I stayed here on a work trip and I was honestly appalled by the condition of the rooms. The bed linens have an odd smell to them and did not seem washed. I brought my own pillow case thank God. The towels were a joke! It was like using sandpaper on my face. On top of this the room was...

My family and I have stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel Resort & Convention Center a few times. Prices are reasonable and the rooms are clean. There is a restaurant in the lobby that has always been happy to prepare my fresh catch of the day.

Great place to relax and enjoy quality family time. Steps away from the sand and water. They also have ATV rentals and Jet skies. A short drive back into town where you can find plenty of good restaurants.

Too bad they lost almost all of their beach to the past two years stroms. Need to jump down to the beach from the concrete...
