"Would have liked a better location for our stay"
Upon our arrival to the hotel, it did not have a nice surrounding. Once we drove into the actual hotel parking lot, it seemed to be a bit better than the outside surrounding area. The hotel room was okay. It was large enough to accomodate 2 adults & 2 kids. We asked to be located near the pool, but the slamming of the pool gate at all hours was not […] nice. We were woke up at all hours with the pool gate slamming. Hotel amenities were fine. The room was clean. The hotel rate fit the quality of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Place is a little old school but it did give us a roof and beds for the weekend while at six flags. Breakfast was very minimal. Was not able to shower due to the shower being dirty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dog Friendly; great for the fairground dog shows!"
We have stayed at this 2-story motel for several years as it is very conveniently located near the County Fairgrounds where the Woofstock Dog Show is held. We stay for other dog shows about 12 days/year--also popular for visitors to Six Flags/Marine World. The dog owners and parents have been very responsible and make it a pleasant place to enjoy, especially […] the pool area. The rooms are average size, and allow a rollaway bed, if needed. There is a microwave and nice sized refrigerator, coffee pot and tv. Free breakfast, plus 20% coupon to an adjacent cafe for breakfast/lunch. Large pool area. Most convenient is the grocery store in the shared parking lot next door! Jack in the Box and Caffino (coffee kiosk) is across the street. Valero gas station next door offers best gasoline prices around. The property is about 30 years old, so the place in general is not new, or a destination hotel, yet it is just fine for a four day stay. The rooms are not "well appointed" but they are adequate. The beds are firm (ok for my husband, but not so great for me), which I would recommend they improve upon with memory foam mattresses available nowadays. The rooms have been maintained, and because of the property's age needs more maintenance and remodeling. For the price, and all other considerations, I will continue to book the dates we will be in Vallejo and would recommend it given the considerations that I have mentioned. p.s. 20% discount is now being offered for 3+ nights stay.

The sink and shower window ledge were dirty (soap scum and hair-disgusting!). The pool area looked dingy and the water wasn't heated so too cold during our stay (the temps were in the upper 60's) and no hot tub, which was a big disappointment. The breakfast was a joke and confusing as to location. The wireless Internet connection was slow and not password […] protected. The maid consistently left us too few fresh towels and failed to supply coffee for the ever so slow in-room coffeemaker. However, the beds were comfortable and the A/ C worked. The hotel was adequate for our needs but definitely could use some improvements. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I just stayed @ the howard johnson for a 2 night stay! Great location for shopping or going to six flags...but the shuttle for six flags wasnt free!!!! & u have to request a time for drop off & pick up, which I thought was stupid, so that was the only downfall! I would stay again :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friends and I spent the night in this hotel after we left six flags. I don't know why people rate this really low but I thought the hotel was nice. When we went into our rooms, it didn't smell like cigarettes. It was very clean, it had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and oh! It even had a couch in there. When we went to go get pizza, there was […] a lot of activity going on, I would suggest getting it delivered to the hotel. The bathroom is nicely organized, though while I was showering, I noticed the ceiling was leaking water and they should have a little barrier for the water because it was slipping through the floor into the bathroom. We had to use towels to prevent that. But all and all it was a great stay. I didn't mind the little things. I recommend those who just want to stay one night and want to go somewhere cheap. It is like no more then 10 mins away from Six flags. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Unclean and loud room"
We stayed here for two nights and couldn't get out sooner - luckily we only had to be there to sleep as we were commuting to and from Napa each day. It was clear that the bathroom hadn't been cleaned well (there was hair on the floor and a layer of dust on top of the toilet). The room smelled weird and it was very loud at night as it was right next […] to an empty parking lot where people seemed to go and hang out and mess around with their cars. I wouldn't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"provide easy access to features we were interested"
My stay this time was mared by a series of small, but problematic issues.We have stayed in the establishment several times over the past few years,and usually have been quite satified with our stay,however this time was quite different. We were over chargered,thought after a phone call it was cleared up,but needless to say it never should have happened,It […] showed a lack of communication between the shifts,in the staff. Our room was a smoking one which I specifically asked for non-smoking,because of 2 children with asthma,when asked to correc,ws informed there were n more open. The microwave coud not be used unless mover to the counter f the sink, because the cord was to short,this as yoy know is both a fire,and a shck hazard.Whikethe rooms were tidy,they were not really clean.Also the inablity to be able to take a sit-down bath was dissappointing. The breakfast needs inprovement, The price was good, but I"m not sure we will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Works for us"
It was not a first time stay. It is good for the price. Good coffee and breakfast in the morning but only Sat. and Sun. Where was my coffee on Monday? Room was clean. Only the carpet was very dirty, so you need flip-flops. Will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very dissappointed this time. We have stayed in ths noisey and we couldn"t use the micowave without moving it to the bathroom sink, because the cord was too short. This presented a danger so we didn"t use it at all. The ice machine was always empty,and the pool unkept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Howard Johnson in Vallejo"
This place is just fine for anyone wanting to save money. We slept pretty good, no outside noise the other guests were considerate of each other. Very relaxing and quiet. the room was clean and when we asked for more towels they brought them right away. The location was perfect for us. And they have breakfast on site.

