Didn't know what to think

This hotel I was a little skeptical but other than the outdated room decor we were very pleased... See full review

Under Construction

We booked the hotel due to the picture of the pool as we were moving from Colorado to Iowa and wanted a place half way for the kids to unwind and swim. When we arrived we were informed that the hotel is under construction and the pool was closed. The staff was very unfriendly and unapologetic about the construction issues. The general manager was more helpful but all in all the stay was a bust as our main objective (to swim) was not met.

Overnight stay to be at CCC in am.

Room had fridg, microwave, desk and large chair. Denny's and bar in building if that suites you. I will stay again the next time I have to be in GI early in the morning. Close to a Walmart, gas station and food strip.

Not so family friendly

I was looking for a cheap room for me and my two young children while traveling through the area on I-80. We settled on this hotel due to it having a pool/spa. It was several miles off of I-80 but acceptable. Upon checking in there was loud band music heard in the lobby from the attached Denny's which has a lounge. After she told me there was a concert she also stated that there was a drag show in the back?!! And they say GMO corn is safe.... The receptionist did put us in a room far away to avoid the noise. After getting ready for the pool and walking down, the drag show was located in close proximity to the pool area. Several kids saw and screamed about the "different" people that were visible. I wish they would have not had this show or at least separated it from public spaces. The pool was large, heated, and nice. However, the small spa felt like a lukewarm bath - too bad. The entire hotel could use an interior remodel. Cheap price compared to other options, but would not stay again.

Easy to Find

This hotel was easy to find and was in a good location for our needs. The cleanliness of our room was our main issue with this hotel. There was a washcloth left from a previous guest hanging on the shower curtain rod-gross! The bathroom counter was also not cleaned up well. Makes you wonder how many other things were overlooked by the cleaning staff and sure doesn't make for a comfortable stay.

Free Breakfast HAHAHAHAHAHA

Since Denny's opened in July 2012, They can no longer serve food. The coupon I was traveling with came out in August, but they said it was old. It said free hot cafe breakfast as well as their web site says free breackfasst. When in fact they give you a $4 off voucher to eat at Denny's. There are 4 things on menu for $4, but that doesn't cover coffee. Bait & switch. Sign on back wall of desk states the will remove safe charge from bill @ checkout. When I asked them to do so She said that they don't charge unless the come in & open it for you. Safe requires a credit card. I won't stay here again. Even Super * waffles are better that Denny's greasy breakfasts.

Good Value for the money

The motel had some issues but nothing terrible. We never did find the elevator but the stairs were right by the door to our car. We met our daughter there and our rooms were in a quite area and together. Would have liked to have one of those doors between the rooms but it worked. Really liked the hot breakfast, choice of 3 different breakfasts. The pool was very nice and not too busy but no kids in the hot pool under 12? I am afraid it was the babies 1st pool experience and he was in the hot pool. For the price it was clean and the air conditioning worked and there was hot water. Good Value.

sub standard

It felt like we were at a motel 6! lack of services, refridgerator broken, crack in tub, tub clogged, phone rang 3 times with no one on other end (found out from other guest that there phone did the same) had to get my own pillows due to no staff at 10pm. tape on the wall, no parking available, poor to no internet connection, missing a chair in the room (for the desk). I have already told friends to NOT stay at Howard Johnson, we travel to Grand Island twice a year, this was the first and last time we will stay at HOJO! VERY UNSATISFIED!

What is that smell

The room smelled of mold and mildew . The bathroom also showed signs of a water leak . Staff at checkout in morning (when I told them of the odor)did not seem to really care . Will not stay in a Howard Johnson again.
