Howard Johnson Cornwall
Ranked #12 of 12 Hotels in Cornwall
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This motel was disgusting. The parking lot was filthy, the outside of the building had stuff splashed all over it. The bed was ancient, the room smelled, there was some type of rodent in the back parking lot. After viewing all of that we opted to leave and stay elsewhere. DO NOT even consider staying at this motel.

We stayed in a room with two queen sized beds. The room was in a good condition with new mattresses. The staff at the front desk was professional. We had a good nights sleep and in the morning the free continental breakfast was great. The place is reasonably priced and it has good service. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The location of the hotel is also very good.

We read the previous reviews and had our doubts about staying here. We checked out the offered room and found it small with one bed, table and 2 chairs, aircon, fresh smelling, new rug, bathroom in good shape, free WiFi in the room, lots of channels on TV, reading lamps both sides of bed, clock, bar fridge, complimentary soap & shampoo. free continental breakfast... all for $59.95... not bad in high season.

The hotel has seen better days, but it appears that they are working on it. The lobby was tired, but did not small. The inner hallway was gloomy. You can park your car outside your room's outer door. There is also an inner door which leads to the central hallway. Consider this place if you are on a tight budget. The Econo Lodge in on "the strip" leading to the USA bridge, and we would recommend you check in and then drive straight down to the river and walk/bike along the lovely park.

Room Tip: When you come off the 401 highway heading south towards the USA bridge, notice their billboard on th...

Me and a few friends have recently stayed in this hotel, we found it very welcoming as the receptionist greeted us will a nice warm speech. The receptionist made us feel at home, She was so sweet & helped us with every need. Our 3 night stay were Amazing as she took care of us like a Mother would take care of her children . This hotel is the place to be, sure the rooms are small but there cozy and bathroom is very nice But Small. Any problem we had the receptionist took care of it. I Honestly Like this Hotel because it's very welcoming & The Receptionist seems to make it an even better stay. She honestly deserves an Award for all the hard Work she puts into her job, She really knows how to brighten your day when your having a bad one. I highly recommend this hotel !!!
I look forward to another stay ...
Thank You Econo Lodge !!

Other than the good price, I can not think of any reason why anyone should stay in this hotel.

At check-in there was a sign on the counter indicating that receptionist was down the hall. I went into the hall and there was no one, all the doors were closed and there was no one. I went back to to the counter and rang the bell. Still no one. Finally, five minutes later someone came to check me in.

The non-smoking room smelt like an ash-tray. The air conditioner did not work, the room was warm as it was 30 degrees Celsius outdoors. The TV was off-coloured to the red spectrum. The wall paper in the room was peeling. Cigarette butts littered the sidewalk of exterior access to the room. To get ice you need to find the receptionist as the ice machine is behind the front desk. I could go on...

The, so called, free breakfast was a joke! Serving from 7am to 9am (a small time-frame). Choice of white/brown bread. No spread was available. Fig Newtons and those tiny powder topped dry donuts were the other edibles (if you can call them that). Orange juice and coffee were the drinkables.
Hanging above the breakfast serving table was a sign indicating that if you want seconds or have a guest, a charge of $4.95 will be added to your room bill. I standing there thinking to myself that this breakfast isn't even worth $0.50 - who in there right mind is going to pay $4.95?

I would avoid this place, drive in either direction along Brookdale and find something else.

Room Tip: Avoid all together!

Stayed here April 2012. Truly terrible. Arrived at 2am after an all day drive. Message at the locked reception said if you arrive after midnight pick up the phone and it will be answered promptly. Called it and let in ring for 5 minutes - no answer. Kept trying over the course of 30 minutes. Finally answered. Dazed receptionist was either on something or had just taken something. Gave me a non smoking room that smelled of smoke. Toilet smelled like it had just been used. Awful. Woke up after 3 hours and just carried on driving - daren't even try breakfast. I would have better saving the $70 and sleeping in the car.

Room Tip: Don't do it.
