Nice hotel, it’s divided in 2 buildings, we stayed on the one located above the restaurant (and cafeteria), that one has the new (or remodeled) rooms. The hotel doesn’t include breakfast, but the cafeteria that’s on the 2nd building is good, good food and good prices too, so, you don’t need to get out looking for a place to eat, unless you want to. The room was big enough and clean. The staff was very friendly. On the first building they’ve the pool, but we didn’t have time for that. It's a good place to spend a few nights and enjoy the different attractions you can find on nearby cities (Arecibo, Lares, Camuy).
The only thing that I didn’t like is that the hotel is in front of the main road, very close, so, the location of my room was facing that way, and at night (from time to time) you hear a lot of noise from the road, so, if you had the chance, ask for the rooms on the back, the noise will be less.
Also, keep in mind that this is not a beach hotel. If you’re looking for good beaches you’ll have to drive west, which will be like 30 miles or so. But, if you want to visit interesting places and/or like nature, from there you could drive to different locations like Lares, Utuado, Arecibo, Camuy and enjoy from beautiful places.
Other than that, the hotel is good; I’ll recommend it to anyone.
