This hotel is nicely located in a funky neighbourhood near a great surfing beach lined with good, inexpensive restaurants. The rooms were very basic, but clean. That's the good news. The bad news is: the pool was NASTY, so dirty you couldn't see the bottom. The day we left a young man was cleaning the scum ring with a cleaner so toxic he had to wear a scarf over his mouth and nose to avoid breathing in the fumes. The cleaner was dripping into the water while he worked. There was construction all around, with the necessary supplies piled in front of the ground floor rooms. The "breakfast" that was included was 1 and 1/2 slices of toast and a cup of coffee. On principle we didn't eat there at all during our 4 day stay. We wouldn't stay here again, as we do enjoy a swim in the pool, especially in places where it is unsafe to swim in the ocean. We didn't appreciate being ripped off on the breakfast deal. We have stayed at other budget Mexican hotels and have had great breakfasts included, so we know what to expect. Wouldn't recommend this place. There are several hotels in the neighbourhood, most of which looked nicer than this. We collected brochures and checked prices and they are comparable or a little higher.
