Howard Johnson Romulus, Detroit Metro Airport

Recent guest reviews

The staff was very friendly, the rates were good, the room was comfortable.

We did not have electricity and this place had availability so we decided to book it and give it a try. It is close to the airport and honestly, for the price, I cannot complain! The check-in was self-explanatory and went by relatively fast. When we got inside the room, it was very clean and comfortable (especially for the price that we paid). The television worked and overall, it was a nice stay. They offer a free cold continental breakfast, which I think was very nice. The outside building is clean but has a few strange people lurking around, which comes with the price point. I felt safe but it is not the most luxurious hotel to stay at. Parking was free but was full. It is close to a lot of restaurants so you definitely have food options. Overall, this hotel was clean and served its purpose for my friend and I.

The gentleman who was there when we arrived was very well dressed and personality was A1 very very nice. He treated my husband and I exceptionally well. Especially impressed being it was around 6:30 - 7:00 am when we arrived. I didn’t like the fact that it was hair on the pillows on one of the beds, and hair in the shower when I went to get in😐 but overall it was ok.

It was my birthday present to me and I need the rest. Love it

I love the hotel shuttle to and from the airport! It is the main reason we stay at this hotel! They are very obliging folks!

I was very disappointed in this hotel. The pictures on the website was nothing like the rooms. Mine for example had curtains the I could not close all the way, chipped paint, stained tub, dripping tub, stained chair. Very disappointed. The staff was on the phone with her feet up when I came in for breakfast and then she got an attitude when I told her there was no coffee.

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.
