Your app indicates that the hotel is pet friendly. After driving 8 hours through the Mexican desert we got to Tepic. It took several missed turns in this very old city to find the hotel. I went in to check in and told the reception that I was there with my wife and my dog. TWICE!!!!!! Checked in and got all of our luggage, got to the lobby with our dog and was promptly told that they didn’t accept pets. (None of the hotels in Tepic takes pets, yet your app says thar many do). The reception gave us an address for another hotel that turned out to be a concert venue. If not for two very nice young men we’d have had to spend the night on our car with our dog and cat. They found us a private residence. So as far as I’m concerned either Expedia or the Hotel needs to give us a $ 1000.00 USD credit or cash for the danger you put my wife and my animals in. If I don’t hear back from you, you will hear from my attorneys. My personal email is and my cell phone is (310) 736 - 0506. I’ll expect your response.

The place was very clean and close to all the shops for buying souvenirs. Free full breakfast every morning. Hotel has tours you can book from there. There is day and night time tour bus of the city right in front of the hotel you can take. The night time one was so much fun.

At my arrival hotel told me that they couldn’t find my reservation so I had to show it on my expedia, I wasn’t welcomed as vip nor offered an upgrade or a drink as advertised by expedia; lastly I have TWO charges for my reservation on my credit card when it should only one so the hotel said that they only charged me once. I love this hotel but this time the made my stay very unpleasant by all of these issues

Loved the location. Their complimentary breakfast was really good. Lots of options. The only thing I had an issue with was having to ask multiple times for towels when we were moved to another room. Overall it was a good experience and would recommend staying here.
