"You get what you pay for"
The room we were given smelt of stale cigarette smoke, even though we booked a non smoking room. The bathroom smelt like a backed up sewer, really unpleasant! I called the front desk and was told that even though it was a non smoking room they could not control whether guests smoked in it or not. We found a tumbler on the small veranda filled with cigarette […] butts. The only solution offered for the unpleasant smell in the bathroom is that they would place some kind of ventilator in the room when we were out. The only positive was that the beds were pretty comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the ideal place"
Hotel room was mediocre. Rug looked dingy. Shower area was a bit dirty. Breakfast was nothing to write home about. The only thing offered was make your own waffles, toast and some Danishes. The coffee was watered down. Overall I wouldn't stay here again unless they made some upgrades.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"worst Howard Johnson ever"
Howard Johnson suppos.ed to be a good hotel it was a war so tell I've ever been in a motel 6 is a lot better. for what they want for the money its bad. worst hotel I've ever been in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
Hotel was adequate for what we needed. We weren't in our rooms much. one reason we picked this hotel was because it had a shuttle to Six Flags but on the morning we went they couldn't find a driver for the van so we had to drive ourselves and pay $25.00 parking fee at the park. Their ad also said newly renovated rooms, ours was not one of them unless […] it was done 15 years ago. Probably wouldn't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very small rooms not clean too old. Not worth the money!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty Hotel room"
When we got to the hotel, staff was very nice. Once in the room found trash on the floor and gross things in the bathroom, door would not work well. Horrible room will never stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay here again"
Hotel very run down. Found hair in my bed and on the towels. Carpet in room stained. I would not reccommend this hotel to a friend. Hotel was about 3 miles away from Six flags, but on the opposite side of the freeway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolutely discusting!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice and close.....great for the money....would go againGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel facilities are worn out, swimming pool water is dirt (not filtered), pathways and wall need paints, room interior looks old.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pay a little more and go elsewhere"
I would not stay here again. The blanket is like a foam or something, but not exactly what you could call a blanket, there were some sort of stains on sheets, the pillows are horrible. I felt like bugs were going to crawl out all over the place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was stated to be newly renovated. Not so. The room was covered in mold with lots of water damage. AC worked, and the sheets were white.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very poor hotel."
We left a day early and had to pay but the hotel was so bad we didn't want to stay. The pool was dirty and there were no lounge chairs. The breakfast was not good. And the location of the hotel was scary. We had a homeless person knock on our door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
Considering most, if not all California hotels are overrated on their star rating, this one was what I had expected. This is an old school motor lodge with the replete motor court. Unfortunately, while this makes it easy to get to your room, it also means filthy carpets from the asphalt. Word to the wise, flip flops. Other than that, the air conditioning […] units are dirty on the intake side, so who knows what you are breathing on your side. Not a good thing for those of you with asthma. The staff was friendly, helpful and complied with all requests we had. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel close to six flags"
Hotel was a nice place to stay. Close to six flags. Easy on & off hwyGenuine Expedia guest review
Didn't get a chance to go swimming. The pool was cloudy and I didn't feel safe taking a swim. Maintenance was not in, but other personell didn't know how to correct the problem-nor did they contact the pool cleaning company to take care of the problem. This is the annemity that made me decide to choose your hotel. Thank You- Just aplogizes doesn't make […] the stay nicer when you can't take a swim when you are looking forward to that.

"Don't stay here"
This hotel was horrible. Our first set of adjoining rooms were disgusting. One room smelled like sweet vomit and bleach, the beds were lumpy and it was filthy. The adjoining room smelled like freshly smoked marijuana and even after airing it out the smell would not go away. Called the front desk and complained, got another room. It was better then the […] first set. There are no elevators, the beds suck and breakfast is a joke. One waffle iron for the entire hotel. The buffet is never stocked and is very limited. Terrible experience!!!!! The breakfast during the week in served in the cafe and is no better and to top it all off they make you take your food back to the room. Very Disappointing!

the room was dirty and for a non smoking hotel sure smell like smoke. i had to go to the front desk to tell them i was leaving. they did get us a newer room. it was a touch better. the room overall looked better. i noticed it was dirty as well not as bad as the other. this room did not have a functioning air conditioner. they sent someone to look at […] it. looked like she was a house keeper. well guess what she did not fix it. i was hot so i looked at it myself. found it to be a wire that had broken off. i just got a screw driver and fixed it myself. worked great no issues after that. do not know if they did not have a maint person to fix broken items or not. while i had the cover the ac unit off i noticed the filter was filthy. i took it to the front desk. i showed the how filthy the filter was. i explained that this was unacceptable. they cleaned it off. i still took it back to the room once she had supposedly cleaned it to clean it in as there was still 20 percent of the dirt dust ect still on it. i wil not go back to this hotel again. very dissapointed. i had stayed in the best western when i had went 2 yrs before. this was a last minute trip and they were booked. i will plan ahead next time and stay there next time i go. if you are as unlucky as i was to have to stay here look in the corners dusty dirty under the ac inside the ac dirty. very dissapointing. only positive thing i will say is my kids did enjoy the pool Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Six Flags Fun Fun"
The room were clean stayed one night with my 2 kids. The rooms were basic, but they did have a microwave and refrigerator. Very nice to have when you have kids in the room. For what you pay $68.00 a night you cant expect to stay in the" Ritz Carlton"Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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

"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.

"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 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.

"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
