“Better Than Expected”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

This hotel is as they advertise it on their webpage. They're not pretending to be a 5 star hotel, nor are they simply just a motel on the side of the road. They have a restaurant that serves good food, a pool that's always available and rooms that have been upgraded. While the exterior of the building could certainly use some work, don't let that fool you into thinking you won't get a good nights sleep here.

The staff was wonderful. They constantly asked for feedback, provided anything I needed and made the stay very enjoyable overall.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We appreciate your honest out take and acknowledge that there is always room for improvement. Our focus last year was to ensure all our guests received a quality stay and to ensure quality with all our amenities. Our Chef Valenti has definitely done an outstanding job offering a true Italian Cuisine experience at our in-house restaurant meanwhile, our focus this year is to work on the exterior. The long winter has not been kind to us and has definitely put delays on our maintenance plans. Thank you for staying with us and look forward to catering to any of your accommodation needs in the future!

The room was dated and had an unpleasant odor. No convenient outlets around the room to charge up my phone but at the vanity sink. Our toilet was always plugged the guy at the front says he was having issues with the septic system. I believe him because there was an offensive odor coming off of him. Dinning room was closed thank goodness would not have ate there anyway. The positive of this stay was the leaving. Don't understand how a name like Howard Johnson has a place like this is still in business.

We have stopped through a couple of times and most recent was last week. The Pool and Sauna have recently opened and looks great. Last year they were doing renovations in the rooms and my trip this year showed lots of improvement. The rooms are very large and spacious, they have a racquetball court which my kids love. It is not a 5 star hotel hence for the price we pay, it is very clean and the rooms are exceptionally nice. We especially enjoy not having to carry our luggage up elevators as access to our car is right from our room. I have recommended this location to our corporate travel team for future stays.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm 111

This hotel is the ideal location for sport teams playing in the Chatham/Kent Area. Our hockey team stayed at this hotel and it was the perfect location for us to really have a great team experience. The manager was excellent and very accommodating. We were given our own complimentary hospitality room to host a movie night and the manager provided the girls with popcorn. The pool was perfect for entertaining the team after a long day of games and the manager ensured that we were all well taken care of. I agree - the hotel does need some work, but the manager is trying to upgrade the rooms and hotel. It is a 25 minute drive to Chatham but it was worth the drive as this was a perfect hotel for a hockey or sports team. The rooms were clean; breakfast was provided; and the value was excellent for the incredible rate we paid.
