“Surprisingly great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

After a long drive from South Florida, a quick night sleep was in order. Howard Johnson advertised what I thought was a teaser rate on a billboard turned out to be the actual rate. It was an excellent place considering the budget rate and compared favorably with other motels charging much higher prices. This place reminded me of the value Howard Johnson was noted for a few decades a go. Very comfortable bed, mini fridge, small microwave and a small couch rounded out the extras. Fairly comprehensive continental breakfast included.

As soon as entering room had to clean toilet. Then after trying to flush the toilet it was clogged. Took about 45 minutes for some one to fix it. I would have but they didn't have a plunger for me to use. Floor dirty in vanity area and bathroom. Hair! We paid 97.00 a night because it was last minute. Would never had stayed here, but traffic was at a stand still we were trying to get home to Detroit. Our hands were bound. After getting here, I would rather suffer in the car.

It was supposed to be a free night. The staff person at the counter charged the room saying she couldn't believe they let someone book a free night. The next day upon checkout a different person said the previous had booked it incorrectly. Maybe it was just one bad employee, but most times that is all it takes.

I saw people smoking crack outside of this hotel. It smelled bad like someone puked on the television. The sheets were clean but the comforter was not. The hotel is close to some bars so you can drink yourself to sleep. I did hear that the real life Forest Gump lives right around the corner.

Room Tip: Choose a different place to stay.
