Son and I traveled to Monterey so he could attend the Freshman Orientation at CSUMB. The Howard Johnson far exceeded our expectations. The incredibly warm, gracious welcoming from Lupita and the General Manger really set the tone of expectation. The room as noted in other review's was clean, spacious, and very well appointed. I really enjoyed the step out balcony... More
