Visited during high season Other hotels were so expensive Had no choice but to stay in this one, do not judge a book by its cover. Loved it! The staff, the location. Room was clean, had everything I needed. Beach right behind us, amazing restaurants n entertainment at walking distance. Will stay there again next visit. Most definitely.

We didn't use any of the facilities, but it served the purpose we needed. My friends and I got to SJU around midnight, went straight to the hotel via a $16 cab ride. We easily checked in and were shown to our room, where they were able to roll in a sleeping cot for our third person. We used the... More

Our flight got in at 1am and we needed a place to sleep for a few hours before picking up our rental car. It was just my daughter and I and since we arrived so late, we did not turn on the TV. We had a nice, large, clean room with very comfortable beds and a large shower in the... More

Agree that the hotel is conveniently located close to airport and beach, large free parking lot, and is clean and the staff is helpful. The minor problems that we encountered were the wifi worked in the lobby but not in the room, and we were directed into the lobby/kitchen to use the wifi but encountered a swarm of mosquitoes that...

This is a low rent featureless motel that is ideally situated next to the airport ($15 cab ride) and is perfect if you have an early morning getaway. The staff is friendly and helpful. Don't expect much. In fact don't expect anything at all. The place is clean but offers NO amenities. Isle Verde Ave is party central and several... More

This is not your average Isla Verde fancy hotel, but it is in Isla Verde! We needed a place to stay the night to go to New Year's Eve parties at an affordable rate, and this was it! It has parking on premises (free, just for guests), it is a walking distance to the area's major hotels, pharmacy, restaurants, car... More

$80 for a quiet, clean double bed room that is one block from the beach and a variety of restaurants. Good luck finding that combination of amenities elsewhere in San Juan. Also, free parking, AC, wifi, cable TV. If you're not in Isla Verde/Carolina for a luxury vacation and just need a tidy, basic place to stay, this is it!... More

The upside to this hotel is that you are one block from the beach. The staff was friendly and the shared kitchen would be handy for longer visits. The downside is that the conditions of the room was in very poor repair. Especially the bed, which I would argue is the most important part of a rented room for sleeping.... More

Hi Scut1517, Regarding your concern about the bed, we would like you to know that all of our mattresses are new including the box spring, less than 6 months and they have the same quality as the ones at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and Sheraton Hotels. Thanks, BBI Team More

We stayed here the night we flew in to and the night before we flew out of San Juan since it is about 5 minutes from the airport. It was comfortable, clean, inexpensive and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach is right behind the inn, there are tons of local and American places (Walgreen's, Burger King, etc)...
