This is by far the worst motel I have stayed in my entire around the world traveling life. Pics and stories will be deceiving and if you don't like it well guess what? This rat packed hotel got your monies and won't refund you not even a thank you note lol

HI: Is the second time that you submit the same review since May 2015. I did not know what is your intention. When you made the reservation was very clear our localization, that this is not a big hotel, that we are not in Old San Juan. You paid for one night 63 usd plus tax for a room, what...

Let me begin by saying that I had an excellent stay here, so the 3 stars have nothing to do with my stay but with other factors that I'm sure other travelers will agree we all consider essential to staying at a hotel. SUMMARY (for those who don't like to read extensively detailed reviews): We enjoyed our whole trip to...

Good morning. Thank you for the review and for your visit. Sorry for the lady that did not bring a nice welcome to you. That night was the first day working alone and she was nervous. We feel sorry about the situation and we will work hard to improve that. Was a pleasure, to have you here. We hope to...

The Dreams Hotel is located in an older section of San Juan. There are a few local restaurants on the same street, as well as a small grocery store and a couple of "bars." I appreciated having some conveniences within a very short walking distance. The rooms are very basic and there is no elevator; the staff was more than...

Thanks for the time for the review. We work hard to keep our rates as low as we can and to bring a very clean facility. We are a low budget hotel. With the global economical situation most of the people are on a budget, looking for a clean place to stay, because next day they will wake up early...

Arrived late and left early so can only really comment on the room - a $60 single which had a comfy bed, clean bathroom with shower, good wifi and TV. Also a little fridge. Check-in took a while due to an inexperienced but friendly clerk. She came up to show me the inner security door and how it functioned. The...

The owner Elena does an outstanding job running this property. I found this hotel on Tripadvisor, and like other travelers had a great experience. We stayed at this property for 3 days...on 2 separate occasions. The first time we were on the 2nd floor. All the tile and paint on the 2nd floor are new. The room was spotlessly clean!...

Thank you so much for the review and the nice explanation of us and the area. Is good for other people to know that we are three blocks away from the University of PR, and plenty of students are here. Thanks for let people know that in this area food is less expensive that in touristic areas and the cleanliness...

My experience with the Dreams Hotel was lacking. Upon arrival, I found it extremely difficult to park the rental car and had to use street parking twice during a three day stay. Check-in was easy after I located the staff - there is a very small point-of-sale style minimal check-in followed by steep stairs that will be difficult for guests...

In both English and Español, respectively. As a first time visitor who lives in mainland U.S., I was a bit anxious when going through the hotel selection process in our visit to Puerto Rico —specially because we were looking for the smaller, more down-to-earth options in the San Juan Metropolitan area. I am glad we paid attention to the positive...

Definitely worth saying here and taking the tren urbano to downtown if you want to save a lot of money. Had hot water, air conditioning, tv, and wifi, which all worked but the wifi was slow time to time. The towels were a little old, but besides that it was a very clean room. I saw in many other reviews...

Prior to a cruise, my family stayed at Dream's Hotel for the night. The hotel was ideal and fit all our needs.
