"Right off the 8 freeway"
I booked the Howard Johnson for 2 nites June 2012. When we arrived in the area, I had a hard time finding the hotel. Luckily my son found a small Howard Johnson sign. The large freeway sign was for Super 8. The items in the hotel said Super 8. We entered the room (no elevator) on 2nd floor heaving our luggage up steps to a room that had no lamps plugged […] in. We had a hard time initially entering room. The bathroom was EXTREMELY tiny. Big room overall. Needed finishing touches to make it look a bit more pristine. For less than $60 a nite though, I wouls stay there again. The owners need to do the little things to tidy up the place. The linens were clean and the a/c was good & cold.

"Great hotel for the price and location."
This is the second time I have stayed here in a couple of weeks and it was consistent with the first time. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. The staff was great and the continental breakfast included many choices. I will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great bang for the buck"
The staff were very nice and courteous. My room was clean, however, when I checked in the microwave was not clean. I left a note for the housekeeping staff and it was cleaned the next day. No problems after that. Close to restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for comfort, ammenities, and price."
This is a great hotel for the price range in El Centro. It is as good as those hotels charging 20-30% more money with the same ammenities. The location is close to downtown. The room was clean, well appointed, and updated. The bed was comfortable and the linens were newer. The free contintental breakfast was fresh and had many options to choose from. […] I will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The toilet seat needs to be replaced. It is a wooden seat that has the painted surface cracking creating an unsanitary condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleepless in El Centro"
The room was clean but the walls and windows not sufficient to prevent noise and wind. Was unable to sleep due to noise. Also, the blanket was almost glued to underneath the mattress and made it uncomfortable. Slept at an angle.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what I expected"
They need to care for the motel more! Room 107 had graffiti all over the windows n the lock was broken. Had to switch out rooms and all they had was the handicap room and was not to comfy. Would not stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
I read some of the other reviews and had some concerns, but I was happy with this hotel. Location is excellent right off I-8. Manager was helpful. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Did not have their free breakfast, so I can't speak to that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johson Inn El Centro on Ocotillo"
I have to say that based on the price I expected this to be an average location. I was pleasantly surprised by the facility and the staff. I've stayed at several Franchise Hotel Chains and the service ranges from Lackluster to Hostile. The owners and staff of THIS Howard Johnson were EXCELLENT. From check-in to Maintenance Service to Housekeeping. A […] friendlier staff couldn't have been asked for. The Facility is showing some age but is well kept and very comformtable. I have no complaints what-so-ever about my stay. And I can say that I will stay there again should my travels take me to El Centro, CA. Excellent Job Howard Johnson Inn El Centro!

"El Centro Howard Johnsons"
Working in the area on expenses. Got a great rate. Good location, clean rooms with older decor, Worth the money if you are working and want to save some expense money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed my stay very much. Only have one suggestion - the bed would be much more comfortable if there was a mattress cover on it. I slept on top of both sheets because the mattress looked soiled from the sweat of other people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Improved a lot"
this hotel did a lot of update since we came last year, they painted walls and even provide free breakfast, will come back again for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Prima hotel voor een prima prijs"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel. I'll come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good ove rall"
If needed, i would pick the same hotel. The Only inconvenience was that hot shower water only lasted a few minutes. Other than that, great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good place to stay"
09/02/14 cpicasner Rochester, NY
There are two buildings, the main one has a small outdoor pool. Rooms are narrow and only one chair.t had a microwave and a refrigerator. The water is warm, too warm to drink. If you use the desk, there is not enough room behind the chair to walk to the bathroom area. There is an outside sink. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure fine, but the shower head is low. The fan is very loud and sounds like it's ready to go. the bed was okay but the blanket was short. The pillows were full but small, maybe 16 inches square. The room wasn't very quiet. The A/C was on when we came into the room which was good because it was 107 degrees outside.

The Super 8 in El Central is like my home away from home. The staff makes me feel welcomed and comfortable. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

My only problem was the stopper in the tub did not work properly. I take hot theriputic baths for my back and water would not stay in the tub.

This Super 8 Hotel is the best hotel of the chain that I have ever stayed in. The room was nice and cool and smelled fresh all the time I was there. The staff was extremely nice and helpful and they opened the breakfast room on time to have an early walk to avoid overheating. Also, great location to the freeway and stores and restaurants.

"Review Super 8 El Centro"
06/04/14 Barbara C El Centro
I have been going to this Super 8 in El Centro for business for almost 2 years. The front office staff is very helpful and does everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the bed is very comfortable as well. The suites have a full kitchen and living room but the regular rooms also have a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot as well. I love staying here. It is like my home away from home. I feel very comfortable and safe especially as a single woman traveling. I highly recommend it! Great value also!

We often choose to stay here as it is close to shopping & food & drink etc. My biggest complaint would be the pillows. They are just too small & very uncomfortable to try to sleep with. The rooms are clean and we get a good price. I always choose a ground floor room & they are happy to accomodate unless they are really full up. We live in San Felipe Mx. so El Centro is good for shopping for us.

This is a good place to stay for 1 or 2 nights. Clean and simple, firendly,and quiet. It was recommended by friends, who normally stayed in the Vacation Inn.
"The room was ok. The bathroom was extremely small, with..."
03/24/14 Kimberly I El Centro
The room was ok. The bathroom was extremely small, with the type of shower curtain that was used you couldn't open the bathroom door all the way. Also the shower head was extremely low....even when adjusting it high it was still low and I'm not a tall person. The decor was nice other than the huge picture that was above the bed had a big yellow stain on it. The television was a little tricky to turn on and the internet password that was given to me didn't work so I couldn't connect to the internet. The pillows on the bed were very small like accent pillows for a sofa...good thing I brought my pillow from home with me or I would have been very uncomfortable.
"A Maybe for Next Time"
02/24/14 Colin D Sherwood Park, Canada
Price was high for what we got. Room was o.k. Breakfast was poor. Everything worked in room but was not commensurate with the amount charged for the room. Have not staid in other brands in El Centro to make a valid comparison. Previous night was a Best Western Plus in Lake Elsinore for $15 less per night and everything was first class there.
