Great for the price
We went as a family vacation and spent New Years in Mexico. The beach is a five minute walk, but it is not located where all the action is. That would be near the Fiesta Americana Hotel. All you have to do is take the bus for 4 pesos.
On news years eve we walked to the beach. All the people from Mexico City gathered and watched the fireworks. The whole bay lit up it was nice.
The breakfast at the hotel was very good. Walmart is right accross the street where you can buy hot food for so cheap. Walmart is excellent and very affordable. Hooters is great too.
I would recommend this hotel if you are going on a familty vacation. The rooms are a bit smelly but which hotels down south are not. If you are going on vacation to party, I would suggest you stay anywhere near the Fiesta Americana. It is always busy lots people between the ages of 19 to late 30s.
For the money my husband would go back.
It was ok!! only if you....
GO TO SLEEP!! :D i went with almost all my family and it was ok, the problem was that it smells like mold!. Staff were very friendly and nice with us. Rates are cool, and the location is the best of all.. Sushi ito, subway, i special recommend Fersatto's restaurante, -typical mexican food, and the CHILAQUILES.. are the best of the world! mmmhh!!-
I spend almost all the time at the beach and Costera, in the night to the Clubs or discos so I recommend this hotel if you think that u need just a place to sleep, and save some money..
Great location - but average accomodations
We spent spring break here - and the location is awesome - right near all the clubs and especially Walmart! :)
However, the hotel was mediocre, the bed was hard and the AC never did function to it's fullest capacity. Plus, if you wanted to use the mini fridge (empty of contents) for your own food, you had to pay 100 pesos extra. Then of course, there was no remote you needed to pay a deposit for that.
I think the Hyatt down the street looked nicer. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was hard to swallow. It's not far from the beach though - just a quick 5 minute walk, so that was okay.
Don't go There
My husband and I stayed there Feb. 05. Wouldn't stay there again. Acapulco was great, but not this hotel. Being by Wal Mart was the only good thing. They don't care about you until it's time to check out. We got 2 phone calls from the desk then. No ice machine and have to put down a deposit for security box and TV remote. #300 pesos each which you get back at check out. They didn't have any remotes when we asked. Good thing. Who needs 600 pesos on your way out of Mexico?
You can buy ice at the store, but they don't want you to bring anything from outside the place unless you have a kitchenette room. We did anyway.
They really sock it to Spring Breakers too. The last day we were there, their bar (if you call that a bar) prices over doubled for "the Spring break special"
Not much more $$ to go to a better hotel. A taxi driver even told us that.
Very nice for young people
I went to the Casa Inn for one night, a saturday.
The hotel is very well ubicated for partyers: it's in front of the Baby'O, very close to the Alebrije, the Planet Hollywood, the Hard Rock Café ... and many other discos and bars. Nearby you also have many places to eat well (El Fogón, Subway, Hooters, 100% Natural ...) and shops, above all it's very practical to have the WAL-MART in front of the hotel. There are 2 car rental offices very close, Alamos and Sadda, who rent you a car from 55 USD/day.
The Casa Inn doesn't have beach but it's about 3-5 minutes walking far from it.
All the bedrooms have private balcony, from which you have a partial sea sight (you can sea the sea from your balcony if you look on the left), but there are a few rooms with integral sea sight for the same price. I've been in one of them and the sight is very nice for quite cheap: 50 USD in low period.
So well, if you want to go for disco and fun, this is the choice! If you want to be quite ... maybe it's not, since the beats of the Baby'O should prevent you from sleeping.
The location is great, the staff is very friendly, the place is newly renovated and I do recommend it for Spring Break in March and for families during the rest of the year.
I am not agree with the guys from the Continental "bumping" honestly is not the hotel fault.
Terrible Experience on Wedding Anniversary
We had (2) rooms on April 04, 2004. We were thankful that it was only (1) night!!!!
The rooms were absoulutely terrible - smelled like mold! The stench was so bad we walked over to Walmart to get room deodorizers/lysol/incense, anything that we could think of the cut the smell. The drapes on the balcony were just full of mold.
We didn't go to the front desk as the staff looks at you like they don't understand English. However, the lobby (1st floor) was absolutely beautiful.
The (2) rooms that we had were "free" from Continential Airlines as our flight didn't come back until the next day. I wouldn't have paid a dime to stay there - what a dump!
The problem with this story is we ended up in an argument (tensions were very high) with the other couple that we were vacation with.
We offered to change rooms because our room wasn't as bad as theirs and they said "no" because they knew that I had allergies to mold. We were up most of the night because we couldn't sleep due to the smell. It was also the night of me and my husbands wedding anniversary - what an anniversary to remember.
Stayed here for Spring Break 2004
The Casa Inn is a decent hotel that is upkept nicely with pretty clean rooms. The only problem was that we stayed there for spring break and it wasn't really all that full of spring breakers and there was a lot of families that stayed there. We thought that it would have a lot more spring break people staying at it but there weren't a whole lot of people to meet at our hotel. Also, when we came back with beer one time we each had about 12 beers each to bring up and the hotel staff would only let us bring 6 up each which we thought was crazy and it caused quite an argument. Other than that the place was fine and it was about a 2 minute walk to Wal-Mart which was convenient. I would not reccomend staying there if you are a Spring Breaker but otherwise it's alright.
Oh yeah, and if you're going to party go to the Pallidium!!! It's unbelievable!!
We were there in Feb/03.It was a pleasant experience: nice clean room with balcony, pleasant staff, and the breakfast buffet was great!"Casa" is (conveniently) close to WalMart, near the disco area but not loud at night. Pool is small & more suited to tanning & families with small kids but the beach is only a block away>We"d go back there again>
Place was great! Loved it.
My wife and I was there this past winter twice, thougt it was very clean and friendly, the buffet breakfast was very good, we plan on returning this year aswell. would recommend highly Dorothy and Bruce

... s devastating Hurricane Manuel, so tourism (the main industry) has hit an all-time low. The lack of other foreign tourists in the area made us easy targets for determined salespeople and long stares. We didn't feel safe walking around at night, nor comfortable laying on the beach (though we did stumble upon an awesome veggie restaurant). We paid upfront for three nights' stay at our hotel and left after ...
... really get in without a private yacht. So each end of the bay represents 2 different class extremes, and the middle is a strip of fast-food, retail shopping, and over-priced family restaurants. I stuck mostly to the old town, as it had more character and energy...but after a day I was good to go. There wasn't really anything to keep me interested, and I was looking forward to the laid-back style of Puerto Escondido.

Today we spent the day sailing down the coast of Mexico. From our map, we are off the coast of Acapulco. No port stops today as we are heading to Guatamala, which takes two nights and two days sailing to arrive. The waters are very calm and the sailing very smooth. We are both very relaxed and Johnny is enjoying the variety of foods on board.
... The resort itself is quite pleasant and really enjoyed the sunsets. Also recommend trying the Fish and Ceviche at La Genuina. The restaurant is out of the way but the textures and flavors were really amazing. The restaurant itself was situated in a warehouse type building with local bands and music. Someone quoted that this looks like a Salma Hayek ...
... At times things got a bit confusing, but just about made it there. I wanted to stop off at some caves, but even after speaking with the bus driver and telling him I wanted to get off there, he drove straight past them, meaning I’d have to go back the next morning – thankfully I had a DVD of Glee to watch at full blast on the bus to keep me occupied – REAAAAAALLY enjoyed that one…
Hadn’t lined up anywhere to stay in Taxco, primarily because ...
