This place has a cute, tacky sign and is affordable ($75 for single, $85 for double). It is very close to the airport. It has big TVs in each room and a large bed.
There is loud talking and constant coming and going from the rooms. Late in the evening a person next door was shouting about money. I suspect there is small-time drug activity happening. But the price is right, right?
At 6AM, I was awoken by the sound of a stranger entering our room. I thought I might be dreaming and quietly asked the person to leave. They gestured to the extra bed and I realized I wasn't dreaming and got out of bed to chase this guy out of our room. I couldn't believe it. My wife and I were asleep and all our documents and money were accessible. It was pretty disturbing.
The front desk doubted what had happened when we called them. They reviewed the security cameras and said that the gentleman had let himself in, that the door was unlocked and that it was our fault. Then the guy who had broken into our room casually walked right into the lobby and started eating the complimentary breakfast.
I was totally floored by this experience. Palacio Inn Motel is an unsafe crack den and shouldn't be listed on TripAdvisor. Stay somewhere else if you value your property and privacy.More
