"have good time"
was good the bed was comfortable and the room was very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The place was quiet so we had a good night sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't care for the location but Salinas in general is a tough town. I was hassled by drunk guests the first night as I arrived after 10pm following a music rehearsal. Manager on duty was kind and saw what happened but didn't indicate what he would/could do about the problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
this was a fine 2star hotel.. not anymore... but a very nice 2 star.. not 2 1/2 or 3.. just a nice two star for one or two night staysGenuine Expedia guest review
"I will say there again"
Hotel.com is great first time user . Howard Johnson was real nice I will stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"in a quiet area with friendly staff"
it was clean and had friendly staff, the room was comfortable and spacious, we stayed 2 nights with our little ones. They clean the room everyday and is located in a quiet area. I like the breakfeast nothing unusual waffles cereal, milk, juice, coffe, beagels, toast, bananas, apples. We had a pleasant stay would book again. Reasonable rates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Neil at the front desk is awesome!!!! This was my second time here and Ill be going back soonGenuine Expedia guest review
"staying at this hotel is a must :)"
it is a place where i would stay again and again , everyone was very nice and it was more then i expected from the price....by a good time it was very quite ,not kids jumping on top stay ...and the breakfast was everything they say ...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very satisfied with the quality of the hotel at the price. We were attending an event in Monterey and did not want to pay Monterey prices. The drive was easy and the hotel was nice. Great bed too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay"
It was fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expedia's failed rating system"
Hotel had one stairwell and 1 elevator for the whole building. Had limited difficult to use parking even for experienced drivers. One person working entire customer counter. Didn't answer phone for 4 hours when trying to confirm reservation. Had several people of questionable legality walking on the street. Fights in the parking lot next door. The hotel […] is so close to the road even though I had a room on the backside I heard every car drive by. Beds aren't the size requested but just twin mattresses pushed together to make your size. Room layout was not very comfortable couldn't get to bathroom if someone was at the desk. The shower, toilet, sink, microwave, and fridge were all within 5 feet of each other. Will never stay here again Expedia should have rated this no more the 1 star it was horrible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not that bad."
After reading remarks about how bad the neighborhood is I was beginning to second guess my selection but glad I didn't. We were there for one night and it was just fine; no street walkers, no homeless just an occasional car driving up and down. Yes the windows are not the best so the noise from the Highway (yes, hwy 68 is right off the sidewalk) was […] not noticeable with the tv on and window closed. We were 2 doors down from the highway. Breakfast room was TINY so be ready for a crowd. Room could have been cleaned better; carpet, decor, linens looked fresh and new. Stayed on 3rd floor on east side.

"Room small for the BIG bed!"
Room was very small for two people to move around. Bed was very comfortable. TV very small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I love how quiet it was after being out all day and not having to worry about noise in the end felt good...Ill stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great budget choice for a family"
We just spent our vacation travelling and stayed in many hotels of comparable price and quality in the Bay Area. This was by far the nicest, cleanest hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not as advertisec"
Cable service didn't work in my room and the breakfast wasn't a full breakfast as advertised.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The elevator wasn't working and we had to go down 3 flights of stairs with all our luggage:(Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean & comfortable"
Clean, comfortable at a great price. Good breakfast nice quiet part of town.Genuine Expedia guest review
Typical old motel not hotel. Broken fixtures all around with dirty stained sheets.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good overall; will come back. Need more parking spaces.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was decent, clean and fairly comfortable. However, parking was full both nights we stayed there and had to park across the street, which was pretty scary. I still can't explain why I paid more for this hotel than for a beach-side, 3.5 star hotel in Monterey! Who knew that Salinas was this expensive!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very comfortable. I just did not like that check in time was 3:00. When I initailly called Hotel.com. I was told it was 12:00 noon check in time. Because of this we were un able to attend a very special event that took place at 1:00. If check in time would have been 12. It was have been great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"referred to by locals as the "hooker hotel""
we were so dissatisfied that we left and stayed the night elsewhere. after hours on the phone, we didn't even get our money back. horrendous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not good for family"
We stayed here at this hotel with 2 small children and within only a few minutes my crawler had dark spot on hands and knees from the carpet floor which had clearly not been cleaned in a long time. The location of the hotel was on a busy street in a bad neighborhood, and the complimentary breakfast was really bad. I would not recommend this hotel to […] a family at all.

