I found the San Juan Park Hotel to be charming and adequate for our needs. It's not an upscale hotel, but it's cute and clean. It could use a little updating, but if you're just here to sleep and shower, it's fine.
Staff - Nicole, the evening front desk clerk, was so helpful. We knew what we wanted to do, but not how to make it happen. She helped us book a rental car and plan our day in the rainforest. She even printed directions for us and recommended what to take with us. When we asked for restaurant suggestions, she did a little research and made us a list. She was wonderful!
Location - the location is great. It's close to the public beach, a quick bus ride to Old San Juan, close to Condado, and close to car rentals.
Price - we stayed here for $71 per night. I couldn't find anywhere else decent in that price range.
Laundry - after 4, you can use the washer and dryer for free. They're a little old and often still full of the hotels sheets and towels, but it's a nice perk. We stayed here after a cruise and tried to pack light so we needed to do laundry upon arrival. After our day in the rainforest, it was nice to take our wet clothes straight to the washer. Make sure that you bring your own detergent.
Atmosphere - the hotel is small and feels like it. We only saw a handful of other guests during our stay. It feels private and quiet here. The sun deck is nice and usually empty.
Breakfast - free and continental style. Not a great selection, but it's free.
Refrigerator in the room.
Bathroom ventilation - the bathroom has no ventilation and no way to open the window. It gets really steamy in there and takes a long time to clear out.
Bed - the beds leave something to be desired. The mattress pads are slick and the sheets aren't fitted. They kind of slide all over the place during the night. The pillows are pretty flat, too.
Room size - the rooms are tiny. If you don't need a lot of space, it's fine.
Windows - my husband wanted to open the windows to let some fresh air in, but they're locked.
