We enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, cheerful, and the lady in the Lobby was fantastic giving us ideas of things to do and very friendly. Marina State Beach just down the road. Lots of restaurants in the area. Monterey very close by. Would definitely stay again.

V3583XAnancyr Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. Marina beach is one of my favorites for taking photographs of Monterey bay in the morning and at sunset. We offer a home away from home atmosphere with large rooms kept clean and fresh by our hardworking housekeeping team. Thank you for staying with us...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

We spent one night at this hotel and we would have stayed more nights if we had had the time. Very clean and spacious room with a comfortable bed. Good lighting with outlets in the base of the lamps. Because we are constantly on the road, the only negative was the small refrigerator and wasn't big enough to hold our...

Stopped here for one night en route from San Francisco to San Diego. The room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was adequate. The lady at the reception was particularly helpful and let me use the phone to telephone the car hire people to report the fact we had a crack in the windscreen and obtain a replacement vehicle. Can't...

We stopped here back on our way to driving route 1 of the west coast. There was a Walmart near by and a little beach. The staff were lovely and gave us free cookies and bottles of water on arrival. Breakfast was simple but lovely. A lovely stop off with a comfortable bed and great stop next to a petrol...

I decided to stay at the Howard Johnson in Marina for one night because of the overall excellent reviews. I'm sorry to say my experience doesn't match those because of the very uncomfortable, hard bed and noise from cars and trucks outside. If you can deal with these issues and want to spend as little as possible then it's fine...

MichaelG0309 I am sorry that you found the beds too hard. We recently bought all new Simmons Beauty Rest beds for all of the rooms. It is like the story of the three bears and this one is too hard and this one is too soft... We purchased top of the line middle cushion beds. We offer value pricing for...
