"Very nice place"
Our stay at the Howard Johnson was very enjoyable. Close to downtown with plenty of parking at the motel. The staff was very friendly and the room was big and very clean. The pool was also very nice and went up to 9ft. The stay really was very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not Good For Allergy Sufferers"
The first room we were assigned smelled like a cat litterbox (they allow pets) so we immediately called down and got a new room. If you have pet allergies, make sure you ask for a room that has not had pets. The second room smelled better but my son found a dead bug in his linens. The bathtub had rubber non-skid strips, which are bad for people with […] latex allergies (my daughter and I). The continental breakfast is minimal. The young man at the front desk who helped us was wonderful and very helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was good. Bathroom and furniture could use updating however, it was clean. Good choices for Breakfast. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson express Staunton"

"Great hotel in the heart of Staunton"
This was a great stay! Although an older hotel, it has been completely updated. The manager has a vegetable garden in the courtyard right by the pool, and talked to us in great detail about it. THe rooms were very clean, the beds were very comfortable. We were able to walk right into the heart of the town to a great restaurant he recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The remote and microwave did not work. The toilet was leaking and the shower made a screaming noise when using. Very old and dated. The staff was friendly but not helpful. Had to walk broken remote to front desk to get a new one. No maintenance person available. Only solution is to change rooms after we had unpacked. Luckily we only stayed 1 night. […] Only restaurants near by is a Hardee's or Chinese take out. Would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent for hotel for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one nite stay..."
was a very nice one nite stay. everyone was very friendly and helpful. we would go back again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean but the hotel was dated. Pipes made noise when people in other rooms took a shower. Basically it met our needs. Room air conditioner worked great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous views of historic district"
Loved it. Wonderful views of historic city from your room. Highly recommend it to anyone. Great rates as wellGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel seems relativelty clean- older/ slightly run downGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, affordable hotel"
Our room was very clean and comfortable. The shower had good water pressure. The only drawback is that breakfast is not that varied, just cereal and some bagels, and the exterior hallway had a bunch of bugs.Genuine Expedia guest review
good for budget hotel. comfortable bed. decent breakfast in morning. next to shuttle bus to downtown, which is a close walk anyway. quaint, quiet town with historic buildings. with its location, we would definitely come back here on our next trip through the mountains. daughter especially enjoyed the Frontier Culture Museum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One suggestion to accommodate elderly/handicapped"
Found the toilet too low and no bar to aid in getting up. Suggest remedying the problem or make effort to place guest in room with better handicap accessibility. Otherwise, stay was pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and as described, staff was courteous. Very pleased with my experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I stayed for two nights"
It was okay, except the staff were great. The manager has a veggie garden! I enjoyed talking to him about it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fastest Check-In possible!"
45 second at the desk, that's it. In our room three minutes after arrival. Good bed, good shower in tub. Breakfast served until ten AM and it was much better then most. Perhaps another (second) toaster would help the flow. Fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, milk, juice, water, english muffins, bread, bagels, muffins, waffles, cinnamon bread, cream cheese, […] etc etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceptional Value for a HoJo Overnight stay"
My wife and I decided to stop in Staunton, VA, on our way to Charlotte by car. We chose the HoJo Express, because the price was very reasonable and we only needed a room with a bed and shower. BOY!!! We're we surprised. This place is great. The hotel management is very courteous and anxious to help with any requests. The rooms are spacious, clean and […] filled with warmth and hospitality. The night before, we had stayed at a much more expensive and supposedly much more prestigious hotel in NY. It was small, unkempt and the staff was rude. This HoJo Express is a breath of FRESH AIR, in an otherwise stale. There are many inexpensive and good places to eat and visit, within walking distance. Stay here when you are in the area. You won't be sorry. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There was no decaf coffee in the pot and there was no offer to make any when we pointed out that there wasn't any decaf coffee made/left. Toaster worked, but was obviously was on its last legs to toast the frozen waffles. I slept fine, but my husband thought the pillows were uncomfortable. We're heading back into Staunton but I promised my family I'd […] pick another place to stay. My daughter thought it was a step up from a Motel 6 accommodation. Lots of mirrors to make the elevator, dining area, rooms appear bigger. Since I'm not a fan of mirrors, it just made me uncomfortable (didn't bother my daughter who does like to look at herself!) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I don't know why Hotels.com only gives this place two stars. This place is great. Don't look for a high class hotel experience. However, it has all the comforts, cleanliness, and service that a hotel can offer. Plus it's in an ideal location to walk to anywhere in downtown Staunton. Also, it's right next to the free trolly stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Street people asking for money in parking lot. sufficient but no extras.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay - hotel kind of hard to find!"
