Only cold water in the shower, wifi did not work, staff was rude and made us pay even though our reservations were paid for and set up by the airlines earlier, our room door did not even lock, and it was in the middle of a very sketchy part of town. Although, the food was good.

If looking for a cheap and acceptable place to sleep for a night it is fine. They have secure parking, breakfast was included and ok. The air conditioners worked fine and the folks were friendly and helpful. Would stay again if just needed a place to crash for a night. We went for a concert at Altos de Chavon so... More

Good: The TV was fantastic, lots of premier films to watch from a choice of 30+ channels. The breakfast was fruit juice and a ham and cheese hot baguette - basic but good. The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable with clean sheets. The on-suite was dated but clean and there was a very quiet... More

I had the pleasure of staying here while on a mission trip with my wife and 7yo. Very clean and the AC works fabulously (very cold!), that's a huge plus in the DR! Food is 5-Star too! Felt very safe and secure. The owner Frank and his family are very accommodating. I will only stay here when in La Romano.

This hotel was a fun experience. The owner is quite an entertainer. The rooms were clean though oddly set up. They cooked great local food for our group. The location was conveniently near the boat landing to go to Catalina Island.

Our mission trip group stayed two nights here. The hotel staff was very efficient and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hot water took a long time to reach our room. The food was very local and tasted good. We felt very safe.

Located in the heart of town, with the crazy traffic you can expect. This is a budget hotel. You get what you pay for. Room is clean but bare-bone. Did not have hot water. No restaurant on the premises - just vending machines. OK Flat Screen TV though There was a dead eviscerated dog (traffic fatality I guess) on the... More

If you are looking for a pleasant, clean place to spend the night as you are traveling through the Dominican Republic, the Hotel Frano is for you. We found the price was right, the room large and clean and the restaurant served tasty Dominican meals. Another good thing about the Hotel Frano was its secure parking, providing us a worry-free...
