The hotel was under restoration; there was a lot of debris around the building and in the parking lot. The rooms were clean and newly painted. O,k, for the price.

The building is in need of a good paint job and the window near the lobby is cracked. However the hallway and my room was extremely clean. The room size is very large. The young lady that checked me in greeted me with a smile was very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

Last night of our holiday . It was appalling. Clearly being redecorated or demolished!. Painter's ladder on our balcony. Paint peeling off the exterior. Filthy net curtains on the window of the reception area which was the first thing guests saw upon arrival.

This place was so bad we decided we would rather drive another 5.5 hours home than spend 10 minutes in this place. The location is horrible and felt unsafe, the lobby was the worst I have ever seen, and the people hanging around were sketchy. I wanted to see the rooms and found the hallway to smell of urine and... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night this past weekend after a family trip to the nearby waterpark. The Howard Johnson in my neighborhood is nice, so I thought as a chain, they’d all be at a similar standard. Unfortunately, I was wrong and my family and I had to stay in this awful hotel. Here are the issues... More

Room 107 stinks like cigarettes, in a non smoking room, Horrible smelling room. Grungy towels, stained bedding. They need to condemn the motel, room 111 has mold growing... More

I'm sorry things wasn't up to your standards when you were here, I do apologize for that. I took a look at room 111 there is not mold growing in the drawer,the inside looks like candle wax was spelled in it, but that's for bringing that to my attention. Room 107 I totally agree with you about the smell of... More
