    Exceptional

    Close to freeway and easy access to everything in the Seaside/Monterey/Carmel areas. Clean, the bedding smelled so good! Comfortable bed and updated room design. Comfortable shower. Refrigerator and microwave. Close to a shopping mall (Taco Bell, Target, Ross, groceries, etc.) for anything we forgot. Nice continental breakfast: cereal, juice, coffee, muffins, waffles, needs to add ice in the line up.

    Very tight parking lot. Needed to drive to beach.

    It was an ok room.

    The staff told us the hot tub worked and just to take the cover off. My boyfriend got in while I went over to turn on the heat. I then seen a sign that said the hot tub had been closed by the health department! Later I asked for an extra pillow. They said no. Then I asked for a laundry bag or trash bag. They would not let me buy one or give me one.

    The room was very dirty and worn out. I asked for extra towels for use with the Jacuzzi tub and was grudgingly given one towel only. I asked for a dining recommendation and was directed to the Taco Bell across the street.

    Staff were friendly.

    The room had a bad odor even though it was a non smoking, beds were extremely uncomfortable which caused major backaches, and eventhough it states in writing extra beds for kids available free of charge we were not accomodated, queen beds seemed like full size and they really need to check and confirm they are truly the size we were charged for. The air conditioner made a loud noise but blew no cold air. We really would never book another room at any Howard Johnson Inn even if the price was cheaper!

    Not much. Fairly low budget and minimal.

    the bed was horrible and left both my wife and I with very sore backs. The room had a bit of an oder about it...musty at best.

    Hot tub was not working. Room was gross had bad smell and dirty. At night it was so noisy and front desk never knew or could not answer any questions. TV didn't work and it took the front desk more than 1 hour to come take a look at it. Instead they told us to move next door,which we did room was even worse and TV didn't work either. I will never come back here again and I recommended other people not to go here either.

    Fabulous

    The price was right for what it was. Good location.

    The size of the room. It was like a large walk-in closet. The parking lot feels the same.

    I was happy that they actually had availability on such a busy weekend, but it was for obvious reason that they weren't booked. I liked that they offered a continental breakfast in the morning.

    The beds weren't very clean, the bathroom was not clean either. There was some stain down the wall in the bathroom where something had been spilled on it. The chain lock was completely broken. The hot tub smelled like mildew and there was tons of weird floaties in the water. My son did not feel safe staying in this hotel.

    Very good

    We liked the breakfast and enjoyed the location of the property. There was a Target store for anything we might have forgotten. The property was close to all the coastal beauty without paying those extreme prices.

    If there was one thing I could mention negative. I'd have liked the bathroom a bit cleaner. But all in all a wonderful buy for the buck.

    The bed was comfortable and the room had a refrigerator and microwave.

    There were no bath towels; we had to ask for them. They said, "Come here and get them". I did (they were very flimsy) and then had to ask for washcloths. He said, "Come tomorrow and get them". We could not get more than 5 channels on the TV. We asked the cleaning folks about the TV, but they didn't understand English.Our neighbor blasted his TV beginning at 3:30 am. We called the desk and they said they will call him. The neighbor then only turned down the volume, but we could hear the TV all night. We will avoid Howard Johnson's in the future.

    Zero accommodation if asking for a late check out. Participated in the Monterey Half Marathon, and knew I would need extra time to get through the race and wait for my friends that were also running it, have lunch and get back to the hotel to shower/change and check out. Was told that noon is check out, no extensions. The room itself was quite noisy, heard the neighbors TV all night long. For the price of the room, felt the standards could have been a bit more up to par. Not many rooms were available, and I booked the closest hotel near Monterey. This would not be my choice next time.
