Our room was clean but run down with part of the wall paper border torn off of the wall. The bedspread had a stain on it that looked like grease. There wasn't a refg. or mic in our room just a coffee pot. They did serve a nice breakfast variety.

When we arrived at our hotel room, we opened the door to a room that was between 80 and 90 degrees. The AC had obviously not been on for at least a day or two - it was very stuffy in addition to being hot. The AC unit was in the front room of the Suite, there was no AC in the bedroom. We turned on the AC about 5pm, and it didn't get cool enough in the bedroom until about 3 am. It would have been nice if the staff had turned on a bit of cool air starting at check in time (3PM) or sooner. I understand that Howard Johnson is trying to save money and be "green" but I'm pretty sure they lost all those savings with our AC running on high for 12 hours straight trying to catch up. Wireless signal was very weak and couldn't get any signal in the bedroom.

Friendly staff, clean hotel. Pool was very cold but the spa was nice. The complimentary breakfast was decent. Some parts of our dbl queen room had been updated, while others were dated. Only drawback was the noise level from hallway and adjacent rooms.

I found this hotel to be fantastic! The staff was very kind and helpful, the computers were down when we arrived and I thought there would be an issue but it was one of the easiest check ins I have experienced. The hotel appeared to be clean and well maintained. There were some areas that you could tell were older and perhaps in need of a little care. The pool area was enjoyed for several hours by my boys, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok, I have had better but not having breakfast would be worse! I would definately recommend this hotel, great stay for a great price!

"STURGIS 2014"
06/17/15 dardnellf Everett, Washington
Howard Johnson was not accessible like they said they were.(accessible reservations made almost a year in advance) The bathroom was not accessible and not enough room to move around at all . I couldn't even get my power chair through the room door. The management did give me A break on the room rate that was greatly appreciated but that still didn't make it accessible. I will be staying elsewhere in aug. 2015.

"Hotel Closed"
08/21/14 Mandylou90
My boyfriend and I had a reservation for this hotel for 3 nights that we booked approximately 2 months ago. We arrived this afternoon to find a handwritten note on all the doors that stated that the hotel was closed until further notice. We received no notice or phone call informing us of this prior to us showing up to check in. We were able to find accommodations for tonight but not the other two nights. This is terrible service. I am glad I did not get the opportunity to stay at this hotel if this is how guests are treated. We will no longer be booking hotels with this chain of hotels.

"Non-existent customer service"
08/21/14 thomfre Haugesund, Norway
Had a room booked here, and everything was okay when we checked a week ago. When we arrived today, the entire hotel was dark and empty - a note on the door said the hotel was closed until further notice, and no more information to guests. I would expected them to contact the guests that had already prepaid, or at least provided some more information on the note. Had to go elsewhere to sleep.
Overall Rating
"UNPROFESSIONALISM AT ITS BEST"
08/16/14 Shannon G Lawton, Oklahoma, United States
First, pool was like an ice cube, room smelled stale, room was not cleaned, only two room alarms went off during fire. Jared is very unprofessional, referred to fire incident as SOB STORY, he was no where to be found when we were allowed to retrieve items. He did not contact the other hotel we were moved to for restitution for the next two days. He then said it was up to US to file against OUR OWN insurance company to replace our items and they would bill him (shady). Room did not get cleaned daily, had to go ask for new towels, during fire, only two room alarms went off. I saw someone pull fire alarm and it did not sound, residents were telling each other to evacuate, staff was oblivious to the fact a fire was in that wing and evacuation was not organized at all. My 8 month old grandson was with me and thank God he is on a schedule or we would have been asleep during it and he and his sister and my daughter could have been harmed by the smoke, which although the newspaper said it was minimal, it was severe!!!!!! the entire room was black. Jared, the owner/manager has been acting very unprofessional, ignoring calls and hanging up on us. The hotel was actually dirty and worn. My reservation could not even be found initially and he charged my card for the two days I did NOT even stay there because we had to move. .

"Not up to date"
08/12/14 Benjamin H Spearfish
The hotel was dated. Our room had a smell. The bathroom was in bad shape. The tub had a huge crack that looked like it leaked. The whole bathroom needed repairs. One good thing. The hotel staff was was very friendly and moved us to a different room. The down side. That room wasn't much better. I had stayed at a different HoJo before and it wasn't much better and gave it another chance. But after that room. I won't be staying in a HoJo any longer.

"Good location, motorcycle friendly"
08/11/14 JoyMarieJ Langley City, Canada
Not the fanciest place or the newest but not much to choose from in town. The town is cute and has a small local street fair on Friday nights. The bed sucked was cheap and thin and wiggley and hard. Could use some updating for sure.

This hotel is aging and in need of updating but it was pretty clean and worked fine for us. The location is very nice. It's attached to a restaurant and within walking distance to the gas station/convenience store. Pool and hot tub area were nice. We had a leaky sink which was fixed immediately.
