A hotel without any personality, and far from everything. I had work nearby, so it was convenient. The lows: Permanent noise!! Rooms overlooking the tiny swimming pool are noisy because of some huge engine they have for who knows what. I woke up at 3 am thinking there was a train station nearby. The sound of screeching metal never stopped.... More

We enjoyed our stay which was our first location on our trip to Panama. Our room was clean and comfortable and overlooked the pool. Being away from the congestion of the city was a plus for us. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We enjoyed a wonderful, reasonably priced meal at a restaurant located right next door (a one minute walk)... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Right next to Miraflores Locks. Staff here is very, very helpful. Especially Cesar who went out of his way to help us several times. It is clean, the food is very, very good and the price is very reasonable. Go there.

My experience with this hotel is limited as I stayed only one night. I had been slightly ill while traveling for 36 hours so when I arrived at the hotel, I went to bed and stayed in bed until my late check out. The front desk staff was courteous, professional, and very accommodating. I was too tired to think straight... More

Went to Panama City, Panama for our 40th class reunion. This was in the Fort Clayton area of the old Canal Zone, almos across the Miraflores locks.

The hotel is in an unusual location – the former grounds of a US military base across the road from the Panama canal and the Panama canal railway. So if you love watching trains and boats from your hotel window, it’s a great location. Just ask for a room on the canal side. The rooms are fine, and the food... More

Typical holiday inn room: clean, modern, comfortable. The restaurant on the ground floor has good food. Staff at front desk was very helpful and informative. I would definitely stay here again if you want to visit the canal. The hotel is located pretty remotely: you can't walk to any restaurants or grocery stores. You'll need a taxi to go anywhere.
