"For the price..."
The hallway (of a non-smoking floor) REEKED of cigarette smoke and cleaner, but the room was pleasant enough (if, again, a bit strong on the cleaner smell). The mattress was a slightly-padded board, and the oddly-shaped/sized pillows were confusing. The bathroom exhaust fan did not work, or there was none. The fridge, microwave, bathroom, carpet, linens, […] bed, etc. were all very CLEAN and WELL-KEPT. The staff were all COURTEOUS and HELPFUL. The people hanging out in the parking lot were a bit unnerving, but all in all, even in a main-floor room I felt quite safe with the door lock, deadbolt and flip-lock. BREAKFAST was small in variety, but big on taste. The biscuits & gravy were wonderful, as were the belgian waffles. The cereal, toast, and bagel selection looked just as inviting, and everything was kept at optimum temperatures!! The dining area was kept CLEAN and WELL-STOCKED. I've been in much more expensive/higher-rated hotels where the wallpaper was peeling, things were dirty, or belongings went missing. I'd prefer to spend less and be happier. I will easily choose this hotel again the next time I'm visiting my family!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Breakfast was good and the pool was nice clean and well kept. fitness room was small (just a former hoteroom with a treadmill, bike, & elliptical machine but the equipment was decents well. i would stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
ALL THE KEYED CARD ENTRY WAS DIFFICULT, IT TOOK MORE THAN ONE TRIES TO GET INTO YOUR ROOM, AND THE BACK DOOR ONLY WORKED SOME OF THE TIME.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not VERY SATISFIED"
The bedding was dirty, front desk not very accommodating, air conditioning not working properly, door keys don't always work. OVER ALL stay was miserable. WOULD NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Easy check in and out. had a hard time accessing the door to our roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, close to grocery store"
We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, the TV worked, and the bed was comfortable. I liked that Patricia's grocery store was right across the side street so that we could run over to get snacks or necessities any time. The breakfast wasn't fancy, but included oatmeal, toast, bagels, waffles, cereal, and muffins. There was also fruit juice, coffee/tea, […] and apples and oranges.

"Old but clean"
the breakfast was hard to find, it was a standard hotel buffet. The room had new bedding, but the bathroom was older. The room was old, but clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Howard Johnson Columbia Missouri"
The hotel is on a frontage road off of Highway 63 and it was a little confusing figuring out how to get there. The room itself was clean but the hallways and stairways were grimy. The bed was comfortable and there were two air conditioning units in the room which made it nice and cool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good - Nothing special"
Room didnt have any toilet paper, iron didnt work, smelled musty and old but was clean. Breakfast was free but not much cleaning of mess during breakfast time so area was pretty bad at the end. Get what you pay for. There for college visit so really needed just someplace to sleep. Will return. Stayed in much worse for much more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enough for 1 or 2 nights"
The rooms had a strong smoke smell, even when I asked for non-smoking rooms. I had to be moved from my first room for some inconviniences and every single day the cleaning service was not exactly the best. Clean and comfortable enough for 1 or 2 nights, but I wouldn't stay again for 6 days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value delivered"
Columbia is busy year round and finding a room that meets the needs of a traveler without breaking the budget is a plus. Easy access to the major routes in and out of town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a great place to stay"
Clean, quiet, and comfortable! I would definitely stay here again. Nice breakfast and service at the front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older facility but great price for the location/quality. Second year in a row staying at this facility in our annual trek to Kansas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"calvary horse show"
awesome staff very friendly,service good,breakfast bar,awesome swimming pool very kid friendly only draw back was no elevator when people are using the motel during horse shows we have alot of suit cases and clothes bags and an elevator would had been real handyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great bang for the buck!"
Very nice welcome, clean and close to our art show.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What is that smell?"
Entire hotel has a musty old cigarette smell, which managed to attach itself to our clothes and luguage. Lock not working. Some rooms had holes in the doors. Pictures on website of hotel room in no way represents the current reality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for retirees"
Service was excellent; breakfast was good; hotel was convenient to my planned activities; no complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here!!"
