Howard Johnson Romulus, Detroit Metro Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

In sub 0 weather all rooms were out side entrances, the heater came on and off all night was very noisey and could not get my normal discounts because we booked through a third party

Hotel was very affordable and the staff was beyond nice, helpful, and assisted us with getting extended parking since the customer service person at Orbitz said it was included (if you plan on leaving your car for a trip, parking is NOT included - as much as I’ve traveled I should have known that was too good to be true when I was told that) The room itself was nice, bed was comfy but that was about it. I know we’re close to the airport but it literally sounded like jumbo jets were landing right outside of the room in the parking lot - EVERY TEN MINUTES. there is like no sound proofing whatsoever. I could hear everyone outside at all hours of the night. Very frustrating and really made the stay totally unenjoyable. I hate giving a bad review cause the staff was so nice, but as far as the room goes, I definitely got what I paid for (not a whole lot)

Heaven ..Very Quite Comfortable...excellent Breakfast...nice shower.

Old motel. No smoking but everyone just smokes out your door,. Poor breakfast very limited

Staff was very helpful, especially in getting me connected with my hotel shuttle. Bed vas very comfortable and room was very clean.

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.
