It is an old hotel but doable for the money. The room was clean and the bathroom clean. The ac worked great at least in our room. I do wish they had espn on the tv. Pool was ok with no glaring faults. Hey if you want flawless then you're going to pay a heck of a lot more money... More

I travel a lot for business and vacation both and have seen a lot of hotels in many different countries.

Stayed here for 2 nights Thursday-Saturday. All in all I have no real complaints. Yes it used to be a Howard Johnsons way back, but it is pretty decent. The fact that it was a Ho Jo has nothing to do with anything. The room (2 Queen Beds) was pretty clean with the exception of a small rip in the... More

This was our second stay at this hotel in about a year, and we have already been talking about another trip. We booked the waterpark package for the weekend as a birthday getaway for my 11 yr old. We spent about 10 hours altogether in the waterpark area- very clean, nice locker area with great showers if you need them,... More

Well what can I say, this place is your spot when you are on a tight budget. I gave this hotel the green light because they stated they had a INDOOR WATERPARK. They do ! But they will not tell you upfront or on the website that it is ONLY OPEN ON WEEKENDS ! I checked in on Monday to... More

This is an old Howard Johnson's hotel renamed. So it is in need of much repair. Black mold on refrigerator seal. Tried to clean but wouldn't come off. Carpet so needed shampooed. Bathroom was clean but decor was very outdated. Drain did drain. A plus I guess. Walls were yellow so much that you could tell a picture had hung... More
