“I hate”
Reviewed January 23, 2008

The experience in this hotel was terrible.
The bed was so small, the pillows were little and solid and and there was only cold water. I just hate it !
Stay away from this hotel if you don´t want to loose your money and time.

you don't have any other place to stay and it is the last hotel with availability. Check in if you just need to crash for the night.... and don't expect much else...

Tiny and poorly decorated room. It was a mix of a motel and a oversized jail room. Just look at the picture. Sneakers are acting as weight to block the air from the central A/C.

We were very disappointed. The room was very small, shabby, with barely a double bed. Their asking price was $66, with the pensionado discount it was $44. One computer made up their free internet. We moved down the street to the Cancun. It was a much nicer, cleaner room for $15, yes $15. It's all about value.

The service was very good. They were waiting for me at the airport with a sign. I thought all the staff there was friendly. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet. It isn't the best neighborhood but I felt safe walking down to the ocean, which is about 3 blocks away. There are a few street walkers but I didnt see them bother anyone unless someone approached them. I would have rather been closer to the modern casinos but a cab ride was only $2. Do not pay much more then that, if someone wants more money because you look like a gringo, just walk down the street and raise your hand another cab will stop within 30 seconds. The rooms were small but mine was clean. I didn't have a window and I was told by the other guests I was lucky because street noise woke them early. For the price and what they had to work with I think it was a pretty good hotel, the biggest problem was location. If I had to do it again, I would probably try to find a hotel in a better part of town but if i couldnt get a room I would definatly return to the Roma Plaza. Just make sure you get a room without a window.

Bad part of town. Tiny, uninspiring room. Worst shower I've ever used. Smallest & thinnest towels I've ever seen (including gym class). Restaurant O.K. Service Good.
