Very friendly and helpful staff. Helped us find restaurants and attractions in the area. Very attentive and cared about our needs. Room was very clean and well furnished. Would definitely go back. A very good option close to Monterey (5min to downtown).

Basic motel type accommodation, but clean and generally quiet. Very helpful, pleasant reception team in evening and morning. Best motel breakfast we have had on this trip - boiled eggs, little sausages, choice of cereals, breads and bagels. Plus fresh blueberries. Good choice if you don't want to pay over the odds to stay in Monterey, but you want to... More

Wanted two beds. Dude said one bed with sleeper sofa. The sleeper was horrible. No mattress. They gave us extra blankets but it did not help. Do not stay here unless you have enough beds for everyone. Breakfast sucked also. Eat down the street at Coffee Mia. Get a canoli with your breakfast. Best coffee/cafe around.

Darrin F I am sorry that we did not have any rooms with double queens left to accommodate you. The sofa beds are typically used for kids not adults. We do have rollaways but it sounds like we did not communicate well enough. Again I am sorry that your experience with us did not go well. More

The owners and staff were all very friendly and welcoming. They suggested cool things to do and places to see in the area. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the continental breakfast went beyond your average hotel breakfast. We will definitely stay there again.

This Howard Johnson is extremely clean. There has been some money put into the remodel as well as the cleaning staff making sure the room is cleaned. The wood laminate in room and tile in bathroom is great for cleanliness and for people who may have allergies to old residue that accumulates in carpet. The management was competent to have... More

Free wifi is fast with no issues. And excellent customer service. It's a great place to stay in the Monterey area, without being overly expensive. Although, the... More

We opted to stay at this hotel over one in Monterey because of the great reviews. We hesitated because we hadn't had a great experience at a Howard Johnson years ago. We were very pleased with the room. Wood floors and very very clean. The beds were comfortable. Our room had a nice little patio with a table and chairs,... More
