The parking area is horribly rutted and there is only 1 light out back, so you need your cars headlights to see to unlock ground level door. The rooms are really small, but clean. The same with the bath room. The paint is peeling off the bathroom ceiling. The worst of all, the sheets were stained. I never thought I... More

Comfortable room with all the basics. A little hard to find as there is only a small sign by the road and the building exterior is stark.

The staff were very pleasant. But the entire first floor had a disturbing toxic smell I halls and rooms. By 2 am we were having difficulty breathing and headaches. We ended up after hours of request moving to an u renovated room upstairs. They noted they spray the building every six months. And they had had an ant problem. Well... More

Stayed at the Howard Johnson in Sarnia for a week while relocating for work. The hotel offered reliable internet, and affordable rates. Located near many restaurants and a short trip away from the city center, the Howard Johnson was very good.

Our room was damp. The a/c didn't work and it was 30 degrees out. Called and asked to be moved to a unit with a/c but we're brought a fan instead. We stayed 2 nights and housekeeping didn't even make the beds. The bathroom had no fan and was disgustingly humid. The fixtures were rusting due to so much humidity.... More

The front desk staff are wonderfully friendly and you will find them in a very nice, clean nicely decorated front lobby. The rooms are not quite so updated. The one we got was small with 2 double beds that where comfortable. A nice perk was the microwave and fridge in the room which did come in handy for our dog... More
