There were pubic hairs on the sheets when I pulled back the covers. And Not just one but many different shapes and sizes. There were termites in the bathroom and I hated the overall experience.

First time I ever stayed at the H.J., I was pleasantly surprised. A little better house cleaning (the bedding), and more modern television plus channel viewing would be a big improvement.

This was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at.. I always stay at Howard Johnsons and this one should not have that name.

Very nice people. The attendant was very well informed and very helpful. The place has recently come under some renovation. The room was nice and clean and there were lots of accommodations in the area. I recommend this place and will stay here again for sure.

Keep on going to the next place. Pulled up and in the parking lot was a huge, empty, "circus" tent with literally no way to drive around it- but the hotel room was directly behind the tent, so no way to keep your vehicle in sight from your room.
