Staff and guest make lots of noise in hallway. Have issue with A/C, staff responded quickly, but had to come back with a remote control. Why not have a control IN ROOM? Staff not very friendly! Generally not very clean or comfy!

Check on was painfully slow. There were three people behind the desk but only one working. I spend my time talking to Robert. He has a little tour desk there he is very passionate about what he does. The rooms are clean as well as the bathroom however the shower is extremely small. There is a Walgreens about a block... More

This hotel was totally disgusting. We walk into the pretty hotel lobby with high hopes, upon stepping into the elevator, I knew we were in for an adventure. The elevator was a shoebox that was rickety and scary-take the stairs, just for safety. Upon opening my room door it wouldn't open at first because the bathroom door was ajar and... More

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
