“Cheap, great location, working wifi but loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were perfectly happy with the cabinas, the owner and the manager were super nice and we had a nice stay. We were walk ins and there was parking late at night.
There was a huge safe in the room, but enough for a backpack in case you are traveling with a laptop and a big camera but don't want to drag them out to dinner: it's well worth finding places like this.
We did have a storm come through and water leaked from above and from the screen window and below the door. We lost power overnight of course, and the wifi did not get restored until much later (not a hotel issue). But it was a decent signal for CR when it did work.
It is a loud location, right near the disco: this was shut down on the storm night, so we gained a bit of quiet this way! Just be prepared for a bunch of foreign youths playing cards and partying and you are all set.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Stayed here on a group trip with 7people. I was in a room of three. The room overlooked the sea and was a quick walk to the beach. They did have a hot water heater for the shower. The bathroom was pretty basic and a bit smelly. The beds were just OK and the towels were old and frayed. Beware as this place is next to Chicos bar and the music is loud. The three of us had a lot of trouble sleeping. The was a safe in the room however it seems that all safes use the same key. When we went to ask at the office for a key to the safe, they pulled it from a basket of keys and none were marked. When requested, they did bring an extra floor fan. No A/C in our room. Best feature was a set of three hammocks in front of the rooms.

As soon as my mom and I got off bus into Montezuma there was the nicest lady that gave us a flyer and walked us right down the street to the hotel. She gave us tips on what places were good to eat and introduced us to people along the way. Our room is right on the water, and they offer rooms with kitchens. Free WIFI, mini-fridge, fan, and bathrooms inside the rooms with hot water! Right next to chico's bar and all the shops and grocerys. The bar can get kind of loud but so can the waves crashing on the rocks. Hammocks area in garden with clothes lines, and patio areas with chairs outside each room. For $25 a night this is a great deal, we stayed longer and went to cabo blanco nature reserve. My only complaint is clumpy pillows, no biggie, I would recommend this place to anyone.

Awesome location right on the beach in Montezuma. Stayed last year after having stayed 7 years ago and the price was still the same! We had a top floor room with great views from the balcony. The town is awesome! So quiet yet so much to do. And Mal Pais is just short drive.

This a great cheap hotel! People that complain about the creature comforts are spending to much time in there rooms! You should only be in your rooms for sleep, there is so much to do in the area! The hotel is no frills but that's a good thing. Good location good staff and a good price!

Great ocean view right in the center of town. They got hammocks and a gift shop. Clean and great service. However, it is right next to the bar which will play super loud music. Get rooms 3 or 6 unless you plan on joining the party next door!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

the shower was hot..the view was AMAZING! hammocks on the outside to lay on.. I could even disregard the fact that I was blarred to sleep from music in the club on the street over..It was 40 bucks for 3 beds and we were ON THE BEACH! But.... i am sorry this is unacceptable.. In the middle of the night last night I got up to use the restroom and the floor was flooded in the restroom. Upon inspection this morning.. the floor was covered..and it was so gross..I had to stand on the toilet to brust my teeth.. because when we put the white towels down on the floor to sop up the "water" it was yellow!!!! We looked up and the mysterious yellow fluid had dried as it was coming down the ceiling all over half the bathroom... soooo disgusting.... it was under what I assume were plumbing pipes... and the people in the next cabin said their bathroom was flooded too and that it smelt of mildew previously...

Room Tip: we stayed in room one and our friends in room 2..stay away!
