The hallways were very dirty, I had to wait along time for someone to check me in. It was very noisy and staff didn't seem to care.

The good: The pool area is big and spacious. There is a free golf club and golf balls for the children to play with. The pool itself is friendly for children of all ages. The hot tub is adults only and is deep so it is quiet and easy to get a good soak. The room was clean and appeared... More

When we checked into our room we were greeted with a dirty toilet seat, stained carpet and dirty finger prints on the doors and woodwork. We contacted the front desk and the toilet was finally cleaned. When I got into the shower later that night I was greeted with a very long hair that was stuck on the shower wall.... More

Paid cash for one night, Howard Johnson charged my bank card for 5 nights. Workers and management are thrives, false records. Will not refund the money they stole!! Don't stay there! Read all the reviews besides mine, mine is the worst cause they stole from me! But it is a nasty run down roach infested pit!
