Pros: nice staff, room is big, pretty clean, free breakfast, good amenities, and my husband left his wedding ring in there and they were nice enough to save it for us. Cons: Didn't refill the coffee at all (we stayed there 2 nights), dirty looking towel, loud heater, and it's right next to a brightly lit gas station with no...

jacksonje85 Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes it was Christmas and many of our staff were home with their families.

This motel is a gem. For one thing, it's a motel, so you can park next to your room. For another, the breakfast rivals any. The rooms are clean and spacious. But the most important asset is the staff - the social capital here is as good as any motel or hotel could ever hope for. (I used to travel...

I've been visiting the area frequently to visit my daughter while she attends CSUMB, and I usually look for the cheapest places, since really, all I need is a place to sleep.. Having tried a number of 'economy' places, I regret not choosing HoJo Marina earlier! This place has been the cleanest/most comfortable, and convenient stays I have had. The...

We are as you have noted value oriented, but after having said that we offer large rooms kept clean and fresh by our super housekeeping team. Sarah puts out a Deluxe...

We were in the area to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The hotel is about 12 minutes away and sells tickets for the aquarium. The tickets are good for two day visit. The hotel was very clean, breakfast was good and the staff was so friendly and courteous! Sara was very helpful and we will be back again! Oh...
