Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Express Inn Monterey Seaside

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Unpleasant"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The chairs in the room were stained. There was only enough coffee for one person. No body lotion was provided. It sounded like there were elephants in the room above us. The desk clerk was not helpful in identifying good restaurants in the area. Our friend's shower head was about to come off and their toilet didn't flush. The hair dryer in our room didn't work. All-in-all I won't stay there again.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Our trip to Pittsburgh, including the stay at the Days Inn, was excellent. I'm very glad I found your web site and will both be using it in the future, and recommending to colleagues. The responsiveness of the site, and its ability to find us lodging even in the midst of the US Open, was wonderful. Independently, the best another teacher could do initially was secure a hotel about an hour away from downtown. She was also very pleased with our final accommodations." S.K. - Western New York
