Fiesta Inn Tampico
"Just OK, Lovely staff and good food, rooms so-so."
To start, the hotel offers transportation to/from the airport which is always convenient. The ride to the Fiesta is short. Check-in is pretty fast if you have a reservation, although it was very full at the time I visited. This is my second stay, the first one was several days ago. I am in a different room. I have tried the restaurant as well. There were no check-in problems so I went to my room on the 5th floor. The elevators are small and you can fit two people and luggage OK but 3 or 4 people with luggage would fit only with uncomfortable intimacy. I did not see any luggage carts available, there are two elevators. You need to use your room card to access the elevators, I suppose the hotel views it as some sort of security but any card operates any of the floors -some security. It also delays you as the card only works in its slot one way. Although the hotel is non-smoking now, as non-smokers know well it is difficult to expunge the stench completely and there was a faint smell of cigarette in the hallway, trapped in the carpet or wallpaper or seeping from one or more of the rooms. The rooms are ample (I've seen two with king beds) and the beds aer comfortable with serviceable and attractive linen. The furniture is plain but functional. Do not look for any ergonomic features or comfort in the desk or chair, but you'll be able to do brief work or some computer use before the lack of adjustments start affecting your comfort and musculo-skeletal health. The rooms have a few detrimental design features: 1. The bathroom is small and the door blocks access to the commode unless you maneuver awkwardly around it; and 2) the dresser serves as the TV stand and is placed at 90 degrees from the natural view from the bed, even though the room size would permit the bed to be placed naturally toward the TV. You are therefore forced to twist your neck in a very uncomfortable posture to view the TV. Not smart! The first night (room) I spent here, five nights ago, the A/C was off upon arrival and the room was muggy, the A/C controls had some sort of digital contraption attached above the original controls, which were not intuitively easy to adjust or turn on the colling, but eventually trial and error was successful in turning the cooling on. The second room was operable with the original controls, but it was also turned off upon arrival, and the room had a slight moldy smell before turning the air on. Cleanliness of the rooms is acceptable. The carpets within the rooms are free of tears and noticeable stains although there is noticeable faded areas and slight discolorations. It was hard to find a hair, but I did find one in the bathroom floor to the side of the toilet. There is an electronic safe located in the closet but it was high up, could be uncomfortable for shorter people and you cannot really see what's in it as it is overhead. I did not attempt to operate it. I have had two dinners at the restaurant. As has been said elsewhere the staff is very attentive and friendly. The food was very good at the restaurant. One glitch was two items ordered from the menu were not available and the waiter did not know. A replacement dessert was provided free of charge, unsolicited, which was a nice gesture. The waitress during my second dinner offered helpful advise regarding city activities, again unsolicited, which was appreciated. The restaurant is really big and every time I saw it it was empty. The tables and chairs are not uncomfortable, and the staff wears professional attire. One side of the restaurant faces a lagoon and is visible from that end. Another notable point is that this hotel WILL NOT ACCEPT U.S. dollars, and claims to be prohibited from doing so by regulation. It claims to be designated as a "business" and not a "tourism" hotel and thus not allowed to accept U.S. currency. I was separately advised that the local economy likewise would not accept U.S. currency due to concerns with money laundering? If that is true, it would be a major factor for tourists coming to this hotel, this city, or Mexico. The internet is serviceable, if not fast. Whats App voice calls were difficult to maintain, while Skype calls were slightly better voice quality. The hotels are equipped with a typical hotel phone, but it requires a deposit to use it. Pesos or credit card only as U.S. currency not accepted! There is no ATM at the hotel but there are a number of banks nearby including 24 hr ATMs. The hotel has a small car rental office, but I did not try its services. I also did not use the pool. The hotel has smoke detectors and sprinklers in the rooms but it is not known if there are operable or whether the hotel conducts any drills. It's safer to stay in lower floors to ensure safe evacuation and reach by local fire department ladder trucks, specially for elder, infirm or lazy guests. There is a fitness room with a few machines 6 or 7, and does not require a key. It has no TV. In summary: This is a serviceable hotel which provides a decent night sleep, quiet and comfortable, and should be OK to spend a few nights, up to a week. After that, if you need to work at the desk or enjoy to watch many hours of TV in your bed, your neck and your back will make you wish you had stayed elsewhere! The staff is wonderful, and the food is good and reasonable. Tip is not included and for restaurant is 10-15%. Many things are nearby. I've been drinking the water for 5 days with no detectable ill-effects. I've never worried about that ! Vaya con Dios!
"Perfect area in Tampico "
Tampico isn't without its challenges but I found this hotel very nice , really helpful staff who spoke English well and the food was great. Can't fault breakfast was fantastic . Nice area nice views but hotel is looking tired in places
"Buisness Stay Tampico"
Hotel is located in good area of Tampico. Staff are very helpful and most speak good English. Food was very good particularly the breakfast although there are lots of option near the Hotel. Free wifi worked well. Although rooms were clean its clear that the hotel is looking tired in places and is in need of some refurbishment. There was also a slight dampness smell which I linked to the air con unit ( which provided cool air but was loud). Overall very good 3 star hotel
"Staying in Tampico city"
During the business trip to Tampico city, I stayed 3 days in Fiesta Inn. The room was a quite average level. The restaurant in the hotel had a very good lake view and had also variety of Mexican and western food. Internet connection at the hotel was satisfactory.
"Recommended in Tampico"
