        The best aspect of the HJ's @ Kemptville was its location. I was happy to have a nonsmoking room,a tv, a few working lights(not all worked) and a heater that worked. So... Not being picky and not spending a lot of time in the room it was okay. I did check for bedbugs(none), but that might give you a hint of the hotel.

        The refrigerator kept the drinks cold.

        I didn't realize Howard Johnson owned such facilities. This was an old worn out motel.The ceiling was falling down, the wallpaper was patched with duct tape, the metal kleenex box cover was rusty. The "breakfast nook" was a table inside the front door, across from the reservation desk with a toaster on it. Very Welcoming.

        Location.WiFi available.

        No one at front desk. Rooms are tired.Linen is gray and thin.Bathroom fixtures are worn out. Bad smells.I Was surprised that HoJo would be affiliated with this facility. My on line booking was lost eventhough I had a confirmation number. No problem though, they had lots of rooms and probably always do.

        Friendly and welcoming staff. Caa discount - very affordable price. Two sinks in the room Coffee maker that by being one cup only, there's not pot to keep flavour so I could make tea without coffee tasting water. Thanks!

        All good!

        This is the third time we have stayed here in 6 years and this was a vast improvement over the first time. The fact the restaurant is now open is an added feature which should help here. I hope the restaurant and motel can strike up a deal so they can compete with the nearby restaurants.

        There was no heat in the room when we got there and they had not received our booking through you as of 3:30 the day after we had booked. It would be nice if you could be more expedient in sending through the bookings and if the motel could have at least minimum heat on when guests arrive especially in the winter.

        the girl at night who was also doing the laundry was very pleasant and spent a long time to get me a light bulb (there was none in the lamp) but she looked until she found one.

        it was not up to the standards I expect from HJ the yard had stuff all over the place , a lot of it was or should of been garbage. At one spopt particularly it was a total mess of kids toys, old chairs, junk +++ very rundown buildings and grounds I would tell anyone not to go there

        Location to family

        On check-out there was no electricity or water available. The hotel was old and musty. We were about the only tenent. Strongly suggest that Howard Johnson is hurthing their name brand by associating with such a dump.

        I liked the comfort of the rooms. The air conditioning and the fridge were in good working order, which was excellent considering our party had booked at least 8 rooms for a wedding in the town of Kemptville.

        The staff do not remain on site overnight. The bride and groom in our party were locked out of their room as their card didn't work upon arriving back at the hotel after the reception. Not an ideal way to spend their wedding night. If there is an emergency, best of luck as there was also no way to get in touch with any staff. It was good customer service, provided the staff was there, but 4 parties in our group were locked out of their rooms at some point (not including the bride and groom). Further, if you expect to get ice at this hotel, it is made by hand and will be put into your ice bucket also by hands of the staff at the front desk. We requested a full ice bucket, which also seemed to be an issue as they only wanted to give us half a bucket of ice.

        No one at reception at 7:30 pm when I arrived - had to call a phone numbet to get someone to book me in. Luckily had my cell phone as no house phone was available. Next morning I wanted to inquire where free breakfast was being served. Again no one was at reception and phone number left to call. I didn't bother - just left and bought breakfast at Tim Hortons.

        Should be closed down. Should never have the name Howard Johnson associated with it.

        Everything was wrong. The place is old and tired and not maintained properly. The service staff werent' at the front when I arrived and no contact #'s so I had to wait. They didn't have my reservation. The room smelled. The sheets were stained. The bathroom taps and toilet seat were nearly falling off. The towels were 'grey and frayed', I think they were supposed to be white. There was cobwebs on the windows, the 'lawn' was weeds. There was mold in the bathroom.....need I go on????

        Non existent staff, free breakfast was two plastic containers of cereal and an empty milk carton, my room key didn't work at 11:00 pm when I returned to the hotel and there was a note with a phone number to call and no phone to use. A waitress from a restaurant near the hotel helped me and I finally got into my room after 1:00 am. After two nights in the hotel my immaculately clean dog was loaded with fleas and I had to take her in to be flea bathed. I travel a lot ofor business and dog shows and this was the worst experience I have every had. Do yourselves a favor and remove this hotel from your listings. I intend to contact Howard Johnson directly about everything that happened to me there.

        The lady at the desk was very helpful to us and very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable.

        We went for breakfast at 7:00 in the morning because we had to get on our way early. There was no sign of breakfast being served or prepared. We went where we were told to go and no one was there. We had to go on and get our breakfast on the way at Tim Horton's. So much for our free breakfast.

        I liked the ho jo because of its proximity to the town of Kemptville. It's away from the traffic, on the opposite side of Hwy 416 from the town.

        I booked this hotel on line through Booked.net. I paid $85/night plus the taxes. I thought I was getting a decent price for the ho jo quality I am accustomed to. Well......... I overpaid....I Was in room #138 which was in the non smoking wing. I assumed this much because on every door there was a no smoking sticker. The place reeked of second hand smoke. It was awful. The room was just as bad. It reeked! The room was big enough for the 3 of us. There was no satelite...only 3 channels; the rest were all fuzzy. The towels in the bathroom were once white but no longer. They were partly grey and worn.....they had seen the better part of a thousand backsides over their lifespan. The head board on one of the beds was torn off the wall and stood in the corner. I mentioned to the office staff and he said he knew about it..... Our complimentary continental breakfast was cancelled due to the "chef" not showing up for work our first morning. Needless to say, we did not attempt the second breakfast. The breakfast menu consists of eggs and toast, french toast and frozen eggos... I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I saw this hotel. I had to be in Kemptville early for each morning so I could not switch to another hotel. I believe the closest one would be in Nepean (at least 30 minutes away). DO NOT STAY HERE. IT WOULD BE GOOD VALUE IF YOU WERE A BACKPACKER AND NEEDED A SHOWER AND A BED ONLY. I have been itching ever since I left so I'm convinced there were bed bugs or flies also. My ankles and feet are all bitten. STAY CLEAR OF THIS DUMP !
