This place was clean enough. First they put us in a corner room with zero windows. They switched us to the room at the end on top floor which seemed like a no brainer but then we figured it out. It seemed great at first but then discovered the tv volume ever so slowly got louder until it was unbearable... More

I was not as overjoyed as other reviewers, primarily bc i didnt find the staff to be very warm. There are many budget hotels in TJ, but this one can be booked online and is rripadvisor-approved. Ill stay there again bc given all the foregoing, its a very easy option in TJ. WIFI 50%

This place would be comparable to a Motel6 in the USA. Its not fancy and the rooms are tiny and old but not bad for the price they charge. The bathrooms look and feel newer. The shower had hot water running at a decent pressure and the staff cleans the room well. The beds are old as are the bed... More
