clean and comfortable

I found the hotel to be clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The hotel members of staff were nice and helpful. New digital TV box was installed while I was there, making more TV stations available for viewing. They have a restaurant, and a chinese restaurant is just directly in front of the hotel. Well, if you are into KFC or Burger King, they’re just about 2 mins walk/a block down the hotel. Polo park shopping mall is few miles to the hotel, if you don’t drive the bus fare is $2.50 only (2013) to the polo park shopping mall. The wifi signal was not great in the room I was, which they said they would work on.

Fantastic Experience

The room was well kept clean and the beds were comfortable to sleep on, staff were friendly and down to earth, loved the restaurant and the breakfast special was great, filled me up. So the whole stay was great and i woke up feeling refreshed, also the location was great, near places to go shopping!

Howard Johnson Winnipeg

We stayed three nights at the Howard Johnson in west Winnipeg. The hotel was passable but slightly run down, paint poor, woodwork poor. The room was clean, nice linen and towels. A couple of bulbs did not work in the lamps. I would stay again.

Don't stay here!

The room was disgusting, smelled like urine, was afraid to touch or sit on the furniture for all the stains and dirt on them. Barely put my bag down and decided to check out faster than I checked in. I did not stay.

Winnipeg in July

It was very hot in Winnipeg and we were anxious to get to our motel for some air conditioned relief. In the heat wave, our room never got below 85 degrees and it was humid also. We asked for a different room but we never moved since that room did not get cool either. We went to Walmart and bought a fan so we could sleep better. Several things were out of order or broken as well-the ice machine, the deadbolt lock, the jacuzzi.

Not as advertised

The location of the hotel was good...the internet never worked in our room, the toilet overflowed, the spa wasn't working, the exercise room was non-existent...the best part of our stay was the $3.99 breakfast. The housekeeping service was friendly and helpful. Amenities were not as advertised. Price wasn't reasonable for what we got.

Hojo

Sink was plugged, fairly plain room, however, free internet and nice friendly staff at front desk. No maid service over the Christmas holidays, some noise from the bar which was directly below my room. The restaurant closed at 2 in the afternoon. Yes, that right, not 2 in the morning, but 2 in the afternoon. I thought they were joking. Overall, for the price, not bad.

HoH+Jo Express snowy week

Best part-friendly front desk. Clean and safe. Noise was minimal, breakfast was a bargain, housekeeping good. There's a beer store in the building at the back with considerable traffic, but none of it was offensive. Snow plowing took place promptly with a minimum of fuss. Not fancy by any means, but I would go there again depending on price. Glad I know about it. Would recommend.

Good Staff

Quite and neat hotel but the room is a bit small. Quilt is too thin especially in winter season.
