We only stayed for one night, I wouldn't want to stay longer than that. It is old, but it served its purpose.

For the price I paid my expectations were met. If you are looking for an inexpensive option in the San Diego area then this is an option. The room was clean, but sparse at best.

It was clean, beds were very comfortable. Good rates and centrally located to many attractions. No view of anything, unless you stay on 2nd floor (office side) you can watch planes that have taken off. Has a pool (We didn't use), complimentary breakfast.

The hotel is old, but the rooms are clean. Very friendly desk staff (Dorbi was excellent!). He was helpful, informative, and very pleasant! Wifi is very spotty. Also a good central location! Lots of food options nearby, including Starbucks and In n Out!

Rooms were updated and very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only negative is that the walls were not well insulated. You could hear people through the walls if they were speaking loudly. Attended at wedding at Point Loma. Great location

Great place to stay. Friendly staff. Minor repairs needed such as bathroom door knobs that lock and unlock easily without giggling the handle. Overall I would stay in a Howard Johnson hotel again. Great value, parking is good and free breakfast is a plus. Rooms are decently sized, very spacious.

We had never stayed at a Howard Johnson hotel. We just needed a nights sleep for a 4am departure. The room was perfect, plenty of parking for our giant truck and close to restaurants. It got noisy late from another room but not bad enough that I was up all night. Easy drive to airport parking too.
