Usually, when I'm shopping for inexpensive motels, I read reviews saying, "You get what you pay for." That could not be farther truth at the Howard Johnsons in Marina, CA. The staff reminds one more of a family bed and breakfast than a motel: they are so friendly, generous, and helpful The brteakfast might be the best part; itcould hardly... More

We stayed here for one night in August on our way up the coastal road to San Francisco. We are three sisters and wanted to share a room. The motel was almost full, but the staff went out of their way to accommodate us, even phoning staff who were off duty so that they could come in and prepare a... More

A good one night stay on our trip to the Monterey/Carmel area. The Motel is quiet and has large clean rooms. I like firm beds so I had a very comfortable night's sleep. The breakfast room is tiny (1/4 the size of our hotel room!) so its probably a good idea to take breakfast back to your room. There was... More

We slept at the Howard Johnson Inn for 4 nights after a sudden late accommodation search. The lady that runs the inn was extremely kind even if we were that late. The place was clean, close to Monterey and there was breakfast included. As well as cookies at the reception!

I stayed here with my daughter the night before she moved into her dorm at CSUMB and this will be where I stay from now on when I'm in town. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet at a reasonable price. Good service seems to be a lost art for most businesses these days but this place has it down.... More
