For a short stay airport hotel this Howard Johnsons is a clean and fairly comfortable place to stay. the walls are pretty thin and we could hear TVs and people moving around in other rooms but if you bring earplugs you can get a good nights sleep as the beds are comfortable.

Hotel was clean and quiet, meeting expectations. We were looking for location close to the airport with easy access in and out as we were arriving late in the evening. Check in was quick and efficient. Room was prepared and almost cool (AC took care of that quickly). Refrigerator needed to be adjusted to a cooler setting as well. Price... More

1) one of the hardest places to find, especially at night. The crime ridden streets you're driving through makes you think you are in the wrong spot. You're not. 2) turns out its located inside a car impound lot. 3) after going through first security gate,(no one attending), our car was charged by two foreign men ( we thought we... More

However, this hotel was not well sound proof/ insulated because the airplane jets sounded as though they were in our room. did not sleep well at... More

I stayed here one night with my teenage sons as we were taking a cruise the next day. This dump is not worth the $100! They neglect to tell you that parking is 15 a day. It should be free to hotel guests. Super LOUD. The room faced the parking garage that they rent out. Kept me up all night... More

The room old and smell. We were not informed upon our arrival there were issues with AC unit. It was not until it got so unbearable and we complained that were informed there was a problem most of the day. It did not get fixed until about 11pm. No one ever answered front desk calls. To keep cool we had... More
