I was amazed I liked being out side the city but this is a great hotel, food was good and service great. You are completely out of the city but you watch the boats getting ready to go through the canal all day. Totally different experience.

I stayed at this hotel on 2 separate times during the month of September 2013. The second stay was a result of the experiences I had on the first stay. The service was outstanding. I do not speak much Spanish, but the hotel staff would go out of their way to find ways to communicate with me or find Robert... More

We had to organize a Regional Meeting and selected Holiday Inn at the Panama Canal as our venue for both the event and for the participants to stay over for 3 days from 1 to 3 October 2013. Service was excellent, facilities were very good, great food at the restaurant and during the breaks. But most important, the courtesy and... More

I choose this hotel because it was the closer (and better) to the miraflores locks and we really wanted to visit the panama canal. We requested a Canal View room which we had and in a high floor and was simply amazing, will sure come back again

I've spent few nights at this hotel in July while I was on a biz trip to Panama. It's extremely clean and comfortable (Holiday inn style). Downsides: room doors are so noisy, and when your neighbors enter or exit their rooms, it makes so much noise. A bottle of water in the room was 8$!! Make sure you buy one... More

There is pretty much only one place to stay in Clayton, and it is Holiday Inn City of Knowledge. What made the experience tolerable is the proximity to Miraflores Locks and the Canal visitor's center. If you have time and intentions to visit this site, the stay at the hotel is worthwhile. Or if you are on business in Clayton,... More

Highlights 1. Close to the Miraflores Locks and Visitors Center - for us this was the key reason to stay there. 2. Close enough to the canal that one can occasionally see stacks of cargo containers moving across the landscape (but it's really hard to see the ship that is carrying them). 3. Many of the staff are students at... More

I have enjoyed being in the city and out of the city, this is a great choice for being out of the city as it is close to the canal and the hotel is clean and pretty new. I took a time lapse of the Miraflores locks out my window (at a distance) while working and got some near pictures
