Our recent stay at Howard Johnson Hotel.

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: I like the price and feel it is a good bargain for the money. Also was happy to see they had added an extra waffel maker so there wasn't a long wait.
Cons: New bedspreads would be an improvement. Maybe a lamp so the lights won't bother a person going to bed earlier than the others in a room.
Location: The location is perfect if you want to shop at all or go to a movie. We did both and it was so nice when the movie ended to be so close by.
We found, as per other visits, the hotel staff to be very accommodating. We came on a Friday but our daughters family wasn't able to join us until the next day. They were really great about finding us rooms close to each other. When they had a running toilet in their room they instantly found them another room close by. From past visits we've found this to be the norm for them. Any problem that have come up have been addressed instantly. We won't hesitate to come back to this hotel.

Comfortable bed, but there were problems

Posted Apr 27, 2015
The front desk staff member was nice, but overwhelmed with too much to do and no help. The pool and spa were both not working and a very noisy group arrived after midnight in the room next to us, interrupting our sleep. The room was small and appeared clean, the bed was comfortable, but was not well made--bed linens and covers were wrinkled, no comfortable chairs to sit on, the bathroom was tiny and the low water toilet didn't function well. We won't be back.

Close to several popular places.

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: Close to what we were in town for.
Cons: See above.
Location: Airport,downtown Portland.
Overall it was a good stay. You really need to have someone working the breakfast area so the counter clerk doesnt have to do both jobs. We had to tell them several times that the food was gone etc.

Pros: Staff
Staff was wonderful but the condition of the room could be better. We had issues with ants in our room which made the night uncomfortable

The hotel wasn't great, but clean and staff very nice! It did the job for the price, that's for sure :0) Indoor pool, free breakfast and proximity to Portland had us hooked!

Great Hotel-Close to the mall

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: One of the main things I like about this hotel is just how clean it is. The decor is nice of the price range it's in and will stay again I'm sure.
Cons: We stayed on the first floor and found we could hear the people in the parking lot more then we wanted and lights filtered in the top of the curtains.
Location: Very close to the Vancouver mall and other shopping. Also has a movie theater there and a large variety of restaurants. Also near the freeway.
I think this was our fourth time to stay at this particular Howard Johnson. One thing you have to remember is to pay the extra $5.00 to upgrade if you want to have a refrigerator and a microwave. This particular time our refrigerator didn't work but we didn't let them know until the last day or I'm sure they would have remedies it.
