Love this hotel. Very good breakfast bar, and staff is always friendly. I didn't check to see if they applied the rewards I earned on this stay. I hope they did.

Several of our employees stayed the night and were very impressed with the rooms. I would highly recommend the HoJo in Lima to host your next... More

I can't say enough great things about the Howard Johnson in Lima. We have held several events in the banquet rooms and I have also attended a few weddings there as well. I have been to other Howard Johnson hotels and none of them compare to this one. I felt like I was at a Holiday Inn; the layout is... More

I have attended a variety of business meetings at the Lima HoJo, and am always pleased with the quiet atmosphere and friendly service. The hotel lobby is inviting and everything has a clean presence. The meeting rooms accommodate many, if not all, of our meeting/convention needs. I would recommend the HoJo for any business meeting or event.

We had a Christmas party at the Howard Johnson In Lima,Ohio. It was an amazing time. The staff kept up with drink orders from the bar, the food was good, and the banquet room was nothing short of spectacular. They had the tables decorated with nice table clothes, and the wait staff was at our disposal. They took care of... More

I stayed at the Lima Howard Johnson for business a few weeks back, and I will NOT make that mistake again. At first glance the hotel lobby look ok, I understand it is a former Holiday Inn/Holidome, so indoor pool, rooms looking over pool/courtyard area, again, not too bad. I then got to my room. First, I went into the... More

Stopped on our way to Florida. Very nice hotel with great center pool and activity area. Pool was nice and warm unlike other hotels where you freeze as soon as you get in. Friendly staff and nice clean room. Will be on our list to return here.
