Howard Johnson is a trusted name and we found it to live up to its reputation.
The chair provided for use at the table was extremely uncomfortable. A wooden straight back dining room chair.
I initially booked a room at the 500 west hotel. That was a mistake. It was cramped and unclean so i found the Howard Johnson and in comparison it was amazing. They had a good amount of parking, nice big beds, clean shower, 1000 channels on the television, and was located right by a couple interstates so getting around was easy.
After thinking i was going to be stuck in a closet for a room without ac at the 500 west hotel the Howard Johnson dissent have to reach too high to exceed my expectations. I got to see my navy boyfriend in the comfort of a nice hotel.
Our room was dirty. The bath area floor was visibly dirty and our shoes stuck to the floor. The breakfast was average, but no fresh fruit. The hot tub was barely warm, dirty and only half the jets worked.
The cleaning person was really great in cleaning our rooms
the pool wasnt heated. It wouldve been nice if it was
it was cheap, and the room has everything needed for a short stay.
It was noisy from highway traffic. I had to turn on the fan to sleep more easily.
Reasonable rate, room had microwave and refrigerator, and free breakfast.
Hotel is next to freeway so a little noisy.
clean room parking for free
unconfortable bed, very soft. poor breakfast
clean. The cleaning staff are all kind.
Cheap Convenient to public transport Clean and comfortable enough
The bed was super comfy, the pillows were nice, everything was clean. The tv was awesome and new style...everything was super cozy and nice loved it !
Nothing I didn't like
the room layout the digital cable and the breakfast option
It was close to the freeway.
The beds need to be replaced, they have spots where you sink in and the AC didn't work.
Close to attractions in San Diego.
The neighborhood was not safe.
