Although we received a confirmation number, we left it on the desk at home. After several discussions back and forth, he finally...

The bathroom shower/bathtub had some kind of dirt around of edges of the tub. There was a used bar of soap still in the bath tub area as well as an open container...

I am in Monterey every year for the concourse de elegance car show and my preference to stay is always the Howard Johnson in Seaside. The rooms are very clean and the whole grounds well kept. Suresh the owner is always friendly and wants to know if everything is OK. I would highly recommend this Hojo.

“I am not sure there ARE any good rooms here.”
  • We had 2 towels for a room that sleeps 5. Both were stained. Gross.
