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

Our 12-day exploratory trip to Panama involved driving to meetings in the city as well as forays to different parts of the country. The hotel at Miraflores lock provided a convenient location for moving about, as well as a peaceful haven at the end of the day and a great place to watch ships transiting the canal Breakfast at the...

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. It is about 10 km out of Panama City and in a pretty quiet neighborhood that is actually a... More

Gorgeous grounds and breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Outstanding service and onsite dining. Only steps away from soft, sugar white sandy beach and warm clear bluegreen water. Lovelier than Mexico!

This hotel was the perfect location for us to explore the Miraflores locks at the Panama Canal and the Panama Canal Museum. These are located just a few miles out of the city and the hotel is right across the road and provides free shuttle to the locks twice a day. Staff was incredibly helpful and spoke English, which I... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The staff was superfriendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of healthy options which I really appreciated. We spent our time visiting the Gamboa rainforest resort and went for a trip up the Panama canal and got to see crocodiles, turtes and monkeys. Furthermore, I can also recommend visiting the... More

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the Mirafores locks and the good reviews on tripadvisor. The view of the locks is not great and the proximity is not a good enough reason to book this hotel. We are a family of 4 and we tried to book on several websites but they prevented us from booking 4... More

We were impressed with the overall experience here. Nice staff, above - average breakfast, clean floors and bathroom. Highly recommend it for the price. We had a deadline but would have liked to stay longer!

After an all-night flight by way of El Salvador, arriving in Panama City, viewing the beautiful oceanfront accommodations, passing through the less savory parts of town, we finally arrived at the Holiday Inn. Where the heck are we? Having a transfer driver who, maybe, spoke two words to us didn't help. First impressions of this hotel are not good. It... More
