“Don't listen to the whiners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

I really get tired of all the complainers who book a Hojos but want a VIP $500/night experience. Clean rooms, nice beds, the front desk wants to know if anyone's noisy after 11pm. Great place for the money. Best beds in our entire 2 week road trip from Wyoming.

Although the hotel may be old, the rooms have been updated. The bathrooms are ADA compliant and the air conditioner has a remote control so you can control the temperature and fan speed without getting out of bed. The second floor room had good sound insulation as we barely heard the traffic going by outside on SR 2. The free breakfast consisted of toast, waffles, cereal, milk, juice, and coffee.

The room was very clean and we had no problems. The staff was very courteous and helpful

The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the downtown area and we were happy to leave our car parked in the hotel's garage area when we walked to town. The garage area is limited and it is first come, first serve. The car kept nice and cool in the hot summer sun.

The city park is also a 10 minute walk and it is huge! Great place to go if you want to get away from the crowds and see lots of nature. It is also a great place to go if you have kids or pets so they can get some down time from shopping.

We were looking for a place with a pool. The HJ turned out to be very good value, old but comfortable. The kids love to swim and even the pricier places often had no pool. We found the room to be a little musty smelling, but the beds and bedding appeared new. Even though we were on the second floor facing the road the room was quiet enough on a Saturday night to sleep well. Water pressure was excellent and the staff were very helpful with local knowledge. Free breakfast with the nice waffle machines that are becoming so popular. Kids always love that.

Room Tip: I would recommend the upper floor, we spoke to another visitor at the free breakfast who told us the...

Bedbugs!!! Dirty, with live bed bugs crawling around. Do not go here!! Room appeared older and decent for the price, but it smelled stuffy and musty. We settled in, laid down to relax, and I got bitten!!, jumped up, and saw a little red bug skittering across the white sheet. GROSS!!! Left immediately, sleeping in our car now tonight....

We would like to apologize about your recent stay. Unfortunately, during this time of year we have many different variety of bugs that start to come out from the surrounding area. We have checked all of our rooms and no bed bugs have been found. Cleanliness and guest satisfaction is very important to us and we treat each case very serious. Cleanliness is one of our main compliments at our property and we are very disappointed about your stay. We hope to see you in the future so we may prove that we can do better.

I was travelling with my mother on her trip of a lifetime to USA. I booked this hotel as I always stay in Wyndham Hotels. I know their standards are excellent. We arrived before check in and were able to get in early. Our room was on the second floor, easy to get to and I was impressed. Beds were so comfortable, room was clean and front desk girl very friendly. Elderly mother did have trouble turning on the faucet in sink. Did not pull out very easy. The veiw of the mountains was beautiful till I looked down into a dirty, trash filled pool area. It was early May so pool not open yet.
We are planning another trip and i will definately stay here again.
Now the bad news, in the morning breakfast girl was vague when I asked how to do the waffle maker and walked away from me. She then stood in the restroom on her cell phone for 15 mins and coffee ran out. The staff did not wear any form of uniform or name badges except the front desk agent, In fact breakfast girl had her coat on.
I recommend this hotel for location, cleanliness and hope the breakfast girl improves her attitude.

Room Tip: We were on second floor close to elevator. No noise and looks out onto the mountains.

This was a great deal on a discount website for us and I was actually pleasantly surprised with the upgrades made to this basic hojos motel. The beds have pillow top mattress with modern sheets and pillows. Nice new tvs, a mini fridge and coffee maker. The bathroom was old but clean.
3 1/2 stars, I'd stay again, as it was perfect for a one night sleep as we were driving on our way early the next morning and did not want to spend too much money for a short stay. Bonus, free parking and is it is walkable to the town center for meals!

Hojos has a free cont bfast in the morning, but why bother with cereal and the like.. when there are so many great places to order a delicious hot bfast in Leavenworth.

I'm generally a generous rater, & a pretty easy customer to please, but the Howard Johnson of Leavenworth provided an overall poor experience for our weekend getaway.
Check-in was not allowed until 3:00 pm, we arrived at 2:30 & they told us to come back in an hour!
My weekend stay took place the 11th of February & charges where not applied to my card account until the 24th.
The room was relatively clean, but the overall up-keep of the facility was poor.
Spend an extra $25 dollars & book elsewhere.

Room Tip: Any place but here.