The non-smoking room reeked of smoke due to smokers only a few rooms down, and the hall carpets were dirty. When we got there, the TV didn't work, there were stains on the carpet and the chair, the room smelled like urine and we couldn't adjust the air conditioning. It was a miserable night's stay on very hard beds with no blanket besides the bedspread. […] In addition, the breakfast was minimal, to say the least. There was no fruit, the coffee was watered down, and not all of the tables were clean at 8:00 in the morning. I expect to travel this route again, but I will never stay here again.

The king size bed was awesome-sadly it did not make up for the dirty & smelly condition of the rest of the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Low cost, low frills."
I have stayed here twice, and it has been renovated since my stay 3 years ago which has improved it. If you are looking for a low-cost overnight stay with little frills, this place is fine. All I needed was a bed overnight and a shower in the morning, so it worked for me. However, there is a bit of a residual smell as smoking has been allowed in the […] hotel. Also, my room was not cleaned all that well; there was a dried used washcloth hanging in the shower behind the curtain...had the maid moved the curtain while cleaning it should have been seen. The "gym" is a hotel room with an exercise bike an a treadmill that look like they have not been cleaned in months. Again, if all you need is a bed to sleep in it's a good cheap hotel.

"Nothing to complain"
My stay there was nice , big room, clean , comfortable bed, bit old but well maintained , staff was nice with a reasonable priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for"
The staff was nice but there was an odor about the place that was obvious the minute I walked into the lobby. And it was worse when I got to my room. The room was clean but the odor......bad. Won't stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Comfortable and reasonable price. Although the hotel could use a modern upgrade, it was clean and nice. I would stay at this hotel qgain.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had a first floor non-smoking room with a king size bed. Everything was very clean and I thought the room size was nice for the price I paid. Overall I was pleased and would stay again. The shower worked well and had plenty of hot water. The drain was a little slow but not a problem for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best of Lower Price Hotels in CoMo"
Over the years, I have stayed at almost every hotel in Columbia. In general, it is the ABSOLUTE BEST of the hotels in that price range. I plan to make that my new lower-budget answer to Columbia.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel near highway"
Everything went very well. Everything we needed was provided. Easy access. Easy parking. Good breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"See you again soon!"
I frequent this location quite often when visiting my hometown. I LOVE the staff and the way they welcome me at each stay. Everything was absolutely perfect! I'm able to always get the room I want, there's always a great value, multiple amenities are nearby, and direct access to the highways. Thank-you all again for your wonderful hospitality!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice stay, bed was very comfortable, the room was a bit dated, but was clean. Had a continental breakfast which was good, and the service was great. Overall great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent motel for the money"
Good price discounted for 3 nights $50/night, clean room and bed sheets have refrigerator, microwave oven,clothes iron and board also hair dryer, only thing i would recommend add more variety to complimentary breakfast, its basic could add yogurt, sweet rolls and bananas. I do like the machine that allow us make fresh hot waffles and the orange juice […] and coffees was good too. The staff i meet was friendly. I would stay again if i am in the area. If it wasn't for the basic breakfast the rating would be a 5 instead of 4 . Hope this information helps. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ewww Room and hallway reeked of cigarette smoke"
We arrived late in the evening, drove around back to get into the hotel but the room keys wouldn't open up the entrance. Walked around to the front, got the hotel manager on duty and he came up to our room to help, which was nice, but the keys didn't work again, even he had trouble using them. Finally got into the room and it smelled horrible for a […] non-smoking room. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet, but thats all I can say. Breakfast was fine.

