I like this hotel, its clean, the beds, however are hard. Could use an upgrade. No ice machines anywhere in hotel, or available anywhere in the hotel. Be aware, if you do not speak Spanish, I did not meet any English speaking members of the staff, but not a big concern.

The reason I'm giving this hotel 2 stars is not based on my expectations but on my experience. This hotel is located on a great location and has so much potential to be a 5 star hotel but it has so many issues. 1) understaffed 2.) lack of ICE machines; none of them were working and you had to go...

The amenities this hotel offers are great, but the accommodations are severely lacking. The rooms are dated. The bathrooms are confusing with the sink/vanity outside in a dressing like area. The towels were dingy, the beds were impossibly hard, there was no clock and not even hotel imprinted paper or pen. They have an alleged key card system where if...

Stayed a night at the plaza, the wait staff was exceptional. The rooms were clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. I liked Joey's pizza in the back lobby area, the bar was simple yet nice and offered great music from the jute box. Nice view of the city and very spacious area.

I stayed here on a work trip and I was honestly appalled by the condition of the rooms. The bed linens have an odd smell to them and did not seem washed. I brought my own pillow case thank God. The towels were a joke! It was like using sandpaper on my face. On top of this the room was...

My family and I have stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel Resort & Convention Center a few times. Prices are reasonable and the rooms are clean. There is a restaurant in the lobby that has always been happy to prepare my fresh catch of the day.

We stayed during the lowest of pre-Christmas lows, with very few other guests there, and they were consistently nice and service was good throughout. I've travelled off-season to other places where almost everything was shut down and a skeleton crew took the opportunity to nap. They were totally nice -- if we wanted the hot tub fired up, they'd do...

Great place to relax and enjoy quality family time. Steps away from the sand and water. They also have ATV rentals and Jet skies. A short drive back into town where you can find plenty of good restaurants.
