Reasonable price for the comfortable accommodation

same as above. we could have stayed longer but the price for the july 4th evening is just outrageous and not within our budget. Also, the name of the hotel is confusing: I booked Traveler Inn as it still appears on this website but it is really Howard Johnson, hence was difficult to find initially.

No parking, spiders and no towels

The only good thing about this place is that we were traveling with a 3 year old so having a suite was great. The first thing I saw in the bedroom was a spider. Found two more by the end of the stay. The parking lot was tiny and completely full. The beds were ok but I used my own pillow out of fear. They painted the stairs while we were there and didn't put up a "wet paint" sign so we got paint all over our shoes. Lucky for them we noticed and didn't track it into the room. We paid for 4 people and only received 2 towels. When I asked for more towels, housekeeping argued with me and demanded my other towels before giving me any more. Only ever got 3 towels out of them. The price was too much to deal with the conditions and bad service. I would have stayed at the motel next door except we needed the suite. Only stay here if you really are desperate. We were going to the international boat show so I think prices were outrageously inflated. We payed $300 for two nights (including taxes and fees) and I feel robbed.

"VERY BAD" Stay Away

Creepy. The maid service was yet to be found and when we did get someone to come by, they just dump the trash and took the towels without replacing them. That's day 1. Day 2 we left and had a very long day stayed with family. Day 3, still no service, call front desk to ask what happen and told that the is not finshed it's 4:00 pm at 6:00 pm go to the front office. Asked about maid services, and told they are gone for the day, nothing can be done until tomorrow. WHAT? This is not what I paid for, but again maybe it was. never never again!!!!

Don't honor reservations.

This hotel oversold the reservation and did not help my friend's 18 year old daughter find another hotel. They could have cared less and they don't belong on the reservation website.

Looks can be decieving

The hotel on the outside looked really run down. It looked like you would get jumped if came to the room too late. The lady at the front office looked like she was high on 12 different things and even the supervisor looked like he rode a lowrider bycicle. The room itself was actually not that bad. We had a fridge and 50 for a suite is a good price. It looked like someone had stolen the microwave and the tv had horrible picture.

Not bad for the price

Hotel wasn't bad for the price. The pool was out of order. Room description said king size bed and got stuck with a full. Rooms are cute (they have a little kitchen, sofa-bed in living room, and bedroom separate from each other).

OK.

There for pleasure. Spent little time in hotel. Room was clean and pleasant but the TV had poor reception and there was no remote. Bathtub was a composit tub/shower combo which is ok, but the bottom of the tub had a big hump which made sitting uncomfortable. The bool was in bad shape, peeling plaster and empty. The location was great. Close to the freeway with plenty of restaurants close by.
