Could have been much better

The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. And the rooftop breakfast view was pretty nice and it is within walking distance of the beach, bars (Go to Orale Guey on Ashford Ave!), and restaurants. However, the room was very small. Our view from the window was of a disgusting looking roof with debris and trash. The hallway leading to our room was very dim and smelled like mildew. There were pretty much no other amenities other than wi-fi and a lackluster complimentary breakfast.

Facilities

Practically nothing advertised for this hotel worked. The wifi simply would not function outside the lobby. The signal for the TV in the room was horrible. In the end, the alarm clock didn't even work. While the staff was extremely friendly, and tried their best to be helpful, there is only so much they could do. Overall, I would say that if no other rooms were available anywhere in San Juan, this hotel would be OK.

Great experience!

This place is clean and organized. Its two blocks away from a very nice beach and I did like this area.It is close to the Airport. Its close to Old San Juan,as well, But you still have to get a cab or bus... Unless you rent a car. I do recommend this Hotel! Friendly staff. They serve breakfast from 7am until 10am, so we do not have to wake up that early. AC does work. The rooms are neat and comfy. I had a great stay indeed. No complaints, I do wanna go back to Puerto Rico! I would stay in this hotel again for sure. The Locals are the Nicest people in the whole world :-) Super happy!

"Friendly and helpful staff"

My friends and I really enjoyed our trip to San Juan and our stay at Quality Inn Hotel. The staff is very friendly, they are always there to help you with directions and recommendations for sightseeing. The breakfast is complimentary, but the only thing is that it is always the same menu. I will definitely stay at the same hotel next time I go to Puerto Rico.
