When we arrived, they let us check in which was great! But the hotel did not have electricity so a construction worker had to help me carry our luggage up the stairs ( we were in the 3rd floor mind you). It seems the hotel is severely under staffed since they had to ask a construction worker to carry our luggage. The electricity came back about 20 mins […] later. The room was good, not luxurious but adequate for the price. The Hotel is a few steps from the beach and one block away from Ashford Street which is the happening street in Condado. Super close to El Viejo San Juan, about 10 mins away in car. The only other complaint, that goes with the hotel being understaffed, is that when we called to get new towels the man that answered the main desk told us to go down and pick them up. They also only had one hair drier. But If you can deal with the above then you should be fine. The location is great and the price is great also! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Can't stay there again!"
This hotel is mosquito infested. Me and my wife changed to three different rooms and still had to fight off mosquitos. If anyone stays here hope you packed plenty of bug spray. Service was cool though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice size room"
Enjoyed my stay. Room was nice size two queen beds flat screen tv. Bathroom was small but very nice and modern.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything."
The hotel is okay. Great for those on budget or who won't be spending lots of time in the room. It's in walking distance of everything. The room was pretty decent but the bathrooms are extremely small and felt dirty. Was not comfortable until i sprayed lysol all over. Overall I would stay again because of price and location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"For the price you pay its great. On the beach!"
I stay in PR twice. First time at the expencive hotel and second time at cheap hotel. You pay what you get and do not compaine! I enjoy both times.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was fine. The bed was comfortable enough. The shower had good water pressure and was nice and hot. The staff was friendly. It's in a GREAT location. They had a modest little breakfast with juice, roles, coffee, etc. The air conditioner worked fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful stay! The room was very convenient as it was on the fist floor. We would have liked the room to have been swept better as it seamed that the sand would move from one corner to the next. The hotel is under repairs so we could see that was on of the things that brought the sand into the room. Maybe the door could go all the way down […] to prevent the wind from blowing the sand in. The curtains are too low and it lets the light from the post outside the window make the room very bright and hard to sleep with it in our eyes. Maybe moving the beds away from the window would make it better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Not directly on the water, surrounded by bigger, fanicer hotels. Loud music outside of window all night, Frequent power outages and hot water shortages. I don't mind a rustic living facility, but if you're someone who demands hot water and power assurance, you may need to look elsewhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is close to the beach. It has a friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall Great Experience"
When we first arrived, our first room's a/c unit wasn't working properly so they moved us on the 2nd day. Staff were friendly thu out stay and very friendly when asking questions. Loved the fact that hotel was steps away from the beach, stores, and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Had a great time!!! Def will stay again"
Had a wonderful experience the location is great steps away from the beach a very convenient walgreens up the block and everything else shops restaurants are up the block. The staff is wonderful and go out of their way to make you happy. This place is a must very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review

great stay. Hotel was as exspectedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Out the front doors and right onto the beach."
At first I was a little leery. The staff was amazing made me feel at ease. My room was adequate and comfortable. The continental breakfast was ample. I do believe some retraining in handling food properly needs to happen...soon. I would stay there again and again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not As Advertised"
Barely a 1 star hotel.Old & rundown. They charged me twice for my stay. Location & price are the only saving grace for this hotel. Only 100 yards from the beach & half way between airport & cruise terminal. Staff is very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast sad very sad coffe cold, butter melted, cereal only one milk empty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"So-so if you must..."
Nice location and beach, rooms are small and old. They are clean but claustrophobic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Old hotel, clean but more for the beach crowd not for the regular tourist. Not the best area of town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach, OK for 1 night stay."
The staff was friendly and accomodating. We arrived early in the morning from a cruise and the staff quickly got one of our rooms ready and let us check in early with no extra charge. However, the rooms could be cleaner. The matresses are old and have no matress covers, just a thin sheet. Some of the pillows did not have pillow cases on them and the […] toilet seat was broken. There were only two towels in the rooms but the staff promptly got more upon request. There are only two $10.00 parking spots, everyone else has to park in the Mariott parking garage for $18.00. The continental breakfast is cereal, toast muffins, juice, coffee, water. The positive side is that it is located in Downtown San Juan, practically on the beach which the Mariott maintains and it is much cheaper than other hotels in this area.

