9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the fact it has history and the story.
7.9 Good
Pros: Nice room with big bed in great location
Cons: Staff were a little pushy in the bar
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The attention to detail with ambiance was unexpected and way more luxury oriented than I ever thought for this tiny town. The staff is really fun! It’s a historical mansion. Pool is great! The breakfast is about $15 usd which is high compared to a few bucks down the street but you get so much convenience, great food, great ambiance, great service....and you’re eating in Zorros Mansion. Yes he was real.
Cons: Everything exceeded expectations
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A number of separate and historic courtyards make each area special. Traditional and very comfortable rooms. Good food and bar (though a bit overpriced). Helpful personnel. Courtesy shuttle to “El Chepe” train station appreciated.
Cons: Quite a few mosquitos (and not obvious).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved that it was a historic hotel in the Center of town. The building, the gardens, and the decor were marvelous! The staff was great, and it was nice to have tours offered by the hotel.
Cons: Nothing
5.4 Okay

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely property with very attractive facilities. Food was delicious. We made reservations the Zorro dinner and so glad we did. It was festive and made the stay there more memorable.
Cons: Rooms r not well maintained compared to the beauty of the property. No attention to detail. They need a manager with hotel experience from a US high end hotel or someone to walk their properties with that skill set to provide a list of improvements. Unnecessary failing s detracted from the ambience.

