“NICE PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

During July 2013, on our way to Montreal we decided to stay in Cornwall for a night being a long drive to Quebec City. Indeed, we had a memorable stay. The room was large with two cozy queen size beds and a fridge, that in fact added to overall comfort as we had some eatables. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, and the location is central with just about all the best restaurants in the vicinity. Complimentary, always-on, high-speed wireless internet was my favourite. We will definitely stay in this hotel on our way back because for the price they charge is very competitive. This hotel has everything we wished. We admire the management and operations behind the show.

We were shocked to see the condition of this Howard Johnson motel - it needs an update and renovation to step out of the 60's. We didn't take off our shoes in the room (carpets were old and dirt stained) and the tub faucet in our room was spraying out the back when you turned on the shower. Shame on the Howard Johnson chain...no excuse for these conditions. Not recommended by our family.

I read the reviews after I booked so I was pleasantly surprised with a nice clean room. The decor meaning the drapes and curtains have been updated but yes this is a late 70s hotel. The room smelt fine but the rest of the hotel smells like cigarettes which a smoker would not pick up. It looks to me that the hotel has been purchased by an inexperienced owner. The beds are not made correctly and they have tried to save with less staff. The breakfast would have been much better if someone was there to keep things clean and refilled More attention needs to be given to where the food is laid out for food safety hotel was cheap and was good for a one night stop over. The owners are trying and just need to learn the ropes

In my experiences with hotels they should be at par or better, with the inflated prices, than your home. This felt like I stayed in an abandoned building. There were stains on our towels and blankets, the sheets were wrinkly, they felt like cheese cloth against your skin, there were hairs on the floors and gunk on our toilet seat, our blackout blinds even had holes in them! And it smelt like a drunks cologne. This hotel needs renovations badly!

Pulled in and the lone staff member was sitting out front with locals at a picnic table smoking. Check in was fairly quick. The room and bedding appeared clean, but there was a strong moldy smell which did not go away. Upon entering the interior hallways I was thrown back to a bad apartment building from the 70's. All bad and filthy carpet. Even the wall décor was sketchy. When calling the desk to ask for assistance with the non-working air conditioning there was no answer because... you guessed it.. the employee was out front having a smoke. Later, when we were looking for ice we had to approach the front desk. Again, she came in from her smoke and scooped us a bucket of ice. She did come to our room to assist with the air conditioning, but was unable to fix it. In the morning when we proceeded to the breakfast room for the included breakfast, the employee was still there. The breakfast was so lacking that we had to go out to a local restaurant which was an added expense that we had not anticipated. Very disappointing hotel.

I was in Cornwall for a 3 day convention. I was so disappointed. Never again. The state of the room was pityful. The carpet were dirty, the vents of the air conditioner were full of mold. The free breakfast....mold muffins, even on the bread. Air-conditioning wasn't working at all in certains rooms. We had 2 shortages of electricity due apparently due to usage of hair dryer.

So if you decide to go there well dont say we didn't warn you....

Room Tip: GO TO SUPER 8....I visit the room and it's clean, worth your money.

We booked this hotel online needing a stop over in Cornwall, it was reasonably priced and there were not many options. We relied on the Howard Johnson brand for minimum standard but were disappointed with the facility. Rooms are small, outdated and not very clean. It had been years since I worried about sleeping in a hotel bed, this place will give you that feeling. The hallways are small and cluttered with inoperative pop machines? There are no amenities to speak of. They advertise a queen bed but they are only doubles and the mattresses are as dated as the rest of it.

We rated this a 2 as they did provide wifi and a breakfast (dining room is as bad as the rest of the hotel), the sheets seemed clean and it was quiet (albeit there were many empty rooms). It was properly priced at $80 for the night, not worth a penny more.
