I stayed at the Howard Johnson Vallejo while on business. Overall my stay was very pleasant. The room was spacious and clean, I appreciate the amenities provided. pull out couch, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer along with toiletries. The Continental breakfast was very good, I was pleasantly surprised they had hot pancakes and waffles which is a big step up from the standard muffin or bagel Continental breakfasts usually offer. Fortunately, I was able to lay out by the pool, read a good book and go for a brief swim it was very quiet and relaxing. The hotel staff was very warm and inviting and were very helpful in making my stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to a friend and I will stay there again during future business and leisure trips.

This is our 2nd time and I picked it because it was cheaper than the Comfort Inn & Suites up the street (which we have also stayed at). Never again. The "continental breakfast" is a joke and worse, it is served in their restaurant. You get one choice of coffee, one choice of juice, stale cubed pieces of muffin or coffee cake, hot waffles and hard boiled eggs. The egg was good. Dingy looking. Stay at Comfort Suites, pay the $10 difference and get a clean breakfast room with 3 cereal choices, 3 juice choices, milk, coffee, toast - real toast. We won't stay there again.

The first room we were put in smelled nasty, the wallpaper was peeling off everywhere, the ceiling looked like it was caving in and the a/c wasnt working. So they moved us to another room. This room seemed to be bareable so we stayed. The next morning we went to head to six flags, and noticed the door did NOT lock!!! This is obviously not a good neighborhood and we were NOT going to leave our stuff in there all day unsecured. And of course there were no rooms cleaned yet so we packed up all our stuff and left it at the front desk. Our only request was that our next room not be at the building in front of the street because the highway noice would keep my kids awake. And of course we get back from six flags at night and they assigned us in that building. We ended up asking for a refund for that 2nd night and went home. We had plans for the next day but didnt get to enjoy them because this hotel was so bad!!! ALSO, they advertise a complimentary shuttle to six flags. but it is NOT! Its $5 a person!!! and they didnt tell us we had to reserve what time we want to go!! So by the time we found that out of course we were at the end of the list....OH!! and the CRAZIEST thing. They give you a paper with your room # on it. They must use scrap paper because on the back of mine was a reservation for another person and it has his credit card # and exp. on it!!!!!! Luckily we are good honest people who blacked it out tore it up and threw it away!!! I will be checking my credit card statement daily now because of this....

Thank you for taking time to write a review. We have a couple questions regarding your post. We would like to know, for our reference, the number of the first room you were put into and the number of the room that did not lock. Where was a complimentary shuttle advertised? We only offer a complimentary shuttle to people who book a package. Our shuttle is otherwise $5 per room, not person. Reservations for the shuttle are done at check in if you indicate you require that service; however our shuttle driver is always on-duty during the hours of shuttle operation.

Other than the sleeve we give our guests upon check-in, the only other paper we give is either a voucher for the continental breakfast or a coupon for Danny's Kitchen. Anything printed through our property management system automatically has the CC blacked out. At most if we did (which we don't) recycle guest receipts or reservations there is no way for a guest to have another's CC information.

We stayed two nights at this chain hotel and found it to be very average. The breakfast wasn't particularly nice. Cold pancakes and waffels and a selection of cakes. Too much sugar for first thing in the monring. The pool was always crowded with kids splashing about and making lots of noise, Luckily we didn't hang out here much or the noise would have been annoying. Our room was a bit smelly and even when we switched, it was just as bad. The fridge was so noisy I have to turn it off and the bathroom had a tub but no plug so impossibly to have a bath. I wouldn't recommend it but it worked for us as it was releatively easy to explore Napa from here and we couldn't afford the Napa hotel price tags!

There was absolutly no reports of feces in our pool during the duration of this "guests" stay. We highly suspect this is a review made by a competitor damning our property by making a horrible claim. Our pool is cleaned every morning by housekeeping and monitored throught the day. No reports what-so-ever were made about this. We also have not had any refuse laying around our property like described. At most we have a few desks which are in secluded corners of the property.

This stay was awful. The first room we were put in was filthy....broken light bulbs on the balcony, used perfume/cologne bottle on the floor, it had not been vaccumed. We were moved to a different room that was cleaner. The parking lot next to our door was filthy - old mattresses leaning on the building, trash, looked like there should be prostitutes hanging out after dark. We were offered free continental breakfast at the restaruant attached to the hotel. The food was cold, there was only pancakes and cereal - no meat, no eggs. The waitress/host seemed bothered by the continental breakfast. The second night we were there a transient welcomed me in the parking lot. He was paranoid and incredibly drunk. He scared my 7 year old and hid in the bushes. Oh, and to top it all off.....someone went poo in the swimming pool while we were there.

Here at the Howard Johnson in Vallejo we take our guest concerns very seriously. We would first like to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. During your stay some of our rooms were undergoing a remodling, which may be why there may have been articles of furniture around our facility.

Our breakfast follows the definition of a continental breakfast in that we offer our guests assorted in-house cake like muffins, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juice, cereal and milk among other things. We also like to provide guests with made-to-order waffles and pancakes on the weekends.

Unfortunatly, throughout the weekend, we were not notified of any fecal matter in our swimming facilities and housekeeping made no report of it during their morning cleaning. If there was a report of fecal matter in our facilities appropriate measure would be taken. We invite you to return to our facilities in the future and help us improve upon our guest experience.
