  • 8,0.Very good

    We were given what seemed to be a newly remodeled room. It was larger than other rooms, it had a kitchenette and fridge. The bathroom and bed were very nice for a low budget hotel. The service was good. I would have prefered healthier breakfast choices next to “pastechi, empanada, arepa”. But they were delicious! There was the option of toast with eggs.

    I never checked in. I walked into the hotel and turned back around and went back into the cab. Expedia should remove from listing.
