Was there with friends during the weekend event of the Elvis Explosion. Very enjoyable time, meeting all of the "Tribute Artists". Anyway, their were 3 of us ladies sharing a very nice comfortable room. Very clean, quiet room. Staff were very friendly, nice, helpful too. We also enjoyed the Free Breakfast offered to Guests. Nothing big, but plenty of choices,... More

The service staff at the hotel was great to work with. We came in at 11pm and got checked into our room in record time. The room was so-so and the bed was really uncomfortable, you could feel every spring and major depression in the middle (rm 241) . Place needs major updating but overall good value for the buck.

This is a nice hotel for the money. The location is good, near downtown and not far off the highway. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room was just ok. Long walk through the hotel to get to my room. It does need updating, old furniture and no comfortable chairs in the room.

I've been staying at the Howard Johnson's every other week since March and the staff is amazing. They remember who I am, remember what rooms work best for me and my family, and even have returned personal amenities forgotten at the previous visit. The hotel is older in decor and furnishings, but we have never had any issues with cleanliness... More
