“Very High Expectations Exceeded!”
Reviewed 13 April 2009

I found QDJ on tripadvisor. After reading the almost unanimous 5 star ratings I decided to give it a try. There was 4 of us for 4 nights. Me, my wife, my daughter (6) and my son who celebrated his second birthday at QDJ.

The place itself is beautiful and is ideally located to explore this really interesting part of Gaudalajara. You can see that they have really thought about what a guest really values while traveling. Free phone service to the US (I also phoned Ireland for free!), free Wi-FI, free DVD movies, free breakfast, free Airport/Bus station pick-up and Happy hour. You get none of the nickel and diming that you would see at the high-end hotels/resorts in the US. All this by itself would probably warrant its high rating but what makes the place truly special is the staff. Everyone we met were genuine, warm, friendly and very eager to help. My son happened to be turning 2 and the staff took it upon themselves to celebrate with us....We had a great night that maybe even our 2 year old will remember...

Bottomline we can't wait to go back....

Hotel was everything we needed and wanted. It is an oasis for travelers. We felt welcome and well cared for. The staff spoke perfect english and were available to guide us as needed.
We stayed in two different rooms because we booked last minute. The pool side rooms large and beautiful but the main building rooms are adequate but less desirable.
Strongly recommend to stay in Tlaquepaque and day trip into Guadalajara. Stay at Quinta Don Jose!!!

We had a really good time at the hotel, it was very relaxing hanging out there after visiting the busy and loud centre of Guadalajara. Tlaquepaque is a fine part of town and the quinta made our visit a real holiday. Its only 15 a 20 minutes by taxi to downtown for not even 4 euro. The pool with a great bartender did not make you long for the beach!

We stayed here with our 9 year old daughter for two nights. I booked this hotel based on reviews I found on Trip Advisor and it definitely lived up to the hype. The hotel grounds are absolutely lovely and our room was just perfect for us (room 5). The bathroom was especially beautiful with all the blue and white tile and skylight. The location can't be beat and the staff are just wonderfully helpful. We had a 7:00 a.m. flight and the hotel arranged for Jaime, the bartender, to come in early and drive us to the airport. We so appreciated this level of service. We will be back!!

Two couples in our 60's, traveling together, stayed at this property for 4 nights. The first three were in the poolside loft suite. The last night we stayed in unit 7. Our arrival was in the early AM. Upon being greeted the tone for the stay was set. This staff is amazing! Everyone is helpful and cheerful. No question not answered. We were even assisted booking ETN bus tickets. The poolside loft suite was adequate. We thought a kitchenette might be nice, but it was very limited, and we actually did NOT need it all. The spiral stairs to the twin beds would be fun for kids. The seating area is not really that comfortable. We would have enjoyed it more with comfy seating. The property is close to shopping and eating out. The courtyard is a relaxing place to read or visit with guests. We didn't take a dip in the beautiful pool. Breakfasts here were served by excellent hostesses. The choices were many and everything we ate was excellent. We ate an outstanding dinner at the restaurant here and had the best salad ever! Pizza one late evening was also very tasty. Fun times were also had at the bar with Charley. We also spent one night in Room 7. We liked that also. Only one bath. This room has a very nice seating area outside the room that overlooks the courtyard.

We took two tours with Jose and would highly recommend his services. Overall a great stay. The staff makes this place a step above many.

Our quest was to purchase furniture for two new condos in Southern Mexico. The location of Quinta Don Jose was perfect. Close to retail outlets and a short distance to the furniture manufacturing areas. First of all, the rooms are very nice, clean and very comfortable and the meals are great, however what made the trip was the furniture viewing service that the Inn offers. We booked time with Jose'Orozco and he took us around to various furniture manufactures. Jose is from the furniture business so what every you want he knows where to take you to get the style and quality you are looking for. He also took us to Sam's club where we made additional purchase and Jose made arrangements for storage while the furniture was being manufactured. We found what we purchased was of the highest quality and at prices that were half of what we see in Canada and much lower than what is available from the local retail shops. We ended up purchasing from 3 different suppliers and for a very reasonable fee we had Jose coordinate the gathering and shipping of our purchases. Jose made the furniture buy a comfortable stress free experience.
Note; The manufacturing lead times in this trouble economy are running 4 to 5 weeks. You may find you need three days of shopping. A day to view, a day to buy, and a day to gather other purchased items.

This was our best hotel experience. The innkeeper Arturo, his staff and the inn's cat were all so friendly and accommodating. They picked us up at the bus station which was included. The staff was very friendly and worked to accommodate our interests in private tours/classes,etc. The offered excellent recommendations for attractions and food in the area. The hotel is only two blocks south of the main pedestrian zone-- we felt very safe walking to and from the hotel at night. The breakfast was delicious-- the fresh OJ was the best. We especially liked the peaceful courtyard where we had breakfast or a margarita made by the barkeep Charlie. Be sure to ask Charlie about regional tequila recommendations.

The big bonus was our room had a water dispenser in our room, didn't have to buy bottled water the whole trip. The bed was okay but not fantastic, but I picked this hotel for it's atmosphere and friendly staff not the bed. Hope to plan a trip back to the area with my mother for a girls shopping trip and I would definitely stay at Quinta Don Jose again.
