Howard Johnson Hotel Ponce PR
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Ponce
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

The hotel is near the Mercedita Airport and close to Downtown Ponce and the shopping Mall. The hotel is in an industrial zone and in front of the Ponce Interamerican University. The hotel has a Restaurant but I did not go there so could not evaluate. It has a nice pool, Jacuzzi, game room and even a laundry. For me is a hidden gem away from the crowd but yet a close drive. you must have a car to stay here. The hotel rooms are clean and look pretty good. An import note the hotel has two floors but no elevator so if you have mobility problems request a room on the first floor. Very good for families and a good base to sightseeing in Ponce and nearby towns.

Not satisfied with the room. First the room AC was not working properly, we had to turn the t- stat down to 62 dg. For it to work. The room was to cool and when we increase the temperture up to 70, the humidity level increase and Room damp of condensations. Next the TV hasn't been upgraded. Don't know when? Control not working at all. And last we did not like the price of the room, specially when off season, (fall). However, we love the people they were great from the being to the end. Thank PR.

service by employees is excellent, as the room air conditioning and clean bed was fine, the TV is quite old and channel programming was of poor quality, the internet outside the lobby was mediocre, but the hotel has a great location at a good price will definitely stay again

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last few years. Certainly is not a five star hotel but we always have a pleasant experience.This time we stayed for a couple of weeks and again we enjoyed our time there.This year we have only one complaint and is related to the fitness equipment at the Gym area.It was non -existent .All of the machines (treadmill,bicycles etc)were out of order so we could not work out for our entire stay at the hotel.We let the staff know about the problem since the first day but it was never fixed.Other than that everything else was fine.The food at the restaurant was excellent, the pool area was remarkable and the staff very friendly. We will continue to use this hotel for our summer vacation in the next years to come.Location is very important to us , as it is very close to our family in Puerto Rico.

My family and I stayed here. We were a big bunch, so we stayed in several rooms. My experience was excellent. Clean room and bathroom. Plenty of towels. Staff was friendly and very efficient. We asked for additional pillows and blankets, and they came very quickly. The pool is safe for kids, 3 to 5 feet. They have security around the pool. Whirlpool is TOO HOT! The continental breakfast is good. It is not a luxury hotel. It is simple, but perfect. Bad thing: Coffee. Don't drink the coffee from the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view. The others have a parking view... not good.
