It was only $69 for a double (twin beds) and $60 for a single. Walking distance to the beach (5 min). Only 10 rooms, so you have the pool to yourselves. The pool is small, but big enough to cool off after a hot day with a number of deck chairs to read and relax in. There is a small kitchenette to save on meals. The room looked like it hadn't been updated since the 50's, but it was clean and the bed was more comfortable than it looked. I gave my friend (he was on a stricter budget than me) on the twin beds, but I'm a big guy and I slept fine, so I saved the cash and they weren't bad. Angela, the owner, is friendly and helpful. It's a short walk (less than 5 min) to the bus to old San Juan and there are a number of restaurants nearby.
