Nala the front desk clerk was AMAZING! She helped out my girls who arrived before we did and made them feel welcomed. 5 stars for her service!! Unfortunately our rooms were pretty run down. Most outlets didn’t work and some did not even have cover plates over them. Beds were fair and housekeeping did a good job. Just not a place you’d walk around without shoes or socks on.

Very friendly staff at check in (Nala). She was great with my kids and offered them these free light up wands that we took with us to Sea World that evening. Such a warm and inviting welcome from her.

The door would not open easily. Had to put in card, hold handle up and then slam the door with my shoulder to force it open. First time, desk clerk had to show us how to slam your body into door to open. A/C never did work, just had to use air fan to circulate room air. Nights were 80 degrees.

Close to public transportation. Since we did not rent a car, that was important. Shuttle to/from airport was also good. Breakfast was sufficient, but the only thing hot was waffles.

Howard Johnson

Pros: Location
Cons: Breakfast
Location: Close to Seaworld, zoo, and Mission Bay/Belmont park. Phil's BBQ is nearby as well.
Very convenient location, but was very disappointed with the breakfast.
