I've been visiting the area frequently to visit my daughter while she attends CSUMB, and I usually look for the cheapest places, since really, all I need is a place to sleep.. Having tried a number of 'economy' places, I regret not choosing HoJo Marina earlier! This place has been the cleanest/most comfortable, and convenient stays I have had. The...

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are clean, large and very comfortable. The king size bed and the pillows give you a good night sleep. Mini fridge and microwave make bringing leftovers from dinners out easy. The staff in the office is very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend a stay if in Marina.

Stayed here last spring, not bad. Tried again and pretty disappointed with cleanliness. The floors are laminate, which should be much easier to keep clean. Noticed they were kinda dull looking and looked unswepted. Ran a wet washcloth over and came back very dirty. I let them know and they switched our room. But the next one had a strong...

Melinda T I am sorry that you found our rooms not satisfactory. Our housekeeping team always works hard to keep our rooms clean but we did have a couple of days with very heavy winds that may have undone their efforts. Again I am sorry that you had a bad experience with us.
