After cruising through the island very tiered and hungry we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn at Ponce. Best choice we could ever made. The staff was very courteous and made an extra effort for our enjoyment. Room service was very good and fast. Definitely will stay again and again. And best of all they give military discount!!!!

This hotel location is out by itself with nothing within walking distance. The attached casino is cheesy. Rooms are on the old side. I wouldn't stay there again. I had an issue with the complementary breakfast and staff were not empowered to make decisions.

I spent 30 days in this place on a business trip. The rooms are clean. The staff is courteous and helpful. Food in restaurant way over priced! Like another reviewer had stated, the problem is the noise. Maids slamming doors, people running up and down halls yelling. The sweet screech of power tools as renovations are being preformed. The icing... More

Ants and lizards in the room. Shower clogged. We didn't got free continental breakfast. Almost 3 dollars for a coffee it the restaurant. The first three days the main elevator was out of order. The parking was always packed full. Hard to get a spot. Noisy at night with people slamming doors and talking loud.
