These rooms were dated & worn, but clean. The bathroom sink & counter seemed like they were part of the kitchenette. The inside of the small dishwasher was very rusty. Only 1 shampoo packet for 2 people. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. It might have been better for an extended stay, at least you would know to bring your...

Let me start by telling you of the excellent service that was afforded at this hotel. It has a great restaurant and Sports Bar, as as a great swimming pool and hot tub. Also, a unique set of rooms come with two complete bedrooms and their bathrooms, with a kitchenette and lovely den/living room, all as one hotel room. Great!!!!!...

for a bit over $50 a night (off season rates), we got a room on the 7th floor, with a wonderful view of the beach from the balcony or from inside through the wall of windows facing the north. Refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffeepot all provided, as well as dishes and utensils! queen size bed plus a small table...

The worst I can say is the wifi was spotty, an annoying blot on an otherwise fine experience for a guy who has to work while on holiday. The staff was nice, the rates were good and the room was clean. I'd do it again. Two side notes: if you're thinking about visiting Mexico via Matamoros, don't. Or at least...

I was very happy with my room. I was on the 7th floor and could see the beach and lights of the city at night. It's not real fancy but what do you expect for the price. It's the best price of any rooms on the island. I've read older review and didn't find it smelling of mold or mildew....

Reserved two nights through the hotel for the beach bum special. Great rate might I add. Arrived early to check in and we were allowed 2 hours earlier! Hotel inside is dated, but clean. Staff was superb that we dealt with. Lobby is huge with large screen TV and pool table with a great view of the ocean. Elevators worked...

This hotel is one of the best values on the island. The rates are tied to the season and off season rates can not be beat. It is very clean, comfortable, well set up with full kitchens in many of the rooms. Yes, it is an older hotel but has been updated and well taken care of. The staff was...

My wife and I were hesitant to stay from the reviews we read. They were totally wrong. Of course rooms are not 5 star quality but for under $100 you can't beat it. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Best was the beautiful view. Would definitely recommend.

So my boyfriend and I came here for my birthday. The hotel is a lot more run-down and older than I thought it was going to be. The rooms were just a little out dated, and the bathrooms were very small (I'm very picky about my bathroom anywhere I go/stay/live). The view was absolutely amazing, and the walk to the...
