The spacious rooms are the only thing worth staying at this place. The restaurant’s staff was rude to us and proved to be inefficient when they made a mistake with our order and refused to solve anything. If you want good service, this is not the place for you.

This is hotel is disgusting !!! Horrible staff and management is nonexistent . This hotel is run down and filthy . I called numerous times to speak management and still haven’t spoken with anyone it’s been 7 days . The staff even lied about their names and stop answering the front desk phone because they wouldn’t allow me to speak with a manager . Oh yeah and the shower had pee in there upon checking in and they refused to change room . Enclosed is more pictures of this horrible place .

I received the best of attention in this hotel, from the reception to the room maids, they were all very friendly and helpful during my stay. I also spent a few days in another holiday inn in Panama, one that is more downtown and the stay was extraordinary thanks to the staff as well.

Our first time to Panama & we loved it. The Holiday Inn offered a great view of the canal! The staff were amazing! Courteous, prompt and did everything possible to help us out. The room was clean, comfortable & spacious. However, we had absolutely no hot water for showers. The water wasn’t freezing cold, but a little hot water would have been nice.

The Holiday Inn Panama Canal is right across the road from the canal. It is next to the City of Knowledge. Rooms are reasonable priced, restaurant has a great breakfast. Front desk staff was awesome- Doris took care of our large group very efficiently and very courteous.

This Holiday Inn is in an area that used to be an old US military base and is now a nice housing area. Some decent food options within walking distance of the hotel and you can also walk around the grounds and see quite a few nice bird species. The views of the ships passing in the Panama Canal are very nice. You do not even need to leave your room. Friendly and helpful staff too.
