Love the Howard! BBQ area cozy and quaint, like being in your own backyard. Grocery store convenient saving you money not having to dine out. Laundry facility only 1.25 to wash 1.25 to dry. Business center can fax copy at no charge. Property cleand and the rooms are large. Staff friendly and prompt. LOVE IT!

This is by far the worst place ever. Avoid at all costs, rude, shallow people run this place. I assist Taro P. (another Tripadviser Reviewer) with her travels and Ricardo did make a comment to me about Wyndham points being a 'free' room. Amy the assistant manager, canceled our room reservation last month just before we arrived according to the... More
