Howard Johnson Express College Station

Recent guest reviews

Close to medical center for our early appointment. Clean. Staff attentive. Older hotel. Nothing fancy; but coffee, fridge, and microwave in room. Never tire of Texas shaped waffles!

Bugs, filth and bad attitudes. trying to forget about it.

First off, the location was great, its next to a freeway. The hotel is not surrounded by a gate so safety is somewhat of an issue. There was a stain on my sheet. I called for room service and was told they were short staffed and to come get them myself. For the price, it was fine...its no Hampton Inn!! But for the price its definitely worth it.

This is an older motel, but the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was OK (no yoghurt etc., but the usual 2 cereals & bananas & coffee). The internet was fantastic.

Place is decent. I stay because it's close to Texas World Speedway.

The bed was comfortable and the room was fairly clean.

This hotel was convienantly located and easy to get to. It was priced appropriately for the occasion. My stay was in June and the college was probably less busy than usual. Hotel was clean and well run. I would definitely stay there again.

REMOTE FOR TV NOT WORKING HD TO UNPLUG TO TURN TV OFF . COULD NOT WATCH TV. SMOKE DETECTOR WAS HANGING FROM CEILING. AIR CONDITIONER WAS SO LOUD COULD NOT SLEEP. ALL HOTELS WERE BOOKED IN TOWN SO COULD NOT SWITCH HOTELS

This hotel is just scary. the location is less than desirable and our room was at the very back of the lot with a one way parking lot so narrow that I had trouble backing my Jeep Commander out without hitting the fence. We stayed two nights-our room was not cleaned and we had to get our own towels on the 2nd day. It is a sketch place and I do not recommend staying here-ever. It was the only room available in College Station for the weekend that we were there. If I had know how scary this property was-I would have stayed in Bryan or some other nearby town.

Parking was terrible no room for pickup where i was located at

Well basically we were on a soccer tournament, the time we stay it was peacefull and relax.

they should not have a breakfist at all if there are going

This hotel is so old. Room was small. There were dead crickets in the bathroom light fixture. It seemed like only the bare minimum was done to clean the room. It was supposed to be a non smoking room but it smelled like stale smoke in there. Would NOT stay there again. Way too much in price for what we got. Breakfast was frozen junk. Powdered coffee cream and cheap tasting coffee. Just an old run down hotel.

I figured that this hotel would be a little on the dingy side because of the price, but I wasn't expecting it to be unclean (afterall, it is a chain hotel). So here were some of the problems that I found: 1. I always check for bed bugs (thank God there were none) and found some blood spots and baby roach carcasses on the spring mattress. 2. The carpets were disgusting. They turned my feet black when i walked around. 3. I found a long, black hair within the sheets. (I have red hair, and my husband has brown...) 4. The towels had stains on them. 5. And lastly, breakfast was okay, but they almost ran out of everything around 7:20am on one of the days. I definitely will not be staying at this particular hotel ever again. BUT I will say that the staff was super nice and the location wasn't too bad.

This hotel is obviously very old and shows it's age in spite of being reasoably well kept and reasonably clean. The king-size bed was clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was extremely small. This was one of few hotel rooms left in the area at booking.

I've stayed here a few times and it's okay. Nothing special and you get what you pay for.

Room key quit working everytime left room bed. Not very easy to move about. Area

The location worked well for us, the room was clean, and the bathroom was a little larger than I expected. Nice room amenities, like free wi-fi, fridge, microwave, safe... Motel appears older from the outside, but we were pleased with our room. Would stay here again.

My son and I came in for the A&M football game and our room was clean and quiet. The man at the front desk was courteous and helpful. The hotel was all we needed and better than we expected.

Reasonable place; no complaints. It's near where I wanted to be and was clean.
