Nice and clean. We enjoyed the pool after a very warm day! Thank you to very helpful staff

My lodging experience with this particular Howard Johnson hotel in Flagstaff has been very joyful and pleasant. I mistakenly forgot my key in my room more than once. Front desk were patient, understanding with a side of humor about it all during their key duplicate. When I checked out and gave them the original keys and two duplicates, that same farewell held understanding, patience and a sense of humor.

What a dump. Glad I only stayed one night. Dark and worn. Location was the only positive thing about this place, but it's in a whole row of other hotels so many other choices. The bathroom sink was updated and everything else was from the 70's. even woke up to a friendly cockroach on the floor. Eeeeeeew!

Wonderful stay and felt the area to be safe and enjoyable stay. Frig and microwave in room was convenient. Thank you

Our room was a Little bit dirty. We had two rooms and in one room it smelled like smoke. The fan in the bathroom was terribly loud.

When I arrived the hotel staff rudely told me that they did not have the room I had booked on Orbitz. I called Orbitz customer service and they blamed the hotel. No one wanted to accept the blame. Unfortunately I would recommend being careful trusting Orbitz listings. If you end up making a booking, I would call the hotel to make sure that they actually have the room that you booked and paid for.

Dirty room not maintained well at all. The breakfast was really poor. For a $100 more than a loaf of white bread would be expected. The management/ownership clearly does not care what their motel looks or smells like. For real, sleep in your car if you have to but don't stay here.

I picked an affordable smoking and dog friendly room. as such i was expecting pretty mediocre accommodations. I got about what i expected. nothing great, not bad

The only reason we stayed here was because it was close to the freeway and on the cheaper side. Staff was not friendly Rooms were worn down, smelly, dirty Outside was dirty too, trash wasn't being collected ** during our stay they were remodeling several rooms below us. We understand they have to do this to update the hotel, but they were working until 9PM, which is WAY too late to inconvenience guests.

Ants crawling in the bathroom, stained bathtub and comforter. Felt uncomfortable and unsafe.

Breakfast had no coffee, room was filthy, and the wifi didn't work during my stay. Had I not booked this on Orbitz I'd be asking for a refund.

I thought the name Howard Johnson was assurance of a clean and comfortable stay. But the hotel was very shabby and the sheets and towels were so dingy that I was worried about cleanliness and bed bugs. We arrived too late to consider changing to a better hotel. i will not trust that name again. Thank you.

Comfortable place for the night. Bathroom needs a bit of an update.

there was hair in the tub upon checking in. other then that, it was fine.

Good but needs some work from outside As the stairs deteriorating and doesn't look good.

When you roll up to the hotel, you would think that it's been abandoned. The exterior needs some real TLC. Peeling paint, stairs that need work, tiny registration area and that's just the obvious stuff. The room doors look a little worn and the landings need attention. The registration staff was efficient and nice. However, the rooms are surprisingly nice. The bedspreads need to be upgraded but the beds are very cozy and the rooms are large. Showers are good and strong with plenty of hot water. It's always nice to have a fridge and a microwave. Believe it or not (and I've traveled a lot in my time), this hotel is a decent value. I'd stay here again versus Motel 6 or Days Inn (both are nearby).

I actually had car trouble when I got there the maintenance man was great Mike, was very helpful and lent me some tools to work on my vehicle and I got back on the road in no time thank you staff and especially Mike the maintenance guy!

We were put in a smoking room and we don't smoke. My experience would have been better If we were in a non smoking room. Orbitz was not specific on room. Next time I will make sure it's non smoking.

I was checked into a room that was only half cleaned. The bathtub band sunk were dirty and there was food in the mini fridge. The coffee pot was broken. I moved to a new room for remaining 3 nights and it was better but the coffee pot took an hour and ten minutes to brew 2 cups of coffee. Will nit return to this hotel. Staff was friendly but didn't know what to do to accommodate.

The room was spacious and clean. I asked the staff to recommend a place to eat and they gave me a few to choose from and driving directions.
