I knew we were in trouble when we drove up! Ever get the feeling that something isn't going to be good....this was it. Checked in, got to our room and the smell was unbelievable, asked to be moved, checked 3 or 4 other room and finally decided on one. Once in the new room noticed the pillows were stained asked...

Not even sure where to begin. There was a large group of us and so had quite a few rooms. The first thing we did was check for bed bugs!! Ironically when asked others, every single room did the same thing. Thankfully nobody saw any and the sheets looked clean. So that would be a plus. Was really noisy in... More

We do not recommend. The room was tiny, dark and you could see light around the door to the outside. Everything was worn and / or stained. Not worth the money. Pillows were so thin you needed 3 but there was only one. Our room was on the ground floor facing a back parking lot/alleyway

Stay at Howard Johnson Inn Downtown for a weekend for 2 nights with my husband and kids and it was a wonderful stay. Our room was clean and smelled good. Wireless internet worked fine and continental breakfast saved our family $25 every mornings. This hotel has best staff I have ever come across. Every time I needed somethingThey always offered...

Used secret saver to find this hotel, never again. The place is terrible and I strongly suggest that it is not good value even at the discounted price. This is the type of hotel that can ruin a holiday. Room smelled and was dirty, tv did not work properly, staff were not helpful, they sent me to the wrong room,... More

I was checking the hotels on my laptop & comparing prices and saw Howard Johnson Inn. I decided to take a look and 5 mins later I reached there. I parked my car. I booked the room and decided...

We spent one night in Kamloops to split the drive from Banff to Vancouver. While there were rooms “on the hill” for literally double the price, we went budget for this stopover. The front desk help was friendly enough and the lobby was neat. Our room was on the ground floor at the rear of the building, literally right off... More
