My Puerto Rico vacation home.
Clean, affordable hotel with comfortable 2nd floor patio, near the beach and night life. Private restroom+hot shower. No drawers but a chest with padded top for a seat. Room safe has electric four digit lock that you set. Hangup clothes limited. Adequate 22" color cable TV. Room is entered from from the front desk using a secure, inside stairway. A chair that can be moved into the room is located adjacent to the entrance. Adequate public transportation is accessible starting with a $21 price-controlled taxi from the airport. The bus stop is at a nearby CVS. A neighborhood grocery store is across the street from hotel. Hotel is located a block and a half from a Walgreen and a CVS that sell everything you might require to include bottled alcohol beverages. Affordable restaurants are near the hotel. Breakfast starts at $4; expect $10 up for lunch or dinner. Hotel is only three short blocks from public beaches and tidal pools. It is an easy $.75 bus ride to Viejo (old) San Juan which provides an indescribable cultural experience that includes street musicians and entertainers, international cuisine, churches, museums, diverse art forms and the Spanish forts. The architecture is stunning. A safe environment with police within sight everywhere you go. Local residents are eager to provide assistance, speak English and give good advice when responding to questions. Everything encountered was family friendly. If you get bored in this beautiful city, it's your own fault.
