I read about this hotel on tripadvisor and thought it would be good value. No website, just a phone so I called and used my booked a room for 300 peso/night, about $24 tax included. Not sure if there was tax, when I checked in all I did was give the young girl cleaning the rooms 600 pesos for two nights. Should have asked for a receipt to prove I paid for 2 nights but there was no problem.
An easy walk from the pier, maybe 2 blocks at most. Central location so quick walk to most places, maybe 4 blocks to the beach. Lots of small shops and restaurants all over the place. I recommend the cocina economicas, small restaurants where the locals eat. Had some great tasty meals for about 60 pesos. Small laundry about a block away, did my laundry in two hours for 60 pesos. Liquor store right across the street, any time I got thirsty I stopped by and bought a beer for 13 pesos.
Took a room on the 3rd floor. No air conditioning, just a ceiling fan. Daytime temps were around 28 celcius so hot evenings weren't a problem. Although the room was clean it was a little dated with faded paint and paint chips in the wall. Electrical switches and outlets were about 50 years old. Shower head was rusted, there was warm water, mirror was faded and tough to see my reflection when shaving. No safe in the room. Relatively quiet at night although you could still hear street noise. Mornings were noisy, I think another poster mentioned the rooster, sure enough it started crowing at sunrise, luckily I turned in early both nights so getting up early wasn't a problem. Didn't see any bugs in the room and no mosquitoes despite no glass in the windows, just wooden louvres.
Anyway, I recommend this hotel for the value and the fact that I enjoy basic accommodations as long as they are clean.
