Dirty room, stains on wall, people going through garbage bins swimming pool dirtyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would not recommend hotel"
The hotel is old and smelly. When we got to our room, the first thing we see is a dirty pamper on the AC unit. The couch was stained and soiled, the bed linen not crisp and clean. We were very hesitant to or lay down anywhere. We laid on our personal towels that we brought along. Overhaul is what this hotel needs.Genuine Expedia guest review
We got to the hotel and there was a roach on the bed. Not a quality hotel! Beds were comfortable! That's it. Will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Qualcomm Stadium, Old Town PB & OB"
Over all was convenient for the activities in the area that we planed in San Diego. Rather enjoyed the privacy while in the room. Did not like having to go to the front desk for extra towels and pillows. The continental breakfast was unorganized, not enough food for guests on hand and coffee was horrible. Your better off going to Denny's or a local […] diner near by for breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I only spent one night there, checked in late and checked out early. But from what I see, the staff are nice, the rooms are big and clean, the location is good. Not a luxurious choice but worthy of the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for - beg bugs"
I got this hotel for cheap...just wanted a place close to downtown, safe and somewhere to sleep. Showed up and immediately saw how disgusting it was. Our first room (318) had lights out and the swing lock was broken so we got another room (315). The room was nice and clean so we figured we'd stay there. The next morning I found a bed bug crawling in […] my bed! Looked online and found that Room 315 had that problem with others in the past! Four itchy bug bites showed up two days later. Wish I did more research. I demanded a refund through Expedia, which they granted and booked a different hotel downtown. The hotel staff was fine but this hotel was very disgusting and I would never recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We would never let our children stay here. What a mess and the pictures were not accurate at all!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NI'll never stay there again!"
The only positive thing I can say was the the person at the front desk was delightful. The condition of the hotel was disgusting at ANY price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel surroundings not good, room smelled, sheets were cheap and had two holes, air condition did not work very well, would not recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for one night on a budget"
I thought Howard Johnsons were supposed to be nicer than this, no? The room had dirty marks on the walls, as if someone never bothered to do a proper clean when the marks first occurred. The mattress is below average, as are the sheets. Why is breakfast only until 9am? Should be at least until 10. And I only discovered this by coming downstairs at 9:30, […] the person checking me in the night before sure didn't mention breakfast at all. Let's talk about the person who checked me in: one of the most boring, unfriendly guys ever. Obviously hates his job. Used as few words as possible, didn't even act like he cared if I enjoyed my stay or if I had any questions. His tie was badly tied. When he stepped out from behind the desk later I noticed that his shirt was untucked, which wouldn't be too big a deal if he weren't wearing a HOJO tie and vest. It just looked pathetic, especially with his sneakers (!) We got to the room and the back of the remote was missing, just one battery of the two. Eventually we found the other battery on the floor. Also, the volume on the remote didn't work. The bathroom had marks all over. The bedside lamps only turned on if you plugged them in, their switch didn't work so you had to unplug them when done. It was cool to have a fridge and microwave, but the fridge wasn't cold enough and the microwave was unplugged and hard to reach the socket to plug back in. I guess I would've expected this at Motel 8, but HoJo? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Howard Johnson Comfortable Accommodations"
Staying overnight in town on business. Facilities were clean, staff was friendly. Water pressure was good, Air conditioner was on and room was good temperature. Breakfast was a little weak, no fresh fruit, bread was not put out, but was eventually stocked about 20 minutes later. Good price, clean accommodations, off street parking, would stay there […] again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Welcome to the roach motel"
When I arrived at the motel it was approximately 45 minutes prior to their check-in time of 2:00. The clerk at the front desk who was apparently having a very bad day, as he appeared to have an angry look on his face said in an unpleasantly voice, check-in is not until 2:00. So I left and returned approximately 2 hours later and was given a room on […] the 4th floor (highest floor) with the elevator on the other side of the building from my room. The next morning while sitting in the room trying to relax in spite of the noise from passing cars on the freeway adjacent to the motel, I noticed a giant roach crawling up the side of the cabinet where the TV was placed. I did myself and the motel a favor and squashed it with my shoe. (didn't want it to end up in my clothes bag) When I called the front desk and told the clerk, who was fortunately a different one from the check-in clerk he offered to move me to another room. Prior to accepting his offer I asked if the motel had a problem with roaches and he hesitantly said no, but where there is one - there are many, especially as big as that one was.

