So, my first impression of the room was "what a dump"! Apparently they have only remodeled some of the rooms. Our room was not a remodeled one. The room was CLEAN, which is very important and never saw a bug. There were small holes in the ceiling, there were spots on the walls that had been patched but not painted.... More

First off let me say that for this hotel to be a Howard Johnson hotel it lacks expectations. We booked this hotel last minute and unfortunately we stayed here.

Check in was friendly. Hotel is on a good location for disney and other amusementpark. Citadel outlet near by. Hotel is old, although rooms are big enough. But rooms need an update. We used it on our way out of the city.

This horrible hotel should PAY people to stay there.....There were vile stains on the chairs, furniture, carpets, towels and throughout the bathroom. The floors weren't clean.The beds were shoddy. The linen was torn. The hotel smelled terrible. The lights flickered and the A/C wouldn't stay on throughout the evening. And---the clerks' suggestions for restaurants were dreadful. When I asked for... More

We stayed there 1 night and got there about 2pm. David, at front counter said we could check in early. We were going to a comedy show in Santa Monica that night and he gave us the best directions ever. Mapquest had us going up the 5 which he said would be alot of traffic. We saved alot of time....
