Its ok motel with basic amenities. Price was very attractive but not the neighborhood. Its OK for one night stay if you are single and you don't bother about neighborhood.

First time I have ever written a review. Cab driver said we'd be safe if we didn't open the door. He became our friend very soon and took us to another hotel. My wife is no longer in charge of "finding us someplace cheap for the night". Do not stay here, even if you are high school kids looking for... More

Since my flight was getting in late I just wanted a hotel right near the airport, for one night. I was wary of choosing this place, but I did. I liked that they offered a free shuttle service. However when I called them, they refused to come pick me up (something about how late it was), even though I had... More

When assessing this hotel the word "hotel" is very misleading. We stayed here in August along with our six pets as evacuees from Hurricane Irene. The Airport Plaza "Hotel" is less a hotel and more of a really, really amazing and affordable hostel. If you approach it with this mindset you will not be disappointed. This "hotel" is a wonderful...

My family stayed here for a family reunion for three nights. This place was Run Down! Looks absolutely nothing like the pictures posted online. This place has only one working elevator and it smelled of body odor. All of the rooms were dirty, poorly lit and smelled musty, combined with body odor/urine. The bathrooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned... More

by far the most run down, dirty, scariest place I have ever stayed. Rooms smelled of mold (and who knows what else)-burn holes and stains on the blankets and sheets. I found a lava of some sort on the sheets. The carpets smelled-toliet had molded all around the bottome. Hairs (from down there) were all over the bedspread and blanket.... More

I've never written a hotel review before but after one night at the Roanoke Howard Johnson, I feel the need to warn others. My room smelled like cat pee, my mother's smelled like bug spray. When we pulled the stained comforter down, the bed sheets actually had cigarette burns! There was a can of bug spray visable in the hall... More

Stayed here for a night recently. It is a mess. Photos on the hotel website must be years out of date. Place is very run down - grounds are overgrown, paint has flaked of the walls and is all over the grounds. Business Centre ! is 2 old PCs in the grotty lobby and all the keyboards stick. Owners don't... More

Traveling back from North Carolina to PA, we stopped overnight to stay at this hotel because they allow dogs. We have a small and well behaved chihuahua. The rates seemed really reasonable and they included an "expanded" breakfast. We arrived at the front desk around midnight. First bad sign was that the check in guy was super slow, took forever...
