very impressed by this small hotel overlooking the passing of the ships/vessels crossing the Canal. Clean and very customer oriented. with free shuttle to shopping center and panama canal, and free wifi. Food was good though a bit expensive but Panama overall has gone expensive these past two years. management as well friendly and customer focused.

After having a challenging night at another small jungle hotel, filled with mold, I was thrilled to land at this Holiday Inn. Mind you not the jungle experience, where the other one had wild green parrots near the breakfast lounge, I was thankful for a clean, friendly and top rated hotel. This place delivered.

Great location for experiencing the Canal and the unique tech center city. The area has everything a business traveler needs. Very nice staff, good food and better quality overall than i would expect from a Holiday Inn in the States. I will surely go back.

We were there for 4 days in July with 3 adults and 1 child. The location was great! I believe every room is ocean front. If you want a view of the ocean though you need to ask for a higher floor. We were on the top floor and it was great. We had a one bedroom King suite that... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times per year as I conduct business in Panama City and the City of Knowledge. My usual stays are about 5 days. After just a few visits you can eventually determine if a hotel is poor, good or excellent. This hotel is excellent. Clean, quiet, very organized, and secure. All staff are pleasing,... More

I stayed here for business while in Panama. This hotel is close to the canal locks and lots of decent restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is clean and the staff is professional. It is a bit outside the city so you'll need a car or to use a taxi to get around.

I spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal because I wanted to see the Canal and Panama City. It is located literally right across the highway from the Canal and probably less than a mile from the Miraflores locks.
