Good location

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Price and location
Location: The hotel is located close to the highway and beach.
You cannot beat the price and location of this hotel. Some things are dated, but the rooms are clean and have everything you need.

Descent hotel

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Best part was the comfortable king sized bed and worst part was the sand paper towels. Would make a huge difference if the towels were upgraded!

Close to soceer fields

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: More counter space and a better quality continenal breakfast!! Water damage and mildew in shower should be repaired!!!
Location: Close to all beach areas and many resturants to pick from!!!
Nice people at check in, room ok, was given a handicap room with lots of wasted space, no bathtub and the shower got the whole bathroom floor all wet, had to use all towels to sop up the water. The counter in the bathroom had no space to put anything, just not a very comfortable room!! Being right off the freeway was surprised the room was very quiet!! Overall okay but would probably stay in a little better quality hotel next time, would give it a 2 star!!!!

Nice location but nit clean

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Cons: I do not think they guys clean the rugs.
we needed a night stay close to San Diego. For us, this location was perfect, as it is just on the highway. We were disappointed as the cleanliness was not close to the name of Howard Johnson. We like the breakfast, but the front desk staff did not show any welcome gesture on their faces.

close to 5 freeway and beach

Ok for a short stay. don't expect much from the pool, not a resort type hotel. Included breakfast was sufficient although room were served is small and easily gets crowded.

Too pricy

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Rooms were quiet, and hotel was not too far from restaurants, beaches and parks, that was the only plus.
Cons: Larger Swimming pool, better breakfast offer (scrambled eggs, sausages, French bread, fresher pastries...)
Location: Location is ok, but you have to drive to nice restaurants
Rooms are overpriced. I paid $245 a room that smelled bad (obviously, previous occupants smoked in this non smoking room), had no charm (orange floral bed covers from the seventies), cheap towels, old screen tv with a tiny screen, complementary breakfast was not great and the room had a strong chemical smell to it, the pool was tiny...Rooms were quiet, and hotel was not too far from restaurants, beaches and parks, that was the only plus.

Good

May want to be a little more careful and selective with your clientele. Had the police over twice in one day to inquire about customers acting really Bad. It's a bother when all you are looking for is a hotel you can rest at and be in peace. Thank you.

Loud Fridge and Air conditioning

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: The location and how quiet it was at night.
Cons: The beds, refrigerators, air conditioning and plumming should be improved.
Location: I have family nearby and visit a couple times a year. Legoland is also very nearby.
This hotel would be great if they would just update at bit. The beds could be better, the fridge had to be unplugged because of the loud noises it made, and the air conditioning was also extrememly loud. Also, the shower fluctuated from hot to cold and hot again. Other than that, the location was very convenient, the staff was very nice, the hotel was actually very quiet at night. So, I would recommend it based on those things.
