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

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

Older hotel that is showing it's age. Carpets were dirty and fraying, bathtub was chipped and stained. Everything seemed as clean as they could get it, it just needs updating. Beds were comfortable, room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker included. Had the best chicken quesadilla ever in the restaurant. Complimentary breakfast was a choice of 9 different options...

Never could connect to facebook or anything else. Mattresses are old & should be thrown out. The only good thing I have to say about this hotel is they... More

We had to wait for our room and staff was not very helpful. We got the "dog" room, but it was clean and in order. The bathtub was very old and plastic. We can recommend the breakfast, it was very good.
