Visiting for a few days, to familiarize myself with San Carlos.  Can anyone recommend an in-expensive hotel.

I believe El Crestón motel is pretty reasonable and centrally located. Check Tripadvisor.com for reviews of various places. They seem to be pretty accurate. I don´t know if Gringo Pete´s is still in business. They were pretty reasonable (funky but clean). I don´t have contact info for them. Departamentos Adlai is also considered reasonable.

You can bargain the posted walk in prices with el Creston if you are nice, and mention that you are staying moore than one night.

If you want to be on the beach, Hotel Playa San Carlos is the place! Plus they have a great bar & restaurant! P.$1,020 or approximately US$62 double occupancy Tel.: 51 (622) 226-1212

If you can handle rustic it's Posada Del Desierto. Much cheaper than the others mentioned. Google it.

I really urge you to read the reviews on Trip Adviser. Looks can be deceiving. Hotel Playa San Carlos is a case in point.

Hotel Playa San Carlos (the old Hotel Fiesta)is a dump. What used to be a very nice place is now a shabby, run down disaster. The current owners have let it run down to where it is barely habitable. The restaurant is horrible with wait staff that is lazy and incompetent.    A shame as it was once a nice place.


Our favorite place to stay, if we need a room, is Condominios Pilar.  On one of the best beachs in SC

WRONG Darbone!! The former caretakers of the hotel are the ones that ran it into the ground and yes, it got to a shabby state. Since Catalina Ordaz took over she and her husband have cleaned it up and refurbished everything! It's eclectic for sure, but clean and comfortable and a bargain for being on the beach. As for the restaurant, like I said, they cleaned EVERYTHING and brought Angel, formerly of La Palapa Griega, back to run it. The food and drink are among the BEST in San Carlos! The location, on the beach, with the option of inside or outside dining is unequaled. Try it Darbone, it ain't like it used to be, and methinks you'll like it!! Oh, and BTW, it's on the same beach as Condominios Pilar only with a more Southerly exposure; better for sunbathers!

Yes Monte, the 16% is included in the P.$1,020 price. (US$62).
MaryT, as for the Trip Advisor piece, it was written about the way the hotel was under the former management. Try the hotel & Angel's cuisine in the dining room now, methinks you'll like it!

I stand by my opinion. And I'm not related/ nor have any relationship (good or bad) with the people who own the place but I have unfortunately stayed at that dump. The only thing good about it was they accommodated my dogs, which seemed appropriate as the room was like a kennel. The beach at Pilar and the estuary is much nicer (again in my opinion) than the beach in front of the Old Fiesta.

Richard, could you outline the improvements to the hotel itself that have been made since the terrible reviews in 2014?

Another plug for the Ordaz's, man are you a glutten for punishment.
Catalina has made a nice living preying on the the unsupecting for decades, so running up her flag in the daylight on any SC Forum where it can be seen, correctly identified, and shot down really isn't helping you or her.
I'd stick to talking about the price of cheese in Amsterdam if I was you. This  is more up your alley.
