The hotel wasn't horrible. I was upset that I was put in a room where the television didn't work though. Also, one of the people at the front desk made a rude remark about how I didn't pay the full price because I found a discount price online. Also, I was suppose to receive a $50 rebate from TripAdvisor for... More

The stay was great and serviced it's purpose. Our family was over for a wedding and this was a convenient place to stay, we don't have any complaints about the room or the breakfast, the only thing I really did not appreciate was the service I receive at check out time.. I mean I am a very patient person and... More

Surprised by just how great this hotel was and comfortable the stay. I was placed in a double king room that also has coffee and micro fridge. Comfortable bed, decent shower, friendly helpful staff, and a true full, delicious breakfast. WiFi was strong. Easy access to highway and everything Yakima. I've stayed in Yakima many times, but I think this... More

Let me just say: I think that if you book thru a discount hotel service (Hotwire, Expedia, etc), you are automatically entered in the "don't worry about which room we put them in" category. I have read some other reviews and it seems that there is a good difference between the two buildings at HoJo. We stayed in the detached... More

It's a solid choice for staying in Yakima where pickings are slim. Near the convention center and the Sundome. Short drive to river park and dog park. They allow dogs, but charge an $15/night extra and the pet rooms are in the annex. We opted to keep our pup in the car overnight. We paid $85/night on Priceline. Can't beat... More

I figured that staying at a national chain like Howard Johnson wouldn't be that bad, i was sorely mistaken. This property in Yakima has not been touched or remodeled since the day they cut the ribbon. It is beyond tired and could pass for any movie set that wants a 70's style. There is/was also a terrible odor throughout the... More
