A place where you will fell safe. If you are on your way to Montreal....make a stop for the night....you will not be Decapointed.

The sign says Howard Johnson but the receipt says Orca sounds...and they leave an envelope in your your for donations. Bed was not made properly. No towels. Carpet is coming off the wall. Stains on the walls. Bathroom has mold in the corners and a build up of dirt in the corners on the floor.

We are sorry for any confusion that was caused by our hotel's name change. We are no longer part of the Howard Johnson franchise. Our sign is now an OrcaSound hotel sign, matching what is written on the receipt. The envelope in your room was not for donations; it simply had a message on it thanking you for staying with...

Not sure what to say - so many things were not right...but I strongly suggest you do not stay here - the rooms are not clean, the bedding was stained, there was about a 12" tear in the window covering, the room we had was tiny, cramped and very inconvenient. Bathroom sparse - no place to put even a toothbrush,...

Alot has changed at this hotel since your stay. We are no longer the Howard Johson. We are the OrcaSound Hotel. We now have an awesome housekeeping staff that would never make a bed using stained sheets, blankets or pillow cases. All of our curtains are intact with no tears or rips in them. We apologize that the room was...

I'm still shocked this is considered part of the Howard Johnson chain since none of the usual HoJo standards are maintained. The place is literally falling apart (the front door handle came off in my daughters hand). The rooms don't have air conditioning, but you can't leave the windows open because of the highway noise. There is no maid service,...

We checked into this hotel on June 11th of this year and planned to stay 4 nights. We could not get out fast enough. The room had not been vacuumed, the carpet was ripped and there was a musty odor in the room. When we walked up the stairs to our room, we were greeted with a pile of dirty...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Howard Johnson Inn of Rigaud in early June 2015, we were visiting our daughter who was staying in nearby Rigaud and we wanted to be as close as possible to her location as opposed to staying in Montreal and commuting. We chose this hotel mostly because of its recognizable name/company reputation...

I was looking for something clean, close (to place of business) and comfortable. This was just fine. It is on a much smaller scale of any other HoJo's that I've seen, but then again, it is located in a small town. I had an extremely peaceful sleep - literally could not hear a sound! (Thought perhaps I was the only...

I arrived the hotel at two o'clock in the morning, and quickly got one clean and cozy room to rest myself. p.s the clerk is kind. She helped print a map for me and showed me the way. Thank you! I was quite impressed staying this inn and hope to returned there again.
