The overall town didnt seem very "clean"Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a problem with the TV remote. Eventually iwent down and traded it out, after not getting anyone to come to the room and check the problem out. Once irealized the problem I traded out remote.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Burlington Hotel under a warehouse roof spanning r"
Staff very unprofessional. We were told we could add an additional night at same price only to have another employee emerge from back room arguing with desk clerk about our booking price. Over the next 20 minutes there were 4 employees including maids involved in the discussion. Ended up staying somewhere else the second night and was glad to have better […] service at the the other hotel. Would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rated for the money."
The location is well kept. My room was more than sterile, my bathtub had some stains but was clean, and everything was taken care of. The mattress was firm, and they brought me extra pillows when requested. The staff was very nice, joked around with me, and was willing to accommodate my needs, though they weren't too heavy. Definitely a 3 star place, […] cleaned like a four star, with a very overly pleasant desk staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice pool, but wasn't open during hours we were th"
Pool was open 10 AM to 10 PM, but we didn't arrive till 9 PM and had to leave by 10:30 AM. Pool looked nice! Beds were OK. Carpet in room seemed a little old and dirty. Breakfast was nice. Good value for the money. You pay for what you get.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room smelled like mildew. The carpet and the chair in the room was stained and smelled. The bottom of the chair had at least a years worth of dust and cobwebs. The shower was a joke. No water pressure at all and the bottom of the tub had a black film on it. I couldnt even give my daughter a bath. Overall was very disappointed in the room. The pool […] was freezing. The website said it was heated but definetly was not. Will not be staying at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"HoJos in Burlington,IA"
No smoking in run down room. I hoped the ceiling wouldnt fall in while we were sleeping. The shower was like a warm sprinkler system. Cigarette butts were all over outside. I wouldnt go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
I feel like this room was overpriced at almost $100. It is a typical redone 60s motel that used to have all rooms with outside doors. This one now has a big enclosed area with pools and weird decorating. My room faced this so had no outside window. Sort of creepy. Also the tv didn't work. Will not be staying here again...Genuine Expedia guest review
On July 26, 2013 my family visited your Howard Johnson motel in Burlington, Iowa. I would like to give you my opinion on this place. As we entered the motel, l I was greeted by I thought it was the cleaning room lady, but she waited on us. The phones kept on ringing and she had to interrupt several times to answer the phone, to put another customer […] on hold more than five times. If it was me I would find a different motel. The rooms that I had reserved (connecting rooms) and paid for were not available. They said they would have to upgrade on the second floor rooms 218 and 219. Which I had to pay extra for each room extra, when it was already paid in full on the agreement with a credit card the day before. The manager had to help the attendant with the computer to change these arrangements. I and my family had no towels in either rooms, or a trash can. My husband had to go to the clerk for these items. When going to the customer desk to ask for towels the clerk said that the towels are being washed and will be done shortly. In room 218 the bathroom shower looked as the person before us had taken a shower and shampoo was squirted on the walls of the shower and it looked like oil from their body was still on the side of the walls of the shower, very dirty looking, and would not use it. This could not have been scrubbed down. The floor was so dirty that the towel was black from the floor. And i Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nearby by to the Nauvoo Historic sites."
Wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there when I took my daughter to Fun City. Our room didn't have bath towels. We used our swimming towels. Breakfast was good. No kids in the hot tub even with a parent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth it"
It was cheap, but not worth it. The sheets were torn, the room was filthy and smelled like a locker room (mostly because the rooms faced the indoor pool), and I found a spider in the sheets when I turned back the bed. When I put my towel on the floor to get out of the shower, it turned black from the tile-that is how dirty it was. We had booked this […] online, and it was nonrefundable, so we stayed. Otherwise, we would have walked right out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable overnight stay. The water pressure in the shower was way too low!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"old, worn out motel"
This motel has been around for years and certainly looks that way. The rooms are worn, and the grounds are not well maintained. The breakfast area was a mess on all of the mornings that I visited there. While it is a cheap motel, it certainly comes across that way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel centrally located"
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable although in need of updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a very nice place to stay. It did need some work to bring it up to date.. It just needs some freshing up. The staff were just great, very helpful and always ready to answer any of your questions. They signed us up for your rewards program but I can't seem to make it work now.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the cost"
Good breakfast and polite staff. We will be staying there again in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
when we pulled into parking lot, not very well lit and unkept looking. Not at all what the website showed. There were people sitting outside their rooms with the doors open. Made me wonder, was the AC working?! Proceeded around hotel looking for a place to park our truck and trailer....was none. The back half of the hotel looked like it was not even […] being used. Needless to say, we ate the $100.00 for the bill and never went in to check in. I did not feel safe or comfortable sleeping there let alone having my vehicle parked in the parking lot.

"A horrible experience and the rate was ridiculous"
My experience was horrible,the room was price to high for what it looked like. The ceiling had mold.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice place for an overnight stay - nothing exceptional.Genuine Expedia guest review
Thank You. I loved that the rooms surrounded the pool. Very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprisingly nice hotel"
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, hotel was very clean and well kept, well worth the cost of staying here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The rate was OK"
This ia amotel that shows its age prior to Howard Johnson franchise.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was clean but hotel is old. Some furniture in room looked newer. OK for just an overnight.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just great -- no real complaints"
I've seen some negative reviews of this motel, but did not experience any of those things. The room was clean and very comfortable and looked just great. Even though the building was older it didn't feel that way, aside from the look of the outdoor staircases, which was very minor. Basically I was surprised at how comfortable it all was for the low […] price, and the staff was very nice, even giving me a courtesy call when I got up to the room.

