Howard Johnson Hotel Ponce PR
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Ponce
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We stayed at the Howard johnson hotel the week of the 17TH of January. The people at the restaurant very friendly and the breakfast very good,We really liked the morning waitress and waiter there at the restaurant so very nice,they make you want to come back,They always remember us and greet us all the time, But the young guy at the front desk,not so nice,There was a party going on at the time and the music was very loud We had asked a couple of time to let the DJ know that it was very loud,exspecially when they open the door to go to the restroom,His response was we have a contract with them, Well so does all the people that stay there,Then he said well I can change your room for 2nd floor,Well we had already changed rooms not too long after we got there,because of the ants,All we asked or suggest is if you are having any kind of party there Don't you think you need to let the customers know when they arrive,That way they can decide if they can tolerate the noise or not, or if they need to go to a different area,We were also hearing it from the 2nd floor people staying there. The lady at the front desk was also very nice,thank you so much for helping us with the airlines tickets,She was busy,But still had time to help That's what Customer Service is all about.We did like our room,But carpets do need cleaning.The pool was nice and the hot tub was hot like it should be. I would like to suggest that maybe you can keep your restaurant open also on Sunday all day.

Room Tip: Please ask if there will be any fiestas going on that week First floor rooms are very close to the...

had a very good stay for 2 nights. the workers at the front desk were always very nice and polite. i requested a quiet room on the second floor, not facing the pool, and the room was very quiet- good for sleeping. i could sometimes hear a neighbor's tv when they had the volume loud.
the tv only had a few channels and didn't have nbc or abc- i'd expect a better selection.
everything in the room was clean and it was a large room.the grounds and pool area were cared for very well. it was nice to have a free newspaper daily and a business center to use their one computer and printer.
the rate was good for ponce- i wouldn't pay more to stay at a swankier hotel.

Overall the hotel was attractive inside and out and staff was very friendly. However, the restaurant needs some sprucing up, especially the carpeting which looked very worn out. The rooms were musty at our arrival, but better later on. No elevators. The staircase we had to use had a sour smell most of the time. The restaurant did not provide lunch although they have a lunch menu. The pool and pool area was clean and the setting very pleasant and relaxing.

I would recommend this hotel for those on a budget seeking good accomodations. Good location. Very close to Ponce airport and all tourist attractions.

The hotel is in a great location, but the night we got there , there was no water in the hotel and staff gave us water bottles. We suggest to the hotel to get a water tank, just in case.
