Out of the four nights I stayed, I only had hot water for a shower on one morning. On my last night, I was finally changed to a different room. To compensate me, they gave me a drink coupon! Unbelievable!

I would describe my recent stay at Howard Johnson of Traverse City as average. The breakfast was lacking with no hot food items. The cleanliness is average and the rooms could use some updates.

Very clean place. There needs to be more than 1 chair in the room. Also I will not get a room on the second floor again. Climbing the stairs every time with luggage etc. is just too much work.More

There was someone else’s hair on the bathroom wall BOTH DAYS. It’s obvious that housekeeping did not thoroughly clean the bathroom. I’ve stayed here before and the internet is always awful, no matter which room I stay in.
