We stayed for one night at this motel. Our room had no immediate neighbors so it was very quiet. The floors had been recently changed to laminate. There was a small patio about 1' from the second queen bed in this room. The furniture was a bit dated but the beds were comfortable. Our biggest problem with the room was...

Mona805 Thank you for taking the time to write a review.We have large rooms kept clean and fresh by our super housekeeping team. We upgraded all the rooms with new beds recently with double queens in some rooms. We are required to have low flow shower heads due to the drought conditions that of course now have changed. I am...

The Howard Johnson, Marina, while not in Monterey or Santa Cruz is conveniently located between the two cities. We booked two rooms and I had no difficulties arranging for a downstairs room for my not-so-mobile parents, even though we booked last minute for a holiday weekend. This was just the first example of the kindness and care we received from...

It was the best 3 days of sleep I have experienced from a hotel inn! I noticed they had put in some new Simmons mattresses which made it an even cleaner and comfortable atmosphere for me to stay! The cherry on top of my stay, was their well put together breakfast selection to choose from! I personally enjoyed the hickory...

vnbchong Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You are correct we did install in all of the rooms new mattresses and we did install all new flooring as well.

Riverside, California
Reviewed January 10, 2017

The room was clean, the bed was as expected, no great, but not horrible. Some of the furnishing were falling apart and need to be replaced (ex: the shower curtain was broken and all that was done to repair was to cut new holes, rather that just replace it.) We were in a non-smoking room, so my husband would walk...

Terry B, Owner at Howard Johnson Marina at Monterey Bay, responded to this review

173km2017 I am sorry that your stay with us was blemished by the "smoking" issue. Smoking cigarettes outside of the room is not a problem for our facility but smoking other things outside of the room is a problem for us. I am sorry that this became an issue but we have many other guests to consider as well.
