"Good for Price"
We wanted just a place to sleep overnight while we scuba dived in Monterey. Suited our needs, as we understood we were getting what we were paying for. No complaints. Motel was clean and although the breakfast was sparse, was grateful they even had breakfast. Breakfast is from 7am-10am.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Oh so so-so"
Staff was very friendly at check-in. The room was clean, but so many things were either broken or not working well. Hair dryer is very ancient and crackles when being used. One of the ceiling lights constantly flickered, even though it was turned off. Chairs were not useable since they were very wobbly. The bathroom door would not closed unless you […] used a lot of force; and then it would closed very loudly. Loved it being close to shopping needs and for the purpose of our stay. Loved there was a refrigerator and microwave...especially since the breakfast offered is very minimal. You can tell they are trying to pinch pennies. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lummpy stay inn."
First off this was no suite like the add said it would be. And second off we noticed that thier was a brothel down the way from us and we paid alot of money to stay here. The food was way to sweet .The beds in the room were very lummpy the rooms where very dirty and I would never stay here again .Genuine Expedia guest review
"I will stay here again."
This motel is easily accessible to the Highway 1, is clean, comfortable and affordable. The staff was extremely courteous, even to pointing out where breakfast is served. They even had a "make-your-own" waffle setup that I've never seen anywhere else. The breakfast food was fresh, the orange juice was cold and they had TEA! And it had working WiFi and […] the staff gave me the code without my having to ask. I will stay here again when I visit Monterey because of the affordability, cleanliness, comfort and service.

"Smelly and no one cares to help you"
We arrived late. We went to bed and discovered that the sheets were all wet! We noticed that the under bed (area between the box spring and the mattes was all wet? Please don't even tell me how that came about???? But no they could not help us because there was no housekeeping staff at night. So too bad you sleep with a wet bed. Then there was hair […] in the bathtub up all over the sides? GROSS!! I think I will never trust expedia again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location is good. Rooms are a little small, but a nice size bathroom. My kids enjoy making their own waffles for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very disappointing, noisy and not very clean"
We got the corner unit that was on the major cross section, it was very noisy. The spa that was in front of our room was empty and filthy, the location was of the hotel was not very nice. I would not recommend the hotel, we stayed here because it was a short notice stay, most hotels were booked or priced too much due to local events, should of just […] paid the higher price for a nice hotel, oh we'll lesson learned.

I was in town for the jazz festival- good locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"would stay again"
The beds were a bit hard and the pillows too stuffed for our comfort. The breakfast was a good variety. Location is near a Costco (no gas station).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beach very close."
Can't beat the price. Groceries stores and restraunts every where.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok place to stay"
I had the room very close to the intersection. Very noisy at times but it is do-able compared to having noisy neighbors. Overall, the stay was nice and would enjoyed more if I had more channels available to watch on TV. WiFi was good and easily available for customers when needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was crowded. Phone was ot of order, tv was not working right.Beds were comfortable. Place was clean. breakfast area was small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel in Monterey"
A really good find during our recent trip to California. Slightly off the main coastal strip but the hotel was excellent, well maintain and great staff. If this is an example of a Howard Johnson hotel I'll definitely be looking them up in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was unsatisfied with this hotel. When we checked in the front desk seemed to be busy with other things, wasn't friendly at all. Our room was disgusting, smelled like smoke, lamps were broken, bathroom was dirty. I definitely would not stay there again, I didn't feel clean after showering in that bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In a bad neighborhood"
When I was driving up to this hotel, I saw some people being arrested. It seemed like this hotel was in a bad neighborhood. It was really clean, though, and the staff was friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel as such is a usual Motel (though no pool) - but the area around the Hotel is not nice - I would not propose to have a walk around...Genuine Expedia guest review
We hated it!!! Uncomfortable, thin walls, dirty (just old but needs maintenance)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overpriced for nothing!"
Our room was dirty, including used soap and shampoo in the shower. Nasty. The people in the room next to us NEVER slept the whole night. TV blaring, talking, laughing. It was awful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expensive for what you get"
Not terrible, but won't stay again. Rooms outdated and slightly smell-but were clean for the most part.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not as bad as I thought..."
This is an older motel with no frills (no pool, jacuzzi void of water at time we stayed), walls thin so you could hear the neighbors at night (mostly their kids), and could hear the water pipes (ie, showers running). However, it was clean and modest with everything in working order from locking doors to clear tv channels. Nothing fancy and in older […] area of Seaside near shops/auto sales, but was safe and decent for us; mostly families with kids stayed here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"worst motel in this area"
The room was very dirty old and in need of repairs. The walls are paper thin. The entry doors made so much noise we were awakened repeatedly through the nigbt by neigh ors going in and out. We will never go back the this motelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
everything is there, but the room (210, big room) is not too comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth it."
Ok location, ok room, decent customer service. Strangely laid out room, very dirty. Clump of hair stuck to the shower wall, musty smell throughout, strange brown liquid on and around toilet. Carpet was pretty gross. We made sure we had socks on at all times. With taxes, etc., we paid $140+. Definitely not worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friends in Monterey"
Was in Monterey with friends. This is the second time I have stayed at Howard Johnsons. Very convenient to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Go else where. Expensive and terrible"
The wall is very thin and the bed shakes every time next door closes the door. We can hear next door conversation very clearly. The room smells (musky). The room is very dark even with all lights turned on.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was nice BUT lock on front door was broken, bedspread had burn hole in it, bathroom door knob wobbly like its one turn from falling off. When I went to the attendant to ask to change rooms he couldn't understand why. He actually went back and forth with me... I would NEVER recommend or stay in this place EVER!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Evaluation of Howard Johnsons"
The hotel has an excellent location for the work I was involved in. The room had an updated TV. The cleanliness of the bathroom was excellent. The quality of the room was slightly below average. Some of the furniture was quite old and dirty. For the price, the room was OK. I would recommend they update the furniture, especially the chair by the desk. […] They did have a light breakfast for guests. This was most appreciated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This place needs major renovation"
The carpet was disgusting, several tiles in the bathroom were cracked. The vanity in the bathroom looks like it was made by a high school student with particle board that was falling apart. If I was Howard Johnson, the only thing I would keep is the guy at the front desk. I would blow up the rest and start over. It was cheap, and the five of us were […] OK for the amount of time we stayed in the room. Unless you need the space, spend the extra $40 a night and stay at better place.

