“Alejandro, the best asset!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I am a repeated costumer of this hotel, and everytime I want to make a reservation Alejandro always help me out. Always with a big smile and a sincere WELCOME BACK attitude that creates business. The breakfast have become a lot better and dinner at La Perla is always a great choice. The Home Office rooms are amazing and very comfortable. A fridge, a microwave and cookies with water makes a big difference. Thanks guys!!

This hotel is old and in drastic need of remodel. TV's are dated cable signal is terrible,carperts are terrible. Wifi is spotty and most of the time disconnects walls look like they have been painted just to hide dirt or mold. Beds are so so if u want a good nights sleep you might need your own pillows. Some of the hotel rooms a/c units make too much noise. The only thing that is good about this hotel is the fact that its right next to PSE Mercedita airport which is very convenient. As most visits if you just need bed then this is for you but for the price its a rip off. The people who work there are excellent with the exception of a front desk clerk that was very rude and sarcastic for the first day of arrival. The hote manager did nothing to fix the situation. At the end of the day this is my go to hotel because of the location. Dont expect any near by if u need to eat its about 2 or 3miles to get decent food. Most customers arrive in the early morning hours they do provide early check it but its point less to pay extra unless you have no where to go. Prepare to carry your luggage to the 2nd floor since there are no elevators. There is a pool but so many people use it that its just nasty to even get in it so dont waste your time. Compared to most hotels these are obvious things that i have noticed and the reason i detail these things is because this hotel is not worth more than 60$ a night max yet they like to charge 80 even 100 or more.

Room Tip: Wifi is spotty and weak A/C's are noisy Rugs are stained No Elevators Walls are thin Tv...

I had to travel to Ponce due to a family emergency. Bought my plane ticket and while en route booked my hotel . I needed two nights nothing fancy not expensive. I found the Howard Johnson Hotel and I called. Mr Ortiz was excellent and helpful. I book one of the lást rooms for two nights. I checked in late and was greeted by a very pleasant front desk attendant. My room was clean very comfortable on the second floor over looking the pool. While I did not use the pool it was huge and clean and very busy after sun set. The hotel has a small restaurant that fits the bill for not having to go out if you dont want to . Service was excellent the room was great, everything worked and it was very reasonably priced. I was here two nights and from now on when on a family tríp to Ponce this will be my home away from home . This is a clean basic reasonably priced hotel with some amenities and just excellent customer service. If you do not come here with 5 star expectation you will not be dissapointed.

Simple, clean, close to airport, clean comfortable rooms, we spent a very pleasant evening and a reasonable price. You should only include breakfast in the price, is very close to the town, so you can enjoy all areas of Ponce
