Conviennent for staying in a hotel at the last min

Posted 9-Jan-2017
The only issue I had was the housekeepers took forever to get me extra towels while I was in the shower.

It's okay, but will stay elsewhere next time.

Posted 27-Dec-2016
Pros: Easy to get to - right off the highway.
Cons: Staff could pass along information pertinent to a traveller's stay there.
Location: If you stay at the HoJo, go to the Ground Round for a meal. Great staff there.
When we booked HoJo this time, we didn't know the restaurant had closed down. When we checked in, we were not told that the hotel offers a continental breakfast, either. So the first morning, we went out for breakfast. It was only because I was walking to the front desk that I saw a small sign that said breakfast 6:30 to 9:30 am. And I asked about it when I got to the front desk. Yep, continental breakfast each morning. We ended up spending a lot of time in the downtown area of Bangor, so next time we book, we'll pony up the extra $20 to $30 a night and book downtown.

Comfortable, recently updated room. No complaints

Posted 26-Dec-2016
Pros: The room was renovated with granite (type) bathroom counter and furniture tops. Very Clean and eye appealing.
Cons: Cookies in the lobby?
Location: Location was convenient in the area we wanted.
We have stayed at many different hotels. This was less expensive than most, quiet and we got a good nights sleep.

Cheap and Clean.

Inexpensive, comfy, and clean. Can't ask for much more than that. Especially for $60....

Very disappointed

Posted 12-Dec-2016
Misrepresentation. No restaurant or lounge site, but was advertised that they had one. Rooms outdated and had a musty smell. I mentioned it to the manager on duty and he said that he couldn't do anything for me, not even a price reduction or a credit. The complimentary continental breakfast had old bread, stale muffin and no juices. Seriously.

Best sleep

Posted 22-Nov-2016
Pros: I like having the minifridge and microwave in room...we often pick up something on our shopping outings to bring back to room to eat.
Location: it is very close to highway 95 and the airport. Easy access to bangor malls or casino. Walking distance to Ground Round which is a great restaurant
Stayed at various places in Bangor, but found Howard Johnsons several years ago and by far best value for money. Always have trouble sleeping away from home, but the king sized bed very comfy. We were pleasantly suprised to hear that they now offer a continental breakfast for their guests. It wanst a huge variety but did have waffles for a hot breakfast and fruit and oatmeal for healthier options along with some mini muffins etc. With juice and coffee, certainly sufficient. Staff is always helpful whether its the front desk or the sweet Indian couple from housekeeping. Looking forward to our next visit

they are crooks,

Posted 14-Nov-2016
Pros: location other than that nothing.as stated I was not happy so what else needs to be said
Cons: they charged me a cleaning fee for cleaning the room for smoking I have never smoked and be sides they should have inspected the room and check out not put a crooked charge on my credit card, besides you are not allowed to smoke in the room what if you smoked outside then when into the room
