4/5/2014 I stayed here for over a month as I was working in Santa Isabel. Let's start with breakast... they say it starts at 6am, but it NEVER does. Sometimes they don't get the food out until 630... which is included in the room, but if you can't eat it because you have to work at 7 it gets a... More

I travel to Puerto Rico a couple of times a year and thought I would visit a new city, so I picked Ponce. Now I know after talking to a number of Puerto Ricans that Ponce is more of a business town, not so much a vacation spot. I initially had a reservation at the Hilton, but I changed it... More

We ended up at the Holiday Inn for a night in Ponce on an around-the-island drive. Our first choice was unavailable, so it really was our second choice. We were pleasantly surprised by a very comfortable room with fridge and microwave, quiet, efficient AC overlooking the pool. The small balcony was a nice surprise. Hotel was well maintained and the... More

After reading reviews of Ponce and thinking it was a cultural area of Puerto Rico we booked the Holiday Inn for one night. The hotel is up on a hill with gorgeous views of the Caribbean. The pool is very large with tons of seats so you won't have to look for a nice place to camp out. Our room... More

I stayed here with my wife for a one night getaway while visiting her family in Coamo. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We spend just one night after visiting some relatives around the island. Our intention was to get a good sleep to continue our journey. And so we did, comfy beds, clean room and very nice view from our room.

We spent a couple nights here as we were not able to get into the Ponce Hilton for all of the nights we wanted to be here. This is a clean motel and is what you would expect from a Holiday inn. It has an unadorned pool area, large for a motel. Very nice view. This is not a destination... More
