1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Competative nightly rate, central location but because it was a Howard Johnson brand we booked in there for 3 disappointing nights in the middle of December 2012.

Checked in at 2.00 P.M. and the room was below 0 temperture. The wall air conditioner/ heater kicked in sporatically. By bed time we needed more blankets to keep warm. Management unable to change rooms. Cold the whole night. Heater clicking in and out all night long. No sleep.

Security lock broken off door, two hangers for your clothes, no dresser and when you sat on the end of the bed the other end popped up and you ended up sitting on the floor.

A paint sale must have been on because of the array of mismatched colours in the room and bathroom. It was really painful to look at. Apprentice painters must have slapped the paint on the walls and everything else and then forgot to clean the filthy rug.

The shower did not maintain a constant tempertature, either ice cold or scalding hot. The toilet was so low you thought that you were sitting on the floor and it did not flush properly.

The sheets and bathroom towels had been washed so many times that they were so thin and thread bear you could almost see through them.

Breakfast, which is supposed to be included, is on from 6.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. Nothing left by 8.00 a.m. and management refuses to replenish.

The room did have a microwave, fridge and hair dryer which I did not use but could have had a coffee maker or access to WiFi, which would have been used. To get access to the internet I had to walk to the book store down the street.

Certainly not a hotel to be recommended. Drastic disappointment for the Howard Johnson brand.

Friendly and helpful staff. King bed in a good-sized room, although an older building. It had a frig and microwave oven. The free wifi did not work.

I do thank you for your comments and/or suggestions. I have noted the internet issue and will look into the matter to ensure its properly working for our future guests stay. I do apologize regarding the condition of the place as it is an older property however we will be undergoing a renovation here very soon to get the property up to date. I do thank you again for the comments.
