“Powdered Eggs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Upon arrival the front desk clerk knew exactly who I greeting me by name. Room was nice, although I was in non smoking handi accessible room there was to much furniture in room to move around. Room smelled of cigarette smoke upon entering. Window that is aprox. 2 ft. off ground was unlocked and track was filled with ashes. I was excited to see breakfast menu featured eggs, biscuits & gravy yum. Until I arrived next AM to find powdered eggs, microwaved hash browns and no biscuits & gravy available. Another bowl of cereal it was. Otherwise it was a good experience

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

we were very happy with this hotel. It was very clean. The room was spacious enough, and had fridge/ microwave/coffeepot , sink area outside of bathroom, plenty of places to put clothes, had a good breakfast - scrambled eggs, hash browns, gravy, cereals, grits, bagels, mini muffins, toast, fresh fruit, make your own waffles, asstd juices, coffee, and tea. If you weren't happy with this breakfast, there is a Huddle House restaurant close by. Had nice pool outside. It is a smaller size hotel, but it was nice, for a place to stay, and rest.

Room Tip: if you don't have the kids with you, get the king bed room

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

This is strictly a "stop and sleep" hotel. Not enjoyable and even though it offers free breakfast, I didn't enjoy that either. The breakfast room is a converted hotel room and is small and cramped. The room was okay but there was a used washcloth hanging on the shower curtain bar. The walls are thin and people are all over the place outside, walking around and one guy had no shoes on and was panhandling, I guess.

Even though this hotel was a bit hard to find because of road work, it certainly was worth the effort. The whole properpy, inside and out, was nice and clean looking. Although the bedroom was a bit small, ot was very clean and the bed was great. The extra pillows I requested when I made the reservaton were there waiting.
All in all, even the Continental breakfast looked pretty good with a selection of dry cereals, assorted breads and pastries, and even scrambled eggs! And the coffee was pretty good, better than some hogher priced hotels.
This is my second positive experience with Howard Johnsons so you cab bet I will be staying at others in the future.
