    Location

    Front staff service - having to wait to check out while the 3 employees conversed. None were on the phone and there where no other customers in the lobby. The room cleanliness - when the bedding has hairs from another guest still in it and the bathroom had only a half roll of toilet paper in it, I find it insulting. Will NOT stay here again

    Felt the staff were overly suspicious and accusational regarding payment and the age of those staying in the room; took offense to this.

    Only good thing was that there was a flat screen tv with a Shaw cable box. Breakfast was fair especially as compared to the state of the facility.

    One of the worst hotel/motel I've stayed in the past 25 years. And I stayed in some dives while I was a student, this is right up with those dives. Facility looks as though it needed a renovation 10 years ago. External hallways/ceiling have peeling paint, stained outdoor carpeting, broken shower curtain, rooms with a peculiar/foul odour, noisy air conditioner, non-sound proof rooms, mediocore firmness in mattresses, old bed covering. Overall, has the atmosphere and feel of a rent-by-hour motel. We needed to move from one room to another room because during the night, there was a rain storm and we had water dripping onto our bed. We were moved into the next room, but, my confidence in the front staff relaying the information to maintenance (or in this case a roofer) is minimal. Do yourself a favour, only book this place if it's a choice of sleeping in your car versus on a bed. Shame on Howard Johnson on having their name/reputation associated with this facility. I for one will not book a Howard Johnson Express hotel ever again without doing much more due diligence.

    Absolutely nothing!

    It was very dirty! They took a deposit off my credit card for room damages...but, when you get up to the room everything is very questionable and outdated! Even the repairs that were done to the room was very poor. Everything was falling apart. The breakfast consists of fake orange juice and old peanut butter with stale cereal. Would give this a lower rating...but, this is the lowest it will allow.

    Was not happy with anything.

    I didn't like being cursed at by the reception because I wanted to read the details before signing in. I only stayed there for two hours. The bed it was dirty and the whole building was stinky and dirty. I asked for my money back but did not receive it.
