I was going to stay a few days but I hated it and only stayed one night.
The room was not that clean including trash on the floor and a dirty bedspread. Lights did not work at the end of the hall so I had to grope my way to my room in the dark. Asked for that to be fixed but was told it couldn't be and they didn't want to change my room either.
Up the dark hall and around the corner was a row of bathrooms and showers. Didn't walk by that many times but twice a man was using the toilet as a urinal without bothering to shut the door. Nice. Not.
Felt like a place where you could rent the rooms by the hour.
It was hot and stuffy and I opened the window for air and it was noisy and smelly. During the night it smelled strongly of fire and there was no fire alarm in the room. First time I ever wished I carried a portable one with me. Twice I got up and walked all around the hotel looking to see if there was a fire. Didn't see anything but couldn't escape the smell.
Restaurant downstairs was inexpensive with rudimentary food.
The location across from the central park should be good, but if you have to be in town I would recommend up the hill or over on the highway closer to the Musoc bus station.
All in all, bleh. I wouldn't stay in central San Isidro again and definitely not here, but some of the surrounding mountain areas look lovely.
