“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We love to stay at Howard Johnson when we are in the Lima area. December in Ohio is cold, but if you ask for a pool view room It is so nice to sit out on the balcony and look over the pool area just like if you were on vacation in a tropical climate. The hot breakfast in the morning is delicious and they serve a variety of food. The room rate is very reasonable and we will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are the best. The first floor rooms have sliding doors that open into the pool area...

Hello Kathy. Thank you so much for taking the time to share you experience with other travelers. I’m glad that we were able to make you forget about the cold December winter outside. Our 4-story glass enclosed tropical atrium can often make guest forget about the harsh weather outside. I happy enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you at our hotel again.

What I thought was going to be just another hotel stay ended up being one that beats all the rest!! I would like to take the time to thank the front desk staff for welcoming me to Lima, Ohio! I am amazed at how "at home" I could feel! This place is truly unbelievable! I highly recommend this hotel if you will be visiting the area!!

My husband and I enjoyed our lil "get away from it all" by staying at the Howard Johnson of Lima! We enjoyed the jacuzzi suite room and the staff was amazing! If we needed anything, they were quick to respond and were super friendly! We will definitely go back there again...it is "our home away from home" favorite place to stay!
