Great beach front location, rooms are dated, but clean, small bedroom, fairly sized washroom. Tv was tiny, like 5x5 inches tiny, wifi was good enough to stream netflix though, so it was fine, huge terrace with sun loungers, literally on the beach although the hotel does not offer beach service. great price for the centre of the city tucked away...

Very, very helpful and pleasant staff. The location & price make it a sweet deal. Easy 5 minute drive/20 minute bus ride to Old San Juan. Secure parking for three cars a great bonus, of which we were able to take advantage.

This hotel is right on Condado Beach, and a great bargain at $95/night ($113 with tax and Service Charge). The Booking site said the room would be charged to my credit card immediately upon reservation, but nothing was actually charged until we checked in at the hotel. We had a wonderful ocean view room (#8) on the second floor –... More

Finding this location was kind of difficult. Yet after locating it and seeing the views it was worth it. Within walking distance to everything. Will return as soon as I possibly can. Beautiful country.

This place is the perfect location at a great price!!!! Beautiful patio overlooking the ocean. No direct beach access, but just a block down is the entrance to the beautiful beach. Room 3 was very small, but had a very nice, large bathroom. No frills, but clean and neat. Service was excellent! The woman at the front desk could not... More

What seemed to b a hole in the wall at first turned out to be a pretty nice place. Great location with view of beach from patio.This hotel has a kitchen for anyone to use and all the basics you would need. There is limited free parking on the property and on the street. There is also a yellow curb... More

This is one of the most unusual hotels I have stayed in. It's like a step bak in time, literarily, from the front desk piled with papers instead of computers to the decor. The building is small and dated and the room was very small and basic. But there are bonuses, like a well equipped community kitchen and an ocean... More

Recommend Ocean view rooms. We stay in room 8, which has direct ocean view. There are 5 windows in the room. Three windows face to ocean and two face to patio. You can hear the sound of waves to sleep at night. The room is not as clean as 5 star hotel, but it is acceptable. WiFi is weak in... More

This hotel was very cute and hospitable. Luckily, I was able to get a room last minute as my previous plans had changed. The lady at the front desk was really sweet. Our room was at the top of the flight of stairs. Very cute room! The only negative was no elevator and with a stroller and a chunky baby,... More

This is a lovely guesthouse just steps from the beach. However, it is not a fancy place by any means: the guesthouse is small and does not have a person round-the-clock at the desk, for example. However, the manager is INCREDIBLE! Very sweet, helpful, and nice. Even when there was an initial problem with our room (maid had forgotten to... More
