I had to stay at this hotel because my convention hotel was sold out. It's a very old very tired hotel. Room had stains I'm the carpet, the iron is bolted to the ironing board with a security cable so no one steals it (weird). The Ac made a loud banging noise every ten minutes and woke me up all...

This hotel is in a great location, a block from the beach and three blocks from Walmart, Taco Bell, Burger King, Walgreens,CVS etc. The old city is about an hour if you walk and the bus is unreliable. We waited almost two hours for a bus that never showed up. I would recommend renting a car. We rented from Dollar... More

We stayed here while visiting during the San Sebastián festival. It was a nice hotel and the balcony was very pretty at night. The room was clean but the price was a little high for its size. Parking was a pain as the lot is a couple of blocks away and driving a utility van around was difficult. Overall I... More

I have read other reviews that may have been a bit discouraging but we chose to go against the odds, and I must say it surely has exceeded our expectations. Awesome group of staff, friendly and were extremely resourceful when needed. Breakfast was awesome! Great community and so full of life day or night. Everything was within walking distance, stores,... More

We stayed one night in this hotel before a cruise and it was terrible....expensive for what it was, dirty,uncomfortable bed and a shower that just dripped water from it. The noise from the terrace above woke us early in the morning as they set up the breakfast there. Breakfast was included in the price, but forget it, its a joke... More

The hotel is clean inside and out. As soon as you get there you are greeted by friendly staff who gives you coupons to try out the local eateries. The room was clean and cold which was a relief coming in out of the hot humid air. The room was small but had the essentials, bed, dresser, desk, refrigerator, and... More

We stayed at the Quality Inn El Portal for 2 nights in Feb 14-16. There were limited places to stay in San Juan at that time and as such prices were getting up there. We Paid $325 tax in booking thru their corporate web site. This was actually one of the more affordable places in San Juan. The hotel is... More
