Nice clean room. Pleasant staff. Nothing fancy but all we needed was an inexpensive place to rest and sleep. Close to airport and centrally located so u can visit the island. Beach is near as is San Juan. The owner, Robert and his wife, were very accommodating to me as I needed a first floor since I can't climb stairs.... More

Just to recap what the management posted. 1) Vivid nightlife- yes, I would agree all night long with car alarms, people screaming and constant motion. Management was very accurate on that issue. 2) Gunshot vs motorcycle- I'm quite certain I can tell one from the other. I rode a bike for years and own a gun. My suggestion would be... More

Hi Debbie: I just want to add to your review that you have a motorcycle, and also me, if they remove the piece that control the sound they motorcycle sound like gun shots. In PR, laws for guns are not the same as USA that you can by them in Walmart and plenty of store. Here if you heard a... More

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend with my family, our flight got in quite late but we had no problems checking in when we got there. Room was comfy and spacious. Right next door is a bar where we were able to get really good pizza and some cold beers to wash them with. Enjoyed my stay.

Very sketchy area lots of activity around this business. No washcloths for showering and no elevator. Heard gunshots in the parking lot when we were in bed and a woman screaming. I will say the rooms are clean but outdated. The air conditioners were mounted high on the wall and did not cool the room very quickly. Every cab driver... More

Good morning: The hotel is located in a very crowded area, where university students frequent. There is also a vivid night life. Even an abundance of cars, trucks, and motorcycles are up and down the avenue at every hour. I'm sure that the shots you heard was certainly motorcycles. University parties aren't always kept on the low. AC units are... More

Hi, booked this for one night lay over before heading off island. Excellent room, nice lobby close to a great breakfast place which was included in our stay. Owner gave us vouchers to check luggage in old San Juan or would have let us leave our luggage for the day with her. Would stay there again

I stayed at the hotel for a week and I can recommend it for many reasons, the treatment of employees, hospitality, spacious and comfortable rooms, cleanliness, safety and especially the price. Good price for everything in four-star hotels provide even a good morning and give you charge the trip

Good, economical place to stay in SJ away from the touristy beach front hotels. Clean & well-furnished room with small fridge & microwave & Wifi & decent A/C. Walking distance to outdoor marketplace. IF you want to be near the locals and not other tourists, this hotel is the place.
