“pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

checkin very efficient and friendly staff. Lovely spacious rooms with doors to patio and grassed area. Beds lovely and comfy. Very well equipped rooms with fridge/freezer, microwave and tea/coffee maker. Staff cleaning rooms very helpful. Didnt check out the pool but my son said it was nice. Spotless

The only fly in the ointment was the place next door for breakfast - dont bother - dreadful!! Lots of other nicer places to eat nearby.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back - front rooms look out over the carpark

We had a great experience at Howard Johnson when we travelled to Middletown in late March, 2012. We went for a restaurant week, and Howard Johnson had a great package. For a little bit over $100 we got one of the guest rooms with a King bed, a continental breakfast for two, and 2 (!!!) $20 off vouchers for dinner! The staff was very friendly and accomodating, and they had easy check out which was very convenient. They are also located right next to Applebees which is open until midnight on the weekends, so we were able to have a couple drinks after coming back from our dinner in Newport.
The only small thing is that the line of bath products that they use is not that great, so bring your own shampoo/conditioner! Other then that everything was perfect, and we would definitely stay there again when we go back to Newport!

Where should I start on how much we enjoyed our stay here? What a deal for the price - $55, online AAA rate. Nice size room. Clean, quiet. All the amenities - indoor heated pool, sauna, free toiletries, great maid service, friendly, helpful front desk, in room maps to all the local sites which are within seconds. We travel with our dog and they put us in a perfect first-floor room with a sliding door that went directly outside to a grassy area, leading to an open field for walks. Microwave and fridge in room. Absolutely, you must stay here. Only con is that this "best kept secret may be out" as the pool and sauna are always in use!

This is my second stay at the Howard Johnson hotel in Middletown, RI. I really like this hotel, and its such an amazing deal! I got it for $48 plus tax = $54.75. What a great price for a nicely situated hotel which includes sauna, indoor heated pool, and a great hot tub/whirlpool in the pool area. My only con is the hotel does not have free breakfast, you have to pay $5 at the Applebees next door, I have not done it though. There is a machine near the lobby that offers hot cocoa and coffee, and its honestly the best hot chocolate out of a machine that I've ever had! Its Awesome!
I called in my reservation and after 18 mins on the phone with someone from hotels.com, they were trying to do a price match and were taking forever and the call got disconnected. I called again and asked if i was going to have to wait another twenty minutes to make a reservation, and the guy had it done in less than ten minutes. So because of the delay, when I arrived at the hotel about ten minutes after making the call, they had not received my reservation, So I had to wait about ten more minutes for it to come in electronically. Once that was done, I was given my room key and everything was good!
The staff was really great, and when you request more pillows they bring them to your room! The balcony is wonderful, as are the free snacks and two bottles of water they give you! I feel this place is such an amazing deal for the money, and compared to the local competition it cannot be beat, and there is plenty of competition!
Overall I would totally stay here again, its such a great deal, and its clean and no bad smells or anything. Only complaint was there was a long black hair in one of my towels in the bathroom, obviously stuff slips through the cracks here and there.
Stay here and enjoy the great hotel and the great savings compared with other hotels nearby!

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the Marriott, I like it better...

We have family in the Newport area and are always looking for reasonably priced, clean, well-maintained, dog friendly places to stay. My son recommended the Howard Johnson on Rte 138 and we were extremely pleased with our stay. Our room was fresh and clean. We stayed in a room specified for dogs and you would never know that a dog had been there before. The mattreeses were firm and solid. Everything worked. There is a dog walking area right behind the hotel. There were many people at the hotel but we did not here any loud noise and all was very quiet after 10:45. Staff were helpful and friendly. The soda machine is $1.50, cheaper than the CVS down the street and they also sell small containers of ben and jerry's ice cream for late night snacking. Plenty of stores right in the area. You can walk to the Christmas Tree Shop if you want to buy "things you don't really need real cheap". Definitely will stay there again.

The orange roof may bring back memories of the 60's and 70's but it is the only thing old fashioned about this HoJo's. As with most hotels, our experience started and finished at the front desk. The staff was friendly, helpful and really made you want to come back again (and we will). The rooms are very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished including a micro fridge and flat panel television set. The indoor pool and spa were a great way to finish off a day of sightseeing.. We found the warm towels there an especially nice touch. Although breakfast is not included there are lots of convenient choices nearby. We chose this hotel after reading other tripadvisor reviews and found them all to be accurate including the rates mentioned. Our stay was really pleasant and a great value.
