Booked room through Booking.com. Picked this hotel as it was conjoined with a very nice little restaurant - Piu Bello - and figured why not. Cheap, tacky and marginally clean. You will not be pleased when you walk in your room, floor sticky, poorly lit... Noisy like a drunk tank. Walls are apparently not well insulated. Small room, small bathroom.... More

Just returned from a long weekend in Puerto Rico. By the look of the hotel lobby, one would think the accomodations would be sufficient......WRONG! The room was very small and the bathroom was EXTREMELY SMALL. I don't know how a teenage could fit in the shower let alone a grown adult. In our room we were given a small refrigerator... More

It is more than ok. It is close to the beach, has two restaurants in the building. It is clean and neat. Service is attentive. You even has a lot of convinient stores around the corner. Parking is across the street. If you are in Puerto Rico this ia a good option.

The winds blew in a big storm and we got dumped in San Juan overnight, en route to Chicago. I picked Coral by the Sea because it was near the airport and inexpensive (and my first option didn't hold the room I reserved). Those two attributes, along with a terrific diner, are the positives--the desk clerk was very nice, too,... More

Traveling solo and trying to stay on the cheap, I picked the Coral By The Sea Hotel. As is per usual, you tend to get what you pay for. And I got just that: cheap. This was pretty bad though. Dirty linens and old stained towels. No toiletries and terrible bathroom. Maybe the only redeeming value was proximity to airport,... More

We had a very unfortunate event occur. We missed the cruise boat we were on. We had nothing. no clothes, no toiletries, only one credit card, and no passports. Someone recommended this place to stay. It was older that really did not matter to us. We were tired and just wanted to crash. The man at the front desk was... More

I was very happy with my stay. I really don't know why there are poor reviews... What are you expecting for $90 ( 2 queen beds w refrigerator) a night hotel nestled in between $500 per night hotels? So yes, it is not a five star resort hotel but its simple, safe and ideal for the price especially if you... More

This place is a pleasant surprise. Remodeled rooms, attractive, very clean, bathroom tiles in the new modern style. But most of all the staff. instead of pretentious cocktail hour grins, real down to earth friendly people. In walking distance to the beach, close to a supermarket and drug store, fast food if you want it. But another surprise was the... More
