Recent guest reviews

The room was clean and quiet. Towels and bath needs were supplied enough for the guests.

Not bad for the price of the competition motels out there

Everything was great, just wish there was WiFi and and and and

Cockroaches every where , hairs everywhere not good gross

It was a nice hotel where I could rest and make a stop trought my long trip to Sacramento.

it was very convenient and comfortable place to stay. On our way to Palm Beach from San Jose and needed a place in the middle to rest. Howard Johnson fit the bill perfectly. Free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast a big plus. I would recommend if you need a comfortable place to stay.

Very nice and affordable. Last minute choice, but was perfect. Would stay again.

There was hair in the bathtub. The tub stopper was dirty, old, and disgusting. The freezer in the room refrigerator. The breakfast consisted of poor choice of foods. The agent at the desk did not want to give me a receipt when I checked out. She said travel agency would email me a receipt after check out. I will never stay there again!

Staff did put us in a new room. Rooms are kinda dirty but super cheap

The room was fine just passing through on the way to San Jose just needed a place to sleep it was just fine.

Clean room and convenient location on the way to Vegas from the Bay Area. Fast check-in. Decent continental breakfast.

ROOM WAS WARM AT FIRST EMPLOYEE WASNT TO FRIENDLY WISH BETTER FOOD DURING BREAKASFT

Just wanted an easy to freeway place to sleep and that's all we got. Bed comfortable, but carpet really old and filthy. Rain dripping in through ceiling. This place needs major refurbishment!

I usually don't give reviews but this stay was totally sweet! Good price, convenient location, clean room. We enjoyed our stay will be returning in the future.

Enjoy my stay after a long drive. The room was clean, bed sheets were clean and soft. Had a great night sleep! I will be returning in the near future.

the stay was very nice the room was very clean and very quite. hoping to stay again

Arrived late at night and was greeted by a woman who didn't really seem to care. Paid an extra $5.00 to have a smoking room. Was told upon check in that to get a smoking room and would have to upgrade. Of course the woman blamed ***** for over booking, but was not at all conciliatory at all. I accepted the room and made the comment that I would smoke outside and she made a matter of fact statement that it had to be away from the building.

Clean nice room. Nothing special but nothing unsavory or wrong. The staff was awful. We went in to the front desk upon arrival. She immediately kicked me out, locked the doors and said she would be back. After 15 minutes of waiting in the cold she came back, got my room and sent me on my way. When I had initially arrived I told her we had dogs (2), the website said $10 for our pets. She came up to us while unloading our car and asked for $20. We gave her $10, telling her that was what was advertised on the website, she argued and told us that we would have to come to the front desk, we refused and explained to her why we were only paying $10 for our pets. Overall the hotel was clean and safe. The room was old, peeling wall paper and stained sheets but it was sanitary (sheets were clean). It was exactly what we paid for minus the terrible customer service.

I enjoyed my stay. it was clean comfort and it was a good price. i don't want to say everything for perfect, but things were taken care of

The staff are rude, so i cancelled the extention of my stay & was charged $40! Real good scam!
