Howard Johnson Helena

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was nice place, breakfast was very minimal. Older hotel in need of updates, but had what I needed.

staff was friendly and the service in the saloon was great

Place needs remodeling. Hotel needs to upgrade room key system.

Nice bar and lounge. Pool and hot tub great. Traveling with family of six and a dog. Used two rooms. Fantastic breakfast. Best ever.

The place is pretty run down. Our room was in the basement. There were fingerprint smears on the head board, a dirty towel hanging on the back of the bathroom door, stains on one of the "clean" towels, a soft, lumpy mattress, poorly made waffle batter for breakfast, a cloudy, scummy pool with a film of nasty-looking bubbles on top... Not a positive experience. The only good part about the stay was that we didn't stay longer. [...]. Don't stay here!
