Howard Johnson Kearney
Ranked #20 of 22 Hotels in Kearney
Reviewed 29 July 2016

This ancient run down hotel recently became a Wyndham franchise property when Days Inn stopped putting its name on the sign. I have stayed in foxholes that were cleaner than this place. The linens were threadbare, the beds were a torture rack, the desk chair was so filthy it would be rejected by a dump. The windows were so dirty you could barely see out of them and the frames pulled apart when I tried to open them to get some fresh air in a stinky room. I have stayed at some great Wyndham hotels over the years, but it is obvious their collection of brands have quality control issues. While Howard Johnson may have been a great chain decades ago, this hotel is exhibit number one in how far it has fallen into something below fleabag .
The room had a nice big flat screen TV and a microwave and small fridge that would not be accepted by the Salvation Army.

Room Tip: This hotel is on a major highway and the rooms in the front are noisy

Guest services employees were very friendly. Rooms were not the cleanest. Public restroom had no toilet or paper towels in it. Went to take a shower and there were bugs in the bath tub.

It was average but nothing to write home about. A lot of pets which causes extra noise. As a owner of three dogs I do love hotels that accept pets but the noise was so ridiculous that when I checked in I asked the gentleman if there was a dog daycare/hotel on the property as well.
