breakfast buffet and access to La Loma Club which is what ultimately sets this one apart. Given the security concerns for travelers in the Mexico region (SLP included), having a safe and comfortable place to relax and exercise that exceeds the usual small room fitness center makes this place ideal. The hotel staff are friendly and do a great job at accomodating English only speaking guests. My only complaint about the hotel is the refrigerators in the rooms (I tried multiple) do not really work well. However, the beds are comfortable, shower is fantastic in size and style, rooms very modern and the lobby maintained clean.

I did notice that the lobby had a piano (electronic operated) and it would have been nice to have music playing in the evening. Otherwise, this piano seems a little out of place. The food is ok, but the breakfast is the best. I tried both the buffet where you can have most things made to order and also room service which proved to be worth the extra price. Lunch and Dinner should only be eaten here if you are desparate as the food is not of the best quality in either presentation or flavor.

Finally, the internet service works better here than other wi-fi services at the other hotels I have tried. The bandwidth handled Netflix which is something the other major hotels in the area cannot quite handle. If you are looking for a reasonable hotel with a great feel and access to a world class fitness club (think true country club), this is the place for you!
