Clean with a comfortable bed, simple breakfast options, and convenient location.
Wifi worked, but was a bit slow and irregular.
The staff was friendly and willing to accommodate our needs when asked. Overall stay was just okay.
The door to the bathroom was very squeaky my husband had to ask twice before he came to fix it and then the man didn't seem to know what it needed my husband had to tell him all it needed was some wd40 also the shower was lukewarm it never did get hot, the water in the sink was hot to bad we couldn't take a shower in the sink! and when we told the man about it all he had to say was (I don't know why the water is not hot it should be) and the maid didn't clean the coffee pot or leave us more coffee my husband had to go ask for it and more towels we didn't have enough of those either.
The managers were very friendly and pleasant. Fortunately I was given a room far from the main street and it was totally quiet. Surprised to find granite tile and counters in the bathroom at this price point. I loved getting to make Belgian waffles for breakfast.
I admit I am an environmental nut, but I saw no reason for styrofoam cups and plates; paper would have been adequate. There were "ecocups" with HJ logos in the room, but not in the breakfast room. One of the women in our group went to use the hot tub and it was turned off and there was no signage saying it would be turned off.
Location was fine, beds were great, service was fine
noise was horrible from upstairs guests, wifi was intermittent coffee maker was selective when it wanted to work
location near restaurants and main drag
cheap furniture with small table unable to accomodate electronics
Bathroom was smelling horrible.
The location was great, easy access to highway 1 with plenty of places to shop in Seaside. There was free breakfast and it was ready at 6am! The refrigerator and microwave were also an asset.
The walls are extremely thin and the people next door were talking loudly and laughing until 12:30am, when we had to wake up at 5:30am for our morning flight. The floors were dusty under the furniture and the shower wasn't thoroughly cleaned.
Dirty Cleaning staff was unpleasant and unprofessional. When cleaning our room she took her young son in with her. Complimentary breakfast was gross and old Blankets were cheap Door frame had cracks, seemed to have been kicked down so it felt unsafe
Staff was friendly. Location was good. Room was comfortable and roomy and met all of our needs.
1. hard to find 2. refrigerator not working and couldn't be fixed / replaced 3. Hot tube was cold 4. small parking place 5. laundry not available
Traveled with three teenagers and my husband and had plenty of sleeping room, waffles for breakfast were a nice amenity. Overall comfortable and clean. Staff was very responsive.
Older property but kept fairly clean. Room was listed as two queen beds with couch but ended up three double beds. Wifi worked during the day but couldn't connect in the evening. Ice machine stopped working during our stay.
Staff were great. Beds are comfortable. Nice and clean and quiet. Good locatation for the Monterey peninsula with out the prices!
Can't think of anything. Wait...the ice machine wasn't working for half a day...!
Somewhat quiet Free parking
1. TV was unplugged and when pulling the cord out (and from under dresser) garbage was behind the dresser. 2. The bedside lamp was unplugged and a nasty used tissue was on top of the cord - ewww. 3. We reserved a King, but got a much smaller bed - maybe a pygmy queen? 4. No windows on back side of room - where the ocean is. 5. Locked door out the back of our room that someone with a key could open... 6. Not a lot of channels to choose from on the television 7. Not great TV reception 8. Scratchy sheets 9. Curtains didn't close all the way, so the brightly lit corridor filled room with light. 10. Free breakfast was a joke.
Paid $323 for a room that was only worth $50 there was also a sign in the room stating the maximum we could be charged for a queen bed was $250 room was very small bed was uncomfortable with a sheet and a very thin blanket, refrigerator didnt work hair dryer was out dated & the coffee pot was dirty We expected so much more from a Howard Johnson establishment
Location was okay
Better than nothing
Needs a major facelift. Air conditioner did not cool adequately. Breakfast tasted horrible.
Is on the way, if you want to pass by CA1.
Pretty old installation, and my room stayed just in the corner of the street. I though that a bus will pass over me few times while sleeping. But there are another rooms, that I thing are better.
Staff very helpful
Near a main road and noisy early morning with rubbish collection
Hotel so dirty did not take shower .Mold covering everything in bathroom .Dried food in back of microwave.Zit juice covering both mirrors.Beds so hard because label said manufactured in 1995 .Layer of dirt on everything inside hotel room and outside also.Manager not listening to anything I have to say holding me hostage says he was going to charge my credit card again if I complained.Had to call county health it was so bad.
The rooms were very small and had a very bad smell everything was out dated not worth what I paid for at all
