Howard Johnson Inn North Bay
Ranked #15 of 26 Hotels in North Bay
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

An older hotel found on hotline.com rated a 3star but in reality it was more like a 1.5 or a 2 @ the most. Usually a 3 star rating is for a Holliday Inn....When we I opened the pullout bed their was allot of crumbs and food in the sheets.I m not comming back here

great value but the rooms are sub-par. my room felt damp and stunk of stale smoke.
the comforters they had wreaked of cigarettes, i had to pull a blanket out of the car for my 2 year old to sleep with.
washrooms had rust stains all over.. could see mold around tub and sink.
i guess you get what you pay for.

There for one night. Comfortable bed and clean sheets. No heat got out of shower when water turn hot because someone was using cold in another room. Dirty face cloth found in bathroom drawer. Bath at on yellow side but smelled fresh. Mold around tub. No shampoo.. Very 60's decor. No comment on free breakfast because I had to leave early. You get what you pay for. I'd go back if I had no choice.

Room Tip: No pool. Small city. Your 15 minutes to anywhere.

Overall, i got a pretty good value from the 1 night stay. For $85, you cant really ask for more. Once you realize that its a motel and not a jotel, my mistake for not realizing that prior to booking, you cant really ask for more. My room was clean, tv and microwave worked just fine, and great service from the front desk.

This hotel was a really good value for our money. The manager on duty was very nice to us and helpful with any issues that we had. We got upgraded to a king size bed and there was a nice LCD TV in the room. It was clean and relatively quiet. It's not a high-class hotel, but for the money it was certainly more than adequate. If I'm ever up there again, I'd definitely stay there and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good cheap, clean place to stay!
