I went to the Howard Johnson to rent their jacuzzi room. It actually has a jacuzzi that TWO people can fit in. This is the reason we ended up there. The hotel we held a reservation at had a bath tub with jets, and the second hotel we tried to stay at have a jacuzzi to fit one person. I... More

Check in was a total nightmare, took forever, patience is required. If you are fortunate enough to make it past the incompetent staff at the front desk and archaic system, the smell of the dirty carpet and smoke will for sure send you running back to your car, you're better off sleeping there. Service-Yikes! This place should be closed on... More

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
