Pros: Convenient to and from airport. Shuttles run every 1/2 hour from hotel and are pretty timely
Great Customer Service. All personnel are friendly, accommodating and professional
Free Continental Breakfast. Bagels, Bread, Cold cereal and Oatmeal, muffins, hard boiled eggs. (would not claim deluxe breakfast as sign states)
Overall rooms clean. Beds comfortable

Cons: Property in need of updates. Bathroom tiles broken. Bath tub faucet leaked constantly
Air conditioner did not work properly. Room stuffy and some odor maybe from previous pet
Breakfast area too small. Seating capacity of 6.
Refrigerator was not cold.

For our needs, hotel was priced for what you receive.

I really have no complaints about my stay at this hotel. I mean, sure, it's not the Westin, but we all know that in hotels, you get what you pay for, and in the case of the Howard Johnson, we got more. With convenient, free, and easy shuttles to and from the airport, and a small but extensive continental breakfast, what more could one ask for? The room was clean and the service was excellent. Everyone who manned the front desk, specifically Anjuli, was friendly and helpful. Overall, it was an excellent stay at a hotel with good value.

Room Tip: My only complaint about my stay at the Howard Johnson was that the wake-up call did not work any of...

I arrived early and needed to store my oversized luggage prior to going into the city for meetings throughout the day - and also needed to store bags after my morning checkout until my evening flight out of SFO. Anjuli at the front desk was more than accommodating. Convenient location with free airport shuttle

We stayed at the Howards Johnson as we were flying out early the next morning from San Francisco airport so it made it easier for us. We left our hire car back shortly after we arrived and were able to get the shuttle bus back to the motel. The girl in reception was very helpful and printed out some documents for us that we needed for our flight.
The only thing that annoyed us was that we ordered food from one of the brochures in the room and when it arrived the delivery guy told us he had no change and expected us to give what was left to him as a tip. Because we were tired and he caught us unaware we left him keep it but in hindsight probably shouldn't because he ended up with a very substantial tip and with his attitude he definitely didn't deserve it! And when I looked at the bill we were also overcharged so we were even more angry with giving such a large tip! So be careful if ordering anything!

I've stayed for 3 nights at this hotel while attending a conference.
The hotel is ok considering the price but the service was outstanding.
The staff is very nice and friendly and make you feel like home.
I have to mention Anjuli who was always there and provided an excellent service at all time, going the extra mile and taking care of everything.
When I arrived I realized that I forgot my shaver and deodorant at home, it was really late and she solve everything in 2'.
I would definitively recommend the hotel and the service.
