I would definitely come again! I originally booked the Super 8 and was disgusted by the filth and smell of our room. After seeing another room I called Howard Johnson to see if they could accommodate us last minute. Not only did I get a full refund from super 8, but the manager at HoJo gave us a discount and...

Stayed there for a family funeral. Will never stay there again, and I wouldn't if I was you. It smelled terrible and caused my sister to have an asthma attack. Blood on the walls and dirty. The maid stole our candy and food. The front desk did not care about our complaints. When I returned home, I complained to corporate... More

To call this place terrible is an understatement. My family and I stayed here while on vacation and I wish I could turn back the hands and time and stop myself. I should have know from the time we got to the hotel that I should take me family some place else. From the moment we walked in the place... More

We went on a weekend get away for a ball game and found this on priceline as a "2 star". HA! As soon as you walk in, the smell hits you like a ton of bricks. Smells like mold, mildew, and weed! It's filthy. Dried up pee all around the bottom of the toilet and floor. Hair in our shower.... More

No bugs here from what I can see. Place is kept clean - rooms, lobby, and grounds. No obvious mold anywhere. Rooms need updating and items replaced - but it won't affect your stay if you are tired. The bed, however, may seriously trash your back! Strongest Positives: Girl working front desk on check in - college student studying biology... More

I stay on the road a lot and search every hotel in the area at the time of stay. I found the Howard Johnson to be one of the cleanest, spacious and prices no one else could beat around. When I first checked in, I was greeted with a warm welcoming. I would recommend the hotel to any one who... More

I have stayed at this hotel in the past on quite a few occasions as it fairly priced and a great location for my reasons of travel. I have to say the owner has definitely put some hard work and money into his establishment, something that may have fallen short in the past. They had a newly renovated front lobby... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your great words of wisdom and we definitely appreciate your business. As a single proprietor it is difficult to be able to renovate all 100 plus rooms at the same time financially, however we are trying very hard and we have come a far way and still more to go....

OMG! where do I start? I am not one of those that gives a bad review because the front desk person was rude or breakfast wasn't what I thought it should be or the mattress was hard etc. The room was downright filthy.

We would like to start by apologizing profusely for your bad experience at our hotel and Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. You are correct when you state that the “Owners are nice but I get the sense that they don't supervise the cleaning people or do random spot checks because it is obvious that the maids... More
