We were driving towards west end of Puerto Rico and decided to stay in the Hatillo area. Hotels are limited and we chose the Parador El Buen Café Hotel. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. The hotel faces highway 2, but traffic noise was minimal. An observation that we have not seen... More

Inexpensive place to stopby for a meal if driving towards the west side of the island. Expect cafeteria quality food and service, clean bathrooms, avg prices. Menu includes bfast, local food, and bakery pastries I stayed at their motel several years ago--overall 7.

Saw the reviews and decided to try it. Didn't realize that it was a hotel at first, kind of small, but clean and well maintained comparatively speaking. Upon arrival i checked out the pool, which you can only access by walking out of the front of the hotel (only part i didn't like). The pool was small but clean and... More

There aren't a lot of choices in this area but if we had known what we were getting for our getaway money, we would have kept looking. The hotel was clean, everywhere, grounds included and the staff we dealt with were very pleasant, couldn't ask for nicer people. There were plenty of clean towels and soap and shampoo were provided... More

After reading different reviews I didnt know what to expect, but overall my experience was nice. The service was very pleasant, the rooms dont have much upgrades, but they are completelly clean. The surroundings were very nice, and you can't even hear the main street, which for me was great.

Prior to staying at this hotel I read the TripAdvisor.com reviews of this hotel. Having done that, I knew exactly what to expect and therefore I was not upset. To set the standard, you should be aware that the hotel is old. It has had some upgrades but does not have hotel grade fixtures. The rooms still use normal keys... More

I made reservations while on the move and was pleased with the friendly staff, quality and cleanliness of the accommodations. I enjoyed my stay & uses El Parador as my base of operations for excursions around Puerto Rico. Would definitely go there again.

Price was excellent. Room was clean and staff was friendly. The Cafe may not look like much but it has an awesome breakfast and good dinner. Staff at the Cafe were super friendly. If you need a friendly place and fair price this is it. At least that was my experience.
