The parking area is horribly rutted and there is only 1 light out back, so you need your cars headlights to see to unlock ground level door. The rooms are really small, but clean. The same with the bath room. The paint is peeling off the bathroom ceiling. The worst of all, the sheets were stained. I never thought I... More

Comfortable room with all the basics. A little hard to find as there is only a small sign by the road and the building exterior is stark.

Stayed at the Howard Johnson in Sarnia for a week while relocating for work. The hotel offered reliable internet, and affordable rates. Located near many restaurants and a short trip away from the city center, the Howard Johnson was very good.

Our room was damp. The a/c didn't work and it was 30 degrees out. Called and asked to be moved to a unit with a/c but we're brought a fan instead. We stayed 2 nights and housekeeping didn't even make the beds. The bathroom had no fan and was disgustingly humid. The fixtures were rusting due to so much humidity.... More
