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.

Rudest staff in Puerto Rico

The location of the hotel was perfect, but the staff went out of their way to be totally unprofessional. The front desk was manned by either a female that had no clue what she was doing or one of two men that simply did not care to help and would avoid helping you when possible. The parking situation was bad but not as bad as they made it seem. The elevator is going to break and fall anytime now. And if your room is anywhere near the elevator door you can expect to wake up every time the doors open because it sounds like the doors are ripped open and the elevator abruptly stops, drops, then stops again. Stayed there three days before the cruise and again three days after and both experiences were terrible. One room the shower produced a small drip/stream to shower with while the second room was directly in front of the elevator. The room wasn't clraned when we checked in on the first night so when we asked for sheets we were told they didn't have any and could only change or room for a room with twin beds. We had to sleep in a bed with no sheets not to mention a dirty room. What else... Oh yeah don't stay there.

Good location and value

The hotel is well located one block from the beach and close to the bus that goes to Old San Juan. The elevator is noisy and there is no carpeting in the hallways so sounds reverberate at night. The rooms are small but comfortable, however, there was little water pressure and the water was not very hot at times. Breakfast was convenient and the hotel very clean. If you are looking for a well located, low price hotel, this is a good deal.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Old San Juan is a short, inexpensive bus ride from the Condado area (don't try to walk it). Two days are needed to visit the old city. Be sure to leave a few hours for the El Morro Fort.
