We are coming to AC in Feb 2005 and are staying a month. As we want to cram in as much sight seeing, snorkle trips, ruins exploring, etc, all of which cost$$$$$. We are looking at budgeting in the accomodations area. So, anyone out there, any suggestions for 4 people looking for simple, basic, clean, quiet and secure lodgings in the $30 to $50 dollar range. We are looking at Ruby's, Martha's and Lily's so far. Any and all comments much appreciated! Moss, Bonnie, Tom & Wyn

Check out Hotel del Rio. It is about a 10 minute walk from downtown in "Boca del Rio". Nice, clean and close to shops, bakery and cheap little restaurants and bars. They have a nice dock, there is public beach close by and caretakers live on premises, a lovely couple. I stayed there when I first came to San Pedro and very quickly got to know a lot of people. And it is quiet!

I love spindrifts, spacious rooms, VERY clean. FRIENDLY staff, maid service with botteled water daily. two double beds in a room or one queen. $40 per night with cash or else $44 per night. 8th night free, making it less per night. BIGGER discount for one month stay. RIGHT on beach, convient location.

Appreciate the feedback. We are talking with Hotel del Rio and I will start some communication with Spindrifts as well. We have a tentative arrangement with Ruby's, but nothing firm. Anybody stayed at Ruby's and if so some thoughts? Thanks, Moss

Holiday, spindrifts for sure. I've stayed a Ruby's, would recommend it for a few nights stay. you will hear every noise below and above you and through the windows at 5am you'll hear everyone who comes to Ruby's cage(which I highly recommend, yum!) but it is load and not the most comfortable for sleeping. I love spindrifts.

Hello,

If you want to go really cheap, you can try Martha's, $70-$90 week, cheaper for the month. If you're lucky you might even get a room with ocean view!.

Have a good trip.

Smok. Thanks for your input. We just heard last nite from a friend who has stayed at Ruby's and said exactly what you said. We are looking seriously at Hotel del Rio, which kippe and others in previous posts have recommended highly. I will check the spindrift out as well. Thanks, Moss

Opps! I mean thanks Ke for the spin on drift, and Kippe for Martha's, but the wives decided they want to be farther out of town. Of course the price goes up the farther out you get, I've noticed.

Was going to suggest Conchshell as an option, but definately in town, but on the beach and some units have kitchens! Whatever you do decide soon if you don't want to end up moving around, you are, as far as I can remember going when it is pretty busy around here.

Well, Holiday, just how far out do the wives want to stay? Hotel del Rio is a great location not too close to town. Check it out on this picture, double click and then scan all the way over to the right hand side:
