Howard Johnson is out to put a little fun in Mondays this fall. Start your stay on the first workday of the week and receive 35% off the room price for the length of your stay.
The deal: HoJo Happy Monday takes 35% off midweek stays at 370 hotels in the U.S. and Canada. (There are 35 sites in California, according to the chain's website.) Here's how it works: Follow the link to the registration page and enter your email address. You'll be sent a code to use when making a reservation. An added plus: Most sites come with free breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
When: The offer is good for stays reserved by Dec. 23 and completed by Dec. 27, based on availability.
Tested: I found availability for Nov. 18 (Monday) to Nov. 20 at the Howard Johnson Inn Santa Cruz after registering and using the code I received via email. The room for two costs $58.50 instead of $90 a night, excluding tax, which is practically two nights for the price of one.
