Howard Johnson Inn - North Platte

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was expecting a hotel style, not a motel with room entrances to the outside. Because of that, the street outside was extra loud. Room was nice but not worth the price since I don't get much sleep because of the street noise.

The main reason I booked was because they advertised on orbitz they had laundry facilities. That was a no. We could see where they had been. Very disappointing !!

I just needed to spend one night on a road trip. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. The beds were comfortable.

Only stayed overnight passing thru. In comparing this motel to others in the same class I'd say it's about a 2. Room was old and kinda dumpy. Toilet was small. Shower was low so you have to crouch (I'm only 5'7). Not sure what was going on outside but cars seemed to be racing around on the street. There has to be a better choice nearby. I was in a pinch and they had a room, not surprisingly. Free breakfast was just ok. Grabbed a couple extra donuts for my drive and split. I wouldn't stay here with my wife and kids. And probably not if I was passing thru on my own again.

we had flies in first room, next room had dirty tub/shower and the beds were not very comfortable. the continental breakfast was just ok.

Beds were hard, sink was cracked with rust stains and the room smelled, had to buy a can of air freshener just to stay one night. Originally booked five nights canceled after one night.

Just an overnight - nothing special. Just needed a bed for the night - would stay again if I was in the area for the price.

Was not happy at all. WiFi would not connect from our room for more than five minutes. Tried on 6 different devices without any success. TV was not wired to the cable box correctly so no TV, except I had an HDMI cable that worked. A/C leaked onto the carpet. Coffee maker cord was not long enough to reach the outlet. Had just been painted, both towel racks came off the wall at first use.,

Wanted a cheap hotel for the night. So it fit my budget. Could use a few updates, mainly to bathtub. But otherwise fit what was needed for the night.

Pretty expensive, more than I've spent at much nicer hotels, but I guess you can't complain when you don't want to drive in a snow storm. The room was clean, just old and with an outside door.

Friendly staff and clean hotel :-) the breakfast was filling, delicious and plenty of variety

Very outdated and in need of a lot tlc. Ants on the floor. Mold in the bathroom. Expected much more out of a major chain motel.

You got what you paid for. The staff was nice and the room was clean:

I had to drive to North Platte for an emergency issue and needed a place to stay. Just needed a bed. Bed was comfortable, lights were ok, air conditioning was perfect, wifi worked great. Issues: a giant crusty dead bug was stuck to the ceiling....not sure how housekeeping could have missed that on a white ceiling... it was gross... I hit it off and then parts of the ceiling came down with it..., TV stopped playing like 15 minutes into watching, some things were strewn about the room when I got in... some placard, the bag holder (whatever that is called), and the phone. Overall I think that for what I needed the room was fine, would I have liked a bit nicer care of the room? Absolutely.

I was impressed with the friendly staff. Thier recommendations were spot on. Will remember on my way home from Montana.

This hotel needs a renovation overhaul. Not to mention the garbage and cigarette butts around. There were stains in the white towels. The cost definitely did not match the quality. Very friendly staff though.

Mold in showers had to switch rooms. Pool needs attention. And the bathrooms for the pool where disgusting. Will not stay there again

Dirty, out-dated, dimly-lit. They said they were starting a remodel, it is badly needed.

The hotel looked like it was closed with no light on. Good value and location and nice staff

This place is under construction-we understand the normal "inconveniences" associated. This motel needs to be closed until finished, then a Grand Re-opening. Nothing was OK, except the front desk clerk did try and was friendly. The price was outrageous for the old mattress, bedding, (never before even seen such disgusting pillows!), plumbing screwed up for hot and cold and not consistent, poor lighting, molding and finishing touches after paint job not completed, mediocre continental breakfast. How could this place be acceptable to either this hotel chain or this search site????????????????????????? We are reconsidering our use of either.