"The Price is RIght"
I have stayed here twice and both times price is a key factor. I don't spend a lot of time in any hotel when I'm traveling but rather use it as a place to sleep and shower. This one is prefect for my needs. Added features include a very nice complimentary breakfast, indoor corridors, and a very pleasant staff. There were some minor problems with the […] key to my room not working and glitches with an old tv, the staff was quick to fix these issues. The one negative I did encounter was slow internet connection. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed her numerous times and it was pleasant. This time the room smelled stale and it was dirty. Dirty bedding, food found in the room, dirty bathroom, air conditioning smelled old and the entrance smelled also. Very disappointingGenuine Expedia guest review
The Howard Johnson was a fine hotel at a great price point. For the amount you pay for a night you are getting exactly what you'd expect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a secure place to stay"
The side door was propped open at night by someone that mopped the floor, I noticed it because the hallway was freezing. Any one could enter and exit the hotel unseen. Night person at front desk had horrible attitude.@Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think we got a bargain. The main thing I appreciate is free wireless high-speed Internet. I had to upload files on deadline and had no problem. It was also not a problem logging on with more than one computer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean, but bathroom did not have exaust fan which clouded up everything. Breakfast was very lacking, did not get any breakfast since there was not much to choose from and what was suppose to be available was not replenished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly & Professional Staff"
The owners and the staff were first class. Very service oriented and very friendly. I will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick Overnight in Columbia, MO"
This hotel was selected for its convenient location off I-70, it's proximity between KC and St Louis, free parking, complementary breakfast and, of course, price. This hotel property is aging and there appeared to be much needing attention. Hotel staff was very good, friendly/responsive and I believe they are doing the best they can with very limited […] resources. Breakfast food selection was meager as compared to competitor properties. All I can say is that our 1-night stay was "just OK" - all things considered. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth what we paid"
We stayed for a week end. The hotel staff barely spoke english and the room smelled. The bathroom was worn out and dated. The walls are paper thin. The location however was great. It is close to everything and a safe neighborhood. The breakfast is not good at all. The hot part they offered was rubbery waffels and the cold was cerial and powdered milk. […] This was not worth getting out of bed for at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"They Did it again!"
I've been staying at this location for the past couple of years now and seen it go through many ups and downs. The owner has done a phenomenal job of renovating and turning the hotel into a wonderful place. I think the staff is absolutely AMAZING and makes a guest feel welcomed. This time I think my toilet was leaking, but since I was on the go so much […] I didn't report it. The location is convenient for me because there are several choices for food and immediate access to highways and other major venues as well. I will continue to stay at the Howard Johnson because I feel more like family versus a guest passing through! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would not stay there again!"
You could see a pack of gum, paperclips and other stuff under the night stand. Old lottery tickets in the drawer with the phone book. A dirty wash cloth was hanging over the shower head in the bathroom. The shower head was half stopped up. Very loud people in the other room next to mine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient location and staff were courteous. Found a dirty washcloth in my bathroom on the first night (Yuck!) Have stayed there in the past and not had any issues. Adequate accomodations for a short trip and the price. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family member had surgery"
I had a problem with the TV but the manager fixed it promptly. I especially enjoyed the above average shower head fixture as most hotels in this price range are usually just plain. The decor was average but very comfortable and my room was very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very comfortable and the hotel was great in assisting with the few extras we needed (baby bed, silverware, etc.). The breakfast was very good, too! Would definitely recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is great with easy access to places to eat , shop, and the interstate. Seems to be an older structure, but it is nicely kept up. The room bathroom were very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The key card swipe mechanism did not always work each time. The staff was cordial and friendly. The morning breakfast was very sufficient with […] lots a good choices. Overall, this was a very comfortable stay, and I would select this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent crash pad for a quick stay"
Overall Great - staff was available, room was clean (if not a little overwhelming on the deodorizer), location was easy to find and navigate to. As many people noted, the decor and hotel are a little worn and dated, and the deodorizer scent permeated coffee, water, and whatever else was consumed from the provided cups. Area was mostly hotels and fast […] food restaurants - no sense of danger, but not a swanky area (regarding neighborhood). For the price I'd stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