"Ok for Adults. Granddaughter uncomfortable."
Not here long enough for detailed comments. ..............;Genuine Expedia guest review
Our family is not used to staying at a hotel in this condition, it was dirty and gross. Just needed a night before and after a cruise, didn't know I needed a $300.00 room just to feel comfortable. My son actually slept in a chair, would not sleep in the beds. Great way to start a vacation. The worst thing was that all through our beautiful cruise our […] kids would ask us if we really had to stay at the hotel again when we got off the ship, they wanted to just sleep in the airport.

Hotel very old rooms very small doors slam all night long I wouldn't stay more than one maybe 2 nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff very friendly and helpful!!! Would go back, no problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I stay here for 6 days. It was one of the cheaper places to stay when we were booking. We knew we did not want to be in a hotel most of the time we were in Puerto Rico, so we went cheap. The hotel is in a great location in Condado. It is just a few steps from the beach. There are pleanty of near by places to eat and it is right next […] door to the Marriot which has a casino. You get want you pay for here. Our room was small and had one window. The bathroom was small too. We had a Tv (had a few channels like news, sports, etc.), AC unit was in the window but worke just fine. There was also a desk in the room and the Wifi worked just fine. We would stay here again and would recommend it for those that are easy to please and will be outside more. The staff was very nice and they cleaned the room everyday. They got a cab to the airport when we left and gave us a lesson on the bus system. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, close to the beach and restaurants"
The hotel is right on the beach with a great staff and comfortable rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dont stay here if you want comfort like your home."
Overall not satisfied.. First thing was that the cable did not work and they had to switch us out of our room the next day, the toilet sits right in front of the wall and i could barely sit on it, and the sheets looked dirty.... Breakfast included a sugary breakfast, white toast, watered down juice, and sugary cereal. Will not be staying here EVER AGAIN! […] Only good thing about this hotel is location.

