1st - website says free parking, when we arrived $15.00 per day 2nd TV was not working and they could not fix it. Pillows were flat, and beds were uncomfortable.

The hotel was what exactly said it will be in the discription. Walking distance from the beach, parks, and restaurants. Awesome area and friendly people I would definitely stay there again. I wish it had a better balcony view. Other than that it's a good hotel for the price its given. Especially if your out and about and just go to the hotel to sleep.

This is a simple quaint hotel. This hotel is centrally located to Condado. You get great value for the price. Just don't set your expectations high to that of the chain hotels.

Puerto Rico Getaway

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 21, 2015
The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice. This is in no way a 3 star motel. I paid extra for a view of the lagoon which was mostly obscured by the Comfort Inn next door. The neighborhood was questionable with homeless sleeping close by. The breakfast was minimal coffee, juice, rolls and had to go out to eat breakfast. Doors are the old key type. I found the ad for this motel extremely misleading.

Attractions

Old San Juan is about 2 miles from there.

I usually stay at the San Juan Airport Hotel however they keep increasing there rates so I decided to find another similar hotel so I tried El Canario by the Lagoon however the taxi cost me $20.00 each way and I had to wait for my bags and haul them up 4 flight of stairs. The cost for El Canario Hotel worked out to equal the cost for the San Juan Airport Hotel so I will be going back to the overpriced San Juan Airport Hotel with its very small rooms.

Ministerial Trip

My experience at this hotel was one in which my needs were met, and I was in somewhat comfort. The view I had from the balcony was not one to boast about. I was facing another building which discouraged my spending time on the balcony. My hotel experience had no problems and the staff was very helpful in all manners.
