So we stayed at this place for 2 nights, May 12-14, 2014 in room #9 (3rd floor). Remember no elevator, so you have to walk up stairs.
The hotel is quite good for a budget hotel. They do need to have better sign to indicate where the hotel is. It took us 10 min to find the hotel when we got there, as they have a small little board. It is right on the main street of town - all shops, dining, etc., are right there. There are grovery stores, 7-11, pharmacies are around. The beach is 5 min walk away; as is the ADO bus terminal and ferry to Cozumel. This ADO terminal at this point also has buses to Cancun airport every 45 min.
The hotel itself is nice. Rooms are comfortable, AC works well, fridge in room with microwave and small heater in kitchenette. Bathroom is a bit tiny but work wells.
Since this room faces the main road, it can be a bit noisy especially when hotels play music loud. However, the room had good double-pane balcony doors, so the sound was minimal.
The room beds were comfortable. There was a safe in the room, you need the key from front desk to use it. The room did have WiFi but the connection was a bit erratic. Sometimes it took nearly 20 min just to connect to their network, and once connected it would drop off and on.
Everything you will need is on the street; food, tour operators to sites like Tulum, drinks, etc. Loved the location. Would definitely stay here again.
