Home away from home

This is the third of fourth time we stay at the Howard Johnson in Ponce. We keep coming back because not only the price for our stay is reasonable, but because the employees are very friendly and thrive on pleasing the customers needs. The hotel is clean, easy to locate and with easy access to many locations, e.g. restaurants, main roads, stores, etc.. Every time we visit Ponce we go "back home" to the Howard Johnson, and we expect to do so again, very soon.

The restaurant shall have a more elaborated menu and Staff should strive to welcome guesses when they come in.

Not bad for the price.

It was cheap, and clean. We had to keep food and drinks cleaned up to aviod ants, but it wasn't that big of a deal at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions.

Newly Engaged in Puerto Rico

Although the hotel was accomodating enough to allow us to check-in early, the room we were given had a moldy mildewy smell. We called to ask for another room and it took them to long to come that we ended up having lunch at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant had flies flying, which was very annoying. By the time we checked again all they had done to the room was sprayed air fresher. We finally got a better room, but that put us back on our sightseeing plans. Not a great first impression.

At the center of Ponce at Plaza de las Delicias they offer a trolley tour for $2 a person at the Parque de Bombas. It takes you all around the center and gives you great insight on the history of Ponce. The best part is that the trolley is air-conditioned.

GOOD PLACE TO STAY

The hotel was good, clean, friendly staff. My only problem was that I was charge twice for my room, once by Cheap Tickets, and once by the hotel. But I don't think it was the hotel fault, it was Cheap Tickets fault.
