"HoJo a little deceiving"
I must admit that Howard Johnson normally has a pretty good reputation. Unfortunately, this one is not at the top of my list. The location in good and there are restaurants near by. Although this is a positive thing, the pool area smelled really bad, the beds sank, and the bathroom was just dirty. And, the "free breakfast" is nothing to brag about (bread, […] bagels, cereal). Will not be going back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean with patio door to the outside with a place to sit. Hotel was clean with complimentary continental breakfast. I guess the only caveat is you get continental breakfast, pool etc discounts at the restaurant yet a charge to use the lobby computer? Other than that we were pleased with room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avoid certain section of this hotel."
There are sections of this hotel that should be avoided with extreme prejudice. There is one wing of the hotel is blocked off for your protection. The ice machine on the second floor is old, broken and moldy. Part of the back end of the hotel is rented out to a limousine service. I expected a lot better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"run down cheapie"
If you're looking for cheap and not cheerful this is the place for you. Yes it is cheap but the downsides are nonsmoking rooms next to a smoker's coridoor, filthy and damaged bathroom sink, inadequate tea and coffee and too tight to provide any extras, strong Chinese food smell from adjoining restaurant, unkempt outdoor area, broken door, etc. Nice […] pool though and good access to expressway, free parking.

"Seen better days"
For a simple overnight stay in TO, with a pool, for price it is a deal. Having said that, it desperately needs a facelift; it needs better service, the free 'breakfast' needs to be improved, repairs and cleanup around the building and grounds need to be performed, get rid of Limos, buses etc scattered around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Almost didn't find it. Wish we hadn't."
It was easy to miss the entrance of this hotel. We almost did. Reception area was dark and unattractive. No elevator to get to the second floor (we were carrying a heavy piece of luggage so it was an inconvenience). We were sent to a room that was already booked. Could of been quite embarassing. When we got a room of our own it looked seedy. Air conditonner […] was so noisy we had to turn it so low it was barely effecive. At least the bed looked clean so we slept there but left as quickly as possible the next morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to our family"
we would never go backiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was a little rundown but the rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. We asked about taking the subway downtown and the deskclerk was very helpful. He told us exactly what to do and it was a great experience. The pool and spa were very nice. The complimentary continental breakfast was good as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a good stay , excactly what we neededGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived at the hotel 15 minutes before check in and were told that the room wasn't ready come back at 3pm, we understood this as we were early. So we waited until 3:15 to go back in and try again and still our room wasn't available. We were finally about to check at after 3:30, we were told that because of the inconvenience that our room was upgraded […] to a deluxe suite. The room we reserved was supposed to sleep 6 adults, with 2 queen beds. We traveled with 2 adults and 3 children. The 2 beds were smaller then double beds and was very crowded for us. The sliding door that led to the "Balcony" was broken which made it very difficult to open or close. We took the children to the pool- no towel were provided and the pool appeared to be in ill repair. In the morning my wife walked down to the breakfast area with 2 of our children to check to see if it was open. It was indeed just opening up. The room had 5 or 6 staff eating the food, that we were under the impression was for the guests. The breakfast was limited enough, but to have to wait behind the staff as they eat and socialize was very disappointing. We will no longer stay at Howard Johnson, as this isn't the first time we were disappointed with the chain. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Needs many upgrades!"
Hot tub was dirty, sauna was closed, hotel was seriously dated. Should cost about $35.00/nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is old and grungy, the halls smelt like urine, there weren't enough towels in the bathroom and their bath towels were the size of hand towels! The pool had no towels and no service so we had to walk to the front desk dripping of water and then had to wait till someone was sent down to give us some. Would NEVER EVER rccommend this hotel to […] anyone! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnson Inn & Suites Toronto Ontario East"
No hot water, had to change rooms because the keys would not work, room was cold, had to ask for extra blankets. Had people looking for clients knocking on our room door, Said it was a mistake. The food at the hotels buffet ( Chinese ) was luke warm! I'am sorry I would not recomend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"howard johnson hotel toronto ontario"
room did not have any tub plug I asked twice for one so my child can have a bath and i stil didn't recieve it. The sliding patio doors have a really big gap so the outside air was leaking into the room. Renting this room in December and the beds were right beside the door and with the amount of air that came into the room did not make it any better. […] Over all I stayed with my family there for 5 days and I am now extremely sick from the cold air. oh ya their laundry facilities there was 2 washers and 2 dryers in a room the size of a closet and after I spent $7 to do 2 loads of laundry (washed and dryed) I found out that my cloths did not get very cleaned at all. And there was no garbage can in there so all the lint and soap containers were on the floor or in the small sink and there was a condom wraper on the floor. I WOULD NEVER GO THERE AGAIN OR RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

