New is relative, isn't it? Like New kids on the block or New Jersey or New Coke. This hotel has that same newness as in 1972 new. What a cess pool! Oops, my apologies to cess pools everywhere for the insult. What would really make this hotel new is either a hurricane or 100 gallons of gas and a road flare. Cruddy rooms, skinny "queen" beds made of marbles or rocks, filthy rooms and very deceptive room photos on the internet. Remember Elwood Blues room from the movie "The Blues Brothers?" Well this is similar to that only less palatial and more gauche. I know, I know, it is very inexpensive but for $239.00 a night, I expected a little more. Ocean view room? Great! If I could only see through the 1/4 " of crud on the windows, left over from the 1930s when this dumpster was built. Oh, don't expect the air conditioning to work. I got it down to 78 when it was 80 outside. Grrrrreeeeaaaat. The answer from the front desk? They sent up a fan. Oh, it would help if you are able to speak Spanish since everyone else here, including the guests, speaks it. Good luck asking for a towel from the maid. Stay far, far away from this "new" hotel.
