Having read the reviews of other visitors to this hotel we drove 850+ miles looking forward to staying at this hotel for 2 weeks, big mistake!!!!!!! Trying to check in there was an argument ensuing between a french family and the manageress, more about that later, when we checked in we were told that we would have to pay for parking which was 12euros per day which wasn't mentioned in any of the descriptions, eventually we checked in and walking down the corridor was the most disgusting smell, like someone had mopped the floor with dirty water and tried to cover it up with bleach. We entered our room which had an overpowering smell of cigarettes, the toilet moved when you sat on it, the bedspread was dirty and smelt of smoke, after pulling this back the sheets were dirty and ripped with hairs, air conditioning was not working, we informed the manageress of our issues and nothing was done, she didnt seem interested at all as she was on her way home at 4.30pm!! she even thought the whole situation was funny saying it was a cheap hotel what do we expect, what we expect from anywhere we have stayed is cleanliness and helpfulness and friendliness which was certainly lacking in all departments, we asked about a remote control for the TV and was told there would be a daily charge(have you ever heard the like) we then asked in the bar for 2 glasses of water with ice and was told the ice was only for alcoholic drinks and to go down to the local supermarket and buy our own!! barman informed us there was a fridge behind reception we could use but again we were told that there would be a charge of 3euros per item to use it, by this time we had had enough and swiftly found another hotel and moved there, which we can recommend, Hotel San Jorge was everything Xaloc was not and nothing was too much trouble, not that we had any complaints at all. As with other people we do not usually write reviews but the hotel was so bad we wouldn't like others to experience what we did.
