This is an old hotel and not very well kept up. The room was fairly clean but looked pretty run down. The parking is not very convenient and is a do it yourself thing in a very small and crowded parking lot. The location is convenient to the Isla Verde, but it is actually in a bit of a questionable...

I went to a trip to Puerto Rico with friends March 2016. We chose the most affordable hotel which was Coral by the Sea. Arriving at the airport, by taxi the hotel was about 10-15 mins away. It is on a street with some other hotels and restaurants. The lobby has a restaurant and diner attached. There are stairs and...

Located in front of a parking lot dubbing as pimp / ho office and transverse from a cockfight ring; prehistoric wi-fi and only in the lobby area; broken lift and no help from staff; no door lock; dirty all over, particularly sheets; noisy; smelly -- AWFUL.

This place is nicely located in the area of Isla Verde. 2 Restaurants at the hotel with great food and Gelato. Also has many restaurants and stores within walking distance. The beach is 2 blocks away. 3.5km from airport. The rooms are quaint and nice. Small bathroom that was nicely designed, clean, and built for 1 at a time use....

When my other half booked this, I read through the different things other people wrote and thought this would be a drag for 2.5 weeks - luckily, I was wrong! We checked in in the middle of the night and although the staff was super nice, they were really not flexible, which has more to do with the booking processes...

Sure, the rooms are a bit dated, but for the price, it's a great nights stay. The location was amazing- close to beaches, restaurants, and the Ritz Carlton resort. Give it a try for a night close to the airport.

This hotel needs a bit of more cleanness, but for everything else it was a good stay. My husband and I had a great room. We had discounts on the places that where adjacent to the hotel and there was a good service in the hotel!

We booked this hotel because we were only going to be there for two nights. I regretted it the moment I got to the second floor where our room was. It was at the end of hallway and right in front of the door there were old planks, an old air conditioner, and other stuff that should not have been...

I needed a place to stay for the night so I could catch an early flight home. I was very happy with the hotel and staff. The hotel was clean and had everything I needed and the price was great. The restaurant had very good food and awesome pastries, the best Apple turnover ever. I asked for wakeup call and...

This is not the place to stay unless you don't mind sharing your bed with roaches. My husband and I were told we could not get a refund after find many roaches in the room.
