"A Good Place to Spend One Night; Bed was Too Soft"
My ladyfriend and I stayed here for one night, and we were fairly comfortable. No more than that because the bed was rather soft, and we are both accustomed to a firmer mattress. The room was clean and in very good condition. We appreciated having a coffee maker with coffee, tea, etc. in the room. We didn't partake of the adequate continental breakfast […] in the tiny dining area, not out of dissatisfaction, but only because we had made plans to have a fuller breakfast at a favorite diner across the street. Because of the soft bed we will not return. Instead, next time we will seek a place in Bethel/Danbury that has firmer beds. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient to route 84"
solid hotel but needs an upgrade of their breakfast-very basic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's cheap, which was what I needed most"
The positives: -- The staff members are very friendly and competent, from the front desk to housekeeping. -- The rate is cheap. -- The room includes a decent sized refrigerator and a microwave. With a store just up the street, I was able to save a lot of money on eating out. (I stayed for a week.) -- The rate is cheap. -- The location is convenient. -- […] The bathroom is clean, as is the outer hallway. -- Did I mention the low rate? The negatives: -- The "breakfast" is mostly small bagels, cream cheese, and ancient jelly. -- The sheets seem to be made out of fiberglass. -- The television seemed to be slowly dying, with the top quarter of the screen mostly fuzzy. -- The carpet wasn't particularly clean, and the recliner was filthy. -- The walls are thin, so it was sometimes noisy. To be fair, I didn't complain or ask for any changes. I knew I was going for the lowest price I could find, so I wasn't expecting four stars (or even three). The bottom line: use the fridge to store supplements for breakfast, get over the scratchy sheets, squint at the television, sit on the bed, wear earplugs, and bring slippers. If you want more, pay for more. It did the job for what I needed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"This HoJo is a No-No..."
I will admit that I only chose this hotel because it was cheap and because I had stayed at other HoJo's before with satisfactory results. First, I am familiar with this area and did not even know there was a HoJo here but I figured things could have changed since I had been in CT last. Nope. It is just that unremarkable that I never noticed it was there […] before. The man at the front desk when i checked in was pleasant and friendly. I had reserved a two-bed suite with the impression that would give me and the three teenagers I was traveling with more room but he informed me that the suites have full beds, not queen as was shown on the reservation. So i opted for a regular room with two queen beds. The condition of the room was less than pleasant, it was clean-ish but quite outdated and the lampshades were broken and cracked. The carpet was old, worn, and dirty-looking. Also, the toilet seat was broken so every time you sat on it, it pinched you. The teens were less than pleased. The beds were uncomfortable. Housekeeping was nice enough to give us extra towels and supplies whenever we needed them, we did not have regular daily cleaning of the room while we were there (our choice). Overall, it was a place to sleep that was convenient in location... that's it. I would not recommend this hotel or stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean, good night's sleep"
This Ho Jo's was very clean, polished floors, clean bathroom. The King sized bed extremely comfortable, even if bedding in need of update. A no frills room. The most disappointing part was the "breakfast." Very meager selection of pastries, and two types of cereal. Old juice vending machine. Coffee mediocre, no real cream. But dining area very clea […] n. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnson in Danbury"
The room that was up on the site was a horrbile room. It seemed like ciggarettes, was very dirty and run down. I had to upgrade to another room. I would never recommended using that room at this hotel. Call and make sure you are booking the correct room before booking the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson bethel ct"
The staff was very friendly and courteous, the hotel need a refresh the walls and the hallways were filthy and stained. The hotel linens Had holes and burn marks and smelled moldy. The bathroom was dingy as well the supplied toiletries were sub par. Based on this experience I would not recommend this hotel to fellow business travelers, but based the […] staff I might consider another Howard Johnson if my first choices are not available.

The property itself was in pretty good condition for the price but the service was terrible. Staff were unhelpful and pretty useless. My battery died and since I'm not from the area I didn't know who to call. I had my 11 month old son with me and I asked the front desk clerk what I should do and he said "do you have triple A?" I said "no, I don't" he […] said "I don't know then" so I had to figure it out on my own. I know it's not a full service hotel but I just think that is something any decent person should have pitched in and helped with, given the circumstance...basic customer service here.

"Howard Johnson Bethel"
The lady at the front desk was rude, and so were the rest of the staff. I do not recoment staying there. We got there late at night, and they sold our room to someone else. We had to take a room that we didn't want. We stayed at the hotel only one night instead of three.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the cost"
This hotel was nice. I didn't quite realize where it was when I booked it originally but it worked out well. The room was nice, apart from what appeared to be a few cigarette burns on the linens. I however would stay here again as the staff was friendly and efficient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good basic hotel"
08/20/14 Mark P Syracuse
My family of 5 stayed 1 night. We have family in town so really only needed a clean place to sleep and shower. The beds seemed new, firm, comfortable. My wife even commented on how well she slept. Furnishings were a little dated. Continental breakfast was very basic, but we were really only looking for coffee and tea anyway. It was perfect for our needs. If you are looking for a pool or a more elaborate amenities there are better options in Bethel. Staff was friendly. Free wifi. I would stay there again

e stayed 2 days in HJ in Bethel CT,We like it was very clean and comfortable.We recommend this hotel .If we had to travel again we will stop there again.The people at the desk were very nice ,they help us with directions to town.Very nice area too.
"Good for the money"
I would say that this place is good for the money. The only complaint I would have is that one half the floor is smoking and the other half is non. As a non smoker it was not very pleasant to walk in the hall and have the place reek of smoke. Other then that very good for the money.
"Clean, economical, friendly!"
08/02/14 cgw2 Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey
Much better than the place across the street (Days Inn?). Clean linen, refrigerator, microwave and it was quiet! The staff were very attentive and friendly. The hallways and rooms were kept up well. Slight wear in the showers, but overall a refreshing nights stay.
"Tired motel, needs upgrade"
07/14/14 Donald R Bethel
The facilities of this hotel leave a lot to be desired. The bed was fine but the recliner in the room was dirty and unusable. The bathroom faucets were rusted and leaking. The caulking around the sink and bathtub were worn and needed rework. The toilet seat was loose. All in all, it was not a pleasant stay. The breakfast was a very limited of cold cereal, coffee and juice.

Furnishings inside are a bit old but clean and functioning. Breakfast area is small, but works. Wish they had some hot foods.

"Decent Stay for the Price"
05/25/14 Steven L Wayne
Decent place to stay for my 3 nights in Bethel area. It was a bit worn, but suitable. Staff pleasant. Breakfast was adequate: cereal, toast, bagels, danish, juice & coffee. Wi-Fi wasn't working 1st night; a bit slow when working. Overall, decent place for the price. I would stay here again
