Good hotel needs more pillows but otherwise I would stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quality has gone down"
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.

"Decent room for a fair price"
Nice & quiet stay Glad the a/c was on (not like in other places) so we walked in to a nice fresh room. The place is a bit outdated but can't complainGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad for $50/nt - easy access to I-8."
Front desk gave me a suite that had a living room and kitchen attached. New carpet, bed wasn't too bad - sheets were good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not too bad."
Our room was clean, the service was good, but the room could use some updating. Not enough parking for all the guests, we had to park in the street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Broken tv and internet a daily hassel"
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.

"one night only."
This was one of the cheapest Hotel in the area, and I got what I paid for I guess. 1. the signal from the free Wifi was so weak that it would not load a web page. 2. shower head was at my chin, and I am average height (5' 10"). 3. Free breakfast did not start until 9am, had to be at work before then. Beds were ok, furniture was as expected. TV worked […] well, so did microwave and Fridge. If all you need a bed to crash for the night, this is the place. anythings else, upgrade. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"over all very good"
booked 6 nights but only stayed 2, got sick had to go back home, so lost my prepaid. not anyones fault.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"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

"Lobby access by invitation only"
12/05/14 William S Hendersonville
Arrived 5:00 p.m. to check in...lobby door locked. Owner/manager opened door enough to ask what I wanted and allowed me in after learning I had a reservation. That seemed odd. Room had bedside table light that wood not work with the switch...tried to follow the cord to the elect. outlet but it went under the kingsized and heavy bed to an outlet behind the bed and invisible without moving the bed. Next morning I went to the lobby at 8:00 a.m. to use the guest personal computer to check a local birding listserver. The lobby door was again locked and when I pulled on the door a couple of times, the owner/manager came out from an interior room and directed me to the "night window" access where he could speak to me through a metal plate in the glass. When I told him I wished to use the computer, he said it was not useable until 9:00 a.m. Not a very guest friendly hotel in my estimation. I didn't have an hour to twiddle my thumbs, so I began my day without the information I had been planning on using to aid in my search for birds.

I was very impressed how the room decor looked and how clean the room looked. One thing that I feel I need to mention is that the "owner" who was working the front desk was stand-offish and a bit rude. Not sure if that was her personality or not. Other than that we had a nice stay.
"if I could give it a 0 I would"
11/11/14 888israell Hollister, California
Rooms were very clean but that is all I can say nice about this place. WiFi did not work jacuzzi did not work, I took my kids to the pool at around 1 pm in the afternoon and was immediately asked by manager for my kids to be quiet because there were patient's asleep in the rooms next to the pool.. Come to find out this hotel has a contract with the hospital. After speaking with management about how unfair this was to my children they were unable to see my point of view. So we packed up and left to motel 6. I do not reccomend this motel to anyone one.
"Worth the price"
10/24/14 David B Anchorage
Not the nicest place I've ever stayed, but well worth the price. Other hotels in the same town rated the same on reviews and cost three times the price. Down side was the refrigerator temp was messed up, but the staff was more than willing to accommodate.
"Spacious and clean room"
10/10/14 Geraldine C Escondido
I was very pleased with my one-night stay at the Super 8. The room was extremely spacious and would have been big enough for at least 4 people. Everything was clean, including the carpet. The air-conditioner worked well and there was an overhead fan also! I was traveling alone and felt very safe there.
"Borrego Springs Regulars"

We stay here because management a staff are always helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfy. Stayed in a two-room suite for a great price. Breakfast is basic.
"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.
07/20/14 Barbara C El Centro
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.
07/15/14 Thomas Ross C San Diego, California
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.
07/07/14 Ute H El Centro
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.
