No-frills, budget Carolina hotel with three pools near Isla Verde

The independently owned Coqui Inn has three large pools and is located on a busy tourist stretch in Isla Verde. That means the beach, world-famous shops, restaurants and casinos are a short walk away. The Coqui Inn is named for the song of Puerto Rico's most famous frog. The no-frills, budget hotel advertises its personality with huge, bright murals of the island's natural world on its exterior walls. A maze of paths links the hotel's three pools. There are cozy outdoor lounges in the courtyards and deck chairs surround the pools.

Highlights
  • Short walk to picturesque Isla Verde Beach, shopping and restaurants
  • Three large swimming pools
  • Two on-site restaurants
  • Family-friendly and budget-conscious
Rooms

The rooms at Coqui Inn are accessible via exterior corridors and offer either pool or street views. They all have either twin or double beds, air conditioning, private bathrooms with showers and free high-speed Wi-Fi access. Each room strays from the generic with features such as wrought iron and wood, teal-tiled headboards and tasteful touches of Caribbean-themed artwork. All of the rooms are non-smoking.

Features

On-site parking is complimentary. There is a game room located near the lobby. There are public computers with Internet access available. This hotel allows pets for an additional charge (call for details).

Dining

The Coqui Inn has two restaurants, a coffee shop and a poolside bar and lounge that is known for its garlic-style chicken mofongo, a local dish. Nikko Bar and Sushi offers a pan-Asian menu.

Recreation

There are three large pools for frolicking. Take a short walk over a pedestrian bridge to Isla Verde Beach.

Economical Funkiness!

I've stayed many times over the years and find myself loving the ambiance and relaxed atmosphere more and more! The rooms are comfortable and clean, the location near Isla Verde couldn't be better (for the price) and my little daughter just loves the pools! So close to the airport, too. A better value is very hard to fink.

Roaches

Do yourself a favor and spend a few more dollars and get a real hotel. Customer service was not to be found, rooms are outdated with Salvation Army furniture. Then there are the roaches you share the room with. Totally disappointed with my own people. G. Nieves

Quick Getaway

My husband and I went away for 3 days on a quick getaway wanted to be near everything walking distance in San Juan. The hotel was good for what we wanted given the time. Pool was clean right in the sun. Rooms were like little small efficiencies we wanted that PR feel close to residential but yet close to all restaurants that locals went to and casino by ESJ El San Juan casino. Airport 7 min away which was great and did not need a car. Hotel very basic offered coffee in the morning and thats really it. Staff were very accomodating helpful pleasant rooms need updating but for the price its fine.

Good location that's it!

For the location the price is good. But the room and hotel it's self seems more like a hostel ( with a personal room) we had no shower head and a brown dirty hole in our bed and someone leftover soap in the shower. The fridge worked and the staff was friendly good location and safe. They have a restaurant and bar but it never opened the whole week we stayed there.

Not Good

I had a very hard time finding it in the first place, then the first room they gave me had a large puddle of water on the floor when I first walked in and the toilet was discusting! The seconded room was just ok. I would never go there again!!

Coqui Inn Experience

The room we had was not cleaned on the first day at all. There was no phone in any room or by the pool in case of emergency. . The roof leaked and we had to move to another room. The second room was smaller with open wiring on the walls and electric receptacles painted over so they could not be used.

We ate at the Atlantica. Fabulous seafood restaurant. Great food & service. The Buñuelos de Bacalao were amazing. A little pricey but well worth it.

You like to live in a backyard shed? This is the place for you!

Omg I must say, first of all their are bugs. Then the hotel has no air! When he gives u the key, you walk down an alley way and go to a room that looks like a shed!!! You can't lock your room it's actually a padlock! When your inside you dead bolt the door, which inside you can see the whole frame of the outside!! I grabbed my stuff and actually went to the best western hotel in condado which I must say was beautiful! Good luck to that 0- star hotel

Fallback Position

As a cheap last night stand near the airport and Isla Verde beach, this place is just OK. It's on the wrong side of the highway, but close to good local's restaurants like the ESPANA bakery & deli. If you get a good price, you'll be satisfied.
