"Close to lots of food stops"
For an overnight-someplace-to-lay-my-head, it was comfortable and clean. It was close to where our activity was being held. There were plenty of fast food and nicer restaurants within a couple of miles if not just across the street. (We drove the extra mile to eat at a place we really like but don't have locally.) Even though it was after Labor Day, […] the outdoor pool was still open due to the warmer weather. Breakfast was nice and hot, but a little disappointing since the night clerk had mentioned bacon (mmm...bacon), but that wasn't actually there, just the standard waffles, biscuits and gravy, and cereal choices. However, I was bummed to realize that if I hadn't booked through the internet, I could have gotten a discount on the price! Both AAA and military rates were available, but the convenience of KNOWING I had a room booked after driving that far was more important at the time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fine place to stay at a very attractive price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was hard getting the key to work in the door, the room smelt awful! The walls had tears in them, the bathroom was tinyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exactly what we were looking for"
Needed a cheap but clean and convenient place to stay on the drive from KC to STL. This was perfect. Breakfast was top notch. Great deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth the $"
Hotel was in general disrepair. Staff was friendly enough. definitely not worth what we paid! Will never stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was a little musty smelling but not something you couldn't stand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic old hotel. Only stay to save money."
Older hotel that needs tlc. Door lock system didn't work. Continental breakfast was minimal. No vent fan in bathroom so after showers it stays wet/damp for hours.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and comfortable"
Stayed here for one night on a football weekend. We had clean, comfortable beds to lay out heads on, good pressure in the shower, and a great rate. The place is somewhat dated, but it seems well kept-up. I've certainly paid much more for much less desirable rooms--particularly in college towns on game weekend. I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean hotel would stay there again"
Very good everything was great would stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Showing signs of improvement"
Very comfortable room, everything in order and working. Carpet is grungy and needs replaced, pretty much throughout the hotel. no exhaust fan in bathroom, remember your spray! great location. We will stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review

"On the way"
OK place to stay for the night. We were on our way from Denver to St. Louis. Well worn, but clean. Affordable. Breakfast was totally lacking though. Not much of a choice. I've stayed at cheaper places with better breakfasts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
wanted a clean bed for a cheap price. Got that + pool + breakfast. Will go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Continental breakfast a little lacking"
Would like to have some protein options for breakfast. Nothing but starches- only protein were packages of cream cheese or peanut butter. Rooms are fine but hotel is quite old. Outdoor pool was nice in a not day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will stay again."
The room was comfortable. We had the handicap room. Beds was clean, bathroom was clean. The next morning they served a very nice breakfast of cereal, biscuits and country gravy, pancakes, and fruit. The only negative thing was the carpets were dirty and smelled of smoke through out the motel. They are just old and need to be replaced or cleaned. Also […] it was noisy with doors popping all the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One night at the HOJO"
We stayed at a different hotel on our drive out to Colorado an refused to stay there ever again. The Howard Johnson was a much better place to say and even cost less! Friendly staff, clean room, clean pool (although a little cold for us), and great breakfast selection. We will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Well the gentlemen who check me in was very friendly and explain everything ! staff friendly and free breakfast was good also ! when I visit again I will choose this hotel !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not great but did the trick"
The hotel was old and had obviously seen better days. After reading other reviews before my stay I wasn't shocked. I was willing to take a mediocre room for a cheaper price. Hotels are expensive in Columbia. The room had been repainted poorly and there were many stains on the carpet. I hesitated about walking around barefooted. The bathroom floor had […] hair that didn't belong to us. Not great. The beds were clean and ok and the pillows were good. Overall, just a place to lay your head.

"A comfortable and convenient place to stay"
I had a restful night in a good bed. Right in town and close to everything I needed. The hotel staff was helpful and courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so great"
This hotel is very run down. I know some have said it was clean but that is not what I saw. The garbage cans at the entrances were over flowing. My room smelled. The building is need of repair. It is full of workers who in the evening sit outside the doors smoking and drinking. We were not comfortable here at all!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Got the job done"
Musky smelly hotel. Really old. Needs leveled.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will always stay here"
For an average of 48-60 dollars a night, this place is awesome. The rooms we have stayed in so far and all the hallways we've stayed in do not smell like smoke or musky or anything negative for that matter. Hallways and rooms have always been very clean. The fridge is very cold and can even freeze your beers if you sent them in the little freezer area. […] Lol. There is a grocery store and small adult spirits store right across the road. You can use the outdoor pool and they also let you use the indoor pool at the hotel right behind them since it's part of the same company. Takes only 5 minutes to get to Mizzou. Love this place!!!!!

"Just old, not bad, but not great"
There is a reason its cheaper than other hotels. If you accept this, it works for an overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I had to get spay bc it smelled no plug in the tub"
It was not a comfortable stay. It smelled so bad I had to get spray. The tub had no plug for a bath. It just was very unpleasent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hojo in Columbia, Missouri"
We stayed 4 nights thru hotels.com & 3 more afterward. Very nice & helpful staff. I would definitely stay there again if I were in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Decent hotel central location"
Spent the night here with my kids. Its nothing extravagant but decent and fair clean. 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.

"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

"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.
