Appreciated the accommodation of early check in (in a.m.instead of after 3 p.m. as per Expedia reservation). Not a fan of poorly cleaned bathroom - debris/hair on floor including in shower. Front desk reception not overly friendly, mainly due to language difference. Manager speaks some English and could be more involved it seems as was only brought into picture by...

This was our second time staying at La Cresta Inn. We had an overnight layover and didn't want to spend a lot of money. With its shuttle service to and from the hotel, it was very convenient. Breakfast was also included which was delicious. Actually my favorite there are the French Fries we had with a chicken sandwich the night...

We stayed at this hotel in April 2013 and found it very pleasant and had to return this year on our visit to Panama. The hotel is located in a good location to walk to many locations, using Balboa Avenue, supermarket close by and their free shuttle buses to the mall and from the airport. This year a modest $2...

We stayed at La Cresta for 7 nights and it was great!! The included breakfast was much better than expected. Our room was on the top floor facing the street. It was a little noisy but the view was terrific. Teano was very helpful and gave us a really good deal. We appreciated the free shuttles to and from the...

Never in my life have I stayed in such a mess of a hotel. Driving from the Tocumen airport to La Cresta was already a sceptical trip, especially since we passed by all the nice hotels by the water and stopped straight into the ghetto. But we tried to look past that. So after having checked in, they guided us...

We spent 7 nights and enjoyed every minute. The Owner.Mgr. was very helpful in what to do and see. The breakfasts were good. We did eat in the restaurant one evening and were pleased. It is located in the city with transport to and from airport. A guided tour bus ride to Old Town. Well worth the stay and will...

Let me start this review by saying that my wife and I are NOT picky people. In other words, we don't have a ton of money, attended public schools and universities and travel on a budget. We've also spent the last decade traveling around Latin America quite a bit. Now that we have two small children, our standards are slightly...

I don't know what to say about this hotel other than I was in shock. Reading some of the reviews I began to believe I was staying at a different hotel.
