4/5 Good

Very layed back and friendly. It was a perfect place to overnight.

For an overnight stay, this place is decent. The people were friendly and helpful. Only real criticism, they advertise the pool, but it is poorly maintained. At the price, we were not expecting any luxuries, but when I read that the pool existed, we thought that we might use it. I suggest deleting any reference to the pool until the maintenance improves.

5/5 Excellent

A great affordable stay!

We love Dwight, the owner. He made our stay comfortable, friendly and like a home away from home. His English and Spanish are impeccable. We enjoyed our first visit so much we booked another stay. Overall a great experience for a very fair price.

Fair to ok

This was a stay for one night after arriving in on a late flight. The room was reasonably clean but the shower backed up quickly and the pool in the hotel's pictures was tiny and green with algae. Ok for a quick, inexpensive over night stay but nothing special.