In the middle of an industrial area. The hotel is getting old and warn. The TV channel selection was poor, and the bathroom really needs to be renovated.. Overall, not the best place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth it!"
When registering, I was charged additional funds to receive an upgraded room. The renovations in this room reflect the very poorest quality of workmanship. The hotel reception staff, although pleasant, could not justify the additional charge policy nor the security deposit for the room policy....the cost of staying at this hotel is simply not worth […] it! This hotel was once a nice place to stay but sadly it is now a dilapidated and run down place, even with the so called renovations! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Worst Howard Johnson Inn"
I have stayed in many hotels over the years. Canadian and abroad, I have never stayed in such a dirty , unkept room. The pillows smelled like they had not been replaced in 10 years or more.The cases were yellow and smeeled like they had been in storage for a few years. The bed reminded me of my great grandmothers, lumpy and smelly. There were no washclothes, […] bathmat, and only one bath towel, but I believe it was a hand towel. We asked for a smoking room , no ashtray, burns everywhere on the night stand and dresser. There was a full piece of pizza and dipping sauce I found beside the heater , when I tried to find a heat control for the freezing room. It was not my pizza , I assure you. We were given a room on the ground floor with a patio slider door. This door never closed tight and the draft that came through the door was wistling all night. Will never stay with this hotel chain again. I called the front desk in the morning to let them know of the missing items , so I was not charged on my credit card for the maid not doing her job, or helping herself to the hotels stock.

"Hotel Under Renovation"
This hotel is in need over a renovation 1970's decor , operator trying to update while still operating clients appear to be mostly tours and travel groups.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close access to major highways. However this is an older hotel and in need of some basic security attention. Outside sliding door(s) of my room didn't lock or even close completely, some concern when staying alone. Also there are 5 entrances to this building and the outside doors are not always securely locked during the day. TV reception was very poor. […] Staff was as helpful as they are allowed to be.

"Overdue for a major renovation"
This hotel should have been bull-dosed over about 5 years ago and rebuilt. The place is a total dive and fire hazard. Would never stay here again. I was fearful for my life and had difficulty sleeping thinking if this hotel is in this dire need of a renovation does any of the fire security even work?Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Will NOT go back"
I have stayed in a few different Howard Johnson in Toronto but this is the worst. It's in renovation but that's not I care about. The room smells and I don't feel comfortable in any way inside the room. I would not choose this brand doesn't matter how cheap it is!!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnson Inn & Suites Toronto East"
Our family had a wonderful stay at the Howard Johnson Inn in Toronto. The staff was very accomodating in granting us a much needed early check-in. At breakfast the staff took the time to interact with us and offered great service. We had the pool to ourselves the following morning. The location was easy to find for our GPS. I would stay there again […] in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

When I arrived in the afternoon I was greeted by Annie ,one of the reception staff. Very friendly and helpful, even to verifying pronounciation of my name properly ! All in all the staff were Very friendly and helpful ,they got us extra coffee/creamers etc. and the only thing that wasn't there was a shower cap (they do not provide) otherwise they were […] good and we did have a good stay. As they are in the middle of construction/renovation they did well for our accomodation. No microwave oven in room but there is a fridge otherwise as we had a "new room" it was nice.

"Not bad, but I've stayed at better for less money"
Check in was quick and easy. I knew that the hotel was under renovations when I booked it so that was not a surprise. I liked the fact that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The location was good, close to restaurants and the bus. Outside our room someone had left their old dirty boots. There was something sticky on top of the tv. The cord […] from the lamp was spliced together with electrical tape and the light bulb was hanging out. I told my friend that there was no way I was going to even touch it because it looked like it would start a fire. They cleaned our room and took the towels but did not leave any. We asked at the desk and then went out. When we came back in the afternoon still no towels. We went through FIVE room keys because almost every time we went out and came back the key would not work. I would like to say it was an ok place if you are just looking for a place to sleep but since my bed was sagging in the middle it was barely even that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"value for the $"
We knew what we were getting when I reserved the room. We got good value for the low dollar spent and would go back for the same reason. The staff were friendly and helpful, but make no mistake...this is not a high end hotel...however, it provided the basic amenities needed for the purpose of my trip and that was all we required. The hotel is being […] renovated and we got one of the newly renovated rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Served the purpose"
I have stayed at one of the Hojo's in Niagara Falls a few times and the check in and out was MUCH easier. Confirmed ID and done. Handed in room cards when leaving and done. As simply a place to sleep for the night, it was fine. Pool/hot tub was big enough but pool area could use better lighting and some better upkeep. Hotel is under renos but I was […] suprised to see the sauna used as a storage area. Overall, for the price, I would stay here again if I was simply looking for a place to sleep.
