great value steps from the beach

Great location about 20 feet from Condado beach, simple but comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Parking for check in was a bit difficult on the street but they have a deal with the parking garage across the street for $18 per day. Park there first and they will validate the ticket.

Will definitely stay here again

This hotel was great!! Yes it wasn't the cleanest hotel I've stayed at, but I payed less than 100$ to stay 10 feet from the beach. Me and my girlfriend and two friends stayed here for springbreak and can't wait to go back. In an awesome location, staff was awesome everything was awesome. There's an awesome private roof that was an added bonus. Go go go

Post Cruise

This was a one night post cruise stay for 3 couples. We were very happy with our one night stay. It is an older Hotel, but it is what I would expect out of an old Hotel built in the 1940's or earlier. The staff was very nice. One couple didn't like the look of their sheets and requested they change them which they did immediately. They are in the process of updating their TV's. We had an older model with a missing remote, the other 2 couples had new flat screen TV's. We enjoyed the outside courtyard where they served their Continental Breakfast. We arrived before check-in and they held our bags for us while we walked around and allowed us to wait on the roof top terrace, which was very relaxing. There are Souviner shops and restruants all within walking distance. There is a Walgreens on the corner, too. The best part is that the beach is a few steps away. We all agreed we would stay here again.

Great Hotel!!

This hotel was soooo nice and I want to recommend it to my friends!! All Stuffs were friendly and location was really good (less than 30sec to the beach!) Continental break first and room were ok. Totally, its good hotel with this price range.

Simple beach hotel

It is a budget hotel right by the beach. Its everything I expected it to be, the location was great to see nightlife and also go to the beach during the day. We booked a double bed but got 2 twins. The staff was nice though.

Good Deal

We only stayed in the hotel to sleep. We spent all day on the beach or on excursions. The rooms are small, but they get the job done. You go to San Juan for the beach, not the hotel. Definately a cheap way to have a nice vacation.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

You have to get out of the tourist areas to get really cheap food and beer. The local spots will look rundown, but the food is delicious. Also, Punto de Visto is a restuarant by the ship port in old san juan. It has great prices and delicious food.
