3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
The hotel staff was nice however the rooms are small and they have thin walls so you can hear everything in the next room. Be aware the area (Bay Area) in general has an outrageous problem with car theft so make sure you remove everything from your car on arrival. The car next to ours was broken into from the rear window and it appeared they left items in their car. It is very close to Bart and restaurants for walking distance and it felt safe walking around.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was immaculate. It had brand new furnishings and decor which were more homey than corporate. There were lots of light fixtures in the room and, therefore, light everywhere it was needed. The proprietor, Sam, was a pleasure to deal with.

Looking forward to the day when all hotels offer electric vehicle charging stations in their parking lots! Howard Johnson's needs to step up and support green tourism by installing a charging station at every hotel.
