Howard Johnson's has remodeled since my last visit. The lobby is expanded and includes a fireplace and glass wall to separate the pool from the front desk. All employees were professional, friendly, and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the large seating area at breakfast. Internet connection was not great.

Annual trip to UNOH and once again a good visit at the Howard Johnson. Had to make a few changes with UNOH to make certain I stayed here again. But, it was worth the effort to make the changes. Breakfast is always good and the rooms are always clean. My friend had the opportunity to stay closer to the college... More

15 hotels in 15 days and this one I made sure to make notes on. On review I see: rude desk, only one towel in bathroom (!), room very dark, unworkable desk are. This purports to be a deluxe hotel, with a huge atrium no less. Seems welcoming - not. Nothing special about the room, hotel security escorting a homeless... More

My husband and I drove from San Diego, CA to Ohio to visit our family. After several days of driving, we were totally exhausted. The weather was brutal and we had been driving for hours though torrential rains. When we finally arrived here, the parking lot was mostly underwater, but we found a spot that was on higher ground and... More

The only reason I don't rate it a 5 is because there is no longer a hot tub. The photos online show an indoor pool and hot tub, the hot tub has since been floored over and a table and chairs now reside there. The rooms were clean. The poolside room was very nice. The atrium is relaxing with lots... More

Went for a family reunion and it was great to be able to have a nice clean and comfortable room to come back to. And to have a nice breakfast before we left.

Working at a plant in Lima on night shift, staff is very accommodating with early check in, late check out, and cleaning the room after 5pm. Really appreciate the late shift and all they do to keep us comfortable. ;)

If your only memories of Howard Johnson is orange and teal, forget it! This is a lovely property and definitely worth the trip. To start, the rate is far less than what we've paid at similarly featured hotels. The lobby and pool and entertainment areas are spacious and lovely. The onsite lounge was a welcome sight. The room was spacious,... More

Billiards, ping-pong, air hockey in lobby. Great for teens! Pool, sauna and exercise were clean & well-maintained. Hot breakfast WAY better than standard at other hotels. Clean comfortable room and pleasant, quiet lobby for reading. This hotel was ideal. Wish we had been staying a few more relaxing days!
