He made me feel...

Love this hotel. Very good breakfast bar, and staff is always friendly. I didn't check to see if they applied the rewards I earned on this stay. I hope they did.

I can't say enough great things about the Howard Johnson in Lima. We have held several events in the banquet rooms and I have also attended a few weddings there as well. I have been to other Howard Johnson hotels and none of them compare to this one. I felt like I was at a Holiday Inn; the layout is...

I have attended a variety of business meetings at the Lima HoJo, and am always pleased with the quiet atmosphere and friendly service. The hotel lobby is inviting and everything has a clean presence. The meeting rooms accommodate many, if not all, of our meeting/convention needs. I would recommend the HoJo for any business meeting or event.

I stayed at the Lima Howard Johnson for business a few weeks back, and I will NOT make that mistake again. At first glance the hotel lobby look ok, I understand it is a former Holiday Inn/Holidome, so indoor pool, rooms looking over pool/courtyard area, again, not too bad. I then got to my room.
