Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Howard Johnson Inn & Suites

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Centrally located, convenient, very nice and much more! "
Overall Score4.5/ 5
Looking for an affordable hotel just minutes from Downtown and the Riverwalk? The Howard Johnson Inn & Suites Central is the place to stay. The hotel is just off of 1-10 and while it is an exterior hotel it is interior. All entry doors face the inside pool area and the windows are on the parking lot side of the hotel protected by shrubs. The pool/courtyard area is very inviting and a small grill is available for cookouts. The rooms are very spacious whether you book a King or two doubles you will have more than enough room. The hotel has many offerings including a fitness center, laundry, in room safes, ceiling fans, flat screen TV, sleeper sofa, Microwave/refrigerator and 3 Kitchenette Suites which are great for Extended Stay. Breakfast is extended complimentary daily to hotel guests. The Staff is very friendly and ready to assist you with finalizing your arrangements.

"Terrible - do not stay there"

In a very bad neighborhood, screaming and yelling all night. Ice machine broke, towels terrible, side doors were not key entry only. We were to stay two nights and only stayed one. Getting a refund for the second night.

22-Mar-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Mar 20 to Sat Mar 22 2014 at a $89.99 average nightly rate.
Response from Management on 14-Aug-2014:
Nancy, I apologize that your stay was anything less than happy as we strive to make sure all our guests have a wonderful stay. The surrounding neighborhood is a nice area and we do not allow screaming, yelling or disruptive behavior on our property. One of our two ice machines is currently not working, but the part has been ordered and as soon as it arrives we will be able to fix it. We take great care of our sheets, towels and laundry with a fantastic system by Ecolabs to insure cleanliness and all four of the guest side entry doors are only accessible by use of the guest key card. The only entrance unlocked is our front lobby entrance and that is staffed 24 hrs a day. I would love to extend an offer for a return visit and I will make sure that you do not have these issues again. Thank you for your feedback. It is very important to us so that we can correct the issues you had and create a better stay for all of our guests. Have a wonderful day.
"Not worth the money"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Handicap accessible shower is unsafe. Entire restroom floor was wet after showering. Worried that my father would slip and fall. Room had an ugly odor. Hotel needs to be renovated.

Response from Management on 14-Aug-2014:
Dora,We have two styles of handicap rooms available for our guests. The style room you were in has no tub, just a shower for those guests who have different physical needs and can not use a tub setting. This is one of the standard style handicap rooms around the world in the hospitality field. I have made sure that our housekeeping staff diligently cleaned the room to insure that there is no ugly odor in the room. We are currently in the process of updating our property. We appreciate your feedback as it gives us the opportunity to improve and excel for our guests. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
