Great value

I was quite skeptical driving up to the Howard Johnson because it looked a little sketchy and slightly out of date but the inside was just fine. It was no different than any other hotel I have stayed in and it was very cheap. I was pleased with staying there. The continental breakfast was good as well. The trucks pulling up to the gas station next door make quite a lot of noise in the morning that woke me up a lot. That would be my only complaint.

Mediocre

It was not in a very nice location. Businesses close by had bullet proof windows. It was so so clean and the staff was nice but didn't do anything to impress us. I would not stay there again. In fact we canceled our night stay there on our way back from our cruise and stayed somewhere else.

Good hotel near the airport

i needed to stay overnight to catch a flight early in the morning. The attention was great, the hotel shutle picked me up at the airport shortly after my call and took me back for the flight at 5:00 am sharp. The room was clean and it had wi-fi. The hotel is a 10 minutes drive from the airport, has a couple of convenient stores at a walking distance and the price is right; very good overall value. Thanks to the night shift manager for his kind attention

Economical airport hotel

I was in town on a 20 hour layover between flights. I just wanted a clean place to sleep with free airport shuttle. On that basis this hotel delivered. Nothing special but not horrible. Updated rooms and flat screen tv was nice.

Convenient place to stay near IAH

The staff were very accommodating and helpful, letting us into the room before check-in time and giving us free toiletries that my wife had forgotten. Room was spacious and pleasant, with comfortable beds and a full-size ironing board and iron in the room. The location was very convenient, just a couple miles off JFK (main road into airport) and easy access.
