Clean, friendly and accommodating, the Malibu Hotel is well priced and comfortable. The rooms have been renovated. the beds comfortable and they have a pool! The restaurant is only so-so, but they are right next to a big shopping mall which has many restaurants, some good shops and a cinema. Being on Avenida Vallarta is convenient for me because it...

Hotel is older, but has been renovated. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was good. Water pressure was excellent! It was nice to have a mini fridge in the room. There is a small coffee maker in the room, but bring your own coffee if you don't like the Nescafé provided. Pool was heated, which the kids enjoyed. We did...

From the time we checked in, our stay was outstanding. From the convenient location, to the friendly staff we had great 6 nights in Guadalajara. The rooms, hallways, driveways...everything kept clean. Going to give room a 4 due to a bit of noise that came through the walls and ceiling...a lighter sleeper might have a problem. Very attentive as well....

This hotel is excellent for overnight stays in the City. Normally we would return home to the Chapala area, however sometimes, especially after eye surgery when a doctors visit the next day is mandatory, this is well located, near a major mall and many nice restaurants. It has a great taxi stand for quick trips around town. There is parking...

We spent the night there before my wife's U.S. visa interview. It was everything we wanted. Very nice staff, clean, safe parking and a great breakfast buffet included with the internet special.

Stayed here on my way back home. The hotel is very nice and the rooms are ok. It has a motel-like set up but it is certainly not a motel. It's right next to the Gran Plaza, where you can go walking. Restaurant is ok and the pool is a good option for a little relax time. Would recommend this...

“A Junior suite)in the tower) costs only a little more but is worth it.”

“Like the tower best; the rooms numbered 132,232.......532 and 133, 233..............533 have more closet space to put your luggage out of the way.”

“We were in the tower facing north. This would be a good choice for summer as south side would get very hot.”

“There is a tower and then the other rooms are motel style for people who drove there. I chose the tower as it seemed the safest option. Having said that the property is gated with a guard 24/7.”
