Lindsay is hot in the summer. They need new air conditioning units. Also water pressure needs ajusting and better continential breakfast option

Back wall in room cut out for a window air conditioner, rattled horribly the whole night. My husband had to get up and remove the cover, which helped the noise some but it was filthy! Place needs a good cleaning and freshening up. Only good thing was polite counter staff at check in and breakfast was fine.

Our experience was very favourable. The front desk clerk was very helpful to us when we were trying to locate a fellow breeder and we were unable to locate a telephone number. He remembered in the morning when we saw him and it was very refreshing to know that he cared.

Based on what we read, we expected this to be a run down barely acceptable hotel. (Our first choice hotel was sold out) We were surprised to find a very clean well furnished room.

My family comes to Lindsay once or twice per year. We've tried a few of the other properties but have found the Howard Johnson to be the best value and they provide great service. The check in is smooth and rooms are well appointed with very comfortable beds and all the creature comforts you would find in a high end...

With all the competition in Lindsay I don't know why or how this place is still open. Everything was so dated and run down like a motel from an old horror movie and the breakfast was really scarce. The price was almost on par with the Days Inn which looks way nicer and has a pool. Next time I'm in...

Maybe I'm old but when I traditionally think of Howard Johnson I think hotel...not motel. This place was decent, very dated, breakfast was meh...wasn't impressed but wasn't gross. Way too much $ per night (even with our group rate) for this property
