Howard Johnson Inn Gananoque
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Gananoque
Reviewed July 21, 2010

Went to Gananoque for our wedding anniversary- arrived late but offered the jacuzzi suite. The room was on the second floor - we had to enter through a stairwell that was totally cluttered with supplies, renovation materials and other equipment. The carpet leading upstairs was extremely dirty as was the carpet in the room. The room was extremely hot (air had not been on) and took hours to cool. There was left over crackers and chips behind the nightstands and under bed. The bath had just been renovated-mildew was on all tiles in shower and the toilet rocked when in use. Don't dare remove footwear to walk on flooring! Never again!

This place is ok if your needing a place to sleep for one night. I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay. Fairly clean but I did find some food in the freezer left by the previous guest.

You get what you pay for, so if you're looking for a clean, comfortable, functional hotel with no frills, then this one is absolutely fine. Typical motel-style layout - the rooms are in separate blocks and we were able to park right outside our room door.

We only stayed one night but the queen size bed was comfortable, the room was clean and in good condition and we were set far enough back from the main road to not be bothered by any traffic noise. There were a few marks in the hand-basin and bath - not dirty, just slight signs of wear and tear. The room was supplied with a fridge and coffee maker but no microwave - no problem as we ate out in a restaurant (15 min walk or 3 min drive to the "centre" of town). The room also had a large flat-screen TV mounted on the wall, with a reasonable selection of cable channels.

A continental-style breakfast was available in the lobby area of the hotel reception block (not included in our room rate) but we didn't try it so can't comment on the quality.

This was a simple and comfortable hotel, perfectly adequate for our needs and completely in line woth our expectation for a 2 star hotel.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights to celebrate Valentine's Day. The room was large and clean, and we paid the CAA rate of $79.00/night which was a good deal. The room had a king size bed, medium size bar fridge, and a large wall mounted flat screen tv. There was no microwave. The rate included a continental breakfast, but we didn't take advantage of it , so I can't comment on the quality.
The room was located behind the main office well off the main street, so it was very quiet.
Local phone calls were free, but no phone book was provided.
Nice place, but nothing fancy either. The room was recently redecorated by the look of the bathroom flooring and tiles, but they didn't take the trouble to change the sink which had rusty spots in it that they tried to hide with enamel but it didn't work.
Good spot for the price.
