Roach motel dont do it. Rarely cleaned. Air conditioner leaks water. Unpleasant vibe there

The Discovery Hotel is just the perfect place to stay while in SD. Just a short walk away from all the Colonial sites plus all the inter-city bus stops are just minutes away by foot (Parque Enriquillo). The staff here are all great people, excellent wifi and A/C. The outside terrace and swimming pool are great touches as well!

Excellent hotel in the heart of the colonial city within walking distance to the Enriquillo Park transportation hub, supermarkets and many eateries. The staff is very pleasant and the wifi, A/C and cable TV all work very well!

I was refused my room as I was told that they are not associated with orbitz....I would like my money refunded as I did not get what I paid for, and it wasn’t my fault!

Take a picture of the room when booking! I booked a good sized room with a big bed but they tried to put me in a room with a tiny bed and 2 feet around it! I said no way I was going to take that! So they showed me a litter bigger one but still not what I was shown on the Orbitz website. Room was dirty (hairs everywhere) with old AC and old TV. Shower fixture was broken though I managed to use it.

Nice hotel close to the historial center of Santo Domingo. Clean rooms with good air condition. It has a little pool good for kids. Good attention at the reception.

never been to a place, where you have to changed room so many times, A/C doesn't work in any of the rooms, after 3 changes I decide to let it go, Staff is HORRIBLE, one of the nightshift front desk yelled at me, because after so many changes I asked to speak with the manager the day shift look at you like if you own them money and no helpful at all, refrigerator in the room was always leaking, they don't leave you extra toilet paper, that's counting if they go to clean your room, everything is so dirty, bathroom, balcony, room. bathroom had a really bad smell. couldn't even sleep because the room was always so hot, and the noise outside felt like if you were out on the street. Wi-Fi never worked, there was no free parking, had to park outside and in one occasion my car was tow, elevator didn't work most of the time. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anybody, don't waste your time or money.
