Reviewed August 20, 2012

We booked a one night stay. The location was pretty close to town, within short walking distance. It was the middle of July and the weather was very hot. We were very happy that the air conditioning worked very well! Room was very clean. At night, we did not hear much noise coming from the adjacent main road. Good, quiet hotel Breakfast was good. Our only complaint was that in the morning, the hot water in the shower did not work very well.

Howard Johnson was the cheapest hotel we could find in Leavenworth. We wanted to stay for 3 nights and didn't want to pay the high summer prices. It was comfortable but well used and could use a facelift or renno but then there wouldn't be any place in town for people like us that spend little time in the room during the day so don't want to pay the high prices.

Room Tip: Good place if you are not spending much time inside, just sleeping.

I was thrilled to find a hotel room for $75 in Leavenworth. Even happier that it had a great location, outdoor pool and free breakfast! The staff was very friendly, breakfast had many choices and rooms were nice. The 2 queen size beds were very soft with 4 pillows each and down comforters! My 2 daughters and I have stayed in numerous budget hotels over the past month and this one exceeded our expectations. I look forward to traveling to this hotel every summer!

Room Tip: 3rd floor room 310 was our room.

I really get tired of all the complainers who book a Hojos but want a VIP $500/night experience. Clean rooms, nice beds, the front desk wants to know if anyone's noisy after 11pm. Great place for the money. Best beds in our entire 2 week road trip from Wyoming.

Although the hotel may be old, the rooms have been updated. The bathrooms are ADA compliant and the air conditioner has a remote control so you can control the temperature and fan speed without getting out of bed. The second floor room had good sound insulation as we barely heard the traffic going by outside on SR 2. The free breakfast consisted of toast, waffles, cereal, milk, juice, and coffee.

The room was very clean and we had no problems. The staff was very courteous and helpful

The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the downtown area and we were happy to leave our car parked in the hotel's garage area when we walked to town. The garage area is limited and it is first come, first serve. The car kept nice and cool in the hot summer sun.

The city park is also a 10 minute walk and it is huge! Great place to go if you want to get away from the crowds and see lots of nature. It is also a great place to go if you have kids or pets so they can get some down time from shopping.

We were looking for a place with a pool. The HJ turned out to be very good value, old but comfortable. The kids love to swim and even the pricier places often had no pool. We found the room to be a little musty smelling, but the beds and bedding appeared new. Even though we were on the second floor facing the road the room was quiet enough on a Saturday night to sleep well. Water pressure was excellent and the staff were very helpful with local knowledge. Free breakfast with the nice waffle machines that are becoming so popular. Kids always love that.

Room Tip: I would recommend the upper floor, we spoke to another visitor at the free breakfast who told us the...

Bedbugs!!! Dirty, with live bed bugs crawling around. Do not go here!! Room appeared older and decent for the price, but it smelled stuffy and musty. We settled in, laid down to relax, and I got bitten!!, jumped up, and saw a little red bug skittering across the white sheet. GROSS!!! Left immediately, sleeping in our car now tonight....
