I'm rating this HoJo very good for the efficient, friendly staff; the fact you can make a waffle fresh at the included continental breakfast (which also has the standard fare you'd expect); the good, firm bed; and the low-step-in tub and safety bar that will be useful to me in about 25 years!

A typical Howard Johnson hotel. With free breakfast. Staff, Jessica, Randy and Dave are extremely helpful and anxious to make the stay as pleasant as possible. The park and fly program is very inexpensive and stay away as long as you like is available. Convenient to airport and all amusement areas.

Clean, comfy rooms. Excellent service with a smile from desk clerks to cleaning staff. Secure safe in the closet for valuables. Fast, dependable WiFi. Good laundry room. Located just a few blocks from trolley station and bus depot. Shuttle provided to/from MCRD and airport. Reasonable rates. Breakfast was okay but not great....BUT Starbuck's and Einstein's Bagels across the street. Overall,...
