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

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.

My only complaint would be that I couldn't find a place to plug in the fridge in the room, but since we had no use for it anyway, this wasn't a problem. Also there was no convenient place to plug in the clock supplied so I put it in the bathroom. But the fact that the room was so quiet,... More
