Good spot to stay!
The hotel is older but a great location. Walls were a little thin but really not an issue until a crying child walked past and they decided to stop outside our door :-) Good parking area. Great walking location to the center of town. Breakfast was a full buffet breakfast with a cook making omelettes to order. Room was a little musty but turning on the a/c took care of it immediately. We didn't use the pool but a nice large pool and pool deck. Wifi worked fine in the room. We'd definitely stay here again when in David.

Meh booking offered us one family suite for 2 adults and 3 children, but upon reaching hotel, the room was not available. Had to use a smaller room and they added an extra bed. Staff was helpfull through this but inevitably we where all cramped in. Thankfully it was just for 1 night.

DON"T waste your Money!!
terrible choice..have stayed at some of the other budget hotels in David and was looking for an upgrade. Decided to treat ourselves and stay at the Gran National..we paid $40.00 more then the standard rate for a room with a balcony and a pool view only to find out they have No balconies..and we got a roof view!!..when we complained they said for another $15.00 per night we could have a poolside thanks they had 0 privacy...our room had no wash cloths, no hand towels, no bath mat.the hotel was so HOT..and our a/c barley worked..took 2 days to cool down..this is a Jr. Suite..really!!...It poured on of the nights we were there so we got to experience the leaks in the not waste your money..the Castillo and the Alaca are a much better value. Check out the picture of our balcony with a pool view...NOT!
