                          room was great

                          staff - not really interested breakfast - meagre overcharged the room

                          If you are staying there as a family on the weekend not good spot....young prostitutes all over the parking lot all weekend very discusting to see.....if it wasnt for that would've been fine but because of that I will never stay there again

                          10.0

                          After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit apprehensive but our room was excellent, very clean, big room with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, iron & board, flat screen tv, desk, chair..it was excellent. The service was excellent as well..we were given a room with 2 double beds for the same price as a room with 1 bed & a pull out couch, to accommodate my 85 year old mother-in-law. The free breakfast was excellent as well...cereals, bagels, english muffins, toasts, muffins, juices, coffee, tea, bananas, apples, cream cheese, peanut butter, jams..it was all good. Free Internet :) The price was absolutely fantastic for our one night stay...thank you Booked.net

                          The only thing was that the pipes made noises..but no big deal..otherwise it was a very quiet motel.

                          Not a lot, first time there and would not stay again. This is a very old facility that has had a coat of makeup applied and not very well. The towels were grey, not white and very old. There was a lot of dirt around the edges of the floor. I have stayed in a lot of $49.95 a night places and this is not as good as a lot of them. They do not have a cpsa rate.

                          It was available.

                          We are an elderly couple and we had to put $100.00 as a security deposit because we never used a credit card I feel that was not necessary

                          8.8

                          Pleasently surprised at the size of the room, very comfortable and the price was ideal for a quick business trip. If returning to North Bay in the future I would definitely stay there again.

                          Cemtral location. Interesting building design very private.

                          Old and dated. Repairs to ceiling substandard. Bed uncomfortable. Old and dated

                          7.4

                          Close to the lake.

                          Some noises at night in the washroom area.

                          Just a warning: with this motel being so close to downtown you'll end up with some young people in the room next to you loudly partying half the night away.

                          It was in downtown and I manage to wal around to get to know the place and get to the frozen lake easily. Price is fair, It was clean, quiet.

                          I slip in the shower the first time and hit my head with the toilet. Its a miracle that nothing happened to my head or to me. I suggest to put anti slippery stuff permanent in all bath tubs.

                          Friendly staff. Central location within walking distance to Main St and the lake area

                          I have written about this issue three weeks ago regarding another Howard Johnson hotel in a different city in Ontario. You advertise "Continental Breakfast" and all it is, is very stale bagels and bread that have been repeatedly refrigerated. I took one of the seven stale bagels on Monday, and tried to toast it by Thursday there were still six left, going to show that no one ate them. Why? Why? Why? The unintersting stale food. Show some care in presentation and freshness and you will have your hotels/motels worthy of all around mention.

                          I was in town for a pool tournament. It was close to the pool hall, so cab rides were cheap. Thick concrete wall gives a good sound barrier between rooms and floors.

                          My room smelled like smoke, even though it was a non smoking room. Carpet had stains on it, I thought sheets were clean, then noticed hairs on the sheets that weren't mine. Rooms were very cold and no clear instructions to turn on heat. Cleanliness and quality of the room didn't live up to my standards of what i've experienced other hojo'S.

                          The location was convenient to where I was going. The room was clean and the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful.

                          The neighbourhood seemed desolate and run down, The Hojo was not aesthetically pleasing from the outside,
