Very clean , quiet and nicely located with stores, restaurants and the Chinook mall all within walking distance. Furniture is a little dated but beds are comfortable and site is very secure. Parking close to your door. Great value .

First room smelled like cat urine had to be moved. Second room was extremely dirty. Breakfast was terrible, basically only had bread and the Orange juice was watered down. Overall a complete nightmare. DO NOT STAY HERE IT WAS HONESTLY BY FAR THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN!

Stayed for 1 night and it was 1 night too long. Filthy, terrible bed, gross bathroom. Yuck. Always look before you stay I guess. We thought because it was a Howard Johnson it would be ok. We were wrong.
