I Like To Be In A-mer-i-ca

... around 6am by Saturday night partiers returning to the B&B, and an old lady who for whatever reason decided to do her morning rosary on my couch. Out loud. Over my sleeping body. Apparently I need saving.

After multiple (MULTIPLE) cups of coffee, we decided to take a public bus into Old Town San Juan. Our Lonely Planet guidebook, in the first of several attempts to f**k us over on this trip, said not to waste $15 on a 10-minute cab ride; the local bus is just 75 ...

San Cristabal Castle

... helped build the castle. I was told that it took a little over 127 years to complete. There were along with the Africans, Cubans, off duty soldiers, prisoners and civilian craftsmen. I looked at the many pictures of the slaves and how they lived. The houses were built upon stilts in the water and they looked rather poorly. It was a site that I was glad I was able to ...

Reflections on San Juan

We had five days in San Juan and I think this allowed us enough time to get a good feel for the rhythm of life here. Old San Juan is a pretty touristy place but it is lovely too so I enjoyed spending time here. On our last day we drove out to Rio Piedras with a guy called Wade from our hotel. He told us about a wonderful market that was meant to be there and after researching it a bit on the web we decided to go, offering Wade a lift. Turns ...

What a fantastic place.

... our flight having to transfer to a Dominica flight in Antigua (hope you’re keeping up), he’s going to take them there directly. Maybe if I ask him nicely he’ll take us directly to St
Maarten a well?. What do you think. Anyway, the chances of them (whoever they are) sorting through and then unloading the correct luggage in Dominica. Taking off again and this time going to where we all thought we were going in the first place and getting us to Antigua ...

San Juan, Puerto Rico

... with a dome in the middle and legislative chambers on each end.

The Puerto Rico Capitol’s rotunda is beautiful – as grand as you’d see in many of the state capitols. I was awed, not realizing the island had such a magnificent structure to house the legislative branch of its territorial government. The Puerto Rico Constitution is displayed in a circular glass case in the center while the dome ceiling is full of colorful paintings and tileworks. I was one ...

    Good, clean, consistent

    This is our second visit here, both before we left on cruises. A lot of people seem to stay here before their cruise, it's convenient and affordable. There was a large group of people traveling together who made breakfast crazy, so we walked to a restaurant and had a leisurely breakfast rather than fight the crowd. Room was clean and comfortable.

    Terrible Experience

    from

    We were promised a fridge, before we arrived, for my husband's food samples for a business meeting. Upon arrival, they said they have to fridges. Charged for parking, but there was no parking because spaces were all blocked in and they don't bother to have the violators towed. AC stopped working, faucet handle kept coming off, tub liner leaked and it felt like you were standing on a water mattress, fumigators came in and sprayed while we were in the room, even before we told them the room had bugs, some staff very unfriendly. Would never stay here again.

    Not all that

    from

    ´╗┐Me & My Family Stayed for Spring Break April 2004, First of All the Room Is Sooo Small You Have No Space. Then There Was this Horrible Smell, Problems with the Pipes in the Bathroom. We Tried to Have Our Room Changed, but That Wasnt Possible We Called the Front Desk to Complain and All We Got Was a Deordizer Spray That Really Didnt Help. The Free Contiental Breakfast Is Ok. The Swimming Pool Is Also Small and When We Tried to Get in the Jacuzzi the Water Was Boiling Hot That My Skin Burned. The Staff Speak English Which Is Good, but I Think There over Priced and We Werent Satisfied. We Would Not Stay There Again!

    Low price, but you get what you pay for

    from

    I wasn't crazy about this hotel, and I'm not that picky about my hotels/hotel rooms. We stayed here because it was the cheapest rate we found for San Juan. The first night we were right by the maids' station, so it was VERY noisy early in the morning! The hotel rooms were kind of dark and grimy; peeling paint, burned out lightbulbs; poor ventilation. I wouldn't stay here again if I could help it.

