Place to sleep
Our stay was fine, except other guests had a very loud party that lasted way into the night. Very difficult to sleep when there was so much noise.

Great 2 star hotel
For what the motel was I would say it is very good. Clean and nicely located (restaurants in walking distance) There was an adult club nearby but it wasn't really a problem. The neighborhood was still pretty clean. We stayed for two nights and I am not sure I would have stayed longer because the size of the room were pretty small. However, since all we did was basically sleep in the room it wasn't a big deal.

Just ok
Beds were squishy and you could hear the springs everytime you moved!! Breakfast was very simple not what expected. Walls thin, noise from room above annoying! Parking was little with small stalls! Area was close to everything we were there to see! No traffic noise.

Don’t stay at el castell
This room was below any viable standard... phone didn’t work to call the office about our neighbors being drunken, loud fools at 3am! The microwave didn’t work either, the floor was dirty to the point my husband used a wet towel to mop it so we could use our socks to walk around! Utterly disappointed and will never stay at this hotel again!

Bed sagged and was uncomfortable. Friendly staff. Continental breakfast is ok, basic menu.
