People often ask me about inexpensive rentals in the Lakeside area. I lived in Beto's motel when I first moved here. I was there for four months. It is a great little place to stay. I had a bad knee and couldn't walk far. I could hobble to the plaza from there because it is only half a block from the motel. I loved the excitement of living in the heart of Chapala. If I had to move out of my little casita I would most likely move to Chapala. The rentals are less expensive than they are in Ajijic and I like the excitement of Chapala. Beto rents his places by the day, week or month. I don't know the daily rate or weekly rate. There are single rooms and two room apartments. The single rooms are around 200 dollars a month and the apartments are around 300 dollars a month. There are several people who live there long term. The back rooms are quieter than the front ones and the rooms on the left side get more light and are warmer. You can call Beto to make reservations. Evenings are the best time. His number is: 376 765 7087.