I stayed at this hotel on my honeymoon a few years ago, and again for our family vacation. The beds are extremely comfortable! The bathrooms are nice and large. I appreciated the microwave and fridge. Overall, a great hotel! Friendly staff is also appreciated! The only thing I would improve would be the breakfast offered. Not much selection.

"Terrible Customer Service"
I was very let down on the customer service. I called the day before arriving to confirm my hotel rooms and was hung up on three times! The third time I was told by the front desk man, "he had customes to serve and could not talk to me right now". I replied with, "wait I am a customer too ..." and then was hung up on. The fourth time the front desk […] pick up the phone and set the receiver down on the counter to ignore my question. I was very disappointed and will not stay here again. The second night the hotel had a party downstairs that went to well past 11:00pm. I was on the 3rd floor and could hear the base booming all night. Good luck - I won't stay here again.

Response by Howard Johnson Inn and Suites Vallejo/Near Discovery Kingdom I apologize for the poor costumer service you have received. Our staff is trained to attend to guests chronologically. It is unfortunate that we have to put a guest on hold at times due to the fact that we want to finish attending to the guest we are currently in contact with so that they do not feel neglected. We try our best to multitask but it is sometimes to hard and I apologize for that. I also apologize about the noise, however, we do not have a third floor in our hotel.

