“Canadian business trip”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Building looked old and scary when we first arrived at night. One of my staff on this trip complained about foul odour in her room. The check in was rather painful, as we needed to pay for all three rooms in advance. However, the staff were friendly, and all of us agreed that the beds were comfortable, and we were able to get good sleep.

Parking was a challenge left for the guests to figure out.
Others were noisy Saturday evening, and it seemed management was oblivious.
The nearby earthquake left little confidence in survivability if one slightly bigger happened moments later.
That being said...
My Jacuzzi room was the bomb! Large, clean, adequately stocked, and relatively inexpensive. The carpet could use some extreme help or replacement. Luckily, I always travel with a heavy duty 6 foot extension cord or the floor lamp near the chair and ottoman would not have worked as it was not plugged in, and there was no wall outlet nearby. Curious. Oh well.
I kind of liked the quirky floor plan layout of the room; where the real bath/kitchen/closet area was opposite the hot tube area and the bedroom area was in between.
I liked the demeanor of the guy who checked me in. Like, if you could mix James Bond with Alfred (Batman's butler) you'd have the check in guy. Older, but not old. Dignified, but not arrogant. Worldly, but down to earth. You get what I'm sayin'?
Housekeeping is the best. Dependable and thorough. Of course, with old places there's only so much those hard-working ladies can do. I particularly liked the fact that no matter how late I left for the day, my room was clean when I came back.
The tv setup was great, the furnishings adequate. The bed comfortable with four pillows. There were windows that could be (and were) left open by guests as needed/wanted. And the air conditioner worked well.
The Jacuzzi was way big and deep. It took forever to fill it. But it worked rather well for such an old thing.
I will definitely be staying again, soon.

Room Tip: Always try to park when most spots are empty so that you have room to back into the parking space. I...

I have been having to stay in motels for the past 45 days and budget is a factor for me. I had stayed in previous motels where I was paying the same amount of money and wallpaper was peeling off the walls and found paint floating in bath water. The property managers seemed to not even care about their guests,their property and the service they provided.
This is not the case at Howard Johnsons Express Inn & Suites in Orange, CA. The rooms are efficiently cleaned, nice decor, supplied properly with towels and with microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. The property hosts are very nice and accommodating to our needs. They put forth every effort to make your stay a pleasant one. They have fresh coffee during the day, and a laundry room on site, if needed. It is $2.00 for wash and $1.00 for dry.
I recommend any family, business or personal traveler to stay at this property since it carries all the necessary requirements for a quality, economic, good rest and pleasant stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are furnished nicely
