Howard Johnson Express Hotel Review

: Located on the quieter side of downtown, this motel is a quick walk from most city center attractions, such as the new Gateway Shopping Center and the Delta Center. The motel is simple and inexpensive with a retro Sixties look, and the location makes it a great value for the price. The dumpy exterior of this former Royal Executive Inn gives way to surprisingly spacious guest rooms, some of which feature balconies. Some of the suites offer kitchenettes, which are positioned so close to the sleeping areas that it brings new meaning to breakfast in bed. This limited-service property offers a sparse continental breakfast in its functional, light-infused lobby, as well as free airport transportation. An outdoor, seasonal pool, guest laundry facilities and free local calls sweeten the deal.
