    « Nice place in a great location. »

    Posada don Vasco is located in the entrance of the city, which avoids a little bit the heavy traffic to downtown. Hotel is good, although beds are not comfortable, with hard mattresses. If possible, ask for the new building, cause bedrooms at the older part of the hotel are kind of dark and a little bit smaller than the new ones. Pool is very good, but the casino/bar (playroom) is old and not well conserved. It has some pool tables, table tennis and an old bowling alley, where you have to arrange the pins manually. Restaurant is good, with good mexican food at a fair price. Actually this hotel is one of the best you can find in the region.

    « Overall it's the best in Patzcuaro »

    The hotel is divided into the old section and the new one.. STAY in the new one. The hotel is very relaxing with beautiful gardens and and an overall nice experience. Restaurant serves local food specializing in Michoacan Cuisine. The swimming pool and the summing pool area are very nice. It's a beautiful colonial hotel and you have the limits that a colonial building has. Amenities are nice. Decor of rooms are colonial yet with a touch of modern. Service is good and it is your BEST bet in the city.

    « Great weekend »

    I spend a family weekend in Posada Don Vasco, we were assigned a room in the oldest part of the hotel, the room was very old, the carpet had a funny smell, and on the same day the gave us another room in the newest part, the breakfast buffet wasn't all of it great, but they had a few good things, the staff was helpful and kind. I will stay again, but I believe they should improve their cuisine, since Michoacán´s gastronomy is so rich and unique.

    « Disappointing »

    This is a tough one to write because the hotel should be so much better than it actually is. First... Pros: --Very convenient location on Hwy 120. It is next to a supermarrket so you can pick up those little items that you may need. More importantly, it is close to the two sets of ruins and many other area attractions. --The staff. While the hotel is a disappointment, the staff were always courteous, friendly and helpful.They did the best they could with what was available. Unfortunately... Cons: --The hotel is very dated. Obviously, it is a much older hotel, but wires are exposed, paint is old and sloppy, the carpet is frayed at the walls and--worst of all--when we opened the door to the closet and the light came on, there was a buzzing sound like electricity arcing. --Towels are at a premium. When we checked in around 4:30, we were told our room was ready. We went upstairs and found that there were only 2 small hand towels. I asked the maid and was told they were still being cleaned. Granted, we were there for the New Year holiday, but a hotel without sufficient towels? It seemed like they had just enough to cover the rooms and maybe one or two more. I had to ask Reception at 6 about the towels and still we waited. The maid was quite apologetic, bu we did not have towels until 8pm--incredibly annoying since we had been traveling for over 5 hours and were hot, sweaty and not exactly happy about not being able to clean up. --The food in the buffet was never very good, not well replenished and one step away from cold. --The pictures you see online are from the back. The garden is quite lovely and the building is impressive, but the front sits right on the main road. This is not really a negative, but it is a bit misleading; however, if you arrive late, parking could be a problem --As I later discovered, prices were doubled and even 5 times normal because of the holiday. While we did not get as badly gouged as others, there was not anything to warrant the gouging. --It can get quite noisy from the courtyard. --The bed is rock hard. --Wi-fi was iffy, at best. Even when I go close to Reception, it faded in and out. Using it in the room(and we were close to Reception) was frustrating. Connections were often lost, when they could even be made. This is not a horrible hotel, but it was a very deep disappointment.

    This is a great place to stay I definitely recommend it. Lovely architecture, is quite, relaxing and excellent location, close to all in town tourist attractions. Customer service and attention is unbeatable.

    « Old hotel with lack of care »

    We stayed there in a double room with a balcony, the room was pretty but was generally old and, it said that the room had WiFi, which worked for about an hour and then stopped working. We talked to the manager and she said that it was going to get fixed, and it wasn't. The employees are very very nice but the hotel lacks maintenance.

    « An oasis in the heart of Mexico »

    Stayed here for a few nights and was very impressed with the hotel and the immaculate grounds. The lawns & flowers everywhere were wonderful and very professionally kept. The rooms were nice, and while not 5 star, were nicely kept, clean, and comfortable. The property was quite large, and the rooms in the back were very quiet. Although we didn't have a chance to use it, even the pool looked clean and inviting. The wi-fi in the common areas was good, but found it inconvenient that we had to leave the room to get it. Would be so much better if they expanded the service and signal so we could access it in the rooms. The restaurant was good for breakfast, and the Sunday brunch buffet has a lot of choice and variety, even an omelette station. The parking lot was secure, and we felt very safe and comfortable at the hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

    « Wonderful Hotel and Location »

    Very quite and authentic hotel with beautiful gardens! The restaurant is good and the people and very kind! I learned how to make a real margarita! There is billiard and swimming pool! We enjoyed so much! You can visit the lake of Patzcuaro. Internet is OK.

    « Decent stay, seems a little run down »

    The building is impressive but the rooms feel a little run down and smelled mildewy. The bathroom had some mold on the ceiling. The grounds were well kept and the staff was friendly. Not a bad place to stay but not as amazing as it could be.

    « Great place!!!! »

    The place was awesome for our family stay in Pazcauturo. We arrived at night and the bell boy was very helpful and left we ease. He said any help we need to let him know for example towels, pillows, blankets, etc. ??

    « If you have service dog or want conveinence, this is not your place »

    I have a certified hearing service dog in the US, with all documentation and paperwork supporting it. This Best Western is part of an American chain. It's individually owned, yes, but I am seriously shocked that they would not allow a certified service dog from the US. I ended up being glad that they did not accept my dog, because we found another, far better situated hotel that DID: Hotel Posada de la Rosa. Unlike the Best Western, it is right in the heart of things, and also unlike the Best Western, it is not next to a huge discount box store. We ended up being happy that it worked out that way, but I do think the Best Western chain in Mexico should have policies that reflect the United States with regard to access and disability.
