The hotel is also known by the name Cadillac hotel. The location is in direct proximity of the beach with a nice walking area along the beach. There is no direct beach access. A bodega is in very close walking distance. The entrance is located multiple steps above the street level. There is another (almost hidden) step at the door, so entering the hotel is very inconvenient. The front door area does not make a good impression. The multiple men in dark not exactly clean blue shirts stand on the steps and do nothing most of the time. They are very helpful with luggage, though. Front desk staff is rude, but effective. There is a very small coffee-shop in the lobby and free coffee is served in the lobby area. The room was acceptable. However, one has to crawl into the closet to open the safe. Windows don’t open. The walls were somewhat dirty. Cleaning seemed generally acceptable, but there was dirt under the bed. There is a construction going on at the back of the hotel, so the “ocean view” rooms face the construction and – depending on the room – one may see not more than the construction (and no ocean). The swimming pool was closed due to construction. The hotel offered free pool in a place, which was few blocks away.
