"Convienent to where we needed to be."
The hotel needs some updating and our room was missing an extra chair, one chair for two people in the room. No TV guide. I did enjoy the heated floor in the bathroom. It is now time to hire someone to pick up the garbage in the courtyard and the parking lot, not a pretty sight from our room. All being said we would stay again here if the need aris […] es.

Room was fairly clean.........just freezing!! good little continental breakfast. Fair enough for price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Yes it is cheap, but it worth cheap. It has moisture on bathroom, it takes an hour an a half to warm up the room cause the heater was not working when i arrived. I've been in cheap room before but this one got the gold medals.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Toronto East HoJo Experience"
We stayed 3 nights at the hotel, the room wasn't cleaned with a noise bathroom door, used the swimming pool the second night and the sauna was under construction. The location was great for our purpose and you can see the hotel right from the 401 hwy at Warden exit. If all you needed is a place to stay at a convenient location, that won't be too bad, […] but if you expected more of a hotel, you maybe disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was only there for one night but the staff was courteous and when I had a problem with the heat in the room, it was dealt with promptly and efficiently.Genuine Expedia guest review

"inexpensive but tired old hotel."
This hotel is located just off the 401 hwy in Toronto, is about 25 minutes from downtown Toronto and not far from shopping centers and food establishments. The staff were helpful. The hotel itself is an older building that is in need of a good makeover. It is tired and rundown looking. The rooms are large and fairly clean, and the bed was comfortable... […] but it's not a place you would want to spend your honeymoon or family vacation. The pool is large and well kept. The included breakfast consisted of bagels and bread for toast, cold cereal, orange and apple juice, coffee and that's about it. It is an ok place to spend the night if you are on a tight budget.

staff was friendly. room was the worst I have stayed in. smelled like an ashtray, yellow ceilings, peeling wall paper, cigarette burns in carpet .I could feel every coil in the mattress. I don't think it has been upgraded or decorated since the mid eighty's. i can't recommend it to anyone. perhaps someone from Howard Johnson's. executive board should […] check it out.

Hotel was outdated and old When I walked into my room it was below freezing. The furnace was not on and it was -10 outside. I turn the furnace on waited an hour and it was barely warm air coming out of the furnace. I had to call downstairs to the front desk several times to get something done about it finally they had to bring me an extra plug-in heater.

"This HoJo is past its prime."
Used to go to bar at this hotel back in the mid-90's. Bar is long gone but signs are still there for it. Pool was chilly, but the hot-tub was great. Room was satisfactory, but the hotel has a general 'run down' look & feel to it. Cheap accommodations, you get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel and room"
We were only there for 1 night. The hotel was convenient. The staff wasn't friendly. The room was supposed to be "totally renovated", but it didn't seem like that to us. We didn't see anything new. The pillows were too soft and old. We were on the main floor and couldn't lock the outside door. Thank heavens for a safety bar. We won't be back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Deceiving, disgusting hotel."
Very poor conditions. Everything in the room was rusty, old and used to the bone. No smoking room that smells the cigarettes. Room not clean. The carpet is disgusting. Disgusting bathroom. Found nothing positive or even correct to say about this hotel. Even the breakfast is poor. The area does not inspire trust as if you are in an deserted industrial […] zone. I do not understand how such hotel still operates. It must be closed and renewed. I will never be there again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We have renovated some of our rooms, hallways, also renovated our indoor pool and we continue to improve our hotel to better serve our guests. Front Office Manager
I booked the hotel before reading the reviews, and was scared after reading all the negative reviews... However I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable. Our room was clean. There was a musty smell.. It seemed the room had not been used in a while however […] after opening the paio door in the balcony the smell soon was gone. The bathroom was immaculate, the bed sheets were clean. The housekeeping staff were amazing. They respected our privacy and did not touch or move a thing in the hotel room. The other guests in the hotel were nice as well. It was quiet past 10:00pm . The only thing that was wrong with our stay was that there is no elevator in the hotel. Lugging suitcases up stairs was not ideal... But for the price of the hotel it wasn't a huge issue. All in all, great stay, friendly staff and clean room! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Inside the hotel was disgusting , very smoky smell all hallways and even out side of the hotel you could smell deferent smoke. Also , I am very unhappy of their service the person who was at the reseption counter was very disrespect and rude .more over, the room and hallway was smelly and dusty . It is better to this hotel should be removed from the […] list of Hotel. Com because it's not good for their reputation Note: I am very satisfied with the service of Hotel.

