“ITS BETTER TO PAY THE EXTRA $20 AND GO TO THE HOWARD JOHNSON ACROSS THE STREET”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2009

I stayed in this place last month. THe place is just HORRIBLE!
1.) The place was dirty
2.) No carpet
3.) I was afraid to get in the pool cuz it was super dirty and I was scared that if I got in the water I would turn into a mutant.
4.)They don't offer any lotion or shampoo. just soap and cold water that takes 5 minutes to get warm.
5.) There was no phone in the room. It looks like it was ripped out of the wall leaving exposed wires.
6.) TV was only 13 inches. Pathetic!
7.) The building doesn't look up to code
8.) I had to go to the front desk for an iron. It didn't work.
9.) The A/C just blasted out air. Super hot or super cold are your choices.
10.)The bed was hard as a brick.

We showed up for our reservation and we shocked at the dirty conditions. The lobby was dingy and dirty, they did not offer us a locked closet to put our bags in. It was a scary situation because the hotel is on one side on a major highway and on the other side rooms opened direclty to the street, not into a main lobby and there was no security fence or other security measures to from people off the street attempting to break directly into your hotel room. In general the entire outside and lobby of the hotel looks incredibly run-down and gives you a feeling of insecurity. We cancelled our reservation immediately but they still charged us a canellation fee despite the fact that the misrepresented their place on the website. Moreover, the manager was not available for over a week, avoiding my calls and not answering a letter I sent them until a week later.

Granted $80 is cheap, but you should expect to have a certain level of cleanliness and feeling of security.

I found this hotel looking thru the list of small Inns in Puerto Rico, because everything else seemed too expensive. I will keep this simple.
Advantages:
- good price, under $80 per night
- friendly staff who knew places to visit/good restarants/ways to get to places
- free breakfast included (eve thou it is ONLY pastries, orange juice and coffee)
- the beach is across the highway - 5 minute walk
- several restaurant close by (El Taquito, BarraChina, Mi Casita) - 5-10 minute walk
- casinos are also close : 5-10 minute walk
- Walgreens/Super Market/ 7 Eleven - 5-10 minute walk
- Bus Station - 5 minute walk
- has small balcony, small pool, microwave and fridge in each room

Disadvantages:
- right by the highway- very noisy :(
- not that clean - found some hairs on the white bedsheets on the first night (obviously not ours)
- shower pressure was low- was hard to take a shower- not relaxing
- too far from Old San Juan - bus costs 75 cents each way, but it takes about 45 minutes to get there with all the stops; by taxi it costs $18-$19 each way, so it's too expensive to take the round-trip each day; for $40 extra a day, you can probably find something in Old San Juan
- besides a few casinos and the beach, not too many attractions to see in the area

Overall, it is ok if you are VERY budget oriented, otherwise I would stay in OLD SAN JUAN, that is the big attraction to Puerto Rico.

  • Liked — Staff knowledge, close beach
  • Disliked — Too far from Old San Juan, too noisy! highway and also AC were very noisy

I found this place after searching through many others hotels which had mad expensive rates. I think the taxi was more expensive after hoppin from hotel to hotel. Their rates did not pass $80.00 dollars with the tax included. In top of that the rooms where very clean and confortable. The staff is great and very kind and helpfull. I know i will always talk good about this hotel and defeneatly recommend it for budget minded travelers. Another great thing about the place is its location, very centric, closest hotel to the airport and very, very close to Old San Juan and at little steps from the beach. If you are looking for a place this is the place.

Villa Verde Inn - we booked it before arrival and we were surprised!
The hotel is small and nice! Our room was small but with fridge, private bath, balcony. It was clean and a nice location. The pool is also small but nice. Peter from the Front desk is really helpful, ask him for recommondations for dinner or sightseeing tips, he knows a lot!! Unfortunately there is no breakfast available, but a good location, next to the city highway, easy to arrive, beach of San Juan is only around 200 meters away!

Bathroom did not close, no good air coming though. highway has accidents that u can actually hear. (we think one moto bik might of died) Ants infested. Mold on the celiing made every morning a hassle to get up as you could not breathe. (this after 5 days we found out, no fan means no mold to breath) NO tv remote that worked, small tv. just a dirt dirty place

Sidenote. the place is lousy but the staff is super nice, very helpfull people.

I can't even begin to tell you the horror that this place is. It's bug infested, dirty, extremely old and unkempt, it's not near the beach at all but adjacent to the highway (the noise is unbearable). The inn does not look at all like it's portrayed on their website...maybe those pictures are 20 years old at best. The dust and dirt are ancient in the rooms, the bathrooms are very filthy (hair everywhere, toilets are soiled, tiles broken and never replaced, etc).

If you have children, please don't go there...it's beyond filthy...
