Newly renovated roomPosted Nov 18, 2013
Location: Downtown San Diego is close, beach very near along with many other things.
We were given one of the newly renovated rooms. It was a pleasure. Carpet was new, mattress was new, bathroom was updated. Very nice!

Average hotel, across from the beach.Posted Nov 4, 2013
Nice room. Carpets were dirty and refridgerator had loud humming noise. Couldent sleep. On the plus side it had a microwave, refridgerator, coffee maker, ironing board, hair blow dryer, and free wifi and free breakfast. Nice location.

Nice hotel close to wedding venuePosted Oct 22, 2013
Pros: Distance from the beach and freeway.
Cons: More availability in rooms. Better selection for Continental Breakfast.
Location: Located down the street from the beach, and right off the 5 freeway. Very easy to get to, and right down the street from LegoLand.
Though the hotel was nice and easy to find, the reservation made was not available. Upon check-in, clerk asked if we would mind having a two bed room, because all of their one bed rooms were unavailable. Room was spacious and easy to find and navigate to from the parking lot.

Affordable near LegolandPosted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: Affordability. Proximity to Legoland.
Location: Legoland of course; but because it's right off the freeway, many other places near San Diego are within reach.
This HoJo was the cheapest we can find within reasonable distanc from Legoland, CA. Surprisingly clean and well kept; had a working fridge, free Wifi, and coffee maker in the room. The TV was the old tube variety but we didn't come here to watch TV. Overall, quite satisfied with the stay.

VacationPosted Oct 12, 2013
Pros: IT was minutes away from LEGOLAND and we could see the ocean from our room.
When we got in the room my son wanted to play his X Box game. The TV did not have the plugs he needed to play his game. I went to the desk and they put us in another room that had a TV that would work. It was also a upgrade from the room we had before. They went out of their way to make us fill welcome.

Grossed outPosted Sep 29, 2013
Pros: Towels, breakfast was good and included in the price. The staff was ok. Some smiled (the maids and the night guy), others did not (manager?).
Cons: For goodness sake, please change the carpets. It has this horrible, very dirty, smell, look and feel. Get some better furniture and bed spreads.
Location: Lego land.
I have always thought Howard Johnson was a middle of the road brand but I know think it is more like motel 8. The first impression as I opened the hotel door was simple disgust. The smell of the room was horrible. With 2 small kids, I felt nothing but ashamed i out them to sleep in such a dump. It must have been the old carpet but I know from experience that even old carpets smell good if they are kept clean and shampooed. It is obvious that no money is spent in keeping this a nice smelling hotel. The funny thing is that they had small things like the toilet paper folded, the towels nicely arranged and folded in a fancy way. It was totally surreal. $80 a night should get a Lot better than this.
