Howard Johnson Inn Lima

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Having never stayed at a Howard Johnson hotel, we were pleasantly surprised ! Very good value for the reasonable price. It was recently renovated and the result was more than satisfactory!

There are 5 hotels all within 100 yards of each other. Within walking distance is an Olive garden, Applebys, Texas Roadhouse, and gast food. The indoor pool is open and centrally located in the middle of the facility. Video arcade for kids. A pizza restraunt with happy hour for domestic bottled $1.50 and one beer on draft $1.00.

kids and adults slamming doors all day and night. screaming and yelling at 2-4 am. I had a better time when the hotel was full of bikers, at least there was respect for others. I will never stay here again.

room didn't get cleaned first day. left room at 1 pm and took do not disturb sign down. They were still cleaning down the hall. Wasn't a huge issue. Nice place, a little noisy even on the third floor. Would stay there again though. Overall good experience and if we come to area again will stay here. Good location to restaurants, shopping, etc

Amazing visit. Will always go back ! Amazing staff. Clean. Comfortable beds!

Very nice, comfortable. Breakfast was ok nothing fancy.

I only stayed for one night, but it was a pretty nice experience. The hotel is very close to several restaurants, my boyfriend and I actually walked to Olive Garden for dinner. The need was nice and comfy, that is pretty great coming from me, I'm a bit particular about needs and pillows as I have neck and back issues. There's aren't any true windows in the rooms, just a double for that looks over the lobby and first floor of the inside of the hotel. Overall we had a good experience, so much so that my boyfriend wants to consider more the start hotels when we travel in the future!

Hotel was great and comfortable, the only downside that I feel is important with any hotel is bathroom cleanliness. Your could tell they try to do their best with the age of the bathroom fixtures, and the size of the bathroom was great. The toilet had a discomforting amount of hair on it and the ceiling in the shower showed traces of mold.

I grew up in lima for the first 24 years of my life and I have visited this location many times when I lived in lima, but now that I have gone back for my father's funeral this past week, the upgrades and renovations are remarkable. The rooms were clean and updated, the breakfast buffet was awesome with fresh waffles and a wide variety of options. The location was excellent, and is located in an area that is overflowing with shopping and food options. I will be back to this location everytime life brings me back to my childhood home.

Hotel is close to I-75. Clean room. Great lobby with pool. Courteous staff.

Sorry, we did not get to stay longer and enjoy the Amenities.

Check-in was friendly and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was fresh and more than sufficient. Close to a number of restaurants.

My wife and I went here for her birthday and a weekend get away. Well I did surprise her with this little trip. We enjoyed our stay there at the hotel. It was very nice that it had a refrigerator in the room. Made it handy to keep the wine cool... We love that the restaurants were in walking distance. Also we went to J's Sports pub for a drink and enjoyed the entertainment. We would stay here again it was alot of fun and nice to getaway!!

I booked the room in advance and was happy with the location as it was right off the interstated and within 10 minutes of where I was going in the morning. The staff was nice and the room was in great shape. The hotel was under reovation though and it was a little hard to navigate around. Also the breakfast that was served was not very good.

They were doing some renovations during my stay so obviously making some improvements which is always a good thing. They had lots to choose from in the way of places to eat close by that also delivered. Overall not bad for the price.

When we got to the hotel they placed us in a room that was suppose to be nonsmoking but it seemed the person who was there before us broke the rules. I asked to be placed in another room as my son is asthmatic and they accomodated me with no problem. They were very pleasant and apologetic. It was a great place to be at.

Great hotel for the price, had a pool side room, nice and clean, only 5 persons allowed to swim during your stay and arm bands are issued at check in and checked periodically at the pool

Great

The rooms were clean and kept well. The pool, billiards and all the recreation equipment was well kept. The staff was friendly. Enjoyed the stay!
