Good and comfortable; well located

This is a modest hotel, snuggled among the fancy hotels, with clean, comfortable rooms, a modest breakfast menu, and a helpful staff. I stayed for 8 days in January, 2013 (the web page wouldn't accept the new year) and found it to be a very good location. I don't know the cost, as it was part of a package deal, but the location was perfect for accessing the beach on one side, the lagoon on another side, the main tourist street of San Juan on a third side and bus routes to Old San Juan and Rio Piedras close by.

Avoid the restaurant "Latin Star" at all costs. Food is awful; service is worse. A good higher priced restaurant is "Buenos Ayres", while a good lower priced restaurant is "Cafe de Angel". Dennys is Dennys -- not good at all.

Cheap but that's no excuse

The room was not great. The female receptionist was very helpful but there was a nasty night concierge who accused my husband of trying to get an extra dollar when he told him the soda machine had swallowed his quarters. The TV was older than the hills. However they were nice enough to keep our luggage until our evening flight.

just a couple nights..

perfect for just a couple days. the complimentary breakfast is nice. the staff is not. not purposely rude in any way but just a sense of indifference. location is great and the room was super clean. if you need a clean place for a couple of days this is all that's needed. anything longer than 48hours and treat yourself to something nicer.

Sibling Trip to PR

We chose this as a cost-effective hotel/base-of-operations while staying in San Juan for about a week. It is a pleasant 40-ish minute walk from Old San Juan. Nice beach across the street. Sufficient restaurants in the area. It worked for us.

family getaway

My overall experience was really good. Parking was a bit of a hassle but the staff did a good job. One of the front desk staff at night was very rude and had a terrible attitude. He should be fired!

Perfect location

I was walking distance to the beach and that was all I needed. The only issue I had, was when I arrived on May 25,2014. The front desk stated they had NO record of my reservation. So I called Or-bitz and they resent an email to the office and when I awoke the next morning all was right with the world.

While you're there, you should try the restaurant Orozco's on Ashford. Good food at even better prices.

Awesome Puerto Rico Vacation

El Canario by the Lagoon is conveniently located in the heart of San Juan with shops and restaurants and beaches within walking distance. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. The hotel has free parking for its guest which can save you a bundle of money. The free breakfast is fantastic with enough food to eat like a king, with hot coffee, juice, cereal, fruits and lots of pastry. I would highly recommend this hotel to your family when you are visiting PR.

Go to visit the Capitol of Puerto Rico and Old San Juan. Fort El Morro is nearby. Good restaurants and lots of shops to buy things at Old San Juan.

Excellent location

The room was nothing special but you get what you pay for and for the price I was very happy. The hotel is in a great location and it is only a few minutes walk to the beach, restaurants, and bars. It is also only about a 10-15 min car ride to old San Juan. We didn't need to rent a car during our stay, but rather were able to use cabs and the local bus service for $0.75 a ride. They also have free breakfast every morning with some pastries, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee which was nice. If you don't mind not having the most luxurious room, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