"was a great place to meet our kids"
The stay was quite nice - we were only there one night but had we had more time would have spent more time in the pool with the grandkids and just relaxed - rooms were quite well furnished - microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker and blow dryer - the breakfast was good but would like to suggest a few more fruit choices - seemed to be a lot of carbs […] in the food choices for breakfast.

"No air conditioning - really?"
The hotel hadn't turned on it's air conditioning yet. Hot and uncomfortable that we ended up leaving 2 days early. That's the downside of pre-paying. Front desk manager was helpful upon check-in. Maid service - not so much having to ask to washcloths and towels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth it. Dirty carpets and furniture."
This hotel is mediocre at best. Carpets and furniture desperately need to be replaced. The gym pictured is NOT the gym that is On the premises. Equipment in gym is old and limited. Continental breakfast is ok. This place is more like a 35-45 dollar a night hotel on its best day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Filthy and LOUD"
Our room was directly off of the pool area. It was older and somewhat dirty. At 10:30 there were still kids screaming and adults partying making it impossible to sleep. The front desk wouldn't do anything. We asked to move rooms and were given a room that smelled of extreme body odor and the floor was filthy. The room next door was also having a very […] loud party. Our third room wasn't as filthy but still dirty. At least it was quiet. Our romantic couples night ruined. Next time I'll spend the money and sleep somewhere CLEAN and QUIET. Do not go here if you want to relax!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Response by Howard Johnson Burlington I would like to thank you for writing a review on your recent stay at our hotel. We hope to see you as a guest in the near future.
"2 night stay"
This Howard Johnsons is the old Holiday Inn. Its been a long standing Motel in Burlington. In the late 70's they built a dome over the swimming pool area (the Holidome). Since then this Motel has been the hot spot to throw weekend parties. The pool area closes now at 10pm, so it quiets down around 10:30. The exterior rooms are quiet. The Motel is a […] little run down. The trim and door jams could use a paint job. The beds were comfortable. The TV gets most stations as every other Motel TV. If you are not picky about the looks, this is a cheap convient place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was bummed about staff."
The hotel staff at counter was not welcoming and complained and insisted I only get the room she put in. We were on an exterior room with no knowledge other than accessing the pool area through the from door. Also knowledge of anything or how to get anywhere was unanswered due to her having no knowledge. We were ignored for long periods of time because […] her phone call with her boyfriend was more important then helping us on two different days. Also whoever cleaned the room the first night had stolen some of our snack food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Room very dirty"
Staff was very accomdating but room was very dirty. We checked out of the hotel early and manager authorized reimbursement from Hotels.com even though there was a no cancellation policy. Beds were comfortable and the pool, hot tub, breakfast, miniature golf and pool tables would be a nice touch if had a family was staying there. Would be a nice place […] if the room was cleaner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room is by far the worst room I have ever stayed in, in my life. The entire room was filthy. The floor turned the bottom of our feet black as shoe polish. There was snot blown all over the window curtain. The room stunk of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. The bathroom stunk as well, and the shower curtain was dirty as well. It looked […] as thought the room had not been cleaned in over a year. The only clean thing in the room, at least it was not noticeably dirty, was the bedding. I would never stay in this hotel again, and may never stay in a Howard Johnson again. You could not pay me to stay in it!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the hotel"
Great Hotel, liked the indoor experience, everyone nice people. Only wished the pool opened earlier.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent for the price"
The hotel on the outside looks shady - but there are room on the inside if the hotel which was a relief. The pools were nice, we have a 21 month old so we webt in the kiddie pool. It was 1'3" and closed off from the others so we didn't have to worry. The kiddie pool needed to be cleaned, it didn't seem like it had a filter. The hotel was quiet and for […] the purpose of our stay, it was fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel good but needs work"
The hotel was nice on the front side but still needed work. The back of the hotel looked like a run down ghetto. The back door was always proped open so the security is not good at all. The rooms were decent around the pool area but wouldnt want to stay in the rooms on the back or outside. The pool was nice. The tiki bar seemed to never hardly be open […] even during happy hour. The free breakfast was not that good and they shut the breakfast down at 9am during the week. By 8am the there is not much food besides crusty eggs. Eat early if you want anything. Weekends are a little better. The prices are ridiculous at the hotel I saved $20 a night through hotels.com Casino next door Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place but bad pool hours"
This hotel is nice but the only thing I didn't like is that check out is at 11 and the pool doesn't open until 10 so my kids barely had time to swim in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was overall good. Not as clean as i would of liked. At 9:00 in the morning housekeeping tried to come the room and clean. :((Genuine Expedia guest review
"Absolutely NOTHING good to say."
Upon arrival, we had to have the front desk attendant bring a vacuum cleaner to clean the floor. The sheets had to be changed due to being STAINED, we had to buy anti-bacterial wipes in order to wipe down the sink, tub, and toilet, and just about everything else that we would come into contact with. The air conditioner began actually cooling over a […] half hour after it was turned on. Breakfast was stopped at 9:15 a.m. rather than 10:00 a.m., and the attendant working the breakfast bar did not speak English. (I embrace and advocate diversity, but if a person is an immigrant, I feel they should be able to be fluent in English, especially if they are going to service the customer) The manager (Danielle) was RUDE, when I called in to voice my concerns regarding my stay and did not display any customer service skills whatsoever in dealing with me. In fact, she hung up on me after declaring "This conversation is over." Overall, the attitude of the hotel was: " you paid, we have your money--have a nice day." Howard Johnson's used to have a reputation for being the standards by which all other hotels were judged. This specific hotel bearing the name and displaying the brand proves that that is no longer the case, at least to my family and myself in certain particular situations. Absolutely the worst hotel in terms of cleanliness, repair, and customer service that I have ever witnessed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
