San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico, and its cultural hub. Half of the island’s population lives in the greater metropolitan area, and most visitors enter here as well. Old San Juan, with its cobblestone streets and old colonial architecture, lies on a small island connected to the mainland by bridges; it is guarded by 16th and 17th century forts, now World Heritage sites open to the public.see all hotels in San Juan
"Its okay I guess..."
The Hotel location is great. The beach is accross the street, youre right on Isla verde avenue plus theres a lot of restaurants close by. However, what I didnt like about the hotel were the rooms. You can literally hear conversation from the room next to you and with our luck the person next door to us was smoking so all of that smoke went through the […] vents into our room. The pool area was small but nice and the water was warm. Overall you get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location if you need easy access to airport"
A flight cancellation caused our unexpected stay. The hotel was in a good location to catch a cab to the airport the next morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was a little on the dated side, but clean and everything was in good working order. The continental breakfast was a nice perk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel staff"
The hotel staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. Hotel facilities such as gym is lack of cleanliness and organization. the elevator is slow and uncertain and Wi Fi access is slow and difficult.Genuine Expedia guest review
Besides being overpriced, room was ok. The ad said the hotel was across the street from the beach but in reality the freeway was even closer. The only real complaint like I said was the price. I've stayed at much much cheaper hotels and they were a lot nicer. Oh yeah and the towels had some blood on them from the previous tenant. There was a restaurant […] in the lobby which was super convenient and the free breakfast in the morning was perfect Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is just enough if you just want to leave your belongings somewhere safe and secure while youre out in the beach or roaming around PR. it has the basic services you need in a hotel. the only thing is it smells in the hallway like old wet mop and ac vent on the ceiling is leaking like crazy. but otherwise staff are very helpful and efficient. […] location is the best! literally walking distance to the beach! and the price is reasonable withwhat youre getting. i recommend this hotel if youre not lokking for a spa boutique like hotel!

"just right for vacation use"
only problem was the parking to small. Need to expandGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly, and we were able to check in a little before three...the room was clean but smelled like mold! We informed the person at the counter who explained the smell was due to all the rain they were having. While we tried to be understanding the smell was horrible and made it virtually impossible to sleep. The continental breakfast […] made up for the inconvenience, we were pleasantly surprised. Again, the staff was very nice, the continental breakfast was good but the hotel needs to be updated and ALL carpeting removed to avoid the humidity odor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
need renovations....the bathroom in bad conditions....sme[[ bad all roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
so far its close to the beach and the free breakfast is a buffet which is nice except room are outdated and our current bathroom has a leak. They did offer to change our room so we will be content in morning so far everyone is very nice. I would have liked to know ahead of time it cost to park daily at hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For those on the go!"
Was a good affordable place to rest your head. Friendly staff, easy access to freeway and plenty of stores and restaurants near by. I was in San Juan to see the town. Didn't spend mich time in the room. If you are going to do the same then well worth staying here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap place to stay"
For being a "Howard Johnson" brand this hotel was very dissapointing. They seriously need to remodel the whole entire hotel. The hotel is centralized in Isla Verde which is great but you would expect more from this hotel. The free breakfast was ok, not much of a variety. The a/c in the room was loud & annoying. If you're looking for just a cheap place […] to stay and not to relax in your room then stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I would go there again"
The fridge and microwave were a plus, right on the strip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel needs upkeep work done. Continental breakfast would have been better with daily variety.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel so so"
The hotel room looked nice the walk to the beach house was right across the street so it was good my only problem was the smell of the room it had a slight smell that wasn't to my likingGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was VERY accommodating but the hotel rooms need a facelift. The beds were creaky and the mattress lumpy and the air conditioning fan sounded like a bucket of bolts all night long. We did mention it at checkout to the desk. Overall, it is a great location and the personnel were awesome but the hotel itself just needs some upgrades.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good staff and service. Rooms need some remodeling and new appliances. In this opportunity the internet connection was very bad, not like in some previous stays. After all is a decent place to stay and very close to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"too expensive for what you get"
The rooms needs mayor repairs. The bathtubs needs to be replaced. Linen is clean, but very well used. Mattresses were hollowed. Good toiletries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the number of stars"
At 2.5 stars expectations are rather low. The only advantage is airport proximity. Higher floors may have a view. Breakfast is nonexistent. So it only meets the expectations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"okay for a one night stay"
location is good. We called for an extra towel since there was four of us and we only had three towel, it was never brought up to our room. However, i had thrown away our flight info and the man at the desk let me into an office to use a computer. The hotel is kind of old and outdated and worn out, but okay for a one night stay. Had a pretty good pizza […] place connected to it, so dinner was easy. overall, not too bad for a short stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in a convenient location"
Overall a good experience. The staff was nice and courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to airport, short walk to a beach. It was clean and ok for a single night, wouldn't want to stay longer. The elevator did not inspire confidence.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel but there are better!"
Room was just OK. Bathtub had a flimsy bottom (not solid) so it felt like you were on a plastic moon bounce. In the hotel pictures from the Expedia website show the rooms had flat screens...not true. Maybe for non-Expedia customers?? When I tried to change to a room with a flat screen, none was available. Hotel is conveniently located in very short […] walking distant to the beach and there are some decent eating places within a few blocks or so. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Depending on the situation this is a good option.."
The stay was not a bad experience because the performance and kindness of the staff starting from maintenance to management compensate for it. I do believe that some changes will turn this place around starting from exterminating because I did see a few roaches nothing to panic yet. The continental breakfast was not bad but the coffee needs some upgrade […] it was waterly. The water pressure was weak, which cause to take longer showers. I remember when Howard Johnson was an example of what a hotel should be. I recommended this hotel to my family and my friends especially to everyone that came to PR who worked at American Airlines, United, Continental, and Jetblue. I even recommended the car rental place from down the street and it was a great combination. Now I would think about it and would have to explain how it has changed before I make any recommendations. If money is an issue for the traveler and is just a few days stay due to difficult situations then this will do. Pretty much you get what you pay for. I wish I took photos to post but I was not impressed to take any pictures. I hope and wish management take these suggestions to take action and make some changes because the location of this hotel is excellent. I would love to get some feed back from management of any updates so I can return and even recommend friends since I travel at least four times a year and would love to give you our business.

