The entrance to this hotel--down a warren of narrow streets and next to a derelict concrete building--gives it a slightly gritty feel. But if you prefer a place with character to the sterile luxury high-rises, this is a place you would like. The hotel is steps from the Isla Verde beach, where you can stroll or rent a beach chair for $4. The bar/restaurant area is right on (over, really) the ocean.Try the Coco Loco and make sure you watch the bartender prepare the drink-- with a machete! The continental breakfast was modest, but we ate dinner there as well and had a good meal. Rooms have been updated and are very clean, and each of ours had a small refrigerator. The restaurant has a wifi hotspot. Parking was not an issue--if there was not a space right in front, the hotel had a valet to park the vehicle. We walked in this area at night both on the streets and on the beach and did not feel unsafe. Short walk to the glitzy El San Juan Hotel and Casino. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
