Recent guest reviews

The staff went above and beyond, We were there for a tournament. Hot breakfast. Rooms were good. Beds were fantastic. Great value for money. There are nicer hotels out there but this has everything you need. Clean rooms. Hardwood floors so no musty carpet smells. Very accommodating! For the price won't stay at a different hotel in Melville in the future.

Was down in Melville for a tourney and stayed at the HOJO. This hotel has been in Melville forever and is old and in need of updating. The room was old and was missing light covers and other small things. Old bedding. Coffee and fridge was nice. Not good for over $100, I'd go elsewhere

stayed the night as our train was 12 hours late, called the front desk to call us a cab when it was finally almost in town, got down to the lobby 10 mins later waited 10 more mins and no cab shows up. the guy locked himself in the office so had to call the hotel from our phones to speak to him his response was “they didn’t answer”.... it was now too late for us to try and call another cab and we debated walking the 4 kms to the train station even though it was 3 am... we got very lucky as the train engineers were staying at the same hotel and let us ride in their cab with them... very disappointed as the hotel staff could have called our room back or come out when we got to the lobby to explain he could not reach a cab instead was lazy and did nothing to help us even though my partner had a dislocated knee he is recovering from!

The Howard Johnson Hotel in Melville offers reasonable rates for the accommodation they provide. The surprise comes from the FIVE STAR staff; who are more willing to help you feel welcome; get on with your day and serve you better than any other hotel in Melville.

No pool, no restaurant, breakfast is questionable, old beds, but the room we stayed in was clean.

we were not happy with the credit card stuff was going on one minit it was pay the next it wasn't get stuff your in order

If was only hotel in Melville would be ok but that is not the case. Advertised to be newly renovated but seems to be just quick and easy fixes. Hot continental breakfast was terrible

I've stayed at this motel several times over the past years. Few changes other than the name. The worn carpets are still there. The formerly good restaurant has been replaced by a complimentary hot breakfast for guests. Nice, except the food is tasteless and cold; coffee is weak and lukewarm. However the coffee packets provided in the guest rooms is good. Our room was clean and comfortable. We appreciated having a microwave, fridge, and dining table. The motel is within easy walking distance of a grocery store and pizza place. We also appreciated being able to open a window to fresh SK air! The staff is friendly and obliging -- if you can find them! This is a decent motel, but leave your big-city expectations at home!

Unusual that on a long weekend the hotel was not busy. Staff really good. On arrival bathroom counter not cleaned properly. Hotel has been renovated. However the bathtub faucet was very difficult to set and the key for the door was more than difficult. The front door was locked at 10:00 PM. Was not advised on checking in. Was able to phone and thus the other key.

The Howard Johnson in Melville is an older hotel with newly renovated rooms. The inside of the hotel and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The girl at the front counter was very pleasant and even let us check in early as we were to be gone all day in a golf tournament. Over all I would recommend this hotel.