Hotel was clean and had good service. Bed was comfortable and fairly good size room but small bathroom and slightly dated. Continental breakfast was below par but okay. Not a bad stay for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean Place in Central Location to Rest Your Head"
This hotel is an inexpensive place to rest your head while exploring PR. There are no frills, so don't expect any, but it's clean and located right across the street from a free, public access beach and the bus stop into Old San Juan. There's also a Walgreen's in walking distance as well as some restaurants. We walked down to them at night, though I'm […] not positive it was a "good" area at night. The only reason I say that is because we saw quite a few cops, but that's likely just them taking extra precautions to protect tourists. The pool looks really nice, though we did not have time to utilize it. Our first room did have a faulty security safe and shower, and so we had to change rooms the second day, which was a little bit of a pain, but the staff were friendly about accommodating us. Then, the second room had no wifi, but you can just go out in the hall or lobby if that happens. The continental breakfast is just that - a continental breakfast - toast, cereal, pastries, and oatmeal. Overall, a good experience. Would return if the price stays low.

"Quick getaway to Isle Verde"
The hotel was gracious enough to let us have an early check in without the extra fee. Which helped since our flight landed at 12:45. When we got to the room, the carpet was stained (which is expected), the drapes and the bed covers look well worn as well. The TV in the room turned on and off, up and down as it pleased. So if you fell asleep with the […] TV on, you may wake up to it blasting! The pool was nice. The free breakfast in the morning left much to be desired. The oatmeal looked like soup, the OJ was warm, the cereal was stale. They even had an issue with me taking a (yes, A, as in singular, one) piece of toast down to the room for my boyfriend who wasn't feeling well that morning. The hotel does have an amazing pizza place in the lobby. Great pizza, great prices. They even let us have a late check out (1pm# and held our bags behind the desk while we walked Isla Verde Avenue one last time while waiting for our 5:55pm flight. Some parts of the hotel does have a slight mold/closed up smell and some of the fixtures could use some updating. If you get a room close to the elevator, expect to hear the elevator everytime it opens. Also, if you plan on sleeping in #past 7:30am) expect to hear housekeeping pushing their carts, talking, laughing, slaming doors, etc up and down the hall. Rhina, the bell hop, was amazing.

