Very good 8.0
This hotel was ok for a quick 1 night stay. It’s older and not worth the price but close to Monterey area.

Excellent stay at Howard Johnson's in Salinas Ca.
Very clean room, comfortable bed and very quiet. Enjoyed our stay there, so we'll return again when we visit family in Salinas.

Poor 2.0
Worst experience ever!! I'm not one to nit-pick at every little thing but for the price they charge here, this place is ridiculous. First, my room smelled like old cheese. After a bottle of Febreeze, I managed to sleep and woke up to the dryer in the next room. Apparently, the laundry room is next to mine. Then, the carpet cleaning service had their truck with the machine running right outside my window for 4 hours. Also, the tv doesn't work, the ironing board is broken, there are, what I think are, blood splatters on the bathroom wall and now, kids next door. I asked to move rooms and apparently EVERY room in this hotel is occupied. I don't believe it. The outside is so run down and is need of a paint job that I almost called to try to get another hotel when I arrived.
