    Location, location, location.... The very best in punta del este!!!! Located just between both beaches (one block each), 1/2 block from the casino. One block from the Bus Terminal. Many restaurants available even though we were post season.Employees very helpful and willing to make us comfortable. Changed us to a room with a fridgerator... Would really have loved a microwave. Supermarket 3 blocks away. Breakfast continental and individually prepared and served, more available if desired. Loved the wide sidewalks and the table and chairs out front for sitting and relaxing.I Felt very safe outside even late at night. Free wifi throughout.

    Very retro (1960s), needs refurbishing badly. Rugs dirty and worn. Beds hard and would benefit by having a foam pad topper. Bathroom small but complete... Had tiles missing from the shower edging. When built, they must have spent a lot of money designing and furnishing the lobby and the rooms, but nothing has been done since then. The whole place could use a good dusting and vacuuming. I would still stay here again because of the location and value... But would bring a quilted pad for the bed with me.

    Friendly staff. Family feel.

    Incredibly basic, no frills. Not well maintained. Off season in Punta del Este and no one else there. No fault of the hotel really, but got a spider bite during the night. Guess it could happen many places.

    The breakfast was the best part of this cheap if cheerful venue. The hotel staff were friendly and the hotel was well located. Internet access was good.

    The rooms were grotty, no other way to describe it, I have stayed in some pretty average places but this place is best described as a decaying hostel, rather than a hotel. The floors and carpets were filthy, there were eletric cables everywhere in the room, the bed mattress thin, pillows thin, shower and bathroom, tiny and smellying of (sh!t) from the drain, the water pipes in the room were rusting away and their were wood lice by the rooting wooden door to the closed of balcony. I think if you want a hotel, pay the extra and go with an established brand for Punta del Este. If you are on a budget and don't mind roughing it, the Shelton will be ok for a couple of days.

    The only things I really liked about shelton was the price and the location. Anyway...the breakfest was ok, but I didn't like the service. And the room has a regular size but the bath is terrible. I don't know if I'd like to stay again, but I really liked the price I paid to visit punta del este.

    One block from the bus station, which is its only positive attribute. (Also near beaches, but so are all hotels in Punta del Este.)

    Without doubt the worst hotel we have experienced in the last decade of world travel. Although clean, it was essentially old and worn out. Our room was 1960s or 70s vintage with nothing updated or even replaced since that time (including the bed and bedspread). It reminded us of eastern European hotels in former communist countries, except they were low cost. Here, we paid one of the highest prices in our entire 4 week South American trip. Breakfast was also the most meager we had. Not a buffet, which is the norm, rather a serving to each person of coffee (about 1.5 cups per person in the pot), a glass of juice, two small slices of toast, a tiny croissant , one pat of butter and one of marmalade.
