The check in clerk went above and behind to accommodate our needs. My husband had just had a knee surgery and she was able to put us on the first floor. Even though it was a smoking room, it wasn't that bad a smell. Didn't get the breakfast or use the swimming pool, but I'm sure it would have been good.

Dear Gary P and family,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your recent trip to Tallahassee. I am glad that the desk clerk was able to accommodate you and your husband. Our desk clerks truly appreciate the kind recognition by our guests. Since this trip was so quick for you, I hope you do come back for a longer stay so you can relax poolside and enjoy the local attractions throughout Tallahassee. Thank you again for staying with us. We hope your husband's knee has gotten better. Have a terrific day!

Great deal for the money. Room is clean except for smoke odor. Lobby is small and no business office. Must use clerks computer to print off airline boarding tickets. Would be helpful if continental breakfast was served for a longer perior of time. Room where breakfast is served is very small and difficult to access when other people are there.

Hi Carol R,
Thank you for your review! We are glad that you were happy with the value you received during your stay. Sorry you found your room a little smoky. We try our best to prevent smoking in non-smoking rooms. Please let us know if you have any issues during your stay, and we'll try our best to solve them for you in a prompt manner. I agree that our breakfast area can get cramped especially on busy days. That is why, unlike many hotels, we don't mind if you prefer to take breakfast back to your room. We even place trays in the rooms just in case that is your preference. Next, I am very glad the front desk was able to help you print your boarding passes. We are always glad to help our guests! Thank you again for staying with us. We look forward to having you as a guest on your next trip to Tallahassee. Have a wonderful day!

We love staying here!! Our room is always clean and comfortable, and the continental breakfast is always satisfying (love the waffles!). The management and staff are always courteous and concerned that we enjoy our stay. Right off the highway and conveniently located to everything. Since the very first time we stayed here, we've been made to feel like old friends. We are about to begin our fourth (or fifth) year of doing business with the wonderful people of this Howard Johnson Express. Our son is at FSU for a couple more years and this is always our choice when we're in Tallahassee.

This hotel is in need of some updating. The toilet rocked back and forth when I sat down and repairs are needed on the walls along with a fresh coat of paint. Our party of 3 arrived for the free breakfast 10 minutes before it was to end along with another couple, the attendant left 1 slice of bread, 2 mini muffins, and a danish out I can only assume she didn't want to have a lot of food to put away. When my husband asked for a cherry danish she did accommodate him. Pool is very small.

Hi luvtravel11, thank you for your comments to help improve our services to our guests. I apologize for your inconveniences. I have sent you a private message to get the details of the room you stayed in so I can have maintenance address the issues you raised. Please respond back and I'll be happy to offer you a discounted stay on your next trip through town. We would love the opportunity to show to you the commitment of service that we strive for that keeps our guests coming back. I also apologize for the perception that we were clearing the breakfast area early. We try to keep items wrapped and refrigerated in the back as much as possible to keep them fresh and bring them out as needed. We do ask guests coming in what we can get for them, and as you mentioned, are happy to provide items even if it extends past the breakfast hours. We are glad that you found the location and value for the price paid favorable. We do hope we see you and your family on your next trip and look forward to making your stay wonderful. Have a great day!
