I've been to Punta del Este twice, and twice I have stayed in Americana Hotel. I went there twice on the New Year's (2010/11 and 2011/12 respectively). Basically the main point of the hotel is its location: steps away from the bus station, los dedos, calle Gorlero.
The hotel is simple and neat. The service is good, people are friendly.
It's on the 100 dollar range, which is cheap for Punta. Much more attractive than sharing a bed on a hostel if you ask me, which is the alternative your money can buy, at least on high season.
