The quality matches the price. The rooms were not filthy, but not super clean either. There was breakfast, which was fine. The service was a little strange. There was no response to our email to change our booking (and as a result they charged us the extra night) and the woman at the desk didn't generally seem that interested in...

We stayed in a suite with 2 rooms..The place was neat and clean but the bathroom had some towels left behind by the cleaning staff. The complimentary breakfast had the essentials- waffles, cereals , apple and tea/coffee/juice. The location, however, seems to be a little shady, especially at night, although we did not have any unpleasant experience. All in all,...

I was a little disappointed in the hotel because I tried to use a coupon from a hotel coupon magazine and was told they didn't have any of those rooms available. I had looked up hotels on our way down on Trivago and it quoted me $95 for the room with 4 rooms open for check in. When I showed...

For an affordable stay Howard Johnson was perfect! Near many places to eat and gas stations. It is a quick trip to Canery Row also. Front desk man pleasant but hard to understand through his broken English. Our room was downstairs and in a good location. Visited the jacuzzi too which could have been a warmer temp but was nice...

Got to room for late check-in and dirty towels left by previous occupant, had to call front desk to come pick up. Bathroom smelled like pee around the toilet. The beds felt like cots and could feel the springs. Free breakfast was descent especially with the waffle maker.

Dear ceparrish76, Thanks for staying with us, we're glad that you enjoyed our breakfast. We'd like to take a moment to remind you that sanitation and cleanliness are important to us. All of our rooms are thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis. It is strange and rare thing that our room service team had left the towels back after cleaning...
