The room and fixtures exceeded our expectations. The staff was always willing to answer questions on local attractions, always smiling and would always wish us a good day or have a good nights sleep whenever we entered the office. Would my family and I comeback....already making plans for Spring Break 2016. Great job, Ho Jo.

We travel every weekend for our girls softball and without a doubt this was the worst hotel. Mold in the restroom. towels were stained. Bathtub needed repairs. It was overall a mess. I understand old, but a state of disrepair is not acceptable. I will not stay in another Howard Johnson hotel.

Pick another location if possible. Night crew were rude upon arrival. Refused to allow guest from another visit. Stated two to a room despite mentioning that the visitor were registered on the property in a separate room.

Great location but they don't seem to make any effort to keep the place up. The breakfast was a joke and the girl behind the desk made no effort to make it even slightly better. The place was a mess and there wasn't enough milk for the kids cereal. The parking lot was a mess with trash on the ground... More

the bed could have been a little more comfortable, the pool should be open longer we couldn't use it because we didn't get back before 9 probably could use a coat of paint inside.
