close to the strip

This hotel was close to all restaurants the strip and beach the only thing was one day they had no towels I asked and was toll all were dirty and that the 2 cleaning ladies had a conflict so the one on my floor couldn't ask the other room had no refrigerator I was supposed to have a queen bed ended up with 2 double beds ice machine was on 2nd floor with vending machine but I was on the 4th very inconvenient, if I was staying one night maybe this would be the right spot.

Eh hotel for the value

This hotel should have been worth maybe $50/night as opposed to the nearly $100 that I paid. Lobby was nice. Receptionist was nice. Elevator was the first sign that this might be a very cheap hotel. Then we entered the room. Bathroom was mediocre, but still clean and that is really what I care about. Bed was not exactly comfortable, but for a night's stay it was fine. The ceiling is something that would be in a conference room and the wall for the tv was just so off. Maybe I'm being picky, but I will be picky if I'm paying for at least a 3 star hotel. Then again, you have to take in the location. Hotel IS in Puerto Rico, a vacation hotspot and it is less than 10 minutes away from the airport. Definitely a plus. There is no airport shuttle, but the hotel can call you a taxi and they really do get there in less than 10 minutes. What made this hotel for us were the restaurants that were connected to it. Good food and not (too) overpriced. Overall, if you have a long layover like we did, a night's stay isn't bad. If you're having a long trip, invest in a more expensive hotel.

Coral By The Sea in Isla Verde is simply lovely for short stays. The staff is very friendly a courteous. Short distance ride from airport and close to restaurants and casinos. About a ten minute ride to the Malls.

Get what you pay for

What do you expect for a cheap hotel. AC was blowing directly on the bed. Shower was tiny with no floor towel so it leaked into the room. But it was cheap good place to just shower and sleep.

Perfect Airport Hotel

We stayed here for one night right before an early morning flight the next day. It was perfect for our needs. It was affordable, the rooms were in far better condition than some of the other reviewers have said (we had a decent bed, tv, nice large windows, a/c, etc). The bathroom was kinda small and there seemed to be a bit of sand in our bed... kind of random and wasn't too happy about that, but other than that I would recommend this to others.

Great location for the price

My husband and I stayed for one night while partying in San Juan. The location and the price were great. Not so great the noise from the airplanes as it is so close to the airport but overall great value