"The hotel had a clean bed and bathroom. I'm good."
First, my reservation was for a non-smoking room. I was put in a room that smelled like it was smoked in last weekend. I was promptly moved upon request. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The second night, I had an upstairs neighbor who was very heavy-footed or a large child, charging around and stomping until after 10:30pm. I contacted […] the front desk 3 times asking for assistance to quiet the perpetrator above. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating in making contact with the upstairs neighbor and requested their quiet. It didn't work for about an hour, but they tried! The room I was in was right next to the vending machines and office, which made for extra noise, but the air conditioner helped drone out some of it. The carpet was badly in need of cleaning! The location worked for me and the price was right. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel was dirty and stench"
The hotel was very dirty. The moment we step on the carper, our feet were so dark. This shows the carpet was dingy. No wonder it stench in the hotel. It looked like they never clean the carpet and there were dark spots on the ceiling in the bath room. It could be molds. My family and I will never go back to that hotel ever again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Cheap, still not worth second stay"
Front desk staff was very rude. Breakfast time, though specified 5-9, all was out by 8 and they refused to replenish basic stuff like butter. Totally untrained staff, 2% and 4% milk were switched in the dispenser. Broken bathroom door (no screws in hinges). Stuffy smelling rooms - not sure when used last time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good ,Clean room Tv worked, Got what I paid for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The first room was on the 4th floor and the elevator was not working. We walk in the room to find a significant flow of water leaking through the bathroom ceiling and standing water on floor. Given another room on other side of building on third floor. So three flights down and two flights up with all of our luggage. Second room still being readied […] by the maid. Having an appointment to get to, I went to front desk explaining the urgency to shower. He gave us a smoking room to use the shower. The non-smoking room was ready after showers so we able to move our luggage before we left for appointment. The door jamb had been repaired but could see light through cracks and door didn't feel secure when locked. Have stayed at this place a few times over the years but never again. It has fallen into a terrible state. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, on Hotel circle"
Good management, of a 5 day stay, on the second day we had a overflowing sink "at night" service came immediately, and the next morning they provided a move to another room.. NO PROBLEMGenuine Expedia guest review
Parking lot torn up, elevator out of service, construction being done next door, headboard mounted crooked on wall, old mattress with poking springs, back killing me, left early to drive 2 and a half hours home at midnight was worth it being in my own bed. Will never book there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One hotel in serious need of remodeling."
The beds are way too old and coming apart at the bottom seams plus needful new mattresses. The baseboards are pulling away from the wall and the carpets need replacement as they are old and outdated big time. Repair work and labor done has been very sloppy. The main door to the rooms, are old and warped. There is about 3/4 inch gap between the outside […] door and door frame. Lights are not replaced. We called twice to have bed lamp and cieling lamp bulbs replaced but was never done in the week we spent there. The walls in the bathroom look like spots of bold or mildew.

"close enough to airport for a lay over"
Teh room was equipped with all that you need, and served its purpose for a lay over, late night entry t morning exit. There were people outside our room all night talking... It was just not pleasant.

"Bad hotel to stay At"
The elevator was broken the entire time. Rooms were dirty and very smallGenuine Expedia guest review
I was very disappointed with this hotel, bed sheets were stained furniture was dirty, carpet was stained and dirty. The overall condition of the room was pretty bad. I was on the fourth floor which was a little scary. If your staying in San Diego you really need to read the hotel reviews because there are a lot of bad hotelsGenuine Expedia guest review

"On a Budget, Sometimes old school is the way to go"
It might not be the newest or fanciest hotel on the block but it was good for what I needed it for. The room was clean, the staff was friendly. It was located near a shuttle that I needed to get to the convention center. The beds were comfy. I liked the in room fridge and microwave. The pool and jacuzzi are in an odd location but I used it all the same. […] A nice soak after a long day at the convention center. Food places in walking distance. Loved the waffle place. I had a car and old town and a couple of shopping centers are near by and easy to get to. It is old and could use some updating. The internet didn't work the whole time I was there. I think there was an elevator but it was located on the other side. I was on level 3 and had to walk up and down the stairs all the time. It was bothersome after a long day and taking up the luggage. If you are on a budget this is the way to go. I would go back again and probably will. I recommend whole heartedly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
