It would have been nice to have an ironing board and iron in the room, however, the hotel did furnish one. It would also have been nice to have a hot tub in the pool area.

The hotel is old but clean. Room is nothing special. Rate wasn't too high. We had to leave a day early because of an issue at home. They still charged us for that day because the reservation was uncancellable. We scouted out other hotels in the area which were a lot nicer. We won't stay at Howard Johnson again.

Stayed here one night. Good place and nice staff. I did find someone's socks under the bed and returned them to the Front Desk. Rooms were truly non smoking, which is great. Good stay overall, thank you.

The person at the front desk was very sweet at times but also kind of stuck up, I got a "no respect for young people" king of attitude from her. The pool was cool but it was extremely filthy! Us as guests had to clean... More

Please help us. We prepaid but only stayed 1 night due to other circumstances. We explained it to Manager Valerie and she released us from the remaining 5nights at Howard Johnson. We need confirmation that our prepaid charges have been credited back to our account. I use my favorite site often and need your help. I have written Venere Travel... More
