Fodor's Review

Simple rooms in this six-story low-rise have somewhat battered colonial-style furnishings; some have tiny balconies but only a few on the top floors have a partial ocean view. The small figure-eight pool in the middle of the courtyard is exposed but still refreshes. Choose air-conditioning and cable TV or fan only, without the tele, to save about $25 per night. The two-bedroom apartments are poorly designed and have stiff Mexican furnishings. For the same price you can get two standard rooms, although without the kitchen facilities. JB Golden Age nightclub next door provides Latin and pop music throughout the week (it's live on weekends and canned otherwise) for a small cover charge, usually $4–$8 per person.
