My husband and I took an overnight trip to the Monterey area, and this hotel is in a convenient location to the beaches and Cannery Row. When we checked in, we were offered free water bottles and freshly baked cookies! The room was nice and clean, with a microwave, mini-fridge, and hair dryer. The free breakfast was substantial, serving mini... More

Hotel was as advertised. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We drove in to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. It is a short drive and much less expensive than staying directly in one of those areas. There is a gas station in front of the hotel, but we were not disturbed by it.

I was looking for an inexpensive yet comfortable and quiet motel near the Moss Landing area and was delighted to find the Howard Johnson in Marina. The room and bed were very comfortable and I got an excellent night's sleep. I brought my favorite travel pillow along and was saddened to find I had forgotten it when I returned home.... More

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
