Sandy state of mind
I've stayed at Sandy Beach several times and you can't beat the location. There is no onsite Parking. You have to pay for parking or get lucky finding a spot on the street. The accommodations are clean and the beds go from firm to super firm. If you are looking for high end furnishings this isn't your place but if you are looking for a nicely price hotel in a great location Sandy's is the way to go.

Do not recommend
Overall it was not a good experience. First you can’t find the hotel. Check in was quick and easy. Cleanliness was not good, sheets had stains and bathroom was not clean. The doors had no pad lock. The morning we were leaving staff were having a HUGE argument outside our door threatening each other and called the police on each other. The cleaning lady then proceeded to knock on our door while she was still screaming at someone and open our door and we had to yell back at her.

6/10 Good

It was close to everything, restaurants, convenient stores, beach, areas was super nice, close old San Juan, downtown. Staff was super friendly, helpful, the best asset of the hotel. The place itself is more like a hostel than a hotel, 80s forniture badly maintained, no hot water in the room, the only updated feature is the electronic key apart from that everything is old and outdated, hairs in the bed, dust in the floor. This was a last minute trip to renew my passport there so since it wasn’t a vacation I just didn’t mind the whole situation but photos are a bit far from reality.

Would not recommend
Did not stay. Walked in the room and back out. Room was awful . Outdated and depressing. Felt like a jail cell. Front desk person was kind and representable. Even seemed embarrassed of the room and work place themselves. Elevator seemed like from another era and uneven with the floors. It was false advertisement, the room nor the building itself were as advertised in the photos.

The room was so dirty the sheets had blood stains on them and the table was covered in dust it was 4 of us they only gave us 2 towels and 1 roll of toilet paper the floor was dirty like outside we had to ask for more blankets to put down over the dirty sheets overall the whole property is dirty the only good thing about our very short stay was we was walking distance to the beach everything else was terrible would not recommend this property at all disgusting

2/10 Poor

This was the absolute nastiest place I have ever stayed by far. No parking, smelled like urine, loud, old creeky beds, dirty towels and sheets, and the AC leaked water all over the bed.
