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)...

Stayed one night as we had to be at the airport very early. Room and staff were very nice and the place was clean. Visited the beach behind the hotel and they were very knowledgeable about the local area.

We stayed for our honeymoon, we paid about $70 a night. Stayed for 5 nights, our room was small and the bed was full size, a little small for us, but it was comfortable. The staff was GREAT, they spoke english very clearly, had good recommendations for places to eat, they smiled and waved as we came and went. It... More

I stood at this hotel twice. It's very decent and clean. The best part is that the beach is just behind the hotel. Most of my vacation is spent at the beach. If you're looking for some night life fun and entertainment, I recommend to check out El San Juan Hotel & Casino. Fridays and Saturday they have some good... More

Had to go to walgreens to buy towels and some shampoo. Cleaning SUCKS! Unpleasant odor in the room. Found a black hair on the bed and also in my towels.... More

Hotel dates from before everything was Americanized in this area, so it retains its Puerto Rican flavor. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful, and all are bilingual. The hotel is in a great location next to a fantastic beach and close to the historic district. Lots of restaurants close by, both American-style and local... More
