S.J. Suites
Ranked #44 of 47 Hotels in San Juan
Reviewed 10 March 2012

We stayed at S.J. Suites the night before our cruise and definitely recommend it as a pre-cruise stay choice. We checked in very late due to a late flight and they had no problem holding our room and were very pleasant when we checked in.The hotel is in the heart of OSJ which made our next day touring very easy! They allowed us to store our luggage after our check out so we could tour all day until we were ready to board the cruise ship.The hotel itself is very simple and the room and bathroom had the bare essentials but were both clean. The only issue we had was that my parents were staying at a different hotel and we made plans to call hotel to hotel to make plans to meet up the next morning and there was no phone in our hotel room (or alarm clock)! This was a first for me but the front desk staff were great and let me use their phone to make my calls. This is a great budget hotel in the middle of OSJ and it makes a great one nighter before a cruise.

We stayed here the night before we left on a cruise and found this place to be perfect for that. Its certaintly nothing fancy but it was somewhere to store our luggage and rest. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. When we checked in we were given a map of Old San Juan and had all the sites and interesting places pointed out to us. We thought this was great and really helpful. The next day we were due to check out at 11am but our ship wasn't ready for boarding until 3pm so we asked if they had somewhere for us to store our luggage and were told we could stay in our room until we were ready to leave for the ship at no extra charge. The service at this hotel was fantastic and extremely friendly. The location is right in the heart of Old San Juan and everything you will want to see is within a few minutes walk. If you're not looking for luxury, and just want some where comfortable to sleep in a great location then this is the place for you!

This hotel is steps to all of OSJ. Ray on the desk was very friendly and assured us he would adjust the sub arctic a/c in our 5th floor room. Nothing was done but the room was clean, unfortunately windowless and hostel-like for the price.

First, the good things about our room. The bathroom was very good and clean. The rest of the hotel room was clean,as well as the Lobby. For the not so good, the room was smaller than I thought it would be. One member of our group had even a smaller room. They were not happy with their room. If you can, choose your room carefully. The worst thing about this hotel, was the outside of it. A set of barracades litter the front of the hotel. We thought maybe it was under construction, but it turns out only the owners are allowed to park there. This and the lack of maybe a new paint job really degrade this hotel. The location however, is just great.

When you need a room for a night, this is a place to go. Great location in old San Juan, centrally located. Nothing fancy, bed was comfortable. Entrance doors are kept locked, you need to be buzzed in. Desk is on the second level (elevator works, unlike some hotels in OSJ). Walls and doors are thin and sound travels quite well...we listened to an episode of NCIS from the next room. Fortunately, they turned the tv off at a reasonable hour.
