Shower was broken and the room was not up to the standard expected for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was great place to stay just for sleeping over and hit the beach all day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location for hotel"
The rooms are old feeling and need updating. Only 1 or 2 outlets worked in the room the rest wouldn't hold our plugs. The bathrooms are old and need updating. Staff was excellant and is in a great location around anything you need and minutes from the beach. We were VERY happy with the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were not clean. Were not cleaned while we were out for over 12 hours. There were no clean towels. When calling to complain we were told to talk to the manager who has yet to return our call. We have left several messages. We will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not wonderful but not bad. Staff was nice. Room was comfortable. Carpets could use cleaning. It's close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room smelled awful"
The room smelled awful on initial entry. We had to turn on the A/C unit right away and open the window. We left the room for a few hours to let it air out, and it helped a bit. The rest of the stay was fine. The continental breakfast was a joke.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson motel"
Friendly staff, clean rooms, fun warm jacuzzi, but would be a nicer place if they took more pride on their landscaping. Lots of potential.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Yup it sucksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pool was dirty, bedding was not clean-it had hair and stains on itGenuine Expedia guest review
Stay somewhere elseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Place is too small where you can get your food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would only stay here again because it's close to the beach. It's a motel! Nothing fancy.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good enough for a place to stay"
It was ok, a place to stay, clean enough, pool really small and dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beaches"
Upon arrival very accomidating. After a couple of days service lacked, loud, and no Internet service. Hotel description said they had a pool and they did not only a jacuzzi. It was in the 100's and it would of been nice to have a pool for us to cool of in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hit the accelerator pedal !"
Absolutely. NOT worth the money. The room was dirty ! With mold staring me in the face ! Internet was a Joke ! Pool is Nothing . We paid more than $ 100 . I complained at the front desk , the only thing they Said was we'll inform management . I told that wasn't enough , they looked at me very strange . So they Said they were gonna refund-actie trough […] hotels.com Sofar Nothing happened. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to beach and Anaheim Stadium;"
Staff VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL; new flat screen TV's were being added to ALL rooms that week we were there; very budget friendly.... would stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"some what ok"
Needs renovationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Towels were dirty, sheets on both beds were dirty/stained! I wouldn't be surprised if the hotel maids were not putting clean bedding/towels in the rooms and just re-folding dirty towels and re-making the beds with the same used/slept in sheets! I will never stay at another Howard Johnson again!! $110 for one night I at least expect clean towels/bedding. […] I would give this hotel a negative star rating if I could!

Very nice. Quick check in. Staff was very sweet and room was clean and comfortable. I liked that the AC worked very well as it was incredibly hot that day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, friendly staff"
Really good value for the price, no major complaints. Continental breakfast was minimal, but it filled the belly and didnt have to find a restaurant somewhere else. Easy drive to the beaches and to Disneyland. Bryan at the front desk did an exceptional job.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The staff was fine, but the arrangement was jus ok"
The staff was fine but the overall experience was just ok, but you get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
Non smoking room smelled like a chain smoker stayed there for a year. Booked 2 nights, only honored one. Room key did not work first time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a happy 1st time at Howard"
The service was horrible. The room were old and dirty not what the pictures said.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The brand Howard Johnson is actually better than what I stayed at last weekend. The pillows were horrible and extremely uncomfortable. The toilet water ran continuously. The housekeeping staff knocked too early on our check out day and had to be told we were sleeping but then we couldn't get back to sleep. Our stay could have been much better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room could really use remodel. Front office was nice but room was really outdated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay on third floor"
The cleaning lady woke us up every morning at 7 am and helped herself into our room even though our do not disturb sign was up. We were given a room on the third floor and te hotel only has one elevator on the other side of te building. A family of 5 kids was put in the room next to us all day they pounded on our wall and a few times they would knock […] on our door and run. I called the front desk to complain and nothing was done. Let not forget the band that was staying there that felt it was necessary to blow their trumpets at 6 am for warm up. And if that didn't wake you up the rooster that lives in the house next door surely will. We won't be returning to Howard Johnson any time soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pay more to stay elsewhere"
Felt like a motel 6 quality...ammenities in the room but felt run down and low qualityGenuine Expedia guest review
I was very pleased with my recent accommodation at your Inn. The location was convenient for my purposes . Immediate access to major transportation was very helpful. Many thanks. l. lafontaineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for what we paid for"
This is the second time we stayed at Howard Johnson Express Inn. This is not a 5 star establishment, but it was quite sufficient for our needs and we didn't have to pay high prices. Beds were made daily (we stayed 4 nights), breakfast was okay and we were offered more if needed. We felt safe and it wasn't a rowdy place. All staff were friendly. I liked […] it enough to come back. And I will continue to come back should we ever need to stay in Huntington Beach again. Overall, a good experience for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend this hotel."
Hotel needs an over-haul. Seemed more like a motel 6. Price was high for being so run down. Moved to a different hotel the second night. People next door partying and smoking pot till 3am. Pillows felt and looked like they were stuffed with socks. Will not recommend to anyone. Only benefit was the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Vintage is ok...but not well kept vintage. Bathrooms were gross as was the carpet - and the TV was vintage as well. Really now...just put a little money into the place! And do some work on that free breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!"
If I knew it was that run down I would have spent an extra $40 and stayed at a nicer hotel. The blankets had holes in them, the mattress was lumpy, the bathroom had mold in it and I found a hair on my hand towel. The SO CALLED breakfast included old muffins, apples, toast and some nasty cereal. I will never stay here ever again!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could have had better maid service"
Shower curtain wouldn't close completely. When they cleaned they failed to leave soap at the sink and didn't replace soap in shower/ some of the white towels weren't so white(yuk) . Finally the night before we checked out the door key broke. It didn't get repaired "immediately. Staff was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
The room smell like cigarettes, it was not very clean and it is not very close to the beach. Not a very good breakfast. The Jacuzzi was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Walked in to room and the room smelled terrible, turned around went to the office and asked for my refund. They told me that I would have to take this issue up with hotel.com with I intend on doing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My overall experience is OK."
The facility needs to be repaint the outside and carpet need to replace. Other than that, no complain. Location is good, close to 405 freeway and to the beachGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel experience"
Concerns with Hotels.com not forwarding our reservation to the hotel, but the night manager, Mike, was extremely helpful and accommodating while it was worked out. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was more than expected or experienced anywhere else. We won't hesitate to return to this hot […] el.

THE WOMAN AT THE COUNTER WAS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND EXTREMELY NICE. She called me a cab, and was full of personalityGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"generally dissapointed with the accomodations"
The look of the place was very different from the pictures. The outside of the hotel was not maintained very well at all. It appeared there were people living in thisplsc kind of what you would see in a welfare hotel. Folks leaving shoes and boots outside the door. The rooms were old but were clean, the beds were comfortable enough. The maid service […] was fine.I don't see myself recomending this hotel overall I was genuenly dissapoiunted Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for the price in this area"
Though this Howard Johnson's is not overly fancy, it was a fantastic deal for the area--at $79 a night, with some hotels in area upwards of $140 per night, this was great. Only drawback was noise carries when people are outside (smoking) but it was minimal--the one couple that was outside talking just seemed to be unaware of the noise carrying, and […] went inside and quieted down when they knew others were bothered. Not a problem. LIke this place--fridge, microwave, coffee maker, nice tub, nice toiletries, great muffins in morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Just a place to stay"
Nothing fancy about this hotel, just needed a place to stay for a half marathon in Huntington Beach. TV could be better, smelled like someone smoked in the room even though it was a non-smoking room. The staff did let us check out later than normal due to the race starting late.Genuine Expedia guest review
