Howard Johnson Romulus, Detroit Metro Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room smelled of damp and old smoke. We asked for a different room and the staff were very helpful. But the second room smelled worse so we just stayed with the first and left the door open for a while. There was a damp patch stretching across the bedroom ceiling. The coffee maker still had coffee grounds. It was nice to have both a fridge and microwave.

Rooms were fair priced, but they rent out their parking spots for park and fly.

Not a luxury spot, but perfect for an overnight stay before an early morning flight, without paying a lot.

PIllows were too flat, our necks were very sore the next day. Not much of a breakfast bar. We had a man next door keep going out to smoke and talk loudly on his bluetooth up until midnight. The people above us must of had children because there was a lot of jumping and banging going on. It was not a room where we could relax.

Nice rooms, minutes away from airport. Rooms are smaller but updated with fridge and microwave, modern design. Nice array for continental breakfast. Enjoyed our short stay.

Disappointed. Thought Howard Johnsons would provide a nicer hotel room. Would not stay in a HJ again. Lobby was very ornate, but only 1 person on the desk handling everything. Elevator was broken. Not good in a 3 story hotel. Requested a room change, and in both rooms the window pane was broken.

Bathtub faucet broke, water constantly ran and toilet paper holder fell right off the wall when used the first time, told her cleaning lady who barely spoke english and she never did anything, also left a dirty cloth in room... Not up to par for the price!

I needed a place to crash before my early flight out the next morning. The check-in personnel were fast and professional. The quality of the TV reception was several decades behind the times but nonetheless I was satisfied with my stay.

Bed was so comfortable. I slept like a baby the whole night.

Nice hotel close to the airport, my complaint was the continental breakfast. Could've been much better, even for continental.

Shuttle service was fast. Service was great, location of hotel was very close to airport. Room and condition of hotel needs updated but it was ok.

Housekeeping staff great. Front desk staff polite. I love the cameras monotoring guest activities. I felt safe. I would stay again.

There was no tissue burn stains on blanket smoke detector hanging carpet dirty

The room was very filthy. The bed had hair on it, and the mattress had multiple stains. I discovered this immediately upon entering room. I returned to the reception area and asked for another room. I was given another room with a clean bed. However, the room was dusty. While the location is wonderful and the hotel is budget friendly, it is not worth the sacrifice of cleanliness!

We were taking an early morning flight out and stayed here the night before. Number 1 thing for us, the room was clean and comfortable! A great value and five minutes from the airport. Friendly staff, nice continental breakfast. Bob Evans next door, McDonald's down the street. Will stay here next time.

Special award to Maroun at front desk who is striving to serve us well!

It was not a bad hotel. But it wasn't anything that would make you say wow the hotel is right across the airport parking lot. So that was our view. We had a room on the second floor but once I would go downstairs to exit the hotel, there would be a strong smell of weed! I was pregnant when I went there, so I would take baths. And one night we get a call from the front desk says there is a leakage from my room! They told me not to take a bath! And switched me into another room. But I'm not complaining about it. It wasn't my fault. Room was decent. I booked my parents in the same hotel and they seemed to enjoy it.

The room was very old. There were hair and some crumbs in both beds. The pillows smelled of old sweat. Staff was very friendly.

I got a handicapped room on the 1st floor and it worked out fine.

Average hotel for cheap. Nothing too fancy just a decent room for a quick night or two. Good location and shuttles to airport
