    The staff were friendly, parking spacious, and the room had tea/coffee facilities and a fridge. There is a large indoor swimming pool and hot tub. There is a fitness room, but be sure to read comments below.

    The fitness room was marginal with the treadmill not working at all, the recumbent bike being a well-worn home-use machine, and the stack machine being, frankly, in an unsafe condition with frayed cables and broken pulleys. One has to be pretty serious about working out to choose to work on this equipment. The room was a bit small and the AC unit very noisy.

  • 9.2

    Nice laundry and pool. Rooms being updated even though in good condition. Very responsive to requests.

    No complaints

  • 6.2

    Friendly staff, very helpful.

    Hot tub bleached our clothing. Terrible mattresses. Grout stains in bathroom. Nothing on walls, extra mirror would be helpful.

  • 4.6

    Location good. Potentially could be nice when completed.

    No notification that it was in the middle of a renovation. Common areas dirty. Construction in rooms only partially completed. Dried paint on floors, trim not complete. New carpet and paint with old beat up furniture. Should of had discount rate, not prime rate. Ice maker on 2nd floor didn't work. I could go on and on. Major disappointment.

    Location

    The room charge was $352.00, nearly $100.00 over rack rate (amount posted on room door, which is maximum by state law CA Penal Code 1863). They refused to adjust the charge and I had to contact their corporate offices to get my bill reduced to the maximum they were legally allowed to charge customers.

  • 9.2

    Staff was very kind and helpful.

    Laundry room was being remodeled and was not available. Was planning to use it. However, there is a laundry mat close by.

  • 6.6

    Room was nice, I got a free upgrade because the room I originally booked had been dismantled for remodeling and the night clerk was not made aware of it until I found it that way.

    Well the above mentioned remodeling recomenced the next morning earlier than I would have liked. In fact there was no warning of the noise of demolition from the night staff; aside from a cryptic note taped to the check in desk. I might say it was quite disturbing to wake up to the very loud crashing, banging and yelling.

  • 4.6

    Bed was adequate, close but not too close to 101 so it was quiet.

    Shabby room, broken sink, signs say renovation but no actual sign of work being done. Grossly overpriced - a real rip-off, using the fact of university graduation to TRIPLE rates per night.

  • 10.0

    the hot breakfast was awesome and the rooms are great in size which made staying here more comfortable would recommend to everyone and will use Howard Johnson every time I need accommodations

  • 6.6

    Waffles were amazing!

    A lot of renovations!

  • 10.0

    Breakfast was great.

    Could've of used a little more shampoo siince there were 5 of us in one room. Asked for more but was given a small amount. (penny worth.)

  • 9.2

    Almost everything else here was fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    The towels were like prison towels. Not that I've been to prison, of course. But what I would imagine prison towels to be like. This was the only downfall to this hotel.

  • 7.4

    quiet, laundry

  • 9.6

    Clean, friendly staff, quiet, safe, good breakfast

  • 4.6

    Efficient staff. Area is quiet.

    Room 224 furniture was in poor condition, veneer had been deeply scratched, exposed press board. Bed fair to good.
