I had recently stayed at Howard Johnsons (Fort Howe) and thought it was great. Staff were very welcoming and availalbe. My next visit to SJ is next month and my reservations have already been made to stay there again with the family. It is so close and convenient to everything. I had a great view of the harbour!! Can't wait... More

Recently stayed here and was pleasantly surprised. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was nice and overlooked the city. They offer a free made to order breakfast which was very good. We will not hesitate to visit this hotel again on our next trip.

We were welcomed by helpful and knowledgeable front desk staff that provided us with trip ideas and directions. The hotel is clean and well maintained for the era. Our room was comfortable, clean and the housekeeping staff clearly take pride in the day to day running and service provided. Our maid was a most pleasant young lady. We particularly enjoyed...

My boyfriend and I stayed here and had a great time. We had an amazing view of the water and city. The room was bigger than we expected, the bathroom clean and big, we had a lovely time having drinks down at the new restaurant and then relaxed in the quiet hot tub! Great price and we would definitely stay... More

I always stay at The Howard Johnson when I travel back to SJ to visit friends and have been doing so for years. Rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly, and I find it very convenient to have a restaurant attached to the hotel. The complimentary breakfast is a great plus, I recommend the eggs benedict. My last stay... More

My family was there for three nights and it was completely ridiculous from starts of Inshas. The first room we were in was dirty and smelled of smoke and had bizarre stains all over the carpet. The restaurant was simply too much. The tacky Vegas theme, the dirty silverware, the disgusting food and the unacceptable wait time were only topped... More

Too much hair on the blankets on the bed, and in the pool, and too much weird old dirt and stains for me. The whole time I was there I was wishing I was somewhere else. The restaurant was bellow average. The staff were all very pleasant.

The 'new" restaurant - Vegas is as chintzy as it gets. I would be embarrassed to bring anyone here from out of town. My husband wanted the steak special _ $ 5.00 with a drink. He had a decent meal, but that's where it ends. Everything else on the menu was way over priced, probably to make up for the... More

I used to love this restaurant when it was the Hojo it was real food for good prices. Now that it has changed over to the Vegas restaurant NOT so impressed. It seems like all they care about is the 5.00 steak special. Well.......I wouldn't want to pay anymore than 5.00 dollars for it. (they are so cheap on the... More
