Hotel Oriental, Carmelo, Uruguay (May 2012 - 1 night, November 2019 - 1 night). Finally I found a budget hotel made for travelers in Uruguay. Small basic room in the middle of town at a good price. If Uruguay had more hotels like this, they would get many more backpackers! Again while in Carmelo I stayed here at Hotel Oriental. I paid $9USD for a private room with bathroom. Not flash but very cheap for Uruguay! Recommended.
