Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Was put in a dirty, smoky room."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I requested a non-smoking room. That is always what we request when traveling. Due to having to bring my pet, a 12 lb. Shih Tzu, because the pet sitter had to cancel at the last minute, my room was changed to a smoking room when I arrived at the motel. Jessica stated that is the policy for Howard Johnson. I had read bad reviews for this motel, got it for $47.99 a night through your service, but thought it could not be that bad. My husband was very suspicious because it was so cheap and it turned out that he was right. We had just stayed at Microtel, also owned by Wyndam, the night before in St. Mary, GA and was great. Will not stay at Howard Johnsons again.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Everything went excellent. I'm really glad I decided to go with both your company and Sierra Suites for accommodations for my wedding. People are now wishing there were more Sierra Suites around. They were even kind enough to offer the discounted rate to those people that weren't sure they'd make to the wedding until after the cutoff date. I have already referred someone to your service for a wedding she's planning in Michigan." R.S. - Parsippany, NY
