It was kind of hard to find at night since the entrance isn't clear. The motel is tired and in desperate need of an upgrade. The room itself looked old but was comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and professional. The only drawback is that people live there. So they have their doors opened late at night and seem... More

I have been in worse rooms, dirtwise....but the Howard Johnson room I stayed in last night in Santee S.C. brought bad cleaning to a whole new low. There was a syringe on the floor. Overall the place was a bit dirty, but this was an unsafe, unhealthy situation. This place needs to be cleaned better or shut down. The Howard... More

Traveling from NJ to FL and stopped here to stay the night with my 2 dogs. I thought Howard Johnson motels went out of business by the way. Decent room and grounds.

Room was smelling. One of the light did not work. Bed was too small for 2 people to sleep. Property is old and rundown and still using old analog TV. It need serious renovation.

The hotel is ok. It was cheap so I was not expecting much. It is pet friendly. No parking for big vehicles towing or moving trucks.

We always thought Howard Johnson enjoyed a fine reputation however we learned differently during our most recent stay on 3/27/15. The hotel is dingy, the rooms are dark and far from updated in any way. The blanket on the bed had holes in it, the bathroom walls had the remains of a dead bug embedded so that the outline of...
