The Howard Johnson in Plaza de Armas was a nice place to stay for a couple of days in Old San Juan. The price was very reasonable and the staff was very helpful. This is a remodeled, older hotel, so rooms are small, without windows, but the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. I think it was a good value for the price and you can't beat the location. The continental breakfast is pretty sparse (bread, a few apples and bananas, coffee, and juice), but it was a decent way to start the day. The elevator is one of the old, small, creaky ones that you pull a gate across, so it is a good idea to ask fro a room on a lower floor so you don't have to use the elevator.
The picture shown on this site is not the HoJo Plaza de Arms. It's actually a very discreet entrance between a cigar shop and a souvineer shop that is easy to miss.
