“Decent Stay for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Decent place to stay for my 3 nights in Bethel area. It was a bit worn, but suitable. Staff pleasant. Breakfast was adequate: cereal, toast, bagels, danish, juice & coffee.
Wi-Fi wasn't working 1st night; a bit slow when working.
Overall, decent place for the price. I would stay here again

It is a value. Room was clean, fridge and microwave was a plus. Real king size bed. The TV was older tube type but, worked fine. Good location to highway good diner across the street.

I really rarely write reviews but this hotel deserves it. I'm currently here right now and it's a very clean hotel. Front desk uncle was very nice and accommodated our needs very well even though we checked in early. Location was close to lots of restaurants- we are attending a wedding nearby so needed a place to change and this was a last minute deal on Priceline and it is perfect! Beds are comfy, linens are clean and there's also a microwave and fridge in every room- can't beat that for $50! Honestly a very clean room and nice staff, outdoors could look a little but more lively but well kept indoors and I would recommend!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I have never stayed at a Howard Johnson before so I don't have any other visits to compare to but this one is just ok. We only stayed one night and were just looking for a clean place for a night. The air conditioner didn't really work, the compressor didn't kick on and blew a musty smell around. We complained and had maintenance come and was able to get the knob to work, it just spun and didn't do anything. We had a long day of driving and just planned on relaxing in the room to only find out the tv remote didn't have any batteries, so we changed the channels the old fashion way.
Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again mainly because it seems to be starting to get a little worn out. The property is getting to the point to where they need to sink some money in and put in some fresh heat/ac units, carpet, linens, etc. or the place will definitely not be somewhere I will want to stay.

Called early in the day to double check that a late arrival was OK. They were helpful and accommodating. The woman behind the counter during check in was very friendly and helpful, I'm sorry O didn't catch her name, but she impressed me with her friendly and warm demeanor. I checked in around 11 pm on the 24th of January. The heater was on in the room when I arrived, but was blowing cold air. After fiddling with it for a while it finally got warm, but perhaps it should be serviced? I agree with a previous review, it's off-putting to come into your room and have it be colder than the hall way when you've just come inside from well below freezing temps. The paint in the bathroom was peeling around the edges and bubbling from what appears to be water damage in some spots. Other than that, everything was clean and in working order.
