This place will be my last choice next time! Noisy neighbors yelling obscenely at each other. Washing machines out of order with one half full of dirty water. Laundry room window left open for people to crawl in and out all hours day and night. Rude, arrogant front desk clerk threatened to throw us out because of his error -... More

Front desk had no interest in providing local knowledge. When asked for details of Trolley was told to go to the station to get details. On the way back I went into Best Western, as I had to pass them, and they printed off the route & timetable for me. We had no stopper( plug ) for our sink. Three... More

A chunk of ceiling plaster had come off at some point and had not been repaired prior to my arrival - I had a distinct impression that I had the last/worst room available. Then mid-way through my stay, during a rainy night, I was woken by the sound of water leaking through the roof. I called reception and they sent... More

Howard Johnson in Chula Vista, San Diego is a simple place but provides the right comforts. I feel at home and the people there are very accommodating, especially Ms. Sheryl Olibar who has been very accommodating and friendly. Their staff are friendly and my room is always clean.

This hotel has a complete functioning kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave. But it is not well maintained. Bedroom is clean, also the bathroom so that gives it extra points. Parking lot is fenced and with card control then is safer, also has video surveillance. Wifi was baaaad.

The exterior of the hotel is not as beautiful but the interior of the room is great. The manager is extremely friendly and helpful. She went out of her way to make sure our stay is outstanding. We will be returning to this hotel again and again.

Disclaimer : if you can't stand bugs at all, skip this review. I usually take pictures of my hotel rooms where ever I go for review purposes, but this hotel was so gross that I didn't even want to take out my camera! We stayed here for 3 nights in July, 2014 for SDCC. It was a last minute booking,... More