"Close to Six Flags"
The room was clean and neat but both queen beds were old and sagged in the middle making both people roll to the center. Very uncomfortable!! The front desk called within the hour of our arrival to make sure our room was ok and we asked for another set of towels which we picked up right away. We had not laid down on the beds yet to know how bad they […] were. Having a small fridge and micowave was nice but the con. breakfast was is the diner next door and felt uncomfortable going in to select items and eat while others were being served hot meals., may not bother others but did us and choices were extremely limited. There is a Denny's near by that we enjoyed a nice breakfast at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dissapointed that I had to pay Extra"
Booked 2 rooms here through Expedia with 2 queen beds each for 3 nights & when I got there I was given the 2 rooms with 1 queen bed instead of 2. I don’t know who’s to blame for on this but I was so in a hurry & very tired to even deal with arguing with the front desk lady because she was charging me more for extra queen bed in each room even after […] my confirmation said 2 queen beds requested for each room! Anyways, after paying I had to wait almost half hr for her to find a room for me with 2 queen beds. After finally getting a room as we entered there was a weird ugly smell. Smelled like smoke when it was a non-smoking room. After trying out the bathroom, it didn’t flush right. It was really cold and when I turned on the heater, it made this terrible noise, it sounded like it was going to blow in any minute & took forever to turn on & start heating! Then the next day after going out & coming back to the room, the key to the hotel was deactivated & I had to go back to the front office to have them activate it again. This happened every day! That was a waste of time going back and forth to have the key activated every single day especially when it was freezing outside! On the other hand, breakfast was ok..shower was good..I liked that they had microwave and a small fridge in the room. It's close to 6 flags, which was the main reason why we stayed there. By the way, wi-fi was way too slow. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would Stay Here Again!"
Family of five, 2 adults & 3 kids. Out in Vallejo for a a wedding in Napa (30 mins away). First impression room looked just like what I saw in the photographs. Sheets were clean & nicely tucked in. Pillows were fluffy but uncomfortable (bring own). 3 small complimentary toiletries. A small blow dryer (worked excellent), small fridge, microwave. T.V. […] (local channels only), heater/AC located in the room. Continental breakfast offered from 6am-9am. A little early for some but it worked for us since we had to be up early any way. Hotel provided toast, cereal (Cheerios), banana, & the best part which my children enjoyed was the waffle iron maker. O.J; water, & coffee were offered. Nothing too fancy but it definitely does the job. Free WiFi is a super plus. CONS I heard upstairs footsteps at 3am. Our room was on the 1st flr and some hotel stayers decided to stop in front of our window and talk. That was annoying and would recommend the hotel at least add signs. There aren't very many outlets conveniently located around the room. Iron was mediocre, it kept turning off every 15 mins which took me forever to finish ironing slacks and button ups for my children and husband. OVERALL RATING- Our 2 night hotel stay was reasonably priced, close to the freeway, IT WAS CLEAN, WE FELT SAFE, market conveniently located. Sufficient for our needs. I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AT THE HOWARD JOHNSON AGAIN. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

""Don't stay at this hotel!""
I would not return to this hotel. An hour after we checked in, a hotel staff actually opened our door without knocking while my partner and I were making out on the bed. When she saw us in the room, instead of apologizing, she asked, "Do you have a key?" My partner told her yes and she left without saying anything. What the heck is that?? That was just […] unacceptable. Not to mention that no one ever gave us information on check out time and where and when the complimentary breakfast is available at. And no one bothered to tell the drunk kids to stop screaming and yelling in the hallway at night - they continued to scream and yell from 12am to 2am. This is one of the worst hotel stay experiences I ever had. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"It was okay."
For the price I guess it was okay. I was a little disappointed that the picture on the old TV was fuzzy, and with the fact that we weren't able to order movies...but the bed was wonderful and the bathroom was nicely renovated. With all the space in there, my suggestion to the owners would be to just go ahead and throw a 2 person jacuzzi tub in there. […] Add a flat screen, new carpet, and a fluffy comforter and you'd have a 5 star suite. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ignore warnings, cute little hotel for budgets!!"
My overall experience was good despite all the negative comments about it!! I booked the hotel for me and my boyfriend on a 2 day trip. Whe booking hotels before getting scared at comments and avoiding them for your life you gotta remember to review the city! This hotel is in vallejo, not a very publicizied city! Not alot of people stay in vallejo […] so they may not exactly have funds for keeping up to date! Don't worry everything is in place as it should be! I found it secure enough, If you're paranoid enough about security than you might wanna save your change and pay over a hundred dollars and flee 45 mins to Napa! Back to the actual hotel itself, I booked a little room with a king sized bed, still had all the essentials. The bathroom had a tub shower, so you can certainly bring you're bath salts and candles for a quiet night in! There is the pool that was clean, unfortunatley we forgot our swimsuits so we didn't go in, but it was non the less clean during my stay there!! Hotel was also only about a mile or two from major stores like Ross, Best Buy, Target, Rasputins, Pier 1 Imports, Black Bear, Panda Express, McDonalds, a movie theater, etc. It's not far from 6 flags either. Basically, you can a) book a room cause ya know you want to and save some cash or, b) Don't book it and pay a little extra for a room that would probably be about the same! I would Definitaly go back again!! Good Luck and happy Travels!! (^-~) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I have two small children full of energy. I don't understand why they would put us on the top floor with people under us. We have been in the car for hours and my kids need to wind down.
