Howard Johnson Express Arlington

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was clean, ready on time and a good value. Check in was quick and painless.

Hotel was close to venue and it was clean. But it lacked a lot of the simple amenities that most other hotels offer. No real business center. It had one computer in the corner of the lobby that kept losing it's internet connection. Making it quite difficult to get my boarding passes.Website also claimed it offered continental breakfast...wrong!!! I could've overlooked these things if the cost of the rooms would have been a little more reasonable.

Several issues that caused rating to drop. Had to change rooms due to clogged toilet and every drink machine was sold out. Great location to Six Flags, baseball and football stadiums.

Staff was very friendly, breakfast was nice and clean. Room was cleaned well. Very convenient for the shuttle to pick us up in the front to go to the Rangers game.. I wouldn't change a thing :)

Spent a single night with my family to allow for two days at Six Flags. Very conveniently located to the park. Staff allowed late check-in, and room was reasonably nice. Only issue that did occur was that the smoke detector was chirping. So I called the front desk about 2 minutes after checking in, and they said maintenance would take care of it. They then called me back about a minute later and asked me to take the battery out it until the maintenance man arrived, which I did. Maintenance never did arrive to install a new battery while we were there. Not a bad place to stay, but I am a bit baffled why I did not get the employee rate, since the front desk apparently thinks that I work for them.

Rooms very clean and decorated nicely. Front desk helpful and courteous with all issues. I highly recommend.

We've stayed here a few times for Rangers or Cowboys games. The staff is always very friendly, never really had any issues. This is not a 5 star hotel and I wish people wouldn't rate them poorly because it's clean and it's convenient and it's a good deal considering all the other hotels in the area. There's a shuttle pick up right in front of the hotel for service to both stadiums, that alone is worth the price.

it was great, great great great great great great great great great

Though hotel seemed short staffed. When they weren't busy, the staff was great! Location was optimal with plenty of tourist friendly attractions nearby

Very Clean, friendly staff, Large Spacious room, Nice features, LCD TV. Overall Value the money. I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking spacious room value for money.

Hotel is clean and staff is very helpful. The Breakfast could be better, it is just the basics. Overall worth the money. I would recomend the hotel to anyone looking for clean comfortable room.

The location is perfect for Cowboys, Rangers, or Six Flags visits, and this hotel knows it. They know they can book the rooms while doing just enough to get by on service and cleanliness. There was cracked dry wall all over the carpet in our room. The linens and bedsheets were clean, but it was obvious that little or no detergent was used. The hotel was understaffed, long lines and waits for anything from customer service. There's really no fault to the hotel on this next criticism, as there is nothing much they can do about it, but there has always been quite a rowdy crowd every time I have stayed here before a sporting event. It can get pretty loud, the walls are thin. If you are playing all day and night, and just need a place to sleep, then this might be an ok place to stay, but if you want to try to relax and enjoy a nice evening while visiting the metroplex, you may want to stay elsewhere.

Nice hotel, large room, very clean, breakfast was very good, shopping possibilities available right next door. Six Flags and AT&T Stadium are all close.

It was great to stay this hotel though we needed to drive every day to Dallas - 15 min. Wos worth it. Especially after we heard that friends of us stayed in Dallas ciry itself for 3 times more money and very bad conditions. We were happy to stay at Howard Johnson!

A surprise for our trip---- really new rooms, very comfortable, and very cheap price. Worth to try again for Howard Johnson Express Inn.

hotel was great literally down the road from at&t staduim everything was clean

Very clean very convenient to at&t six flags and ballpark- and not a bad price. Would stay again. Only negative for us - coffee was pretty awful.

Rooms are much better than you would think looking at the outside of hotel.

We were not here much but they were very accomadating and understanding to our situation the road is a little loud durning the day but wasn't bad at night

This hotel was in an excellent location for our one year anniversary trip and the staff was well informed on everything we had questions about!
