“Not the worst.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This place was okay. It had a weird smell but overall wasn't too bad. We were right by the pool unfortunately, so there was a lot of noise. There was a fight between a man and woman that started in the hallway outside of our room and then they took it outside and unfortunately fought right outside our room's window. I was not fond of the location...it was a little uncomfortable to walk the dogs at night.
Housekeeping walked into our room without knocking in the morning. We still had a couple of hours before checkout time so it was awkward. My dogs nearly attacked the woman so she quickly closed the door. As we were leaving we received no apology from her, even though she made eye contact with me. My husband complained to the front desk and apparently this is routine for that particular maid.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stayed from Thursday 7/3/14 until Sunday 7/6/14. We had a few issues with certain things but Marlina at the front desk was the best. She bent over backwards to try and make sure that our stay was the best and that we were happy. She was the only reason I continued to over look any negative that we had and not that many anyway:-)

Television did not work properly on first night. Told clerk at front desk with negative results. Complained again next day and was finally fixed late on second day. The carpet was not vacumned once during our entire stay. The room only had one chair. I was told by clerk at front desk to talk to the maintenance man about getting an additional chair. I am sure this Howard Johnson Motel does not set the example of all Howard Johnson Motels.
