This isn't the most modern howard Johnson but it definitely has the expected howard Johnson charm and the manager was friendly and does run a good outfit. There did not seem to be a lot of staff (maybe because we arrived before peak season). I had to have the manager located to check me in while the wife and kids had the pizza buffet attached to the hotel. The slight delay mattered not because the manager knew how to communicate and make us feel welcome.
The staff working the buffet were great. We arrived late and he put out fresh chicken, made several fresh pizzas and cheesebread... more than we could eat. We were a party of 5 but it was late and they definitely could have tried to get away with the food that was out.
the kids really enjoyed the pool, hottub and game area. It is a cozy little place. The breakfast in the morning was not the most extensive but it was adequate.
