The rooms were very comfortable and... More

Bad: Very old and run-down. Room was musty. Clean, but had smeared mosquitos on the wall. Wifi was bad - would disconnect me every 30 minutes or so - difficult as I was there to work. Fine: Customer service person was quick and efficient, no issues on check in. Room was on main floor, back side of hotel, enter from... More

When we got there the Howard Johnson was the only hotel that had vacancy and from what we knew it has a fairly good... More

One of the few times I have walked into a hotel room and asked myself, what have got myself into?? The room itself looked like something out of the 70s but new fixtures. The carpet and wall paper and the bathroom looked like they were 40 years old yet it has new table, organizer, and TV. The sleep was difficult... More

We didn't have a lot to go on so we got this hotel but they were willing to allow a pet and had a room so we took it. Big mistake. The room was dirty - there were stains on the carpet and sheets. The bathroom was in bad shape. We asked for two extra towels because there were four... More

We were travelling through in a snow storm in January coming from Windsor back to Winnipeg. It was after 1am when we got to the moteland we were exhausted.... More

Hi guys my name is Javed and I had a wonderful experience of staying in Howard Johnson. I think Howard Johnson at Hearst is a perfect rest point when you are travelling from Toronto to Winnipeg or Vice Versa. I didn't find the same quality of living even in more expensive hotels on the way.