5.5 Okay

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great Hotel really close to downtown El Fuerte, we where the only Guests, there was no Bar service or Restaurant Service , beside the Breakfast (standard Eggs or Hotcakes) but probalby because we where the only Guests. Staff is really attentive, everyhting you need you will find there, great rooms with large ceilings. since there was no Barservice we went out to buy our own drinks.Roms are really clean and comforatble beds. I recommend this Hotel!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location and the staf was very helpfull. The decoration of the hotel was clasic!!! Thanks!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The Mansion felt exactly like an old colonial mansion, with a gate that was guarded during the night (not necessarily for safety but nice to know that someone would be there to open the gate whenever we decided to return and to know that whatever we left in our room would stay safe). It had a big courtyard with our rooms on the side under an open, covered walkway. It also had a very nice pool with a covered slide. Nice, clean, and Spanish-style traditional. The rooms were large and spacious, though the bathroom was small. We were two blocks at most from the central area of town where the church and the park were, with several restaurants that were reasonably priced and had excellent fare. It was also within walking distance of the museum (El Fuerte) and the river walk. Just bring plenty of bug spray for there were many little black flying bugs that bit any exposed areas and later itched. The only place in our Copper Canyon travel in April that was buggy.
Cons: The town is a distance from the train station and though the person in charge of the hotel promised to send a taxi for us there was none: the only place in all our trip that did not have someone picking you and delivering from/to the station. Taxis were plentiful and we hired one without a problem, and the driver was there early in the morning to pick us up when we had to return to the station.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable room, very helpful staff and secure parking. Everything we wanted at a reasonable price.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: A very nice room, spacious and clean. Comfortable beds. The hotel manager was really helpful phoning our next hotel for us when the train to the copper canyon was cancelled and leaving us stranded with no means of reaching it. It was really appreciated. The little pool was really nice for a cool off (though it’s much smaller than it looks in the photos) - it wasn’t really possible to have a proper swim but nice all the same. The pool slide looked a bit dubious so I didn’t try it :-)
Cons: The WiFi was not good. Didn’t work at all in the room and worked vaguely in common areas outside. I did wonder if it was the mountainous area but WiFi worked well in restaurants in town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is well looked after, rooms are large, bed is comfortable, lots of sitting areas in the gardens and pool area, secure parking, have stayed here a few times before and would definitely recommend this place
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the location near the plazuela and other facilities
Cons: I like everything the guest room is confortable eve that we arrive in late October the inside was fresh and the mecedoras wee inviting.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: No evening/lunch food at this time of the year. Breakfast was great , cook made anything you wished and was willing to start earlier if your travel plans needed an early start.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: My kids lived the pool and slide. I loved the location and how quaint it was.
Cons: Nothing
Hotel el Fuerte - El Fuerte - Building
8.3 Excellent (364 reviews)
C$ 72+
7.9 Good
Pros: Hotel in lovely old hacienda with very funky old Mexican decorations -- much like a museum. Location at bottom of Fort and one block from main plaza.
Cons: Would have appreciated if Hotel supplied reasonable transport to and from train station like many others.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - loved the little pool - liked the style and all the decoration - very big room with a window - huge bed - big bathroom, enough towels - everything clean - very helpful and friendly stuff at 24h reception - right behind the main cathedral and close to everything
Cons: - WIFI just in the common area and not very good - they should have mosquito nets in front of the windows
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Historic mansion. Very well decorated centrsl.ro everything.
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff and breakfast were very good, and helpful. The common areas are beautiful, full of Mexican artesanas.
Cons: Our room was cramped, not very clean (inside of bathroom door covered with a year of dust), the toilet was cracked and the flapper valve didn't work, the shower water went all over the bathroom floor, causing a slip hazard. There were no chairs in the room to sit on, only the bed. Our window looked at ankle level onto a noisy street. TV did not work. Window air conditioner was very loud, very old.
7.5 Good
Pros: The location and the Mexican style of the hotel.
Cons: The tv and internet didn’t work.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were incredibly helpful, patient and attentive. They helped me negotiate a train ticket that was hard for me to do on my own.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is charming and the staff is great. The hotel has a dining room and kitchen. They offer breakfast but as we were there in the low season it wasn't available. The coffee they made was great however. We had a dinner there one night when there were more guests and that was excellent. The hotel is near the museum (up the street) and the central plaza is a block or so anyway. The plaza was lively and fun to hang out. The river is close by and has a paved walkway. A number of restaurants and street vendors are nearby. There is also a pharmacy and ATM close by. The staff was really gracious and friendly.
Cons: No complaints, the weather was hot and humid but the room was airconditioned with a ceiling fan and that helped.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is great, It is really wonderfully decorated and larger than you would think. Room was clean and very roomy. Shower large. Bed was king and comfortable. Room was air conditioned and included ceiling fan. All the staff was great and friendly and helpful. The host was great and spoke English and was very helpful. The location is great in the old town with a great central plaza, with food carts and people strolling and sitting. The local church and Municipal Building are right off the plaza. The local museum is just a short walk up from the hotel. The river has a walkway along the banks which is close to the hotel as well. ATM and great food carts and restaurant.
Cons: I really liked this hotel and our stay there.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Rooms big and comfortable Courtyard is gorgeous (attached) Pool area nice and relaxing (dubious cleanliness but it was 36 degrees c) Staff generally helpful (if you can locate them) - the new owner of the restaurant, Diego (I think), was very kind and informative Location is right next to the main square and less than a minute from the museum and malecon etc The much more expensive hotel located 30s away organised tours and does the Zorro show so you can just go there to sort out activities. They also allow use of their bigger pool as long as you buy something Aircon works and is essential
Cons: The first room we were given had a ceiling that leaked water onto the socket my charger was plugged into as well as the bathroom leaking (this was during a rainstorm in the afternoon while we were napping) Rooms inconsistent as everything is so old so in our first room the fan didn’t work but in our second the lamp was missing - we much preferred room 2 to the initial one we had Generally very dark inside and windows covered and unreachable so there is no natural light in rooms Breakfast is absolutely awful, my girlfriend loves chilequiles and described them as the worst she has had in 2 years of living in Mexico. The eggs and coffee both cold and flavourless Hotel does not provide transport to and from El Fuerte town so you have to factor in 300$ for both legs to the station which is a complete rip off as it is a 10min drive each way
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Hotel was comfortable and clean. We got a triple room with 3 beds and the space was great. The location was very convenient super close to the plaza. The dinner at the restaurant was great also!! we tried different moles!
Cons: Pool needed to be cleaned!!

Cons: Having to pay for breakfasts
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The river view from the hotel was great. We also loved the bright murals and nick nicks around the hotel. The hotel needs a few basic repairs but nothing that detracted from the stay. The bed and hot water shower were great.

