Here are some reviews of our hotel

Value hotel in great location
My wife and I and another couple stayed at the SJ Suites for 1 night before departing for a cruise out of San Juan. All of us thought the hotel was clean, friendly and was a great value. We enjoyed staying in Old San Juan and the convenience of the restaurants and nightlife in the evening followed by the shops and sightseeing during the day. True, the TV didn't have reception, but I can watch TV at home. We stayed out late and got up early. The staff was very friendly. They provided us with a safe room for a luggage in the morning so we could venture out. I will certainly stay with SJ Suites before our next cruise.

SJ Suites is a great basic hotel for the budget minded, in old San Juan
SJ Suites Hotel is in Old San Juan (Viejo San Juan) - an ideal location for exploring all of San Juan and for consulting the Tourist Information Office, to book tours to other parts of the island. The hotel is very clean, and for folks looking for your basic hotel - a clean, nice place to rest, near all types of restaurants and fun things to do - you cannot beat this hotel. Everything is within walking distance from the hotel. The beds were comfortable in the hotel, water pressure in the shower is strong, and it was very quiet. The staff is very helpful, especially Raymond. The front desk is not staffed late at night and very early in the morning, if that makes a difference to you - it did not to us. This was a reasonably priced hotel in a great location - if I ever return to San Juan, I will definitely try to stay here again. It sure beats paying double or triple the cost and staying out in Condado, a $ 12 taxi fare from Old San Juan. Between its reasonable price, cleanliness, comfort and location, it was everything we were looking for.

Don't believe the negative reviews - lovely hotel.
We stayed in the SJ Suites one night, before we left for a cruise. It was a wonderful hotel. If you're expecting 4 stars, you will be disappointed, but it's a clean hotel with an AMAZING location, which you can't beat. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. We had a very long day of traveling (our original flight was canceled, & we dealt with delays all day) & we were so happy to arrive & clean up. The staff was really friendly, & recommended some great places to eat & walk. 

The bathroom was very nice, with a built in hairdryer. The shower was clean. The room didn't offer a great view, but you shouldn't be spending much time in your room with so much to do just steps away from the hotel. Walking around at night was fine, we felt very safe. There was a lot going on down by the harbor, with a lot of locals and tourists walking around. Don't miss down by the water at night, it was lovely. 

The bed was a little hard for my taste, but we slept wonderfully - very quiet. We walked around in the morning & the staff stored our luggage in a locked room so we didn't have to worry about toting it around after checking out. 

We really can't say enough about the staff - the front desk manager insisted we take a cab to our ship (we were going to walk) which saved us - it was a long, long, LONG walk, being that our ship was on the other side of the harbor. He even took time out of his lunch break to help us hail a cab. Very friendly, accommodating. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Perfect spot!!! This hotel is in the heart of San Juan. It's on the perfect spot. The room was great! It was big for what you usually get. The price was also excellent. The staff was very friendly and willing to help or give ideas on what to do or places to visit. I would go back in a heartbeat. It doesn't have a pool, but if you really don't mind...it is the perfect spot to adventure in Old San Juan..;)-Karma1977
Good place to stay The location of the hotel is great, everything at walking distance. Room were spacious and clean. I would definitively stay there again. Good price for the location of the hotel.-yperdomo
great locationSimilar to European style hotels. Few fancy amenities, but very comfortable. If you are looking for a "live-in" hotel, this is not it. If you want a comfortable place to sleep, it is perfect. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Close to the best shops and restaurants.- 3 friend
Location, location, location! SJ Suites is located in the heart of Old San Juan. We were able to walk all over town. We loved it. The staff was very helpful. They gave us tips on where to go eat and places to visit. They kept our luggage in a secure area because we were there early and they also watched our luggage on the day we checked out. If you plan on staying in the hotel room all day, then this is not the hotel for you. But if you are looking for a good price and a central location then this is the place. My friends and I just go with the flow and we don't get frazzled because the TV doesn't get all the channels we get at home or because the continental breakfast wasn't to our liking. We enjoyed our stay there and would't hesitate to stay there again.-Maggie
