My stay at Howard Johnson's

The hotel is located near Sea World and the San Diego beeches. This was perfect for me. The hotel is average but the room was clean and the staff were friendly. If you seek a cheaper room in a location near to San Diego beeches and the downtown area, then this is a good option. D

It's inexpensive for a reason

The staff was friendly but the room had old stains and a lot of wear and tear on the furniture. We were glad to have a working air conditioner in the room. The hotel is older and run down but it was inexpensive so it is hard to complain too much; you get what you pay for.

last minute family getaway

Location was centrally convenient. We visited Sunset Cliffs, Coronado by ferry, and the Cabrillo National Monument. They did not provide any wash cloths and not enough bath towels

Sunset Cliffs has nice ocean views. Cabrillo National Monument visit before 4:00 p.m. Coronado has miles of beaches. Use a good sunscreen.

Do not stay here

This was a horrible place to stay. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Room was not clean, it was a non-smoking room and reaked of smoke, I saw a rat near the office. It was just gross!
