Booked this place for April 22 in October of 2022, they phoned approximately a month before we were to go to tell us they no longer have a room for us, because they’ve decided to rent the entire motel to refugees, they told us they’d talked to the Econo lodge up the street and they could put us up. We phoned the econo lodge only to find out no one had talked to them, no problem, we booked a room at the Econo Lodge, only to find out it was filthy, and filled with crackheads. Not a real big deal but when we walked past Howard Johnsons that night it looked empty so I stopped in and they informed me the refugees weren’t coming for another week ??

Stayed for 2 nights. The first night our room sinks didn't drain, toilet didn't flush and the AC unit was freaking loud. Second night we reported our problems and got transferred to the room next to us with no hassle. BUT the room we been transferred to had a door that didn't lock properly. Great service but poor functionality in rooms

Value for the money, good for family with kid. Nicely located near to downtown and river area for 1000 island cruise. Service in front desk is very professional, helpful and very well trained for Kingston visitors.

We were told that there was gonna be breakfast included with our reservation and there was no breakfast offered except for coffee and juice. There is no heat in the bedroom they provided a heater that took three hours to bring her room up to a comfortable temperature. The inside lock on our door was broken and when we reported it it was just documented there was nothing done about it. I would go to any other hotel then to go back to this Howard Johnson again

Dirty rooms and washrooms, very bad smell in the rooms, lights are not working, beds has bugs. That is a worst place to be in. Please never stay there as it will make you sick for next one month. Bad staff

Came with family and booked 2 rooms. Rooms were very clean, spacious, coffee and croissants fresh in the morning. Needed a comforter on the bed but found a blanket in closet area… great place to lay your head for a night

The only positive thing is that the room was relatively modernized and clean. That’s the only good thing I can say. We were awoken at 7:30 by contractors doing work on the outside walkway. And I mean drilling right into our window air conditioner. They ran out of breakfast items completely before 9:00. The area the hotel is in is full of homeless shelters and drop in centres. Stay elsewhere!

Place is close to public transit and a half hour walk from downtown. It is showing its age but is clean, well maintained and reasonably priced. Like many businesses in these pandemic times they are facing a staff shortage so it is very much “no frills” in terms of housekeeping, clean towels, etc.
