I'm glad you ask. The stay was regular to start off the bathroom is very bad for a disabled person, my room did not have microwave or refrigerator just because I pay with a discount the first day but I pay the regular paid the second day no same room and the front desk should be more friendly.

Everything was excellent! I arrange a honey moon package for the room and was perfect! The only thing that they should improve was that the continental breakfast was cold because of issues with the breaker but the assitant was kind enough warming the oatmeal and cofee for us.

I'm here for 7 weeks for work and am living in this hotel. Let me say I am in a king bed room with a micro fridge and microwave, which have been useful. The room overall only has a few issues to mention. However for the money you pay I'm sure you can find a better deal elsewhere. First off... More

We requested and received a high floor with a great air conditioner. We were only there for one night before we sailed on the Celebrity Summit and it was a very nice room for a night. We did look out on the freeway vs. the ocean, but the room was very clean, very nice, and we had a mini fridge.... More

It was ok to stay at this hotel . Should you need something that is quite basic with continental bfast then I recommend this hotel. If you are looking something more luxury, I suggest you look for somewhere else. I was very pleased and customer service was wonderful

I had my preconceived notions about the Howard Johnson historically though I've never stayed there. The rooms weren't the biggest but the service was quality and the design was modern. It is smack dab in the middle of everything and within walking distance to all the restaurants. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was extremely modern. We had some... More
