The famous Pueblo Grande ruins are only a half mile from the hotel, and if you are in town for Major League Baseball Spring Training, two of the Cactus League Stadiums are very close by.

Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Airport Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score1.0/ 5
DONT STAY HERE!Pictures make this place look not too bad. Lowest rating ever! Half used shampoo/conditioner bottles. Lowest smallest toilet ever. Frayed rug/carpet edges. Loveseat that was probably the cheapest they could have bought 15 years ago. Door would hardly lock. I asked for a sewing kit, the man said wait until someone gets here from management. They have things like that locked up. I asked the day manager, he pulled deck drawer open and there it was. Breakfast, if you call it that, was messy, unswept and the guy in charge could have cared less.
