We stayed at the Howard Johnson for one night on the way out of Puerto Rico because we had a very early flight and didn't really care about the room. It was approx. $132 (inc. taxes, etc.) and would have cost around $80 in the US mainland but everything is overpriced in Puerto Rico. The room had no windows and was very small. It was, however, extremely clean. The check-in took a while because the one and only person there was on the phone with someone else. It is centrally located but parking is a problem. They suggest a parking lot 3 blocks away. We drove around a bit and, fortunately, found something in front but only because we were planning to leave at 6 a.m. so the reserved parking spots were not being enforced. Only the rooms facing the front street have windows. If you're looking for something centrally located, don't want to pay too much AND you don't care about the ambience, then this is fine. Otherwise, it's an overpiced average hotel.
