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

Great place to stay overnight, very clean. Could use a little more updating. Staff is friendly. Location is convienent to everything. It would be nice if you offered room service, to have the menu in the room.

During my seven weeks of work rehabilitation, I lived at this hotel. The owners and staff made my stay comfortable and fun. I was always greeted with a smile and I was known by my name not just a client. The rooms were clean, the food was good, and if I needed anything, they were willing to assist me. Being... More

On Aug 1 2014 I was unfortunate to get injured at work and due to my injuries I was sent to Saint John NB to begin my rehabilitation. It was hard for myself to be away from home for this length of time in which I spent 7 long weeks as a resident of Fort Howe Plaza. Being away from... More

We when arrived there was a woman smoking at the front door. We had to walk past her and the smoke to get in. I asked the front desk clerk if she was allowed there and was told yes. But the law is clear - 15 feet away from the front - she was wrong. She just didn't want to... More

HoJo's Fort Howe in Saint John became my home away from home during a recent 8 week stay. I was not expecting the experience that unfolded, as it was under difficult circumstances that I checked in for the first time. Mark at the front desk was cool as a cucumber as he managed busy phone lines and constant questions while... More

Needing to go to Saint John for business, we decided to take the children and make a weekend of it. We chose Howard Johnson for 1) indoor pool (and adults only gym) 2) on site restaurant (breakfast is free) 3)room service 4)rooms with mini fridges and microwaves. Upon arriving we found pricing and customer service to be better than expected.... More
