Howard Johnson Hotel Edmonton

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was friendly which is important. However for the price there was little value. I will next time be happier paying more than to stay at a hotel that had a quality of a motel. Luckily the only way is to go up! Thanks.

My room was very clean and smelled fresh. The bathtub was large and comfortable. It was quiet in the room and in the lobby. The internet was only available in the lobby. And there was no breakfast available.

You get what you pay for, good if you just want to sleep nothing else

Very pleasant staff. Only cons : Tub way to high and the Window didn't open. This hotel.was 100% better then the red deer lodge we stayed in the night after. The red deer lodge was a disaster and they still charged us 188. This room had the same 2 queen beds and more then the red deer room and was only 103 for the night!!

Quite dirty and the fridge didn't work. I guess you get what you pay for....

I made my reservation 3 months in advance as I was traveling by bicycle. The staff treated me rudely as if I was a bum off the street. They would not let me check in early nor store my bike there for a few hours. They put me in a hot, unairconditioned room. I finally asked for a different room and politely said I did not like being treated like this. Then they warmed up.

This hotel was described as "close" to the airport. IT IS NOT. The wi-fi was terrible, the rooms were dreary and the cab to the airport cost 60 bucks. Also the elevator was broken and the neighborhood is sketchy. Not recommended at all for anyone unless you're a drug addict who likes uncomfortable beds and bad Chinese food.

this hotel is 4 stories with no working elevator. They include a free hot breakfast.The owner runs the chinese resturant and has not been open before 9 or 10 in the 3 days I have been here. The location is across the street from an adult book store with several more in close proximity. They are supposidly renovating the place but I do not see much or any work going on. I would not bring my young kids to this place for sure.

I actually don't think that Howard Johnson actually sponsors this hotel. I've stayed at a number of hojos and this one was not even close to on par. There wasn't and air conditioner and the elevator has not worked for years from what I could tell. And by the answer that I got from the front desk, the elevator had not worked since the person working there had started (6 months). The elevator would not be a problem except for the fact that they put me on the top floor. I'm not a fan of meth-heads and drug addicts either. The neighborhood and hotel was plagued by them. My flight was fine and so was my car rental. The hotel staff were decent however. Thanks, Barrett

The elevator did not work, Hotel was dirty in lobby, The room was dirty and I decided not to sleep there. I know the chances of getting refund is not happening so I will not use in the future. The hotel was under remodeling they said. But that is no excuse for not being clean and elevators not working.

worst hotel ive stayed at in years. charged me for the room in advance plus a $50 deposit. this is unsuitable for the business traveller

The carpet is not vacuumed daily. No replenishment of basic toiletries like shampoo and bath soap. Can not understnad written english request like two more extra bath towels instead the housekeeping only left us with one bath towels no face or wash towels. The stairs and the corridors are not well lighted and the corridors smelled like an old building. Management has to do something about cleanliness and odor of the inside of the hotel if they wnat more business.

i needed aplace close to work and worked out very well at the last minute

Room not properly cleaned, cups of water left by previous occupant, elevator broken, poor connectivity, dirty halls, pool out of order... Staff was nice though... Might be the last time I go with hojo (and my expectations were low to start)

the room was not clean. there were obvious signs of stains on furniture in room, It was freezing outside and while the room had some heat there was no facility for adjustment. Although the proxomoty to transport was good, I am sure that there were others. Will not recommend.

Very nice room, and friendly staff. Will stay here again on our next trip to the city.

Upon arriving, I realized that what I was seeing didn't match what was on the internet. The clerk at the counter was very nice when I told him that I didn't feel safe with what I'd seen so far, and could I have the key to the room that I assigned to, so I could decide what I would be doing. After returning back down to the front desk, I waited until a couple signed in, and then I told him that the men in my life would not want me to stay there, when I didn't feel safe, nor was it as it was portrayed on the internet. He was very courteous and professional as he cancelled a 5 night stay.I was glad to leave the area.
