My family recently stayed in small town Gananoque for my cousins wedding and we stayed at the Howard Johnston. Upon late arrival we were greeted by a very friendly man who was soft spoken, very helpful and polite. He gave us the run down on the town and what Gananoque had to offer. On our way to the room you could tell there was some renovations happening, we entered the room and were very surprised. The rooms are big, clean and cozy. Nothing was low end or looked over. I was very pleased with our stay and looking forward to seeing these renovations complete. My family will definitely be returning in the summer to this motel and explore some more of this beautiful town. Hope this is helpful to someone looking for a very reasonable priced clean room in the heart of the town.

This "hotel" is really not a hotel, let alone a motel. You pay $80 a night to get a crappy moldy room, stale food for breakfast and horrible service.

Our room looked like it wasn't maintained for 20 years! The room was smelly and moldy, (especially the washroom) and there were was a shelf that fell off! Housekeeping couldn't be bothered to clean your room properly, and just made the ebbs and left! In the hallway outside the room, there are cobwebs everywhere.

When you go to the main building and reception you notice that the managers family are using all the computers and chairs. The person who should be at the front desk is socializing with her family at the sofa and computer. To top that off breakfast is worst than pig's food. Stale bread, cereal with warm milk and some old fruits.

Unless you are somebody that doesn't mind these things, I do not recommend this so called "hotel" to anyone, especially couples, families and business men, for this hotel will ruin your trip/ holiday.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor otherwise you have to lug your luggage up a flight of stairs.

Very run down and need of a total make over! Poor breakfast, dirty pool (no shower area before using the pool), there was a big group of family the night we stayed so lots of noise all night. Cold staff. Location is good, short drive to the boat launch and beach. We would choose a different one next time.
