Pay a bit more and stay somewhere safer
When we pulled up to the hotel, I was very unimpressed. The streets are dirty and there are bars on all windows. Inside the hotel is awesome with beautiful murals, a nice pool and breakfast area. The receptionist was not particularly friendly.
The room was nice enough with AC. I could feel the springs in the well-worn mattress. The local area feels sketchy. I walked across the street to the coast and some jerk in a souped up car tried to run me over, twice! There was a homeless guy talking to himself nearby.
All evening there were little souped up cars racing around the streets. I would not stay here again.
