Showing it's age

The staff tries here but this place is REALLY showing it's age, I stayed there 40 years ago and not much but fresh paint has changed, the floors creak the AC is really noisy, the "quiet time after 10PM" apparently didn't apply to the family in the room above us and the place smells like an old smoked in hotel. Time to knock it down and start over. We stayed two nights, July 3rd and 4th and the room rates were $104 and $156.............260 bucks for a two night stay and I really didn't feel comfortable using the shower. There are not a lot of hotel choices in the area and the vast majority are old and outdated just like this one. Stay in Wenatchee and drive into town...............

A nice place to stay

We had a very nice time in a very clean and comfortable room. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The continental breakfast was well laid out and nicely attended with a staff member to help out. The location was just a little bit further than I like to walk from the downtown area but it was very doable.

Great getaway destination

Overall a great place to stay for the weekend. Walking distance to all the shops and stores, and the staff were very friendly. Could use an update in the future. But a great place none the less. Will stay here again!

New Year's in Leavenworth

Our 2 Queen room had everything we needed, including a refridgerator! The staff was fast at check-in, we did not expereience issues, there was a breakfast but we did not attend because we were out late for the New Year festivities. Overall, I would return to The Howard Johnson Leavenworth!

okay for the price

the room was clean if a bit dated, much farther from downtown than advertised, room did have a beautiful view of the mountains and was spacious for all of our luggage. wasn't able to have the breakfast as it was always gone by the time we went down to eat, all in all would stay again for the same price we paid.
