We stayed at the El Encanto Inn for 4 nights last week and loved this place. Everyone was very polite and Edwardo is especially sweet. The place is very clean but challenging for those of us who are fragrance challenged. They use a perfume in there cleaning supplies and the first room knocked me out when I opened the door.... More

This is a great hotel if you want a step up from the cheaper options but don't want to be in a big resort. The front office staff was very helpful. The rooms are on the pool and great size with beautiful beds. We will continue to use this hotel as our old town hotel in the future.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming inn. It has a lot of old Mexican charm and is very centrally located to old town. Our room was nice, but on the dark side - hence the 4 star.
