Attempted to stay, entered a filthy, freezing room. You could actually see your breath. It was 20 degrees outside, and not much warmer inside. Turned the heat on, heater worked, but after waiting about an hour with our coats on, decided to go elsewhere. Still too cold. Room was disgusting anyway. Dead roaches in the bathroom light, broken light fixtures,... More

This was a late booking while driving down 95. We got a decent price on the HJ website, and just needed somewhere to lay our heads for the night. This hotel has clearly seen better days (probably in the 1980's), but the staff were friendly and the beds comfortable. We skipped the breakfast buffet. It did not look terribly appealing.... More

Staying at this motel was a mistake. We were lured to it by a discount coupon that was not honored by the manager. We were too tired to argue or travel on. The room was minimally clean and the free breakfast was very poor. Do not stay here.

I was surprised to see the lack of maintenance at a Howard Johnson. I turned the heat on and a spark shot out and turned off all the heat in that section. I believe a professional cleaning crew should come there. The hi-lite was the checking in. The woman was very nice and professional. She was a pleasure.

Very clean , nice, coffee pot and coffee in the room & the price was right. Bharat Shah was very helpful, and gave us lots of hints of where to go to dinner, shopping & sight seeing. Would recommend for couples and singles.

Hotel was run down and in desperate need of remodeling. Sheets looked dirty, mold in bathroom, and the carpet was filthy. Consider sleeping in your car instead of staying here!

This, to me, was a great value for the money and area. The Comfort Inn across the street was double the price, if that gives you some perspective. There were some very minor inconvenient things: a missing towel rack on the sink outside the bathroom (it had one side's holder still in place), the mount for the shower sprayer was... More

Room had a small cockroache run across my computer screen, dead bugs on floor beside sink, critter walking in the tub; someone's underwear behind the headboard of the bed, curtain broken; weatherstripping under door missing; trash around building; ceiling falling down in entry way. Bed was comfortable, breakfast area was mediocre and not up to expected standard. PM & AM... More
