      The Staff was wonderful, we loved the amenities the room had, and we also enjoyed the breakfast the next morning. We would definitely stay at this Hotel again.

      The location was ideal for our needs.

      The staff prepared waffles for the guests in the morning.

      Location of Tim Hortons and Tim hirtons customers from 4.00 in the morning,, vehicle lights and noise.

      We stayed overnight en route to Detroit and it did the job as a clean and comfortable stop. It's a bit homespun, make your own waffles for breakfast, the staff will help out with any problem and it's kind of impersonall but comfortable.

      We came by train and its a long taxi ride to get there. It's also a bit remote so going into town is not easy by public transport or by foot. There are no on site resturants, the nearest is 15mins walk, not a problem but you need a compass to locate them!! There is a Tim Horton's next door, a kind of snack bar which is good and clean but not gourmet.

      Great value for money :) and very friendly and helpful staff.

      Breakfast could have been just a little earlier..

      I didn't like my stay. The name "Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel" is very misleading. It's a old motel that needs renovating.

      The Howard Johnson advertised free wireless internet in the rooms but there was none. The room smelled. The room, carpeting, bathroom fixtures, tv and, I'm assuming, the bed were out of the sixties. The toilet did not flush properly. The smoke detector chirped, I assumed from low battery, and when I alerted the front desk they did nothing to correct it (I ended up taking the batteries out to stop the noise.) The only access to the motel was through the lobby doors which sometimes meant a bit of a long walk, even though there were other entrance doors that said they were unlocked until midnight, they were kept locked. On a big sign out front the Howard Johnson advertises "Elegantly Renovated" - un, no, it's definitely not.

      Location is great, as we were passing the city in the US border direction

      The breakfast was over at 10 am, and we were late

      the Tv volum was not restrained

      the taste of the instant coffee in the bedroom the old look of the bathroom

      The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in. The room was very clean, spacious, and it was quiet.. Which was just what we were looking for.

      The continental breakfast with waffles was awesome

      What am I suppose to use it for? If I didn't like something at your hotel then it would be a complaint--wouldn't it? It was suppose to be newly renovated rooms. The room was decorated fairly nicely---except this gross leather pull out couch.. It was disgusting and dirty looking and you couldn't even sit in it because you caved in. I will not go back because of this reason. How could anyone think this was appropriate? It made the room feel dirty. I asked for extra blankets and received a couple of ratty old blankets that were full of fuzz balls---gross!

      The rooms (and halls, it appears) have recently been refurbished. They are attractive and comfortable (and quiet). For our purposes, the location was perfect as we were about three minutes drive from the event we were attending. Also, the location is easy to find and on one of the major arteries in and out of Windsor.

      Their breakfast area was very small and quickly became congested as the four small tables filled up. I found that to be uncomfortable not only for sitting and eating one's breakfast, but also for accessing the breakfast table. We've never run into quite such a tight situation and hope that they will figure out a way to rectify it.

      Large remodeled rooms, excellent mattress and pillows, 1300 hr check in time.

      Waffle machine at continental breakfast.

      There was a spider in my pillow on the first night, gross.

    • Single

      Huge room, refrigerator which I needed and microwave which if I had to stay a few days I would have used, comfortable bed and extra pillows. Continental breakfast so I didn't have to leave the building or stop elsewhere. Quiet---I was worried about the "Tim's" drive thru, but it wasn't an issue. I really loved the chimes on the big grandfather clock.I was also pleased to be able to have my new baby kitten with me for the night as this was the purpose of my trip.

      Narrow hallways . Should have automatic/ handicap door access at the entrance.

      We found the accommodations a wonderful surprise - really liked the spaciousness of the rooms and the decor
