... It was good nothing was going on today with all the people because I was certainly busy. Yesterday my stomach was making gurgling sounds but it passed. This morning I had a situation. Woke up, ran to the bathroom, took a shower and waited. Repeated in one hour. Again in two hours. Once more in two hours and it was done. I was fortunate to be in my room with toilet and shower handy. No accidents. Enough of this. I still had my free breakfast and a beer with ...
... name. It’s a place where North American expats look to live on the cheap south of the border. It almost seems like the USA plonked in the middle of Mexico. Seeing huge American cars squeezing through the narrow cobbled street driven by blue-haired matrons is really a sight to see. We have lunch at Tango, which is outstanding, but filled with gringos. The town looks very clean and well ...

After than we headed back to El Dorado for our siesta which has become the normal case before dinner. We decided that we were going to go to Number Four for dinner and a show (Battleship), but we've come to understand that any plans that you make here in Ajijic ...

I suspect only Alan and I enjoyed the day, the whole thing with the locals, the volume of the music, the cultural dimensions, etc putting off the rest. Saw a C[anadian] P[acific] rail car at 1716. Began the return journey at 1719 but stopped almost as soon. Bought a sombrero shot 50 MP, moving again by 1735 for the slow trip back. #7 was 'Vampiro', tequila and tomato juice in a pre-mix.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cervantes Guadalajara
Spent two nights at the hotel last week, and it was everything the girl who booked it for me said it was. Clean, convenient walk to downtown, friendly staff and great food.
Excellent location, quiet room, excellent service
I stayed at the Cervantes Nov 4 to 8 2004 and I was very delighted by the location. Everything seem to be at walking distance. I enjoyed my room on the swimming pool side which was very quiet. The service was also excellent. The swimming pool had the insulating blanket on some days which was not too inviting though. The pool area was also a bit messy. They have a very "would be nice" terrace on the roof with a view on the city but it is unfortunately not treasured.
Better and cheaper than most
I attended the International Book Fair in Guadalajara this week. The first hotel that the American Library Association paid for was less than ideal although more expensive.
I switched (after my paid for stay had run out) to the Hotel Cervantes. The hotel is convenient to the Center, well appointed, clean and well maintained.
A single room was $MN 600 per night, although I probably could have recieved a discount if I mentioned I was there for the FIL I was told after I checked out.
I recommend this hotel above the other, and in fact it is superior to the hotel for which the association was billed 95USD/ night.
I've stayed at the Cervantes several times and I'm never disappointed. During my most recent trip to Guadalajara, I wanted to try the Hotel Frances , but ran screaming into the arms of Cervantes.The rooms are spectacularly clean and the surrounding neighborhood is wonderful.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff
Spent 5 days here and loved every minute of the stay. Clean and very nice rooms. The view of the city from the rooftop is awsome. Rates are very inexpensive. I would recommend that you don't eat the salads here. Numerous people were ill because of them. Rest of the food is very good.
Hotel Cervantes... an excellent choice!!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Just returned from several days in Guadalajara, Tepic, and Puerto Vallarta (PV). This was our first stay at Hotel Cervantes in Guadalajara and we were VERY pleased: GREAT LOCATION (3 blocks to cathedral, Plaza de Armas, major shopping); ROOMS were super clean, comfortable and spacious, and .... QUIET!! (day or night); STAFF was friendly, helpful and efficient; HOTEL DINING ROOM BREAKFASTS were Excellent!! (wide menu selection, quality and quantity of food, as well as Service). "Sanborn's" was just 2 blocks away, for late evening snacks or with other tasty meals. Parking available for hotel guests, with taxis readily available at the curb. An EXCELLENT (reasonable)RATE for such caliber of service!!
We stayed at the Hotel Cervantes in Guadalajara for two weeks while studying at the IMAC Language Institute, which was nearby. Excellent service and accomodations. Centrally located. We hope to return soon! (good restaurant there, too!)
We stayed here only 1 night while visiting Guadalajara. The hotel is really nice!! The rooms are spacy with a huge bed. The bathroom seemed new and looked nice. Location of the hotel is perfect. Within 10 minutes you're near the Cathedral. Very friendly staff and the breakfast buffet is good. I can recommend this hotel to everybody.
Wonderful modern hotel.
Very clean hotel, A/C, cable tv, large bathrooms. got extra water when asked for it. Location is a little further from downtown, but well worth the extra few minutes of walk. Price very reasonable. Paid 620 pesos / night for a single.
Great place, great price
I go to Guadalajara twice a year or more, and have made the Hotel Cervantes my "second home." It is clean, quiet, friendly, and luxurious without being stuffy. The breakfast buffet is good (never tried lunch or dinner), attendants ALWAYS friendly (they actually remembered me the second time I stayed there), and I just don't have anything bad to say.
