5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This hotel definitely exceeds the standards from any other Howard Johnson I've been to. This location is very well-appointed with the modern rooms and it is very clean. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and breakfast was simple but delicious. My children especially enjoyed the hot chocolate chip cookies and popcorn that were available in the afternoon. This is an excellent and affordable place to stay near the town, I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family!

This place was wonderful and absolutely charming! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to relax just a little bit away from the noises of the cluster of hotels in town. The staff was very friendly and We will definitely return!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had a one-night stay - smooth check-in, and the room is spacious and well appointed (and reasonably clean). The bathroom is very dated (can't remember the last time I had such a low toilet). We found maintenance weaknesses when we returned (late at night), and went to wash up. The sink didn't drain properly, and the tub took 2 hours to drain from a shower. We told the management the next morning, and their only comment was "thanks for letting us know." The breakfast area was busy, and they did have a person trying to keep up, but it was apparent that either they were not used to the traffic, or they were not equipped to serve more than a few people for breakfast. All in all, it was a dissapointing stay.