"Great for the price we paid"
This is not a five-star hotel, which is exactly why my friends and I picked it. It's cheap but decent and the location is quite nice. It's across the street from a beautiful beach and located in an area with many tourists because the blocks are all lined with hotels and inns (such as the swanky Intercontinental and El San Juan). There are tons of local […] restaurants around (I highly recommend Mi Casita) as well as fast food restaurants. Warning: the fast food restaurants are not fast at all. Prepare yourself for long waits. I find the area to be very safe, but it's still best to walk around with at least 1 other person at night. The men aren't shy about vocally showing their appreciation for women. And if you're Asian, you'll be getting extra looks because there are really not many Asians around at all! The hotel staff is very friendly, very patient, and always willing to help. The cleaning staff comes every morning. The free breakfast isn't incredible, but as long as it has fresh fruit and coffee, I'm happy. The hotel pool is very small but still nice if you want to go for a quick dip or want to do a little suntanning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but damp!"
Last minute mini vacation with my 21 y.o daughter; all other hotels were booked solid for the memorial week into the w/end. Price high for the room quality and location. The hotel staff was very courteous, professional and informative. Overall away from the tourist scene, but very accessible to transportation. The room was comfortable with the exception […] that the room had a very moldy smell, and it was always very damp. We packed wet/damp swimsuits and clothes; they just did not dry. Complimentary Continental breakfast was good; Oatmeal was great!! Pool very small, but very clean and comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The people at the front desk, every single one of them, were so serioius it bordered on being rude. There were no greetings of welcome. Just checked you in and sent you on your way. There was one young lady, who was not behind the desk, who was very friendly and always smiling. You should have her teach the rest of the staff some customer service manners. […] The room was ok. It was clean. It is very hard to displease me or get me to critize things, but I did not like the way the check in went at all. It just ruined the rest of my experience at your hotel.

"Not so good if you want to sleep"
It had a nice pool and it was close to the airport and restaurants. That's the good part. The bad part is the nightclub next door blast their live music all hours. We were only staying one night (thank god) and had to get up at 3:30am for a flight. We couldn't sleep with the music playing and it was still going when we left at 4am. The hotel with the […] exception of the lobby and pool, is somewhat dated. We had to book something from our ship because our original hotel overbooked and canceled us. I had to book this on the phone because we had no internet access, and everything seemed to be booked up. I was desperate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel but for no more than 3 person in a roo"
it is in a great location, but i would only recommend you stay there if its you and someone and a kid, its not suitable for more than 3 poeple. and the bathroom door is small so if your big it will be hard to get in. but other than that the hotel is great and the staff are very helpfull and your room is allways clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for a short stay"
Very helpful staff in a great place for Old San Juan and Int'l Airport. What I didn't like was the decor. Simply, it was old and very dated. In fairness, that was also reflected in the priceof the room. We found the staff to be wonderful and nice. If I was there for a week -- I'd spend a little more elsewhere. This was a layover until our flight.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Sleep, potty, then get out to the beach..."
The room was very clean, and had everything I needed; cable tv., fridge, microwave, coffee... Bathroom nice and clean... I stayed on the second floor. The deal was a room with one bed and no window( traveled alone). At the desk I asked for a room with window. Got hooked up, although there were tons of rooms available( in MAY). The fitness room is a […] joke. the pool looks nice, but small. The elevator is an absolute dinosaur. From second floor u can get it to go to first, but to go up to tenth floor for breakfast had to take stairs(Ghetto). View at tenth floor is nice. Food is just snacks... take some pictures and don't go back up there and waste your time. My room was next to elevator(dinosaur), and a loud one at that. I'm use to noise when sleeping, so overcame it well. Real loud in morning though... The locals frown upon the hojo... Great place to sleep and shower and go potty, but that's it. Get out and walk across the street through the little walkway to the beach, then make a right and walk on sand about a block or two to hang with the other tourists in the nicer hotels(intercontinental, el san juan wyndham)...

Bon emplacement (5 à 10 mn de l'aéroport international J. MUNOZ, rue passante, ligne de taxis devant l'hôtel).

Possibilité de diner dans le restaurant italien à l'entrée de l'hôtel, mais sans facilités […] pour les résidents de l'hôtel. Quelques lieux de restauration ainsi qu'un petit commerce à proximité.
