Well, in the outside the place seems just fine. Inside, it was simply clean. The wifi works and the hot water but, sleeping was impossible due to all the noises outside (specially motorcycles) and the A/C was freezing and wouldn't turn off. In this place, you get what you pay for. Simply a place to spend the night...

I used my t-shirt for a pillow case and slept in my clothes. At least their pricing is in line with the condition of the facility. It is close to the beach and main strip though. The pool and area are nice and the WiFi was always accessible.

An excellent value for the low price of $50 per night. Very friendly, helpful staff, top to bottom. Everyone was friendly from check-in , "reception staff", to the security guards, (watcheyman), toting sawed-off shot guns always, to all the maids, and my breakfast cocinera making eggs to order, hot and cold cereal, and healthy vegetable soup (all included,don't forget a100...

The hotel is basic. Security is on the premises with pump action shot guns. There is pool. Eighty percent of the people on premises speaks English except security and maid service. It's a five minute walk to the beach. There's women always walking by to say hi. However no one is allowed to come past the desk unless they are... More

A very old hotel, the lobby is nicely redecorated but the room we stayed in was dark, smelly and looked dirty. Wires hung all over the bathroom and we were close enough to the street to hear people laughing and talking as we got out of the shower. Will never stay there again.We were there in October 2012.

Boca Chica is not a great destination place but if you need to be close to the airport you can find hotels for about $45-50 a night. The Calypso hotel was our second hotel of the evening after being "aggressively panhandled" at the first hotel we checked into (1st hotel had nicer rooms at $50/night but we could not take... More

Nice swimming pool, interior space was nice (patio), kind of old furniture. We have spent one night only at the Calypso because the door knob came off as we entered the room. For this reason we did not feel it safe to leave our luggage when we were outdoors. However, this small is hotel was very friendly and close to... More
