“Great value and clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2009

We stayed in Howard Johnson Inn Woodstock for the first time. We were here visiting family. I looked at the website and was reluctant to stay because of the reviews from the previous guest. But I wasn't ready to pay over $120 for a room which one of the local hotel was charging also. We stopped at the hotel and my wife asked to look at the room before we stayed.
To our surprise the rooms were very nice and the bathrooms were very clean. We had the convenience of parking the car in front of the room. The staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place.

We were forced off the road due to weather, we booked 2 rooms and they were disgusting! They both had a terrible smell, both toilets clogged, (rooms 28 and 29) are right by the septic field, both rooms were infested with ants, and needless to say, with bugs crawling, no one got any sleep!!
Except for the fact that roads were being washed away and the lightning storm made driving impossible, we would have continued on to Fredricton

This place is digusting. The room stank of pets and the numerous stains on the carpet worried me - no doubt all previous guests let their pets use the floor as their personal bathroom. The room was dirty and old overall; oddly the bathroom was reasonably clean. The Mountain View restaurant was dreadful - we ordered dinner and skipped breakfast. The service was awful - the waitress sounded like she wanted to commit suicide, which given the poor quality of the place isn't suprising. The pool was pretty filthy but we enjoyed it all the same. Good to relax after a long drive. My suggestion is to drive right past and sleep in your car if you have to. Heck, buy a tent! Anything but this place.

I've stayed at the Woodstock Howard Johnson many times during the last 2 years. I am pleased to say that the staff at Howard Johnson were excellent because any needs or concerns that I had, they did their best to make my stay welcome. Also the rooms are beautiful, and the pool was just lots of fun.

I will continue going to the Howard Johnson everytime I pass through Woodstock Howard Jonson.

Well Done!

This is where you go when there are no other choices. Rooms are small and noisy. Dining room was OK for breakfast. Prices are high for the value received.

  • Liked — Proximity to highway
  • Disliked — Small rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't go unless you have to.

My wife and three kids recently stayed at the Howard Johnson's in Woodstock because our first choice (the Best Western) was fully booked. We paid $132.23 after tax for a 2 double-bed room. The Howard Johnson is an old, drive-up-to-your-room motel located on the TransCanada.

Cons

1) We booked online and a fake chat window comes up telling you about a discount, but the catch is that they want to sign you up, for $9.99 a month to your credit card, to the Howard Johnson frequent stay plan. You'll get charged if you don't call to cancel. Thanks, but no thanks.

2) We asked for a cot and received an unhelpful "we don't have cots" instead.

3) The motel is fairly old and dingy, with peeling paint, dirty grout in the bathroom, etc.

4) No breakfast included.

5) The double beds seem somehow smaller than normal double beds. Probably my imagination, but it sure seemed real at 3:00 in the morning. And 3:30. And 4:00... My daughter, the one who didn't get the cot and slept on the floor in a sleeping bag, had the best sleep.

6) Not quite as convenient as the Best Western for getting to restaurants, strip mall, Walmart, and gas station. You have to get back on the highway and get off quickly to get there.

Pros

1) No mice (but the con is that I was fully expecting some).

2) Fairly large pool, and deep too. You have to ask for towels at the front desk. The hot tub was not functioning.

3) An empty fridge in the room, which was handy.

4) The motel makes you feel like jumping in your car at the crack of dawn and completing your long driving trip. It is strangely motivational in that way.


Bottom line - Stay at the Best Western instead, which is what we did on our way back a week later. Same price for a fairly new clean hotel, a room with two queen beds, a cot when we asked for it (at no extra charge), breakfast included, free DVDs, etc. Read the reviews for it. If the Howard Johnson was half the price, maybe it would be a consideration.

  • Liked — The pool
  • Disliked — Small uncomfortable beds, lack of cleanliness, etc.
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay elsewhere

During my trip i happened to pass by Woodstock and stayed at the Howard Johnson's for a couple of days, i must admit that i was very impressed by the quality of service that i got from the courteous staff that worked at the hotel. I was most amazed with the service that the front desk clerk by the name of Sandra had given me. I arrived quite late and to be greated with such a wonderul smile was nice.
When it comes to staying away from home i get quite picky on the quality of rooms but their rooms were not only clean but very comfortable. The fact that they had a restaurant on the premises meant i did not have to go far for a good breakfast or lunch.
I came back home and definately recommended this Motel to all my friends and co-workers.
They should keep up the excellent work and best service.
I would like to say a great big thank you to all the staff at the Howard Johnson in Woodstock New Brunswick for making my stay a memorable one.
