Friendly staff. Easy check in and out. Rooms could use dome updating. Tvs are old so the picture is fuzzy. Hot tub in bathroom was nice.

Very nice and clean room. Hospitable staff.Very convenient place to stay.The bathroom was clean and worked well.There is a 10% discount offered with the HJ card at the Mystic diner restaurant which had some great menu.
Air conditioning, refrigerator and coffee maker were plus in the room and certainly made it a very welcoming place.

A clean, convenient and quiet motel. The HoJo delivered a lot for a small motel just off the highway. The room was nice, clean and relatively quiet. The fan and air conditioning worked well. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee added something. The bathroom was clean and worked well.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Howard Johnson Hotel in mid-May 2014 during our vacation to Mystic, CT. It was our first time visiting Connecticut. Thank goodness I found this hotel after going on TripAdvisor to read the reviews. There were few vacancies, at hotels in the general area, for a couple of the days we were staying. I planned a quick vacation due to time contraints and originally found another hotel, close by, which I had reserved rooms at after only looking at the pictures on that hotel's website. However, the next day, I thought it best to go on TripAdvisor to read reviews, of that hotel, and I discovered most reviews were really bad and the guest pictures really showed just how bad the hotel was. I quickly canceled my reservation there and after doing a search, on TripAdvisor, found the Howard Johnson in Mystic. After seeing so many favorable reviews, I pulled up the hotel website and discovered there were only two rooms left, so I quickly called the front desk to make reservations. One of those rooms had just been booked, when I called, so I got the very last room (lucky for us)! I requested a room which did not face the highway (since one reviewer said that side is a little noisy) and I also had other requests. When we checked in, I was pleased to learn we could more than likely be accommodated with the room location I preferred. The front desk offers a free map, of Mystic with surrounding areas and landmarks/attractions and they have print outs of directions to local destinations. The hotel lobby was spacious and clean with a large aquarium with colorful fish inside. We arrived much earlier, than the check-in time, and though the hotel could not check us in then (the rooms still needed to be cleaned), they did offer for us to come back in a couple of hours, which was great. This also ensured we got the room we preferred. The room was clean and quiet ( we could barely hear the guest who were next door to us). The room is practical in terms of decor, etc. but functional. The bathroom is on the small side but it was functional and clean. The flat screen TV was nice and there were several cable channels on TV, thus a lot of flexibility for TV programs. When we arrived, we also received a blank card key if we wanted to eat next door and this was a nice gesture (that restaurant offers 10% off the food with the Howard Johnson card key). However, we opted to eat at another local restaurant, for breakfast, that was recommended by the hotel manager. The hotel does not offer free continental breakfast but there are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants to choose from, which are nearby. We found a large grocery store called "Big Y" which is not far, either. The hotel is close to downtown Mystic and only a few minutes to The Mystic Aquarium. We also visited the resort casinos (The Foxwoods and The Mohegan Sun) which were about 20 to 30 minutes away. Since we are not gamblers, we opted not to stay at the casino resort because we preferred a more tranquil atmosphere within a small town, so Mystic appeared to be a great choice (and it was). All of the hotel staff, including housekeeping, were great and attentive (we mostly interacted with TERRY, FRANZ & TRICIA and they were all very helpful and congenial). I called the front desk, when we left each morning so they could alert housekeeping we were out and the room could be cleaned. Every day, our rooms were ready before we arrived back at the hotel, which was great. One day, I noticed the gutter, above our entrance door, was quite loose after a wind came by. I immediately notified the front desk and literally 10 minutes later, when we were leaving to go out again, we saw their maintenance staff securing the gutter down. This was very fast and responsive. There is adequate free parking at the hotel. We received all of our wake-up calls on time. The hotel offers free internet and it consistently worked (another plus). They also have a computer which guests can use (free of charge), in the lobby. The hotel prices are reasonable, as well, and was cheaper than the below average hotel I originally made reservations at. Check-out was not until 12:00 PM (noon). See my separate TripAdvisor reviews on the Mystic restaurants, casino resort venues & the aquarium.
