For the prices you cant exepct anything more. Nice and close to the beach and other things to do like eating bbq right around the corner. Beds smelled good and room was clean. they serve breakfast in the restaurant, so that is always convenient if you dont want to cook on your vacations.

This place is ok if you just got out of prison. The one high, skinny window looked like it had bars on it; our plumbing was out -we got one flush out of the toilet! I somehow was able to get a shower, when my husband went to get a shower -THERE WAS NO WATER! The bed gave me a... More

My husband and I stayed here on business for 2 weeks because it was the only hotel in the area that has a relationship with the corporate travel agency. The hotel's location is the best thing this hotel has going for them. It is near to the highway, walking distance to a very nice beach (Sardinera) and close to many... More

One of the planes I look placeward to ofying at when in Puerto Rico. My wife and I usually travel there every other year as all of her family is still in the Camuy area.Always very courteous and helpful there. I speak little spanish so being at a place that every one speaks English is a big benefit also. Cafe... More

We stayed over 5 months and in one occasion (around the time is was on vacation mode), they went overboard with a reservation,... More

After being charged twice for a night's stay I have waited over two months for a refund. Have spoken to Melissa - the manager - twice to no avail. Have left numerous messages subsequent to those conversations to have her call me back when promised refund was not made. Finally had no choice but to file a dispute with the... More

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
