I stayed here in February 2017. The island was very busy with a lot of places fully booked. Salinas was the fifth room I took a look at and it was clean, away from noise and had a hot shower whilst still being within my backpackers budget unlike many other places. The old couple who I assume are the owners...

We stayed here as the courtyard seemed nice, and the room was bright and airy. However, the shower was cold despite having hot and cold taps. When I asked the woman who owned the place, she wandered off to check (I assume) and didn't get back to me. A few hours later we returned after a day trip and the...

What a disappointment Salinas has been. Seeing all those pics of the highrise apartments n Condos I anticipated a town or city of note. We spent 3 days here and my impressions now have been shaped to see this Tourists town as a dusty dirty location. Walk along the street adjacent to the Malecon and you dare not take your...

Rooms and bathrooms are smelly and dirty, the beds are uncomfortable and seemed to be dirty, too. The shower was disgusting and seemed to be dangerous due to cables standing out everywhere! The owners are elderly, very unfriendly people, who let us wait repeatedly during check-in to watch their TV-soap. Double room was 30$ instead of the usual 40$, but...

Don't spend your money here. The old woman at the reception is by far the worst person I've met in Latin America. Her son gave us a discount because we stayed more nights, which she denied. In the end she gave us a room with the discount anyway, but she took her time to pick the worst room available (although...

We came on Friday and other places were checked were booked out or way out of our price range. Older Lady at the reception was not very welcoming. We didn't like smelly room at the ground level but she offered us the other one on the floor facing the Street. For strange price $33,60 for the double room with the...

I only stayed one night here and then changed to a different hotel. There are much better options right around the corner (read my review of Hotel Espana). The air con is NOT air con. Dont be fooled. The shower has one of those electric shower heads which are dangerous (I've been shocked before). And it was also only semi...

The staff were really grumpy and unhelpful. The room was a bit grimy and smelled awful. The shower was tepid to cold. It's cheap for the area ($12) but I wouldn't recommend staying here at all - best to pay a little extra and go elsewhere that doesn't make you feel uncomfortable just being there.

Positives - the hotel was very cheap half the price of most other private rooms in town - despite the stories below we did stay here for three nights to save some money as Galapogas is very expensive and you want to save your money for tours. Also location is very good. Negatives First sign of trouble was when the...
