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!

The hotel was clean and in easy walking distance to Casino and local restaurants. The rooms are nice and clean, Good continental breakfast. The management was very friendly and helpful, very much a family run establishment. With their help we dined in an excellent restaurant just a few minutes walk away. I would definitely recommend to my friends - best... More
