“Smelly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2008

The room smelled like mildew and the halls had trash sitting out by the doors. It looked as though most of the rooms were rented by the week or month to locals.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2006

I've seen past reviews on this property and I wanted to help set the record straight. Recent stay shows that the property staff must have had alot of turnover because all that I interacted with were friendly and helpful. Property has a had physical improvements, too - now has wireless internet throughout. Pool reconstruction is about to begin and the lobby moving to face the highway. I plan on returning.

The employee at the front desk was rude when we checked in. The pool was just a hole of dirt with water in the hole. Our room smelled like mildew. Our floor and chairs were damp. There were cobwebs on the lights over our beds and on the clock. The air conditioner was dirty on the top of it. I would not stay there ever again. The Howard Johnson Hotel seemed more like an apartment building than a hotel.

The positive of this establishment is that it allows pets. The negatives are the rude and unhelpful desk staff, the general ugly appearance of the grounds, and the scuzzy nature of the clientele.

The front of the hotel is actually not even properly labelled but instead has a restaurant face on it. The parking lot was strewn with blocks of asphalt and trash.
