The Howard Johnson Lima is where I usually stay, when I'm in town for business. I like the location, the quality of the rooms, and the staff. Sometimes it can be difficult to reserve a room due to availability, so I try make my reservations as far in advance as possible.

Hello Mark, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I appreciate you choosing to stay with us each time you are in town. It can be difficult to book a room with us at times. We have a lot of loyal guests who stay with us and we sell out quite often. I think that is a great... More

Just recently checked out of this HJ from an extended stay. I would recommend this hotel to both long term and overnight guest for multiple reasons. 1) Costs: Not the cheapest hotel at this I-75 exit (#125) but also not the most expensive. 2) Cleanliness: My most important factor when renting, HJ Lima was very clean and without any dank...

This Howard Johnson used to be a Holiday Inn, and still quite resembles it. Interior facing rooms (we had one) have balconies that face into a large atrium that holds an indoor pool and games area. Looked very nice. Breakfast in the morning was hot and more than adequate. Room was clean, and bed was comfy. Will definitely stay there... More

This hotel has a nice set up with a pool, game room and table tennis located in the middle of the hotel. There is also a cafe for the guests to get food. It's great to be able to watch kids right from your room but.... The hotel is old and I had to switch my room three times do... More

Thanks for the review of our hotel. I see that your stay with us was nearly one year ago. I would love to invite you back to our hotel to check out the changes. I was unaware of any mold or mildew issues in our hotel but I think you would be happy to see the $400,000 bathroom remodeling project... More

We stayed for 5 nights. Everyday our bed was made and fresh towel was in the bathroom. The cleaning crew was very nice and friendly as well as the staff. We would gladly stay there again! I would recomend this HOJO to anyone.

The HoJo Lima is one of those grand conference centers from yesteryear. You know the type; huge covered center courtyard with acres of arguably wasted space -pretty to look at, but not revenue producing, and *often* very run down. This property is a surprising exception as it's very well maintained, clean, and smells fresh -no nasty carpet anywhere. Room 232... More
