I stayed at a similarly priced hotel around the corner which was more than adequate except that it didn't have an elevator - which I need this time since I was traveling without my husband to lift heavy bags. I instead opted for Coral by the sea around the corner. I chose it because the restaurant downstairs "Platos" is so... More

We chose Coral by the Sea because of how close it was to the beach and to the airport and the price. Was less than $100 per night. Had a window air conditioner that when set on high drowned out all noise from airplanes. The shower was hot with good pressure and the room was clean. The gelato shop on... More

Rooms are old, no fridge, no phone, no clock, noisy, elevator is scary, and worst of all my friend had a cockroach on her suitcase in the morning. For a little bit more money the Hampton inn is across the street.

Room not much bigger than a large closet. Double bed too small for two people. Bed was old, creaked and groaned as if it would collapse No coffee maker, no iron, no hair dryer for my wife. Noisiest hotel we've ever been in. No sound baffling whatsoever. Staff attitude ranged from indifferent to thinly-veiled hostility. Hotel literally shook from planes... More

The hotel is totally out dated. Rooms are not nice and you can hear eveything that happens in the rooms on the same floor. Also the airplanes make loud noise that keeps you up for the whole night. We stayed only for one night, because we were going to drive to Fajardo ferry the next morning and the hotel is... More

One has to consider this something of a deal, given that most hotels and meals in Puerto Rico are pretty pricey. We stayed in January, which I imagine is one of the peak seasons. It's the only place I could find for under $100 US/night after some, although not extensive, Internet browsing. What's good: the location is a quick 2-3... More

For this price it's absolutely not worth to stay in this hotel, it's way too expensive when compared to quality. It's very old, there is the smell of humidity, AC is noisy and impossible to sleep with it, it didn't feel clean enough and we were scared to touch anything there. Bathroom has a small window which goes to the... More

Very nice clean hotel three blocks from the beach. Walking distance to the restaurants with a very good restaurant on site. People eye very polite, and nice. Helpful in every manner. Room was sparse, had nice working air conditioner, tv and phone. Internet was free and fast.

Older building totally remodeled. Large ice machine on the 2nd floor, so for once, had all the ice needed for cooler. Small rooms, but clean. Wifi worked well. English and spanish cable tv channels. Staff friendly and helpful. Asked for extra towels and pillows. Got them immediately with no hassle. Did not eat at attached resturants. 5 minutes to airport.... More
