Older hotel, older furnishings, but very clean. Fridge and microwave in room. Pool was clean and warm. Good breakfast selection in the morning. Wi-Fi was good. Very close to restaurants. Location was perfect for getting on and off the highway. Picked up hotel coupon book from rest area and got the rate of $45 a night. Would stay here again.

Husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to Florida. It was an decent hotel but not what we expect from a Howard Johnson. Close to restaurants and the highway. It seems like there are a lot of people actually living in the hotel not just staying there. It was ok if there isn't another hotel available... More

The worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I broke out in a rash covering my whole body within 10 minutes of being in the room, so I pulled the sheets back and there were yellow stains all over the mattress. The bathroom was dirty and a cockroach had claimed the room. The rooms close to mine were loud with adults... More

Great value for the price! Comfortable room, hardwood floor, comfortable bed, too comfortable easy chair. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Easily recommend. Good variety of restaurants nearby. Easy access to downtown Savannah using scenic route along Abercorn, or quicker route using Interstate. I will return to this place when visiting Savannah again. Don't understand negative comments as we were... More

Dear Valuable Guest, Bed bugs are a very serious issue in our industry today. This is not a subject to be taken lightly and one that is acted on immediately. Although we have our hotel inspected regularly for any evidence of bed bugs, we also follow up immediately on any guest concern. In this case, our contracted pest control provider... More
