My husband and I just spent 2 days here and enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was warm and comfortable and the bed was great! All of the rooms are different and the entire hotel is filled with fascinating furniture and artifacts from all over the world. We loved Banamichi and the area - it's quiet and rural, perfect...

Banamichi is a beautiful town and is well worth the drive (note that in Nov. 2016 the road from Magdalena via Curucpe was under construction - taking another route is advisable until this is completed). The hotel has a lovely interior courtyard and roof patio. The rooms are clean and well-kept. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food...

I have been staying at this hotel since about 2008, watched it go through a change of ownership and management. I can honestly say that it is operating better than ever.

My wife's family is from the Rio Sonora valley, and we stayed six days at the hotel during our last visit. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a door leading out to the second floor sitting area. The staff was friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant was great.

Decent for small town. The rooms were OK, a little dark. I like the courtyards in Mexican hotels but this one was kinda narrow. Food was OK. Banamichi is a small town, only a couple of hotel choices, so I wasn't expecting the Ritz. No serious complaint.

Dear Matt, Sorry you were NOT super pleased with La Posada or Banamichi. Even though you stated "I wasn't expecting the Ritz. No serious complaint." You did give us the lowest score we have ever had in more than 10 years. Hopefully we can learn from this, but we do understand that this little town, stuck back in time, is...

This hotel is a little jewel in a wonderful area just across from the town square. Our room was very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was outstanding with great service. I would go back if the opportunity presented itself. The court yard was just wonderful and the decorations delightful.
