The staff is friendly and professional, the accommodations are a good value. On my most recent trip, I arrived at 11:30 a.m. and noted the kiosks in the lobby for check in, so I gave them a try.

I had a good experience here and was expecting much shoddier conditions given the price but was pleasantly surprised. The place was pretty much clean, equipped with towels and cups, much like a standard motel. I took a chance and it was worth it and I save some money in the process.

We observed that our next door room was open and a lot of men were inside and two men right outside their...

El Rio provides the bare essentials, and it is a good deal based on the price. I would recommend this accommodation to those budget travels who want a certain level of comfort and cleanliness for a pretty good price. I comparison shopped around for prices, and it seemed to be one of the cheapest in that area, which is why...
