Worst internet ever ! 10-15 minutes to load a page Were woken up twice by the fire alarm, there was a glitch in their system Room decor and beds were dated For a smoke free hotel, you could smell smoke in the hallways Positive sides: Breakfast was good Close enough to downtown

We had booked a smoke-free room with two king beds for our stay. When we got there and were given our room, we dragged all our stuff up to the 8th floor but as soon as we got off the elevator we could tell this was a smoking floor and when we walked in the room it was even worse.... More

I would not recommend this hotel! It is old and out dated! Our bathroom shower had minimal water pressure, with the water temperature fluctuating between ice cold and boiling hot every 10 seconds. On a positive note, the staff were all friendly and helpful!

The lobby of this hotel is average. Service is also average. Our room has a view facing St. Johns Bay. Also, we have a good view of a big sign "St. Johns" on top of the hill. Wireless internet is weak. It gets better early in the morning. Newspaper is free too. We were on the 8th floor of the... More

My 90 year old mom along with two ladies in their 60’s wanted to do a 10 day trip inexpensively to PEI in Canada from New York. I was the organizer and chauffer. The entire trip cost about 1k, excluding van rental and fuel. This trip was all about sightseeing, eating good seafood and inexpensive lodging; this motel fit the... More

We live in Moncton area and take many mini geocaching vacations to maritime locations every year. We have essentially avoided Saint John because we could not find a hotel we liked. We wanted a hotel with a reasonable rate, which was clean, had reliable wifi. We also wanted a pool so we could relax after long days hiking and bushwacking.... More

The Howard Johnson Fort Howe was in a good location, and had a very good continental breakfast program. However, the hotel had a very musty odor to it, and when I went to check laundry facilities on the 3rd floor you could very clearly smell cigarette smoke as soon as the elevator doors opened. Now every room has a sign... More

Yes it is dated but; our spacious, quiet room #323 had a clean comfortable bed. The tub had a rubber stopper, so I had a shower instead of a bath. Every staff we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We had a 20 min. walk to the restaurants on the waterfront. ( We passed the Hilton 15 mins walk). For... More

This hotel was not our first choice or 1 through 6 it was one that had two rooms for our group to stay for two nights. The rooms are dated and have a musty smell. The elevator is slow and really old getting to the 5th floor was a adventure. The hotel also doubles as a group home for folks... More

Upon registering I was told there was a planned power outage at midnight until 5 am, ok, maybe that can't be helped but I should have guessed that this wasn't going to be a great stay. Upon entering room I noticed everything was very dated although it appeared clean. Bathroom had dirty grout in tub & tub itself was obviously... More
