Very small rooms and bathroom. You get what you pay for. The rate was supposed to be $62 per night. But charged $120 per night cause of two adult. It’s supposed to be charge by room not per person

It says the breakfast is included but its not you only get 10% off of the restaurant attached to the hotel and the hotel is more like a motel style.

The location is wonderful so close to the beach and old San Juan. Coneviently located near food and necessities. However, the facility is in need of repair. I had issues with door locks, cable inop, and poor cleaning ceiling and behind TV. All things considered definitely most affordable on the condado.

The only saving grace is that it is steps from the beach. So if that is what you want and nothing else,then this your place

close to beach

Pros: close to the beach,,,,Price was OK.
Cons: Building kind of falling apart.
Location: Plenty of cafes near by.
Arrived there before our 3:00 P.M. time and they did hold our bags in their office. If you want a room that is JUST a room, this is perfect... Don't expect much.

Not very inviting at all.

The photos online make it look acceptable for a last minute place to stay, which is what we had to do. Once we were there we found that it was hardly acceptable at all. I've stayed in many basic motels and this place was worse than a Motel 6 in rural Tennessee. The staff, the two who we actually encountered, were both very nice and helpful and that was a plus. I hate leaving bad reviews, but I had to for this one.

Roaches

Small rooms, not very clean with roaches galore. I felt dirty so I checked out 2 days early.

A place to crash, don't expect much service

Pros: location
Cons: everything else
We first had a first floor room that was sort of a dump. We got a better room with a bigger bed. The location is great, but it is a cheap beach hotel. The staff was OK. No kleenex in room, no fridge, bare bones. Had to beg for towels. Other than a cheap place to stay in a nice location in Condado.

Sandy Beach Hotel

Pros: nothing
Cons: tear it down
Location: in unsafe alley, nothing to do
Worst hotel I have ever been in. I would not lodge my dog here. Dirty, unsafe, unfriendly staff. Coils coming through the bed, dirty room in disrepair, cockroaches, safe had no lock, one hanger in closet, ran out of toilet paper, 2 small towels in bath, water broke mid shower leaving us with a soap film for a day, no telephone in room. Asked for a refund or to move with no help. Ruined our entire vacation!!!!

Pros: Location
Cons: Needs renovations
If your funds are low, this is the place for you. Within walking distance from the beach with a restaurant and club on each side. CVS and Walgreens also within walking distance. This is a bare necessity hotel. It could use some renovations. You can tell that this place has been in business for quite some time. The room was clean. I didn't see any bugs or rodents. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and families. I am planning on staying here again.
