HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 January 2017 via mobile

My mother and I stayed here while traveling from different states to see my grandmother. I normally stay in Monterey, but wanted to be closer to family, so an Aunt recommended the HOJO. The neighborhood is actually very quiet, which ended up being a good thing because my second day in town I came down with something for horrible and...

I needed a hotel on short notice for business. Location (proximity to outdoor work locations) was important, amenities were not, because I only need a room to recharge batteries, sleep and shower for a week. This location was inexpensive, and offered a lobby continental breakfast every morning. It was close to restaurants, gas stations, grocery and convenience stores. No pool....

This Howard Johnson is owned by an Indian couple who will not take responsibility for anything. If you don't care that the bed sheets are soiled and everything in the room looks like it came out of the 80's by all means stay at this hotel. I am sure motels are nicer than this place. Breakfast is a joke as...

Good place, they have an elevator and stairs. Acceptable breakfast. Refrigerator is just a refrigerator not a freezer too. No flat screen TV in my room. Fairly quiet place. Walkable to the movie theater.

The Howard Johnson Inn in Salinas, CA has seen better days. It's a basic Motel kind of feel... all the rooms open directly onto the the parking lot or busy street. The rooms are sparse and the furniture needed to be replaced many years ago. The rooms are musty and dank. The town of Salinas isn't doing too well... many...

We got here at 10pm. Check in was quick and I have to say the rooms were so quiet all night long. So easy to sleep.
