Breakfast was meager tho it is advertised as better than average on the marque. The best thing about... More

When I checked in there was a young lady from Nepal was there to help. On a 10 scale I would rate her a 15 when it came to customer service. The rest of my stay with this Howard Johnson I would rate a 9 . The only down fall would be the cost.
