Please do not bother to stay here. This place is either a hit or miss, obviously you get what you pay for but sometimes you don't even get that. This was the case for my friends and I. We flew in at 7AM into this location, we expected a double double bed. But as soon as we were buzzed in... More

Stayed one night for a funeral very close to this property; left immediately next morning. So I can't say anything about the nice staff. I have never required much luxury; just needed a bed and a quick shower. Understand this going in: It's not a hotel; it's an inn. They tell you that up front. And it's an old one... More

I stayed here after checking in at a hotel in Miramar that was so bad, so scary that I literally grabbed my stuff and walked out. My friend & I walked down Ashford ave & came upon El Canario. It was late night & we were weary. We wandered in & explained our situation. The man at the front desk... More

We stayed here for a night before leaving on a cruise and loved the location. Right across the street from several nice eateries, and convenience shopping. It was a short cab ride to forts in Old Town. The hotel itself is older and the rooms are small, but we were very comfortable. We had 2 rooms for a family of... More

This place should be a hostel as it resembles one. My fiancé and I stayed here three days to spend the weekend in San Juan. We aren't picky but the bathroom was tiny, maybe 10 feet long and 3 1/2 feet wide for a toilet, a sink, and a standup shower. It was an odd set up since the toilet... More

Its an inexpensive place to stay the night, have breakfast (free) and leave. If you are thinking of staying in, this is not the place. Although it is reasonally well maintained, there is no view, no pool, no parking, no bar. Basically nothing to do. Sleep, eat, and go!

When I relocated to San Juan for work, I stayed here on my first night before moving in to my apartment. The location is in the heart of all the action, yet I could not hear it from my cozy room. The AC was cold and the service was great. I would recommend this place to people vacationing in San... More

I liked this place a lot. I don't understand the other bad reviews. All the guests I talked to, I'm a very social person, seemed very happy with the place. I thought the staff was very nice & helpful. It's a great location where you can walk anywhere. It's very safe & clean. I liked it & will stay again... More

Great people, comfortable, quiet without all the craziness of large families little kids. They treated me great! It's a block from the beach and walking distance to everything. I would definitely stay again! The walk to the room was private, beds are super comfortable and the ac blows super cold
