Tough to find a smoking room these days, so I can’t be too particular. Hotel is VERY old and it shows. Everything functioned ok and the bed was comfortable but, it could have been cleaner (dust on the back of the sofa, headboard, baseboards, black mold? in the corners of the shower and bathroom was freezing! Toilet seat and floor were ice cold. Price was in line with what u get though.

I have had some bad experiences with Howard Johnsons hotels in eastern Canada but was pleasantly surprised by the Fort St Johns hojo. Staff were couteous and helpful, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and hotel was reasonably quiet. Breakfast provided a reasonabl supply of the basics. Sausages, boiled eggs and potatoes were also available. Prices lower than other major chains in town. Good value.

The breakfast room looks like some construction company lunchroom with below average food. The room was “okay”. Basic cable really as in anything worth watching they don’t subscribe to but that’s okay cause you can browse the internet at blazing speeds No you can’t because the internet sucks What a surprise Tried to upload the picture of 1.5mbps but the internet is so slow I can’t

A little bit away from the centre of this small city makes this a quiet hotel. Nothing fancy. Clean. Breakfast available. Helpful staff. Everything We needed and nothing We didn't

The tub grout was mildewy, the hallway outside my nonsmoking room reeked of cigarette smoke, at 8:45am there was barely any breakfast left and what was left was cold.

Got a really good price for the room. Now I know why . I had about seven hours, so I just wanted to sleep. The smoke detector battery needed to be replaced as it kept on beeping. Had to fix that. Got into bed and the sheets were all pilled and I mean bad. Sleeping in my truck would have been better. A bit more money might be worth it. Learn from my mistake.

Pleasant and reliable. Good size rooms, fridge-microwave and coffee as usual. Reasonable breakfast for a place without a restaurant. People are friendly and efficient and put up with my requests :) .

This was absolutely the worst service I have ever experienced at any hotel! And that’s hard to say!!

The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. I originally booked for 2 nights. the boss called me at 11:30am on my second day , changes my work plans. I went to the front desk, explained my situation and without hesitation, Randy gave me a full refund. He was very kind, exceptional customer service, I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Ft St john again.

This is a regular stop on our way home as it is older but clean and well maintained. Not a big breakfast but definitely a variety for everyone. The only reason I gave it a 4 start review was because when I went to check out in the morning, I had to call 4 times before anyone came to the desk which was time I could have spent on other things.
