Is San Juan ready for a hotel?

This Villa project has been in gestation for over a year and a half.  That’s longer than most elephants.  I suggest that the town dinosaurs no longer need to incubate this egg.   Folks,  isn’t it true that the only time you really benefitted from something was when you said “yes” instead of “no”?   It’s time to move forward with this excellent plan to bring housing and a hotel  to our fair city.

@will rogers... Please provide more detail about the "Villa" hotel project that you are referencing for those of us in town who don't have any info on this proposed hotel. I saw some mention of the new hotel plans in the OC Register, but not a whisper of anything of the sort here on SJC Patch. ... Penny, do you have any info?

I would like to know about his proposed hotel in SJC. I thought the hotel project died and they were building more shops. Is this a hotel in a different location? Next weekend is the swallows day parade. I have 3 families coming from out of state. There is never a hotel to accommodate family and friends who might enjoy the parade. This has always been a problem.

Donna, there are plenty of hotels around just not right in downtown San Juan. If they are all bent on building a hotel along with 33 townhouses they can build it out side of town and run a shuttle like many resort cities do. There is enough congestion in town as it is, no need for more, plus smog, and what about water?

NOOOOO!! QUIT BUILDING. Besides, there is a Marriot at the corner of Stonehill that blocks the ocean view, so that the visitors now have that view. Enough it enough already!!

If we are already short on water, where is this water coming from to supply these residents and a hotel. More water is required than what the present buildings require. We are constantly being told in advertisements and through fliers to conserve water. We should first be able to supply enough water to our current residents before we allow water meters for future residents. That would make sense wouldn't it?
