great time for sure!

Great for the money. Not fancy but clean and relaxing. Nothing special about this hotel but with the money you save you can't go wrong.

Under construction

Overall the hotel was Okay. However there where issues. it has all non smoking rooms and is a non smoking building, which I love however, the staff was smoking in the lobby making the hotel hallways stink like smoke. Since the building is under construction they did not have a pool like I thought because it's being built. However there was 1 out of 2 spas that where working which was nice. The continental breakfast was good, had a good variety and everything was clean and fresh. If you are looking for a good deal and do not mind the current construction with no pool it is a good place to sleep. The rooms where clean and we had wifi and cable television with flat screen tv.

Friendly staff

The hotel was difficult to find due to th road construction, you had to cross over streets under construction. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was near all the businesses with which I had appointments. Rooms was adequate for the cost. Breakfast was a little bleak but adequate.

HOJO Ponderay

Good location if passing through town or there to ski for a few days at Schweitzer. Not glamorous but utilitarian, clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff and a good rate.

Fun Weekend

Howard Johnson Hotel in Pondaray, Idaho was very easy to find. Our check in was great and fast. The hotel was set back off the highway so it was nice and quiet. All the staff that we saw were very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean and the bed comfortable. Our only problem was the size of the room. It was very small and compact. You had to sweeze by each other to get around the bed to the closet or window. The bathroom was also very small.We had the continental breakfast in the morning and it was very nice. Everything was set up and easy to use. The choices were good and plentyful. Our overall stay was good.

Quietest Place In Sandpoint

We went skiing for the weekend. First time at this hotel and, for the first time, was not awakened in the middle of the night by the train. Rooms small but super clean, well-equipped. Staff friendly and accommodating.

Perfectly fine

I used the HoJo for a ski trip to Schweitzer Mountain and it was up to the task. The location is great -- right at US 95 and Schweitzer Mountain Road. Free Wi-Fi was fast enough for work but not fast enough to run Netflix. The free breakfast was ordinary, but included waffles. No elevator to the second floor where most of the non-smoking rooms are located. Biggest surprise was the size of the single-bed room. It was tiny. Smallest I've been in for a long time.
