Worth the stay

Stayed at howard johnson for 3 nights, no issues with location or hotel, there are couple of good restaurants within walking distance. We were out all day on visit to PR and had good sleep and breakfast at hotel. breakfast is served on 10th floor which has nice view of beach at corners. Carlos at front desk was helpful in taking our request of room change to higher floor with better view. If you are looking for room in san juan area closer to airport and beach you can pick this one!

New Years Eve getaway

The hotel was fine, continental breakfast was included. Location was great, pool was small. Hotel staff very helpful, check in and out quick. View from our room was nice, overlooking the main street. Fun trip.

disappointing...

Was a really pleasant lobby but room was less than satisfactory. Bedsheets had stains, bathtowels were rough and bathtub had some lining which was bubbling. They kindly changed my room but the second tub had the same problem. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone especially foe the price point.

But on the upside it is located in great location the beach entrace is just across the street, clubs, restaurants plus the personal are great.
