“Reasonable rates and very clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed at the Howard Johnson on a recent visit to see our son at UW-LAX. We were very happy with the facility, especially how clean the room was. The breakfast area was also tidy and well stocked. The cozy room was equipped with a fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The rate was very fair also.

We do get to meet many parents of the students at UWL and this makes our job enjoyable. Many talented and gifted students attend our colleges in La Crosse and I'm always pleased to hear the proud parents share what their kids are going to contribute to the community. Thanks for taking time to let my staff know you appreciate them.

I arrived at the howard johnson at the beginning of january for work. From the start of my stay, the staff has been great! Helpful and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the house keeping did an awesome job keeping them that way. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a good place to stay while in La Crosse.

All In All I Value And Enjoy Everytime I Visit Lacrosse..Its Maybe All The Booze From The Local Bars.. But Even More When I Come To My 2nd Home Which Is The Howard Johnson. The Staff Is Amazing From Jim The Maintenance Men To The Housekeeping Staff Sue, Mary and Kerri etc etc,, To Adam, Emily And Rodney At The Front Desk, Rooms Are Well Comforting, The Atmosphere Is Great.. Everytime I Come Back To Lacrosse I Will Always Reserve A Room At The HOJO!!!

Toilet tank was put on crooked. Door bottom for bathroom was cut and bowed. Faucet handles in the shower did not match. Musty odor in the room. Bathroom floor was "sticky".
Room was clean. Bedding was clean. Internet problems occurred. No decent parking at the front entrance door. Desk staff were friendly and efficient.