    PROS: inexpensive; close to the beach; nice pool area; large rooms; lots of cable channels

    CONS: dark, dingy rooms that could use some maintennance; apathetic staff; small elevators that take forever; hotel has a "lived-in" feel

    Holiday Inn Express

    from

    Hotel is in a very central and convenient location. Within walking distance of Wyndham Condado and Marriott. Also a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. My room was reserved and paid for with Priority Club points. Stayed two nights, but non-consecutive. Check-in was smooth on both occasions. Parking is kind of a hassle. The hotel has very limited parking and it is not accessible until you check in and get access from the front desk. In the meantime, you most likely will have to park illegally, but it didn?t seem to matter in San Juan. Parking is $10 a day; I was not charged for it on my 1st stay, but was on the 2nd. The 2nd room I had must have recently been renovated. Everything seemed new. It was decorated very nicely, but the rooms are very small, as is the bathroom. Free continental breakfast was very good ? breads, danish, bagels, juices, coffee and hard boiled eggs. Pool is small, but very nice, surrounded by several lounge chairs. Overall the staff was very nice and helpful. I would stay there again.

    Tiny rooms and elevators, but good price/location

    from

    No parking when we arrived. By some miracle, we found street parking.

    Two small elevators for a fairly large hotel, and there aren't any service elevators, so it's sometimes quite a chore getting to your room, especially with luggage. Our 6th floor rooms were quiet and had a peek-a-boo view of the ocean. The rooms were clean but so small that you could only open suitcases on your bed, and you had to squeeze by one bed to get to the other. The pool area was surprisingly nice, as was the continental breakfast. Overall, a reasonable budget choice if you like to be near the Condado action, but don't expect a lot of room, luxury, or parking.

    Pleasant, great pool area...

    from

    My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in feb. 2004-the room was comfortable and the pool area was great-it has a fountain going into the pool and a hot tub right next to the pool, the area was enclosed and very private....except for parking which was a real problem as it seems to be on most of the island, we had a pleasant stay. Would recommend this location as it is close to shopping, restaurants, beach area.

    Great location/nice rooms

    from

    The Holiday Inn Express (formerly the Comfort Tanama Princess) is a seven-storey hotel in the Condado region and only a short walk to the ocean. The rooms are super-clean and boast the largest king-sized beds I have ever seen (and I've lived and travelled on 3 continents!) The hotel has a lovely little outdoor pool (clean!)and whirlpool (hot!) and the continental breakfast is included! Internet price: $107US. I've read all the hotel reviews for San Juan and so many visitors are paying exorbitant prices for unacceptable lodging! We stayed here twice on layovers to and from DR...no disappontments!

    Tanama should be your last resort

    from

    This was easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The only thing it has going for it is price. My list of things that were wrong with the place is long, but it includes bugs, unhappy staff, unhelpful staff and a dirty room. Stay here only if you can find nothing cheaper.

    Under renovation, Everything could be cleaner, Great location, Close to Ocean Beach

    from

    (787) 724-4160 New furniture and paint in rooms , some cosmetic details in renovation have been overlooked. The bathroom door hinges were covered in rust. Baseboard trim was falling off the wall. Construction materials were stored in the stairwells but you could get past the stored items. Dirt/Grim on floor in corners of Elevator and rooms. Vending machines & hair dryer not working. A/C, Cable TV, Outdoor Pool & Whirlpool, 2 small slow elevators. Continental breakfast ok. Small excercise room. 5 to 10 Minute walking distance to Walgreens, Pizza Hut, Wendys, Subway, Mariott Hotel, or other nice resturants or small grocery stores. Ride the city bus to Old San Juan for 25 cents. Ride the trolley thru Old San Juan for free. Both make several stops. Front Desk will call a taxi for you if needed. Taxi's have set rates. Reservations (888) 826-2621

    Great value for a nice room

    from

    The rooms where clean a newly remodeled. They are still cleaning up the outside of the hotel but this should be completed in a month or so. They are a continental breakfast but it was very light. The staff was helpful and considerate. Room service was provided every day. I will definitely stay here again.
