Great staff and clean, comfortable rooms. We were treated well by the staff, and they took care of us when we needed to make a change to our stay. Breakfast was plain, but there was more than enough food. It's not the fanciest hotel I've stayed at, but it was just what we needed for the night.

Yes I'm a tourist driving the Alaskan highway. Shouldn't have stopped here. Motel is next to oil workers trailer park. Parking lot and streets full of loud noisy diesel trucks. This might as well be a northern Texas. Motel is expensive for what it is, but ok. If you are desperate and tired and they aren't full of oil workers,... More

I will preface this review by mentioning that I know it's difficult to get staff in small towns which may be why the manager of this HoJos felt he could treat customers so rudely but it was still shocking. He ran the credit card without asking, he claimed not to realize that he hadn't charged the same rate we had... More

Thanks for staying at Howard Johnson Hotel. I am sorry for that situation. When you booked two rooms, you asked the senior discount for both rooms. One guest was not senior at check in. Please understand that we can give a senior discount to only seniors. Thank you. Best Regards, Hotel Manager Solomon Yi. More

Great place to stay. Large room & excellent continental breakfast. Very clean and staff very friendly. Fort Saint John is very new looking and busy with the gas and oil production. We would visit again and travel back by way Chetwynd for the terrific scenery.

There are far better hotels in FSJ then this one... I'd recommend a hotel closer to town, with much better facilities and rooms. The hotel manager "Solomon", was not easy to deal with and lied about the room rate over the phone, only to charge a higher price on check out. Bottom line, do not stay here and you will... More
