Smelly...not enough blankets
Just awful......service is not that great. Isn't worth what we paid to stay there...The only thing that was good is I got to keep dog in the room. Breakfast wasn't that great.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family
Thank Stephanie Z

Kyle M, Front Office Manager at Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Madison, responded to this review, 6 May 2014
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 manager, We do inspect every room before they are rented to ensure they are up to guests and HOJO Standards. 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 also just finished upgrading our T.V's to Flatscreens! 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
