    I can't think of a single thing I liked except getting away from there.

    When we checked in they had given the room we booked away to someone else, and expected 3 large adults to spend two nights in one bed.then because none of us drive and had a friend drop us off they desided they were going to charge us 100 dollar deposit. When asked why the manager got very irate and said because he can. About that time a black couple came in and he charged them a 50 dollar deposit just because of the color of their skin. And by the way he gave them the room we were supposed to have had.2 People=2 beds, 3people=1bed. We packed up and left. In all the travelling I have done in my 68 years, I have never been treated that bad. I would not let my worst enemy stay there. We never saw the room but looking at the outside I'm glad we left when we did. I have no idea how a Howard Johnsons could be that bad. All I can say is stay away.

    The bed was comfortable and the room was clean

    Fabulous

    Staff was very polite and helpful. Location is very convenient for access to base.

    Parking lot is a little hard to maneuver. Outside/location area are a bit run down and a bit questionable after dark.

    The location.

    The shower head had mold, the bed was flimsey, the grounds were dirty, the breakfast was avjoke! Over priced, Motel 6 would have been better.

    The hotel room was clean and fresh, it smelled delightful. The location was centrally located near all of festivities that I wanted to attend, Walmart and a nice mall is very close. It is also eight minutes from DeAnza beach.

    Very good

    Inside was very clean and upgraded. Staff was amazing friendly and professional.

    Location is not in the best place. When we Sean the name and then got there realizing where we were , we almost checked out and went to another hotel... Decided to stay because of how cleaned and upgraded the inside was and because we were tired and it was pre booked. If it was someone just comin in hey might leave and choose otherwise because of location . (Not your fault)

    The room was clean and cozy. Location is very close to the downtown.

    The air conditioner in a HEAT mode worked very loudly so it was a challenge to sleep at night.

    The only thing that was a little bit annoying is the walls are to thin you can hear from both sides if you have room that you are in between. It's not nice to hear other people business if you know what I mean. It was to obvious and I needed to get up at 4:00 am the next day.

    Superb

    Location was close to shopping, base, and family. Room had frig and microwave. Room was very modern with granite counter tops, flat screen, and furnishings. The internet service connection was strong.

    The hot tub timer didn't work. Had to get out several times to restart it because the timer wouldn't stay on.

    Good

    Location was great. Only took minutes to get to Coronado, the zoo, and Seaworld.

    Our television was broke and it leaned to the left. There was a big gap on the bottom of the door frame, a lot of sunlight coming thru. Stain on the bed spread. No water pressure. Took awhile for my husband and I too take a shower. The first night was terrible!! At 3 am both rooms on each side of us. Doors slamming. People yelling at each other. Walking back and forth and constant slamming doors. Heard a male voice yell at another male saying " shut the f*ck up or I will make u shut up!!" Heard male talk back. Then we heard a punch. And a woman asked loudly are you ok? Needless to say my husband and I didn't sleep after 3 am and on. I was thankful my two year old wasn't disturbed by the noise. We complained about the issue to the office. They were nice about. We asked for credit or maybe a refund on the night. We stayed from Thursday thru Sunday. They told us they had to contact the Howard Johnson regional manager. They said we will get a call from the manager about it. Never received a phone call!!! We asked each day while we were there, they told us they are waiting to hear back from the manager. So when I checked out on Sunday before 11 am I asked about if the regional manager will be contacting me at all?? The front desk said he did call the front desk and told them to tell me to refund me $20.00. Seriously $20.00??? Wow!! They said well we did what we were supposed to do, we made those occupants leave the hotel. I never have left a review about anything... This was so bad I had to. I was shocked that was all that they would do for me and my husband. What ever happened to good customer service anymore???
