Quaint hotels in Puerto Vallarta

Here're some of my favorites, they are all in "old town south of the river" or El Centro, price ranges $50-75US/night:

Thanks for the info. I'm already thinking of where we'll go next winter, and Puerto Vallarta may be it. It's been 15 years since I was last there - may be time for another visit!

Although not particularly "quaint" (like the Cuatro Vientos) the Playa Los Arcos is south of the river "on the other side" is clean, well kept, and certainly worth the money.

Actually I exclude Hotel Playa Los Arcos from my list(s) intentionally. I have heard several recent first-hand, less than favorable reviews and experiences from people who stayed there. I've walked thru their grounds many many times. It IS on the beach, so that's a plus. And if you DO choose to stay there get a room overlooking the beach or pool (more $) not on the street side of Olas Altas, which can get very noisy at night.

If you're looking for a "normal" middle of the road beach front hotel, I'd recommend Tropicana over Los Arcos. And if you can spend a bit more money, then I suggest Molino de Agua.

For Don, I think Molino de Agua is a fantastic hotel! I didn't list it only because, I believe, most rooms are in the well-over $100US range. Gorgeous grounds, right on the river & the sea, large walled property that used to be a mango grove. They offer cabins, ocean "view", and ocean front rooms. The ocean front suites are very large rooms in 2-story brick building, with slate floor, private balconies overloooking the beach and ocean, nice furnishings. They have a website but it does an awful job (photo-wise) of showing the place off to its best. Also two huge wonderful pools, a couple restaurants (some years run better than others it seems). Right in the heart of town, perfect, yet peaceful location.
