“a cool surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

After my truck broke down in a small town called Hearst on a cold winter night .I had no choice but to get a room right away and then i was directed to Hojo by my mechanic.I was not expecting the kind of hotel in a small place with so many amenities , cleanliness and well maintained.
i recommend this to all my friends to stay here and enjoy things like free wifi to a steam shower.
I stop here quite frequently now and every time i feel at home. happy new year!

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.

Due to my pleasant experience in 2010,I again decided to stay at the same place,
The room was very spacious and clean included fridge and microwave, I found the place to be more welcoming peaceful and well maintained, as my experience had been wonderful, will come back for sure".

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, off the main street, more than made up for these deficiencies. The continental breakfast was basic but adequate. In contrast to another reviewer who didn't like the use of big jars for jam, I thought this was a more environmentally friendly way to have these. I think you have to trust that people are going to use them with the same regard for hygiene as they would at home.

I've been very well welcomed, and had a very large room with all the comfort. At as low a price as very simple rooms I had along my trip through Canada ! I'll come back without hesitation ! Just make sure you know where it is situated from the main street.
