“my stay at hojo's”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

during the past few weeks i and my family have stayed here at the howard johnson in madison wisconsin. we have been treated with the most curteous service and respect, the room service is excellent. during the day breakfast is served and one of the staff greets you with a "good morning and how are you doing". there are so many good things to say, i can only end by saying "welcome to Madison and if you stay here you will find your stay most enjoyable.

My wife and I were stranded in the area due to vehicle mechanical failure and spent several days at this property . The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs .The hotel was an older building , but was adequate for the needs of an average traveler . The breakfast isn't fancy by any means , but it is hot and fresh every day . The pool and game area are definitely above average and is a selling point for staying there ... The only " negative " thing I can really say ...is that their WiFi is poor at best and trying to use a cell phone is a difficult task .

When I went into my room I discovered to my horror brown stains covering the inside of the toilet bowl. The managers need to check the rooms before allowing guests in.

Thank you for your review of the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel. Although this is an older property, we are continually making improvements on the overall appearance of the hotel. I will forward this to our housekeeping manager, We do inspect every room before they are rented to guests to ensure these things never happen in the future! We are in the process of a remodel, we just recieved new beds for the whole hotel, new work out facility, and we also just reupdated our largest indoor pool in madison! We are soon to be upgrading our T.V's aswell! We do take pride in cleanliness and our friendly staff. Please accept this as an apology and we hope your experience doesn't deter you from staying at Howard Johnson Plaza in the future.

Warmest Reguards,
The Staff at the Howard Johnson Plaza

Prior to a guest arriving, I would suggest the heat be turned on in their room. Temps outside below 0 at my check-in and no heat on in room.
