I have stayed at several Howard Johnsons over the past few years and you would think I would have learned my lesson by now. The only good one was in New York City. I stayed one night here in Saskatoon because all the other hotels were booked because the Queen was in the city and what a mistake. The desk clerk on signing in was tattooed and body pierced and wasn't very friendly. He didn't give a sense of trustworthiness on first sight. Both clerks that I encountered were visble minorities who couldn't speak English very well and couldn't even read my names which are one syllable names. The restaurant wasn't open at any time I was there. They were preparing to open it for breakfast the morning I left and that was after 10 a.m. Hello! It should have been open at 7. Most of the guests were gone to the restaurants down the street. The room was old and dated and in need of repair. The whole motel is in need of a major overhaul. I was in a room right across the parking lot from the Travel Lodge and there were parties there all night. At least the people on either side of me were elderly without kids and they were quiet. The bathroom was in need of repair. The shower head didn't work very well and you had to practically run around in the tub to get wet since it sprayed in every direction but down! Water had to run for ten minutes before it got hot..........where was it coming from? Regina? I wouldn't stay here again unless you are a party animal, don't care what the room looks or smells like and don't care if the hotel clerks are biker dudes from Hell! Next time I stay in Saskatoon, it will be the Bessborough for me and leave this dive to the poor folks who can't find a hotel anywhere else in the city(like me this weekend). I guess we all have to step down a class or three once in awhile to appreciate the ones on the bottom.