"Inexpensive, mostly clean, PERFECT location."
We stayed here for 5 days in February. The location is perfect. Steps from the beach, a block from Ashford Ave and a short bus/cab ride away from Old San Juan. Our room was small but had everything we needed. The room was clean, but the bathroom could have been cleaner. I actually bought a sponge at the Walgreens down the street to scrub the sink myself. […] As in FYI: no wash cloths, no blow dryer. The window air conditioner was old and a little loud, but it cooled the room well. The closet was large, but there were only 3 wire hangers in it. We got more from the front desk. Our room, 301, was on the south side of the hotel (not the ocean side). The noise from the bar next door was very loud on Friday and Saturday night. I would recommend a room on the other side of the building. We travel with ear plugs so that solved the problem. The wifi router was right outside our door so the signal was great. Overall we had an excellent stay at the Sandy Beach. The staff was friendly and the price and location were great. This is definitely a budget hotel. We just needed a place to sleep on this trip and this hotel fit the bill perfectly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice but old"
nice but old, close to the beach, clean, staff nice, breakfast was not acceptable negative as I went to the Hilton website and Expedia stole my log in ... was expecting Hilton family class of hotel and since this was so old, in the older part of the city, I was disappointed. IT was not part of the Hilton familyGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly and helpful staff, good location to the Old San Juan, beaches and restaurantsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
this hotel is clean and located right at the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great no fuss hotel. Wonderful staff"
Sandy Beach Hotel is a simple no fuss hotel right on the beach. Super sweet staff, late check out (they can hold your stuff for you after you check out), right off Ashford in the mist of the hotel strip. 10 minutes to old San Juan. It is the perfect location ti be in. Great hotel if you are not interested in something fancy and looking for more of the […] basics. I loved it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great if your on a budget"
Our hotel stay was very good. The beds were alittle hard and the pillows not fluffy but then again it's half the price of the Marriott next door. The hotel is a footstep away from the beach and right inline with the tourist stuff happening in PR. Overall I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
This hotel is an absolute steal. If you are expecting a luxury hotel look elsewhere. This is a great hotel for what we paid. It was a safe hotel in a good neighborhood and it was a stones throw from the beach. It was also surrounded by a lot of good restaurants and bars. It's also very easy to get around the city as there is a trolley stop less than […] 2 blocks away and a taxi line in front of the hotel. But like I said. It's not a 5 star resort. So if you go in knowing that you will enjoy it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient hotel close to beach"
Twice confirmed the cruise special of 2 single beds for us. Arrived to a queen but they easily switched. The hotel clerk suggested dining nearby which was wonderful. The breakfast was horrendous. They should eliminate it altogether or just have a coffee pot if its gonna be that bad. A great Latin place is a block away around the corner for breakfas […] t. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Clean, quaint, small room right on the ocean. This is authentic San Juan, nothing fancy. Good for a one night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best bargain on the beach"
You will not find a better price in this area for a location right on the beach and in the Condado hotel district. The hotel is older and just provides the basics (bed, bath, and minimal breakfast), but the price cannot be beat. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was adequate, and the staff was always friendly and accommodating. […] As long as you realize that this is not an expensive luxury hotel, you will not be disappointed. I would be happy to return to Sandy Beach again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"what can't I said NOTHING!"
Very BAD, I wend fore a vacation whit my father in law, and it was the first time that my father in law in puerto rico I was happy because i belive that the hotel was clouse to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location on the Beach."
The staff was friendly. The room was about the size of a small hotel room. Clean and mine was on the third floor. It has a balcony on the fourth level to sun and enjoy the breeze.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beach close but noisy..."
Overall not the worst place to stay but needs improvements. Water that smelled like sewage in front of the hotel. Shower had 3 streams of water going in 3 different directions. Room was clean but when the bar next door got hopping at 3am, there was no rest for the weary. Thankfully only had to stay for the night to hop on a cruise ship the next day. Close […] to a few restaurants though, so there was that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Booked a budget hotel and they delivered very well. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
We booked two rooms and was very disappointed at accommodations and the continental breakfast did not have a variety. I would not go back to hotel. I hope the other places you promote are better. You should do some more research and investigation before putting out to public. Not happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"10-second walk to a glorious beach"
Easy check-in/out, courteous bilingual staff, by the ocean--what's not to like? Yeah, it's not luxury, but it's fantastic for what it is.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and good price"
If you are expecting the Ritz then don't stay here. It is inexpensive when compared to all the other hotels in the area but you get what you pay for. You can't beat the location if you want to be on the beach in Condado.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for the San Juan beach experience!"
Safe. Family friendly. Wonderful staff. Perfect location. Close to stores and restaurants. Within walking distance of shops and Old San Juan.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect beach location close to San Juan sights"
The room was very simple, but it was clean. The hotel was just a few steps away from the beach. It was also a convenient location to walk to both downtown San Juan and to Old San Juan-if you are up to walking. We walked all the way to the opposite side of Old San Juan and got to see all the attractions on the way (1-2 hour walk). The staff was very […] nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

"Location. Location. Location."
If you are looking for a Hilton type hotel,or a resort with a pool, this is not the place for you. It was a bit run down, but extremely clean. Beds were super comfortable, and the A/C worked great! Best part of all - the proximity to the beach (literally one bldg away), and the super friendly, extremely accomodating staff. breakfast was weak (empty […] carbs and a few bananas), but there were so many local restaurants with superb food - it mattered not. Our only complaint was the lack of towels. Only two "bath" size - no hand towel and the washcloths were not existant. But for the price...the location, location, location cannot be beat.
