We travel to San Diego 3-4 times a year and always stop in El Centro for a place to sleep. We have stayed at this motel several times when it was a Howard Johnson. We were impressed with the updates of this motel. Not luxury but very clean, comfortable, updated and right off the freeway. Great hotel for the price.

Overall stay was nice. The rooms are nice and kept clean. The only problem we had was that we booked a double queen room and was given a double bed room. The staff quickly accomodated us to the correct room. This is not a five star hotel, but it is a nice, clean and quiet stay for the money you pay. The housekeeping lady is always cleaning and always bringing clean towels and other amenities.

Great budget hotel. We arrived late but check-in was easy and we were at our room in a few minutes. My only complaint is that the shower head is inexplicably low. I would guess that they have it in the wall at around five feet high. As a 6' male, this is annoying to say the least, but it's not a reason to avoid the hotel, which otherwise was great.

The room was clean and comfortable. No complaints here, only a couple of suggestions. 1) Four pillows is better than three, and 2) nice new TVs, but would be a lot better if they had HD quality reception. Also coffee maker didn't work.

We have stayed at this HoJo many times in the past 2 years. We have always had a wonderful, friendly stay...until this one. Jacuzzi was broken, ice machine was broken, breakfast food quality was lacking (bananas either mushy or not yet ripe, oranges browning and soft, cereal stale,). Plenty of milk and OJ, individually packaged muffins, bagels, etc. in breakfast room but fruit was not up to par. Staff is very friendly and accessible. Room was not very clean. It had been vacuumed and 'wiped down' but there were discarded tissues and food wrappers behind TV stand and nightstand. There were people 'partying' across the small side street from us, which is not the motel's fault, but disturbing nonetheless. One of the other motel guests had a dog which 'did it's business' right outside the door to our room. Unfortunately my granddaughter stepped in it before she saw it. I like to stay at a hotel/motel that we have frequented in the past but I'm afraid we will be staying elsewhere on our next visit to the El Centro/Imperial area.

I stayed here for several weeks so i really got a feel for the place. The sheets one night had blood stains on them. The internet never worked. The pool is very small. the management does not speak english or spanish this presented a problem when trying communicate the different issues that arose. Oh and when i arrived the first few days i had painters coming in and out of my room to pain the door and windows.

It all started off badly when my FIRST few hours in the hotel room, my windows and door was taped up by a crew of men peeping into my window. I woke up the next day at 6am to them loudly repainting the hotel an ugly yellow color. 4 hours later I was allowed out of my door that they taped off to discover they had covered my car in plastic to prevent it from being sprayed. NO manager phone call ahead of time to inform me to move my car. Other events included maids not cleaning my room for 2 days in a row, a tv that received 9 very bad channels (i had to request a repair), broken internet for 2 days (and once that was fixed, it froze and didn't load pages fully), and an AC unit that blasts like a jet engine. The only positive about this place was the ICE cold fridge. Someone was working outside my door or above my ceiling 24/7 pounding. Truly an awful experience, I had to cut out 10 days early and go to a nearby hotel. Nice job losing hundreds of dollars from me HoJo, the managers at this facility need to be reconsidered, they didn't handle any problem effectively, I will never stay at a Howard Johnson again.

We zaten in het "bijgebouw" aan de overkant van de weg. De kamer was prima in orde. Bedden waren erg goed en het was erg schoon. Het ontbijt was (zelfs voor Amerikaanse begrippen) wel erg karig. Alleen maar sneetjes brood en een broodrooster. Toch wel een aanrader.

Paid $224 for a roach motel....i reserved a King room, upon arrival i received a queen, the AC barely blew cold, in the Desert, AC is a MUST, shower head was made for midgets, im a tall guy, up keeping outside looked dirty, wifi was horrible, very slow or lost connection often. Very disappointed.

"Very nice and clean hotel"
04/04/15 Traveler_Bewerter .
We used some from our Wyndham-points for a one night stay. We got an upgrade and very positiv was that the room are very clean. We didn´t had enought time to use the pool, but we saw the same very clean. This hotel was the best Super 8 since 4 years which we used. Only the breakfast should be have more different variations. They prepared a Special room only for breakfast. That´s positiv based on our experience that some hotels/motels are only have 2 - 3 tables and chairs in the "Lobby":

"Gs wedding"
04/03/15 Les L Lincoln, Nebraska
Great place for the price! The room we had was clean and comfortable . The family operators were very courteous and pleasant. Several choices for restaurants just down the street. Small bathroom, but a good shower. The tv was ok - but could not get CBS, ABC or NBC. Several others including HBO were ok. Would stay there again because of the great price.
Overall Rating
"Super 8 does not meet Wyndom or TripAdvisor Standards"
03/18/15 Jim P Tucson
Looks like 40 year old building from the outside, peeling paint and siding pulling away from the building. The first room they have gave me, the phone did not work, the radio was not plugged in and toilet would not stop running. I went back to the and she did not know what to do. So another nice off duty lady took over and forced the issue to find a up grade room. She took me to room 108. It is a two room suite and everything worked in the rooms. So I took it. But when I went to close the East window drapes I looked out the window and it was spray painted with gang graffiti (see attached picture). You can not checkout until after 7 AM. As the family who lives behind the counter area does not get up until then. Breakfast is a joke. Four or five tables cramped into a single room. You can get coffee, but no cream. Dry cereal with milk from a half gallon jug in the refrigerator. No fruit, no pastries no eggs no bacon, no pancakes or waffles. It does not meet Wyndom standards at any level! Someone needs to rethink your joint efforts with Super 8.
Overall Rating
"Overall my experience was satisfactory. The breakfast..."

Overall my experience was satisfactory. The breakfast could have used more choices, but I have to balance that with the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

"Had to stop for the night.."
03/12/15 Kenneth M Parker
Cheap hotel when we decided not to drive all the way home. The staff was polite and prompt. There were cigarette burn holes in the comforter and we could not get the internet to connect. The room was clean. We were only there for about 9 hours total.
Overall Rating
"Can't Judge a book by the cover, looks can deceive."
02/03/15 Mel M Carman
I stayed here for two nights. I was a little hesitant when I drove up as I had booked room in advance from Phoenix. I used my Wyndham rewards to stay there as it only required 8000 points which is great for a Super 8. And the best part was when I left a night early they refunded my points!!!!
