Rooms are very clean. Beds very comfortable with duvet bedding. After 12 hours on the road we made an error with online booking. Manager fixed the problem very satisfactorily. Would definitely stay here again. Great service.

The evening desk clerk was very pleasant and helpful. Room was nothing spectacular but it was more than adequate for our needs. We slept good.

Not what I expected, from the cost to the facility. While it was clean and the beds were comfortable, they were ridiculously short staffed. The beds weren't made properly, the fridge didn't work, we had to throw out all if the food we had with us. I'm diabetic and the dogs food. The toasters didn't work right, they got the... More

The Howard Johnson name and brand hold true to this hotel. Everything was exceptional. Beds very comfortable and room super clean. Thank you so much, we lived it! The adjacent restaurant is closed right now, but we went to Mr. Mike's Steakhouse Casual 3 mins away and had a superb meal. Great night here and good desk clerks, very helpful!

My family and I were driving from Alaska to Montana and stayed for one night. We got there late and left early so didn't get to experience much. However, it was convenient to have the diner next door and receive a discount for staying at the hotel. The front desk attendant was friendly but I did have to find her... More

I found this hotel to be very dirty and smelled like an ashtray. People would stand right in front of the front door and smoke. Room serve never showed up.

I stayed at the hotel for two night on business. The staff were excellent and very helpful and the rooms were comfortable and clean. It isn't fancy and could use some maintenance in the washrooms (my shower didn't work well and made strange noises), but overall it is a practical lodging and good for quick, business trips.
