Not a happy experience

The hotel overall is very run down, and while the front desk staff is very friendly and helpful.. the room is in very bad condition. Bathroom sink did not drain, shower sprayed off, sticky stains on carpet, stains on walls. Needs a lot of work.

Great price, rooms clean

Location of hotel very close to our sons home. Our room was large and clean. Served purpose well for the price we paid. Not enough parking, traffic out to street difficult but we would stay again for same price and to be near our son/family.

Bad Mattress, Dirty Room

The mattress was awful. The floor and some other parts of the room were dirty. The safe didn't work and the staff didn't know how to make it work.

Smh

Found a couple roaches crawling around on the floor. I didn't bother complaining about it given I checked in just before 1am and just wanted sleep. The TV turned on my itself around 4am, that was odd. And the manager I checked out with that morning wasn't exactly the warmest. A lot of this I can let go but the roaches are definitely preventing me was ever wanting to come back.

Well.....

The good thing about the hotel, is that the maids are very nice, even though English is not their first language. The staff at the counter in the lobby could use a class in How To Satisfy Your Customers, without even trying. Breakfast time, is unwelcoming to the stiff staff member(s) at the counter. He made no effort to please any of the few requests I made. At first I thought he forgot, but i soon realized a few days later, that he truly did not like to do ANYTHING extra. The maids are awesome, as I said before. The pool, on the other hand, was beautiful to look at. However, the pool chairs should be melted down. They are dangerous, broken, unuseful, and very, VERY, dirty. Beautiful pool, we had to jump in the pool to get the dirt off our bodies! Better to have no chairs, than those chairs. Be good if we had pool towels, but sadly, towels were on strike I guess. We hope that we have made you laugh or smile when you read this comment.

Good for the price

We reserved connecting rooms, one room with a king the other with a double, for my family. When we arrived late we were assigned two seperate rooms. The staff at the hotel reassigned us a room with two queens. The staff made up for it beautifully by giving us a suite with an adjacent double-bed room for the rest of our stay. The staff doesn't come across as being that friendly, but they worked with me beautiful. Of course for the price we paid we can't complain about a single thing.

Visit Kids

The Continental Breakfast was some what lacking as compared to other places I have stayed. My wake up call was programed incorrectly. The refrigerator was dirty around the hinges and weather stripping - disgusting. The bed was just terribly sagging. It looked like a big square bowl. The room as a whole was fairly clean.

does the job

Needed a place just to stay the night that was not near Disneyland and at a good price. This fit what I was looking for. Clean and comfortable. Got a good night's sleep and were on our way early the next day.

A Good place to lay your head....

After attending a dinner party in the area it was a nice place to take a cab back to for the evening. To have a place to get ready, a shower to use and a safe bed to travel a short distance to, the Howard Johnson worked. The continental breakfast was acceptable with bagels, toast, cereal, oatmeal, coffee and tampico (not orange juice) Nothing fancy though, the bed was not soft, the towels were thin, the toilet paper was single ply, but they had a TV :-) and a ready chair. Room was big though, as was the bathroom area...

Old Town Orange circle has really improved in the last five years. Much less antique stores and many more nice, appealing restaurants, and even a new bar for post college adults...
