“Cheap, quiet & clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Stayed at the Howard Johnson in Bangor. A huge improvement from a stay 2 years ago. Very clean, quiet @ only $49.99 a night. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Rooms are on the small side, but had a refrigerator and microwave.

I have stayed at the Howard Johnson's in Bangor on many occasions and was pleased to see that they are undergoing a number of upgrades. While work still remains to be done there were new bed coverings, new door locking system, updated heat and a/c units, new flat screen tv's and refrigerators and microwaves in all rooms. Desk clerk told me they were under new ownership and more work was being done in the coming months. The room looked and smelled clean. Although I would suggest that the windows needed a good washing my overall impression was that they are headed in the right direction and the price is still very reasonable.

This was the first time I've stayed at Howard Johnson. I usually stay at Country Inn by the mall, but it was booked for the night. After shopping on Travelocity.com, we found this room to seem to be a great deal. The photos on the website looked very nice but upon arrival, it was just ok. There was a door between our room and the next (an adjoining room), and for some reason we were able to hear every an all conversations of the next room. We were also awaken several times by snoring in the next room.... Maybe having better insulated doors would be a great investment.
The next time I'm in the area and Country Inn is not available again, I will for sure spend a little extra and not stay at Howard Johnson. For the $130 I spent (usually spend like 75 at the country inn with my corporate rate) I feel like my stay should have been MUCH better!

Although I have stayed here two times previously, this was my best visit by far. I booked online with Hotels.com and paid $224. for a three night stay/3 people. It was a girls shopping trip, and really was just a place to sleep for us. There have been some noticeable improvements since two years ago when I last visited (fridge and microwave in room, and new 40" flat screen), but as of yet, the carpets and decor have not been updated. The carpets definitely had a smell. Overall, the motel was quiet, even though they were booked, and we were so exhausted at the end of the day, we slept like babies! The rooms were clean, but not spotless.The restaurant is great for breakfast and very good value, but we didn't eat any other meals there. I would stay again, but not the place for a romantic getaway. It served our purpose though.
