This 72-room budget hotel on Puerto Rico's west coast is not for the chic, the romantic, or those looking for a beachfront stay (a drive is required to reach the sand). This is an older property with outdated decor to match. The owners put a chunk of money into the modern Ambience Lounge & Restaurant, and now need to focus on the rooms, starting with those eye-sore bedspreads. Until then, front-facing rooms with balconies -- some with ocean views (great at sunset) -- are considered the best of the lot. The family-friendly pool and large terrace has its share of weddings and therefore attracts mostly groups, many who are local. Keep in mind that the pool and bars close down pretty early.
