5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

After reading so many negative reviews, I was hesitant to book here. But we are travelling with 2 dogs and I wanted to stay near the Falls area. So our choices were limited. The experience was all positive. Nice people at front desk, huge room with microwave and fridge, table and 2 chairs, clean and quiet. Free Parking. There was a huge area in back for walking the dogs. It was a ten minute walk to the falls. The state park allows dogs on leash so we could take them with us. Breakfast went til 10 and checkout was at noon. The room showed wear and tear but everything worked. I would definitely stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Our room, although efficient, convenient, and clean, was/is in need of being updated. We stayed for two days/nights. We were perplexed as to why the room was not cleaned, coffee re-supplied, and why towels, soap and other bath items were not re-supplied. As far as the room itself, we have no major complaints.. ideal location to the falls, and other attractions made our stay at HoJo very good.

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write a review of our hotel online. I am very happy you found the Howard Johnson in Niagara Falls, NY to have efficient, convenient and clean rooms. I am also glad you found our proximity to the falls and major attractions a bonus. Our housekeeping staff cleans and resupplies all rooms on a daily basis unless the guest requests no service. I am sorry your room was not resupplied with fresh towels and amenities. I spoke with the head housekeeper to ensure this does not happen in the future. I am glad you had a good stay with us and will direct your comments to ownership. Thank You.