Okay...not the worst I've stayed at. They were nice at the front desk, they got me my room..nothing fancy. The bed was comfy..shower was just ok. I enjoyed my stay while I was there. they could upgrade the rooms a bit more, but I didn't even stay in the room long enough to care.Genuine Expedia guest review
The neighborhood was questionable but the hotel seemed to border decent areas and shady ones. The room was clean and quiet and the front desk attendant was also professionally dressed and friendly. Overall I would stay there again any time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Near Old Town Location Clean & Comfortable"
This hotel is within walking distance to a quaint old town area. There are many good restaurants. The hotel is manager is very accommodating. I arrived early and he checked me in with no questions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great updated hotel"
We were not expecting such an updated hotel when we booked! Very roomy and very clean...would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"it was easy to find"
after a few minutes the tv started to make a noise, so we turned it offGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice, convenient for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, but not very good"
I realize that rooms here are cheaper than most hotels in the Monterey area, but the room was nothing to write home about either. The hotel and the furniture are quite old, the A/C in the room had no thermostat (just an on/off for hot/cold), the TV was ancient and very round, the bathroom area was poorly laid out and space was tight, etc. On the plus […] side, the room had a mini-fridge and microwave, and the included breakfast and Internet were nice. The staff were also helpful. Just know that if you stay here, you're getting what you pay for (which is not much). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great alternative to staying in Carmel or Monterey"
My wife and I did a last minute weekend trip to Carmel and Monterey. Unfortunately, all the remaining hotels in the Monterey area were well over $300 per night. We ended up booking at the HoJo in Salinas for about 1/4th the price. We got a bigger room than we would have gotten in Monterey, along with a nice king bed and free breakfast. It only took […] us about 25 minutes to get back into the Monterey area and we saved a bundle. Check in was quick and painless, and our king room was clean and comfortable, and surprisingly roomy. My only small complaint is there was some street noise overnight, so we turned on the fan to drown it out a little. I am a VERY light sleeper so this probably wouldn't bother most people. But the bed was comfortable and I got a good night's sleep. The free breakfast was good. They have cold/hot cereal, a waffle maker, mini pastries, toast, and juices/coffee/hot chocolate. We checked out just as fast as we checked in and were on our way after a pleasant, affordable experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close from freeway"
From the pictures of the room it seems much bigger but it's not. The room had a funny smell to it as well as being extra small. For the price you pay you could go to motel 8 and it would be better. Very unhappy with my stay here. Also the toilet and the sink kept getting cloged to where we kept having to wait to go to the bathroom and or wash your hands.This […] place sucked! !

the hotel is located in a quite place also has good comfortable bed also so many channels available for customer of spanish speaking, and good internet serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for the price"
We stayed for 2 nights in the hotel in order to do some trips to the Monterey and Big Sur area. The room was a bit small, but comfortable - had everything we needed, including fridge, micro, coffee machine. The coffee machine was not working but replaced promptly to a new one the next morning. The only thing that I didn't like is the fan in the bathroom […] being very noisy. Breakfast was fine - had also waffles. Hotel was very good for the price we paid.

"a nice place to stay"
It was located in a very quiet part of town. We stayed in the third floor, and the room was clean. The beds were comfortable and clean. If you are looking for restful stay (not luxury), this will be a very good choice. It's close to shops and restaurant (withing a mile or so). We drove to Monterey and nearby beach (about 30 minutes away). So it's easy […] to get to fun places as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnsons - Salinas - Never Again"
Recent night at Howard Johnsons/Salinas. Two rooms for one night & both rooms had problems with door keys upon initial entrance + rooms were ice cold as heaters are off (to conserve energy?). Took over two hours to make room temperature comfortable. Desk staff intimated that we caused problems with room keys (walked to room & inserted keys - our problem?). […] Stayed here twice previously but has gone dramatically downhill during last year - never again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a good low- to -moderate cost hotel that is located near some "iffy" neighborhoods in Salinas. This was not a problem however. The room was comfortable and well appointed but someone had dumped the contents of a pencil sharpener in the sink. The management immediately had that cleaned up and the room was fine. The room was quiet but the heater […] is not connected to an automatic thermostat and has to be manually adjusted. Over all... a good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had gone to this hotel many times, but had not been there for over a year. It has declines some during that year. But the room was clean, the bed was comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Do not stay here! Hotel has many Hookers in, and out on the 1st floor. Nasty place to stay! Never again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were surprised by how nice the room was, for the price. Breakfast room was small but the food choices were pretty good. Had a nice stay and room was quiet. Certainly would use them again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Clean, basic accommodations"
The hotel is basic, clean, but ready for renovation. The room is fine for budget minded people that want something decent but nothing more than basic accommodations. The breakfast is simple but satisfying. The place is good if you just need a clean place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Howard Johnson Salinas-Great deal!"
Clean, comfy room for a great price :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fair Rate in a expected location"
Checkin was fast and easy. Room was comfortable and condition of room was fair. Not really dirty but just worn abit. Surrounding area is a bit poor but it is what Salinas has to offer. Location was great as we went to the annual airshow and close enough to Monterrey Bay. I would stay again at the same rate but not much moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There is a balcony-style hallway which is mildly charming. The hotel is relatively centrally located to bthe downtown and much is within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
We needed something close to Monterey and found this hotel in Salinas. It was outrageously priced due to the major events in the area but not much else was available. I don't know how they got a AAA rating! The room was in significant disrepair and absolutely filthy. Never again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
