If just passing through Cancun, this hotel is great for 1 or 2 nights as it is well located (5 mins on foot from the bus station) & well priced. It has clean, large rooms & hot showers. It's close to the markets in Cancun - tourists handicraft market & local one.
You can get a minibus transfer (yellow transfers) from the airport which will drop you at the door (160 peso) or take the bus & have a 5min walk (63 peso). The bus station is very handy for getting to Playa del Carmen, Tullum or Chitchen Itza if you don't want to take a tour.
I took the advise of other reviewers & had a room at the back on the second floor which was very quiet.
I was en route to Cuba & needed somewhere just for a couple of nights with good access to the airport. Probably if I was holidaying in Mexico for longer I would choose somewhere closer to the beach.
