The Howard Johnson needs some updates. The pool is why we stayed there but it really needs repairs in that room.

2 good night's at Sams

Posted 5-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Two nights at Sams. I initially didn't like the hotel for its size and the smell of smokes from the casino. But my family and I ended up enjoying the hotel. Lots to see inside expecially the water fall and various animals. The food was also great. I will recommend it and will definitely go back.

Not so good...

I think this hotel could be much better with some maintenance. Its conditions are not good. My window was broken and the bathroom door did not close. Furthermore, the wi-fi signal was terrible.

Old Style Charm or Run Down?

Posted 21-Jul-2016
This is a hard case to decide. It has that old style charm, not another sterile cookie cutter hotels. But sometimes that translates into simply run down. Like the electrical outlet up against the bed with no plate and wires hanging out. The staff were great. The location is in hotel row, good for travel, not so much for seeing Helena. Cleanliness was fine.

Comfortable stay

Kind and helpful staff! Great breakfast choices. Familiar atmosphere i.e. decor in lounge area that was comfortable. Really clean room and bathroom. There could be some updates done on inside room door latches/locks - not very safe as is right now.

The people at the desk were very friendly and helpful. However, the building is way too dated. It is essentially the same hotel I visited when I went to college in town back in the early 80's. It is sad because it has so much potential and is in a great neighborhood and community

I hate to be negative, but...

Posted 28-Jun-2016 on Hotels
The guy at the desk was excellent. But the rest of my review is negative. The tv didn't work ( the guy at the desk came to our room to fix), the fan was NOISY, the shower curtain had frosting (or something) on it plus moldy on the inside, the wind whistled through the window, and we parked a mile away because there was no parking.