8.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great. It was only about 4 blocks to the plaza. Rio Vista is on a hill with a great view of the river. The property was fun with rooms in "hidden nooks and crannies" but always with a good view and good decor.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Personnel was super nice all the time. View to the river is great
Cons: They have a moth issue, which causes the room feel dirty every morning. Some geckos also find their way into the room, which isn't nice to see
6.3 Good
Pros: Amazing views of Rio Fuerte from the hotel. They arrange a day trip to the secret Forrest via the river which was interesting and fun. Breakfast was good. Two min walk into town.
Cons: This place could really do with some love and care. It has great potential.. Parts are unfinished and other parts rundown. Room 18 had termites and a broken faucet so we asked for another room and got an upgrade to room 20. This room had an A/C that was broken (only went to frost) and in the end had termites as well. The place could do with a proper cleaning and renovation. The restaurant does not serve lunch or dinner. There is a bar, but always closed. The views really cannot make up for it all.. The staff try their best, but it lacks professionalism. Given, the prices are low, but if they do up the place they can ask a higher price with this location and view
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: A lot lizards and bed bugs, the termites from the logs roof made a lot mess on the floor and the lizards made a lot noises and Pooh everywhere even on the bed . Horrible! I still having the bed bugs bites marks . This made my trip not enjoyable.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Funky design, part of old fort. Nice river views.
Cons: The room was missing some light fuxtures.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: View of the river from our room was spectacular! Plenty of hot water and pressure in the large shower! Small lovely pool that they are readying for spring and summer! Felipe runs a float trip down the river to see birds and a short hike to see some recently discovered petroglyphs- he is very knowledgeable about early history of the area and the flora and fauna!
Cons: Small “no seeum” type bugs that chewed us up pretty good- take your repellent!

Pros: Bus stopped right in front of it, I got the second night cheaper without me asking for a discount, staff was very helpful
4.2 Okay
Pros: The location in the main street , remote from the traffic, just in front of the bus terminus.
Cons: They asked us to pay in advance the 2 nights instead of one night , and by Western Union because they don't accept credit cards ,so we payed 5 $ for the transaction . The staff was not friendly at all , called a taxi to go the Chepe and the driver asked a very high price. No coffee , everything was minimum . The floor was dusty in the room . Poor bedding and shower watering the whole bathroom !

7.5 Good
Pros: Staff and owners were very friendly
Cons: Coffee, parking for vehicle , bare-bones room… Good have a chair or small table in it. Also the price, we booked ahead of time and paid 773 pieces, if we would’ve just walked in we would’ve paid 650 pesos, not impressed.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at the Hacienda after a long day of travelling. This was the beginning of our travel to Copper Canyon The husband and wife who checked us in were so nice. They went out of their way to make sure we understood everything as they only spoke spanish and we only spoke english. We managed :) The Hacienda is located on the main street to the town square-it is central to most tourist events. The Hacienda is an old, historic building which has an inner, open courtyard. The rooms are quite large and well looked after. The bed was very comfortable. There is excellent wifi as well as a very good breakfast. In our opinion it is great value for the money.
Cons: I really cannot think of anything. If you are looking for a true Mexican accommodations this is it-if you are looking for a posh, modern hotel then this would not be for you.
7.1 Good
Pros: Location. Also the room had AC which worked very well and it was very hot at the time so was very welcome. It was very good value for money and the staff were friendly although they didn't speak English.
Cons: The decor was a bit shabby but it was clean.
7.1 Good
Pros: The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The air-con worked well.
Cons: The worse breakfast ever! Everything instant, even milk! I got also scrambled eggs with sweet bread and no butter at all :( I included photo of breakfast
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The check-out time 1pm! The colonial style of the property, the wall colours and garden. The staff was very nice.
Cons: It could probably do with a little modernisation but for the price, you can’t expect something of the 4 star level. It did the job and was a nice place to stay.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We got a lot of personal attention. The staf was very helpful, happy and even took us with his car to a hotel to a guy to speak english! Room was clean and with good airco. Nice and home Made breakfast
Cons: We missed a swimming pool with the hot weather
9.2 Excellent
Pros: This is a budget hotel located a 5 minute walk from the historic Centro area of El Fuerte. The rooms are basic but clean with comfortable beds and the air conditioning worked well. The owners are very friendly and helpful although there was a bit of a language barrier. All in all an excellent choice for budget travellers.
Cons: Very Small bathroom
