“The Manager, Nick Patel could not have been nicer and more helpful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2011

Having booked in for one night with my husband and my sister who was visiting from England, my husband had an unexpected medical emergency involving a 5 day stay in the Community Hospital. Mr. Patel was extremely pleasant and helpful during our extended stay . We had a 2bedroom "suite" . The location of the property is in a residential district 5 minutes from Asilomar Beach - very quiet and with an adequate continental breakfast. Our only problem was the T.V. - rather difficult to operate though DVD option was working. Also it was a little difficult to find!

The Howard Johnson Inn and Suites Monterey Pacific Grove is a warm and cozy rustic Inn in the midst of the Monterey Pines on the Pacific Grove penninsula. The units are quiet and roomy and the upstairs units have cathedral ceilings and balconies overlooking the woodsy area. They provide a free breakfast of toast, waffles, cereal, fruit juices, milk, coffee and hot chocolate which gives you a good start to your sightseeing day. The larger units have refrigerators, sinks, dishes, silverware, and microwave ovens so you can prepare you own meals and snacks. We stay there regularly when we are visiting family in the Monterey area. I love the fact that they have non-skid finishes on the tub/shower units. The only down-side is that their towels are too small. Also, you will need a car as there is no public transportation to any local attractions.

The parking is free and they have free Internet access for your own computer.

I have stayed at this hotel the past 2 years. The hotel is decent - nothing special. However, the location is great if you are attending a golf tournament at Pebble Beach. I'm writing this review because I am experiencing a major problem with my current reservation. I booked on the hotel's website. The hotel contracts with an online reservation company. It has been impossible to modify the reservation. The hotel customer service is terrible and the representative claims that I must contact the booking engine vendor. The vendor does not answer the phone or return emails. My advice is to call the hotel directly if you want to reserve here.

We decided on the Howard Johnson Inn due to it being one of the very few properties in Monterey that offer two bedroom suites at a reasonable rate. Since we had two teenagers with us, booking two rooms at a standard hotel was a lot more money. This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, close to major sights. Rooms have small kitchenettes, which is a real plus. They also offer free continental breakfast, which was very good. All in all, this is a nice place to stay for a few days at a reasonable rate.

I booked this place online from U.K. Great place, quiet cozy place, surrounded by pine trees. Walking distance to beach. Rooms are specious with high celling, makes you feel like you are at home. Very helpful staff. If we are in this area again, we will come bcak and stay here.