"Convenient to the sights we wanted to see"
It was okay, room was a little dingy. Should have completed the survey the morning we checked out. Checking in and out almost daily that I forget what room was where. Rate of room was reasonable which helps with our budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Review closely before booking"
The musty odor, completely outdated decor, and no circulation of air left an immediate bad first impression that did not improve throughout the stay. This hotel needs basic maintenance. The tiles on the floor were loose in a few places, but the ones right outside the bathtub were the worst: as you're stepping out of the shower, the loose tiles nearly […] sent you to the floor! This hotel has no pool, a hot tub that was not working, and a continental breakfast space that was so tiny, guests were sitting right outside the restroom door, about two feet from the toilet. The extra "suite" included two queen beds in a small, dark ugly space with no television. Very uncomfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
OkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have never stayed in a Howard Johnson before. This one reminded me of a Motel 6, but a little nicer. The outside was updated and clean. The inside of the rooms had a feel of an older hotel. Strangely, the heat was on in the room... who does that at the end of June? The bed was comfortable. By opening the windows in the front and in the bathroom a […] nice breeze was created. The AC and bathrooms could use updating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price, thin walls."
The room was perfect for our needs and price. But at two am the snoring neighbors were ridiculous. We alternated the heater and a/c for the fan noise. We were not interested on an early wake up but everyone else in the place was up and ready for the free food. Overall clean enough and perfect for our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Its 2013, time to upgrade."
The rooms seem alittle out dated. The TV was still those old school tvs. Limited to 10 chanels.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"It was accessible to shops and food."
Easy to find, close to shops and eateries. Highway access. Everything was fine.Genuine Expedia guest review

"20th aniversary trip to Monterey CA"
I was disappointed in the hotel. We had stayed there in there in the past and it was great. We had discovered that there was new owners that did not care about the cleanliness of the hotel. The housekeepers did not know how to make a bed. The hot tub was a health hazard. The water was black. The toilets were gross. The last day I was there my bath towel […] smelled so bad of cigarettes that I was unable to use it. The fridge was so loud it would wake us up at night. Never again will I stay there.

It was loud ppl were yelling running around the top floor at 5 a.m. oh my god it was horrible.. the room was very clean no complaints thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Just a place to sleep, but it was a clean room with a decent shower. Minimal other ammenaties.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"decent value for money"
for the price everything was ok, except this is Monterey Peninsular and it gets cool at night and there was only a sheet and a flimsy cover on the bed, no blankets, and like most hotels the heater/air conditioner was too noisy to run at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sea Otte Classic"
Small old room with old uncomfortable mattresses. Heater was loud and only blew cold air. Refrigerator sounded as if it were powered by a jet engine. Overall tough to sleep. Unfriendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleepless in Seaside"
Beds were very squeaky and awful. Guest noise level was unacceptable. Everything had a 20 year old tired appearance. Absolutely, positively will not go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
It is what it is. A stop gap solution between attractions. Got the suite and it was perfect for what we needed. Nothing fancy but I wasn't paying a ton. You got what you paid for which is a good thing for once. Breakfast had the usual muffin an pastries with cereal and self serve waffles.Genuine Expedia guest review
The towels and sheets were stained and questionable; there was blood on one. When we asked for more towels according the amount of people we booked the room for, we were questioned as to why. The beds were uncomfortable. Noise level at night was fine. Hotel management was ok, not overly friendly. The breakfast was ok. The price doesn't really match […] the quality. Although it's a cheaper price the quality of the room is way cheaper. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly. The beds weren't the best....need to put better effort to cleaning the rooms also the rooms had a funny odor....we had got two rooms and both had the same problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good for the money"
It wasn't too expensive so I can't complain too much. I did have to move to 3 different rooms before we found the fridge that was supposed to be in every room. And then the last day the portrait on top of the bed fell down and hit my boyfriend which wasn't good. But other than that, you get what you paid for. The breakfast isn't bad. Id go back aga […] in.
