We were planning to stay for 13 nights. We asked the front desk staff for a different room, closer to the pool. He had bad attitude and he was mean. We cancelled twelve nights and only stayed that night. Everything else about the hotel was ok, except this guy.

First impression of the hotel was OMG it looks awful. We arrived at the hotel at 2:00pm on a 95 degree day. Was told my room was not ready. Left my number with front desk to call when room was ready. I wasnt offered to use the amenities such as the pool. When I was finally able to check in... More

I called yesterday to book a room for a night in August. Two of my friends are getting married and this is the hotel they had blocked rooms. The woman on the phone was not helpful. I asked if I could book a room from the blocked section that the bride and groom had gotten. I even gave her the... More

I came to Kent because I wanted to watch the Royals-Mariners game. I checked in (quickly thanks to the staff) and was able to get to the game early. When I returned at 11:00 pm, I dropped off to sleep after watching the news. I woke up rested, ate a continental breakfast, and headed back to Portland on an enjoyable... More

The Howard Johnson in Kent Wa. was comparable to a Motel 6 at best. It was way over priced, very old, dirty, poor excuse for a breakfast the desk help kept saying they could not help us because they were new and the manager was on vacation. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unfortunately there is nothing good to say about this stay. Based on pictures on web site I did not expect for it to be this horrible. The area where hotel is located is to be desired, full of loiters. Also, the hotel caters to a transient population. In our room the cover had holes, the tub had mildew and carpets... More
