Reviewed 19 November 2013

Asked for a no smoking room but initially given a room with a strong smoke smell. When we complained, we were given a room, still with a smoke smell, but not as strong. Should have refused but had already rejected one room.

Found the next day that the room had bed bugs that had bitten us in many places

Room Tip: Avoid if possible

Reviewed 13 October 2013

I stayed at the Howard Johnson for business in October 2013, for a couple nights.
This hotel is a great, practical solution for business travelers, families on a budget, and even some vacationers who don't want to spend too much on luxury hotels while visiting Monterey Bay.
The location is great, just minutes from downtown Monterey, the marina, and the Aquarium.
There is a great vietnamese restaurant just accross the street from the hotel.

You will need a car if you plan to stay here -all the tourist attractions are close by but still, about 1-5 miles from the hotel.

The rooms are large and clean. There is little luxury, just basics.
There is an iron, coffee maker, safe box, and TV, plus a fridge in each room.

Breakfast is nothing to really look forward to. Just donuts, fruits, cereal, coffee, and "stuff" to fill your bellie...it's a bit sad. Don't stay at this hotel for the breakfast.

I did however appreciate the safety, the friendly management, the cleanliness, and the good location this hotel has to offer. Plus the added in-room features mentioned before.
One thumb up to this hotel, provided you can get a good price for your reservations.
