1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We didn't have a lot to go on so we got this hotel but they were willing to allow a pet and had a room so we took it. Big mistake. The room was dirty - there were stains on the carpet and sheets. The bathroom was in bad shape. We asked for two extra towels because there were four people, and the clerk was reluctant to give us towels. They also quoted a price over the phone then changed it when we got there late at night with few options,
The breakfast area wasn't kept up well - it had a fridge that didn't close properly for milk, a couple of types of cereal and a small coffee maker. I'd rather they just said no breakfast.

Room Tip: Check the room before deciding to stay

I will never stay there again.. Over charge when you check out .. Nothing works in rooms AC or heat non existence .. Better deals at other hotels.. Your choice but staying there is a bad choice..you can form your own opinion if you stay there.. For a Howard Johnson if there at all similar I would rather sleep in my vehicle

My fiance and I pulled into this small town called Hearst late at night and got directions from another motel clerk to the HoJo which was just off the main strip. We were travelling through in a snow storm in January coming from Windsor back to Winnipeg. It was after 1am when we got to the moteland we were exhausted. We were greeted by an extremely friendly night manager, despite the hour we arrived at his establishment. He warmly welcomed us and made us feel at home after a very long day of winter storm driving. Our room was very clean and well kept. He offered us pretty much anything that we needed including a hot bath in the jacuzzi tub in our room!!! What a pleasant gentleman he was and such a welcomed rest in a very comfortable room.
Thank you so much for your hospitality!!!

Room Tip: Main floor room have easier access to unload luggage and closer to vehicle.

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.
