My brother and I stayed here for about 3 nights during labor day week 2015, before heading to the south side of the island to stay with family. We wanted to spend a few days at the beach and checking out the nightlife around San Juan, so it was great for our purposes. Nothing fancy, but the beds were comfortable,... More

Borinquen beach in. 70$ Me and my girlfriend stayed there for one night and we were glad to choose this hotel. It's not far from the airport but there is no noise. The parking place is provided (and free!) and equipped with surveillance cameras. The rooms are in the 1st floor so no need to take stairs. The room is... More

Super clean, very safe, very comfy, and in a fantastic location. Staff was perfect. If you want a newer place, pool, and smaller rooms, you can pay TEN TIMES MORE and stay at the Ritz on the same block. Location is close to Walgreens and some of the best restaurants in SJ. We loved it and highly recommend it.

The hotel is located right on Isla Verde Avenue, it is steps from the beach and walking distance from restaurants, bars and other hotels. The hotel provided free parking, which meant s saving of about $40 of parking for our 2 night stay. It is right on the main avenue and next to the beach sidewalk to Isla Verde Beach.... More

What you will expect from a hotel, in this place “is not entirely true”; First they don’t point the $5 per night service charge, the $10 extra charge for every adult per nignt, the $10 extra charge for an extra bed per night. If all the above were in great condition I would not complain, but the extra bed was... More

Hi, With all due respect, what you described in this review, is the complete opposite, it's like if you stayed in a different place. When making reservations, all guests are encouraged to read, since most of the websites don't include tax and service charge in their final rate quotes, but they provide that information to the clients, including extra person...

I don't want to offend the staff because they were great and the location is awesome oh and free parking. Take your own towels, dryer, soap and iron. You will share kitchen fridge, stove, microwave with I guess 12 other units, I didn't mind. Walk to beach 5mins. 10mins from airport, great hotels, casinos, restaurant and clubs. The reason I...

We wanted to stay in Isla Verde, near good restaurants and major expressways so we chose this hotel that boast to be "for the budget conscious traveler." This hotel offers no amenities including ice or an ice bucket, or even a lamp in the room. The towels are old and have been washed so often they scratched when used. The... More

Hi Enid, We appreciate your review, but in the other hand, we do offer the amenities listed on our website, such as free parking, soap, towels, etc. We don't offer ice machine service as listed in our pages.

This is a tiny hotel but if your looking for a good deal in a great area and just need somewhere to shower and sleep. This is the spot. I have stayed here a few times a 3 min walk to the beach. No pool.

The room we stayed in looks like a dorm room of an underfunded university. There are no windows in the room save for one that looks out at the main office. Perhaps that is why they covered it with a curtain that falls off if you try to open it. Also, to adjust the air conditioner, you must ask the... More
