We hadn't stay in a Howard Johnson for years and it was the nicest motel we stayed in while on our trip. Staff was friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. A nice breakfast and a very reasonable rate. When back that way we will stay at it again.

I don't mind staying in a low budget place - I can do without the amenities if the place is clean. There was trash in the areas where there was grass (weeds) which happened to be about 8-10 inches tall. The place smelled in every area I passed through.

The best thing to say about this hotel is the front desk staff. Kori is super sweet and helpful.

My husband and I stayed at the Howard Johnson for 2 nights. The clerk on duty, Kori, was so kind and polite. My husband felt better staying there since Kori spoke spanish and he could ask her for anything he needed while I went to my meeting. The other front desk staff were also polite and informative. The room is... More
