San Juan Motels
Does anyone have any comments of staying at the Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn in San Juan? We are looking for one day pre-cruise. Also any suggestions on inexpensive eateries and suggestions of things to do? We get there at 1pm on Saturday and ship doesn't leave until 10pm so have lots of time to explore!

kclvt are you leaving Sat or Sun, as you did not state this? If you are staying overnight, it would depend where you may like to be for location, what you want to spend, and what you have in mind and what kind of experience you are looking for. We have stayed in downtown Old San Juan, enjoyed a small hotel and saw lots of great things and there is free transportation going through the streets in to the forts. You can jump on and off and see lots. Also there are many authentic restaurants in this area. We have been to the rain forest and been on several other tours, including the bioluminecent kayak

Hotel in Old San Juan
We flew to San Juan and booked a room with a family owned hotel right in the heart of old San Juan where we could spend a couple of days exploring the forts, etc. It was 2 blocks from the port where we could just walk over to it and go on our 7 day cruise. The hotel was super clean, very nice people and a nice breakfast every morning. The name is Hotel Milano. They have a web sight or I would be happy to send you the phone number.

Hi Baby Doll. In my previous post, the actual hotel that I was referencing was the Hotel Milano that we spent 2 fun filled days at prior to a cruise a couple of years ago. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay as much as we did and to know that it is still providing a great room with a reasonable price that allows one to be part of Old San Juan and be so close to all the attractions, not to mention great close by restaurants to enjoy.

San Juan Motels - old San Juan has the lovely Sheraton Old San Juan directly across the street from one of the Piers - you can literally walk out front door of hotel and get in line to board ship. If you are at the other pier ( # 4 - I think it is can't remember - number - but it is named Pan American, then you need to take a cab to that Pier if you decide to stay at the Sheraton Old San Juan (there is a bus but it stops a couple of blocks from the pier). If you stay at the Old San Juan Sheraton, then you are in the middle of everything. You can shop until you drop in Old Town, walk up to the fort, check out Coach, Mexx, all the normal stores and also all the touristy shops. There is a major chain drug store across from the pier, everything like back home in one of the 50 States. We arrived in San Juan a few days earlier, we stayed at the Hampton Inn near airport, very modern spot, free breakfast, internet, etc. rented a car and navigated; went to the beach which was a block and a half from hotel, hit the casino across from the our Hampton Inn In Isla Verdes, walked on the main drag of Isla Verdes, had a myriad of restaurants (Chilies, etc. to choose from). Hey, we were sticking to American and not getting sick prior to the cruise) LOL. Went shopping at the Los America Mall (rivals any mall in FLA) and had a blast only to return to San Juan a couple of days later because our cruise ship ran out of steam - LOL
