“Location is its best asset”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This property is located in the middle of Condado with a wide variety of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. It is right off the freeway and easy to spot even if you are not familiar with the area. The directions from our iphone took us straight there.

There is no parking on site but a parking lot a block away that charges $20 per day and has to be paid through the hotel. It was raining when we arrived so it was a bit of a hassle to haul the luggage but, in nice weather, it is not a big deal.

The front desk attendant was just there; he provided the basics, keys and directions to the room and a tiny remote for the TV with very strict instructions to return it upon check out or we’d be charged for it. Not exactly the warmest of welcomes. We had to ask to pay for the parking as well as when and where breakfast would be served in the morning. Usually the person at the front desk volunteers this information and, in most cases, with a smile (not in this case). When we checked out there was a different person at the front desk, a very nice lady that greeted us with a great big smile and a sincere and energetic 'good morning'. I wish she would have been there the entire time!

Our room was number three on the second floor. The set up of the hotel is that of a quaint pension, it felt similar to a dorm room. The room was clean but offered the bare minimum: bed, TV, safety box, 6 hangers, a small bathroom, towels and some toiletries. My first impression was: ‘feels like a room in a seminary’. It did have AC, noisy but did its job. The room was quiet which we greatly appreciated after very long, active days. The TV did not work so we never used the tiny remote but kept it in the safe to ensure we would not lose it as it had been stressed that this was a very valuable apparatus. The bed was ok but it can certainly use new pillows, ours were paper thin.

The breakfast offering was simple, continental. It included coffee, orange juice and water, cereal, toast and bagels, muffins and cream cheese pastries. I was happy with coffee, toast and the cream cheese pastries but don’t expect a hot breakfast with a big selection. There is a restaurant on the first level but we did not try it.

Overall, a good alternative if you need a place to sleep, shower and leave your belongings, that offers an ideal, central location to enjoy the area.

The hotel is near to restaurants, the beach and clubs. It was clean, had a free breakfas. The parking is expensive, don't you ever try to park your car in the sushi restaurant you will have problems. The hotel is near to the street you have to prepare yourself for all the noise all the time. Finally bring a backpack because is a very large stairs waiting for you cause they don't have elevators.

Awesome location, but hotel is overdue for remodeling. Needs better pillows, beds, repaint, among other things. Very dirty under bed, gave it 3 stars because of location. Parking is expensive, but it is close to all the fun spots in Condado.

We stayed for one night pre-cruise and have no complaints about this little boutique hotel.

Check-in was adequate - front desk staff provided the basics. Nothing extra.

Room - basic but comfortable with a clean bathroom and good bathroom amenities. There was no phone in the room if I recollect correctly. Free Wifi was great.

Breakfast - basic, again. Boxed cereals, Sara Lee cakes, muffins, toast and jams. Nice that this was offered.

Location - easy walk to Walgreens nearby and restaurants all around. The beach was also a short walk away towards the Marriot.

So, for the price and location - we were very pleased with Casa Condado. WARNING - NO ELEVATORS and none of the rooms have 2 beds. So, do ask for a low floor room if you have heavy luggage.

Room Tip: No elevators, be warned!

I stayed here for two nights  and it was an ok experience here's why...

Pros:
1.Affordable
2.Convenient (close to the beach, restuarants, Walgreens, and clubs)
3. Free breakfast (this can be a con for some people but they don't serve eggs, bacon, sausage etc. only bread, bagel, fruits, and fruit loops cereal.

Cons:
1. It's noisy you can hear your neighboring rooms closing or slamming doors also the you can also hear the street.
2. The front desk are not helpful and when I was here the guy in the front desk was chatting on an adult site while he was serving me and my friend I didn't mind but this might offend people.
3. You have to READ THE HOTEL'S POLICY ON THEIR! Before booking here make sure you read they policy because this isn't you're typical hotel. Here are some rules they provided on their website: there's a limited parking spot for and there's fees, breakfast starts at 7:00 to 9:00 am, WiFi is only available on public areas, you have to check in 3:00pm no early than that and you have to check out exactly at 12:00pm, there's no elevator,  you need a credit card to check in not a debit card,  no smoking ( when I arrived in this hotel it my room smells like cigarettes).
4.  This is a very simple hotel so it doesn't include drawers or a closet and for females they don't have a hair make sure you bring your own. So I suggest bringing your own towel they will only give you what you have in the room no extras,  bring your own bathroom utensils. They don't have iron and ironing board so iron your clothes before going to your vacation.
5. It's some what filthy the maneger has to come up to my room and clean the AC filter and the dust was black plus under the bed was dusty and the floor is sandy.
6. When you shower make sure not to make so much splash since the curtain is short.
7. The AC is close to the bed and it's noisy.
8. The black out curtains isn't really effective of blocking sun light.
9. Make sure you keep an eye on your hotel key and tv remote because if you lost it you will have to pay.
10. Some of the safe isn't working.


Over all its an ok hotel you just need to read the hotels policy and make sure that works for you.

Smaller scale hotel, relatively new, modern design. Asian-owned, with asian restaurant, and popular with asian clientele. Breakfast included was very minimal inadaquate, internet erratic, for the most part non-functional. Air conditioner noisy, and constantly cycling on and off. Difficult to sleep in this room. The place looks good, but doesn't quite work. Staff is responsive (except with internet), bathroom is good with amenities first-rate. Overall, would not repeat here. Located close to the main avenue, with the usual american corporate retail outlets, and local things (not including decent restaurants).

On our first visit to Puerto Rico we were quite surprised to find more limited hotel choices than we had expected. There are very expensive, high end hotels and then roach motels that still cost more than we are used to in the States - with not much in between for the budget-minded traveler. We were fortunate, however, to find the Casa Condado Hotel for our first night in Puerto Rico. Our room was on the second floor (there is no elevator). It was not fancy by any stretch, but it was immaculately clean, air conditioned, and surprisingly quiet for a downtown location. The continental breakfast was basic (coffee, juice, a few pastries and some over-ripe fruit) but it was enough to get us started in the morning. The hotel is located about halfway between the airport and Old San Juan and is a short two-block walk to the beach. Relative to other hotels we considered, it was a good value for us.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you have mobility issues or a lot of luggage, ask for a room on the lower...