"Cheap, but wouldn't stay there again"
The front entrance is gloomy and needs to be remodelled. The staff at the front desk were not engaged. When I approcahed to check in the employeee did not acknowledge me until I spoke. The hotel needs major renovation. There is a sokey musty smell to the rooms. When the heat was turned on there was a burning smell like it hadn't been used in ages. Then […] the tempature would not stay consistent. It was cheap in price but I will not be staying there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"ABSOLUTLEY DISCUSTINGLY DIRTY HOTEL"
This hotel room smelt like BUG spary. Their bed had a U in their matresses. Their carpet in their room had not been cleaned in years. Their bathroom was discusting the vanity sink was stained and unsanitary. Their shower stall was unkept. The toliet bowel had stains in it. The patio door was stuck and very hard to open. They had no ashtrays in the room […] or at the front desk. The outside of the hotel had a fleet of limousines being serviced on the property. The property outside was littered with cigarettes. Their hallways smelt of crack and pot I would not even keep my pet in this enviroment. ABSOLUTLEY DISCUSSDED WITH THIS HOTEL JUST A NIGHTMARE. Public health atorities should be notified.

Clean room, messy grounds, crummy breakfast, pool opens at 10 a.m. but you have to check out at 11 a.m.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was not the greatest! Room had stains all over the carpet. Cigarette burns all over the carpet even though was smoke free room. Cigarette burns in bedding as well and mattress. Shower was so hot was unable to use, could not regulate at all. My family and I left without showers! Was called and woken up at 10:00pm and asked if my child might be out in […] the hallway as there was complaints of noise on our floor! Unbeleivable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed is uncomfortable, you can feel the actual wires in the mattress squeezing you when you lay on it, the sheet is very old and dingy, dirty looking, like it was never wash. The carpet when you walk on it the bottom of your feet is full of dirt like you are walking with your bare feet outside the yard. The outside presentation looks like a desert, […] never been cut for ages, the entire upkeep is very deplorable. I would never go to that hotel again, nor recommend it to my worst enemy. The air condition looks so old and broken down, and it makes more noise than a freight train. The wall paper on the wall is old and nasty looking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"HORRIBLE! Do NOT book this hotel!"
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! The room condition was dirty, and the decor most likely hasn't been updated since the 1990's. Someone is running a limo service out of the back of the hotel, there is garbage piled up outside, and I think that there may be people actually living there long term. We were concerned about the safety of leaving our laptop and […] ipad in the room so we took everything with us when we left the room. Overall I would avoid this hotel. It is not worth the cheap price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is a Howard Johnson??"
We are seniors in our sixties. The facility is run-down, with minimal maintenance and cleaning. The courtyard was full of debris outside our room and definitely due for a mowing. The parking lot was dirty, the sidewalk gutters along the building covered with cigarette butts. Though my wife and I both smoke, we used the ashtray (which we had to ask for, […] so we are not down on smokers generally! The restaurant-bar was closed, and it appeared to have been for some time, although there was some painting underway, common area windows were filthy and the thermal seals had obviously failed some time ago. The property in general looked a bit seedy, other than the essentials and the lobby. We were able to get a wake-up call, just as well since the alarm clock in the room didn't work properly. We expect that there might be evidence of previous smoking, but ripped and stained wallpaper, carpets furniture and a vanity top with multiple burns, and a property littered with smoke butts would indicate to us that neither the management nor the tenants actually care what the place looks like. All things considered, we decided not the avail ourselves of the free breakfast, but found a Tim Hoton's a kilometer away instead. There is obviously a reason for the low price, but Howard Johnson appears to have fallen a long way, unfortunately. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Right By the Highway"
This hotel has been forgotten by Howard Johnson. Not easy to find, buidling in poor condition, cannot access rooms from inside lobby, furniture and TV very old, mattresses are not flat, the foot of the bed are on an incline. Only good thing about this hotel they had a smoking room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not stay at this location."

DO NOT stay here, probably the most the disguisting I ever stayed in. There were stains on the carpet, the sheets were dirty and the boxspring were black with mold. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere elseGenuine Expedia guest review
"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
