The room are clean there's only one microwave outside in the hallway. no ironing and coffee maker. Restaurant is ok. The people where very pleasant.

Nice staff and food is good and plus close to the beach... would go to the same hotel again

Hotel is right off the main road and pretty close to all the needed shops, restaurants. Hotel staff were helpful.

we had an inexpensive room in a courtyard--clean, minimal amenities, served the purpose. Staff not particularly warm.

This place was very helpful and centralized for your shopping and night life, and their restaurant had great food directly across the street. Friendly and helpful staff, little bit stiff bed but overall great experience.

room were clean. Staff friendly. Great for overnight stays or road trip.

It was a great place to stay. I witch it did have more restaurants choices, but the one the hotel had was very good. the location (northwest) was great, do to the places I was looking to visits. Jose

It was a very good place to stay, with a great location and excelent amenities. The restaurant offered a very good service and delicious food. We were accomodate in a villa with a little kitchen. Also, the hotel is pet friendly that we didn't have problems with our dog. You can continue yoir trip for road No. 2 and enjoy a beautiful stamp of our island.

They have very friendly staff and helpful as well. Pool is great. Room was very clean. Bed mattress was hard.... they could be a little more comfortable (softer), but it could be just me. Overall everything was great.

It was awesome...we had a great time! The kids enjoyed the pool.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean with great AC and a small refrigerator. They have ice at the desk and a microwave in the hallway for your use. The Cafe across the street really did have good coffee and a fast, good breakfast. They also have some fruits, drinks, snacks, their own baked good and bread! We would definitely go back.

There are not many hotels in this area, so not many options. This place was comfortable and the cafe down stairs was a good place to eat. It's easy to find, right next to a major road - PR 2 . No elevator but the wifi worked, cable worked and good hot water. The room smelled a little but appeared clean. I'd stay there again if you need a place to sleep for 1 to 2 nights near Arecibo. I wouldn't stay over 2 nights though.

If you plan on visiting the Observatory, Camuy's cave, and La Cueva del Indio it is an excellent location. The hotel was clean and safe. It is also not far from Utuado and Isabela...

It is always a pleasure to visit and stay at hotel. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The restaurant has incredible food and their menu is outstanding. The waiters are awesome. I would recommend to anyone. There aren't many amenities but the great service makes up for anything lacking. We are back but looking forward to our next vacation!

The rooms are very clean and tha staff is very nice.

Quick night stay prior to heading into the mountains for outdoor activities and visiting the observatory. Go across the street to El Buen Cafe for the mofongo, the fried plaintain-based dish of Puerto Rico.

The room and bathroom was clean. Maid service is great. Staff was nice but can use improvement some more than others. Restaurant has great food. Pool was clean. A little high in price but if I had to compare price with cleanliness I would pay difference. My choice was based on location, service & cleanliness & over all my expectations were met. Will consider for future.

This hotel was recommended because it was the closest to a conference I was attending. I was more than satisfied, particularly with the size and cleanliness of the room and the extraordinary kindness of the staff, especially the maid. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but a good one, owned by the same company, is just across a side street. It is open from 5:30 in the morning to 10 at night and offers a wide variety of food and also does room service. The hotel is just off the main road around the island, route 2. The advantage is that it is easy to find, has easy access to the expressway, and is convenient for exploring the North shore and interior of the island, such as the famous caves and the observatory. The location is not scenic and a car is a must.
