Front desk was awesome. My room was clean and had everything I needed and SMELLED clean. Furniture is in need of replacement, but overall a good stay.

Great room for a small price. Two comfy queen beds, roomy room, and a good breakfast. We had spent the previous 3 nights in a vastly inferior motel for $25 more a night. I would have no qualms about staying at a Howard Johnson motel.

The guestroom smelled of a lot of cleaning fluid. Morning it smelled like a smokers room. Breakfast was a little less than average. People had to keep asking for items. Not as good as most continental breakfasts.

We are so sorry to hear that our hotel was less than satisfactory for your stay. We try to keep the rooms as clean as possible, but understandably so, the over powering smell of cleaning products isn't the desirable scent you want. We apologize for the lack of breakfast for you as well. However, we hope to have you stay... More

Building isn't a five star place, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, although the some of the furnishings were scratched up and dated. The room heater squeaked quite loudly when we turned it on and sounded like it needed to be lubricated or repaired. Minor annoyance. Everything worked, except the swimming pool which was... More

This hotel is a welcome stop for us as it is halfway between our home in Illinois to Denver Colorado. It is dated in some ways, but it is very clean and the staff is very friendly. The price is reasonable when all we want is a nights sleep. The breakfast is ok. Nothing fancy, but gets us on the... More

The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was nice having a hot tub and a heated indoor pool to go along with the reasonable room rate. No one bothered us the entire stay as far as knocking on the door or anything. My hunting partner and I will be back in the future!
