“Excellent Value on Many Fronts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Decided to take a couple day get-away to T.C. ... visit the brewerys, enjoy the shops... Couldn't believe the value offered by Howard Johnson. Newly renovated and beautiful. Great tiled bath with large walk-in shower...room was clean and good looking. The front office lounge/breakfast area was also redone and is a gift for travelers of all ages.

This HJ was recently renovated, there are a few spots outside the need to be finnished yet, loose carpet on the stairs was a trip hazard. Staff was great at check in. Room are new and very clean. The matress is a differeent story, very firm but stag in the middle, saw this in other comments also. Rooms could use and iron and iron board. Great value and very quiet. Lighting is poor in room and watch the water in the shower, it changes temp on its own.
