I have not been here for about a year and they have clearly done some improvement. This includes the front desk staff. Now don't get me wrong, this is not a high-class hotel. It is suitable for a stop-over; just a place to sleep and continue travelling. The place is noticeably cleaner and does not have any smoky odours like... More

Stayed for 1 night and it was 1 night too long. Filthy, terrible bed, gross bathroom. Yuck. Always look before you stay I guess. We thought because it was a Howard Johnson it would be ok. We were wrong.

I wish I had read the review before I booked this hotel. This is the most DISGUSTING and FILTHY hotel in which we have ever stayed. The sheet, floor, ceiling, and curtain are covered with blood stain. We requested a room change and it was refused. We requested replacement clean sheets instead, and the reply from the staff was "trust... More

The location is the only thing this hotel has going for it. The rooms are filthy and far from appealing. There was sweet sickening smell to the room. I requested to switch rooms and front desk failed to accommodate. Foreign hairs and stains on the bed. Pay the extra $$ and stay away from this place.