Nice stay - we did have a hard time finding it, I wish the map on the website and receipt had more information on it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is within walking distance of downtown Staunton. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows, large towels, and a quiet neighborhood. Downside is that the TV is an old analog model that produced only a fair picture. Clock radio was difficult to set as an alarm. Work area was a desk and two chairs without very good lighting. Breakfast was good with cereal, […] fresh fruit, frozen waffles, muffins, juice, and coffee. The staff kept the breakfast bar well stocked. Hotel is recommended for an overnight stay.

"On our way to DC"
We stayed over on our way to DC. This was an inexpensive place to stay but was somewhat dilapidated. The pad under the carpet was rolled up. The bed linens were thin and cold. OK place to stay if you were broke and in college, traveling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed my stay."
I stayed here after doing some hiking in the George Washington National Forest, so I was really just looking for a shower and a bed. The service was thorough and quick, I think it literally took 10 seconds to check-in and even less time to check-out. The wifi was speedy and the room was very clean. The hotel is older and a bit dated, but I was comfortable […] and felt safe. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Glad we picked a place in the historic district rather than off the hiway, drove by numerous interesting brick bldgs including one behind the hotel as well as Pres Wilson's. Brfst: ordinary with cereal (cornflakes, froot loops, cookie crisp or imitation) milk/aj/oj toastables, mini-muffins, bananas Wi-Fi: worked but not fast Parking-ample pool-looked […] clean, didn't use room: large, had mwave & ref tho not listed in Expedia Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to downtown"
The staff was very helpful. A good place to stay for the budget minded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"using as stopover enroute home"
Very old hotel. outdated furnishings. could not see breakfast area when exiting hotel. ok on cleanliness but not enough IMO. especially bathroom. had ample towels, shampoo, soap, etc. very small slow elevator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stand"
My wife and I stayed at the Staunton HoJo on our way to NC. The front desk and lobby area were very inviting. Check-in was easy and fast. Our room was clean and tidy. The AC unit was a bit loud for us. The location to downtown was very convenient. The price was also very affordable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fairly easy to find and close walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right in the middle of downtown Staunton."
A pleasing experience. They haven't upgraded to flat screen TVs yet and they have no jacuzzi bathtubs in any of their suits. But for the price I paid it was very pleasing. I arrived a day early and they let me stay in the non-smoking room for the remainder of my stay even thought I had booked smoking (reservations didn't give non-smoking options). Staff […] was very easy to get along with. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"basic but good value"
Just a couple of blocks from downtown and much cheaper than anything else that close. But it's not exactly luxurious. For the price it's what you'd expect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the price"
Spent two nights and the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. My biggest complaint was the breakfast, it was very basic and not much of a selection. We actually ate at a restaurant on the second morning instead of at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Accomadations"
Stayed here with the family on our way up to Philly for son's graduation. Got three rooms total. All were very nice, clean, and comfortable. We had no problems with anything. I would consider it an exceptional value at the price we got through Expedia which was about $60/niteGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a nice hotel"
Outdated, dirty, they gave away my room after I had booked through Hotel.com & offered a smoking room with a double bed, even though I booked non-smoking w/two double beds. If you use Hotels.com, you will NOT get a refund neither. Overall, a very bad experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, lousy breakfast"
I'm not overly picky about hotels. Fundamentally, I want a place that is clean & safe. This HoJo gets very high marks for both. It is also in good condition, nothing stained or overly worn. But when I read reviews, I always check what's said about the breakfast, because I'll usually choose a good breakfast over a nicer hotel for the same price. This […] was absolutely one of the worst. Juice, cereal, milk, pastries, packets of oatmeal. That's it. Oh--except for bananas & apples, the redeeming items. Don't look for the waffle iron that's so common in hotels now--there isn't one. If you want anything hot, you'd better put your muffins in the microwave. Really, if you don't care about breakfast at all, this hotel is a very good choice--much better than the other HoJos where I've stayed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More than adequate for an overnight stay."
Location in downtown Staunton makes it very convenient. Parts of the hotel are showing their age: Around elevator in lobby and on the floors. Carpet in the room was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bath tub very dated and rather dingy. Area around the sink was chipped and showed what looked like burn stains - though the room was non-smoking.That night […] I noticed a strange smell like burned toast(!) in the room. Turned on fan-only and the smell went away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A last resort"
Was attending graduation at JMU. Unable to obtain reservations any closer, on arrival, there was a rust stain in the tub ( removed 2nd night).Shades on the lamps at bedside were held on by scotch tape! . The second night my wife got up at 3 AM and found 1/4" of water on the bathroom floor. Neither the shower, nor the toilet had overflowed. The toilet […] was approximately 12" high, apparently an elementary school salvage! The hotel is approx 50 yrs old and has suffered from an extreme lack of maintenance. Staff was very friendly.
