Howard Johnson Express Inn Monterey Seaside
Ranked #10 of 13 Hotels in Seaside
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

I needed a place to stay for one night and didn't see spending over $200 for a Hilton, etc. so I looked for a name that I've heard before since there were a lot of random motels in that area. I found the Howard Johnson and although I have never stayed at one, I have seen them around and know they are a chain, so what could go wrong? Well I will let the pictures of the talking, I didn't expect the Ritz Carlton for $148 a night, but I didn't expect the filth that my room had. I went and bought wet ones to wipe down things I needed but didn't even take a shower because the shower head was disgusting. I am also writing an email to Howard Johnson HQ about this as well. As you can see from my other posts, I certainly give credit when credit is do, but this needs to be pointed out. Please see pictures.

Mr. Suresh Patel and staff provided customer service of excellence! Everyone from the front desk to house keeping were professional and courteous. When asked of ANYTHING no was not their option.

Everything was favorable. I could sleep very well. There is room for improvement on accomodating me & other guests in the future with "true" NON-SMOKING AREA when requesting a NON-SMOKING ROOM. I DID GET NON SMOKING ON MY SECOND FLOOR. However, the hotel room directly below me did have guests who's cigarette smoked floated up. And to TOP IT OFF . . . I could smell the Pot making it's way through my window, even when I had closed the window.
The room was clean, plenty of towels, VERY SWEET housekeepers,
excellent work ethic. Rooms always tidy
Thanks
